But it was a rather funny commercial for E*Trade.
I love the set-up: the guy in the middle seat leaning against the poor man on the aisle and the brat behind kicking the seat.
Then the man journeys up toward the first class cabin, taking in its opulence as he pears through the curtain. A smiling FA dressed in a suspciously-similar uniform to Emirates smiles and walks over to the man. He smiles back, thinking he will be invited in.
Instead, she slams the curtain closed in his face. He returns to his seat with a dejected look on his face.
“FIRST CLASS IS THERE TO REMIND YOU YOU’RE NOT IN FIRST CLASS”
We can’t help in the kid-kicking-your-seat department but we can help in the taking-control-of-your-finances-so-you-can-plan-your-financial-dreams department. Don’t Get Mad. Get E*TRADE. The Original Place To Invest Online.
It’s a funny ad.
But I take a different philosophy on first class. No, first class is not there to remind us we are not in it. First Class is merely an opportunity for us to use points and miles wisely to secure it at a price far cheaper than the chumps who pay full price. That’s how I look at first class…
