In the Super Bowl spot, called “Save It”, the E*TRADE Baby demonstrates just
how much money is at stake in hidden 401(k) account fees by playing out
over-the-top spending sprees that could be paid for with the money spent on
fees. In the end, the Baby offers a better idea, “come to E*TRADE, and Save
It.”
