I really thought this was a parody ad, and I still can't quite believe it isn't
I mean, just look at this. Money-obsessed jackasses who haven't quite figured out that no matter how much time they spend attempting to manipulate their pile into something larger, forces beyond their control and which don't give a flying damn about them will ultimately determine what happens to it. Said money-obsessed human pigs pretending to watch the world go by while gigantic "I" letters fly about, revealing that all that really matters to them is that money. And all the time, some song containing a single letter- the only letter that counts to these people-repeated over and over again in the background.
I Trade. I maneuver. I Shift and Position and Invest and create pie charts. I get constant updates on my I Phone or my I Pad. I pore over Information. What's going on right now in my life is ok and everything, but what I'm concerned with is what comes Next- when I am old and I can't earn any more money through actual work. So I am going to spend my fleeting youth looking at symbols and percentage rates and dividends and points, while the planet spins around me and the suckers who think that having fun and doing non-money stuff is going to get them anywhere.
And all the time, I'll be doing it to my favorite tune. It's a lovely song with only one word which sums up my life. "I.....I, I.......I, I........"
