Charles Schwab & Co, Omnicom Group's GSD&M, Austin, Texas

Published on .

With the delightfully visual line of "Let's put some lipstick on this pig," Schwab takes you into the boiler room as a fictitious team leader doles out the stock to push to his minions. "Just don't mention the fundamentals, they stink." Voice-over assures that Schwab never pushes stock, only that it's a good time to get into the market with Schwab's guidance-unless you have a failing for pigs in lipstick.
