Interactive Brokers Ad Mocks Occupy Movement: 'Join The 1%' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

This should test Occupy Wall Street's sense of humor.

A commercial for Interactive Brokers, a trading service company, depicts barricaded virtual protesters thrusting their fists and waving signs at the New York Stock Exchange.

"Occupy Wall Street!" the commercial chirps. "Get an edge by doing your research and trading with Interactive Brokers." After panning across several signs that tout the benefits of Interactive Brokers, the announcer ends with an instruction: "Join The 1%."

The New York Times, which spotted the ad, points out that even comedy shows have been careful to balance mockery of financial bureaucrats and the Occupy movement itself. But here, it seems the gloves have come off.
