Invasion of the Beta Snatchers

Be careful if you watch CNBC, even with the sound down. Because aliens are after your hard-earned money.

Or so it seems, seeing this ad for MFS Investment Management on NBC’s business news channel recently.

Not sure which is creepier. The hyper-real, freckled-complexion lighting. Or the pulsating rectangle pupils.

Probably not a great investment when the mutual fund manager’s primary brand differentiator is the geometric shape in its logo.

But, then again, people sure seem to like talking babies.
