The spot also featured a Britney Spears bop.
The year was 2008. Katy Perry was taking over the radio, Twilight was taking over the box office, and a new icon was taking over TV: the E*Trade baby. The adorable spokesperson made his TV debut at the 2008 Super Bowl, and remained a fan fave until his “early” retirement in 2014.
