I love Mike Tyson. He was the absolute dominator in his prime. There hasn’t been a fighter like him since. But it’s really hard to fall for this ad. Associating Mike Tyson to online trading…I’m not sure that’s a smart move. Mike Tyson can punch really hard. That’s his thing. I don’t know if you have heard him speak, but it doesn’t rhyme with forex or futures’ trading. What’s even more ridiculous is the note in the bottom left corner stating that U.S. citizens cannot trade on Trade12. I’m pretty sure Mike is a U.S. citizen and if he’s trading on Trade12 that would make what he’s doing illegal. I don’t think Mike is trading. He just sold his image because he’s broke (again why would that be a good person to promote making money?) But I would love to have Mike as a counter-party (in trading, not in the ring).
I don’t think the ads got much traction. There’s two videos on Youtube has about 300 views combined since July.
