Greed, apparently, is not so good.
Oscar winner Michael Douglas, who famously glamorized insider trading villain Gordon Gekko in two “Wall Street” features, just cut a public service announcement warning against … wait for it … corporate greed.
The commercial denounces corporate greed after opening with a flashback to a famous scene from the film “Wall Street.”
In it, Douglas’ character Gordon Gekko reminds television audiences that “Greed is good.”
The PSA then cuts to Douglas, who says: “The movie was fiction but the problem is real.”
The commercial is part of an ongoing offensive by federal authorities in New York against insider trading.
