In BrownCo's "Asterisk" BrownCo mocks its competitors who have too much fine print in their paperwork. A woman asks a broker questions about maintenance and inactivity fees. Each time the Broker gives the woman the answers she'd like to hear, another man comes from behind the desk and gives an exception to the broker's answer while the broker sits with a pleasant smile on his face. "Who is that?" the woman asks, to which the broker replys, "oh that's asterisk, don't mind him." A voiceover says, "Get serious. Get BrownCo."
