    Sigh.

    At least that article was't focused on it like a few other smaller news sites I've seen.

    Ponies and politics really don't mix... (it doesn't make for good satire, nor is it very friendshipy)

    So to be clear here, this is the NASDAQ, not the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The NASDAQ doesn't have a trading floor; it's an electronic exchange. And while it has a physical office presence, these are essentially standard business offices for the different brokerages. So when you see people ringing the bell on TV and it actually being kind of a big deal, you're thinking of the NYSE, which has an actual trading floor.

    The NASDAQ MarketSite is essentially a meeting and promotional space for NASDAQ companies, composed of a meeting hall and a TV studio with a large video wall. The entire purpose of the studio is for hosting NASDAQ opening/closing bell stunts like this.



    Market Bell Ceremonies at the Nasdaq MarketSite in New York’s Times Square serves as a platform to generate exposure for your company, make a news announcement or celebrate corporate milestones. Hosted by a Nasdaq senior executive, the Opening and Closing Bells allow listed companies to address a wide audience with specific messages. Choreographed by a professional event planner, each ceremony is carefully designed to showcase your company on the Nasdaq Webcam, MarketSite Tower and participating television networks such as CNBC, Bloomberg TV, Fox Business News and many others - reaching millions of viewers worldwide.
    In other words, you can rent out the NASDAQ opening/closing bell as a promotional stunt, which is exactly what Hasbro is doing here. A specific price wasn't listed, but it doesn't sound too expensive. (For reference, Animal Planet did it on the 10th)

    He still has his moments. That just wasn't one of them.

    (Actually, the joke had potential. However the execution didn't work for it. It seems like it should have been left as a standup punchline)
