    Why did Mel ever agree to do this commercial?

    Why did Mel ever agree to do this commercial?

    In this promo spot on CNBC Mel says, "The stock price is your report card."

    Wouldn't Mel get an F- then?

    well i would say your stock price in a economically stable market could be a report card, his report card now is dependent on how he can handle this credit crisis.

    That was filmed over a year and a half ago...when the merger was still in limbo and the stock price was still over 3.50. I was at Sirius the day CNBC came by.

    I am going to answer my own question....

    I think Mel agreed to do this CNBC promo in 2007 because he thought it would be good free advertising for Sirius and I assume that he was confident in the company's prospects and thought the share price would rise at the time...
