JPMorgan, You're Embarrassing Yourself

Now this is just getting ridiculous…

JPMorgan Chase, one of the lead underwriters on the highly anticipated Facebook IPO, has already adorned its midtown Manhattan office today with massive banners, “Like” buttons and a flag dedicated to the social networking site.¬†

Now the bank has really gone over-the-top by issuing Facebook IPO coffee sleeves and baseball caps that read “Facebook IPO.”

Any guesses with what they’ll do next? We’re thinking fleece jackets with Zuck’s face on the lapel.
