Found Spelling Error on Website

So I'm writing a paper about one of the major brokerages for my class. It's 3:30am right now but somehow still caught it. On one of the main pages there is a spelling error where they used 'your' instead of 'you're'. I would like to work there after graduation and this may be a neat way of showing them that "I pay attention to detail" lol. How should I bring it up? By an HR manager, cover letter, just in the interview?

I'm very particular about these things and have noticed errors on other major sites before. How do I casually bring this up without sounding extra

use a throw-away email account and email the webmaster.

don't bring this up in any business related comms channel (HR, interview, business meeting, ..)

or tweet them, with anonymous account/alter ego, or even use your actual name if you want.

Don't bring it up at all, reach out to brokers there and get on calls with them - alumni/warm leads first. This isn't going to make them hire you and won't help your case.

Yup, from there perspective it's not a big deal. They're worried about what's going on with their current deals, getting offers, tours, etc and this is really minor. Ask about deal you see they're on on their website and about them.
