Plot / Description
"The Surprise: A Short Film by INTERAC*"
Some lessons come from the most unexpected places.
This ad shows a little boy who sees several puppies while out with his parents. The next day is his birthday and he gets a toy as well as a piggy bank. The boy looks at his piggy bank often over the days and months as he does odd jobs for his neighbors like washing cars and scraping paint. While he's working, he watches people with dogs and still wants one. He moves on to delivering newspapers, looking for money with a metal detector on the beach, and even getting money from the tooth fairy. Finally the big day comes when the piggy bank is full and his dad gives him a hammer to break it. The boy is sad to see his pig go. The dad is proud of his son's saving, so he goes to the pet store, and instead of coming home with a puppy, he comes home with a baby pig which the boy loves.

Credit. Actually, make that a direct debit.
I'm lost in the light
I pray for the night
To take me, to take you too
After so many words
Still nothing's heard
Don't know what we should do
So if someone can see me now, let them see you
It was my greatest thrill
But we just stood still
You let me hold your hand 'til I had my fill
Even countin' sheep
Don't help me sleep
I just toss and turn right there beside you
So if someone could help me now, they'd help you too.
They'd help you too
See you through
All the hard things we've all gotta do
Cause this life is long
And so you wouldn't be wrong
Bein' free leavin' me on my own!
It feels good to use your own money.
Be in the black
