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.

How will you be paying? 
Credit, please. Come on buddy. Let's go. 
Look at our credit card bill. 
How would you like to pay? 
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.
