Plot / Description

"Visa | The Carpool to Rio - feat. Team Visa Olympians Ashton Eaton and Missy Franklin" 
This ad begins with Olympic Gold Medalist, Valerie Adams in bed with her alarm going off. She reaches over, but instead of just turning it off, she throws it through the wall of her house and it lands in her neighbor's yard. She gets up and starts her day by pre-ordering her morning drink with Visa Checkout on her phone. She drives to the local ferry where she picks up the drink she ordered. , but instead of getting on the ferry, she just parks in the lot and swims across the water (faster than the boat). Olympic swimmer, Missy Franklin also meets up with the ferry - after swimming next to it for a while. The two of them pick up two synchronized divers in a minivan, and a decathlete. They pass by a gymnast flipping down the highway before they stop for gas (paying with Visa, of course) and seeing a runner pass by. They continue on and a biking team passes them as they drive down the highway. They end up stopping at another gas station later on to pick up some snacks, and it is full of athletes as well. We follow more runners, a Taekwondo athlete who kicks down a door, volleyball players. All these athletes are making they way to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the 2016 Olympic Games.
