Plot / Description

This is a television commercial for the 2016 film 'War Dogs'. 
Based on a true story, “War Dogs” follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts. Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a 300 million dollar deal to arm the Afghan Military—a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government.

Hey, baby. 
Did I wake you? 
No, I'm just at the hotel. We're about to have some breakfast.  
Listen, I get why you're doing this. It's just the lying that kills me. I need you to know that you can tell me anything, baby. Baby? 
Yeah, I gotta call you right back. 
Is everything OK? 
Yeah, everything's fine, OK. I love you, bye. 
Go! Go! 
My name is David Packouz. I'm 22 years old and I'm an international arms dealer. Six months ago, I was a massage therapist in Miami Beach.  
Sorry. It fell. 
And now, here I was with my friend from junior high. 
I think you should come work for me. 
I'm against this war.  
This isn't about being pro-war. This is about being pro-money.  
How did two twenty-something young men land a $300 million Pentagon contract? 
You told me you guys were selling bed sheets.  
I also told you that we're selling other stuff, too. 
I thought you meant pillows! 
God bless Dick Cheney's America! 
A hundred million rounds of AK ammo? He can fill the whole order.  
I'm barred from doing any business with the U.S. Government. I'm on a watch list. 
You're on a terrorist watch list? 
Do you work for Homeland Security? Relax, bro.  
This is the job - to do business with the people the US government can't do business with directly. 
We're on the verge of making $300 million. 
Is that legal? 
It's not illegal. 
I'm not a bad man. But in certain situations I have to ask myself, what would a bad man do? 
Is this safe? Driving to Baghdad?  
Very safe. 50/50. 
What like, 50% we live, 50% we die? 
Yes. This is why we drive through the night, is much safer.  
How much safer? 
What the...
