Plot / Description

This commercial shows a man at the ATM wanting to make a withdrawal. The prompt on the screen is telling him there will be a $3 charge, and asking him if he wants to accept it. The man behind him tells him, "That's what they do, accept it." The man continues contemplating, and an huge montage of people tell him that he should just accept the charges including a woman jogging, a man hiking, a doctor / surgeon in an operating room, a farmer feeding his cows, two men moving a couch, a couple at dinner, a group of cheerleaders, a large man in the pool, and finally his girlfriend who is waiting on him to get the money so they can go to a movie.

You can't change the way banking works, just accept it, man. 
Free? Doesn't close a 5. Try nature. 
You give them all your money and they put you on hold, just accept it. 
What are you going to do, bury all your money in the back yard, accept it. 
Just stay with the herd, son. Accept it. 
It's only money. 
It's a bank. What do you want? A hug? 
Just accept it, friend. 
Hidden fees, fine print, or they'll just stick it to you some other way. 
Smile and accept it. 
It's been this way since pants. 
Accept it. Accept it. Accept it. Accept it. Accept it. 
I'm a doctor, just accept it. 
If we miss this movie, you're dead.
