Plot / Description

"Meet Billy: The boy who captured the stars" 
This commercial is about a young couple in love. Billy and Charlotte loved to sit and talk outside at night while looking up at the stars in their rural neighborhood. One day, however, Charlotte and her family moved to the big city leaving poor Billy behind. Unfortunately, in the city, you really can't see the stars. Billy gets the idea to bring the stars to her, so he begins a project. He tries photos, videos, and a lot of research, but can't seem to get the results he wants. Then he starts using his Dell laptop, and is able to create the perfect video/images of the night sky which he sends off to Charlotte. At the end, we see Billy laying in the grass looking up at the stars while Charlotte lays in her room holding her tablet over her head also looking up at Billy's stars.


This is the story of Charlotte and the disappearing stars. Charlotte liked the starts better than probably anything. Maybe even better than the cool, sophisticated Billy Pierce. But then one day Charlotte's stars seemed to disappear into thin air. What forces of the universe? What wonders of inventiveness? What feats of incredible power could bring them back to her. Suddenly, a gift appeared. The thirty million billion stars she so missed. 
Happy holidays, Charlotte. 
And this time, Billy came in a very close second. My name is Billy Pierce, and I gave Charlotte back the stars. 
You remind me of home. 
The paint cracks when the water leaks from the rusty pipes that are just beneath my feet. 
You remind me of home. 
The heater's warm but fills the room with a potpourri of dust and gas fumes. 
You remind me of home. 
A broken bed with dirty sheets that creaks when I am shifting in my sleep. 
You remind me of home.
