Plot / Description

"Rooney Mara in The Wanted" 
This black and white ad for Oxfam America, a non-profit organization to help end poverty, starts out like a perfume holiday commercial. A woman (Rooney Mara) is talking about what seems to be a man, but they we see that it's a goat - "The Kid". The advertisement suggests that you donate so someone who is hungry can get a goat to provide milk (or meat) for a hungry family instead of spending money on commercial, meaningless gifts.

Voiceover

People always wonder what I want for the holidays. A girl like me can be difficult to shop for. This year, I know who's on my most wanted list. He's got a good heart even though he runs with a rough crowd. Oh, there he is now. 
Baaaa. 
Oh, baby, you always know just what to say.
