FUTURE TEENS COMMERCIAL PITCH DRAFT ONE
BIG SHOT AD AGENCY
INT. COFFEE SHOP- DAY
We open on an older man and woman in their seventies across the
table from one another. The man looks pre-occupied and
ALICE: What’s wrong, Joe? Something on your mind?
JOE: Every since Cecil passed on, I’ve been thinking a lot about
life insurance. I want to be sure the kids aren’t burdened
when it’s my time. Do you and GLADYS have any?
ALICE: We do. But what’s really been helping us feel secure lately
is FUTURE TEENS.
JOE: FUTURE TEENS? I’ve never heard of that.
Alice slides a copy of HARD FEELINGS across the table.
ALICE: They’re a rock band from Boston, MA and they’ve changed
everything for GLADYS and I. People call them BUMMER POP
and it’s a label they wear proudly.
JOE: I’ve never even heard of BUMMER POP. What does that sound
ALICE: It sounds like it’s 1 am and you’re on the front stoop of a
party full of people you barely know talking with your best
friend after you’ve both had a really hard couple of weeks.
JOE: That sounds comforting.
ALICE: It is! And more people are starting to hear about FUTURE
TEENS. Just recently, they’ve started working with TRIPLE
CROWN RECORDS and have played alongside notable acts like
OSO OSO, VUNDABAR, AARON WEST, FREE THROW AND BAD BAD HATS.
JOE: Wow. Sounds like I should get on board before it’s too
Title Card appears on screen with a 1-800 number and rainbow
text reading FUTURE TEENS. Calming music plays and we hear a
soothing, strong voice read our tag line and ending.
NARRATOR: FUTURE TEENS: A COMFORTING FRIEND IN A TERRIFYING WORLD.
Call right away to reserve your FUTURE TEENS now. Don’t
delay! Supplies are limited!
The NARRATOR reads the disclaimer at a much more rapid pace:
NARRATOR: DISCLAIMER: While FUTURE TEENS may make you feel less
alone, in most cases they will not physically be present
during your listening. FUTURE TEENS formed in 2014 with
little aspiration outside of playing a Fourth of July BBQ.
In the subsequent years the band wrote and released more
songs, steadily growing more serious about their goals. In
2017, they released HARD FEELINGS with TAKE THIS TO HEART
RECORDS. Use of FUTURE TEENS may lead to random and
frequent crying punctuated with strangely joyful laughter.
FUTURE TEENS is not liable for any emotional distress
caused by listening.
