How a Guitar Landed a Bass: a Love Story
We see a guy walking, carrying a guitar case. A VO narrates the sequence of events.
VO: Chet Mason of Hoboken, New Jersey, wanted to master jazz guitar so he could impress girls.
As Chet practices his guitar, he is surrounded by girls. We hear guitar music; first halting and then improving.
VO: And sure enough, girls were impressed.
One by one all the girls except for one drop away.
VO: But there was one particular girl named Jenny who Chet liked especially.
We see Jenny and Chet fishing in a river.
VO: As it turned out, Jenny was really into fly-fishing, so she took Chet out to the river and taught him a few things.
We see Jenny teaching Chet how to tie flies and cast.
VO: Which was when Chet discovered that tying a clinch knot was a little like alternate picking in drop-D tuning.
Next we see Chet expertly tying flies and casting.
VO: So, when Jenny encouraged him to enter a fly-fishing competition, Chet figured, why not?
We see his catch mounted on the wall: a giant bass.
VO: Not only did he catch the biggest fish, with the prize money, he got himself a framed portrait of his favorite guitarist, Pinky Taylor.
We see a picture of an old guy with a guitar on his wall next to his bass. We see Chet’s guitar nearby.
VO: Chet had hoped playing the guitar would land him a girl. But in the end, it landed him a girl and a pro-fishing career.
Super: Sometimes the best payback is the one you don’t expect.
Super: Reimagine ROI.
