Project Main Details

Bell VO  
Take time with it. Read like a bit of folklore. Follow the rhythm of the rhyme.

Voice should not be affected, keep it natural. Not dramatic; genuine.

It's broken up the way it should be read. Long sentences should be read in one breath.

We are looking for the story to have some emotion. The people at ****** take the ringing of the bell very seriously, so the idea that the bell is missing makes them a bit rudderless. In the end, it's a feel-good story.

Script Details

Custom demo required 

There’s a story once told of a really great place,
Where delicious is served at a most steady pace.
Perhaps you’ve heard of it, ****** the name.
A “new-fashioned sandwich shop” is what they proclaim.

Well, this isn’t the story of an ****** at all.
No, it’s not. It’s the tale of a bell on a wall right inside to the left ‘bout a foot from the door just above a small sign with nine words and no more:
“If our service was great (and before you all go)
Please ring the bell” (and let everyone know).

It was June the 15th, just a typical day.
The manager opened the doors to make way,
For his staff to prepare, to be ready and waiting,
For their favorite customers to give an A-rating.

The workers were set. Their faces beamed bright.
But the manager noticed all was not right.
“Where’s the bell?” He asked with a glance at the wall.
“Where’s our bell?” he asked panicked. “There’s no bell there at all!”
He was right, the bell that had been hanging for years,
Had just vanished, poof, gone, there no more, disappeared.
This is just awful. And so undeserved.
How will my servers know how well they have served?
What shall we do? Our system has crashed.
How will my cashiers know how well they have cashed?
How will we know, once we’ve served up delicious,
If our diner’s enjoyed their experience? How malicious!
The sound is, for us, a most valuable thing
That bell ding means more than a register ring.

Then something happened that no on expected,
Without being asked, chosen, picked or selected,
The patrons inside, one-by-one on their own,
Let everyone know how they felt, with a tone.

“Ding”, said a man who was there with a date.
“Ding, ding”, called the mom with her kids, six and eight.
“Ding, ding, ding, ding!,” yelled the booth filled with teens.
And twelve dings rang out from the girl’s lacrosse team.

And that’s how thing went for the rest of the day.
When service was great, without any delay,
A customer would simply stand up and say;
“Ding”, right out loud in a similar way,
To the bell that was hanging there just yesterday,
But was gone, for the moment…but that was okay.

Some say every time a bell rings here on Earth,
An angel gets wings, but for all that it’s worth,
We say every time a bell rings in our store,
There may not be wings, but our people do soar.
They smile and they beam with a pride so contagious,
The place is transformed—it’s something outrageous.
But it isn't the bell that makes our place sing,
But the things that we do that make the bell ring.

So the next time you enjoy service so good,
That it makes you want to ring bells, wish you would.
And by chance if the bell in the store isn’t there,
Feel free to say, “ding”, they’ll say “thank you”, I swear.
