Project Main Details

Hearing Aid Demo 
We have 3 spots of different lengths. I'll attach the 2:00 and :60 here. The VO portion of the scripts are fairly similar, with more copy for the 2:00. The :30 has not been written yet, but will be a shorter version of the :30 copy. The VO will be used on two different spots for the compensation offered below.
For the final product, we will need to have a similar but distinct script for each length.
For the style of your read, we're looking for a conversational, not classic hard sell Direct Response TV VO you sometimes hear. The read can have some authority to it, just not condescending or pedantic.

Please return the Non-Disclosure Agreement with your demo. This is a new product that has not launched yet and the information attached is proprietary and confidential and is a requirement for this demo. Thanks for your interest. I appreciate your efforts on our behalf.

??EARGO DRTV 1:20 “House Painter” • Bill Karl • 9/30/14 – V3
Open on a heavy-set senior man painting the trim on his house. His wife sticks her head out the window and calls to him —
He scratches his head, baffled. Flash cut to:
Same man, inebriated as he savages his tomato garden with a machete. Tomato juice drips like blood from his face and hands. His wife is in the window, screaming in horror. Flash back to:
Man in same position as before with wife in the window behind him. Super types on: Translation: Remember to water the tomatoes when you’re done.
Cut to a senior man in a bathing suit, grilling steaks at a family get together. His grandchildren splash in the pool behind him. He spears a steak with a fork to flip it. His son-in-law saunters up behind him with an opinion —
His father-in-law freezes, afraid of what his son- in-law may be offering him. Flash cut to:
Father-in-law in a thong, jumping up and down on the backyard trampoline, happy as can be. His grandkids in the foreground cringe. Flash back to:
Our father-in-law still frozen in position. Son-in- law is behind him holding up a pair of tongs now. Super types on: Translation: You shouldn’t spear those. Try these tongs instead.
Cut back to the overweight man continuing to paint. A mailman passes by, calling out to him —
The man scowls. A super types on: Translation: Very elegant!
Wife: Remember to slaughter the tomatoes when you’re drunk.
Son-in-law: You shouldn’t wear those. Try these thongs instead.
??????????????????VO: Sometimes hearing isn’t easy.
Mailman: Hairy elephant!
??Page 2
??The man sucks in his belly, affronted. Continues painting, self-consciously now.
Cut back to our barbequing father-in-law. A neighbor waves to him over the fence —
Our chef sniffs what’s on the grill, baffled. Super types on: Translation: Smells like some feast!
Father-in-law scowls at his neighbor. Flips the steaks again. His grandkids run over to him from the pool excitedly — all of them talking at once. He can’t make sense of what they’re saying. 800# and URL come up at bottom of frame and remain for the rest of the commercial.
Cut a CG shot of thumb and index finger holding the tiny Eargo device.
Cut a CG shot of the device inserting into an ear canal and the FlexiFibers suspending it. Arrows show how sound can pass through as a result.
CG shot of volume adjusting as the ear is tapped.
CG shot of the Eargo packaging opening. The pebble floats out and opens revealing the two Eargo devices.
CG shot of the Eargo devices being charged. Super: Easily rechargeable. Lasts all day.
Back to the man, watering the tomatoes in his garden now. The mailman appears and sees the man is about to trip on his kid’s skateboard. .
Neighbor: Smells like bum’s feet!
VO: But now hearing loss can be enhanced more easily and effectively than ever before.
VO: Because now there’s Eargo — the virtually invisible hearing device with amazing sound quality.
VO: Its unique design features our patented FlexiFibers that make them incredibly comfortable. And since they won’t clog the ear canal, the sound quality is pure and natural.
VO: Just pop them in and tap each ear until you find the right setting for you.
VO: Your Eargos will arrive ready to use and are rechargeable too.
VO: In fact, a single nighttime charge will last you an entire day.
Mailman: Sauerkraut the slumlord
??Page 3
Flash cut to: Slumlord with sauerkraut being dumped on his head.
Flash back to prior scene: Super comes up “Translation: Watch out for the skateboard” Man step on skateboard, fall out of frame.
Cut to the son in law by the fire pit Flash cut to:
Son-in-law at the fire pit towering over cowering Druid. Flash back to:
Father-in-law in same position as before with son-in-law still behind him, working a toothpick now. Super types on: Translation: Oops. I spilled the lighter fluid.
Cut to end frame with a pair of rotating Eargos, logo, tagline, toll-free number & URL. Titles beside product read: 45-day risk-free trial and Choice of financing options.
Son-in-law: I killed the leper druid.
