Project Main Details

SOS Humorous Instructional Video 
This is another spot in a series that features the good-natured, but slightly misguided "Jimmy" and the unseen announcer who is trying to teach him in the old-school style of being authoritative and slightly condescending but ultimately warming up and proud of his student.

“Pick it Up”

SPX: 50’s instructional music

Surf Lesson title card appears.

“Pick it Up”

Open on close up of Jimmy. Grooming his hair, looking a bit frisky and devilish.

Announcer Voice Over (AVO) (Authoritative, a touch disapproving): “Say Jimmy, you look like you’re ready for something a bit mischievous, dare I say “Trashy”?

CUT to Jimmy who smirks with a confident attitude and nods yes.

AVO: Well before you embarrass yourself you better try your pick-up lines.

CUT to Jimmy who smiles in agreement. Looks at the camera and gives a corny expression as we hear his voice as a VO say “haven’t I seen you somewhere before”

CUT: Camera pulls back as Jimmy bends down to pick up a plastic bottle laying in the sand and put it in a trash sack.

CUT: Back to close up of Jimmy as he gives a romantic beach boy look while his VO says “we’ve got to stop meeting like this”

CUT: Camera reveals he’s picking up some plastic bags. Camera pulls back to show beach full of people helping to clean up.

AVO: Ahh, the Save our Shores Beach clean up.

CUT: Looking across Jimmy’s shoulder to a few young women a bit down the beach. One of the women looks disgusted and saves “I hate seeing butts like that on the beach!”

CUT: Jimmy looks nervous and bruised until he sees them scooping up cigarette butts from the sand.

CUT: Jimmy, the women and others from the beach are standing together with full garbage bags. Jimmy says “Join Save Our Shores, Pizza My Heart and thousands of volunteers this Saturday to preserve and protect our beaches”.

AVO: (With Pride) Attaboy, Jimmy.
