Project Main Details

Thomas Jefferson for Bank spot 
This radio spot takes place in the Continental Congress. The idea is: it's July 3, 1776. Thomas Jefferson makes a motion that they "declare ATM fees frustrating and completely bothersome." They all agree. And when it's suggested that they "declare independence," they decide to save it for the following day.

Thomas Jefferson should be dramatic, breathy, and a little frustrated. Think "narrator from Winnie the Pooh" with a little agitation.

As you can tell from the "script" below, there are additional characters that need to be cast. I've got $175 for each, so read what you want, but you might get cast for the congressional leader, or Ben Franklin (in a different spot).

SFX: Courtroom chatter, Gavel bangs on desk

CONGRESS LEADER: “Hear ye, Hear ye, Continental Congress is now called to order...

For our first order of business, Mr. Jefferson has the floor.”

JEFFERSON: “Yes, I’d like to take issue with ATM fees.”

LEADER: “What’s your issue?”

JEFFERSON: “I strongly dislike them! And so does Paul Revere.”

REVERE (yelling, with horse-hoof SFX): “I HATE ‘EM...I HATE ‘EM”

JEFFERSON: “...and I move that on this day, July THIRD, 1776, we declare ATM fees frustrating and completely bothersome.”

(crowd agrees)

LEADER: “All in favor?”


LEADER: “And for our next order of business...Declare independence from Britain...”

(momentary silence)

VOICE: “Let’s do it tomorrow!”

(crowd agrees)

LEADER: “Okay, we’ll do it tomorrow!” (SFX: gavel)
