Project Main Details

Ticking Time Bomb 
VOICE: Morgan Freeman

STYLE: Smooth, solid, confident, sympathetic to situation and yet, confident in the solution he's presenting. He's someone you can trust.

THE MESSAGE: Our financial management company understands the fear associated with mounting debt. Mounting financial debt and making the bills each month is like ticking time bomb ready to explode. This company can help by - blah - blah - blah causing that ticking time bomb to be a lazy tick-tock as you pass the hours enjoying your money, rather than worrying about it.

Sound Number 1: A frenetic, rapid ticking like the time bomb in cartoons. It's fast tick tick tick tick tick solicits a rapid heart beat, a sense of panic or at the very least, anxiety. It begins at the start of the spot softly in the background and ever increases as our voice describes the financial impending doom.

Sound 2: Explosion! "is your mounting debt scaring the [EXPLOSION] out of you?"

Sound 3: Slowly, faintly in background the listener (who is hopefully swimming in our Morgan Freeman smooth voice by this point) begins to hear a slow, grandfather like tick-tock.This tick grows gently suggesting that the frantic time bomb tick they heard earlier is now just a lazy tick-tock tick-tock .... slow and easy like the passage of sweet time.

We need 3 versions of the script I'm attaching in the next box. It's the same exact thing with three different phone numbers at the end for our tracking purposes. There is no other change but the phone numbers.

Timing wise, we need one of these versions first with the other two following close on the heels. This same voice will be solicited to do a TV version of this ad in the following week.

We would like three takes from which to choose our final piece. I DO NOT need custom demos to choose the talent but timing wise....MY HAIR IS ON FIRE.

Script Details

Full script:

[in the background, the fast paced upsetting time bomb tick-tick-tick-tick sound begins ... faint at first but grows through this first paragraph]

At *****************, we’ve helped thousands like you, paralyzed by fear over mounting debt and the endless struggle to meet the bills. Our clients tell us their financial worries were like a constant ticking time bomb…

[frenetic TICK TICK TICK has grown loud by this point in the voice work and continues until the explosion that follows]

If you have debt of twenty five hundred dollars or more scaring the [EXPLOSION] out of you, ***************** can help. We’ll protect your credit as we consolidate your bills, lower or eliminate interest and stop collection calls.
[tick-tock grandfather clock begins in here faintly in the back ground and swells as the voice continues but with NO BREAK in the reading of this paragraph]
We’ll set up your account to pay creditors directly, avoiding late fees and missed bills. We’ll show you how to take control of your finances, enjoy your earnings, save money and build wealth.

Call ************. That ticking you’ve been hearing … [full pleasant sound of TICK TOCK TICK TOCK] … can be the time you’ll spend ENJOYING your money, instead of worrying about it.

We’re *****************. ************. That’s ************.
