Project Main Details

How Jerry Minds His Business 
The project is a email blast for an antivirus software. It follows the office black sheep, Jerry as he screws up and puts his office computer network at risk after clicking on a virus. The voiceover talent would be reading as an omniscient narrator that chastises Jerry and tries to teach him about to go about his work in the safest way possible. Although it's written in the retro, 50s style of a PSA we want the narrator to be friendly and conversational with just a little snark.

Script Details

We open on JERRY at the computer clicking around his email. A cinematic and God-like VO chimes in.

SFX: Music plays.

VO: This is Jerry. Jerry is checking his email when he receives a video of a cat doing something very human-like and adorable.

As the VO continues, JERRY mouths the words in quotes in sync with the audio.

VO: “Hey, why not?” Jerry thinks. “I’m on lunch.”

JERRY clicks the link in the email and a virus takes over his computer screen. JERRY’s face fills with dread. Almost immediately, his boss, KAY, walks by. JERRY panics and pushes a potted plant in front of his computer screen and scrambles to look casual.

KAY: Hi, Jerry!

VO: Uh, oh. This is Jerry’s boss, Kay. Awkward.

JERRY shoots a quick, glaring look towards the camera, then turns his attention back to his boss.

JERRY: Hi, Kay!

KAY: Can you pull up yesterday’s reports and send them to Heather?

JERRY: (Nervously; with false confidence) Sure!

As soon as KAY walks away, JERRY panics and begins frantically tapping at his keyboard.

VO: Oh snap, Jerry. Not only have you made client data vulnerable, but you’ve also put your productivity at risk.

JERRY: But it was a cat on a unicycle!!

VO: No, Jerry. It was a trick—a Trojan Horse.

JERRY: Holy . . .

JERRY’s coworker, RONALD, walks up to JERRY’s desk with a cup of sorbet.

RONALD: Sherbet?

JERRY: (Startled) No, thank you.

RONALD exits.

VO: A more common trick is called phishing, something Jerry would most definitely also fall for.

JERRY: (Nodding) That’s probably true, I can’t argue with that.

VO: Phishing is a scam by which an e-mail user is duped into revealing personal or confidential information the scammer can use illicitly.

SUPER: PHISHING | noun | phish•ing: a scam by which an e-mail user is duped into revealing personal or confidential information the scammer can use illicitly

Source: Merrium-Webster.

VO: We can’t be too hard on Jerry, though.

JERRY: You can’t?

VO: No, Jerry. 80,000 people around the world fall for phishing scams every day
