About This TV Commercial

The story of "Apple Stand" seemingly takes place over the course of a couple minutes but, like many of FBL's spots, the filming took an entire day. The setting for "Apple Stand" was a beautiful location. During production, however, it rained, snowed, was sunny, and was extremely windy - all in one day! Shots had to be filmed in the rare moments when the weather was cooperative. It was a lot of work for the editors, who succeeded in the important task of putting parts and pieces together in order to give "Apple Stand" a cohesive look and feel.

Video Transcript

VOICEOVER: We didn’t have much to give then. Thin crop left us with hardly enough apples to fill the stand. So when they showed up firing them mean looks around the place and staring us down on prices, well I was angry. Didn’t seem to bother my father though, he let them set a fair price. Too low, I thought. Then he did more, he had me load another bushel of apples into their trunk. I learned later on that this family was in need.
MUSIC: The greatest gift we give it’s in our heart, what we believe, the way we live.
ANNCR/SUPER: Caring for others… Pass it on. A message from The Foundation for a Better Life.

Caring. Pass It On!

Very nice reminder that doing the right thing, especially for those that can't quite make it by on their own (despite their best efforts) is always worth doing.

Care for others in anyway possible. Even the smallest gesture can mean a lot and hopefully it gets past on...
