About This TV Commercial

Often locations need to be adapted for filming. In "Packages," FBL was able to find and use a building that had the desired look. But there was one glitch: the building's front door actually opens in. That wouldn't work for filming, so the crew had to take the door off its hinges and re-hang it so it opened outward. As with all alterations made, the door was put back to normal after the filming was over.

The spot's humorous ending, with our hero dropping his packages, reminds us that it is important to do the right thing, whether or not things will turn out exactly as we thought. The dropping of the packages, though, was not in the script. It was a complete accident - which the director liked and kept in the final edit.

MUSIC: Everybody needs a helping hand, take a look at your fellow man and tell me what can I do today. ‘Cause everybody needs a helping out…
MAN: Hey, Let me get that for you.
MUSIC: …but that ain’t what it’s all about, tell me what- what can I do today.
LADY: Thank you young man.
MAN: No Problem.
MUSIC: Everybody needs a helping hand …
ANNCR/SUPER: Courtesy… Pass it on.
MAN: Don’t worry about me, I got it.
ANNCR/SUPER: A message from The Foundation for a Better Life.

Courtesy. Pass It On!

I believe the young man should have said "you're welcome" as his reply to "thank you young man. that's good manners, not "no problem"
Ross, Bowling Green, Ky

He opened the door for all those people and then he dropped all his packages. Why did that happen to that nice guy?
