Brief Explanation

The commercial begins on an old treehouse in a backyard. A deep American Voice Over talks about how the treehouse was built a long time ago by a father and son. The camera drifts around the details of the treehouse while the voice talks about how special it is to both father and son. Suddenly we hear a yell and we see a middle-aged man kick off a wooden step from the treehouse ladder. He throws it into the distance and a dog chases after it. Cut to an endframe where a picture frame of the grown up kid is knocked over and replaced by a picture of the dog. The young man has been replaced.
