[ open on couple holding a pregnancy test in their hands ]

Man: Are you ready to find out?

Woman: I’m nervous.

Man: Don’t be! Everything’s going to be fine.

[ cut to couple in testimonial ]

Woman: Deciding to have a baby wasn’t a simple decision.

Man: And we didn’t want a pregnancy test that just gave us a simple “Yes” or “No.”

Woman: We wanted more information.

Man: And when it comes to giving information, there’s only one name we trust to give it to us constantly.

Woman: That’s why we use the new CNN Take-Home Pregnancy Test. Its relentless breaking alerts let us know that it’s working hard to find out if we’re having a baby.
