[Starts with Chris and Sandra at a coffee shop. Chris Redd pays the bill.]

Chris Redd: Thank you.

Sandra Oh: Hey, I’ll send you what I owe you right now. [Sandra uses her phone to send the money to Chris]

Narrator: With services like Venmo and Apple pay, there are so many ways to send money in an instant.

[Cut to Chris. Phone beeps and he checks.]

Chris Redd: Just got it right now, thanks.

[Cut to Chris and Sandra]

Narrator: And While convenience is great, don’t forget, there’s also—

[Cut to a blank cheque] ‘Cheques’.

[Cut to Kate McKinnon writing a cheque] Because there’s nothing like furiously scribbling on a piece of paper, tearing it, flicking your wrist and saying,

Kate McKinnon: I trust this will suffice.

Narrator: Use Cheques for all your payment needs. Including, [Cut to Aidy Bryant writing a cheque] making him leave your daughter.

Aidy Bryant: Take this. Take this and never come back! Don’t pick up her calls. [Aidy Bryant handing over the cheque to a young man] She will be heartbroken but it needs to be done.

[Cut to Sandra Oh writing a cheque]

Narrator: And hushing Mildred.

Sandra Oh: [Sandra Oh handing over the cheque to a young woman] Forget whatever you think you saw last night by the Gazebo.

Kate McKinnon: Cheques!

Narrator: Use cheques for things like [Cut to Aidy walking to a young man] Peter’s birthday.

[Aidy Bryant handing over the cheque to a young man]

Aidy Bryant: For taking my rings off at night.

Narrator: Buying poison.

[Cut to Ego Nwodim mixing the poison off her ring into a teacup]

Ego Nwodim: Just one sip and I become head of the board.

[Cut to Sandra Oh]

Sandra Oh: Best of all, Cheques are easy. Here—[Cut to a blank cheque. Sandra Oh explains how to write a cheque.] what day is it. Here—his name. Here—how much. Here—the same but in letters. And here is the secret.

Aidy Bryant: Cheques!

Narrator: A cheque is drama. A cheque is a promise. Get them in baseball, Daffy Duck or Michigan state. And make sure to add the dash after the amount or god knows how many zeros they’ll add. [Ends with a man falling in a swimming pool] Cheques! Available at Ridgewood savings bank.
