Lotto I

Father…..Will Ferrell
Mother…..Molly Shannon

[Fade up to a dissolving series of slow-moving shots of a baby in a home, along with its mother and father loving it and taking care of it. The last shot in the series is the father, worried. The song “Always” by Patsy Cline plays throughout the commercial.]

Song:
“I’ll be loving you, always
With a love that’s true, always…”

Voiceover: You love them so much. And because you love them, you owe it to them to think about the future. Life doesn’t always work out the way we’ve planned. What would happen to them if something happened to you? [dissolve from the worried father to Lotto logo] Lotto. [fade up “for the ones you love” underneath the logo] For the ones you love.
