A man wearing lederhosen is there, and he sniffs appreciatively. “Or a heartbeat. Because life isn’t easy. But, now banking is. TCF Free Checking. And new digital banking. TCF. Open yours today.”

The TV announcer says, “Just in—avocados now safe.” The women all drop the avocados. “Prunes now in jeopardy.” In rush elderly customers, fighting over the prunes.

A woman is buying a ceiling fan. “TCF Free Checking is fast, easy and well … free. Which is good.” She turns on the ceiling fan, now in her garage. She and her friends in a band start rockin’ out. As she swings her microphone around her head, it gets caught in the fan, pulling her up and swinging her around the room. A car alarm sounds—she’s landed on her car hood. “Because there are other things in your life you may have to pay for.” As the car alarm goes off, the band starts playing to the beat of the alarm.
