There is the sound of children’s voices in the background.
Male Voice: We all have something we’re putting money aside for...
We zoom out to see an irregular shape is actually the pattern on the neck of a child’s height measuring giraffe.
Male Voice: And whether it’s for a child’s bedroom…
The giraffe comes to life with the sound of children’s voices turning into monkeys in a forest.
Male Voice: or for a safari holiday…
The Giraffe nibbles at some leaves
Male Voice: …the money you’re saving is automatically protected up to £85,000…
The screen moves up to the trees and the figure £85,000 appears in some purple flowers.
Male Voice: …by The Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
We then zoom in on a large flower which incorporates the text ‘Financial Services Compensation Scheme’.
Male Voice: If you have a joint account, your money’s protected up to £170,000, in any UK authorised bank, building society or credit union.
We zoom in on a leaf at the top of the trees. £170,000 appears on the leaf.
The camera moves up to the sky. There is the sound of a party horn in the background and a birthday balloon with 40 written on it drifts into the sky.
Male Voice: It doesn’t matter if it’s for a big birthday…
It then changes to a 40 speed limit road sign accompanied by the sound of a car horn.
Male Voice…or driving lessons, your money is safe.
A cloud drifts by in the shape of the word free.
Male Voice: The FSCS is a free service that protects your money, should anything happen to your bank, building society or credit union.
The frame pauses on three paper cut-outs showing different shapes of buildings.
The screen then moves up to a sun shining in the sky.
Male Voice: And you’ll get your money back within seven days.
This then changes to a moon; night and day change in one rotation.
Male Voice: It’s completely automatic and backed by government.
So whether your money’s for a new home
The sun transforms into a door knocker, which raps on the door with the sound of a door closing.
Male Voice: …or a new television…
The knocker then turns into a glowing power button. The power button depresses and changes colour as if turning to standby mode with the sound of a ‘click’ and then disappears.
Male Voice: …you can be confident your savings are protected.
The FSCS badge appears.
Male Voice: Find out more about savings protection at www.fscs.org.uk/protected
