"Uncle Sams" Script

Below is the complete script of the "Uncle Sams" video clip:

Open on three Uncle Sams in an elevator. Cut to a bustling office. People are hard at work on computers and telephones. Everyone is dressed like Uncle Sam.

Guy Sam: Whistling "I'm A Yankee Doodle Dandy."

Cut to a male Uncle Sam at a computer. Over his shoulder, we see him load information onto the website. He jumps up from his desk and lights a sparkler.

Voice Over: This is, where we're obsessed with getting you government information.

Sam: Brand new student loan applications on the site, baby. This calls for a celebration. Who's your uncle?

In an office, we see an older male Sam interviewing a young Sam. He brags.

Sam: in the end, it was either take the astronaut gig or come work here. What can I say? Duty called.

Cut to lunch room. One Sam reaches for a coffee cup. It is marked "Sam."

Sam: Dude, that's my cup.

Other Sam: Oh, sorry.

Sam: No, I'm pretty sure that's Sam's cup. No. Sam's. No...

Voice Over: Just log on or e-mail us and get what you need.

Cut to the office kitchen. It is a working lunch. Employees play a version of the "alphabet game" while they eat lunch.

Sam: ...C...Change of address form. That's how it's done.

Sam: ...D...Driver's license renewal.

Sam: ...E...E (struggling)... Uh. E-mailing social security information.

Sam: ...okay...

Sam: ...Nice. We'll allow it.

Sam: ...All right... F...

Cut to Sams standing at a copy machine.

Sam: What are those?

Sam: Government surplus cars for auction.

Sam: You posted those online last time.

Sam: No, you did.

We see them wrestling on the ground.

Sam: I'm posting them online this time!


Voice Over: For all of your government information...
