A story about the power of togetherness proves to be a touching tale in a new ad created by Havas Munich for PayPal. The 90-second spot, entitled “If You Can Dream It,” tells the story about a girl who dreams of becoming a boxer—but has nowhere to practice. An old janitor sees the girl, and her friends, attempting to collect money to renovate a nearby deserted hall.
The girl watches her dreams slowly become a reality when the janitor creates a PayPal.Me link. He shares that link with others who donate money to her cause. PayPal.Me is a new feature that allows users to create a link, share it, and start receiving money.
The video launched online, and after viewers watched it, they were sent to a landing page that highlighted some of the best examples of PayPal.Me put to use. Readers were also invited to share their dreams on PayPal’s Facebook page.
Watch the spot.
