Look, gambling addiction is a serious thing and, really, this anti-gambling spot from the National Council on Problem Gambling only proves the point. In it, several young boys sit around yakking about the World Cup and who they want to win. Each kid has a favorite—one likes Brazil, another likes Argentina and Messi—but then there's poor Andy. Andy's dad, a degenerate gambler, actually told him he bet all of his life savings on Germany. Andy is sad and ashamed; a forlorn piano plays.

But Andy's dad had a feeling, you know? He had a feeling about Germany and after a crushing defeat of Brazil, that feeling is one game away from paying off, big time. Imagine the rush! Cheer up, Andy. This could be your big break.
