The spot focuses on that moment of dreaming that happens instantaneously when you purchase a ticket. As the heroine purchases a Lottery ticket, a dream sequence is instigated that includes a fanciful swim in the fridge, a dance on the ceiling and a Vespa ride. The spot closes with a call to action: “What’s Your Dream?”
