Commercial Fantasy

Last night I was watching bad-as-in-good television with the 43rd Ave Crew, and saw a commercial for Diet Dr. Pepper involving an animated candy aisle exploding with happiness as said beverage arrived…I immediately exclaimed something about how this commercial would have been my absolute favorite when I was a kid; really anything involving ordinary objects becoming animated and doing stuff was a sure mind-blower. Anyway this minor revelation led immediately to a concept for a commercial for some as yet undetermined thing. Storyboard:

Opeing shot: Guy is unlocking door to music store/cut to him flipping on lights/cut to him leaning on counter–shot takes in room full of instruments.
Then: a solitary burn-out dude, soloing, loudly, badly. Employee still in leaning state at counter. Montage follows: Assorted combinations of teenagers and weirdos jamming on assorted instruments, awful cacophony. Maybe a closeup of store employee, grimacing. Day passes with assorted awful jam sessions [anyone who’s spent a minute in a musical instrument store is familiar with this scene, and anyone who has worked in one has probably contemplated various crimes after a day of this].
A brief sequence of employee closing the store.
Then: in darkened store, picks and drumsticks start fluttering out of bins, cables flop to guitars and plug themselves in, amps come to life. Epic animated instrument jam begins, it is Awesome. [Still not sure what song they should play. Maybe “Peaches in Regalia”?]

Not sure where to go from here. I had an mindgasm imagining the last part. Also not sure what it could be a commercial for. Banking? IT?
