Normally I’m not in the habit of showing my readers bank commercials but I’ll make an exception this one time. On the surface, this might seem like a boring commercial featuring a Mom opening a bank account while talking to her son but there’s more to it than that. The son is played by Gaten Matarazzo, now best known for his role as Dustin on the Netflix series Stranger Things. I’m guessing he probably booked this commercial just after he finished filming the series as there’s no way he’d probably do a small-scale ad like this anymore. BMO probably got him while he was cheap and I bet he can command much higher fees now that he’s famous.

A little bit of trivia, the Mom is played by Katie Griffin, who is recognized in the anime world for her voice over work as Sailor Mars.
