TD Ameritrade: Cat’s in the Cradle

This is a commercial ad of TD Ameritrade.. This commercial was released in May 2017 in United States. Under the title of “TD Ameritrade: Cat’s in the Cradle”.

From their first word, to their first game, to graduation day, you invest in every moment. To celebrate the small moments that lead to the biggest rewards, we reimagined the iconic song “Cat’s in the Cradle” as performed by Joseph Angel.

It was done by Havas, New York advertising agency. And the commercial by Production Company is Shot in LA and is directed by Vincent Haycock.

Lyrics:
My child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
So I moved my meeting, son walked that day
And he was talkin’ ‘fore I knew it, and as he grew
He’d say “I’m gonna be like you, Dad
You know I’m gonna be like you”

My son turned ten just the other day
He said, “Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on let’s play
Can you teach me to throw”, I said “Right away. I got stuff to do that can wait today.”
And he ran outside and smiled ear to ear
And said “I’m gonna be like you, Dad
You know I’m gonna be like you”

Well, he came from college just the other day
He said “I can’t thank you enough for paying my way. What I’d really like dad, is to borrow the car keys, take you dinner and discuss my dreams”

Soon I’ll retire, my son’s well on his way
He came by with a question just the other day
“I need your advice dad with what to do when I become a father just like you. Become a father just like you.”

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home, Dad
I’ll be home in ten, and we’ll get together then
You know I’ll have a good time then

Invest in every moment.
