Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

See, the Jack Russell terrier tries, and fails. He tries again. He fails. He tries again, and again. Finally, with knowledge and character gained through his ordeal, he exerts all his strength and tries a final time -- and succeeds! Denouement. Now that you feel all warm and cuddly about the Jack Russell, wouldn't you like to buy this unrelated investment product?

Wait, I have another interpretation. The writer sends in his story, but the editor rejects it. He tries a different story. Again the editor rejects it...

God help us, we *are* our characters.

What's marvelous about this video is how the story -- it happens to be No. 1 of Georges Polti's 36 Dramatic Situations -- can be compressed to its essentials. In less than a minute of time. Without words. With action scenes alternating with moments of high suspense. Nicely done.
