Does this change as the years go on?
Notice the 2014 man as the villain.. notice animals always being the heroes.. why do you feel that is?
How much of the man do we see in the second and third commercial? Why do you think his presence fades as the commercials progress?
Do you see the progression of the story and the mistakes being corrected as it goes on?
