Funny commercial - Punctuation Practice


This is a commercial for a Norwegian bank and its message is: some people (a few) are lucky in life; for others (a lot), saving up is the smart thing to do.


In the commercial, a woman wakes up -after a wild night-  and finds out she is a newlywed whose husband turns out to be George Clooney. 

Here´s an activity to practise punctuation

Watch the video to see how much you understand, then play the video again while you read the transcript below. I have not included any punctuation marks, only capital letters at the beginning of the sentences to help you a little bit; your task is to include the missing punctuation signs - paying attention to the speaker´s intonation will help

George Clooney finally getting married He said hed never Well we just found a new video of the star and hes definitely getting hitched but only in Norway
How would you like to wake up from a wild night to find out you just married George Clooney In this commercial for a Norwegian bank this girls that lucky
The message in the ad some people are lucky in life for the rest of us saving up can be smart
And this is one smart ad too bad they don't have commercial like that in the US

This is my suggestion: 

George Clooney finally getting married? He said he´d never! Well, we just found a new video of the star, and he´s definitely getting hitched - but only in Norway.
How would you like to wake up from a wild night to find out you just married George Clooney? 
In this commercial for a Norwegian bank, this girl´s that lucky.
The message in the ad: some people are lucky in life; for the rest of us, saving up can be smart.
And that is one smart ad. Too bad they don´t have commercials like that in the US.

    George Clooney, finally getting married? He said he'd never! Well, we just found a new video of the star and he's definitely getting hitched, but only in Norway.
