The ad was directed by Fredrik Bond of MJZ with DP Greig Fraser, who was recently Oscar-nominated for 'Lion.'

After catching sight of a microphone being set up, Jared strides confidently across the ballpark. Much to his fellow coworkers surprise, Jared seizes the moment, and the mic, and belts out his best rendition of Bon Jovi's 'It's My Life' to an imaginary crowd of thousands. 

"The ads inspire people to take control of their finances by showcasing the distinctive feeling you get from financial confidence," said Corinne Cuthbertson, SunTrust brand, advertising and digital marketing executive.

"Our goal is to build an iconic brand by breaking through the wall of indifference with innovation, a great message of confidence, and a highly entertaining film," said Scott Goodson, Chairman of StrawberryFrog.

The spot, which aired in the US during this year’s finale of The Voice, is a celebration of what you can do when you have financial confidence in your life and invites viewers to find their financial confidence at
