This is a commercial ad of Ontario Power Generation. This commercial was released in June 2018 in Canada. Under the title of “Ontario Power Generation: Stay Clear, Stay Safe”.
Ontario Power Generation has launched a new water safety campaign with a public service announcement featuring the harrowing tale of Dammy the Beaver.
An avid angler, Dammy learns firsthand about the dangers of fishing near hydro dams and generating stations. His message to everyone tempted by the waters in and around such structures is to stay clear, stay safe because your life may be on the line.
It was done by The Hive, Toronto advertising agency. And, the commercial by Production Company is Aardman Animations and is directed by Magdalena Osinska.
♬Gather around the fire and Let’s sin a song
About a young little beaver and his dream
To catch a fish that was fat and long
That was herder than it seemed
One day luck will turn
Don’t know when it will be
A prize of a fish, every anglers wish
I know it’s waiting for me
Going was rough, the fish wouldn’t bite
Wonder if he’d win the fight
Fishing along with a rod and a song
Hope someday he’d get it right
A beautiful day yonder
The answer to his fishing dreams
He was reeling in with all his might♬
When a log shadow dark as night
♬Don’t ignore that warming sign
Your life could be on the line♬
Did he die?
He escaped by the skin of his teeth
♬Lots of fish there will always be
But just one you, and just one me♬
