Lottery advertising often gravitates to the luxury items money can buy--the so-called good life replete with upscale cars, homes, diamonds and other extravagances. But McCann NY took a different turn for the New York Lottery’s Cash4Life game--showing that good fortune in the lotto can free people to spend time doing what makes them truly happy.

In this launch film directed by Derek Cianfrance of RadicalMedia, we meet a man who spends the time he won volunteering with rescue dogs.

Other films, as well as print, digital and social efforts, will show more ways New Yorkers would spend their days--not their dollars--if they won Cash4Life’s top prize of $1,000 a day for life, and invite us all to imagine how we’d spend ours.
