It has been said that in the game of love, nice guys finish last. Their amiability tends to be taken for granted. Some girls think that nice guys are boring and smooth talking guys are more appealing.

However, it has also been said that you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. Often, it’s only when the nice guy has left that the girl realizes how much she misses him.


Your challenge is to show us in a 30s-60s video/ animation what it is like for a girl to take a nice guy for granted and only to want him back after he has gone.

Be creative, be funny, be entertaining.
