Video: In a video, a boy rides his bike down a suburban street, passing houses and yards adorned with Christmas decorations.
Audio: Flowing music.
Boy: See you tomorrow!
Video: A woman waves as he passes.
Boy: Hi, Mrs Paskin.
Mrs Paskin: Hey, Alfie.
Video: Alfie stares at a house that doesn't have any decorations. In the front yard, an elderly man puts rubbish in his bin. Alfie gets off his bike in the Christmassy driveway across the road and waves.
Alfie: Hello, Mr Grieves.
Video: Mr Grieves scowls and turns away. Alfie's face falls. Night. Among houses flashing with colourful Christmas lights, Mr Greives' house is dark. From Alfie's house, Mr Grieves is visible at his front door, talking to a couple who hold a large box of Christmas decorations.
Woman: We could decorate for you.
Mr Grieves: No. My wife used to do that. Please leave me alone.
Video: Mr Grieves goes back inside. The couple head across the road. Alfie watches pensively from his bedroom. Day. Alfie and his mother get in a car. Across the road, groceries fall from the box in Mr Grieves' hands. Alfie waves solemnly. Mr Grieves frowns. Alfie looks thoughtful. Alfie and his mother go into a Post Office. Browsing the colourful merchandise, Alfie smiles and picks up something. He takes it to the counter and puts down a handful of change.
Video: Night. Against a backdrop of Christmas lights, Mr Grieves takes a Christmas parcel and card from his letterbox. He unwraps a small sliver disco ball. The card reads, "Merry Christmas from Alfie." Bright light suddenly shines on the disco ball. Mr Grieves stands bathed in light and surrounded by a cloud of luminous white dots. He turns. Across the road, Alfie shines a torch from his bedroom onto Mr Grieves and the disco ball. Alfie turns off the torch and waves. Smiling, Mr Grieves waves with the hand not holding the disco ball. Alfie smiles. The disco ball's lights spin in Mr Grieves' front yard. The red Australia Post logo appears above his dark house. In the starry sky above, red script reading "Spread the Merry" is surrounded by a cloud of white Christmas lights.
Audio: Insects chirp. Flowing music.
Spread the merry with Australia Post.
