White Family (SoftBank) CM #071. “Otou-san is Hospitalized” Japanese CM [with English subtitles]

#71.
「お父さん入院する」篇
“Otou-san is Hospitalized”

Script:

「どうかな?」
How is he?
「安定してます。あの、ご家族の方が」
His vital signs are stable. His family is also here.
「先生、いかがでしょう」
Doctor, how is he?
「どうも」
Thank you for coming.
「お父さん」
Dad.
「あなた」
Dear.
「いや、いまはまだ…」
Right now he’s still-
「あたしがこう言ったのを覚えてる?のりかえ割…」
Do you remember? What I said about SoftBank’s transfer rate?
「頭を強く打ってるんで…」
He’s still recuperating from his head injuries…
「のりかえ割で、家族と一緒にソフトバンクにのりかえると、基本料が10ヵ月無料になる」
With the SoftBank transfer rate, households that switch their family plan over to SoftBank get ten whole months of free basic service.
「そうよ!」
That’s exactly right!
「あれ…?」
What’s this!
「あなた!」
Dear!
「お父さん!」
Father!
「いや~、人間とは思えない回復力だな。ねぇ」
This recovery is completely unexpected of the average person! Wouldn’t you agree?
「ええ」
Yes…
「人間とは思えないですよ」
It’s almost as if he isn’t human!
「あ、はい…」
Ah… Yes…
「父は立派な人間です」
Dad’s an outstanding human being!
「え」
Huh?
「ねえ、お父さん」
Isn’t that right, Dad?
「腹減った」
I’m starving.
