Actress/comedian Melissa McCarthy settled into the director’s chair for this Walmart “Magic Box” spot which debuted during the Oscars telecast (3/4).

The commercial shows the negative effects of childhood bullying on one’s potential with “The Box” providing the opportunity to break away from past hurdles and reach for the stars in pursuit of our dreams.

Pony Show Entertainment produced the spot for Saatchi & Saatchi NY, with Heidi Black of Whitehouse Post editing, and Ben Freer of Eleven handling the audio post mix.
