A college basketball coach gives his team a pep talk before a tournament game. He tells the players he believes in them so much that he’s already bought plane tickets for the next round of championship play.

Next, we see the coach and his team on the plane--headed home after losing. 

Good thing that Southwest has a no-change fee so the coach doesn’t have to pay any more for a team flight he hadn’t planned on. 

Part of the “Behind Every Seat Is A Story” campaign, this spot titled “Coach” was directed by Seth Gordon via Community Films for agency GSD&M, Austin.
