The hero, a diver, had to face many obstacles to reach it, and the commercial ended with a sunken ship almost crushing the hero, who determinedly uncovered the treasure and escaped. The connection between this commercial and the episode is striking; the audience, or the kids who watch Cartoon Network, are the same for both, and the episode’s lesson makes commercial more effective.
