Thrifty Birthday Girl

Thrifty Car and Truck Rental in Australia promotes the cheap option with this cheeky birthday present – a car for a limited time for an ecstatic birthday girl. A teenage girl is led outside by her parents and shown a hatchback wrapped with a red ribbon. She’s over the moon. “Oh my God!”, she yells over and over again as she jumps around in excitement.
