A car with its side mirror getting lower was shown then a female voice asking "Where are you going my dear?" then a male person said "I'm on my way to SM City." with the car's engine turning on. Arriving in the middle, a guy shouts "Wow!" with scenes of Food (Family Eating at the Foodcourt), Shopping (Shoppers at the Department store), Fun (inside of an arcade with a dancing mascot and kids) and Movies (people watching a movie at the cinema). In Maskman-like background music, a lady got shocked/startled then the car appeared on the cinema screen. A girl holding a popcorn looked around and scenery of SM City North EDSA was shown along with the jingle "There's Nothing Like... SM City!" with a guy ending the ad with "It's waiting for you"<ref> [https://www.facebook.com/groups/pahg.ph/posts/5157762050918093/ Facebook post about the commercial and another lost commercial.] Retrieved 15 Dec '21</ref><ref> [https://www.pinoyexchange.com/discussion/340374/tv-memories/p79?fbclid=IwAR33JFl2bOkb-ZCdZEWrBGSU8MRoZB3A2gnOWy_5nVa8_u6uFbYncA1J59k PinoyExchange forum where someone mentioned the said ad.] Retrieved 15 Dec '21</ref>
