The clip world's first lie from The Invention of Lying (2009)
What can I do for you today, sir?
Just been evicted from my apartment.
So I have to withdraw whatever I've got in my account to move my things out.
Think I have to close my account.
Probably gonna be homeless. Mark Bellison.
Unfortunately, sir, the system is down right now,
so I'm not gonna be able to perform an account closure until it's back up.
But I can help you with a withdrawal. How much would you like to withdraw today?
-All of it. Whatever's left. -The system is down, sir.
Can you tell me how much is in your account?
-$800. -Pardon me?
I have $800 in my account.
Oh! The system just came back up.
-System seems to be back up, guys. -MAN: Thanks, Jill.
Just a second while I access your account. You said you were withdrawing 800, correct?
Wait a second.
It says here that you only have $300 in your account,
but you said you wanted to withdraw 800?
I apologise, sir.
It seems our system has made a mistake. Let's get you your $800.
Did you want large bills or small?
-Bills, large. -All right, here you go.
That's 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, $800.
Is there anything else I can do for you today, sir?
Sorry for the inconvenience.
