An animated sequence begins with the Olive Oil Lovers logo popping into the upper left of the screen. An arrow animates from the logo to an illustration of a house that pops into the upper right corner. Then a number pops in below the arrow as it rapidly grows from the hundreds to tens of thousands. As the number climbs, an illustration of a person smiling and waving pops into view in front of the house, then 5 stars pop in across the lower half of the screen, covering up the numbers. 

Narrator: Olive Oil Lovers has successfully shipped tens of thousands of orders to over 20,000 customers, with consistent 5-star ratings…

The animation continues with the stars moving to the top of the screen, pushing the arrow, house and person off-screen. The Olive Oil Lovers logo becomes transparent as it moves and grows to fill the center of the screen, just as several different 5-star reviews pop into the lower half of the screen. 

Narrator: Across thousands of positive customer reviews, ranking OOL among the very best online retailers.
