Please Read This Spoof TV Script, I Found it Hillarious

MINTOFRESH GUMSICLES SPOOF

Open scene to show a church scene with the choir singing and people dancing. The preacher goes forward and lays his hands on some of them blowing air into their faces. They all fall down instantly, helped by ushers.

Next, we see people coming out of the church. The preacher is at the door greeting everybody as they file out. One girl passes by him and drops a note into his hand. He opens it.

Close up on the note to reveal its contents. There’s also a tablet of MintoFresh Gumsicles there.

Note reads:

“Lovely sermon, pastor. But I really didn’t fall because of the anointing.”

Fade screen to show product against white background. Logo and pay-off appear:

MintoFresh Gumsicles. A Breath of Life!

I like it, its funny. BUT, yes theres a but, a small one but still a butt.

You dont need to put on the paper why she fell down. Just give him a breathmint and a dirty look on her face.
That should be enough if its filmed properly.

Let the audience think a bit more, they are not mindless sheep drones. Although we often think they are.

I agree with Minimum. The idea has potential.

Hey guys thanx. Will fix those problems. listen, anybody with any ideas on how best I can go about my company's corporate ad - visually? We're 25 yrs old today and I was thinking of using a young sexy nurse attending to a sick patient as a visual to communicate our youth and our relationship with sick brands. Is it any good?

It might be good from the agency's point of view, but possible clients may be ofended by the comparison with a sick person. It's your call, tho.

a block, you just startet it. Thats very fast for getting a block. Start Spiderwebs, brainstorms, googlestorms (those work awesome) etc.

Okay, I'm not gonna try to be smart about what I don't know. What are googlestorms and how do they work? And no, even though I just started the work, I've been working on five briefs at a time and I think I'm just plain fagged out - mentally. But this deadline's breathing heat down my neck and I gotta produce something.

you think of some basic words that embody the project look them up in Google under images, you collect like 100 of those images and then you try to set a sort of moodbord throught those images and core words
