#23: Do a little Business

Post by Kagoma_Kage » Wed 21st May 2008

With the premier of any big film media inevitably becomes awash with tie in product advertisements promoting it.
We've all seen these commercials, but it's rare we ever have the chance to write them.
Your Challenge this week is to take any product (real or imagined) and try to sell it.
All you have to do is write up a short commercial script featuring any or all of the AF characters in some way.
Good luck.


[For those that don't know what I'm talking about, I mean commercials like these.]

I'm gonna write mine in a mix of Narrative POV and Roleplay POV, is that OK?

*big screen text* GATORADDEEE

*Artemis appears*

Artemis: (under breath) ...why the heck are they making me advertise gatorade, of all things? *Artemis seems to notice we all just heard him.* :shock: Uh... hi everybody... umm... *seems to be at a loss of words.*

*Big poof and cloud of smoke and Holly comes in*

Holly: So we were just talking about Gatorade, and how AWESOME it is. So Artemis, what do you think of Gat--

*Big cloud of smoke. Loud coughing noise. As smoke fades, we can see Juliet on her stomach on the floor.*

Juliet: Dang that teleportation thing is hard! I think I broke a nail!

*cricket chirps*

*Juliet notices big crowd of people and live national TV camera on her*

Juliet: Uh.. hi ...So erm what were we talking about?

Holly: Gatorade. Anyway, Artemis, what do you think of---

*Big BOOM comes from offstage. Butler appears, running after a crowd of protesting monks and shooting his gun.*

Holly: That was weird. Artemis what do you think of Gatorade?

Artemis: *under breath to Holly* I have nothing!!! *to the audience* Gatorade is... uh... really.. like nothing I've ever had before... *coughs a little bit*

Holly: Juliet what do you think of Gatorade?

Juliet: It's awesome.

*Cloud of smoke and Minerva comes in*

*Artemis sees Minerva.*

Artemis: :shock: *faints*

Holly: Well.. uhh... that's all, folks!


*Big poof and everybody's gone.*


How was that?

Ah, I'll give it a shot too. *thinks hard*

So, Mulch is planning to escape again. He has gotten punishment again, this time the death sentence. Holly brings him his last meal, which is pizza and... a large 2-liter bottle of coca-cola.

Holly: Here's your last meal, Mulch.
Mulch: Thanks, Holly. Oh, and thanks for being able to sneak that Coca-Cola in here. I really appreciate that.
Holly: Ah, we've been buds. I'll miss you when you're gone...
Mulch: Not to mention you will have to deal with those situations you and Artemis get involved in all the time without my help. Oh, and the ladies will miss me.
Holly: Sure, Mulch. Dream on.
Mulch: Oh, I will, don't worry.

Mulch takes the pizza and swallows it whole. Then, he unscrews the Coca-Cola bottle, and drinks it all completely.

Holly: I'll see you at Artemis.
Mulch: What? How did you know?

The gas bursts out of Mulch, he can't control it. He flies right up. Butler and Artemis are above ground, waiting for Mulch. When Mulch flies in the air, Butler catches him.

Mulch: Thanks. You know, I really love Coca-Cola. This was my easiest escape!
Artemis: I know. We all love Coca-Cola!
Butler/Mulch/Holly (you somehow hear her): Yes, we all love Coca-Cola!


So, is this good enough?

Man, this one is hard. I had to think on it for awhile. This commerical would have been broadcasted on LEP TV.

[You enter the scene to see Butler and Artemis sitting at a table, both in Armani suits and sunglasses. Artemis is deep at work, scribbling on a piece of paper. Butler removes a black pen from his suit jacket and uncaps it, looking at the camera.]

Butler: My name is Butler. This is my principal, Artemis Fowl. When Artemis is thinking, he is unaware of what is around him and therefore I am there to protect him. While I could kill anyone who threatens Artemis with my bare hands, it is wise to have a Plan B.

[Butler picks up the pen]

Butler: This is a simple Bic pen. With this pen I can kill a person in exactly seventeen different ways and damage them an additional thirty-three. Bic pens have the hardest nibs of all medium-grade ballpoints, which makes it the most lethal. They cause no trouble during baggage checks at airlines and can easily be concealed on one's person.

[Artemis, looking annoyed, clicks the top of his mechanical pencil. It is out of lead. Butler hands him the Bic and Artemis resumes working.]

Butler: You can also remove the thin straw of ink in the middle of the pen and insert something more deadly, like a needle or threads of razor wire. I recommend that all bodyguards carry one on your person at all times. Unless you are planning something against Master Artemis. If that is you, I would suggest outfitting yourself with something more dangerous before I hunt you down.


Aaaaaand... CUT! That's a wrap. Or at least my best shot. XD

Bic pens are magical. :D

^Haha, both of your entries were funny!

Since there has to be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, I'm sure if a fourth person doesn't enter, I'll at least get 3rd XD (I still think mine for gatorade was funny... wasn't it?)

Inkheart, the contest ends a week after Kagoma starts it, so I would assume that it is either the deadline has already passed and she hasn't judged it, or on Monday it'll be over.

For the record I was leaving this one open till Monday, in the hopes of getting a few more entries.When I didn't judge on deadline (or within a day or two of it) it means the contest is still open. Sorry for not making that clear, this Challenge will be closed tomorrow.

Results are in.
(Not there there was much contest.)
First:
Target Aquired
Yet again you utterly fail to disappoint.
Your entry highlights exactly what I had in mind when selecting this Challenge.
Very realistic, very good.

Second
HollyShort9
Good job for not just going with a planed shoot idea, the random "sudden attack" idea works for you. You've gotta do what works for you.

Third
Meova
I like that you gave a backstory to your set up, but I honestly thought it was going to be Dominoes ad for a second. :) , also I like that you poke fun at the "let's stuff everyone in one shot approach" there in the end.

Kudos to all entrants! Just so you know, I thought that I should give the challenge a try. What do YOU think?
Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable? Who cares! It's going to turn into ketchup anyway.

Oh! And yogurt rules! Yeah! Go bacteria!
