Setting: a bustling city pavilion, mid day. A twentysomething white man wearing business casual attire complete with laptop bag walks down the street. A white woman pushing a stroller/pram sees him and says hello, giving him a long once-over, implying interest. The man looks puzzled and continues on a few steps. Three women, one black, two white sit on a concrete bench, all dressed in business wear.
Woman one says, “Look, the new one.” and whistles the traditional “cat call”, while woman two says, “Mmm, I’d like to unwrap that.” and woman three says, “Must be something tasty.” (note: couldn’t quite catch what she said, so that might be wrong.) All three women are giving the man lascivious looks. The man turns and says, with a confused smile, “Excuse me?” Woman one bites the air and kind of growls, says, “Bring it to momma.”
The man spreads his arms out, like he’s presenting himself. We see he’s holding a 3 Musketeers candy bar in his left hand, and it proceeds to float out of his hand into the air. “Get it!” one of the women says, and they all lunge for the candy bar. The man looks on as woman three gets it, his face showing dawning recognition.
Voiceover says: It’s even more irresistable.
Woman three, with her mouth full, points a finger at her face and says, “It’s so good.” Cue the candy-bar-in-a-sea-of-chocolate scene and the voiceover continues: 3 Musketeers now has more chocolate taste than before. Cut to the man who had his candy bar robbed exiting a convenience store with a new bar, bumping into a woman and clutching the candy closer to him to avoid a repeat theft. She says, “Hi! Whoop!” as he jerks.
Cut to a floating 3 Musketeers with “A lighter way to enjoy chocolate” below it (the “lighter” starts to float) and the final voiceover: 3 Musketeers, now with a new richer chocolate taste.
I have thoughts, some good, some bad. Do you?
