"Puppet" :60

 

(Open on Derrick putting on a furry, puppet-style costume in back of a van. As he gets ready, he speaks in voiceover)

Super: Truth presents Whudafxup with puppets?

Derrick (VO): As long ago as 1969, a tobacco company executive agreed to avoid advertising directed to young people. Yet ten years later, they supplied their products to be featured in The Muppet Movie.

Derrick (VO): Let's see who this guy really appeals to, shall we?

(Derrick walks up to adults on the street)

Derrick: Can I ask you a quick question?

(Woman ignores him and keeps walking)

Derrick: Do you find me cute? Entertaining?

(Man ignores him and keeps walking)

Derrick: Quick question, super fastÉ

(Man walks past him in a hurry)

Derrick: Would you watch a Hollywood movie if I was in it?

(Woman shakes her head no)

Derrick: How 'bout thisÉdo you find me cute?

Police Officer: You gotta leave the park, this is private property.

(Cut to our sad purple guy walking into a park. Out of nowhere, kids are all over him and he happily hops along, laughing and playing with them)

Derrick: What's your name? Hi! Hey how are you? Hi (laughing) Do you guys like me? Yes? Yeah!

(Cut back to Derrick. He now has his puppet head off)

Derrick: Well, it looks like this kind of thing appeals to kids more than adults, soÉ
