AN INTENSE ANNOUNCEMENT
We return from the commercial to Melvin Beauregard sitting at a beautiful wooden table in a posh, upscale restaurant. Melvin nervously smiles at the camera and rubs his balding head before realizing they are live.
Melvin Beauregard: Hello PRIME! It’s Melvin, official liaison with MGM coming to you from Wolfgang Puck’s Bar and Grill. Scan the QR code that’s in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, and you can book a table at Wolfgang Puck’s Bar and Grill just like me!
Melvin smiles and nods to someone behind the camera, before a waiter walks up to him with a covered dish. He sets it down on the table with the cover on.
Melvin Beauregard: Now, you may all be wondering what kind of announcement I have for all of you? And truthfully, I should have been at the Cirque to try to top last week’s announcement with Survivor.
The fans in the arena watching on the PRIMEview cheer the word Survivor as Melvin straightens his tie.
Melvin Beauregard: However, this latest announcement might have some of you pretty interested. We’ve been providing surveys to our fans who buy tickets to PRIME on our website in a bundle with a hotel room here at the MGM Grand. And while, you all seem to absolutely love the show that Ms. Troy puts on, there was one critical call out on the vast majority of cards.
Melvin takes the lid off of the cover dish and twirls it in his hand. As it ungracefully falls to the floor, the camera focuses in on a wound up bunch of barbed wire rope.
Melvin Beauregard: And we here at the MGM Grand aim to please our guests. So the MGM Grand will be polling from Culture Shock to Great American Nightmare on July the 1st to find out which two PRIME stars you, the fans, would like to see get a little more violent. To see how we can turn the intensity up to 11.
Melvin looks at the barbed wire rope with eyes the size of saucers as he considers what he’s saying. A second waiter appears with another cover dish, carefully moving the first one to the side. Melvin gleefully rips off the second cover dish to reveal the Intense title.
Melvin Beauregard: The winners of the fan votes… and remember only those of you who stay here at the MGM Grand and take part in our other amenities will be able to vote… will wrestle at Great American Nightmare for the Intense Title in a barbed wire rope match! Boy, this year the Fourth of July is going to be a real doozy here at the MGM Grand. Hopefully you all join us!
The camera fades from Melvin as he gets up from the table, and goes to another video.
