Get This Party Started
A slow, melancholic violin song begins to play.
V/O: Life got you down?
Cut to the image of a construction worker on the job site. Male, looks to be mid-forties. His eyes look strained, his face and hands are filthy, and he’s sweating up a storm. Removing his hard hat, he wipes copious amounts of sweat from his brow. Behind him, we hear the shout of what we can only assume is his boss.
Foreman: HEY! It ain’t break time!
The worker sighs, putting his hat back on.
Cut to a generic cubical in Any Office, USA. Behind a cluttered desk sits a young woman in business casual attire. Her eyes glaze over as she stares into the blue tint of her computer screen, mindlessly clicking away. She reaches over for her coffee mug and goes to drink but realizes it’s empty. She looks like she is about to cry.
Cut one more time to a kid. Male, mid-twenties. He’s struggling to make several drinks at once behind a Starbucks counter. As he turns to and fro frantically, we can see a line of angry looking people behind the counter. A middle aged blond woman points at her watch and makes a “let’s go” motion. The kid’s head is spinning and he absolutely freezes in anxiety.
V/O: Life is too short.
In a three way split screen, the construction worker, the office worker, and the Starbucks worker all look directly into the camera as if responding to the voice over.
V/O: It’s time to blow off some steam.
All three slowly break out into smiles. The construction worker tosses his hardhat. The office worker ditches her coffee. The barista rips off his apron.
The violin song stops. In its place kicks in the opening chords to the song “Drink” by Alestorm.
NEW SCENE! All three of our heroes are now at a bar. The construction worker is playing pool like a pro, nailing all sorts of trick shots as he is cheered on by a small crowd for his amazing talents. The office worker is on stage, belting out karaoke surrounded by swirling multicolored lights and with absolutely no inhibition. A crowd of people sing along with her as she is clearly the star of the show. The kid from Starbucks is now dressed to kill and surrounded by a swarm of young women as he can’t wipe the grin from his wife.
V/O: It’s time to get the party started.
