Friday Flash 55 - "There was a Young Man"

There was a young man
who just couldn't understand
why he didn't attract "her" attention.
He flexed, he joked,
he flashed his "smolder"...
even imitated Johnny Depp...

but nothing seemed to work.  
Until, in sheer desperation
just to be NOTICED,
he decided to do something
EXTREME.  It worked!  His name
in horror, she did scream!

(Click on the above link to see what horrified her)

My son and his friends created a commercial for "Dandruff Shampoo"...  My son is the one in the shower...  This is a "twodaydude" production, directed by Austin Elliott, concept by Zac Messik and acted by Will Bednar.  The photo of them all dressed up like pirates was fun - we were on our way to see "Pirates of the Caribbean" which we loved despite what the critics had to say about it!

This is for Friday Flash 55, a story in 55 words.  Please go see the G-Man's site "MrKnowItAll"

You've got yourself quite an actor there.

Great video. But truth: I kept worrying that he'd get the powder in his eyes! LOL.

She screamed in laughter, right? Laughter. Cause that was just too funny.

I can't imagine any girl he couldn't attract, Margaret. :) What a life he has lived thus far. I declare!

amazing 55.

Leo said...

So, did he manage to keep her attention after that horror scream? ;) :) Nice build up to the video I felt!

I am so glad you all got a chuckle out of the video- Will and his friends are participating in a Film Festival right now. They got the topic and have 24 hours (or something like that) to write the script, film and edit it. The winning flicks (categorized by age, I think) will be shown in a movie theater downtown. Keep your fingers crossed... Oh BTW, would anyone like to purchase the "Dandruff Shampoo"? LOL
