sniper clown redux

A stream of film strips shows two cylindrical metals being tightened. Then a stand and some small clippings inside another component. [Interspersed with images of a presidential procession.] Finally the print AD reveals in the last frame that a clown was simply installing the metal tubes of a fan all along for cooling as he removes make-up after a performance which moved the chiffon curtain in his apartment triggering the SWATS to break in. …In the last frame, the jester comically chimes: “That’s a thousand dullah mahogany work there bruh.”

car insurance

After hitting a parked car a man leaves a note. He can’t sleep at night and tosses and turns on bed thinking about the price going up or the damage he has to pay for. He dreams that he is in hell when he chose the alternate path of not leaving the note. Next day, the door bell rings. The man quickly gets off shower with a towel wrapped around his waist and answers the door and…voila! An unbelievably sexy, brunette, bombshell is waiting with the note, who smiles, pushes him into his room and the door closes.
