“The Date” :30
(Open on a high school couple parking at lookout point)
Guy: Here we are.
Girl: I still can’t believe my Dad even let us touch his new car.
Guy: (not really listening) Oh yeah?
(Guy leans over for a kiss. A banana peel flies through the air and hits him)
(Guy looks back. Cut to the Trunk Monkey sitting in the backseat)
Girl: Uh, I think it came with the car.
(Guy looks freaked out. Girl brings his attention back. He goes in for a kiss)
SFX: Cocking of a shotgun.
(Cut to the Trunk Monkey sitting in the backseat brandishing a shotgun. Guy jumps out of the car and runs into the night)
Anncr. (VO): The Trunk Monkey Chaperone Version. An innovative idea you’ll only find at Suburban Auto Group.
