News, but not the serious kind
Fashion has its ups and downs…
Okay Lamar, you’ve done some pretty strange stuff to save money on our fashion shows, but this time I’m totally confused.
What the hell are we doing gathered here with the fashion press in a posh hotel lobby?
This is our FASHION SHOW, Boss! Every two minutes, a different model comes out of that elevator over there. Ding! Here comes another one!
But Lamar, those outfits are kind of decadent, and the models look pretty expensive. Surely this is costing us a fortune!
Nope, that’s the beauty of it, Boss. Ding! Yeah, right on time. It’s all free!
Free? What’s the secret, Lamar?
That’s the express elevator from Charlie Sheen’s penthouse. We can stand here as long as we want. They’ll keep coming out like clockwork, and the press thinks we staged the whole thing!
Admit it, Boss, I’m brilliant, right?
Lamar, what happens if that elevator opens and instead of another floozy, Charlie Sheen himself comes out?
What if he starts ranting? Have you thought about that? Huh?
Okay ladies and gentlemen, that wraps up our show, let’s head for the exit as quickly as possible. Just leave your cameras and RUN dammit!
