The Flamemaster 3000

Open, a boy and a girl kneeling down in the garage burning their Dad's "Playboys" and giggling.

DAD: (OS -- angry) Are you kids playing with matches?


Dad bursts into garage. Furious, but it's an act.

DAD: Don’t lie to me! Why in Sam Hill would you play with matches. (Suddenly smiling.) When you could play with this?!

Two shiny, plastic flame-throwers magically appear in the kids' hands.

KIDS: Wow! The Flamemaster 3000!

ANNOUNCER: (VO) Yes, kids love the Flamemaster 3000— 'cause kids love fire!

Shot of the kids running around burning the crap out of everything with their cute flame-throwers.

ANNOUNCER: (VO) The Flamemaster 3000!

Montage illustrates --

ANNOUNCER: (VO) It’s perfect for making smores, dealing with hoof-and-mouth outbreak and defending yourself from zombie attack!

And it's always perfect for Christmas! This holiday season, make your kids' eyes light up with joy! Give the Flamemaster 3000. They'll love it!

KIDS (in unison) 'Cause kids love fire!
