So Delicious

Ron slicked back his hair with a fluidity that only years of greasy movement could create. He squinted into the sun and turned to his actors.

“You just don’t get it. We’re not selling the product, we’re selling you. Who gives a shit about a chicken sandwich with some pickles on top? Even if it is free.”

Stacy is the pierced surfer girl. She stands on Venice beach, with a backdrop of the pacific ocean, carefully holding her sandwich just the way an acting coach taught her.

“That’s what I’m talking about,” muttered Brad. “Who eats these salt-water filled crap muffins anyway?”

Ron wasn’t amused. “Shut the fuck up and let’s get this over with.”

The production crew took its place, ready to craft another consumerist masterpiece.
