A Trip of An Idea

Altenir Silva

 1 - James McDahousing, a writer, is typing the following words on his MacBook: "Then, Gordon, after some minutes of looking in the mirror, turned the light off, and only the walls of that silent place heard the sound of a gunshot. Laurie entered the place, and instead of crying out, she just said, 'Son of a bitch, you died and never gave me an orgasm!' The end."

2 - Ted Gunter, a screenwriter, is reading aloud his screenplay: "Gordon looks at the mirror. He picks up his gun and points it at his head. Gordon: 'My life is lifeless. I've got a profound hate for her. It is time to die.' Then, Gordon turns off the light. Fade out. We hear the sound of a gunshot. Fade in. Laurie enters the room and sees Gordon dead on the floor. Laurie: 'Motherfucker, you died without giving me an orgasm!' Fade. The end."

3 - Tom Futti, a movie director, is talking to the crew and actors: "The scene will be just as I say. After Gordon looks at the mirror, he will turn the light off. We will hear the gunshot, but when Laurie enters the room, she will find Gordon hurt. Before he dies, the two will make love, she will get her orgasm, and then Gordon will die before he gets an orgasm, too."

4 - On the screen in some home theater in the city, we see the character Gordon in a room picking up his gun. He turns off the light. Then, Laurie enters the room. The light comes on. She sees Gordon holding his gun pointed at his head. He sees her and gives up, dropping the gun on the floor. She says, "Gordon, I came back because I want to feel an orgasm! Fuck me, will you?" The two kiss, and the scene fades to the end.

5 - On YouTube, a crew member of the film posted an excerpt of the set that he captured with his cell phone: Laurie, looking directly at the camera, saying in several repeated takes, "Fuck me, will you? Fuck me, will you? Fuck me, will you? Fuck me, will you?"

6 - James McDahousing looks at his cellphone, seeing the viral image of Laurie saying, "Fuck me, will you?" He turns off his cellphone, throws it into the river, and walks away from the bridge shouting, "Fuck you all."
