Lucky Bastards

November 8, 2016

How do they do it? Those lucky few? Could it be the mesmerizing companion that even Chance can't take its eyes off, losing focus for just that single second.

Or are some just born at the exact moment in time that is reserved for these fortunate few.

It could even be that they actually have telepathic powers to control the the movement of the....no it can't be.

Or it is being the owner of that one object to which fortune is attracted to without choice or reservation. They just know. They can see into the future and only play when they know the odds are completely in their favor.

It's not knowing and playing 'all in' because chance favors those who are willing to risk it all.

 

Little boy answers the narrator.

 

"No it doesn't. Chance favors those who start saving early and invest with a reputable investment company".

How do they do it? Those lucky few?

Could it be the mesmerizing companion that even

Chance can't take its eyes off, losing focus for just that single second.

 

INT. CASINO. NIGHT TIME.

 

A man in a tuxedo stands next to a beautiful woman and releases a pair of dice onto a casino table. We see the dice slowly leaving the man's hands.

 

NARRATOR

 

Or are some just born at the exact moment in time

that is reserved for these fortunate few.

 

INT.DAY TIME. KINDERGARTEN CLASS.

 

A little boy is standing in front of his kindergarten class next to his teacher. He spins the arm of a spinner board and looks up to his teacher.

It could even be that they actually have telepathic powers

to control the the movement of the....no it can't be.

 

EXT. DAY TIME. BUSY PUBLIC PARK. 

 

A group of men are anxiously looking up as a coin that has been flipped into the air comes into view above them as it starts making its way down.

 

NARRATOR

 

Or it is being the owner of that one object to which

fortune is attracted without choice or reservation.

 

INT. NIGHT TIME. LIVING ROOM FLOOR.

 

A group of teens are sitting around a corked champagne bottle as it spins around. One girl is rubbing a ring between her thumb and forefinger. The perspective is from the bottle and you can see eagerly awaiting horny teenager's eyes fixated on the bottle.

 

NARRATOR

 

They just know. They can see into the future and only

play when they know the odds are completely in their favor.

 

INT. NIGHT TIME. DEPLETED UNDERGROUND SHED.

 

It's a cock fight in a depleted underground shed. Two men simultaneously throw two fighting cocks up into the air towards each other. Bands of men with money clenched in their fists are flocked around the ring.

 

 

INT. DAY TIME. CLASSROOM

 

The young boy looks directly into camera and, as if automated,  lifts his arm behind him. The camera speed is suddenly the normal 24fps. Without looking he brings his finger down directly on the spinner and stops the needle with exact precision.

 

The following scenes of all the previous scenes happen in quick succession. The music starts reaching a crescendo.

 

The narrator finishes his dialogue and narrates quicker, with a bit more excitement.

 

There are time warps as the transition from expected to unexpected action happens.

 

 

EXT. DAY TIME. BUSY PARK

 

A bird flies overhead and grabs the coin, that the men in the park flipped, in its mouth and flies off. The men are at a loss for words. The bird looks around and gives seems to have a smug expression. 

 

INT. NIGHT TIME. LIVING ROOM FLOOR.

 

The cork of the bottle spinning in the middle of the teenagers pops open and all the teenagers are sprayed with champagne.

 

INT. NIGHT TIME. DEPLETED UNDERGROUND SHED.

 

The cocks suddenly notices each other with erotic excitement. They step in towards each other, go into a tango embrace. The little more voluminous one of the two takes spreads its foot far back behind him arching its back. The smaller one is enraptured by the grace and control of the bigger bird. Men with hands full of cash are stunned and at a complete loss for any sort of reaction.

 

INT. CASINO. NIGHT TIME.

 

The man in the tuxedo who threw the dice, over-throws and manages to lodge both the dice in the nostrils of an old lady standing at the opposite end of the casino table. She falls backwards like a tree and lands flat on her back.

 

NARRATOR

 

It's not knowing and playing 'all in' because

chance favors those who are willing to risk it all

 

 

INT. DAY TIME. CLASSROOM

 

At normal filmic speed it is revealed the boy stopped the spinner on 'take another turn'.

 

He removes his hand from the spinner board and nonchalantly addresses the camera.

 

 

LITTLE BOY

 

No it doesn't. Chance favors those who start saving

early and invest with a reputable investment company.

 

The little boy turns to the teacher. 

 

LITTLE BOY

 

"Wouldn't you agree"?
