PPSCRIPT1 
ZDLTK152014411040X
I have a product that radically alters the playing field for electrical diagnostics, but my potential customers have a great deal invested in an older, less effective, more destructive method. I would like to create a FULLY HONEST AND TRUTHFUL(!) parody ad that points out the salient features of the product my competitor sells -- that he considers pluses, but which are in fact dangerous and destructive.

This will be a very sincere and motivated "commercial" in the "as seen on TV" vein. The copy will reflect negative attributes of the competing tool, in a positive - highly understated, highly ironic - manner.

The visual media will be produced by me and added in post. Kind of "Billy Mays meets Robot Chicken"...

The finished product will be placed on YouTube - and the talent will receive full billing in end credits.

DRAFT SCRIPT – PPSCRIPT1 – DAN SULLIVAN

(WITH ENERGY AND ENTHUSIASM)

ATTENTION TRUCK AND EQUIPMENT FLEET OWNERS AND MAINTENANCE MANAGERS

ARE YOU TIRED OF YOUR TRUCKS AND MACHINERY WORKING PROPERLY?

ARE YOU TIRED OF HAVING LOADS REACH THEIR DESTINATIONS AND MACHINERY MEETING QUOTAS?

ARE YOU ANNOYED BY EVERYTHING WORKING AS ADVERTISED?

WELL – YOUR SALVATION IS HERE.

INTRODUCING THE *************** – THE ABSOLUTE BEST TOOL AVAILABLE FOR DESTROYING A WIRE HARNESS.

OUR SPECIALLY GROUND AND PLATED TIP IS RAZOR SHARP, AND WE GUARANTEE IT CAN PIERCE AND PENETRATE THE INSULATION ON ANY OEM’S WIRING HARNESSES.

CATERPILLAR, VOLVO, KENWORTH, JOHN DEERE, INTERNATIONAL, MACK AND MORE – NONE OF THESE COMPANIES HAS PRODUCED A WIRE THAT CAN RESIST THE PENETRATING POWER OF THE ***************.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS. THOSE PESKY ENGINEERS SPEND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS DESIGNING AND PRODUCING WIRING AND CONNECTORS THAT KEEP WATER AND CORROSIVES OUT.

SILLY ENGINEERS…

BUT FEAR NOT – THE $150 *************** CAN UNDO ALL THOSE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN SECONDS.

YOU FIND A WIRE THAT LOOKS A LITTLE BIT LIKE THE ONE YOU THINK YOU MIGHT NEED TO BE LOOKING FOR IN THE CIRCUIT YOU’RE NOT COMPLETELY SURE YOU SHOULD BE TESTING, BECAUSE YOU REALLY HAVE NO IDEA WHERE TO BEGIN.

CLIP THE POWER CABLES TO THE VEHICLE BATTERY. TAKE THE POKA-MATIC 3000 FIRMLY IN HAND, AND START POKING!

POKE POKE POKE POKE POKE – THE HOLES IN THE INSULATION ARE PERFECTLY SIZED TO BE COMPLETELY INVISIBLE WHEN SEARCHED FOR BY A FRUSTRATED MECHANIC, BUT JUST LARGE ENOUGH TO ALLOW WATER AND OTHER CONTAMINANTS IN.

AFTER ONLY A FEW SHORT MONTHS IN THE RAIN AND SNOW, THE MUD AND DIRT, YOUR WIRING HARNESS WILL BE FULL OF THE CORROSION AND OXIDES YOU NEED TO BRING YOUR TRUCK TO A SCREECHING HALT ON A MAJOR INTERSTATE, 1000 MILES FROM HOME.

AND DON’T WORRY ABOUT A REAL VOLTMETER GIVING YOU AN HONEST ANSWER WHEN YOU LOOK FOR THE CORROSION. CORRODED WIRES ARE INVISIBLE TO ANY DIGITAL VOLTMETER, SO YOU’LL ENJOY HOUR AFTER HOUR OF FRUITLESS AND FRUSTRATING DIAGNOSTICS IN THE FUTURE.

YOU KNOW THERE’S NOTHING MORE FULFILLING THAN KNOWING YOUR TRUCK WILL BE WORKED ON BY ANOTHER MECHANIC WHO POKES MORE HOLES IN THE WIRES TO FIND THE PROBLEM THE FIRST HOLES ALREADY CREATED.

IF YOU’RE IN THE EQUIPMENT INDUSTRY, COUNT ON COUNTLESS HOURS ON THE PHONE WITH YOUR FIELD SERVICE TECH, HOPING THE NEXT PART WILL FIX THE PROBLEM.

NOTHING FEELS BETTER THAN DISCOVERING FOUR DAYS LATER THAT INSTEAD OF $3000 OF PARTS, ALL YOU NEEDED TO DO WAS CUT, STRIP AND CRIMP A 10 CENT BUTT SPLICE



IT’S THAT EASY.

OUR LOW-END VOLTMETER IS HIGHLY INACCURATE WHEN COMPARED TO BETTER METERS THAT COST FAR MORE, SO THE READINGS YOU GET WILL BE AS CLOSE TO INVALID AS IS POSSIBLE.

GETTING USEFUL INFORMATION ON FOUR DIFFERENT VOLTAGES, FROM THE SINGLE RED/GREEN LED IS TECHNICALLY IMPOSSIBLE. BUT, WE KNOW MOST PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND THE MATH SO WE AREN’T WORRIED.

IT’S GOT A PRETTY RED LIGHT AND A STUNNING GREEN LIGHT – WHAT COULD BE MORE SIMPLE? NO NEED TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT TROUBLESHOOTING. JUST KNOW “STOP” AND “GO”.

IF YOU ORDER NOW WE’LL ALSO THROW IN A FREE ROLL OF BLACK TAPE. THIS TAPE CAN BE USED TO CREATE A COMPLETELY USELESS AND INEFFECTIVE SEAL TO THE WIRE YOU JUST DESTROYED.

IN ONLY A FEW MONTHS YOU’LL HAVE A DRIPPING OOZE OF OIL-SOAKED TAPE LEAVING THAT STICKY MESS ALL MECHANICS CRAVE.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL.

WE’LL ALSO THROW IN – FREE OF CHARGE – A PACKAGE OF ADHESIVE BANDAGES FOR THOSE MOMENTS WHEN YOU FEEL THE SATISFYING STING OF OUR ARROW SHARP TIP JABBING YOU IN THE HAND.

BUT THAT’S STILL NOT ALL – IF YOU’RE ONE OF THE 9 MECHANICS WHO ACTUALLY DO TRY TO REPAIR THE DAMAGE THE *************** CAUSES, WE’LL ALSO SEND YOU A (small) TUBE OF SILICONE. THIS SILICONE IS GUARANTEED TO DRY UP IN RECORD TIME, SITTING IN THE TOOLBOX WAITING IN VAIN TO BE USED.

BUT THERE’S STILL MORE. WE’LL ALSO SEND YOU A LIST OF NEARLY 50 TRIED AND TESTED EXCUSES YOU CAN USE WHEN THE ORIGINAL REPAIR IS DISCOVERED, AND THE MAINTENANCE MANAGER COMES UNHINGED.

THE *************** – A MARVEL OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY USED TO PERPETUATE AN OUTMODED METHOD OF TROUBLESHOOTING ABANDONED OVER 20 YEARS AGO BY SKILLED MECHANICS EVERYWHERE.

*************** – NEVER BEFORE HAS ONE TOOL BEEN MORE RESPONSIBLE FOR CAUSING MORE LOSS OF REVENUE IN ONE INDUSTRY.

*************** – WHEN YOU ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY NEED TO BRING THE WHEELS OF PROGRESS TO A SCREECHING HALT – AND NEVER KNOW WHY.

*************** – IF A CAVEMEN HAD IT, HE WOULD HAVE USED IT TO HUNT A MAMMOTH.

ORDER NOW.
