Objective Proficiency p 101. OMG! WTH!

OMG! WTH!
Right, so I'm walking in the street
And this woman stops me
She's got a problem
Her car's broken down
She needs to go for help
She asks me to watch her car for five minutes
So I say, “no problem”
You’d do the same
Anyway, she's only been gone for about 30 seconds when this thing …
This thing falls out of the sky!
This big, round metal object
It whistles through the air and …Bam!
It lands right on the front of her car
The alarm goes off and there's smoke coming out of the engine
Oh my god!
What the hell is it?
I'm no expert but I think …
It’s some kind of satellite
Anyway, the next thing – and you're not going to believe this …
This big black van with one-way glass – you know? – they can see out, but you can't see in
This big black van pulls up
pull up: (of a vehicle or its driver) to stop. E.g. He pulled up at the traffic lights.
And these guys – these big guys – huge guys get out …
And they’re wearing dark suits, and sunglasses and earpieces
You know that film – what’s it called?
The Matrix? Men in Black?
Well that's the sort of thing I'm talking about
Anyway, they get out of the van, these huge guys
They walk over to the car – the one that I'm supposed to be looking after
And they lift the satellite – or whatever it is – off the crumpled bonnet of the car
crumpled: crushed into folds. E.g. crumpled clothes/papers
And put it into the back of their big black Secret Service van
And then, the biggest one turns to me and does this [he puts his finger to his lips]
As if to say, “You haven't seen a thing. Don’t tell anyone about this!”
And then they drive away
And then the woman comes back
And she says, “What the hell have you done to my car?”
So what do I say?

Plan a Video
You are part of a creative team that works for the video production company Just for Laughs Gags.
Your job is to plan prank videos.
Today, you have a task. You have to plan a prank video that makes use of the satellite story. In
other words, the victim of the prank should think that:
a. a satellite falls out of the sky and lands on a car that he or she is looking after
b. the satellite is removed by some secret agents
Start by deciding exactly what you need to make the video. Consider the equipment (cameras,
etc.), props and people (actors, crew members, etc.) Make a list:
