{Open on Crack Stuntman standing against a bluish-gray background. Music plays.}

CRACK STUNTMAN: Blah-hi, kids, BLAH'm Crack Stuntman. {places hand on chest} I used to do the voice of {holds up one finger} Cheat Commander on the cartoon man show until contractual mumbo-jumbo {annoyed, speaks rapidly} screwed me out of the sweetest gig I ever had! {suddenly pleading} Please take me back!


CRACK STUNTMAN: {smiling} But I'm also the voice of a much more important non-profit organization called— {shocked and mad, the music stops with a record scratch} Non-profit?! {shakes fist} What the bluh-what?! {faces offscreen, places hand on chest} But I'm still get paid, right?


{Crack is now wearing expensive, jewel-encrusted sunglasses, and his shirt pocket is stuffed with dollar bills}

CRACK STUNTMAN: But I'm also the voice of a non-profit organisation called Pistols for Pandas, {Pistols for Pandas logo appears to his left, Crack looks towards the logo and places his hand on his chest} that I hold very near and dear to my new sunglasses. {points to sunglasses, which sparkle}

{Crack turns, and scene changes}

CRACK STUNTMAN: In light of the recent made-up holiday {a card for "ERF DAY" featuring a green Earth appears} designed to make your parents feel guilty about their car, {the logo slides offscreen} I thought I'd tell you just how P-for-P {two handguns appear and eventually turn into the Pistols for Pandas logo} gets small firearms into the paws of our planet's {raises finger} most adorable, and {the Pistols for Pandas logo turns to face Crack} most unarmed, creatures.

{Scene changes to stick-figure drawings - one has a baseball cap on, the other's head is Crack's. A one dollar bill appears in the boy's hand, who then presents it to Crack}

CRACK STUNTMAN: {voiceover} For every dollar you give to Pistols For Pandas, {Crack laughs; people are heard laughing in the background (although Crack himself is not)} we laugh at, cause', like, what good's a dollar gonna do?

{Crack produces a lighter and burns the dollar bill. The boy looks down, ashamed. The scene changes to a different scene of the boy and Crack. A five dollar bill appears in the boy's hand, who then presents it to Crack}

CRACK STUNTMAN: {voiceover} But for every five dollars you give, {Crack smiles and takes the money. We pan right and Crack gives the money to another stick-figure, this time wearing an apron reading "grōsh"} we buy one box of cereal {the grosher raises his arm and the five dollar note transforms into a box of "prize-O's". Crack smiles and dances} with the best prize in it.

{The scene changes to show Crack Stuntman, with the Pistol for Pandas logo on his chest. His mouth slowly opens to reveal the cereal box before chewing it.}

CRACK STUNTMAN: {voiceover}I eat said cereal, {Crack throws a many-legged toy onto the wall, which rolls down the wall towards the floor} play with the prize, {Crack opens his mouth and removes the box top} and save the box top.

{Scene changes to blank screen. Fifteen box tops appear in a pyrimid formation, which are then revealed to be loaded onto a truck reading "5th grade trucking", driven by Crack}

CRACK STUNTMAN: {voiceover} Once we have enough box tops, I dress up like a fifth grader {Crack drives the truck into a school} and take them to a local school. {We zoom out to reveal that the school is being shown on a computer. The school fades} That buys the school a computer, {Crack is seen sneaking away with the computer} which I sneak out with after charming {Crack sneaks off-screen. A female schoolteacher wearing glasses enters and moves to the center of the screen, waving her arm and emitting hearts} the horn-rimmed glasses off the media centre ladies. {The teacher's glasses fly off}

{Scene changes to a stack of five computers. We then zoom out to see that Crack is quickly diving the truck, now loaded with computers and reading "totally legal", into a pawn shop}

CRACK STUNTMAN: {voiceover} I take these computers to a local pawn shop, {we zoom in on the pawn shop and the scene changes to Crack, a computer, and a stick-figure with an apron reading "p4wn"} and exchange them for the weapons {the pawn shopkeeper raises both arms, a cash register is heard, and the computer turns into a pile of pistols. Crack smiles and dances} pandas need.

{Scene changes to a blank screen.

CRACK STUNTMAN: {voiceover} And finally, {Crack briefly peeks in from the left} when nobody's looking, {Crack sneaks in, holding a bag with a picture of a pistol on it, and makes his way over to a panda habitat at a zoo} I dump these pistols into the panda habitat {Crack throws the bag into the habitat} down at the local zoo.

{zoom on Crack's face, smiling}

CRACK STUNTMAN: Did you hear that? {places hand on chest} I used the word "local" like three times. {raises arm} That means this good cause is even upittier than most! {buzzer sound is heard, and a box displaying "Buzzword Rated", followed by three leaves each containing the word "local", appear on the right side of the screen}

{Scene changes to the real Crack Stuntman, wearing his expensive sunglasses and leaning back in a chair. Behind him is a fence, and behind that are some bamboo trees. Bird sounds are heard.}

CRACK STUNTMAN: We're destroying these poor creatures faster than ever before. {looks at viewer} If we don't give them the means to protect themselves when we come clear-cut {raises arm to draw attention to bamboo trees} their bamboo forests and build a five-star resort, who will?

{A tray with a two-layered cocktail on it slides into view}

CRACK STUNTMAN: I said several limes! {raises two fingers} This is two limes!

{While this is said, engine noises are heard, and one of the bamboo trees behind Crack slowly leans over. Cut to the Pistols for Pandas logo}

CRACK STUNTMAN: {voiceover; as he speaks, the words appear above the logo} Pistols For Pandas: This good cause is good...'cause!
