How He Became Mr. Popular

FADE IN

INT.  HOUSE – NIGHT

As a bloodied man crawls on the floor in pain, flashbacks of a laughing baby crawling on the floor shows

The crawling man bumps into a shelf and books fall on him. The man lifts a book off his chest that reads Reincarnation Incarceration. As the man opens the book the camera pans around its cover transitioning to a book held upside down by a baby.

The man takes a balloon out his pocket, and as he is blowing it up, a kid looking at his mother pointing to the sky shows.

The man removes several band-aids from his pocket and places them on the balloon in a facial recognition format. As he does this, in a flashback, a mother puts a band-aid on a crying child.

As the man kisses the balloon on the mouth, a flashback of a boy kissing and hugging a teddy bear shows.

An impersonation of Heath Ledger’s Joker is then heard.

“Do you wanna know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can’t savor all the little emotions. In … you see, in the their last moments, people show you who they really are.”

The impersonator switches to his natural voice to say the following line, “turn around and beg for mercy, you coward.”

The man rolls on his back with a terrifying look that quickly transitions to a smirk. As he struggles to puts up his middle finger, a flashback of a boy making the same gesture to a bully shows.

The impersonator slices off the man’s finger. As the camera does a close-up on the severed finger you hear a cackle followed by grunts and growls in the background.

The impersonator sees the balloon by the dead body and tries to burst it by stomping on it, but it slips underneath his shoe. He tries again and this time falls on the floor, dropping his knife. He picks his knife back up and tries to stab the balloon on the floor but it keeps slipping away. He picks the balloon up and turns it around where the band-aids are. The mouth on the balloon smirks. As the impersonator gasps in shock the balloon flies into his mouth conforming itself to the trachea, blocking the airway and the ability for the impersonator to breathe.
