Jake & Nick Present: ''This is America'' - A Short YouTube Comedy Sketch

Manchester, UK
Listed by View details

Our sketch will be a parody of an NRA advert. It will revolve around America's 2nd Amendment. A proud grandfather gives an interview to the local TV station whilst his young grandson plays shooting games on his Xbox. The grandfather walks us through various situations in which guns would be a perfect resolution to day-to-day problems but every time he does, things get out of hand. ''I protect my home with my gun and keep it safely stored away from my children''. An armed thief breaks into a gun owner's home, the owner panics and proceeds to run over to the safe to retrieve the gun, the thief just watches and patiently waits. A compilation of similar situations ensues as more chaos unfolds in the 'Cannon' household!

CHARACTER PROFILES:

The Child: A young boy who is very committed to shooting his enemies in the game and as we later find out, in the real world! The boy will spend the majority of his time playing a shooting game and shouting to his fellow team mates through the gamer headset. *Satisfactory American accent required*

A Camera man: This character does not require any cinematography skills! The cameraman will be involved in the TV interview that the grandad is taking part in. The more ridiculous the grandfather's claims get, the more uncomfortable our cameraman gets. As the grandad presents the little boy with a rifle, promising the safety of the exercise, the boy shoots the cameraman as the granddad tells him that despite it being an accident, he shouldn't have stepped on their property.

More characters include (casting completed) :
THE GRANDAD - Played by Nick
THE NRA REPRESENTATIVE - Played by Jake
A HOMELESS MAN
