    Well done.

    As a side note, as a fan of cigarettes, I particularly enjoyed how much Joel appears to chain smoke while doing these TV spots. Do you think we can just get a segment where Joel smokes and talks about whatever he feels like?

    I’m glad that it looks like an intercom at a McDonalds. It’s a great, portable way to see if Iraqis would like fries with their slaughter.

    Yeah, from the video the scripts seemed insufficiently customizable and overly hostile. Were there other phrases that could be used to de-escalate?

    lol … best part is the end when Joel gets it that his constant smoking might be bad for his health :) well done
