[ SUPER: The following is a paid advertisement from Ashton Kutcher ]
[ A montage of QUICK SHOTS shows Ashton Kutcher posing. ]
[ SUPER: ENTREPREUNER. ACTOR. VISIONARY. ]
[ Ashton is seated. ]
[ SUPER: ASHTON KUTCHER, TWITTER ENTHUSIAST ]
Ashton Kutcher: Over the past year, I’ve been given a lot of attention because of my involvement with Twitter. But recently, I started to feel like Twitter wasn’t enough…
[ QUICK CUTS OF Ashton saying “wasn’t enough”. ]
Ashton Kutcher: I wanted to give my followers total access.
[ SUPER: TOTAL ACCESS ]
Ashton Kutcher: They knew what was coming out of my mind, not what was coming out of my body. And that’s why I developed the first flatulence networking system.
[ SUPER: FLATULENCE NETWORKING SYSTEM ]
[ Ashton faces the camera. ]
Ashton Kutcher: Tooter.
[ GRAPHIC: TOOTER ]
[ A well suited, British computer guru, GARY PUNDLE, is seated. ]
[ SUPER: GARY PUNDLE, TOOTER BRAND MANAGER ]
Gary: It’s really ingenious. Every time Ashton has a gastronomic emission, or a “gission”, it’s broadcast to millions of his followers from around the world. And they’re alerted with a distinctive ringtone.
[ INT. OFFICE – DAY ]
[ A rotund OFFICE WORKER types at his desk when his passing gas ringtone alerts him. He picks up the phone and views the screen. It displays ASHTON KUTCHER TOOTED! ]
[ COMPUTER ANIMATION shows a male body being outfitted on his backside. ]
Ashton Kutcher (V/O): The process is simple -- I attach a receiving pad to the flesh side of my under bones, then I run a non-toxic wire up my seam, then plug it into my mobile device.
[ BACK to ASHTON ]
Ashton Kutcher: Then I pretty much kick back and bust some ass.
[ Lead singer of The Roots and bandleader of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” ?UESTLOVE is seated. ]
[ SUPER: ?UESTLOVE, MUSICIAN & TWITTER USER ]
?uestlove: At first, when Ashton told me about this idea, I was against it. But now? I’m still against it.
Ashton Kutcher: It was a good system, but it still wasn’t capturing the essence of Ashton and a big part of that is smell.
[ QUICK CUTS of Ashton saying “smell” three times. ]
[ A young inventor in white lab coat, STEFAN HORKINGS, is seated. ]
[ SUPER: STEFAN HORKINGS, DIGITAL ODOR INVENTOR ]
Stefan: Adding the smell at first was a challenge, but Ashton insisted…
[ The rotund office worker from earlier gets a smell ringtone from his phone. His puff of air blows his hair and he’s aghast. ]
Stefan: The testing phase just sucked!
Gary: Tooter uses Micro Crystal Technology to translate the entire gamut of flatulent subtlety. Whether it’s…
Gary (V/O): [SCROLL] SDB’S, CHURCHHOUSE CREEPERS, CRUNCH FROGS, DRIFTERS, JIMMY BUFFET’S CROOKED CAULIFLOWER COCKTAILS, LOW FLYING JETS, CRACK RATTLERS, SIMPLE PUTT-PUTTS, THE BOSSANOVA, PUMPERNICKEL SLAMMIES, ADVANCED PUTT-PUTTS, THUNDER DUMPLINGS, OR RIP TORNS.
Gary: We wanted everyone to experience Ashton’s “gissions” in all their glorious shame.
[ EXT. ROCKEFELLER PLAZA – DAY ]
[ A TOOTER SUBSCRIBER, young women in her 30’s, stands alone. ]
[ SUPER: TOOTER SUBSCRIBER ]
Tooter Subscriber: I didn’t realize what I was signing up for and I’ve actually tried to unsubscribe a few times but I haven’t been able to. I like “That 70’s Show” okay, but this, just seems invasive.
[ ?uestlove listens to his Tooter ringtone and grimaces. ]
?uestlove: Ashton’s been eating beans again.
[ Ashton stares off and passes gas. ]
[ INT. DRESSING ROOM – DAY ]
[ SUPER: THEM CROOKED VULTURES, “SNL” MUSICAL GUESTS ]
[ THEM CROOKED VULTURES are relaxing on a couch. Josh Homme hears Dave Grohl’s ringtone go off. ]
Josh Homme: Dude, what is that smell?
Dave Grohl: Ashton Kutcher just farted again.
Josh Homme: Very cool.
[ John Paul Jones stares sadly at the camera. ]
John Paul Jones: I was in Led Zeppelin.
[ BACK TO TESTIMONALS ]
[ Stefan’s phone rings. ]
Stefan: I’m sorry, I’m going to take this.
[ Stefan answers his phone. ]
[ The sound of passing gas. ]
Stefan: It’s a Kutcher Toot! Oh God!! I’m gagging at the mouth!
Ashton Kutcher: So subscribe today. Tooter -- Because I’m that important.
[ SUPER: BECAUSE I’M THAT IMPORTANT ]
[ EXT. ROCKEFELLER CENTER – DAY ]
[ The Tooter subscriber’s hair blows from the Toot she just received on her cell phone. ]
Tooter Subscriber: Ashton’s at McDonald's.
