[Opens with a black businessman entering a hotel room. He puts his bags down, loosens his tie, he’s ready to go to bed in his pajamas]

[Black businessman tosses and turns in his bed, unable to sleep]
Announcer: That’s why Sharper Image has created the I-Sleep Pro.
[Black businessman holds the little machine up]
Announcer: The I-Sleep Pro not only has a setting for White Noise… but also one for Black Noise.
[Black businessman sets dial on the I-Sleep Pro machine to Black Noise and goes to bed]
