[SUPER: “This election will determine the future of our country. And this election will be determined by the Undecided Voter.”]

Undecided Voter #1: It seems that more than 96% of voters have already made up their minds about this election. Well, I guess some of us are just a little bit harder to please. We’re not impressed by political spin or thirty second sound bites. Before you get our vote, you’re going to have to answer some questions. Questions like…

[dissolve to undecided voter #2]

Undecided Voter #2: [Over TEXT] When is the election? How soon do we have to decide?

[dissolve to undecided voter #3]

Undecided Voter #3: [Over TEXT ] What are the names of the two people running? And be specific.

[dissolve to undecided voter #4]

Undecided Voter #4: [Over TEXT] Who is the president right now? Is he or she running? Because if so, experience is maybe something we should consider.

[dissolve to undecided voters #5 and #6]

Undecided Voter #5: [Over TEXT] How long is a president’s term of office? One year? Two years? Three years? Or life? [camera moves over to show the man’s wife]

Undecided Voter #6: Because if it’s for life, frankly, we’re not comfortable with that. We don’t need to be electing a dictator. [dissolve to another undecided voter]

Undecided Voter #7: What happens if the president dies? Has anyone thought about who would replace him? What’s your plan, gentlemen?

[dissolve back to undecided voter #3]

Undecided Voter #3: [Over TEXT] Can women vote? Because if not, as a woman, I’ve got a big problem with that. And by the way, if men can’t vote, in my opinion, that’s just as wrong.

[dissolve back to undecided voter #4]

Undecided Voter #4: [Over TEXT] We hear a lot about our dependence on foreign oil, but just what is oil? And what is it used for?

[dissolve back to undecided voter #2]

Undecided Voter #1: [Over TEXT] Can a woman have a baby just from French kissing?

[dissolve back to undecided voter #5]

Undecided Voter #5: [Over TEXT] If you burp, fart, and sneeze at the same time, will you die?

[dissolve back to undecided voter #7]

Undecided Voter #5: [Over TEXT] Where’s my power cord?

[dissolve back to undecided voter #1]

Undecided Voter #1: We are America’s undecided voters. There’s still a lot we don’t know.

[cut to view of all undecided voters]

All: And we want answers!
