Gavin: Is it- Is it on? Hi! I'm Gavin. (Shakes his head.) You probably already know that, but, eh- I'm going to be dedicating my- my Deepgoat logging to something a little bit different. Yeah, I-I-I-I think I'm gonna start hosting a-a series of behind-the-scenes videos of our strike here at JustIncredible.TV. (Cut to a shot of the co-workers sitting on the stairs watching Gavin.) Uh, charting our progress as we try to resolve our very reasonable demands and strike a blow for the common working man. Oh, well, a-and all woman.
He-he hasn't - the company, that is - hasn't got a leg to stand on. And he's gonna crack anytime soon, so, guys... (Rubs his hands together.) Are you with me? Guys, are you with- are you with me?
Gavin: Yeah? Well, say "yeah", then.
Gavin: Just- Well... (Takes the camera from Julia.) Meryl, you've been with the station now, what?
Meryl: Four months.
Gavin: And you've been paid?
Gavin: Exactly. You know, um... Lee, a-are you gonna strike or are you gonna scab?
Lee: Uh, well, I'm on work experience, so can I technically be a scab? (Gavin groans and hands the camera back to Julia.) 'Cause I'm not actually being paid in any actual money. Creme eggs count?
Gavin: (Sighs.) Let's do it.
(Cut to Gavin leading the group down the hall.)
Gavin: Of course, these behind-the-scenes videos aren't the only output we're gonna produce. I mean, if we get this right, uh, this could be the turning point - could be the launch of a whole new internet success. An alternative media phenomenon! (Laughs and nods at the camera.) Are you with me?
Gavin: Jules. Are you with me?
Julia: Hell yeah!
Gavin: Yeah? Well, go on, then. (Grabs the camera from Julia.) Well, go on, then. (Julia looks irritated.) He's in there. Go on.
(Julia knocks on the door to Justin's office, and tries the handle, to find the door locked.)
Julia: Well, he's obviously in the main office.
Gavin: (Sighs.) Take this.
(Gavin hands the camera to Julia. Cut to Gavin walking toward the main office. He stops in front of the door.)
Gavin: This is for, uh, anyone who's ever worked for nothing. Or-or interned. Or-or- Or done work experience! (Points at Lee. Lee mouths "Yeah, that's me".) Yeah, anybody who's ever given away anything for free. Well, it stops right now. And it stops here. This is a message (Points at the camera.) to any of you rip-off merchants out there in the world, yeah? We're not having it anymore. And we're coming for you. And we're gonna stick it up ya! So smile; you might enjoy it.
(Gavin nods at everyone and turns nervously to the door. He quickly opens the door and charges in, only to find the office deserted.)
Lee: Maybe he's gone to lunch?
(Cut to Gavin lifting a sign saying "PLAY ME TEAM" off of a TV on Julia's desk. He shows it to everyone else.)
Julia: Has anyone got the remote?
(Cut to a video playing of Justin, dressed as Jesus.)
Justin: You have returned to me, my prodigal team! Friends! I created you in my image. We had a vision! We, together, were gonna shake up the world! Of TV. Online.
If you are watching this, you will know that there have been tumultuous events in the world of JustIncredible.TV. Unfortunately, friends, I have been too creative off-camera, and have begat myself a mix-up in the company's accounts. I-I won't go into too much detail, but the tax refunds that I was expecting have been changed and the differences between me and the Customs & Excise have meant that I should probably move on. (Nods.) And that I-I cannot- I cannot reward you for- I can- Uh, fiscally. I cannot- I cannot pay you. Uh, for... For the, uh, for the work and effort that, uh, that you have put in.
But! I have ensured that you have the chance to continue our great work! I had the foresight to sign over full directorship of JustIncredible.TV to Lee. (Lee looks worriedly at the camera.) Faithful Lee. I know you're out there somewhere, and it is only you that has the capability to take this enterprise to the next level.
And so, farewell, my fellow travelers. May we meet again and- and may the force of Justin be with you. TEAM!
(The video stops to show Lee looking worriedly at the screen. Kelly turns to him and Gavin looks confused. The telephone rings.)
Julia: Well, that's it then, isnt it? The end of JustIncredible.TV.
Gavin: That means we're not gonna get paid.
(Meryl answers the phone.)
Meryl: Lee, there's some people in reception for you.
Lee: Um... T-Tell them I'll be down in a jiffy.
Lee: Um... Then, when I get back, we'll get to work, get this station back on air, and-and we'll have a new relaunch and new logos... (Gavin looks annoyed at the camera.) Um... What do you think of "Lee TV"?
(Lee pretends to shoot guns in the air, blows his fingertips and sticks them at his side. He then quickly exits. Everyone looks shocked.)
Meryl: Bugger this. (Grabs the printer from Julia's desk.)
Julia: Um... Is she allowed to do that?
Gavin: See any better ideas? (Grabs the TV off of Julia's desk.) Eh?
Gavin: Well, it's not exactly a strike, but it'll do.
Julia: Guys! Um, excuse me? (Kelly grabs equipment and a laptop from another desk.)
Gavin: Hey, do you want this plant? (Gavin picks a plant off of Claire's desk.) Can I take this plant?
Claire: Take it.
Gavin: Okay. Actually, no, I'll take the laptop instead. (Puts down the plant and picks up the laptop on her desk.) I'll take the laptop.
(Julia looks at a monitor, which is displaying CCTV footage from reception.)
Julia: Guys... (Lee approaches two men in the footage.) Guys, come and look at this. It's- (The men show their badges to Lee.)
(Cut to Gavin carrying the TV, a laptop bag, and camera equipment. Claire is shoving electronics into a bag. Gavin pulls at a chair with his foot.)
Gavin: Can you help me get this chair?
(Cut to the CCTV footage, showing Lee being forcibly taken from the building by the two men.)
Julia: I think we should be worried. I really think Lee's in a lot of trouble.
(Jonathan turns off the monitor Julia has been watching and takes it. Cut to Gavin pulling the chair, loaded with electronics out into the hall.)
Gavin: See you guys later.
- The "Play Me, Team" paper attached to the computer monitor is reminiscent of the "Play Me" tapes in the Saw horror movie franchise, in which the mad-man "Jigsaw" leaves threatening messages to his victims.
- Justin's appearance as Jesus suggests that he filmed his video to the team shortly after The Easter Party. He again makes a Biblical reference, stating that he created the team in his image.
- Justin's farewell to the team is a variation on the line "May the force be with you", famous from the Star Wars films.
