(A montage of everyone dancing and drinking is shown. Cut to Lee filming everyone.)
Lee: It's the twentieth of March, the date in everyone's diaries. It's the JustIncredible.TV Easter party! (Gavin throws a party horn at Lee.)
(Cut to another montage of everyone drinking and dancing. Gavin looks irritated every time the camera is on him. Lee approaches Julia as she's dancing.)
Lee: Hey, Julia, where's your secret boyfriend? (Julia gives Lee the finger.) Oh, come on, don't be such a meanie, boss. It's a good chance for us all to get to know each other. Uh, (inaudible). (Julia gives Lee an annoyed look.) Come on, Julia, make some noise!
Julia: Wooo. (Lee pops a party popper behind Julia's head. Julia screams as Lee laughs.) Lee!
Lee: Hey, Julia, (Cut to Lee.) do you like my costume?
Julia: Lee, you nearly had my bloody eye out!
Lee: So it's two hours in. Everyone's having a great time! I can feel it in my bones, this is gonna be the best Easter ever! Come with me, you can be my plus one.
(Cut to another montage of everyone dancing. Two of the partiers get drunk, one of them throwing up in a bucket. Cut to Gavin sitting on a desk next to Julia, with the other drunken co-worker sleeping on his shoulder.)
Gavin: I'm not- I-I'm not just moaning, honestly, it's- All I'm saying is I am staying put 'til he gets here, and I don't understand why we're letting him do this to us. Why don't we all just rise up and take action, or...? It- Th-Th-This is classic big business mind-destruction technique. You know? Keep the minds of the workforce occupied with cheap morale boosters instead of actually paying them fairly - or paying them at all!
(Julia drinks her champagne, seeming uninterested.)
Gavin: A-and are we happy to go along with this? Yeah. (Looks toward the door.) Oh, Christ, no.
(Lee pans to the door, showing Justin dressed as Jesus Christ.)
Justin: Peace be unto thee, my team! I have returned to the manger! (Turns to a party guest sitting nearby.) Blessed are ye who work for me. And lo, shall my work be done!
Julia: (Sighs.) This is wrong on, like, so many levels.
Lee: Yeah, well, he wore the proper costume...
Justin: (Approaching Lee.) Let me anoint the, my child. Welcome to my heavenly kingdom!
Julia: (Turning to Gavin.) So, um, mind-distractions, workforce...
Gavin: Yeah. I think we may have to wait a little longer to initiate any kind of meaningful negotiations with him.
Justin: Come on, everyone, let's get this party started right! (Stands on Julia's desk.) You've seen the website, now bear witness to the real thing! Hit it!
(Justin dances on Julia's desk. He gets down and dances more. The drunken co-worker approaches another, who pushes him away. He then falls down on the floor behind a back desk. Cut to Gavin looking irritated. Cut to Justin pouring water into a cup.)
Justin: Right. (Hands the cup to a co-worker and fills another.) I have water, who wants wine?
(Gavin walks over to Justin.)
Gavin: Right. Justin... You can keep ducking as long as you want, you know, why we've not been paid or why you keep putting the launch date back...
Justin: I don't mind that thou- thou questioneth my ministries, my child, uh... I embrace it! I welcome it. Why, let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.
Gavin: Right. You know you're taking the piss, and-and we know you're taking the piss, but you know what? We can sit this one out as long as you like.
Justin: Gavin. Gavin. All things come to he who waits.
Gavin: So that's it then, is it? Okay. Well this is the end of the line. We're not working another moment until we get paid.
(Julia looks nervously at the camera.)
Justin: For everyone who exalts himself is humbled, but he who humbles himself is exalted.
Gavin: Okay, well, have fun.
Justin: But what profit shall he have who gains the whole world, yet loses his soul?
Gavin: (Nods.) Well, you know, you heard the man. That's what he thinks of us. So, we-we're solid, yeah? That's it. Down tools. (Puts his beer on a desk.) Staging a walk-out. (Heads to the door.) Come on! Everybody out! (Opens the door.) Come on!
(Everyone looks nervously at Justin. Julia walks out and is followed by another co-worker.)
(Lee pans back to Justin.)
Justin: Will you turn your back on me, Lee? (Points at the camera.) Will you be my Judas?
(Lee slowly lowers the camera.)
- This video is the first in either series to make use of a slide cut, rather than the typical jump cut from scene to scene.
- Justin, throughout the video, quotes the Bible. When he questions Lee about being his Judas, he is referring to the biblical figure, Judas Iscariot, who is traditionally known for betraying Jesus.
