Much like Rob, Charlie and Glenn did with their $100 test pilot of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” we shot this for $200 on 3 Canon HV20s.
STORYLINE: After learning that his ex-girlfriend, Kerri Taylor, has started dating cool-guy Ron Mancinni, a jealous and desperate Gavin finds himself trapped in a self-imposed and absurd fabrication to attain the interest of a new girl in order to fill the void of a broken heart. This time, Gavin becomes the face of drug addiction by accidentally placing a picture of himself in a Drug Addiction PSA while distracted at his job at Product Placement. Gavin’s face is featured on TV, billboards and bus ads, which catches the attention of the beautiful, narcotic-recovering, Tracy, who invites Gavin to her weekly narcotics anonymous meeting out of concern. An overzealous Gavin sees this as the perfect date opportunity and lies about his “long and crooked path of drug addiction.”
STORYLINE: Gavin invents a story about his semi-professional salsa dancing background in order to cha cha his way into a date with the beautiful, former dancer Vivian. In order to save face, and potentially an important client, Gavin must learn how to salsa dance in 3 days.
