Four senior level executives stand on a bare stage facing the audience.
From left to right they speak.
Executive #1 (Steps toward and speaks to audience):
What shithole country did YOUR grandfather come from?
Lights to black.
It’s snowy and icy outside. A few days ago, we’d all be declaring this a winter wonderland.
For the obvious reason, songs about Christmas stop when Christmas is over. For no good reason at all, songs about winter also stop at Christmas, just when winter is moving into second gear.
It’s time we put a halt to this. January is blah. We need to reject this. But this is not just a job for one man. I need all your help. Join me on this freezing, snowy January 12 to be the ones who stand up and say NO to the illogical decree that winter music cannot be played after Christmas. Fun winter music shall not stop at Christmas. It shall stop only when the last snowman melts!
