Future journalists will write that Chris and Chanel met by accident. Others will say that it was written in the tome of their destiny. If they were still alive, they would say they decided to write it together one day in the book of happenstance.

Clearly the two of them were fed up with being nobody other than your average Joe, and eventually convinced themselves that happiness lay in becoming someone. Celebrities. And for that, ultimately, who cared what price had to be paid, even if it meant their lives? After all, stars have their rightful place up in the firmament, don’t they?

So, Ladies and Gentlemen, here then is the legend of Chris Clooney and Chanel Margulies, who decided one day to become famous, in their own way.

Production in progress.

Characters : 2 women - 2 men -

CHRIS Now I know how to get out of this shitty life and into a happy one. It just came to me in a flash. And this is where you ask me how.

CHANEL How, Chris?

CHRIS I’m going to become a star, Chanel.

CHANEL A star of what?

CHRIS Well I don’t know yet. It’s still a bit fuzzy in my mind, but I don’t have to be a specialist of anything in particular right away, you know. There are plenty of people who are known for nothing in particular. First I have to find a way to get famous, and then I’ll have all the time in the world to figure out what. What do you say?

CHANEL Super.

CHRIS That’s what I said too when I came up with the idea.
