Scene One Narrator [walks out gesturing and smiling] Hi there, my name is Tre Stahley and I’d like to introduce you to a world renown adventure known as The Crusades. This escapade has become a hit sensation in Europe and is sure to do the same here. [casually strolls around] Between 1000 and 1200 C.E., a series of ‘holy wars’ were held between the Christians and the Muslims. This war centered around the city of Jerusalem. The objectives of these wars were to gain back the holy land and expel the muslims. You too can relish in these holy wars, but you must call in the next six minutes. Operators are standing by. Don’t take it from me though, here is a first hand listen at Sir Thomas Payne, one of the Knights who has participated in The Crusades!

Scene Three Narrator If that wasn’t motivating, I don’t know what is! Although Thomas Payne makes a great testimonial, I’d like to welcome here with me, Sister Rose. [camera pans to Sister Rose] Sister Rose Lovely being here Tre, thank you for the warm welcome. Narrator Of course. Now tell me, why do you recommend partaking in The Crusades? Sister Rose Well Tre, I truly believe that gaining back the holy land is important to the Christian faith. Apart from that, killing an infidel is a one way ticket to heaven. Narrator That sounds like one heck of a perk to me! Sister Rose It certainly is Tre. God does not discriminate either, people of all ages and economic standings are welcome. Why we even had children join in on one of the crusades! Narrator Isn’t that just lovely! Well thank you again for your time Sister Rose. [camera pans back to Narrator] After both of
