Red chocolate

This short script for video or TV requires minimal scenery. Like all the ones in the category “Genie” it can refer to a male or female “genie”. The Genie uses a simple costume, with a couple of sheets used as robe and head scarf. Wide purple or red belt, also made with a sheet. The lamp can be made of cardboard. These elements are used for 6 or 7 episodes of Genie written so far. The sponsors for this video set may be multiple. Any product that does something like “magic”. Or anything to fill someone’s wishes, as does the Genie.

The Genie of the Lamp stands guard near Pedrito, who is relaxed while reading a magazine.

Pedrito:
Hey Genie, can you bring me a coffee?

genie:
As you wish, my master. Moka Java, Costa Rica, Brazil?

Pedrito:
Common coffee.
(Genie snorts)

Pedrito:
What’s wrong?

Genie:
Forgive me, but I’m frustrated. I am a powerful Genie, able to grant any wish. I can fly all over the planet, travel on time, get riches, beat the disease, conquer the hearts of women, transmute metals, defeat ogres and dragons, and more. And you just ask me a coffee. Or maybe a sandwich. Or the newspaper. I think I’m a bit wasted … are not I?

Pedrito:
What happens is that I just want a coffee. I do not need to invade Poland or travel to the moon. If you want, just bring it with some sweet bite..

Genie:
Your wish is my command, master. I was thinking that the most delicious in the world is chocolate. I love chocolate, both black and white.

What the world is to ellaborate a little on the subject. There were once other chocolates? The Mayas of Central America were its discoverers, but they are no longer here to tell us how they found it and how they were taking it. And if there were more variants of chocolate in their time? Moreover, scientists are now studying taste, and they found that there are a limited number of stimuli for taste receptors on the tongue, and that these stimuli are combined to form the flavors. I mean, they can make new flavors in the laboratory to find the finest, best, those that make us eat until dropping sick, make us abandon any diet, make us become a ball of sick fat, and fight with our loved ones and our doctors…

Pedrito
Sure, it would be interesting.

genie:
Not to mention the fortune he could make patenting a new chocolate that could make humanity to go crazy.

Pedrito
Well, okay, find that the new chocolate. But hurry up…

Genie:
Yes Master.

(the Genie goes, the master gets to see some papers, looks at his clock with anxiety. Finally comes the Genie, his clothes all disheveled, bringing a plate with tiny red nibbles).

Pedrito:
What happened to you, Genie?

genie:
I got it, love. I traveled to Costa Rica, I went back in time until 1243 and met the Mayas, Toltecs, Olmecs and fourteen other extinct tribes.

Pedrito:
Aha.

Genie:
I discovered the secret of red chocolate and the extinction of the Maya. Both are related. The red chocolate is so tasty that the Indians could not stop eating it. Overweight, diabetic and atherosclerotic became extinct, but happy.

And you know what? I discovered the secret of Mayan pyramids. The fruit of the red chocolate is a tiny pyramid shaped berry. And the great pyramids were businesses selling red chocolate. It was so big a business, that those who built larger pyramids coult reach far and attract more customers.

The Indians were not happy about sharing his secret with posterity. They sent an army after me. But luckily I escaped with these snacks.

Pedrito:
So?

Genie:
So what?

Pedrito:
Where is my coffee?
