#2473: Product Launch
[Hairy and Ponytail are standing to the left of a wrapped object. Cueball is standing on the right.]
Hairy: The press is here for the product launch!
Hairy: Remember, people are wary of smart devices, so we want to strike a non-threatening tone.
[Pan over to just Cueball; Hairy and Ponytail are off of the left side of the panel.]
Cueball: Hang on, did you say non-threatening?
Hairy: Yes. Why-
Cueball: Nothing. It’s probably fine.
[Cueball is standing on a platform next to the previously seen wrapped object.]
Cueball: They say technology can change the world, for good or for evil. Our new product will show how true that is.
Cueball: We hear the plaintive cries of our customers. We want to give them what they deserve.
[Zoom in on Cueball, who has his hand up in a gesture.]
Cueball: Now, let us expose our product to the atmosphere for the first time, surprising and delighting customers within a five-block radius.
(Voice off-panel): I’m leaving.
Cueball: No, don’t worry! A staggering number of people will survive!
