Here is the story - create some kind of art having to do with this story - logo, place, person, tv, baby, binky, ....anything.
The commercial began with a logo, a bluish green saturn like planet symbol, the rest of the frame out of focus.
The logo faded away and the scene came quickly into focus. A happy family of four faced the audience, standing on the normal looking sidewalk in front of their average looking home.
As families go, this looked like your typical suburban variety. A dad, a mom, a son of about 10, and a baby girl nestled in her mother's arms, sucking furiously on a binky.
"Hi!" said the father stiffly. He was obviously not an actor. From the way he began, awkwardly waving at the camera and stiffly greeting the millions of viewers, you could tell he was just a regular guy, a regular Joe, no acting classes taken, no coaching, no pretense.
"We are the Dorq family." He continued.
"This is my wife, 'Ima'".
The woman, wearing her prettiest printed flower dress, dropped her head in a nod slightly, too embarrassed to say anything to the viewing audience.
"This is our new baby daughter, 'Weelibeea'". He continued.
The baby, as if on cue, stopped sucking furiously on her binky, and let it drop to the pavement. Her mom did not notice.
"And this is our oldest son, 'Major'".
The son, the only one of the group not camera shy, waved happily, excited to be on 'The Show' and addressed the world himself, "Major Dorq here!" He was ready. He had dreamed about this moment all his life. This was 'The Show'. This was Primetime. This was Fame.
The dad finished with, "And I'm called 'Wadda.'" He gestured to himself.
The family all waved, as if directed to, as the camera smoothly backed up more, showing a few more of the surrounding homes, the camera positioned higher in the air now, about 30 feet up.
The sun shone down on the street and on this average family, a gentle orange light glistened on shoulders, bald heads, and muscular forearms, giving their translucent blue skin an added glow, almost warm. There they waved, all twelve arms, happy and excited to be the next family featured on the wildly popular program.
A voiceover took the attention of the viewer, "This is your host Johnny Lept. Join me next week for our wildly popular 'Being Human Show' as we walk you down one amazing week, through the thrilling human lives of the 'Dorq' family! Tune in next BlurDay, at Twenty O'Clock!"
The scene faded away, and the planet logo reappeared. Then the screen went dark. For everyone, all around the globe.
This was 'The Show'. This was the only show, on planet Klak.
