1. I ran this idea past my Black friends...
It's a proposed Coca-Cola commercial. The scene is a spooky looking cabin out in the woods. A couple of SUVs pull up and black and white preppy 20-somethings (male and female) get out of them, all wearing and carrying designer camping gear. The whites look at the cabin and start saying things like, "This is going to be the coolest camping trip ever!" The blacks look at each other with doubt in their eyes, and one of them tells the white people that they're going to head back to the last town and get a couple motel rooms. The white people chide them for being chicken. The black people are like, "Whatever" and leave as the white people start unloading gear while joking around, making chicken noises.

The next shots are back and forth between what's going on with the white and black people. While the blacks are having fun, eating and goofing around in an all-night diner (drinking Coca-Cola of course), the shots of the white people show them running terrified through the woods, close-ups of them screaming, and flashes of light off of a big knife.

It ends with a shot from the street outside the diner looking through the window at the black people having fun then going blurry when the Coca-Cola insignia pops up.

They loved the idea.
