FADE IN:

From the emptiness of a deserted night’s street we slowly tilt up on one single figure in the shadows. (Foreground)

And a large window up above their back that could serve as a billboard. (Background)

We come to another figure, this one there in the window.

A neon light suddenly outlines this figure, and with EVERY SYLLABLE a new neon light pops up, making the previous one no more as the figure/neon, who comes to life with the movement of EACH SYLLABLE, performs about the window with funky moves and mic/mic stand.

 

LYRICS

Oh I’ve been watching you for so long

Don’t want to get you on the telephone

Just want to get you

Get you to my home

So I can get you

Get you all alone

 

On the opposite side of the window, and in his small apartment which is only lit by the lights from outside, Darren performs to camera with his mic/mic stand, the moonlight on the window outlining his image.

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

Better believe it

 

Jump angles as he moves his body positioning.

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

There’s so much shit on the radio

 

Extreme close-up, his eyes close.

 

LYRICS

I can close my eyes to the music

 

Another angle/another position.

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

Right now none of it turns me on

 

And another…

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

Kylie Minogue won’t take my calls

I need to sell a few more records

 

And another… (Puts hand to ear on hear)

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

My friend Matt just wrote the hook

you’ll here in a few more seconds

 

Extreme close-up, high/tilted down on D’s mouth.

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

Yeah

 

Back outside, his neon performance in the window. (The mysterious figure still out there in the shadows)

 

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

Oh I’ve been watching you for so long

Don’t want to get you on the telephone

Just want to get you

Get you to my home

So I can get you

Get you all alone

 

Once again on the inside, Darren (facing window/back to camera) turns his head to the side/looks downward. (Neon still outlining him)

Shakes his ass…

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

Better believe it

There’s so much sex on my MTV

I can shake my ass to the music

 

But suddenly stops, small TV in Background airing static.

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

But there ain’t no videos on

 

Like a smooth robot he turns to camera with a 180°.

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

Nobody climaxing

they’re faking

I need to channel this frustration

 

He shoots a hand out and freezes.

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

All this tease and no release

but I’m glued to the station

 

Extreme close-up, high/tilted down on D’s mouth.

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

Yeah

 

Neon performance from outside. (Figure still below)

 

LYRICS

Oh I’ve been watching you for so long

Don’t want to get you on the telephone

Just want to get you

Get you to my home

So I can get you

Get you all alone

 

Darren’s real-life image smoothly appears within the neon. (Neon movement still going on)

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

Okay

everyone listen

I need complete

uninterrupted attention

Lately I’ve learned a few hard lessons

And right now I could use some kissing

Here we go

Mmmm

You know I’ve been waiting so long

 

And he goes into the routine, only now it’s somewhat more real/alive/funkier.

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

Oh I’ve been watching you for so long

Don’t want to get you on the telephone

Just want to get you

Get you to my home

So I can get you

Get you all alone

Oh I’ve been watching you for so long

Don’t want to get you on the telephone

Just want to

Get you

Get you to my home

So I can get you

Get you all alone

Oh I’ve been watching you for so long

Don’t want to get you on the telephone

Just want to get you

Get you to my home

So I can get you

Get you all alone

Oh I’ve been watching you for so long

Don’t want to get you on the telephone

Just want to get you

Get you to my home

So I can get you get you all alone

 

Start to slowly fall back, the figure from the shadows (who still stays within them) leaving and heading on down the street. (Daniel Jones)

 

LYRICS

(Darren singing)

There’s so much shit on the radio

Oh I’ve been watching you for so long

Don’t want to get you on the telephone

Just want to get you

Get you to my home

So I can get you

Get you all alone

You better believe it
