Script in English

SFX: Calm, soothing oriental music under.

MV (Calm, soothing voice): Tai Chi. An ancient study in the art of health and longevity. A series of gentle movements and breathing techniques, that would even put a raging rhino in heat, to sleep. Feel your eyelids twitch as boredom penetrates your every nerve. Thoughts of “Why the hell did I sign up for this crap?” gently shimmy against the boundaries of your brain-numbed skull. As the limbs in your body fall asleep one after the other, look around at the sea of slow motion idiots that surround you. This is no way to spend a Tuesday evening. Life wasn’t meant to be lived this slowly.

(music cut)
