Video: The Challenges


It’s a really nice day today. It’s nice relaxing in the sunshine.

I think I’m going to close my eyes for a little bit. I’m really tired.

Voice: “Pst!”
Emily: “What was that?”
Voice: “Pst. Pst. Over here!”
Emily: “What was that?…What’s that?”
Voice: “Hi, I’m a goblin trapped in a gnome’s body.”
Emily: “Excuse me?”
Gnome: “Well you see, I played tricks on a fairy — and they turned me into a gnome. And I need your help to turn me back into a goblin again.”
Emily: “Okay, but why should I help you? What’s it got to do with me?”
Gnome: “Well if you help me, you get one wish!”
Emily: “Ah, that sounds good!…but what do I have to do?”
Gnome: “Well to help me, you need to do three challenges. The first challenge is to crack two eggs on your head.”
Emily: “Okay. That sounds a bit strange. But if you’re sure.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Emily: “I really don’t want to do this…..oh!…oh! Ulll!”

Emily: “I can’t believe you really made me do this! Now what’s the next challenge?”
Gnome: “Well, the second challenge is you need to pour a bowl of cold water on your head.”
Emily: “What? Are you sure? This is so stupid!”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Emily: “I hope this wish is worth it. Screammmmmmmmmmm!”

Emily: “First I crack an egg on my head. Then I pour water on myself. What’s the third challenge?”
Gnome: “Well, the third challenge is a bit easier: you need to run around the street with your womsey on.”
Emily: “What? That’s so embarrassing. And it’s the middle of the day. But fine.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Emily: “Now I’ve done all three challenges; do I get my wish?”
Gnome: “No. Of course you’ve not going to get your wish. That’s because I tricked you, I tricked you! Hahaha!”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Emily: “It was just a dream! There was no goblin after all! Phew!”
