Clay forces everybody -- everybody in the Price Is Right, floral-printed, muu-muu wearing, toupeed, spider-veined, poorly-made-up audience of tourists -- to give a big "Howdy!" and raise their hands if they've ever had a crush on someone in the their office. This, my friends, is a recipe for comedy, but not necessarily for forging a connection with their audience, because the candidates are almost uniformly beautiful, and the last thing I want is to talk about my sexual aspirations with a TV-looking person. Especially with cameras literally everywhere. I can't even handle a hot x-ray technician. The most vociferous respondents are the ones without a chance in hell, and everyone looks kind of horrified. Carolyn does the Connecticut Slow Burn I love so much.
We get interview from Carolyn about how she doesn't even know what the hell they're talking about: is it a good idea to have sex in the workplace? A bad idea? "It's funny," she admits, "but it isn't educational." Alla takes the mic and is, of course, smooth as silk, all about how they're not going to be judging anyone, but just talking about how to address uncomfortable situations in the work environment. On the one hand, props for actually giving people something to hang onto, as far as a point to all this. But pans for not making that clear to anyone on your team. Carolyn's still going crazy with her the hell? faces, and fucking Markus takes out a yo-yo. Now, I would have stuck him front and center and given him free rein for five minutes, and gone to sleep happy with the fact that none of those people were ever going to have sex again because they'd all be in comas, but I can appreciate them sidelining him for the actual presentation, because God knows what that guy would come up with. No, because even God would be like, "Shut this dude UP."
