Anyway, sorry, the bum is smokin' hot. Everybody laughs as the terrible young actor points at the bum, grossed out, indicating that his hospital room requires Friday Night Lights. Surya interviews how, just as with every task, this is basically his entire job: "I've been on many different commercial sets," he tells us, but he has never before seen "this much footage" captured in this amount of time. "Amazing!" he says. So I think that what just happened was that Surya's vast experience of commercials and their filming has taught him that the amount of footage one shoots is directly proportional to the quality of the finished product. Or in other words, "Kelly! We're done! Did we win yet?" Then Nicole spots the executives in the back of the room, and finally becomes awesome.
"Cut! Time out, let's put the product in the background for recognition." Frank, not getting it as usual, is irritated and impatient and asking needless questions to intimidate her into backing off his task; she's too busy getting the prop in the shot and then shaking hands with the execs in a stage whisper. Good show, Nicole. That was awesome. And of course, Frank is like, "Um, we didn't need to do that, but it's so cute that Nicole thinks you should try to make an impression on the client. Girls are adorable." Meanwhile, Nicole's informing the room that this is a key shot, meaning that it's essential that "our" product be showcased. I mean... the sales gene, you know? No shame in that game. And honestly, it's the move Frankie Suits would have made if he'd thought of it. But instead he's gotta piss on it. They cut in a shot of Tim looking bemused, but I highly doubt that's genuinely what's going on there. There are two execs: the attractive female one is from [Friday Night Lights], while the nebbishy-cute other guy is with the advertising firm. They are adorable, separately and together. And man, boy howdy, do they like Nicole's sudden ojigi overload: "Big brownie points for that," the lady chuckles. Nicole heads back to the monitor to giggle and queer it up with Tim, and Frank's like, "As usual, I'm working terribly hard, and Tim and Nicole are in what I refer to privately as 'La-La Land.'" Whatever, Frank. Over it. "It's time to show I'm ready to be the next Apprentice." And what's most disappointing about all that is how he's precisely the opposite of correct: the sadness of this season is that the show is finally ready for Frank to be the next Apprentice.
