Our company has a new strategic initiative to increase market penetration, maximize brand loyalty and enhance intangible assets in pursuit of these objectives.

We start a new project for to require seven red lines, I understand your company can help us in this matter.

Of course, water here will be the project manager water.

We can do this come.

(Video) The Expert (Short Comedy Sketch)

We yes, of course, Anderson here is our expert on all matters related to the drawing red lines.

We've brought him along today to share his professional opinion, nice to meet you.

Well, you all know me, this is Justine, our company's design specialist.


We need you to draw seven red lines.

All of them is strictly perpendicular some with green ink and somewhat transparent.

Can you do that? No I'm afraid let's not rush into any hasty answers Anderson.

The task has been set it needs to be carried out at the end of the day.

You are an expert the term red line implies the color of the line to be red to draw a red line with green ink is well if it's not exactly impossible it's, pretty close to being impossible.

What does that even mean impossible it's possible? There are some people say suffering from colorblindness for whom the color of the lines doesn't really make a difference, but I'm, quite sure that the target audience of your project doesn't consist, solely of such people.

This is possible, I'll simplify line as such can be drawn with absolutely any ink.

But if you want to get a red line, you need to use red ink.

Why don't we draw them with blue ink? It still won't work.

If you use blue ink, you'll, get blue lines.

And what exactly did? You mean, when you talked about the transparent, mmm, how does it explain I'm? Sure, you know what transparent means? Yes, I do.

And what a red line means I hope I don't need to explain to you what you need to draw a red line with transparent ink.

(Video) The Expert: Progress Meeting (Short Comedy Sketch)

Do you describe? What do you? Imagine the end result would look like come on Anderson.

What do we got here? Kindergarden let's, not waste our time with these unproductive quarrels.

The task has been set the task is plain and clear.

Now if you have any specific questions, then go ahead, you only answer that here, oh, right, let's, leave aside the color for the moment you had something there also relating to perpendicularity seven lines all strictly perpendicular - what - everything amongst themselves.

I assumed, you know what - Papa take your lines alike.

Of course, he does he's an expert two lines can be perpendicular.

All seven can be simultaneously perpendicular to each other.

Oh I'll show you.

This is a line right? Yes.

And another is it perpendicular to the first line? Well, yes, it is perpendicular exactly wait, wait I'm, not done.

And a third one is it perpendicular to the first line? Yes, it is, but it doesn't cross the second line they're, both parallel not perpendicular suppose.

So there it is two lines can be perfect.

No in the pen.

How about this? This is a triangle.

It's, definitely not perpendicular lines and they're three, not seven why they blue indeed, it was that myself that's.

The problem your lines are blue, draw them with red ink.

(Video) The Expert: Wrong Angle (Short Comedy Sketch)

It won't solve the problem, but how do you know before you've tried let's, draw them with red ink.

Then let's see, hmm, I, don't ever repent with me, but I'm completely certain that with red ink.

The result will still be the same didn't.

You tell us early did you could only draw red lines with red ink down here.

And now you want to draw them with blue ink that you want us to call these red lines.

You know, you you're not talking about the color now right you're talking about that.

And what do you call it a perpendicular? What exactly is stopping us from doing this geometry just ignore it.

We have a tusk, seven red lines, it's, not twenty it's just seven.

And as I understand you're, a specialist of a narrow field, you don't see the overall picture, but surely it's, not a difficult task to draw some seven lines exactly suggest a solution without any fool can criticize no offense, but you're an expert, and you should know better.

Okay, let me draw you two perfectly perpendicular red lines and I will draw the rest with transparent.

Ink they'll, be invisible.

But I'll draw them.

Would this suit us? Yes, this will suit us.


But at least a couple with green ink.

Oh and I have another question if I may can you draw one of the lines in the form of a kitten, one in the form of a kittens market research tells us our users like cute animals.

(Video) The Expert: IT Support (Short Comedy Sketch)

It would be really great.

If we didn't know, but why look I can, of course, draw you a cat.

No artist I can give it a try, but it won't be a line anymore.

It'll be a cat, a line in a cat.

These are two different things, a kitten, not a cat kitten, their little cute cuddly cats.

On the other hand, I won't, make a difference.

I understand at least hit her out.

She doesn't, even finish speaking and you're ready, saying, no I got the idea, but it's impossible to draw a line in the form of a cat turn.

What about a bird.

So where do we stop? What are we doing? Seven red lines are two with red ink, two with green ink and the rest with transparent did I understand correctly.

Yes, excellent, in which case, that's, everything, right, oh, I almost forgot.

We also have a red balloon.

Do you know if you could inflate it? What do I have to do with balloons it's red, Anderson can you or can you not do this a simple question? Guess such I can of course, but excellent, organize a business trip, we'll cover the expenses go over to their location inflate the balloon.

Well, this is very productive.

Thank you.

All can I ask you one more question, please, when you inflate the balloon, could you do it in the form of a kitten? Of course, I can I can do anything I can do absolutely anything I'm an expert.
