Radio ad transcript
Narrator: In an ancient land, before time or sundials, it was time for a hero. This fall, prepare to believe all over again, once more, again. Dragon Brain - prepare to believe.
Woman: It’s a time before time. Oh no, here come the fucking dragons!
Man: We need a hero, or evil will reign for 2,000 generations, and a million orcs will storm these lands, and the CGI bill will be apocalyptic!
Narrator: Dragon Brain - prepare to love.
Hero: I’m only a humble blacksmith with a California accent. How can I possibly rise up and conquer evil without a montage?
Guy: How indeed? Do we believe?
Hero: I believe, in the miracle of merchandising! I’ll need a furry talking sidekick to spew one-liners while I chop off heads!
Sidekick: (sound of decapitation) Don’t lose your head! Hehehe!
Guy: We shall spill goo out of this drill.
Narrator: Prepare to sit, through a four hour journey.
Hero: I’ve got a quest: I must defeat evil and sell franchising rights to theme parks.
Woman: We’re cursed! The dragons! They're flying upside down!
Hero: No! The CG machine is broken again! (yelling) DRAGON BRAIN!
Narrator: The quest is yours: Dragon Brain, coming soon to a theater near you. Rated "G" for gibberish.
