Smart Chip: Welcome to Chips Money Tips. I’m Chip Chinery.
(Dumb Chip in hoody walks in)
Dumb Chip: (childlike mocking) Welcome to ChipsMoneyTips I’m Chip Chinery.
Smart Chip: Ooooh good. Look who it is. It’s the part of me who doesn’t want to be bothered with …
Dumb Chip: Piddly stuff…
Smart Chip: Piddly stuff. That’s right. No time to save a buck.
Dumb Chip: No time. Too much work!
Smart Chip. Right. And where were you?
Dumb Chip: At the movies. Just saw The Social Network. Why don’t you come up with a website like that – instead of (unintelligible mocking) “I’m ChipsMoneyTips. Here’s how you save a nickel on a bag of frozen peas, blah blah blah…”
Smart Chip. (ignoring) Very funny.
Dumb Chip: I’m glad you liked it.
Smart Chip. Today, I’m gonna to tell you about AutoSlash…
Dumb Chip: I’m outta here! I don’t have time for this…
(Dumb Chip storms out.)
Smart Chip: Riiiiiight. Verrrry busy. (Back to camera) If you need to rent a car, you should check out AutoSlash.com
(VO & go to screen capture of website). They get you the lowest rate possible for a rental car, then send you an email alert if an even lower rate becomes available.
Maybe you’ve already booked a rental car through another company or an online website. Evenso, head to AutoSlash and plug in your info. Reason being, they’ve got a super computer that constantly checks rates for the dates and times you already have reserved elsewhere, then emails you if they found a better deal.
(Dumb Chip walks back in, with a spoon, eating from a bag of frozen peas)
Dumb Chip: Ah, that sounds good, but I’m still too busy. (eats spoonful of peas)
Smart Chip: (looks at Dumb Chip eating the peas. Beat). Really.
Dumb Chip: I’m outta here!
(Dumb Chip storms out)
Smart Chip: I booked my rental elsewhere, then found out about AutoSlash.
I entered my info at AutoSlash.com, and a few hours later I got an email saying they could save me $65.51 – with a link to that less expensive reservation, with all my same dates, times, and preferences. Four weeks later, I got another email from AutoSlash that said my new rental car place just dropped my rate $7.58 and I got that lower rate without doing anything. So far, AutoSlash saved me, for my four-day rental alone, a grand total of $73.09.
(Dumb Chip comes back in, still with the spoon and peas – sits back down)
Dumb Chip: Wait, you saved 73 bones.
Smart Chip: Yes, that’s right. I saved seventy-five bones.
Dumb Chip: That is a lot frozen peas.
