(Reed is pressing buttons on the camera off-screen)

Reed: Okay, red light's on. (breathes) Here we go. Hello. (rubs eyes) I thought that I would let you know whats...uh... goin' on. Because (picks at fingernails) I am really (bites fingernail) Interesting. (laughs) I'm just kidding. (laughs) Let's get started. I have actually been wanting to post one of these for a while now. (looks at watch) Now seems like a good time. So here we are. (close up) Bahhh.... (back to normal focus) I don't like to mince words. I don't like to mince anything. Actually. Mincing is actually really gross (makes face) it makes me think of a book. The Jungle. People were, like, minced. Cut up into meat. Mincing is not cool. Just say no to mincing.

(Camera swerves, reveals Reed wearing a large fake mustache, beard, and baret, and talking in a different voice)

Reed with Mustache: Stop babbling! Get to the brass tax! (swerve)

Reed: Brass tax? Are you-what are you, my dad? (swerve)

Reed with Mustache: Would you like me to be? (swerve)

Reed: No, no, actually, that's okay. (to camera) I should probably start with my name. I know you're all on pins and needles to know it. My name is Reed. (swerve)

Reed with Mustache: Wait. Reed? That's it?

Reed: What do you mean 'That's it'?. Reed is an awesome name; My name rocks. Think of all the puns you can make with Reed (pause). No, it's not short for anything. Like Reedrick. And I've been living in Chicago for about a year now. I like the hustle and bustle - the to and fro - people coming and going. I'm definitely a people-watcher. I like to observe. Make comments. I'm actually working on my first rant right now. And I've got a friend whose going to, like, design a really cool logo. I was going to the university. I decided to take a break. I guess you could say that I'm easily distract- (Cut to Reed looking at a disco ball) Oooo.... Pretty. (Cut back) -ted. So-I-uh-eh-I'll be back with my first rant real soon. And we'll see you then. (swerve)

Reed with Mustache: Okay. Bye-e! (Beard falls off) (swerve)

Reed: (pauses, and in a whisper) I don't-I don't know what that is. (Reaches to shut off camera)
