Let's get this party started!!!

********************************************

(camera pans over whole crowd}
{MC Hammer's 'U Can't Touch This' instrumental blaring from the speakers}



Announcer: tpir04, come on down!!!


JhayPrice, come on down!!!


LiteBulb88, come on down!!!


and JayC, come on down!!!


You are the first four contestants on the Price is Right!!!


{loud cheers}

And now your host, who still has a cassette player in their car, 123123123!!!


{enters from crowd, waving to all}
{Manuela hands over mic}


1233: Such a lovely welcome, thank you all. I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly we are going to have a great show today.

The term "throwback" is a pretty blanket statement, so don't be surprised if we bounce around from era to era.  :-)

With all that, let's make like Marvin Gaye and get it on with the first prize up for bids.


{platform descends from roof}

 
Announcer: Dropping from the ceiling is a digitizing box set!!!



Time to bring you memories to the 21st century with the help of Kodak!!! You can fill this box with up to 20 VHS tapes or 20 films for the photo geniuses at Kodak to carefully curate a digital scrapbook containing your homemade videos and stills. All your original keepsakes will be returned to you, and you will receive a thumb drive and digital code to relive your modern day memories. From Kodak, make very moment a Kodak moment!!!


{applause}

1233: Oh my goodness, that was a sponsered plug. Someone actually wanted to advertise here!?! Crazy.

The bidding will start with JayC

1233: The bids are in and the cost of digitizing your childhood is...




...so come on up, JhayPrice!!!!

{loud cheers}

It can sometimes be a challenge trying to balance modern prizes in a vintage show.

But trust me when I say we got it figured out for the first game of the day. Tell 'em, Mr. Announcer!!



Announcer: This definitely doesn't happen everyday, but you have a chance to share up to...





{Amber and Rachel reveal banner}




...$30,000 in cold, card cash playing the Phone Home Game!!!

{loud cheers and applause from the crowd}




1233: Yes sir, we went from me forgetting it existed in our last show to having it be the first game played on the very next show. A bit impulsive, but I digress. 

Now let's call the home contestant that is going to help you win this money. Normally, we would call before the show, but putting people on hold is rude.

{pulls out cell phone, dials mystery number}





ring, ring...





{gamesurf's phone goes off in the crowd}


Well, well, well. It seems that our "home" contestant is already here in the audience. Let's give a big cheer for gamesurf!!!!

{applause while being escorted backstage}

While they get all situated backstage, let's hear about the the groceries in the game today.



Announcer: First, we have a 35 pound tub of scented cat litter for your fat cat needs.
 
Then a 5 oz bag of vegan, gluten-free, flavor-free, lightly salted plantain chips.

Next this 12 oz squeeze bottle of white chocolate sauce is only for the most cultured of chocolatiers

For when you want to fry like an egg in the sun, we have a 6 oz bottle of suntan lotion.

Next is a 10 count box of 2 oz bottles filled with washable paint made specifically for your white walls.

Followed by a 12 oz bottle of liquid zzzQuil, America's go-to knockout medicine.

And finally is a 8 count box of the only palatable flavor of Pop Tarts. If you disagree, you're simply wrong

There they are, Numbers!


{applause}

1233: When I hand you this phone, you will be talking with gamesurf at "home". They might want to have a conversation, make small talk, etc and I can't stop that. But they will eventually give you a single price. Your job is to match that price with its proper product. We will repeat this process two more times afterwards.

At the end of three products, you will win a cash prize for each correct guess. Behind two products is $200, another two have $1,000, one has $4,000, one has $6,000 and the final prize has $20,000 attached to it! You can both win a lot of cash, so try your best!

{loud cheers}
{talking on phone to gamesurf} 

Now gamesurf, you can say whatever you want, but if you say or hint about a product or a different price, the turn is void and you will get stern looks from the whole backstage crew.  :-)

I'm handing the phone over to JhayPrice now, so whenever you're ready, give us a price!

{hands phone over}

*JhayPrice, when a price is posted, you are free to give a guess in case you are here before me
*gamesurf, please don't give another price until I reveal the previous result

Hello? Hello? Hello! Hi, 123! Hi, JhayPrice!

Wow, this is a dream come true to play this game!

The Phone Home Game, but I wanna play from home, cause social distancing

The first price to match will be $8.09.

Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

1233: When we replaced our security team with a single turnstile to abide by social distancing rules.  :-)

Anyways, is the cat litter $8.09?



{opens panel}




{buzz}

No dice, the sleep aid was the $8.09 product.

Shake it off, you have two more cracks at it.

gamesurf, the cat litter and sleep aid are off the board. Another price please.
