SHAME GHOST: PILOT DRAFT 1.2
KENNY SIDES

***IMPORTANT SCENE INFORMATION********
SYNOPSIS: Kenny wants to join a gang. Nacho, representing the East Side Hoods, gives Kenny a supposedly “haunted” Playboy- esque magazine (twenty years earlier a convenience store clerk was shot and killed, the bullet landing in the magazine). Kenny’s gang initiation is that he must masturbate to the cursed magazine on the anniversary of the clerk’s death.

There is absolutely NO NUDITY / NO SEXUAL ACTS involved in the film. The “masturbation” takes place underneath a blanket and is played comedically (think American Pie meets Ghostbusters).
The character of Nacho is not in the room with Kenny. Nacho supervises from a laptop webcam.
****************************************
INT. BEDROOM - NIGHT
Kenny sits on his bed staring at a TRASH CAN. He pulls out the discarded issue of Play-Jugs.
The green LED CLOCK reads 11:58.
A LAPTOP screen turns on. Kenny clicks an icon on a chat window. Nacho appears on screen, snacking on a SLIM-JIM.

NACHO
I thought you were gonna chicken-
out, holmes!

KENNY No. I'm ready.

NACHO
You better be. A pervy chancho like
you won't get no chicks if you're not repping the streets.

Kenny is embarrassed. Nacho realizes he went too far.

NACHO (CONT’D)
You can do it, ese. But you got to
hurry, it's almost midnight!

Kenny grabs the magazine. He unbuckles his pants.

NACHO (CONT’D) Whoa! Whoa! Put a blanket over
yourself! I'm no joto.

Kenny covers himself. He looks at the 80s girl's face. He slowly whacks under the blanket. He's having trouble.

NACHO (CONT’D) Hurry, bro.

KENNY
It's tough to do. It's just a still
picture.

NACHO
Use your imagination. That's half
the fun!

Kenny looks at the girl again. He closes his eyes. He quickens his pace.
A smile grows on his face.

KENNY
It's working. This is awesome! I'm
almost there.

NACHO
Good to hear. Just ignore that
ghost.

KENNY Ghost?!

Kenny opens his eyes. A GHOST, basically a sheet with holes cut out, floats next to him. Nacho is highly entertained.

NACHO
Yeah holmes. I told you that
magazine was haunted!

GHOST Whooooooo!

KENNY
Holy crap! Holy shitballs! Holy...
Is it whacking off?

The ghost is clearly whacking off to Play-Jugs.

NACHO
Yeah. It's kinda a perv. You need
to finish!

KENNY
Jesus Christ, I can't!

NACHO
Better hurry. Remember, he was shot
at the stroke of midnight, but didn't die for 3 minutes. If you don't squeeze one out by then ese, he'll curse you for a whole year!

Kenny looks at the clock. It reads 12:01.

KENNY Ahhhh!

GHOST Whoooo! Whooooo!

Kenny masturbates fast. He mutters to himself

KENNY
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord
is with thee.

The Play-Jugs magazine shoots out of Kenny's hand. The ghost descends on Kenny.

GHOST Whooooo!

KENNY
Oh my god! What do I do?!
