SCRIPT

Shigeo Nagashima was a very popular baseball player in Japan in the 1960s and 70s. His nickname was Mister. Mister was known for his carelessness.

Nagashiama: Where is it? Where is it?
Man:      Mister, what are you looking for?
Nagashiama: I can’t find a key to my car.
Man:      Everybody, Mister can’t find a key to his car. Please help him look for it.

A few minutes later

Nagashiama:   Everybody, you don’t have to look for it any more. Come to think of it, I didn’t come here by car today.
