In the drive-in movie theatre a young man is frustrated with his girlfriend’s lack of attention. She’s more interested in the guy on the big screen. Inspired by a swig of V, he changes the radio station to play a song to inspire the old couple in the next car. The resulting chain reaction leads to fireworks and rocking cars in the parking lot.

Animation was directed by Wilfrid Brimo via Wanda Productions, Paris.
