Hey, hey, Tuck, dude.

- Okay, we're rolling.

- Okay, hold on.

B-Before you go,

look-look at my coat.

- It's cool, huh?

- What is that?

Can we do another take

with it on, though?

No.

Okay.

-(clears throat)

- TUCK:
Ready when you are.

(sniffs)

Okay. How do I smell?

Or I mean, look, or you know?

Yeah, you can't smell a video.

Okay.

(clears throat)

- Ruckus, dude, you got to get out of here.

-(barks)

Hi, I'm Reginald.

I don't really get friends much,

but it's probably because

I'm a bit of...

an acquired taste.

That's what my mom says.

And I'm sure whatever school

I'm forced to go to

no one will acquire it.

So...

thanks for paving

a road over, really,

the only place I've

ever had any real friends.

Okay, we good?

- TUCK:
Uh, say your name.

- I thought you knew my name.

You know what I mean;

for the video.

Dude, we've been hanging out

for years.

- Come on.

- Dude, stop fronting. Just tell the camera.

You're upset, right?

You don't want to move.

TUCK (voice-over):

I've never gone a day

without seeing my friends.

They're, like, the only people

in the world who get me.

And now it's just all over,

you know?

Good luck finding that again.

So wherever-wherever

Munch is going, man...

Look, you people listen to me,

all right?

He's-he's a really good kid.

So don't just assume

that he's weird and that's it.

And Alex,

man...

He's a foster kid.

He's been moved all over.

I mean, it's like, why do you

have to build a freeway right through?

You know, can't you just

go around or something?

You're going along

feeling like

your own person

with your own friends,

and then something

like this comes along...

...that you have

no power to stop...

...because you're just a kid.

(scoffs)

You're just a kid.

(phone rings)

Yeah, hey, man.

(sniffs)

Yeah, yeah, I'm up, I'm up.

Whoa, whoa, man, slow down.

What's the problem?

Yeah, my-my phone's good. Why?

What happened?

- Wait, what?

-(click)

(voice-over):

This is when everything

started to change.

So, being me,

I kept filming.

I'm Tuck.

What you're about to see

happened to me

and my best friends

one year ago.

This is the story

of our last week together.

-(static buzzes, crackles)

- Phones all over

our neighborhood

are freaking out.

We've done everything we could

possibly do with this phone.

We threw it at the wall,

we took it to the phone guy,

we took it to the store

where we got it from,

and they say it's a problem.

So you know it's serious.

It looks like your phone

basically barfed on the screen.

- What happened?

- I don't know.

I was just eating dinner,

and all of a sudden,

all the phones in the house

just did this.

At exactly the same time.

Dude.

- What? It's freaky.

-(phone rings)

- De hello?

- Hey, Alex.

Oh, Munch, you're outside.

MUNCH:
Get over here, over here,

down the street.

TUCK:
Ask him if

his phone barfed yet.

ALEX:

Did your phone barf yet?

- Phones are still working.

- ALEX:
Cool.

Keep going, and we'll meet you

in the backyard.

Okay, copy that.

I'll take swift steps.

TUCK (voice-over):

When I look back at that day,

I realize the clues

were all around us.

(chuckles)

We had no idea.

Dude, they all still work.

See? (panting)

Dude, you know if

this whole thing works,

-these phones are done.

- No, I know.

- I have 14 spares; it's okay.

-(phone chirps)

-(scoffs) I bet you do.

- Okay.

All right, anyways,

let's spread out.

- Okay.

- Alex, go by the gate.

Munch, go on the far end,

- Yeah, I got it.

-and I'll stay right here by my camera.

- Just watch out!
