Josie and the Pussycats

Synopsis: For years, the record industries have inserted subliminal messages into music so that they can turn teenagers into brain dead zombies who do nothing but buy, buy, buy. And whenever the musician or band finds out the truth, the record company silences them to keep the truth from coming out. When the hot boy band DuJour discovers this, their manager, Wyatt Frame, under his evil, corrupt boss, Fiona, has the plane they are flying in crashed and him looking for a new band to use for their evil schemes. Enter Josie, the ditsy Melody, and the tough Valerie, from Josie and the Pussycats, a small band who wants to make it to the big time. When they are discovered by Wyatt, they give in and become big rock stars. But will they find out that they are just pawns for the record industry or will fame take them over?

Okay, look, I can't believe

that I'm actually here...

and that I'm gonna get

to see them in the flesh,

because, like, Dujour is

like my most favorite band

of all time!

Dujour!

I just want to touch them.

I don't care which one.

I don't care where.

I got all their trading cards

and all their CD's,

and all my gear is

from their clothing line,

Dujour Couture.

I mean, I straight-up love 'em,

only, you know, like brothers.

Oh, my God!

They're here!

We are here exclusive on

the tarmac as the band Dujour

heads off on their world tour.

A year ago, would you have

ever imagined number-one song,

number-one requested video?

We're number one with a bullet,

baby, comin'to you!

Marco, there's a lady up there...

"Marry me, Marco..."

with a wedding dress.

- Keep buyin' the records, baby!

- Can you send it back to

all the guys in the studio?

What's up, John?

- Marco!

All right, boys. We'll land

in Riverdale in half an hour.

Then on to the Riverdale

Rise and Shine show.

Afternoon in-store gig

at 8.00. Questions?

Yeah, Wyatt, how come

my limited-edition Coke can

has me with a goatee...

when everybody knows

I shaved into a soul patch for

the 'Don't Tell Your Papa' video?

This is wiggity-wack, Wyatt.

You're supposed to be

on top of this.

No, what's wiggity-wack

is your damn monkey.

Here we go with

the monkey again.

DJ D.J. with the monkey.

Yes, here we go again.

First it pooed on my incense.

Then it decided to poo

on my two little balls.

And then it pooed on my

picture of Swami Mukananda.

Will you please tell

this man that Dujour

means hygiene?

Maybe if you showed Dr. Zaius

the proper respect, Dr. Zaius

will stop showin' you the poo!

- Gentlemen...

- I'm gonna kill you!

Okay! Now, enough of this.

I'm gonna rip out

your heart!

Eye contact, hand.

Eye contact, hand.

We'll talk to Coke

about the cans...

and try and clean up

after the doctor, okay?

Okay?

- Yo, man, I'm sorry.

My bad.

- It's all good.

Wyatt?

Yes?

Could you maybe talk to Marco

about him always doing my face?

You remember in the What video

I established the... face?

Eversince then, everytime

you see Marco, he's doing

the... face, and it's mine.

You look at him on TRL.

"Hi, Carson."

Look at him on

the Kid's Choice Awards.

"This is ours. Thanks."

Then right here on the cover

of Seventeen magazine.

"Hi, little girl.

Beauty secrets?"

It's my face.

It's my face.

Travis, am I, uh...

doin' your face,

'cause... God forbid

I'd... do your face, 'cause

it's... such a good face.

- That's it!

- Boys, boys, boys.

- Hold it!

- Dujour means friendship.

Thank you, Les.

Now, listen to me.

Let's all take a moment.

When we land, I will

call the choreographer, and

she will give you a new face.

- Too bad your mama couldn't

give you a good face.

- Take that back right now!

- I'm sorry, Travis.

- Thank you.

You can have a new face too.

- Dujour means family.

- Dujour means teamwork.

Teamwork.

- So, how are we?

Are we good?

- Yeah.

- Are we happy?

- Happy.

- Are we dope?

- Word.

- Wicked.

- Yo, Wyatt, Wyatt, there was one more thing.

Yes?

Well, we were working

on some remixes of

the last single, right?

We heard like a really

strange background track.

We were wondering whether

or not you knew what

it was all about.

Gee. You know,

I have no idea what that was.

Where did it come from?

- I mean, Wyatt,

we just want some answers.

- The answers, I will provide.

I'll be right back.

Take the Chevy to the levee.

Whoa!

Whoa!

Hey, that guy in the parachute

looks just like Wyatt.

Oh, yeah?

Does he look like this?

Or like this?

- That's it.

- Break it up!

- Dujour means seat belts!

Dujour means

crash positions!

Looks like we need

to find a new band.

Thank you.

- Thank you, guys.

- Real nice.

Thanks for comin' out.

You're a great crowd.

Okay, girls.

We need the lane now...

and your shoes.

- So how'd we do?

- Twenty dollars... minus

five dollars shoe rental.

Fifteen dollars.

Each.

Five dollars.

All things considered,

I'd say this was

our best show yet.

We just need to

build a following.

Look, skanky had a rock show,

and nobody came.

Did you guys all coordinate

before you left the house,

or are you wearing

the same thing by accident?

At least we're not

wearing stupid bunny ears.

They're not bunny.

They're leopard.

And they're not stupid.

They're special.

- We're special.

- Yeah, special... ed.

Enjoy the gutters, Josie.

You'll be playing there forever.

Hey. Hey, come on.

Who's a rock star?

Who's a rock star?

I am.

That's right.

There you go.

Lookin' good, McCoy!

Alan M, what's...

What's goin' on?

Uh, the, uh, truck died.

Josie

#Did I bust the carburetor#

#Overload the alternator#

Jump in anytime.

- #Abused the accelerator#

- Nice.

You can't drive this uphill

when it's hot outside.

I told you.

You don't deserve

a truck this good.

You totally take it for granted.

#Takin' my truck for granted#

#She says I'm taking

my truck for granted#

Um, Jose?

Did, uh...

Did you ever want to tell

someone something, but...

but you weren't sure

if you should, you know?

Yeah.

'Cause you didn't know what

their reaction might be or if

it was the right thing to do?

You should tell them.

You should always tell them.

'Cause there's this guy at work,

and he just reeks, you know?

A guy?

Yeah.

- Smelly guy.
