What the f***

you doing here?!

- What?

- What are you doing here?

The meeting was cancelled.

I just wanted...

The meeting was cancelled?

I bet you

cancelled the meeting!

We're ten days late, man!

We've got to be cranking!

We're two weeks

away from Magic

and you're f***ing wasting

your time right here!

I'm not wasting my time here.

What's the difference?

The difference is that

you're here to play,

I'm here to f***ing work!

Go to the office!

That's nice.

Look here.


Open your shoulder.

Yeah, that's nice.

Give him a little

kiss on the cheek.

You're selling

the American Dream.

I think it's good work.

- Thank you.

- Good work.

Creative aside,

there's another issue

I've got to talk

to you about.

We've got 2,000

billboards, 20 markets.

But we've gotta

close the deal today.

Amer, how you doing?

Good to see you again.

How you doing, man?

Good to see you.

Let me just kinda

break it down for us.

The nitty gritty of this is -

I've got three or four

of our other clients that are,

they're willing to pay

a little bit more money

than our current deal is.

But you're not gonna

let that happen.

I'm not gonna

let that happen.

We've already given you the

word, but what we need to see

is, uh, that you can

write that check today.

The check is

owed on Monday, man.

I've got the Frederick

Brothers on the line.

They're ready to go

to contract at 2.5...


I've got 220 retailers,

who are waiting

for this space right here.

If I don't have

the billboards,

they're not gonna

take my merchandise.

I got a client ready

to put down 2.5...

Five minutes.


I'm gonna pay today,

but I'm not-

I'm not happy

about it, man.

We have no choice.

May I show you this diamond?

How much is this?

Too much.

How much is this one?

This one is 110,000.

Also a bit too high.

Do you have

anything for 40?

She's turning 40 today

and I don't want to be corny,

but 40 would be

symbolic and right.

This might work for you.

This is $35,000.

It's emerald and diamonds.

- Can I see?

- Let me show it.

And the diamonds

around are real?


You can size it

to her finger?

- I've brought her wedding band.

- Perfect.

If you can be back

in a couple of hours,

because tonight is her birthday

and I don't wanna miss it.

Yeah, no problem.

- Thank you so much.

- You're welcome.

This is crazy.

Amer's gonna

completely freak out.

There's no way

he's gonna sign this.

Listen, I'm...

Freak about what?

They want a

creative control provision.

He likes to pull jokes

on me all the time.

- Show me this.

- Amer, listen.

They... they changed it.

Man, what are

you doing?

I thought it was finished.

I thought it was done.

I... I tried to call you.

I tried to...

Man, you're

f***ing full of sh*t.

You're kidding me.

Please don't do that.

You know, man, I'm gonna pop.

It's a bad day to do

sh*t like this on me.

Bad day.

Mr. Atrash.

- I'm Amer Atrash.

- I'm Gordon.

I represent the

board of directors.

Man, you guys are

f***ing pulling a fast one

on me right here.

Look, we wanna be

in business with you.

If all goes well, we're gonna

be in business by Monday.

We are in business

already today!

Well, there's just

one little thing.

There's no other thing!

- The board of directors...

- The board of directors?

...who I represent.

With all respect, sir.

You know, this is a done deal.

This man has introduced

this situation as...

Well, there was one element

that wasn't in the contract.

You're the creative person,

but just for legal purposes

we need to say
