‘Tough Luck Brother Peanut Butter!’ That rhymes, more or less. But what does the title mean? Is this about peanut butter? Or about tough luck? Or perhaps both?
‘Quiet on the set! The camera is rolling… and.. …ACTION!’
What is that man there waving about? Oh yeah he’s calling for… APPLAUSE!
‘And now we switch to the other side of the world…Hello Josette, can you hear me? Oh brother peanut butter, what a bad connection. We’ll have to try it again later. In a moment, right after this… commercial break.’
In ‘Tough Luck Brother Peanut Butter!’ we find ourselves in a television studio, where we travel around the world with Josette La Cacahuette on her adventures, as she goes in search of the world’s most exceptional peanuts. A surprising and exciting trip. So don’t forget to bring your passport!
‘Tough Luck Brother Peanut Butter!’ is joyous performance about going after your dreams and trying to make them all come true. Not there yet? Oh brother! Justy take a deep breath and try, try again.
