DISCO MAN

PETE


EXT. DARK ALLEYWAY - NIGHT


PETE stands outside a metal door smoking a cigarette. He has on a dirty apron and tired eyes. PETE lets out a large sigh and checks his phone.


PETE

Three more hours. You can do it.


PETE lets his cig fall onto the ground. He crunches it with his worn-out shoes.


As PETE goes to open the door, DISCO MAN is heard shuffling down the alley. PETE looks up.


PETE

Fuck. Another drunk.


PETE watches the alley for a second.


PETE

Go home!


Suddenly, a man emerges in a complete disco. He is covered head to toe in little mirrors and he illuminates under the street lamp.


PETE

What the hell.


DISCO

Hello.


PETE

Um. Okay, I’m not doing this tonight.

PETE opens up the door. DISCO MAN runs straight at PETE and slams the door shut.


DISCO

Not until we dance.


PETE

I’m not going to dance, weirdo.

DISCO MAN pulls out a little flashlight of his pocket and holds it up to PETES neck like a knife.


DISCO

Dance or die.


PETE

(scared)

Okay, okay, man. Just put that thing down.


DISCO MAN slowly takes the flashlight away from PETES neck. He turns it on. He flashes it against his body.


DISCO

Oh YEAAAHHHHHH!


DISCO MAN starts to dance. PETE dances timidly and with great fear.

DISCO

(off-pitch)

YOU ARE THE DANCING QUEEN. YOUNG AND SWEET. ONLY SEVENTEEN.


DISCO MAN stops singing.


DISCO

SING!


PETE

(crying)

Dancing queen. Feel the beat from the tambourine, oh yeah. You can dance


BOTH

YOU CAN JIVE. HAVING THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE.


They both stop. DISCO MAN looks intensly into the dark.


DISCO

It is time I go.


PETE

Okay, man, just please, don’t hurt me.


DISCO MAN looks at PETE sternly then nods his head in agreement. He starts to do a heroic walk away. Once DISCO MAN is back into the pitch dark of the alley, PETE bends over and tries to breathe.


PETE

Oh god.


DISCO MAN comes storming back up to PETE from the dark with a knife. He swiftly stabs him in the side. DISCO MAN runs off again.

DISCO

(running into the dark again)

OOH, SEE THAT GIRL. WATCH THAT SCENE. DIGGING THE DANCING QUEEN.
