It is night. We are in a town with a palace looming overhead. A short man jumps off a camel.
"Ah! Good evening to you worthy friend! Please! Please! Come closer!"
The camera focuses in on his face… a bit too much.
"Too close! A little too close!"
The man pulls away from the camera.
"There! Welcome to Agrabah! City of Mystery, of enchantment… andthefinestmerchandisethissideofthetown on sale today! Come on down!" the man rapidly says, quickly setting up a sales booth. He pulls an object down.
"Look at this! Yes, combination hookah and coffee maker! Also make Julian fries. It will not break! It will not... it broke." He throws the device away and pulls out a box.
"Oh! Look at this! I have never seen one of these intact before. This is the famous Dead Sea Tupperware. Listen! Plbt! Ah! Still good."
The camera starts to move away. The man steps in front of it, frantically waving his hands.
"Wait, don't go! I can see that you're only interested in the exceptionally rare. I think then you would be most rewarded to consider… this!" he said, pulling a lamp from his sleeve.
"Do not be fooled by its common place appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts."
The camera slowly starts moving away. The man jumps in front of it again.
"This is no ordinary lamp! It once changed the course of a young man's life. A young man, who like this lamp, is more than what he seemed."
The man's eyes darts around, before he leans in.
"A diamond in the rough. Perhaps you would like to hear the tale?"
He pours sparkly stuff out of the lamp and throws it in the air.
"The story is about a boy and a princess, who fall in love. But… it is also about… the princess's friend, who is a genie, and how she fell in love as well."
