This was the third serious try with this clip. It stumped me badly in the Spring and again in late Summer. I had all kinds of fruitless backstories for why the two guys were laughing and the one was not. I really wanted to tie in the locale…like they were waiting for the tide to go out so they could retrieve this guy’s car or something.
In the end, scrapping the locale idea and just going with some random funny premise to build on was what freed me from looking at this one for another hour.
