Storyboard Text

  • WALL STREET
  • lol who dressed these brokers, their wives?
  • October 29th, 1929 It's Monday in New York City. Jordan is headed to his first day of work, thinking the nonsense last week on the NYSE is over.
  • DOW -25%
  • NCIS -9%
  • sh*t
  • NASDAQ -13%
  • TBS -13%
  • S&P 500 -15%
  • Jordan is rocking a brand new suit for his first day on the job: a Burgundy tux with a bowtie. He looks good, feels good, and believes he's about to make Wall Street his b**ch.
  • Feeling on top of the world, Jordan waltzes into the office, avoiding eye contact with the lesser, not-as-well-dressed brokers and heads to his desk.
  • What a crappy first day. As soon as Jordan sat down at 9:01 AM, the market plummeted. 16,410,030 shares were traded in a single day.
  • After Black Tuesday, an average of 100,000 people were fired every week. Jordan included. His office emptied out and he was left to cry alone in his well-pressed suit.
  • Jordan walked around town aimlessly, wondering if Karma was real, wondering if he had it coming, wondering if he was more than just a suit. He had lost his job, and his pride. What good is a Burgundy tux if you don't have the swag to rock it?
