Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

Walmart reached our to four award-winning directors, gave them a receipt and said, tell a story.  
You are given a receipt with six items. 
The receipt becomes the clue. 
We wanted to embrace the randomness instead of fight against it.  
I'm very curious to see what they're making. 
Mine's gonna be the best though. 
I assume ours will be weirder than theirs.  
This is a competition, right? 
Yeah, we win a Walmart, right?
