Allie Scarlett Mark Jacques

A: That was a great concert last night, Scarlett.

S: Thanks.

A: As we know, Scarlett’s got a new CD coming out soon. So let’s have a look at the best way we can promote it in France.

M: OK, well… I think Scarlett should visit the major music stores. In my opinion, that’s the best way to meet her fans.

A: I’m not so sure. What do you think, Jacques?

J: Actually, I don’t agree with Mark. Scarlett isn’t commercial in that way.

A: Scarlett? Scarlett?

S: I agree with Jacques. I don’t have a commercial image. It isn’t my style.

M: OK, but Scarlett needs more publicity. What about a series of TV and radio interviews? Don’t you agree?

A: Yes, but that’s what everybody does. What we want is something different.

J: Personally, I think Scarlett should tour clubs and summer festivals. She can DJ, play her favourite music, play the new CD, and meet her fans, too.

A: Yes, absolutely. That’s a much better idea. Mark?

M: OK, why not?

A: Scarlett?

S: I think… That’s a great idea. Thank you, Jacques.
