Stephen: This is going to make a great show. Don’t forget Poppy has to go through the hoop. ‘Stephen & Ashlie TV’ – take one.
Ashlie: Stephen, it’s ‘Poppy TV’!
Stephen: Fine. ‘Stephen, Ashlie & Poppy TV’, take one… and action! And action. Ashlie, I said action!
Ashlie: Stephen, I don’t think she wants to do it. And I think you’re shouting too much.
Stephen: Poppy, if you want to be a star, you need to get into character.
Ashlie: I don’t think she understands. I know. What if we give her a treat, like a dog chocolate? Then you might want to go through the hoop.
Stephen: Great idea, have you got one?
Ashlie: Yeah. Here.
Stephen: Give it to me. Poppy, here’s your treat. You’re going to be the greatest dog star in the world.
Ashlie: I don’t think that’s going to work, Stephen.
Stephen: Of course it will. Stephen, Ashlie & Poppy TV, take two. Action!
Ashlie: I think you need to put her treat on the other side of the hoop.
Stephen: Good idea. Take three. Poppy! Action!
Stephen: [Groans] I’m sure great directors never have this much trouble. Never work with animals!
Ashlie: Aw, don’t listen to him, Poppy. You’ve been great. Stephen’s just being bossy.
Stephen: I’m not being bossy, I’m just trying to get the best performance out of Poppy. I’m trying to make her a star.
Ashlie: Well, as you’ve been working so hard as the director, I’ll edit the video and upload it to our new channel. Come on, let’s go home.
Stephen: I’m exhausted after all that directing. I’ve got a sore throat and I’ve got a stomach ache. It must be the stress.
Ashlie: Well, why don’t you have a nap while me and Poppy work on the new channel?
Stephen: That’s a good idea.
Ashlie: That’s it, Stephen. Wake up. I’ve uploaded our first video!
Stephen: Have you? That’s great.
Ashlie: Look, someone has posted a comment already.
Stephen: Really? Let’s have a look. Wow, it says, ‘really funny… smiley face’. That’s odd.
Ashlie: Look, Stephen, we’ve already got some ‘likes’. That’s amazing.
Stephen: I didn’t think it was funny, more like Poppy being clever. Can we see the video, Ash?
Ashlie: Oh, erm, yeah, of course. It wasn’t quite what we planned but… well, you’ll see.
Ashlie: Stephen, are you ready? Hi! Welcome to Poppy TV, I’m Ashlie and this is the adorable Poppy.
Ashlie: Look, Stephen, we’re a hit! We’ve got thousands of views already. We’re going to be famous!
