Briefing.

This is a conversation between my writer and an account manager:

AM: Hey writer, we have a task brief for you, if you have the capacity to do it...
W: .. yea should be alright, what's it about?
AM: It's a radio ad. But we're not making it.
W: What?
AM: I mean, we just need to write the script, so SBS can record it.
W: Oh, why is that?
AM: Because they need to get it translated to Macedonian first.
W: What?
AM: The client wanted to translate it to a foreign language, and for some reason they've chosen Macedonia.
W: ......
AM: So can you still do it? Thanks.
