Lou Has a Killer Idea

Lou Has a Killer Idea

Lou went to graduate school for business administration.

Lou knows how to administer business, and that’s what Lou does.

In fact, Lou’s a master at it. Says so right there on the wall.

But lately, everyone seems to want him to do more, be more creative, solve more problems.

Lou is really starting to resent people like Jack and Marla… until he has what he thinks is the killer idea.

See what Lou’s thinking in the fourth Lateral Action animated video:
