To Get Rich Is Glorious

Four men have each individually gambled on the outcome of a boxing match which they watch on the television. Only one of them wins, leaving the other three to drown their sorrows by indulging in a pornographic video.
With the aids of the sounds from the television and through a series of close up expressions, the story is conveyed without the use of synch dialogue.

Cuatro hombres han apostado cada uno individualmente sobre el resultado de un combate de boxeo que verán en televisión. Sólo uno de ellos gana dejando a los otros tres que ahoguen sus penas.

La escena se ilustra con la ayuda de los sonidos de la televisión y una serie de primeros planos, la historia se cuenta sin utlizar diálogo sincronizado.
