[Electronic music plays throughout the video]

0.00:  A number of aliens are seated at computers inside an internet café. There is a poster in the café window that reads: ‘BEWARE! Your privacy is YOUR responsibility’.

0.00–0.05:  A green alien wearing a red waistcoat (Zoggel) enters the internet café and sits at one of the computers [Zoggel’s footsteps and a ‘spring’ noise can be heard as Zoggel jumps up a stair and enters the café. The chair squeaks when Zoggel sits down at the computer].

0.05–0.10:  Zoggel begins to log in to ‘Spacenet’ (a social networking website) on the computer. The computer screen reads: ‘Spacenet Login’. Zoggel types: ‘Zoggel’ [‘keyboard typing’ sounds can be heard].

0.10–0.15:  Zoggel’s computer screen changes and displays the following text: ‘Check your privacy settings?’ Two choices appear on the screen: ‘yes please’ and ‘not now’. Zoggel selects ‘not now’ [the computer makes a noise when Zoggel selects ‘not now’].

0.15–0.20:  The screen changes to Zoggel’s ‘status’ on Spacenet. The screen shows that Zoggel is typing: ‘Rang in sick — LOL!’ [keyboard typing’ sounds can be heard]. Zoggel’s eyes can be seen above the computer screen and the words ‘Rang in sick — LOL’ are floating above Zoggel’s head [Zoggel giggles]. 

0.20–0.23:  Zoggel continues to type– ‘Going to an interview for another BORING job now. Who cares? Off to Saturn next month!’ [‘keyboard typing’ sounds can be heard].

0.23–0.28: The scene changes to outside the internet café. Zoggel can be seen standing up inside the cafe, jumping through the door of the internet café and walking away [Zoggel’s footsteps and a ‘spring’ noise can be heard as Zoggel jumps down a stair and leaves the café]. Aliens in cars are seen in the background [the cars make a ‘whirring’ noise as they pass by].  As Zoggel leaves, a blue alien in a brown waistcoat appears around the corner of the internet café.

0.30–0.33:  The scene changes to Zoggel walking down the street and smiling. Zoggel’s personal information ‘Address — 23 Universe St’ and the words ‘Rang in sick again LOL!’ appear above Zoggel’s head.

0.33–0.37: The scene changes back to the internet café. The blue alien jumps through the door and sits down behind the computer that Zoggel was using [a ‘spring’ noise can be heard as the blue alien jumps up a stair and enters the café].

0.37–0.40:  Zoggel’s Spacenet status page is still open on the computer screen. The unidentified blue alien types the following words below Zoggel’s text on the Spacenet status page: ‘So bored – I hate working’ [‘keyboard typing’ sounds can be heard].

0.40–0.45:  The scene changes back to Zoggel walking down the street. The following words can be seen above Zoggel’s head: ‘So Bored — I Hate working’, ‘Address – 23 Universe St’, ‘Rang in sick again LOL!’, ‘D.O.B 26.09.2200’ and ‘Off to Saturn’.  An alien in a car passes and honks the car horn [a ‘honking’ noise can be heard]. Zoggel waves at the driver.

0.45–0.50:  The scene changes to show three multi-level buildings.  The picture pans down to the bottom of the buildings [a ‘sliding’ noise can be heard as the picture pans down]. Zoggel is walking towards the buildings. The words ‘Leaving for Saturn soon’ , ‘So bored – I hate working!’, ‘Rang in sick again Ha!’ are over his head. The words start floating into the windows of the middle building (representing that Zoggel is sharing this information with people in the building) [a ‘sliding’ noise can be heard as the words disappear].

0.50–0.54: Zoggel enters the lift at the bottom of the middle building. The lift doors close. Zoggel presses a button in the lift [a ‘ding’ sound can be heard when Zoggel presses a button in the lift] and the lift starts to move upward.

0.54–0.59:  The scene changes to an office inside the building. A yellow alien wearing a grey waist coat is sitting at a desk. The words ‘So bored – I hate working’, ‘Rang in sick again LOL!’ float through the window and ‘enter’ the yellow alien’s computer [‘Morse code’ sounds can be heard as the words float through the window].  The yellow alien looks surprised and then angry.

0.59–1.06:  Zoggel is seen walking towards a door. A sign ‘The Boss’ is shown on the wall next to the door.  Zoggel presses a button on the wall under the sign [a ‘honking’ noise can be heard as Zoggel presses the button], the door opens [a noise can be heard as the door opens] and Zoggel jumps through door [a ‘spring sound’ can be heard as Zoggel jumps through the door]. The door closes [a noise can be heard as the door closes].

1.06–1.10: Zoggel is seen walking towards the yellow alien (the boss) and the words are still streaming from the window to the boss’s computer [‘Morse code’ sounds can be heard as the words float through the window]. Zoggel is smiling and the yellow alien is frowning.  Zoggel realises his words are being seen by the boss, he stops [a ‘screech’ can be heard as Zoggel stops] and puts his hand to his mouth.

1.10–1.15:  The boss turns the computer screen so Zoggel can see it [a noise can be heard as the boss turns the computer screen and the music changes from a ‘happy’ to a ‘serious’ tone]. The computer screen is showing Zoggel’s Spacenet ‘status’ page. Zoggel can be seen peering around the side of the computer. Zoggel’s cheeks are red (showing embarrassment) and Zoggel’s fingers are trembling.  Zoggel and the boss can be seen looking at the messages on Zoggel’s Spacenet ‘status’ page:  ‘Rang in sick again — LOL!’, ‘Going to an interview for another BORING job now’, ‘Who cares? Off to Saturn next month!’. The page is also showing the message typed by the unidentified blue alien: ‘So bored – I hate working!’.

1.16–1.20:  The computer screen changes to show ‘Zoggels Pics’.  The first picture shows Zoggel standing and drinking with a bottle in each hand.  The next picture shows Zoggel on the ground drinking from a large pink glass at a party.  The next picture shows Zoggel upside down in a toilet.  The boss’s eyebrows are raised [a noise can be heard as the boss’s eyebrows are raised]. Zoggel disappears from view [a ‘zipping’ noise can be heard as Zoggel disappears, followed by a ‘crash’ noise].

1.20-1.26:  The scene changes to show Zoggel running away from the office, having crashed through the boss’s office door (a hole is left in the door that is the same shape as Zoggel).  Zoggel runs out of sight [the sound of footsteps can be heard] and the door swings open [a noise can be heard as the door closes].

1.27-1.38:  [The music changes] A purple screen appears with the following words: ‘How private is your profile?’ followed by ‘Take part in an international survey on social media and privacy’ and then ‘www.privacyawarenessweek.org’.
