PERHAPS THE MOST POPULARIS RUNNING A FUNERAL HOME,

AND WITH PEOPLE DYINGDAILY

FROM EVERYTHINGFROM HEART ATTACKS

TO COLLAPSINGDURING A STOCK PHOTO SHOOT,

THE FUNERAL BUSINESSHAS NEVER BEEN MORE PROFITABLE.

JUST ASK CANDY BOYD.

SHE'S BEEN RUNNINGBOYD FUNERAL HOME

IN LINWOOD, CALIFORNIA,FOR OVER 15 YEARS,

AND TODAY,I PAID HER A VISIT

WITH AN IDEA TO MAKEHER BUSINESS EVEN BETTER.

UNBEKNOWNST TO CANDY,I WENT BY THE NIGHT BEFORE

IN MY USUAL DISGUISETO SCOPE THINGS OUT,

BUT MY BEARDWAS COMING LOOSE,

SO I WAS TOO AFRAIDTO GO INSIDE,

SO I ENDED UP JUSTCHECKING OUT THEIR WEBSITE

TO LEARN MOREABOUT THE BUSINESS.

SO BASICALLY,YOUR BUSINESS IS DEATH.

- CORRECT. CORRECT.

- AND THAT MUST BEBITTERSWEET FOR YOU.

- I MUST SAY, IT IS.

- BITTER BECAUSE PEOPLE DIE...- RIGHT.

- AND SWEET...- RIGHT.

- BECAUSEYOU'RE MAKING MONEY.

- EXACTLY, EXACTLY.- SO IT'S HARD,

BECAUSE YOU MAYBE GET EXCITEDWHEN SOMEONE DIES.

- RIGHT, EXACTLY.- BECAUSE YOU'RE LIKE,

"I'M GONNA PROFIT FROM THIS..."- RIGHT, EXACTLY, EXACTLY.

- BUT IT'S SAD BECAUSE, "OH..."- EXACTLY, EXACTLY.

- THEY'RE, LIKE, LOSING.

- EXACTLY.- SO IT'S A BALANCE.

- IT'S A BALANCE.

- MONEY WAS CLEARLYIMPORTANT TO MRS. BOYD,

AND I SAW SHE WAS MISSING OUTON SOME PROFITABLE SERVICES

TO OFFER HER CUSTOMERS.

THE PLAN--I WANTED HERTO GIVE PEOPLE

THE OPTIONOF BUYING MORE FRIENDS.

- BUYING MORE FRIENDS?- BASICALLY,

WHEN YOU DIE,YOU WANT TO HAVE

A LOT OF PEOPLECOME TO YOUR FUNERAL,

BECAUSE IT SHOWSTHAT YOU'RE WELL-LIKED.

- CORRECT.- SO I THINK YOU SHOULD

GIVE PEOPLE THE OPTIONOF PAYING FOR ACTORS

TO BE FAMILY OR FRIENDSAT A FUNERAL.

- OH, I SEE, I SEE.- LIKE, TO FILL THE ROOM.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND?- YEAH.

- AND IT COULD BEA VERY PROFITABLE ADD-ON SERVICE

TO OFFER TO PEOPLE.- WELL, I MEAN,

IT IS PRETTY INTERESTING.I DON'T KNOW--

- I'D LOVE TO DEMONSTRATEFOR YOU WHAT IT MIGHT LOOK LIKE.

- OH, SURE. THAT'D BE GREAT.

-AND MAYBE THAT WOULDHELP SELL IT TO YOU.
