Duct Tape Man and Side Kick Announcements Skit
Think ÒThe Red Green ShowÓ for this skit idea to do an announcement for an upcoming event. Wrap a jump suit, gloves, hard hat and boots in duct tape, or see web sites like http://www.ducttapefashion.com/ for duct tape apparel. You may either have something in youth group “accidentally” break each week, or you can use this stupid skit to sell a retreat or camp. For example, the bus ride: Duct Tape Man can explain how tough a bus ride can be and tape an assistant to the seat, a pillow to their head to sleep, a water bottle to their mouth, headphones to their head. He could help in future weeks with other aspects of camp needing tapeÉcar wash (hose, sponge, towel to assistant), old suitcase for packing, water skis, volleyball. One way that it can be done is that instead of fixing anything Duct Tape Man basically comes in and destroys what ever it is he is trying to fix Ñ but leaves a ton of duct tape all over it. You can also have a leader taunt him because he doesnÕt actually fix anything.
