TREY: So they ride into the clearing here, and Errand Wolfe is singing this song about how much he hates Wilson and everything. Tela gets down and introduces herself... Uh, excuse me, introduces Colonel Forbin to Errand Wolfe. They start talking, and, you know, this guy’s okay. So, Errand Wolfe starts to tell Tela some bad news, and that’s that -- you see, they have this whole revolutionary group here, and they have people that are hooked up with Wilson’s regime and everything in order to help the -- Sorry, I’m just looking at this guy down here…

These people are in with Wilson’s regime, and the whole way that this revolution is happening is basically by people within, that work within the Wilson’s whole crew there. One of these guys is this guy named Mr. Palmer. Mr. Palmer is basically an accountant, financial guy. He’s been stealing funds from Wilson and shifting them to the revolutionaries in order to fund this whole revolution. The bad news is, of course, Wilson has just found out about this whole thing, and Mr. Palmer is about to get hung in the public square.

So, meanwhile here, these guys are thinking, we go to this public square and witness this hanging. Now, in this strange land, instead of a normal hangman, they have this sort of electronic hangman machine that comes out called the AC/DC Bag. It’s got a black bag over its head, and it’s kind of this robot thing here, rolling out on wheels. Mr. Palmer is standing there, the scaffolding up on the thing, with the noose is coming down around his neck, and Wilson is standing on the side. The Evil Wilson is looking at him. They get ready for the hanging here, and Wilson sings this little song to him.
