Synopsis
A man walks out of a bar and sees a beautiful redhead sitting in a convertible waiting for someone. He walks over and starts to talk to her. She tells him that she is waiting for an older wealthy man and asks him to leave but he refuses and gets in the car. She says 'Very well' and careens off. He becomes frightened and tells her to slow down and she does not. When he glances over at her, he screams, for he sees a skeleton that tells him he has stolen a blind date with Death as the car heads straight for the side of a mountain.
