| An unsuccessful variation
The Topper story is funny because it's terrifyingly serious. Images of the dead warn a man that his time is limited and that he's wasting what little there is of it.

In the TV series, Topper was a beaten-down man, his life colorless because he is becalmed somewhere between failure and success. In this new version, Topper is a great success in business and the point is that when you reach the top, there's nothing there for you. It's an interesting variation, but nobody seems to have found it a fruitful source of humor.
