Votes close at midnight on Sunday.
Probably superhero Wonder Woman, or a lifeguard from Baywatch – they’d be here to make me an offer I wouldn’t be able to refuse. In all seriousness, I think I’d be chased by Lightning McQueen from the Disney franchise Cars. We’re all just racing around trying to get things done in the fast-paced life of modern society. In that sense, we’re all cars; Lightning McQueen suddenly seems pretty human. We’re all just on a massive spring break road trip on the highway of life, zooming towards the brink of extinction.
I think the most interesting person to be chased by would be the actor Jackie Chan. It would be an epic chase in which I’m sprinting through the crowded Hong Kong street markets as the martial arts master leaps from rooftop to rooftop. The music would, of course, be the most intense soundtrack ever. I would somehow manage to slip away by hiding or deceiving Jackie Chan.
In reality, a chase scene like that wouldn’t be as cool as that, and would look more like a comedy than an action movie. I would probably spend the first few minutes trying to get over the fact I’m being chased by one of my favourite celebrities. Then, assuming he hadn’t caught me by then, I’d try to outrun him on ground, wrongly hoping he won’t be physically fit now he’s so much older. Then I would fall flat on my face, and knock myself out. I can’t say it would be a particularly exciting chase, or one that Jackie Chan would find challenging. I guess anyone chasing me would result in the same thing happening, but imagine how much more awesome it would be to be chased was Jackie Chan.
I would be chased by Voldemort from the Harry Potter series. You might wonder why – well, it’s because I would want to take a selfie with him. Picture this: a very pale, reckless man with no nose is running about on the streets, killing innocent people. I take my phone out and ask for a selfie. The lord of white bald heads who happens to be a part of the anti-nose society? Of course I’d want a selfie. I would get so many likes! He decides he doesn’t want the photo on Instagram (maybe he isn’t looking his best) and he chases after me. The Dark Lord of the wizarding world is chasing after me, so how do I solve it? By being smart. I call an otolaryngologist – a doctor who specialises in nose problems – and tell Voldemort. He’s so freaked out by the nose doctor, he runs away. Easy!
Picture yourself in the movie Jurassic World. There are giant dinosaurs all around you, and Chris Pratt is chasing you. Honestly, I’d want to stop running. I mean, have you seen Chris Pratt? Who in their right mind run away from him? I’d want to step out of the movie and go to his massive house, swim in his pool, and eat amazing food cooked by his chef. If I couldn’t do that, then I would fight alongside Chris Pratt, and put all of the dinosaurs back into their enclosures, thus saving everyone! Then, Chris Pratt would realise that he is in love with me, we’d marry, and I’d have a dinosaur as my ring bearer at the wedding. We’d all live happily ever after.
