Set in a ranch with a fence and a homestead, the opening shot depicts a girl who sidles up to cattle in a nap. Waking up with a sign of trouble, he finally finds her. Licking her lips with a jar of a sauce for beef dishes on her hands, she smiles and then runs after him, while he escapes furiously. The background music is a parody of “The Pink Panther Theme,” a famous composition by Henry Mancini as the soundtrack for a 1963 U.S. comedy movie “The Pink Panther.” Also, the title of this piece was quoted from a 1957 U.S. Western film “Gunfight at the O.K. Corral,” and thus it contains a various reference to American cinema.
