Midas and Pactolo are rival rappers. At a show, Midas comes down with a cold and cannot carry on singing. This leaves his rival to take all the glory. He wishes that it was he who was famous. However, things don't turn out as Midas planned and soon everything he touches turns to gold - in a negative way.

Before listening to the Spanish, pupils could watch the story without the sound and try to work out what is happening in the story. Pupils could then be given a piece of gold coloured paper that they should hold up every time they hear the word 'oro' in the story. This could then be developed into a conversation about whether or not it's a good thing being able to turn things to gold by touching them.
