Secret Fact: I recorded this video in me office over a week ago and it’s been dormant in the content schedule. The relevancy of it has a whole new feel this week. Keep being legends and let’s celebrate being fucken decent to one another. Anyone spewing ignorance, bigotry, prejudice, judgement, and narrow minded-ness as acceptable or justified traits in the year of bloody 2020 can fuck right off. ❤️🍻 Spin doctors can fuck right off. This is a video of NICENESS. Inarguable, unflinching niceness. Absorb it.
