Media: If you look up my name there is a really horrible video of me from when I entered Bols Around The World years ago. My buddies were really into film and wanted it to be all “artistic”. Its horrible, I looks horrible, the drink is horrible, You should probably watch it, but I won’t give you the ease of clicking a link.
