I will be posting the official video up tomorrow ..... NOT! I was not invited to this non-event that did not happen.

No biggie, we got guys who go out and crash junker cars in the desert and light them on fire and leave them there... happens all the time here.

Next time, give me the Mariposa secret handshake so I can come shoot vid and enjoy spectacle. gracias
