Hello, Welcome, You look very nice. We’re Big Hits and we’re on a mission.
You’ll learn SELF-IMPROVEMENT here with us tonight and you will COMPLETELY improve yourself. That way you can be better in the world. Are you ready? Because if you’re not you’re running out of TIME. We’re going to blast our hearts RIGHT OUT for you right here for you.
How do you feel? Do you feel FREE?
This one’s for you.
