While that ruby had. Did you see the -- -- -- view coming I was I think is somebody to get a courtside it was of mine.

Align yourself with the product how did you come up with your strategy to kind of be able to market yourself. Me to be -- it to do what an early start. On. I think eat eat eat a marquee.

You know people really appreciate someone don't beat themselves bring autos and light. Well think about you it relates. What I come from and that type of person. They can also appreciate so. Camille when it started it was due to meet current market out there that you've -- it -- once more to do that up later today. I'm not just some repressed and asked the you know people look up to what some might connect -- -- -- -- -- -- -- ambient -- of people and that. At the big thing to me because not like to be it would he wouldn't talk -- into a regular person not at should be. Awkward and like economy like I'm not a human and on does just -- pros that are expressed the social media outlet in as such a brand -- up like that though. I don't like about -- -- that and it been -- so. Do you feel like you do you like if we get one bad thing and that that takes advantage of your willingness to do that. How how do you -- our allies that -- like -- your had to happen. And have a lot of -- in light are we better while Martin and Dan as always it would no one. -- -- on this on the war but I'm spelman at the way to say that I'm accurate on about -- I'm aware. Not. Like that it. People aren't -- waiter -- are about the you know something that is in the game register. Some weight as art critic are on -- I'll response. Narrow minded arsenic but desperate on the back me in and around the yard it'd be what it is.
