Transcript

"I meant that one. This one. That's me. I don't want to have my hair like that though. But I'm going to anyways."

"Yeah, you don't have a choice."

"I wish you had an axe guitar."

"Are you kidding?? You're going to wear your hair like that?"

"Yeah."

"Why?"

"'Cause we wanna look like KISS."

"Hey I'm not changing my hair."

"A wig you fool."

"An axe guitar with an axe on the end?"

"Yeah, his guitar is like it's...it's shaped like an axe. It's got a blade here and everything."

"See this is the same thing as the other pictures except this thing doesn't have an arm brace."

"Here go back, go forward again..."
