MM: Red Ribbon Edition

9 Dec

Hey folks, I’m crawling out of my cave (the next season of MVT3K will be coming soon, I promise) to do some specials for Red Ribbon Month.

But I think you will all agree that I found the best version possible.

The conversion to Blip darkened the video immensely, so you may have to adjust viewing conditions accordingly. Audible Underwear: interactive snark!
