-I want you guys to know we got clearance for this little stunt from-- like the County Fire Marshall and then the-- the-- -Clark County Fire Department -Clark County Fire Department and all. We have a Fire Marshall's Inspections this morning. It's all been extremely exciting for me. Okay, this doesn't fit that well, I'm just gonna put them right here. Okay. -So which one are we gonna-- -First, let's go-- I think we should go with the GoPro, which look, is recording-- -Oh okay, as we go. -Yeah. So as it goes to its doom. Got our little fryer basket. Going towards the-- Oh my god. Still recording. The light is still flashing. I mean, GoPro. It's-- seriously though, it's still recording right now, with the fryer basket stuck to the side. -Now do you want to drop that thing? -Not this-- not this one. Look at that-- look though.
