Dante: If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
Lowkey: I enjoyed my time there, met a ton of awesome people and took a big pooper on josh's toilet.
Dante: If you could be partnered with any sauce company to get free sauce for life, what sauce would you get?

Dante: What role in a movie do you think you would perfectly play?
Lowkey: I would want to play as a bald superhero. As I slaughter the bad guys with my shining head (which blinds them). I would then force them all to shave their heads bald and finally pull out my secret weapon (Rogaine). After they lather that onto their big heads, we watch the magic happen.
Dante: If you had $67 right now what would be your first order of business?
Lowkey: 3 Large pizzas, a $10 bond on Alora and a Donald Trump hat.
