Everyone helped out, Bobby and Daggo, Aussie sending clips helped actually make it happen and surprisingly we've got a video now.

2.How long have you did you film for it?There's a few older clips, like the oldest ones are about a year old, but most of the filming happened in the last four months before it came out.I started coming up to NF every weekend, getting a few more people to do some full sections and stuff like that.
