[00:03:17] Trey Gerrald: No.

[00:03:18] Chelsey Donn: Okay, sorry. So there's A', blonde Man sort of bent over, A' sexy Santa's knee, and the sexy Santa's about to slap the tush of the sexy blonde man.

And he, he's pulled down his pants to the point where his underwear, um, are exposed and his underwear, obviously Christmas themed. And then it says, has someone been naughty?

[00:03:44] Trey Gerrald: Ooh.

[00:03:44] Chelsey Donn: And then the whole background of it is like A' wallpaper of 'I. Don't know. Kind of like, how would you describe it?

Trey the backdrop.

[00:03:52] Trey Gerrald: Yeah, it's like, you know, those old timey sweaters like faded in the back where it looks like it could have been crocheted. It's like Christmas trees and 'I. Guess these are, it's green, but 'I. Guess these are probably snowflakes or, yeah,
