Mark is asking if you can imagine someone videotaping the dogs and sending it in, Adam is lamenting the Petri dish of pussies in the Hollywood hills who are calling the cops 24/7.
Adam says it’s a little bit of juice meets a ton of narcissism and if they feel out of the loop they react in an insane way, “you didn’t consult me!”
