Adam is sharing Drew’s advice about spanking and how it should only be used in circumstances to prevent a child from hurting themselves with behavior like running into traffic.


Alison has a great “Luca” reference, Adam loves it and now he’s sending it down the river and calling for “Hell is for Children” his classic Karaoke number along with “Vehicle”.

They’re discussing the history of this song and BB has a nice point, Adam is walking them through his moves and Greg is now joining in, BB is asking Alison about her reaction and she’s got a hilariously evil response.

Adam is now telling “Luca” to do something to Pat that you will have to listen in order to know, holy shit!


Alison’s reactions are amazing and Adam is further explaining how he adds to his performance with physicality.
