[lo-fi music]

We did a lot of, like, nay, nay, nays.

♪ Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm ♪

[Wendell rapping in foreign language]

[Linedy lip drumming]

Ah! Ah!


My favorite warm-up is to get a cup of water with a straw,

and just phonate, just kind of sing brr through the straw.

After the show you will hear me

in my [laughing] dressing room, going like, hello!

Thank you for coming to the show,

I hope you enjoyed the show, [laughing]

it sounds very weird, but it's just to trick your voice

into just speaking in a higher register.

Right before you on stage, just stick your arms out

in the air and go, I'm a genius!

And then, walk on stage.
