A good day for business. I just know it!

Edit: I never knew about this but yeah. Looks like there’s at least one vid on this.


Its cool that you mention it. I remember when i watched the first hitman movie that i immediately noticed it but never knew someone who also watched hitman and dark angel back then. I never looked it up on the internet either, but thanks for the late confirmation. :sunglasses:


I watched Dark Angel… for reasons. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


can’t blame you… . :melting_face:
