    When the professor slowly came out with the guitar that was amazing I gasped. That was some master puppetry on Shane’s part not only operating two puppets at once but also making sure they were on point and not breaking character. Also doing the professor on his LEFT hand. Just chefs kiss 💋 🤏

    I refuse to think of Ryan, Shane,or the alter ego Profess ect as influencers. Besides, wasn't this guy a musician? I try to zero in on the "talent" of different "influencers." To name a few would be putting makeup on, gossiping, lip syncing on tiktok? You guys & crew surpass that & are much 😎 cooler & talented. Jacks of many trades Creators😀💓
