starring Ice Cube, Mike Epps, and John

Witherspoon.

5

:

We're three old heads who put their old

heads together to vibe on these films for

6

:

you.

7

:

I'm Dyno Wright, podcaster, filmmaker,

longtime hip hop fan, and I was 16 years

8

:

old on the day of Ice Cube's Good Day,

th,:

9

:

I'm JB, 80s and 90s nostalgia junkie,

longtime hip hop fan, and chiggety

10

:

chiggety check yourself before you wreck

yourself is definitely part of my daily

11

:

lexicon.

12

:

Ha ha, nice.

13

:

I'm Boogie, a DJ, long time hip hop fan,

and this movie contains one of my all time

14

:

favorite joints.

15

:

You can do it.

16

:

Yes.

17

:

That's a great song.

18

:

In this episode, we'll answer the

question, is Next Friday equally as funny

19

:

as the original in this series?

20

:

And we'll give you five key takeaways to

make you a smarter hip hop movie fan.

21

:

In Next Friday, Debo the terrifying bully,

escapes prison and is out for revenge on

22

:

Craig.

23

:

To escape, Craig seeks refuge in the

suburbs with his uncle Elroy and cousin

24

:

Day -Day.

25

:

However, the Burbs are no field day for

Craig and Day -Day, as the Joker Brothers

26

:

prove to be worthy foes.

27

:

In this one, there's slightly less weed,

but just as much adventure.

28

:

Here are five things you need to know

about Next Friday.

29

:

One, there's no Chris Tucker.

30

:

Ice Cube proves that he can carry the film

as the main star.

31

:

2.

32

:

The late John Witherspoon shows off his

signature ridiculous humor.

33

:

3.

34

:

Jacob Vargas as Big Joker is a hoot.

35

:

4.

36

:

We wanted more Debo but at least he drives

the plot line.

37

:

5.

38

:

The soundtrack features some prominent hip

-hop artists and is punctuated by the

39

:

memorable You Can Do It by Ice Cube, Mack

Ten, and Miss Toi

40

:

All right, let's dig into next Friday.

41

:

First takeaway, we mentioned there is no

Chris Tucker in this one, but Ice Cube

42

:

does prove he can carry the film as the

main star.

43

:

I thought he was relatable in this one as

he was in the original and he kind of

44

:

carried more of the starring role.

45

:

Boogie, what do you think about Cube in

this one as Craig?

46

:

Yeah, I think in this movie, you know, Ice

Cube really starts to flex his star power.

47

:

I think he takes it up a notch.

48

:

In Friday, you know, a lot of the crazy

over the top antics and one liners were

49

:

coming from Chris Tucker, you know, but as

we see in this movie, there's no Chris

50

:

coming from Chris Tucker, you know, but as

we see in this movie, there's no Chris

51

:

Tucker, which they actually did fill up

the plothole by saying that he went away,

52

:

Smokey went away to rehab, which makes

sense because he did smoke a lot, but.

53

:

we do see that Ice Cube has the capacity to carry a movie.

54

:

And he does really well with this one.

55

:

We have Mike Epps playing his cousin Day-Day

56

:

Who’s funny in his own way.

57

:

But is where we really get to see that Ice Cube has what it takes.

58

:

He has some good

59

:

antics in the movie and interactions with other characters.

60

:

Yeah, I think he did really well.

61

:

Yeah, DynoWright, what were your thoughts on Craig?

62

:

His role in this one, the way Ice

Cube portrayed him.

63

:

I think he did really well.

64

:

I do think not having Chris Tucker hurt a

lot and I think it's kind of unfair to

65

:

compare Mike Epps and Chris Tucker,

they're completely different kind of

66

:

comedic actors, but I really missed

Smokey.

67

:

I don't think this film is as good as

Friday, like not close, but I think

68

:

Boogie's right.

69

:

I think you really see Ice Cube flexes his

70

:

muscles more as the star of a movie.

71

:

He did write this film as he did Friday

with DJ Pooh And so and this is the first

72

:

of his production company, his own

production company, CubeVision.

73

:

So he's starting to make his move.

74

:

But there are other issues.

75

:

But Craig and Ice Cube isn't one of them.

76

:

I liked I liked Ice Cube's portrayal in

this one.

77

:

Like I said, Craig's a normal guy.

78

:

He's easy to root for.

79

:

He's a guy likes to just hang out, toke

up, have a good time, chases some skirts

80

:

around, tries to has to shake the

embarrassment of his dad's odd

81

:

idiosyncrasies.

82

:

And then his uncle's fetishes.

83

:

Craig has Craig had Craig has some

fantasies, which you know, that was a

84

:

theme in the first one as well.

85

:

And then there were some scenes that I

think he stole the show, which I was

86

:

laughing a lot.

87

:

To the mailman or the delivery guy,

Michael Rappaport, played by Michael

88

:

Rappaport.

89

:

I love the line where he's like, I played

for the Cucamonga Cracker Killers.

90

:

Want tickets?

91

:

Hahaha

92

:

I laughed at that.

93

:

I liked the scene when there was the

African man, literally from Africa.

94

:

He was making a big scene and causing a stir in Pinky’s record store, which Day-Day was working at.

95

:

And Craig beat him down, took care of it because he’s a tough guy now since he had stood up to Debo in the first one.

96

:

And then the standoff with Pinky. When Pinky, the owner of the record store,

97

:

thinks he’s robbing the store. And then there’s

98

:

up, and they're battling for the gun.

99

:

I thought Ice Cube did a good job with

Craig on those parts, those scenes.

100

:

Yeah, I liked it in terms of Craig's role.

101

:

Yeah, those scenes in Pinky’s were funny.

102

:

Definitely funny.

103

:

Michael Blackson, that player who

portrayed the African, he's, I can't get

104

:

jiggy with this.

105

:

He's trying to go off, he's gotta go off on Day-Day.

106

:

the best parts that we didn't get enough

of that, I thought.

107

:

Like, that kind of stuff.

108

:

Because Friday had all kinds of stuff like

that and we didn't get that.

109

:

But fun fact, Michael Blackson is Eli

Apple from the Dolphins, his uncle.

110

:

No way!

111

:

At least the internet said so.

112

:

The internet said he's Michael Blackson is his

uncle.

113

:

is Eli Apple.

114

:

Eli Apple used to be on the Giants too.

115

:

Yeah, he's been, he was on the Giants, he

was on the Bengals.

116

:

He's bounced around a bit.

117

:

He's kind of...

118

:

Sometimes he gets burnt on these pass

plays, but he's been around a while, so

119

:

kudos to Eli Apple.

120

:

That's pretty funny.

121

:

that short cameo or that short role he had

was like the umfufu bit from Eddie Murphy,

122

:

"Raw" I like come to life.

123

:

I felt like they took it right out of Eddie Murphy.

124

:

Eddie!

125

:

It was so funny how he was going off and then Craig just walks behind him like “ugh”

126

:

It’s like flicking a fly away. Alright, get out of here.

127

:

That initial interaction with Pinky, was funny too. That was hilarious.

128

:

Hahaha

129

:

Yeah, Clifton Powell.

130

:

Yeah, he comes in looking like a pimp. Yeah.

131

:

That was kinda crazy.

132

:

Meanwhile, he’s battling with Ice Cube, with Craig.

133

:

And in the back, his buddies Day-Day and Roach, they’re just toking up, having a good time

134

:

they’re oblivious to what’s going on in, on the main floor there.

135

:

Yeah.

136

:

That was funny.

137

:

When D'wana and Baby D showed up and she's

138

:

chasing, she's chasing, she's chasing

Day-Day around the car and he's trying to

139

:

give her a cookie.

140

:

And then she's like, you know, she says

that she wants to talk to Craig and

141

:

Day-Day is like, yeah, okay.

142

:

Kind of threw him under the bus.

143

:

Yeah.

144

:

Didn’t take one for the team there.

145

:

Oh man.

146

:

Baby D is like, no I can’t, I’m trying to cut down.

147

:

And she still takes a bite of the cookie.

148

:

Hahaha oh man.

149

:

Lady of Rage hilarious.

150

:

The character of Roach, briefly, was played by Justin Pierce, who was

151

:

the skateboarder that we had mentioned in All the Streets Are Silent.

152

:

Mm -hmm.

153

:

Who unfortunately died at a young age.

154

:

He was only like 25.

155

:

Yeah.

156

:

So it ties back. He was skateboarding inside of Pinky’s on the counter and then

157

:

Later on, you know, the skateboard gets

broken by the Jokers run it over.

158

:

Yeah, so.

159

:

Those were some good scenes.

160

:

Yeah, yeah.

161

:

I was like, who's in?

162

:

He's in this?

163

:

She's in this?

164

:

I kept doing that all through the movie.

165

:

Like, wow.

166

:

So it's just to show how influential Ice

Cube was even, in:

167

:

In 1999, 2000.

168

:

Yeah.

169

:

Speaking of the cast, it's a good segue.

170

:

Our takeaway number two is late John

Witherspoon shows off his signature

171

:

ridiculous humor.

172

:

He had me in stitches in this one as well.

173

:

Boogie, you wanna take us through some of

his highlights?

174

:

Yeah boy!

175

:

So yeah, John, he starts off immediately

in the beginning of the movie as he's

176

:

waiting for Craig.

177

:

He slips and falls in the fresh freshly

made dog poop.

178

:

But he gets in the truck and he's just

like trying to figure out what's going on.

179

:

And it's funny because in the back in the

background here, you know, bad luck

180

:

playing.

181

:

by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. I’m like wow what a perfect song.

182

:

Good drop. Good needle drop.

183

:

he drops Craig off and he's like, you

know, trying to give Craig some words of

184

:

wisdom.

185

:

And Craig's like, man, I'm grown, man.

186

:

I don't need to hear anything.

187

:

He said, all right, don’t bring your butt back

home.

188

:

Hahaha!

189

:

I'd say a classic Pops line right

there.

190

:

Then he goes to the burrito place and he

gets some hot sauce.

191

:

He has to go.

192

:

He's stuck in traffic on the way back to

Rancho Cucamonga.

193

:

But then he ends up running in the

bathroom.

194

:

He comes out and he's in the middle of the

restaurant.

195

:

He opens the door and the smell was

like...

196

:

just comes out and everybody's face is

nauseated immediately.

197

:

It's like what?

198

:

His line after that is really good though. He says,

199

:

You’re all jealous.

200

:

That actually made me laugh.

201

:

That was funny.

202

:

Classic Pops, man.

203

:

Don't go in there for 30, 35 minutes.

204

:

Yeah, someone had dropped a bomb on that

one before he got in there too.

205

:

And then, yeah, you could smell it through

the TV.

206

:

It was that bad.

207

:

He was carrying his air freshener.

208

:

He's carrying his air freshener with him.

209

:

Yeah.

210

:

that was...

211

:

I’ll let you guys chime in a little bit too but

212

:

he was just hilarious, any scene he’s in he just makes you laugh.

213

:

He’s got a way, his mannerisms, the way he talks,

214

:

He’s, he’s singing about that, in the car while he’s trying to hold in his...

215

:

He’s like I shouldn’t have had that hot sauce. He starts singing about it.

216

:

And at the one point he’s spraying the

217

:

air freshener in Craig’s face.

218

:

And then the one thing

219

:

I’m gonna get naked with your mama, I’m like

220

:

Walk around naked.

221

:

And he’s talking about the Bald Johnson dance, I was dying.

222

:

Aw man.

223

:

ha!

224

:

Yeah, man, that was wild.

225

:

Yeah.

226

:

Mm -mm -mm.

227

:

John Witherspoon

228

:

I really enjoyed him riffing with DC Curry

in this movie who plays his brother.

229

:

I would have liked more of that.

230

:

That was really good stuff.

231

:

Uncle Elroy.

232

:

Hahaha

233

:

Oh man.

234

:

Good stuff.

235

:

Good stuff.

236

:

John Witherspoon, he's a scene stealer.

237

:

We always, we mentioned that on a few of

our episodes.

238

:

One of the great scene stealers in all of cinema.

239

:

Remember the first one, the public enema

240

:

Public enema

241

:

Hahaha

242

:

I love how he took the whole bottle of hot sauce.

243

:

He took the whole bottle.

244

:

Hehehe

245

:

pops, what a pop move.

246

:

Pops, Pops, rest in peace John Witherspoon

More cast members that provided some comic

247

:

relief.

248

:

Jacob Vargas as Big Joker.

249

:

I thought he was a riot.

250

:

Ese, you know, the Latin guys.

251

:

Boogie, you want to speak to like, what

made you laugh about either Big Joker or

252

:

maybe his brothers or their interactions

with these guys?

253

:

of those guys were hilarious because they

were just like the exaggerated accent,

254

:

like the constant tough guy ese.

255

:

Even like, I get em mixed even, Little

Joker was the one that kept having his

256

:

head, his skully pulled down.

257

:

He's like four foot nothing, like tiny

guy, but he's got like Napoleon complex.

258

:

He's like so tough and he's like all about

beating.

259

:

beating up Craig or, you know, know,

Day-Day even when they're sticking their

260

:

dog Chico, on Craig when he was trying to

talk to their sister, Karla chasing them

261

:

around and like those guys, man, I could

watch a movie with just those three guys

262

:

and just have them have antics with them.

263

:

They were hilarious.

264

:

Yeah, I like there was one line I think it

was Big Joker.

265

:

It was like, get out of here Day-Day and

you too Slim Shady.

266

:

He called Roach Slim Shady because he's a

white guy.

267

:

And there was it was the one other line he

said this ain't the love connection, you

268

:

know, these little little little barbs

were cracking me up because I was I was

269

:

not expecting those.

270

:

Yeah.

271

:

Yeah, I enjoyed their caricature

representations of actual Latin gang

272

:

members.

273

:

Yeah, they were caricatures, that's

exactly right.

274

:

That's a good way to put it, for sure.

275

:

Yep, yep.

276

:

Yep.

277

:

And they had that, what was was hydraulic

cylinder with all the money in it.

278

:

Yeah.

279

:

Yeah, that was crazy.

280

:

Takeaway number four is Debo's role in

this one.

281

:

It's minimal, but it does drive the plot

line at least.

282

:

Debo, as everybody knows from the series,

is the Tiny Lister, and he's the bully.

283

:

And it drives the storyline is that he's

now, this is four years after Friday, the

284

:

initial one, right?

285

:

years?

286

:

I think I have to watch the beginning

again, but it seemed like it was either

287

:

like the next week or it was two years ago

or it was four years ago.

288

:

Was it the following week?

289

:

I thought so.

290

:

He got sentenced for four, he was supposed

to get four years, but he broke out the

291

:

following week.

292

:

Like the word on the street was that he

was going to break out the following week

293

:

and it was all going out throughout the

neighborhood and Pops got wind of it.

294

:

He said, all right, Craig, you got to get

out of here.

295

:

Okay, yeah, okay, yeah.

296

:

I got you.

297

:

So it is the final next week.

298

:

Okay.

299

:

All right, that makes sense then.

300

:

So he broke out early, breaking out in the

orange jumpsuits and they steal Tyrone.

301

:

They steal a bike from the kid perfectly.

302

:

That was appropriate on brand.

303

:

And then they're riding the tandem bike

together at one point, which was classic.

304

:

Yeah, they had Tyrone run on handlebars.

305

:

Played by Sticky Fingaz, yes.

306

:

Who we’ve seen in In Too Deep.

307

:

And I was looking at his IMDb, he's done a

ton of movies, I didn't realize this.

308

:

A lot of movies.

309

:

So good for him.

310

:

play Blade for a little while?

311

:

I think he Blade on a TV show for a little

little

312

:

He was like Scrappy Doo in this movie.

313

:

Someone reviewed this and said that Tyrone

was Scrappy Doo.

314

:

Yeah, yeah.

315

:

Puppy Power!

316

:

Scrappy Doo dude, yeah, that makes sense.

317

:

Rappy Roo!

318

:

But most of the movie, the issue we’re talking about, most of the movie, Debo and Tyrone

319

:

they’re stuck in Willie’s – Craig’s dad – animal control car, like the entire time.

320

:

So you don’t get to see that much interaction, except them being uncomfortable and

321

:

slapping each other around or yelling at each other until the end

322

:

Yeah, it’s like the one time they ran

323

:

over to catch Craig before he left and

Willie put the foot to the gas and pulled

324

:

off with Tyrone on the hood.

325

:

He ends up falling off and Willie just

keeps on going.

326

:

And then when Debo does, when he finally

gets out of the car and he confronts them,

327

:

he gets knocked out by the family.

328

:

I think it was Elroy and Willie that I

think they both got a shot in on him.

329

:

Yeah.

330

:

So it was not much Debo.

331

:

Going on there.

332

:

The whole movie like, all right, when is

Debo going to arrive and when is our hell

333

:

going to break loose?

334

:

Yeah, right.

335

:

Exactly.

336

:

Yeah, then the final takeaway is the

soundtrack.

337

:

There's some prominent hip hop artists, a

lot of good hip hop artists on it, but

338

:

it's punctuated by the very memorable You

Can Do It that you mentioned in the

339

:

opening boogie.

340

:

When that comes on during the end credits,

you know, you got to be bopping your head.

341

:

Yeah.

342

:

So as soon as I hear that intro, dun, dun,

dun, I'm like, there it is.

343

:

Great beat.

344

:

That's a banger.

345

:

The soundtrack features Aaliyah, N.W.A.,

346

:

Eminem, Wyclef Jean, Ja Rule, Wu-Tang Clan,

347

:

You don’t hear the songs all that loud and prominently, but

348

:

if you did have the soundtrack back in the day. I don’t know if you guys had it but

349

:

some great artist on that.

350

:

Yeah.

351

:

other songs stick out to you boogie?

352

:

You're more of the the more of the deep

cut guy.

353

:

I didn’t own this soundtrack.

354

:

And I don’t

355

:

necessarily remember too much about it.

356

:

Nah, I really don't remember too much

about the soundtrack.

357

:

And I was looking at it for the, you know,

when we were doing our notes and

358

:

everything.

359

:

And I was surprised by how many different

artists were on here that I didn't even

360

:

realize were on the soundtrack.

361

:

But like, yeah, it's loaded with some

heavyweights, you know.

362

:

You know, he even got a couple of the Bone

Thugs and Harmony Brothers on.

363

:

He got, he got Bizzy Bone on one, Krayzie

Bone on one song, Bizzy Bone on another

364

:

song, Wu -Tang Clan, Big Tymers Lil Wayne,

Kurupt Ja Rule like wow.

365

:

Yeah.

366

:

It's quite a list of artists.

367

:

Yeah.

368

:

Yeah.

369

:

the most memorable, you can do it.

370

:

It was awesome.

371

:

That's what I'm I'm just a party going.

372

:

That’s the best thing that came out of this movie.

373

:

Hahaha

374

:

Oh, jeez.

375

:

The song was so good it made to Save the Last Dance.

376

:

Hahaha

377

:

Hahaha.

378

:

Ha!

379

:

Oh man.

380

:

Other tidbits, if you have any, I did get

a kick out of Ms.

381

:

Ho-Kym Kim as well.

382

:

She was talking kind of gangster.

383

:

Yeah, she was pretty funny.

384

:

I've seen her in a lot of other things.

385

:

My kids used to like this show called Just

Add Magic.

386

:

I forget which streaming service it was

on, but she was the motherly figure in

387

:

that one.

388

:

Yeah, you see her in a lot of things.

389

:

If you look at her filmography,

390

:

What is her name?

391

:

Let me, I gotta get her her name to do it

justice, but she was, she was funny.

392

:

get that.

393

:

Amy Hill, Amy Hill, Amy Hill.

394

:

Yeah.

395

:

Yeah.

396

:

You know, it's odd.

397

:

I look through the cast, they list Reese

Witherspoon.

398

:

Was she really in this?

399

:

Did you guys catch her in the background

or something?

400

:

I did not see her.

401

:

find it too.

402

:

I'm like...

403

:

Where did you see that?

404

:

I just got it from the, the cast listing

when I, when I Google it for next Friday.

405

:

Yeah.

406

:

Unless it was mistaken.

407

:

Yeah.

408

:

in, in Day-Day's room?

409

:

Hahaha

410

:

I didn’t pick up on any that.

411

:

I didn’t pick up on that, so maybe have been an error.

412

:

Reese Witherspoon is related to John Witherspoon.

413

:

Hahaha

414

:

That’s hilarious.

415

:

I’m gonna have to look it up.

416

:

If you Google “Reese Witherspoon Next Friday scene” there’s something out there on TikTok.

417

:

Is that, maybe it’s a deleted scene or something. I don’t know.

418

:

Maybe it was a deleted scene.

419

:

Maybe there was a different version of it.

420

:

I did not notice her.

421

:

She popped up on the cast and that surprised me.

422

:

It's a good ensemble cast.

423

:

Like you said, Don Curry, Tiny Lister,

Justin Pierce briefly, John Witherspoon,

424

:

Mike Epps, Ice Cube, Clifton Powell.

425

:

Yeah, Michael Blackson, Sticky Fingaz,

yeah, Jacob Vargas.

426

:

Very, very cool.

427

:

Yeah, and I like the DC Curry and John

Witherspoon interactions.

428

:

They actually do come back in the next

movie.

429

:

Oh good.

430

:

So that's Friday after next, right?

431

:

Yeah, Friday after next.

432

:

Is that the next one?

433

:

Yeah.

434

:

How many were there three?

435

:

Were there three?

436

:

Was that the last one?

437

:

Friday, next Friday, Friday after next.

438

:

Three..

439

:

yeah.

440

:

I thought they were talking about a fourth

one at some point.

441

:

one, but it never came to production.

442

:

Yeah.

443

:

And also Clifton Power returns in small

part in the next one as well.

444

:

Oh good.

445

:

okay, yeah, yeah.

446

:

yeah, yeah.

447

:

Yeah.

448

:

And yeah, it's good.

449

:

Kym Whitley is hilarious too.

450

:

Like, yeah,

451

:

Haha she was a gem though.

452

:

So when Uncle Elroy hit the lottery,

453

:

his original wife passed away from shock from them winning.

454

:

And now he’s dating Suga

455

:

played by Kym Whitley and she's a handful.

456

:

Um hmm!

457

:

To say the least.

458

:

To say the least!

459

:

She was trying to get a handful of some Craig.

460

:

Say the least.

461

:

She got two good handfuls.

462

:

yeah.

463

:

That was wild.

464

:

Yeah, she was wild.

465

:

man.

466

:

Aw man.

467

:

Yeah, I'm glad you mentioned her.

468

:

She was funny.

469

:

Yeah.

470

:

with Tamala Jones playing crazy, D'Wana

wanna Day-Day's ex girlfriend, Day-Day's

471

:

pregnant ex girlfriend.

472

:

Yeah?

473

:

He's like, this is not my baby.

474

:

Yeah.

475

:

He was trying to say she was already three

months pregnant when he met her or

476

:

something like trying to do the math or

something like that.

477

:

trying to do the math, yeah, and it didn't

add up.

478

:

didn't add up!

479

:

that?

480

:

Yeah, so...

481

:

Let's go around the room and give our

ratings for Next Friday.

482

:

So BooGie, I’ll start with you as usual, for Next Friday.

483

:

Bring that funky flick back or leave it in

the vault.

484

:

Bring that funky flick back.

485

:

I haven't watched this in a while and I

forgot how funny it was and now I look

486

:

forward to watching the next one again now

and I gotta go watch it.

487

:

Hahaha

488

:

DynoWright, Next Friday,

bring that funky flick back or leave it in

489

:

the vault.

490

:

In a rare difference of opinion.

491

:

I'm going to leave this in the vault.

492

:

I think it's unfair to compare it to

Friday, but here I am seeing that it just

493

:

didn't move me as much as I mean, Friday,

Friday, I think, is a legitimate classic

494

:

and we can all quote lines from Friday.

495

:

And Chris Tucker was just so electric in

that movie that it's unfair to Mike Epps

496

:

because he was really funny in this, too.

497

:

But I just.

498

:

you start to recycle some of the things

from the first movie and some of it's

499

:

funny and some of it's just like, just

reheated this in the microwave.

500

:

It had some elements, I

did enjoy some of it, but I'm leaving this

501

:

in the vault.

502

:

All right.

503

:

As for me, I will bring this funky flick

back.

504

:

I enjoyed it as much as the original,

although it did not have the iconic lines

505

:

that we recite like Bye Felicia and Damn It

still made me laugh a lot.

506

:

And I would like to rewatch this.

507

:

I'm a comedy fan and it did tickle my

funny bone quite a bit.

508

:

So for myself, I will say bring this funky

flick.

509

:

Okay.

One of my favorite lines

Would you join the navy if you didn’t like the gravy and rice?

Think a-bout it.

Yeah.

540

Yeah.

541

:

I'm gonna have to listen to that again

now.

542

:

Hahaha

543

:

Yeah.

544

Between Think about it, I Got It Made and

I'm the Magnificent, like I would put

545

those on rotation.

547

:

I know almost, yeah, those three.
