All right, let us jump into and unpack the unpacked. And what did you think about the production value of the event now that we've had nearly a year of pandemic focused entertainment virtually? And what was the most interesting thing you thought about the show, and then we'll get into the particulars about the announcements.

I like the fact that this is the third unpacked event they've done this year. They've been consistent in the design, consistent in the narrative and the pacing, it was an hour they stuck to an hour, you kind of knew what you were getting, you know, it's like watching an episode of TV, you knew what 45 minutes in you were through the big stuff. And they were starting to wrap up the story. So they I believe they got their messaging across very clearly, they were very good at getting the core message across. And we'll talk about that quite a bit. There was one underlying message, which I think is going to become the bigger narrative as we finish out 2021 and move into the next couple of years, they've really doubled down on one core concept.
