Package Voiceover: “If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering what a poodle moth is. Would you believe it, only one has been found in the world. Luckily, getting discovered once is all you need. All my life, I have been attracted to flame. But I always felt like the bright lights were never meant for me. I told myself I would never be pretty or funny or talented enough to actually do this. So, I took a step back and helped others achieve their dreams. And while I love that, I desperately wanted to spread my wings. But if I can take that first step, the light I thought was so impossible to find will come one step closer. So, I took the leap. And I was discovered. It showed me what a kind of person I am. And like Billy says, you’re perfect just the way you are.”

I saw the whole world dancing from evening till morning. Everyone knew my name. But, as the years passed, trends started changing and I suddenly realized that I was becoming frozen in time. So, this queen reinvented herself. And I achieved massive success again on my own terms. With the highest achievement of performance for a President. Now, as the Piano Man says, I’m going to sing a song for you tonight. So, all you other singers better be careful. Because your time is about to run out.”

You don’t want to die young on a path you don’t like. So, to spice things up, the possibilities for pastimes are endless. Now I’m on The Masked Singer with Billy Joel special. Mangiya!”
