Former Zooppa team member Arik Abel recently went to India. We couldn't go with him, but a couple friends challenged him to do a Bollywood dance in public to M.I.A.'s Paper Planes. In front of the Maharaja Palace.

Give the people what they want. Don't advertise an action-packed blockbuster if it's actually a rom-com--everybody will end up disappointed. (This can also be seen as a metaphor for relationships.)
