I dressed up in a couple boxes and was “unwrapped” by Crank, holding a contact mic to his knife. The knife was also used to chop onions, making Crank tear up and me sneeze as I ate them raw. The onions were crammed in envelopes and stuck on the tape stretched across the columns, after a dramatized and amplified stretching maneuver timed at 5 minutes.
