It’s the year 3000.
A time capsule from 2015 is opened containing DJ Khaled’s Instagram ,a slightly stale but edible Doritos Locos Tacos, and a complete photo collection of Pepe the Frog memes.
The cyborgs laugh at the crude culture of the 2000s. They then propel into space with their jet-fueled body suit to go clubbing in the stratosphere while sipping on 4lokos (b/c it’s a timeless beverage.)
Come party/surpass dimensions of time and space with WXYC and Nightlight for the 3000s Dance on April 17th. The future is truly where it's at.
