Apex Predators

Please choose a format above.

It’s spring break in Southern California and the beach is abuzz because The City Bros just dropped a hot new track! Also, dead bodies keep washing up on shore. Police suspect a shark, but this overlooks just how powerfully bad a song The City Bros have unleashed.

Grab a coveted plate of all-you-can-eat popcorn shrimp, find one hell of a dolphin to watch with, and join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for Apex Predators!
