Explosions even before entering the airport such as “Terrorist” and “c ***” lead Adam Ladell to claim that there are a lot of swear words and jokes that the fun part has come too far.
Ladell points out that as people are watching him at some point in the video, many are unaware that the three are having out of control explosions.
“This guy was just hitting me so hard,” he said. “Was he just thinking what the kid was doing?” “
During security, Ladell puts his phone down, but can be heard shouting “handguns” and “bazookas”.
