When Nature Calls | Vinyl Destination
DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Vinyl Destination crew arrive at the Hong Kong airport. After lunch at their go-to fast food spot, nature calls for Dayne and DJ Ferno. With neither of them willing to answer the call in the airport, the roommates get into a standoff about who gets first dibs on the hotel bathroom. Next, Jeff and Stevee Blast take their yearly trip to the renowned Sneaker Street. Jeff is disappointed when the experience isn’t quite the way he remembered. Then the guys venture off the beaten path on an ATV excursion through the jungle in Bali. Despite a few equipment malfunctions, the excitement continues.
