shahar

Now, this is the story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute
Just sit on floor
I’ll tell you how I became creative catalyst a the company Blonde 2.0

In North Rehovot born and raised
On the playstation was where I spent most of my days
Chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool
And all shootin some aliens outside of school
When a couple of guys
Who were doing real good
Startin lookin for a creative in my neighborhood
I got in one little interview and my mom was in awe
She said ‘I’m so happy Your Going to work at blonde 2.0′
