    “Just Cause? More like Just Ridiculous!” Dud u are ridiculous.. The part where he shoots the air tank and then jumps on it and rides it way into the air… One time I did that when the aliens were attacking my princess and it worked awesome. Killed the alien robot leader and I saved the smurfs and my princess. For REALLY REALS!
