The story: 'Set in the heavens of the Greek Gods, three self involved narcissistic soldiers (wearing Ada + Nik swimwear) gaze at their own reflection in a pool of water listening to music (by Zebra Katz) on their Philips Fidelio M1s. The Snow Queen played by actress, model and presenter Zara Martin enters – practically floating on the clouds as she approaches the throne she summons a gift of Snow Queen Vodka from earth. She hands the bottle to The Snake King played by the inimitable Aiden Shaw and the snake “Cornflake”. Zara hisses, the boys then appear as if by magic in front of the throne – fully clothed in Ada + Nik. They then begin to gift their clothes to the King and Queen and fight each other for the clothes until one of the boys is left naked and alone.'
