    I’d like to know the intent - if there even is one - probably appeal to young studs who find such accoutrements appealing. Then the question becomes - what depth of character and knowledge do they have? Also, why have the only woman put her arm around the tall guy’s waste and his response? This speaks to the temperament of the owners of the firm. I advise scrapping it and starting over with an authentic representation of the culture. Wait. Maybe that is the culture. Run.
