Explore the duality of breakfast content with the duo of Oscar and Liv. 

For 3 hours. It'd be quite the endeavour, but you should try it! Its nutritional content is as follows; 75g of musical noise, 15g of dawdling dialogue, 5g of eating and another 5g of technological exploration. Wow! If that sounds like a bit of you, which of course it does, go ahead take a bite!
