LIsten to the new BTB promo. It doesn't sound like Amber-gris- key or "PAIR_A_DICE", but I agree with you, Wade, it is paradise!!

"...we make your dreams...Belizable"

Ouch.

Still, nice video. I see now that it is pronounced Ambergis, and not AmbergRis.

Ambergris
Ambergris

Ambergris (Ambra grisea, Ambre gris, ambergrease, or grey amber) is a solid, waxy, flammable substance of a dull gray or blackish color produced in the digestive system of sperm whales. Ambergris has a peculiar sweet, earthy odor (similar to isopropyl alcohol); though it has now been largely displaced by synthetics, the principal historical use of ambergris was as a fixative in perfumery.
The writer Herman Melville makes mention of ambergris in Moby-Dick. He discusses at length how ambergris was commonly found in dead whales floating in the South Pacific.
