She says at the start of the video that she and a buddy wanted to hire a Lamborghini but that you had to be over 30; as a result, they had to make due with a Tesla.

After spending $130 on salads, the two decide to go to the rumoredly haunted Cecil Hotel on Skid Row, a part of the city noted for its poverty and homelessness. Testa has her buddy drive her there.

However, Testa stated that she would not get out of the car to take a closer look at the motel because she was "weeping" at the poverty as they drove down Skid Row.

Later, when she waved currency in front of the camera, Testa pondered whether the "washable Australian money or the American money with blood stains on it" was preferable.
