Have you ever felt like being in a video clip when you're in the most natural and comfortable place?
Somewhere real and familiar such as home, perhaps in the shower? No? Oh, come on ... who'd believe you haven't?
How many of you pretend you're on film when you're singing in the shower, faking people applauses, screaming out your name and dancing like crazy? Ok, now we're getting to the point ...
Let's say Anja Czioska can make this happen! You can sing, you can dance, and you can be filmed while having a refreshing shower listening to music of the 70s ...
I know this text sounds more like an advert, but in a way ... this attitude of selling and showing yourself belongs very much to the 70s, where the whole idea of the "showerbox" comes from. There is, in fact, a kind of immorality, simplicity, nudity that can make you feel comfortable with yourself and others. I know, it sounds like publicity, I hate it,
I am really truly sorry.
