THE VIRAL QUEEN

Nofar's parody Queen of the Chocolate became viral.

Story: Based on an violent event on an aircraft, in which a few passengers got angry because the flight attendant couldn't sell them chocolate on the flight.

Result: We took the "lyrics" of the original fight (which was recorded) and applied them on one of the most demanding and famous arias for soprano - The Queen of the Night aria (Mozart) .
