With DJ Mama Jo

MPDGs are whimsical, quirky, and eccentric fantasy women whose only purpose is to save the male protagonist from himself; thus, aside from the above attributes, are flat characters. Music featured will be from the film soundtrack or songs that fit โœจ๐“ฝ๐“ฑ๐“ฎ ๐“ฟ๐“ฒ๐“ซ๐“ฎ๐“ผโœจ of the characters or settings.
