Game of Thrones Sneak Peek – SNL



– [RCSparks] Joe! In the last episode there was a lot of mother-truckers that were upset that Kevin left the yard with pipes hanging over the
edge of his trailer. Why? – It was an oversize load day. – [RCSparks] It said in the title! (exasperated noises) (intense music) – All right guys it’s time for the Internet’s favorite trucking show What is it? (crowd yelling) – [RCSparks] Yeah, you guys
know exactly what’s going on. Krazy Joe! – Yo! – [RCSparks] I see you’re wearing a shirt that’s hilarious today – (laughs) it’s a complete lie (laughter) – [RCSparks] And you can attest. Trent welcome back – Thank you so much – [RCSparks] Krazy Joe’s son – Glad to be back – [RCSparks] Ready to rock
and roll in the arena sir? – Of course. – [RCSparks] Michael, always
a pleasure to have you rockin’ out with iron
maiden and Sluicebox Steve! – Hey – [RCSparks] You got a new t-shirt bro? – Yeah (laughter) – [RCSparks] Cody welcome back! And as always Rookie is in the house. Now, we know that Cody is
here, Sluicebox Steve is here, Trent is here. These guys would be a perfect
match up for first round yeah? (group agreeing) – [RCSparks] I would think so So I put them each here on the board. They can tell there’s
one of each name here. We’re gonna spin to see who goes first. What are we playing to win today boys? – Five hundred dollars – [RCSparks] Whoa! – Cash money! – [RCSparks] (mumbles) Cash money I got it right here, look at it (crowd mumbling) – [RCSparks] I know you guys all think it’s Monopoly money but that’s
real Canadian money there isn’t it? Now I’m gonna give you a little
bit of a surprise today boys I have upgraded the Wheel of Fortune! (crowd cheering) Now there’s no more five dollar spots they’re all ten dollar spots. You’ll see the thirties
all flipped over to fifties (crowd whistling and cheering) – [RCSparks] Still you have the S-O-L which gets you what? – Bupkis – [RCSparks] Yes, shit outta luck – Zero – [RCSparks] That’s right well You also have a chance to
win or spin the multiplier. You do not have to spin the multiplier you have to qualify and choose which may give you up
to five times your cash out of my pocket. There have been some very
generous people donating to us in our live streams. – (mumbling) – [RCSparks] Yes, or in our premieres So that’s why we’ve done this. So you boys ready to see who goes first? – [Crowd] Yeah! – [RCSparks] Round and round she goes who’s it gonna be? (wheel whirring) – [RCSparks] Loading king.
That’s a good wheel today! Trent! (quiet cheering) Yes brother! Trent come
on up here spin the wheel to see who it’s gonna be. If you spin your own name, the person immediately to the
right will be the competitor – Alright let’s go – [RCSparks] Spin away bro (wheel whirs) – [RCSparks] Who’s it gonna be? Steve! (loud cheering) – [RCSparks] Yeah! – Your (mumbles) today Trent. – Here we go – We’ll see – [RCSparks] Both of
you guys have a chance Now I wanna let you know that
rack number 7 right here, the porta potty right here, and this rack number eight. If you load any of those
on your trailer today, you will successfully have
activated your ability to spin the multiplier if you win. But you do not have to
choose the multiplier we’ll get into that
later if you win, yeah? – Okay – [RCSparks] Okay You got three things
that you gotta do today. Your trailers are on either side you guys can figure out who’s
side you’re gonna be on. You have to load up two pallets onto your trailer after you dock them into your docks right here. You can load them up with your forklift. You will be getting the pallets from the one and only Tile Master. – Yo! – [RCSparks] Yes If you do not ask them for a tile when your forklift is
on the forklift spot, and you ask them otherwise what is it? (game buzzer noise) – [Crowd] Penalty! – [RCSparks] A penalty! If you go over the black and yellow tape, hit any of the blocks,
bump the rack by backing up unless you’re loading what is it? – [Crowd] Penalty! – [RCSparks] Everybody knows. Especially if you knock over
this poor old dock manager who’s been dying for
this job, what happens? (loud bang) – [Crowd] You’re fired! – [RCSparks] Automatic disqualification. Now, what if somebody shouts out a helpful hint or tip to you? (crowd murmurs) – [RCSparks] (mumble) What?
That doesn’t even make sense. – It hurts. – [RCSparks] It hurts. – (mumbles) We’re
Canadians we love to help – [RCSparks] Yeah. It’s
comedy man, why not? Now, they have to get those two pallets called by Rookie onto their trailer but they also at some
point during their game they have to take one
of their rock trucks, there’s one on either side, per side. It doesn’t matter which side they grab, they can take either rock truck. The one that’s available, take it down. They have to dump out
the logs that are in it inside this area. If it goes over the lines, not a big deal. If it goes over the black
and yellow, penalty! Always a penalty, that’s right. What is your penalty today gentlemen? Well a big shout out to Wyatt
Hyslop, one of our viewers that actually suggested. We hooked up this steering wheel if you guys have never seen this before, I showed how to hook up one of these steering
wheels and pedal systems to a radio transmitter that will power the
Nightmare Horror Hauler. Can you guys believe
what you’re seeing today? (laughing and murmuring) – This is getting way more advanced all the time. In fact, why don’t you hold this for me? Somebody grab the camera for me. This is totally hooked up to the pedal and steering system. (small truck whirs) – What you’re gonna have to do is pull your truck up to
this orange X right here. There’s a laser system there don’t go over it you’ll trip it. You wanna back your way
up to this X right here. Then you wanna get up to this one up here. And as soon as you touch that X the judge will tell you
that you can back up to the final spot. And you are clear from penalty. Then you go back to work. – Wheel – [RCSparks] (laughs) What do you see? – I see some changes – [RCSparks] Yeah! Fifties
and seventy fives on here now. – Oh 3D! – [RCSparks] Seventy fives, man. – Awesome. – Nice. – This five’s kind- (loud whirring and mumbling) – Oh I’m coming over there. – [RCSparks] You can’t judge your son. – I know. I’m making my way to that side. – [RCSparks] It’s gotta
be fair all the way around Cody, sir, are you judging? – I’ll judge Trent’s – [RCSparks] Excellent, excellent! – (mumble) after this – [RCSparks] I think
that you should actually be the penalty judge sir – Oh I could do that. – [RCSparks] You could
be the penalty judge. Because Mike knows the rules
better than anybody over here (many speaking) – [RCSparks] We don’t have any real rules set out for the loaders yet do we? – No – [RCSparks] It’s all for forklifts. – I just think it’s fair
if it’s close to the ground – [RCSparks] What? – It doesn’t have to
be forks on the ground but they have to be close – [RCSparks] I think
that they could leave it in any position, but we’re gonna (crowd arguing) – [RCSparks] It could be any
position, extra extra dangerous – Okay, (mumbling) you know safety is number twenty one priority around here. – Okay and the last
change we wanted to say before we start is each player this round, not in any other games, this round has to finish their penalty before they’re allowed to get up and leave because I think these guys actually want to do the penalty today, yeah? (crowd mumble and laughter) – [RCSparks] Drivers, start your trucks. (whirring and starting beep) – [RCSparks] In three,
two, one, dock your trucks. (alarm buzzer) (intense music) – [RCSparks] Come on boys!
Let’s see what you got! (crowd cheering) – [RCSparks] Who’s going to
be the Loading King today! (shouting) – [RCSparks] First one
into the yard, Steve. Oh nice! Trent hasn’t been in the
arena since last year. Did an awesome show with Mikal. One of our more popular videos in fact. I think that was on the
Loading King’s channel. (trucks whirring) – Trent’s got me blocked right off here. – [RCSparks] (laughs)
That’s the way of the road – There she goes – [RCSparks] I don’t
wanna see any piss jugs flying outside the windows here boys keep those inside until after the game. Sluicebox Steve making his
efforts to get to the dock. (soft, faint conversation) – [RCSparks] The line up
of trucks today is insane both of these guys, look at this, getting closer, getting closer. – I don’t have very
tight turn radius here. – [RCSparks] Judge says
he’s in! Sluicebox! (murmurs) – [RCSparks] Yes! – Sir, you are seven bottom. – [RCSparks] Oh! I can’t
tell him where it is, he has to find it. But, none of our pallet racks
are in any kind of order makes it more challenging. Sluicebox making his moves. Is he gonna accept that?
Oh, he decides to change it. – I would’ve accepted that – [RCSparks] (laughter) What was that? – I would’ve just gone. I’m just talking about myself – [RCSparks] Yeah, yeah
that’s pretty close – That was totally… – [RCSparks] (clears throat)
He was just talking to people in the audience,
Talking amongst yourselves, that’s right in the (mumbles) (group yelling) (buzzer sound) – [RCSparks] Blatant penalty right there. – We saw that. – [RCSparks] Boom, so there we go. Trent over to the seat. This is the first time
anyone, outside of me, has ever used this. This is just like a gas pedal, Trent. – (mumble) I wanna see this – [RCSparks] (laughs) He
has to get to the front. Judge, call it out if he’s good. (yells) – [RCSparks] Yeah. He’s
gotta go in a W pattern all the way to the back. He also gets seven bottom. Sluicebox Steve now
making his way over there. How is this Trent? – I love it. – [RCSparks] (laughs) Yeah, he’s got it. Coaching is allowed in the penalty zone. He does have it. You’re back to work, sir! Run, run, run, good job! Loving that penalty already. Thank you Cody! (crowd cheering) – [RCSparks] Oh Sluice, he’s
in the crippled zone here. Right on! (loud whirring) – [RCSparks] Trent! – What’s my (mumble)? – Thank you for asking,
(mumbling) seven top. There’s a lot of sevens in here. – [RCSparks] Oh man, another seven! Sluice, bumping the rack. He did bump the rack going forward in an attempt to get the
pallet, which is legal, as long as he doesn’t
bump the rack at all. Here comes Trent down the
other side of the aisle. (crowd uproars) (buzzer sound) – [RCSparks] Penalty!
You are right out, sir. Judge, grab his forklift. (crowd arguing) – [RCSparks] Grab his forklift. Yeah, can’t go through the wall sir. There we go. Yeah! (crowd murmurs) That might have been on purpose. Trent now gets down, here’s Sluice. Sluice gets his opportunity. Insane! (loud mechanical whirring) A challenge that we’ve
never had in the studio. – [Judge] Good. – [RCSparks] Starting off
simple, just with the truck we’re not adding a trailer yet. – [Judge] Good. – [RCSparks] Oh nice.
Those laser trip wires are set up with an alarm
if he goes too far. He’d have to start the penalty again. – [Sluicebox Steve] (cheering) – [RCSparks] You’re in the clear! – Nice! – That was fun! – [RCSparks] Yeah! (laughter) – [RCSparks] Yeah, look at Trent! Got his first one off! Very good! – [Mikal] You are nine bottom, sir. (mechanical whirring) – [RCSparks] Trent, in the clear. (crowd cheering) – [RCSparks] Come on! (clapping) – Let’s get these trucks loaded up boys! – [RCSparks] See? Now
there’s a difference, Cody said, “come on guys
let’s see some speed”. he wasn’t coaching either one of them, it was a group comment. – We got a schedule to meet. – [RCSparks] (laughter) – (mumble) What was that number? – [RCSparks] Yeah! – It was nine bottom. – Oh, I went the wrong place. (crowd yelling) – [RCSparks] It looks high. (crowd yelling) – Oh penalty! (buzzer sound) – [RCSparks] Oh, right there! Yes. Trent getting his first
pallet possibly on board. (crowd laughing and yelling) – [RCSparks] Having some trouble. – (mumble) just love the penalty. – [RCSparks] Battling
it out, away he goes. – This is good. – [RCSparks] Judge Mikal
keeping a strict eye on him. Sluicebox Steve attempting
the penalty again. Now one-handing it, feeling
more confident in the penalty. (yelling) – [RCSparks] Yeah, he’s driving. He’s got a chance of winning here. Oh, almost. There you go, you’re clear! – Nice (clapping) – [RCSparks] I see you’re
having a hard time there, sir. – Yeah (mumbles) – [RCSparks] There is a secret to this. (background yelling) – [RCSparks] There it is! Good job. Sluice on his way to ten top. – No sir that’s a penalty,
you’re not on your spot. (buzzer sound) – [RCSparks] Oh. – Alright, it’s alright
I’m still in the game. – [RCSparks] Penalty, yes.
He was not on his spot, required to ask for a tile, making it as fair as
possible for everybody. Back he goes, Cody is watching diligently to make sure that he does
not go past the line. – Good (loud whirring) (crowd mumbling) – (mumbling) that’s shitty. – This lift creeps forward (mumbles) – Oh great. – [RCSparks] Oh nice! – I whooped butt with that
forklift last week so (laughs) (crowd yelling) (buzzer sounds) – [RCSparks] Clear penalty! Clear penalty. And of course Trent
finishing his. Back to work! Sluicebox Steve, back
at it. Try number three. (loud whirring) (laughter) – [RCSparks] Great job! – Nine bottom – [RCSparks] (laughing) Oh man. These guys battling back and forth. (truck whirring) – [RCSparks] Trent is on his way. Joe resetting Sluice’s forklift. – I think he likes it – [RCSparks] I think he’s over there… – I don’t like the penalty. – [RCSparks] (laughter) – I like it but I don’t (mumbles) – [RCSparks] (laughter) – Can I get a tile, please? (forklift whirring) – [RCSparks] A challenging one to be sure – Come on Sluice! – [RCSparks] These things
have to get loaded up and out of here boys,
customers are waiting. (crowd cheering and clapping) – You can’t get paid if
you don’t ship it out. – [RCSparks] Look at that. Meticulously planning his movements. (buzzer sound) (crowd shouting) – [RCSparks] Was it over the line? You guys are being unrelenting! – You can’t put a fork through the wall. – [RCSparks] No you can’t. Look at that! Nice! Penalty! (buzzer sound) – [RCSparks] That’s a
raised forks there man. – Is that over two? Oh,
yeah that’s over two. – [RCSparks] He didn’t stop at the top He didn’t stop at the top. (crowd debating) – Sluice can take his time
doing the penalty now. – [RCSparks] He can
that would be (mumbling) – Because Trent’s in line. – [RCSparks] That would
be a good strategy. – [Cody] Good. – This is a great penalty, these guys are loving this penalty. – Give me a tile man, give
me an easy one please. (laughter) – [RCSparks] You forget
where you are (laughs) – Eight bottom. – [RCSparks] Away he goes. Trent is there. I noticed no one’s touched
the Volvo trucks yet. – No – Don’t worry Steve I will judge you. – [RCSparks] Yeah – I know I am. – [RCSparks] Yeah, they continue with their challenging forklifts. Oh! That is a challenge! – Do we have a rule about
dragging forks when we drive? – [RCSparks] When you’re
driving it’s okay, it was only on the ramps. It may not look pretty, but it does shave them
down to an easier size. – (mumble) sharp. – [RCSparks] Yeah. – Was that bottom or top, Tile Master? – Sir, that was bottom. – [RCSparks] Oh, well done. – You need a tile? – [RCSparks] Following the rules to a T. – Oh you know I like the penalty. – [RCSparks] No one’s at
the penalty zone right now. – You got a penalty. – Sorry, sorry my bad. (crowd mumbling) – [RCSparks] What? – (mumbling) – [RCSparks] Who? (crowd uproar) – [RCSparks] Trent! Nice. – That qualifies for the multiplier. – [RCSparks] Well he
already got the multiplier. He got a multiplier on there. (high tone whistle) – [RCSparks] Good luck. So, these dudes in there. – Have fun with that one. – [RCSparks] Yeah – Doing business in there. – [RCSparks] Yeah – Trading tickets – [RCSparks] (laughter) – How do I want to do this? – [RCSparks] Good luck. I wish I could help you out here bro. (Trent sighs) – Sluice buddy I hate to tell you this, but that’s a penalty. That
is not the right rack. (buzzer sound) – [RCSparks] No! (crowd uproar) – Not ten bottom – It’s supposed to be
eight, you’re on ten. (RCSparks exclaiming) – You should’ve waited
until it was on his truck. – [RCSparks] No, as soon as he pulled it that’s when it was. Yeah,
Tile Master can call it. Oh my God. Oh. That’s killing him. You know there are people
unsubscribing right now. – Yeah, probably. (laughter) – I didn’t want to do it, I had to do it. – [RCSparks] I know it’s
part of the written rule man. – (mumble) can’t say anything either – [RCSparks] Yeah, nope. – Well he can’t help until it’s too late. – [RCSparks] Oh, this
could be very interesting with the result here. – Keep coming, you’re good. (mechanical whirring) – [RCSparks] Oh, interesting.
This is very good. Sluicebox Steve already
done that easy penalty. (crowd uproars) – [RCSparks] Fired! (more crowd uproars) – [RCSparks] Sluice you win! (fireworks exploding) (audience cheering) – [RCSparks] Oh my god. Oh
good try. What happened? Can I tell you what happened?
You lifted it too high! That’s a common mistake that we see. – You fucked up, bud. – [RCSparks] (mumbling) – Thank you so much, Trent. – [RCSparks] Yeah! You finally did it. Congratulations man, bump that up. – I didn’t even hit one pallet. – [RCSparks] Great job.
Well, that’s the way it can be anyone’s game.
It can be anyone’s game. – Anybody’s game. – [RCSparks] Anyone’s game. That’s why we have the
rules written the way we do. Is that right? – Sometimes shit happens – [RCSparks] That’s right, you know? – So, I didn’t see a multiplier
get on this team’s trailer. – [RCSparks] I did not see
a multiplier on the trailer. Nothing there! Oh man. – But, you got the wheel. – Oh well you were kicking me arse. – [RCSparks] You do get
the wheel there king. Rules are rules man.
Sometimes you tune in into HBO you see a one minute knockout,
that’s just the way it goes. (laughter) – [RCSparks] Good try Trent. You’re going to probably try
again one of these days, yeah? – Of course! – [RCSparks] Of course, man. – (mumbles) it all went to hell. – [RCSparks] Now you get a shot. Here you gotta take that hat off. – You gotta wear the crown. – [RCSparks] You get your crown, bro. Loading King for the day. Good Job! (crowd exclaims) – [RCSparks] Here we go! – Get the spin, eh? – [RCSparks] Dude, if you get… Now, be careful. Because
there is, what is it? – No, we don’t want those S-O-L’s – [RCSparks] No, man you don’t. You wanna make sure it goes around once, weak spins are usually boo-ed. Spin it around let’s see
what you get man, good luck! – Let’s put it right in
between those S-O-L’s – [RCSparks] Yeah! Here we go! (crowd cheering) – [RCSparks] What did you get? (crowd screaming) – [RCSparks] You’re kidding me! – One hundred dollars! – One hundred dollars! – One hundred bucks! – [RCSparks] Dude, you
finally did it! Yes! – I don’t get the damn multiplier. – [RCSparks] Dude! Obviously,
fear is not a factor for you – Oh wait wrong show. – [RCSparks] But you
did it! Good job buddy! Hey, your luck has changed.
Congratulations King. You did it. Let’s play another round! (crowd cheering) – Dude, how does it feel
to be the first person to win one hundred dollars
on the wheel of fortune on Loading Kings? – Awesome, man. I called it. I said I was going to put
it between the S-O-L’s – [RCSparks] Man, good luck. – Let’s put it between the two S-O-L’s – [RCSparks] Yeah, here
we go! What did you get? (crowd cheering) – That’s where it went. – You did. Anybody’s game
at any point in time. Hey, you did the penalties. You probably did more penalties than… – I did six – You did six penalties and he still won! Thanks to everybody watching! Hopefully, you guys enjoyed the show. Leave a like click, we’ll
see you in the next episode! Bye for now! (laughs)

Top 5 Nastiest Rivalries in Sports – EXPLAINED!

Ninh explains the Top 5 Nastiest Rivalries
in All of Sports Everyone has witnessed some heated rivalries
in their favourite sports. But there are some that are more than just
mutual disdain. In some cases, these particular rivals go
out of their way to hurt their opponents in one form or another. Here are the top 5 nastiest rivalries in all
of sports. #5 Most of the NHL. In a sport where fighting is tolerated and
vicious hits encouraged, it’s no surprise that many teams have a problem with each other. Whenever a rivalry happens, tensions are high
and martial justice is doled literally every few seconds. So who hates each other in the NHL? How about Ottawa/Toronto, Toronto/Montreal,
Montreal/Boston, New York Rangers/Boston, New York Islanders/Boston, EVERYBODY/Boston,
Chicago/Detroit, Detroit/Colorado, Washington/Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh/Philadelphia and most notably:
all 32 teams and Gary Bettman. Just turn the TV onto any NHL game and you’ll
most likely find a team playing someone they absolutely hate. #4 The State of Origin
It’s state vs state. Mate vs Mate. The State of Origin is a series of annual
exhibition rugby league games played between players from NSW and Queensland in Australia. This results in the unique scenario of teammates
of a professional team going up against each other in the State of Origin. What’s so bad about the State of Origin? Well apart from the two areas of Australia
vying for rugby supremacy – it’s basically a brawl disguised as a rugby game. The whole MO is to basically hurt your opponents
as much as possible and pretend that you’re actually playing by the rules. Vicious tackles, punches thrown and pummeling
anyone that’s wearing a different coloured jersey, is basically the bread and butter
skill of these games. And this results in … well, it results in
something like this. And it’s fantastic. #3 Galatasaray vs Fenerbace
What happens when most of Turkey supports one of two football teams? And then what happens when both teams are
the most successful in the country, mostly winning their titles and cups against their
direct rival? You get this fixture. What makes this nasty isn’t necessarily
the play on the field, but the fans off it. The Turkish people are masters of intimidating
opposing players and fans. Whether it’s through fireworks, fancy displays,
chanting mercilessly at opposing players in their hotel rooms or just trying to murder
you in the street. Crowd violence and fans being stabbed or killed
for wearing the wrong shirt is quite normal and this has unfortunately resulted in opposing
fans not being able to enter their rivals stadium. They call Galatasaray’s stadium ‘hell’
for a reason. #2 India vs Pakistan
Cricket is usually seen as a gentlemen’s game. But not when these two are concerned. It’s no secret that India and Pakistan absolutely
hate each other, and the political tensions of the two countries are certainly well documented. Rather than go at war with each other (again),
they fight each other on the cricket pitch instead. There’s a political agenda every time these
two teams meet, and should they experience defeat, the player’s lives are at risk from
extremists threatening to kill them if they lose. It’s gotten so bad, that the Indian Government
has prohibited their own players from going into Pakistan for fear of their cricketers
being murdered. Lots of intimidation between players, dirty
behavior, questionable tactics and plenty of sweet chin music, all to get an edge to
win the game. And the pressure to win this particular fixture
is biblical. Ticket requests for this fixture far surpass
any other, and when they faced each other during the 2011 World Cup in India, a 1/5th
of the world’s population tuned in to watch. Should they ever meet in an actual World Cup
final, I guarantee you that all hell will break loose. #1 Boca Juniors vs River Plate. The nastiest rivalry by far is between Argentina’s
two most popular and successful football teams. Boca Juniors & River Plate. They’re both based in the same city, and
similar to the Galatasary vs Fenerbace rivalry, most of the country supports either one or
the other. Players fear for their lives and take their
own safety into their own hands, because the fans, are complete animals that are seriously
out of control. These fans routinely throw flares and objects
at opposing players (including sometimes human excrement) and in a couple of famous cases,
they use pepper spray and tear gas to try and injure the players as they’re walking
out onto the field. That’s just the fans, who by the way, also
have a penchant of stabbing each other in the street. And I’ve not even started about the foul
play on the field. It’s pretty nasty to watch. The fixture is so dangerous for both players
and spectators, that matches are heavily enforced by police and in the famous case of the 2018
Copa Libertadores, they had to abandon the match and play it 6,500 miles away in Spain
because it became too dangerous to play the game in Argentina. Honorable mention goes to the Red Sox vs Yankees
rivalry, the two cities generally don’t like each other and neither do their baseball
teams. Rangers vs Celtic – the Glasgow rivalry
that’s started with a difference of religion and now they hate each other just because
it’s fun. And the Ohio State Buckeyes vs the Michgan
State Wolverines, though it’s been pretty one sided recently. These are what I believe to be the nastiest
rivalries in sports. And I could have mentioned more, but what
do you think? Do you think there are any that are nastier? Have you experienced more hatred than this? Let me know in the comments section below

and $17,000, with interest rates
between 10% and 30%, -which means 30%.

already getting jacked. -Right. And they want to–
Uh, it’s like a new loan sh– It’s weird. Go ahead. I’m sorry.
I’m getting worked up. -I… -But it-it’s, like,
pr-priorities, right? Like, this is where we are
in America with priorities. You– If you have to get a loan to get Super Bowl tickets,
you’re an idiot. You understand.
No, for real, for real. Like, let me just tell you
where we are in America, right? I w– I watch TV1 in New York, and I watch, uh,
the Discovery Channel. So, on TV1, I watch–
there was a report that says one in ten kids in New York City
is homeless and has no idea where they’re
gonna get their next meal. And then I turn
to the Discovery Channel and I watched a turtle
get a ultrasound. Like, what-what are we doing?! -Yeah.
-What are we doing as a coun– -I mean, I know, like…
-(cheering and applause) But you know what I mean?

-He’s never gone once. I get–
I get a state or two away, and then I just enjoy the game
from a local bar. -State or two away.
-And, you know– -So, there-there’s ways, David.
-Yeah. If you don’t have enough money, maybe don’t go
to the Super Bowl. -Like, it’s on TV.
-Yeah. And who cares what the halftime show–
Shakira and J. Lo. It’s, like, just–
It’s elderly Latina women. Just go to a grocery store.
You’ll see ’em. -Go to the grocery store?
-Yeah. That’s– They’re there. Five grand for a seat in
San Francisco, that’s nothing. -That’s crazy. -Like,
five grand in Kansas City, I-I– -that’s, like,
a whole block of houses. -Yeah. So I get that that’s,
like, a big difference. San Francisco people,
they-they deserve that. They deserve to get ripped off. They’re-they’re rich snobs
up there. -They’re all rich… -They offer
tickets for any event. So I don’t want
to get my legs broken ’cause I had to see
Foreigner’s final tour, -you know what I mean?
-Yeah. I don’t think it’s worth it.
All right. Oh, yeah. By the way,
if you don’t pay, they send this guy to your door. Gritty! -He’s back. He’s a callback.
-(cheering and applause) He’s like, “How was
Paul McCartney?” Doosh, doosh. All right. Machu Picchu is having, uh… to up their security with drones because so many people
are going number two at the top of the hike. -(groaning)
-This is happening at Runyon a lot, too. Uh… They’re also changing the name
of the park to “Machu Poopoo.” -That’s not true.
-(laughter) That cannot be true. That sounds like a joke. -Um, I think the drones are not
actual size, I hope. -Yeah. (laughter) -I’m-I’m all in support of this.
-SPADE: Oh, good. Okay. This is great. Yeah.
I’m in a travel group. -We’re doing this very thing.
-DILLON: Yeah. We’re going… We’re gonna… We want to go
to the Taj Mahal and throw up, and we’re going to, um… -(laughter)
-SPADE: And throw up. And we’re gonna go (bleep)
at the Colosseum. -That’s, like, our last stop.
-SPADE: Excuse me! -Yeah, I’m excited.
-(applause) This is exactly what people
think American tourists do. -Yeah.
-Like, that’s what’s funny. They’ll say it metaphorically, like, “Oh, they just shit
on everything.” It’s like,
“No, really, they do.” -(laughter) -SPADE: Yeah.
-They-they genuinely do. But what are the drones
supposed to do? I mean, are they gonna
bring them toilet paper? Like, you know, it’s like,
“What are you catching me do? “I’m shitting in nature. -That’s what happens, okay?”
-SANTINO: Yeah, it’s true. The Charmin bear is out there
shitting all over trees. -(laughter)
-DILLON: Right, right, right. -And he got commercials.
-DILLON: Yeah. -Yeah.
-(applause and cheering) They’re like RoboCop.
They’re like, “Pooper. Pooper.” It’s just PornHub sponsored
these. This is all… That’s, like, shit porn.
That’s all that is. SPADE:
Yeah, that’s all it is. You want to see someone shit
on Machu Picchu? -Oh, yeah.
-Actually, isn’t it amazing…? Wouldn’t it be amazing
if you could show, like,
the ancient Mayas this photo of the drone
and the little poop? They’d be like,
“Whoa, the future is crazy!” I was in a real bathroom,
like, like, at a restaurant. This is stupid,
but it was, like, a regular one, not just a one-hitter.
It was, like, a big one. And I go in, and the guy’s
coming out of the stall, and I go, “Rough!” -You know, ’cause
it was horrible. -DILLON: Yeah. And he goes, “(bleep) you,
dude.” I go, “Oh!” Like, we were gonna get
in a fight, and I thought, this is the weirdest way
to get in a fight. I wasn’t… -That’s so weird. -Yeah, isn’t
that weird? We got in a… I… -He’s defending that
it wasn’t rough? -DILLON: Yeah. -I know. I go, “Rough, dude.”
-Yeah. -My shits are chill. -Yeah, yeah.
-Yeah, bro? I’m a chill shitter.

How A Blind Person Follows And Enjoys Sports

Sports! People are always wondering
do you like sports? Are you a fan
and who do you follow? Yes, I do, I enjoy sports a lot. I’m a baseball fan,
a giant baseball fan. I’m a baseball fan,
a giant baseball fan. I root for the
New York Metropolitans. I love the Mets. When you go to the game live, When you go to the game live, how do follow the game? See, that’s tricky ’cause
I have to go with somebody who’s like my brother-in-law he’s great to go
to a ball game with ’cause he’ll do the
play-by-play and stuff and because I know
the Mets very well and the other team,
you pay attention to lineup and you know who’s
coming to bat and stuff. That’s the way I get to enjoy it live and it’s just fun to be there. It’s great to be there. What games are really hard
to follow on television? See like tennis isn’t very interesting
for me on television or golf isn’t terribly
interesting on television you know what I mean? But I don’t care for those
games to much anyway but Not like baseball
or basketball or hockey. How did you follow sports
when you were a kid? How did you follow sports
when you were a kid? I didn’t,
I didn’t really understand it. Well I did, I followed basketball
and hockey when I was a kid because they were
on WNBC in New York and Marv Albert did both
the Knicks and the Rangers and so instantly I was a
fan because of Marv Albert. As a kid in the ’70s right and this guy was just
killing it on the radio. In those days, I think
they did radio and TV at the same time. But then I discovered
baseball in the ’80s when the Mets were
starting to turn it around in like 1984, ’85. And I really got into it,
and then I was hooked. On the radio is the best. It’s fun going to
a sporting event with you because you pick up on different things in the event. Yep. That refocuses what
I would pay attention to. One of the things that stood
out to me was the crowd. When we went to
the football game. Exactly. Yep. Somebody takes a major hit. Yeah, you just hear
the whole place go, “ooh!” It’s sort of that thing
if you’ve ever like in a bar It’s sort of that thing
if you’ve ever like in a bar while there’s been football
or American football or soccer or any
kind of thing like that. The whole place just
groans at the same time and it’s marvelous. What sports have you learned to play or tried at least once? I’ve done baseball. I did golf Little basketball? Basketball, yup, that’s right. Shooting? Fast draw shooting. Anything else
that we didn’t film? That we’ve not filmed? No, I don’t think so. Archery? I got a list of sports here. Bowling, have
you ever tried bowling? Oh bowling, I’ve done many times. Certainly as kids and stuff. My worse day at bowling
ever was like a three. In 10 frames of bowling,
I got the first ball and that was it. I just couldn’t do it. I can never keep my wrist straight. I can’t get that action,
you know what I mean? I don’t think I’ve
ever broken a hundred but if we put up little
bumpers, I’m much better. Badminton? No. or table tennis,
that kind of thing? or table tennis,
that kind of thing? Ping pong, yeah. We had a ping pong
table growing up so I would play with it but I always like to check out
other people playing. It’s a wonderful game to listen to just the sound of it. Yoga? If that’s a sport. Have you ever tried yoga? No. I think, you know because I’ve started
to run now and stuff and I’m in much different shape
than I used to be so I think yoga would be
a nice addition to it. What about surfing? Surfing. Ever tried it? Never, I’ve done body surfing. Hockey? Hockey, we used to like like I can skate a little bit. Well I could, I don’t know
if I could anymore but when I was a kid, I could. What about karate volleyball, anything like that? No, nope, nope, none of those. Fishing? Yes, I’ve fished! Yes, I have! Yeah, with my dad and a couple
times going fishing. Yeah, with my dad and a couple
times going fishing. I never really caught
anything but it’s fun just the togetherness of it all just the togetherness of it all being out of the water. Right, just hanging out. Yep. That’s a nice bonding
moment with dad. Yeah, it’s great. The old man. The old man. Did you ever try to bait the hook? No. That’s a little dangerous. Yeah, that would be
pretty scary, I think. That’s what,
that’s a six pack in probably? Maybe 9 or 10 beers. That’s like the end
of the fishing trip. I wanna try it now. Come on, let me give it a shot. On land when there’s no point to it. Subscribe to the podcast

The Rules of Flickerball – THE WORST SPORT EVER INVENTED!

Ninh explains, the Rules of Flickerball.
The object of the game is to score more points than the opposing team.
The game is played on a field that’s …. Erm … it can be any size field?
That can be of any size, and is played between two teams of … and there can be any number
of players? A minimum of two players per team. The ball
used in Flickerball can be an American Football, a soccer ball, a rugby ball, a dodgeball … basically
any ball will do. The game starts with a jump ball. The team
that receives the ball must only pass backwards or laterally initially. There are two ways
to move the ball towards the goal. You may move only three steps forward with
the ball, or be in possession of the ball whilst moving backwards or sideways for a
maximum of 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, you must either pass to a teammate or shoot the
ball towards the goal. To score points you must throw the ball into
the goal. These goals are situated at opposite ends of the field, and are 6ft above the ground.
They’re basically a piece of plywood with a hole cut out of the middle. I shit you not.
If you cannot afford a piece of plywood, using a stolen tire from your nearest ghetto is
acceptable. If you successfully shoot the ball into the
hole, this is a goal and is worth 2 points. And, if you miss the hole, but hit the plywood
surround – this is worth 1 point. The game is played in either one 40 minute
period, or two 20 minute halves. Highest score at the end of time, wins.
That’s not so bad? Well, sadly the rules get more complicated.
Any attempt at shooting at the goal results in the ball being awarded to the other team.
Whilst you are allowed to pass the ball to a teammate, if a pass is incomplete and not
caught, the ball is awarded to the other team. If a pass is deflected by a member of the
opposing team, it’s a free ball and anyone can take possession of it.
You cannot pass or shoot the ball in the free throw lane, which is apparently this area
here. If the ball leaves the area of play, the ball
is awarded to the team who did not touch it last.
Flickerball is designed to complicated. Flickerball is designed so that rules are
more important than the actual game itself. Flickerball is designed to be no fun whatsoever.
Flickerball is designed to suck. Designed. To Suck.
So why on earth would you play this game? The US Air force uses flickerball as a military
training exercise. They use it to evaluate cadets in stressful, confusing and high pressure
situations. All of which are present in this game due to its complicated rules, odd structure
of play, and the lack of consistency in both the rules and the format. Every move you make
on the field, is being evaluated by your superiors and should you suck at the sport that sucks,
this will reflect badly in your evaluations. No pressure then.
There’s just a few other things you’ll need to know before playing or watching Flickerball.
For example. Fouls.
Flickerball is a no contact sport, and these are considered as fouls.
Should you break one of the rules, a free throw is awarded to the other team at the
spot of the foul. Even swearing and protesting calls are considered
as fouls. Fuck. Heckling.
Members of the team who aren’t on the field (and any spectators watching) are allowed
to hurl abuse towards the players. This results in harsh American insults such as …
The players are not allowed to retaliate, doing so will result in a foul and the ball
is awarded to the other team. Variations.
Flickerball is not consistently played by the same rules across America. Each region
of the United States has its own variation of the rules. Some play with a three point
line, some play where they can only pass backwards or sideways and
…. Okay this is crazy. I’m not doing anymore. I should have renamed this video. Ninh can’t
explain: the Rules of Flickerball. Actually, yes I can – I just did. Ninh won’t explain
the Rules of Flickerball … because this sport is just shit stupid.

– [Ben] Yeah, if you got a good one, @TommyEdisonXP. So you wanna hear? – Yes please! – [Ben] I wanted to ask you,
did you see on Twitter– – Which, oh! – [Ben] This week, there was
that guy, Narrowboat Dan. – Yes, this is so cool. So he tweeted and he heard
himself in the intro to the show. We actually used a clip
of him saying my name, and he caught it. It was awesome, and there’s a couple other YouTubers in there as well, there’s even a giant
YouTuber in the front, so. – [Ben] Yeah, the opening
with all the different sound bites, the big introduction. All those different pieces
of audio, yep, there’s… And he noticed himself in there. And he’s great, he’s from
Oswestry in the UK, in England. Right in the Northwest,
what, about 3 1/2 hours northwest of London, and he’s
lovely, so thank you for that. And thanks for being a
part of the intro as well. – [Ben] Yeah, we found his video. He made a video talking about Tommy and we really liked the way
he talked about the channel and the way he talked about Tommy here. This is the sound bite. – [Narrowboat Dan] The
Tommy Edison Experience. – [Ben] That’s the sound bite
you heard in the opening. – That’s the one, yep. That’s like the last thing. – [Ben] So we grabbed it,
used a bunch of sound bites and put it in there, he’s the
first guy to recognize it. – Yeah, which I didn’t
think was gonna be the case, I didn’t know who was
gonna be first, but I mean it was awesome, and there’s
a giant one in there as well. – [Ben] Yeah, so I wanna see
if people can figure out– – Yep.
– [Ben] Who the giant YouTuber is in the open, can you
recognize his voice? Here’s another sound bite from Dan, this is Narrow Dan. – Narrowboat Dan. – [Ben] Narrowboat Dan, cool channel too. – It’s a great channel
and he’s a lovely guy. I saw a video of him turning
on the Christmas lights in Oswestry, it was
wonderful, it was so great, and just the way he produced it and stuff, it was a very cool video. – [Narrowboat Dan] The
funny side of being blind. There’s a chap called Tommy. – [Ben] Great accent. – I love the way you talk, sir. – [Ben] So there’s actually
a link to the video that we sampled in the description. – Yep, in the description. – [Ben] So it is the new year,
now does that matter to you? – Not so much. – [Ben] For resolutions and things? – Well, it did though back in 2006. I normally never mess
with that kind of thing. It’s just a night to have fun or whatever, but in 2006, it was on January
2nd when I quit smoking. The last time I ever had a cigarette was New Years Day 2006. So it is kind of special
every year to commemorate that ’cause it was a giant thing
to get rid of in my life, and I’m so proud of that. – [Ben] Congratulations. – Thank you sir. – [Ben] That’s huge. (bell rings)
– Thank you sir, but it’s one of those
accomplishments, do you know what I mean, it’s so
giant and once you do it, when you beat the thing, it’s
like you just feel so good. I’ve been fortunate,
I’ve gotten to do that a couple of times, knock
wood, as I knock on my head. – [Ben] Done that a couple of times. – Yep. – [Ben] Why did you choose that day? – I figured a couple of reasons. New Years Day happened to
fall on a Sunday that year. In 2006, it was on a Sunday. So I figured why, I gotta go
back to work anyway on Monday. I like to start things on a Monday, and besides I’ll probably
be hungover over all day on New Years anyway and
not being able to smoke just makes it so much more worse. – [Ben] Yeah. – Wait, (mumbles) sorry, about
my syntax, I just lost it. So much worserer, so much
badder, would have been trouble. So I figured I’d quit on the second. So that was what I did and I
just went to work that morning and that was the beginning of my new life. – [Ben] Did you have any bad, bad days? – Oh, I’ve had a couple (laughs). We were at CVS one night. I was like, “Man, maybe I
should get some nicorette “or something like that.” Then I saw what they cost and went, “Oh my God, cigarettes
are so much cheaper. “Why’d you buy that stuff?” But that was it, you just get through it and that was about as
bad as it’s ever got. And you knew me through all that time. – [Ben] Yeah. – We were working
together for heaven sakes. – [Ben] Yeah, I never
saw it to be a problem. – No, it was much easier than
I thought it was gonna be. But, you know I set myself
up for it and really planned for it and stuff and I had
done it once before too. In the late ’90s I took
this drug called Wellbutrin to quit smoking, I did
it on the radio program that I was working on. And that was great but I
had to do it cold turkey, so I could really, you know,
when you take this drug, you don’t really feel, they
just disappear from your life, and you don’t really know why. To do it cold turkey is like they’re consciously doing this thing and you gotta struggle every day. It’s worth it. – [Ben] So that’s a huge thing. – That’s New Years for me. – [Ben] That’s huge, so a
question I’ve seen a lot is people asking, in
terms of the calendar, how do you envision the calendar? What do you see? – I use to have a Braille
calendar when I was a kid. I used to get them every year at school. I always got one and it was just in one of those loose leaf things. And it was just 12 pages
that had S-M-T-W-T-F-S across the top and then just
the numbers down each column and that was what the
calendar looked like. And then down at the bottom,
it had all the holidays and the month and stuff, and so you know– – [Ben] What day of the week it start? – Sunday. – [Ben] Sunday, right. So okay, so it was a grid. – Yeah, kind of and it was
on this little paper too. They’re weren’t very big,
They were small but yep, and that was the Braille
calendar for me anyway. That means back in the Stone Age. – [Ben] Did you ever do those
calendars during the holidays where you have the doors that open? – The advent calendar, sure. Oh, well, if there was
chocolate behind them (laughs). That was what I was into
I didn’t really care. I was more about what was behind the doors than the actually spirit of the thing. Now I understand it better and
get what it is and all that but when you’re a kid,
wasn’t my thing man. – [Ben] What about the idea that there’s a photo
for every month, is it? – Is there really? – [Ben] Yeah, you know there’s– – Yeah there’s the fireman calendars and stuff, and whatever. All different calendars for everything. – [Ben] For everything, different seasons. – Yeah, it’s strange that
you would need all that, I don’t know (laughs)
but people like that. Like it’s a thing and people
write on the calendars and put all the birthdays in it. Do you still do that? – [Ben] Well yeah, you
have them in the phone now. – It’s so easy now, and
you just tell your phone. Hey, it’s Tommy’s birthday. Okay, got you and it’s in there forever. – [Ben] And you used to forget? – Yeah and you don’t remember it anymore. See that’s the problem. Do you still remember
phone numbers, ’cause I do. I remember loads and
loads of phone numbers. – [Ben] No. – I still do. – [Ben] I know them like
my phone number growing up, It’s, a couple of those. – I remember all those
and all the older ones in all the different apartments
and houses and stuff. – [Ben] I forgot your phone number, right? We were doing– – We’re doing something
the other day, he’s like, “What’s your cell?” I was like, “Really?” He remembers the first
six but not the last four. – [Ben] I just push, call Tommy. – Yeah, I know it’s so easy but look how lazy we’ve
gotten Ben, it’s horrible. – [Ben] So you can do this
little trick with the calendar. You’re very good at, when
we’re talking about dates in advance that you can figure
out what day of the week a certain date is. – A lot, sometimes, I’m not an expert but sometimes I can sort of get a feel for where it falls in the year and stuff. – [Ben] So right now, what’s today’s date, and this broadcast? January the 15th. – January the 15th, 2020. – [Ben] It’s a Wednesday. – Yep. – [Ben] What day of the week would be, can I ask you February 18th? February 18th. – (humming) Tuesday, right? – [Ben] That is correct. (bell rings) – See, I just have to work
it out fast in my head. – [Ben] Let’s jump real quick, March 26th. – That’s gonna be a Thursday. (bell rings) (audience applauding)
(cheering crowd) (laughing) – [Ben] Last one, May 19th. – Oh shoot, I don’t even know. It’s a Monday, no a Wednesday. Final, I lost. (loud buzzing) Yeah, no good, when is it? – It’s a Tuesday.
– It’s a Tues– – [Ben] Anyways, you’re
really good at that. I wanna point that out. That’s one of those things
you’re really good at doing. – I don’t know, it’s just
’cause I learned weird things like when my birthday is. It’s gonna be on a Friday this year. It’s terrific, I’m very excited. – [Ben] It’s six months away. – So start shopping everybody. Don’t miss out (laughs). – [Ben] How do you notice
how the day changes? What do you notice when the daytime goes to night time and vice versa? – Well, there’s a couple things, right. The heat of the sun goes away
and so I can sort of see that, but then there’s all different
things, like the birds stop making noise and it all
just stops and things just get a bit quieter as businesses
aren’t open and stuff. It’s just night time feels different. Walking around in the middle of the night. When I was a kid, I told you, I was afraid in the middle of the night
because it was so quiet. It used to freak me out. And night, it just sounds
different than day time. – [Ben] Yeah, so if you wake
up in the middle of whatever, one of those moments where
you kind of lose track of time and wake up, and you
don’t check your phone, what are the cues, clues whatever. – That’s great, that’s
a wonderful question. I listen for things outside just to see what’s happening outside. If there’s a lot of activity outside, if there’s people milling about and stuff, it might be eight o’clock
in the morning as folks are getting ready for work
or something like that. The birds will also tip me off. If it’s quiet, I really don’t
know, I’m sort of confused but if it’s sort of noisy, I
figured it’s like it’s eight, nine in the morning, somewhere in there. Like the garbage trucks
and stuff as well, right, coming through making a racket,
that sort of lets you know. – [Ben] Yeah, recently
you told me a story. How is it going with the,
you had broken some glass. – I did. – [Ben] Have you found anymore? What’s going on with that,
have you hurt yourself? (laughing) – No, this was great! So I didn’t know what to do,
I had no idea what to do. I broke a glass on Christmas Day. I’ve broken them before,
but into the sink or in the dishwasher and stuff,
you know somewhere contained, but this one was a glass
of water and it just fell and it just went. And I was like, “Oh man,
what am I gonna do?” So the first thing I
decided to do was get… I had no shoes on, I
was just wearing socks. So I have these giant rubber
oven mitts that are terrific. I can take anything out of the stove and not having to worry
about burning my hands. So I use those to pick up pieces of glass and then go over to the
garbage and like that. And I grabbed as much big stuff as I could and then I had to go for it. I went and got shoes and
then grabbed the dust buster and just went around and
grabbed as much as I could. And oh and then what I did
was I took my stick, my cane, and opened it up and
spread it on the floor. So it’s 60 inches long and I just swept and swept all the glass
right towards a doorway, and that was how I could
find the big pieces, all the rest of the bigger pieces. And I did pretty well until Ben came over and he was the first
person to come over since, and he had a look, and
I was like how do I do? He goes, “I found one piece of glass.” – [Ben] It was two inches big. – Yup, but it was scary. I didn’t know what to
do, but using my cane I thought was pretty
smart, and I’ve done that subsequently to find things. It’s a good tool to have around the house. – [Ben] Are you bare foot again? – No, socks. – Still?
– Yeah. – [Ben] So you’re not 100%? – [Ben] No, I think it’s
probably pretty good through but I’m still going around in socks. – [Ben] Well, you’ll find out, won’t you? – (laughs) I’ll find out the hard way. – [Ben] Oh, that’s great. – Then it will be Tommy’s
first aid experience I’ll be able to tell you about. – [Ben] How long did it
take you to clean it up? – Probably 45 minutes,
30, 45 minutes, something. ‘Cause I sat panicked for
a while at first, you know, trying to figure out what to do. – [Ben] What were the things
going through your mind? – I was like, “I am stuck. “What am I gonna do? “Happy Christmas everybody.” It was my first alone Christmas and this is how I was
celebrating. (laughing) – [Ben] It sounds sad. – It fun, I was having a nice
time until I broke the glass and then it just sort of went south. And then I just figured it
out and was like, all right, the oven mitts, and then I was like, “Oh the cane will be brilliant,
let’s just use that.” And that was how I did,
and the dust buster was the final thing. – [Ben] Yeah, I remember you
mentioned you once were opening one of those family-sized bags of M&Ms. – Oh my God, it’s a kilogram of plain M&Ms that they sell at Costco
here in this country. It’s unbelievable. It’s the largest bag
of M&Ms I’ve ever seen. A full 2.2 pounds of plain
M&Ms, and I opened it and the bag ripped and they
went all over my kitchen. I mean everywhere. I’m sure they probably still finding M&Ms in that kitchen today, I swear to God. It was what a mess, I
did the best I could. It was horrible, and just
all those M&Ms go on. Five second rule is only good for probably a couple of days, I guess
(laughing) and then, no. (laughing) – [Ben] So what did you do
there, you were just…? – Nothing, I just scooped them up. I just looked and scooped, and of course, I never thought
to use my cane at that time. And you remember that
kitchen too in that apartment in Bridgeport, it was tiny. So it was all pretty
much contained in there. – [Ben] Oh okay. – That’s why I’m saying there’s, under appliances and things
like that, but it was great. 2.2 pounds of M&Ms just gone one shot. – [Ben] All right, sports. – Sports. – [Ben] People are always
wondering do you like sports? Are you a fan and who do you follow? – Yes, I do, I enjoy sports a lot. I’m a baseball fan, a giant baseball fan. I root for the New York Metropolitans. I love the Mets, I know. – [Ben] Now you watch, not watch, well no. You do, you watch the games
on TV or listen on the radio. – Yep, I’m– – [Ben] When you go to the game live, how do follow the game? – See, that’s tricky ’cause
I have to go with somebody who’s, like my brother-in-law, He’s great to go to a ball game
with ’cause he’ll do the play-by-play and stuff and
you know, because I know the Mets very well. The other team, you pay
attention to line up and you know who’s
coming to bat and stuff. That’s the way I get to enjoy it live and it’s just fun to be there. It’s great to be there. – [Ben] What games are
really hard to follow on television or radio? On television, I guess. – Hockey is difficult on, I
much prefer hockey on the radio. I think you have to be,
I mean, now I can’t think of the guy’s name, oh shoot. – [Ben] Announcer? – Yeah the best hockey
announcer in the business. He is wonderful. He’s on NBC, he’s terrific, anyway. – [Ben] That guy. – Yeah, you know who I’m talking. – [Ben] Yeah, yeah that guy. – He’s, wonderful adjectives
and stuff, Frank Sales, he’s gonna probably come up with– – [Ben] Frank Slade can work on it. – Frank Slade, the great one. – [Ben] NBC hockey famous announcer. – And I’m just having a moment. Nonetheless, but see like tennis isn’t very interesting
for me on television or golf isn’t terribly
interesting on television, you know what I mean? I don’t care for those
games to much anyway but I like the sound of tennis. It always reminds me of my mother ’cause she was an avid
tennis fan, loved the game. And so, it was on all the time but it never really did anything for me. Not like baseball or basketball or hockey. Or even American football. The football was good last weekend. This weekend ought to
be pretty good as well. It’s been interesting this year and I haven’t checked out
football in a long time. – [Ben] How did you follow
sports when you were a kid? – I didn’t, I didn’t really understand it. Well I did, I followed
basketball and hockey when I was a kid ’cause they
were on WNBC in New York, and Marv Albert did both
the Knicks and the Rangers, and so instantly I was a
fan because of Marv Albert. As a kid in the ’70s right, and this guy was just killing it on the radio. In those days, I think
they did radio and TV at the same time, and
that’s how I got into it. And then I left basketball and hockey then came back to it later on, but then I discovered baseball in the ’80s. You know, when the Mets were
starting to turn it around in like 1984, ’85. And I really got into it,
and then I was hooked. And I just, I love it. On the radio was the best. – [Ben] It’s fun going to
a sporting event with you ’cause you pick up on different sounds or different things in the event. – Yep. – [Ben] That refocuses what
I would pay attention to. One of the things that stood
out to you was the crowd. – Oh yeah. – [Ben] Crowd reaction to things. – Yep, when I went to the football game. – [Ben] Exactly. (laughing) Somebody takes a major hit. – Yeah, you just hear
the whole place go ooh! And it’s sort of that thing
if you’ve ever like in a bar while there’s been football
or American football or soccer or any kind of thing like that. The whole place just
groans at the same time, it’s marvelous. – [Ben] What sports
have you learned to play or tried at least once? – Let’s see, I’ve tried, let me think. I’ve done baseball. I did baseball. I did golf, I did skateboarding. – [Ben] Little basketball? – Basketball, yup, that’s right, yep. – [Ben] Even shooting? – Even shooting. – [Ben] Like fast draw. – Fast draw, shooting. – [Ben] With a gun. – With a real gun. – [Ben] Whoa, that was flagged. – Oh excuse me, (laughs). – [Ben] Oh, it’s all right. We made videos actually
about a lot of those topics, you doing those things, which by the way there’s
playlists for those videos if you care to check the description. What about some other, anything
else that we didn’t film? – That we’ve not filmed? No, I don’t think so. – [Ben] Like archery, I
got a list of sports here. – Okay. – [Ben] Bowling, have
you ever tried bowling? – Oh bowling, I’ve done many times. Certainly as kids and
stuff, I did bowling. My worse day at bowling
ever was like a three. In 10 frames of bowling,
I got up to first ball and that was it. I just couldn’t do it. I can never keep my wrist straight. I can’t get that action,
you know what I mean? So I don’t think I’ve
ever broken a hundred but if we put up little
bumpers, I’m much better. – [Ben] Archery, no? You skipped over that one? – I probably tried it once somewhere but it’s wasn’t terribly memorable. – [Ben] Badminton or…? – No. – [Ben] Table tennis, that kind of thing? – Ping pong, yeah. We had a ping pong table growing up so I would play with it but
I always like to check out other people playing. It’s a wonderful game to listen
to, just the sound of it. – [Ben] What about yoga? If that’s a sport, I guess. Have you ever tried yoga? – No, I probably should. – [Ben] There’s a huge
here in Santa Monica. – I know, it’s giant
and I’d love to try it. I would absolutely love to try it. I think ’cause I’ve started
to run now and stuff, and I’m in much different
shape than I used to be, so I think yoga would be
a nice addition to it. – [Ben] What about surfing? – Surfing. – [Ben] Ever tried it? – Never, I’ve done body surfing. Hockey we used to, I
can skate a little bit. Well I could, I don’t
know if I could anymore but when I was a kid, I could. – [Ben] Ice skating? – Yeah, yep! – [Ben] For a game? – I don’t know if I can do it in a game but just to skate, you
know, be on the ice. – [Ben] What about karate,
volleyball, anything like that? – No, nope, nope, none of those. – [Ben] Fishing? – Yes, I’ve fished, yes, I have! – [Ben] You have fished? – With my dad and a couple
times going fishing. I never really caught
anything but it’s fun, just the camaraderie, the
togetherness of it all, being out of the water. – [Ben] Right, just hanging out. That’s a nice bonding moment with dad. – Yeah, it’s great, the old man. – [Ben] The old man. (laughs) Did you ever try to bait the hook? – No. – [Ben] That’s a little dangerous. – Yeah, that would be
pretty scary, I think. – [Ben] That’s a six pack in probably. (laughs) – Maybe nine or 10 beers. That’s like the end of the fishing trip. I wanna try it now. Come on, let me give it a shot. – [Ben] On land, so
there’s no point to it. (laughs) – Oh man. – [Ben] There’s a
question in the chat room that keeps flying by, wanna ask you. – Yes. – [Ben] What’s the worst
accident you’ve ever had due to your blindness? – That’s a great question. The worst accident, I
mean I’ve been injured. You know, I’ve hurt myself. One time, in my backyard,
I stepped on a, no, I felt something and I reached down and picked up a bee and he stung me. I was like, “Woo.” I’ve stepped on them before. I’ve guess the worst
one, I don’t even know. If you could see would
this have been prevented? A bird one time, on my head and I ran into the
house just freaking out. I was like, “Oh my God. “I can’t believe what just happened!” – [Ben] That doesn’t sound very painful. – No, it’s not terribly
painful but I’ve hurt myself. I’ve walked into things. Those little bicycle racks
that they have around here. Those things hurt. – [Ben] They’re metal. – Yeah and they’re very uncomfortable. I hit one about a week and a half ago and I’m still feeling it. – [Ben] Oh, yeah. It’s the idea that you’re
going five miles per hour and you’re not expecting it. – No, it’s the last thing I
expect, do you know what I mean? And so, I’ve learned where they are now. I know where to avoid and stuff. There’s all kinds of things to learn when you learn a new area. And you never stop learning, right? ‘Cause things change, people move things! But yeah, those things are, whoo, I don’t like those things too much at all. Sometimes pillars and tops
of things that the stick doesn’t catch, that’s
something that’s up higher. But yeah, there’s all
kinds of ways to get hurt. But I’m very careful and I generally keep my right hand out in front of me as I walk to try to protect my face and stuff. That’s a difficult thing. I can’t really go shopping
anywhere unless I wrap it around my wrist, you know the
bag, the handle of the bag. That’s it ’cause I need that hand upfront. – [Ben] Backpack. – I never even though of that, yeah sure. – [Ben] Yeah. – Yeah, all right. – [Ben] I’m big into the backpack myself. – Are you? – [Ben] Yeah, that’s right. – Nice, all right. (bell rings) Oh, what does that bell mean? – [Ben] You know what that sound means? – Does that sound mean is
it time for our friend, the can of questions? – [Ben] Here we go. – Oh let me see. This is our can of questions
ladies and gentlemen. It’s a real can with real questions inside that have been asked by you, and these are just some
of the more odd ball, maybe esoteric, off the
beaten path questions. Oh, there’s lots in
here now, this is great! And I will just take one of these out. I will hand it this way to Ben Churchill. – [Ben] Thank you. – You know what’s cool
about Ben Churchill? You can’t see him and
neither can I (laughs). – [Ben] Hey. – Come on, nothing? – [Ben] Hi oh!
– Hi oh! – [Ben] I think I actually asked this one. Do you know and use
American sign language? – Yeah, we did do that one. Shoot, I should probably dig in again– – [Ben] Do you know what the answer was? – The answer was I’ve
learned a little bit. We did a video with our
friend Ricky Pointer and she taught me a few basic things but I couldn’t really tell you anything. You know what I mean? I don’t remember, I’d have
to watch the video and see. – [Ben] The second question here. – Second question. – [Ben] What are your thoughts on glow-in-the-dark
objects and blacklight? – Blacklight is the thing that
you can see everything in. When you show blacklight, for example, on a hotel remote control. Isn’t that the thing that
they show you on the, “Tonight at six, we show you
what’s in your hotel room! “The uninvited guest in your
hotel room, tonight at six.” Right, that’s all blacklight, right? – [Ben] Yeah. You can see all the schmutz. – [Ben] Yeah and when
you’re out in college, and you wanna have all
your neon posters light up. – Yeah. Oh yeah, right, sure! – [Ben] And everything white. People’s teeth look weird. That’s an interesting
thing about blacklight. But what’s your thoughts on it? – I don’t know, I guess it’s cool. You guys seem to get a big kick out of it so for me, it doesn’t make any difference. And glow-in-the-dark is
not really bright enough where I could have ever seen it, but like those glow sticks
and stuff at raves and things. But yeah, I don’t know. – [Ben] Doesn’t really mean much to you. – It doesn’t, it doesn’t really do much. My cane is reflective, right,
it’s not glow-in-the-dark, it’s more reflective. – [Ben] That’s right, reflective. – Yeah yeah yeah. – [Ben] You actually have
glow-in-the-dark fidget spinner sitting in front of you. – I do?
– [Ben] Yeah. – Oh that’s fantastic. – [Ben] It’s one that was sent to us. Oh I love this, it’s glow-in-the-dark. – [Ben] Yep. – Bring back the old times, doesn’t it? Spinning the old fidget spinner. – [Ben] The blacklight would actually, just to give you an idea, in college if you had those neon posters, and the funny thing was
when you turned it on and you turn on all the other lights off and people would smile,
their teeth would stand out. Would light up, almost like– – And that’s very strange. – [Ben] Yeah and their
face was just regular. – Oh you sighted people. – [Ben] Very odd. – The things you get up to (laughs). – [Ben] Hoo ah! – Oh thank you sir, thank you (mumbles) – [Ben] All right,
speaking of that, hoo ah, “The Irishman” received 10 nominations. – Whew! – [Ben] Did you see this? – Wow. – [Ben] Including best picture. You talked about the
film in the last episode. – Yes. – [Ben] But it was nominated
for best picture, director, and supporting actor
Al Pacino and Joe Pesci and a few other things, yeah,
a handful of other things. – Wow. – [Ben] Al Pacino, do you
know that he won his first and only Oscar in 1993
for “Scent of A Woman”. – The first one? – [Ben] Yeah. – All that other stuff? – [Ben] And only one. – Wow, wow, wow, wow wow. – [Ben] Which that movie
came out December 23, 1992. People have always been wondering what you think of that
film because it’s about, what is it about? – Well, it’s about a colonel,
right, an Army colonel who has recently gone blind. He’s lost his sight due to an accident and it’s about how he copes with it and the different challenges
that he has to face and he’s got a bad attitude. How do you describe,
it’s not a bad attitude but he’s just a hard guy. He’s an old colonel. – [Ben] Likes to drink. – Likes to drink, does
enjoy the refreshments. And you know, he’s one tough customer. (laughing) – [Ben] So he teams up
with some young guy, right? – Yep, he was gonna be his assistant, and this guy’s gonna help him
out with day-to-day things. It’s 1992, so you know,
there’s no internet, so you need a heck of
a lot more assistance than you do today. – [Ben] Right, so I think– – It’s a nice story. There’s some great things about this film. I mean Al Pacino is tremendous. – [Ben] What do you, so they
portray him, he’s a blind man. – Right. – [Ben] What do you think,
how do they portray that? – All right, you know, listen
there’s some moments in there that are absolutely lovely. They really are, but some of
the stuff is way over the top. I mean there’s a couple
of scenes that I just, I’m sorry, I just don’t buy it. When he’s dancing, “I
need some coordinates! “Give me some coordinates, kid!” “A 20 by 30, band is over on the right. “You’re gonna be like…”
this and this and this, “Okay, go,” and he dances
perfectly, you know what I mean? Come on, I don’t believe it. Granted, he had the gift of sight. I understand that but still, but still. And then the other one that I found just completely unbelievable
was the driving scene. The driving scene was nuts. – [Ben] He got the Ferrari. – Yep, he got the Ferrari. Now, I love the scene
in the car dealership where he’s trying to get it. (laughs) – [Ben] And he drive around in
the Ferrari for two minutes. – He drives around for 2 1/2 minutes, there’s crazy music behind it. There are so many variables
I can’t even tell. I’ve driven a car, okay, I’ve
driven on highways before, I have, you know. If you want, I’ll tell
you that story in a second but I’ve done it and you
have to be very careful, and you have to know, for example, when I drive a car and
somebody goes, brake. The first thing I do is
smash the pedal to the floor and we all go through,
you know what I mean? You can’t do that, You
gotta go, okay brake, ’cause it’s so gentle, the brake pedal. And now he’s braking and
turning and all this stuff, come on, come on. – [Ben] Yeah, a little silly. – A little bit. But that being said… – [Ben] He won the Oscar. – He did win the Oscar. – [Ben] It’s funny, and
he did the yelling thing. – Yeah, he yelled like crazy in that film. He did some terrific yelling in there. – [DeNiro] Hoo ah! – (laughing) And he was gentle as a lamb. – [DeNiro] Hoo ah. – There he goes, who you
calling that (laughs). – [Ben] I know, watching
some of the clips, honestly, while there are some cheesy I have to say there’s some great moments. – [Deniro] If I was the
man I was five years ago, I’d take a flamethrower to this place. – I love that and you
know what that sound is, I never knew this. That’s him banging his
cane on the counter. – [Ben] Right. – His fold-up, his collapsible
cane which is very cool. Does he have one nearby? – [DeNiro] If I was the
man I was five years ago, I’d take a flamethrower to this place. – See that’s a cane. You can hear the couple pieces, can’t ya? Right, there’s a couple of
different hits, it’s great. – [Ben] Yeah, I know they
layered that from the sound. – Yeah, they did a nice job, well done. – [Man] Well if you like it that much, why don’t you sleep with it? – (laughs) Settle down,
settle down there Mr. Pitt. – [Ben] Yeah well. – [DeNiro] You got me all misty eyed. (laughing) – [Ben] Whatever. – Good luck at the Oscars Al. Good luck, we’ll be thinking about you. – [Ben] The guy who directed that film, do you know he did “Beverly Hills Cop”, “Midnight Run”, “Meet
Joe Black”, and “Gigli?” – He did “Gigli”? – [Ben] Which was the
Ben Affleck, JLo thing. – Jennifer Lopez, yep. – [Ben] 2003 and never did a film since. – Wow, that’s the last film he did? Hoo hoo hoo ah! (laughs) – [Ben] Yeah, hoo ah! – There we go, thank you. – [Ben] Sorry, I was enjoying your own. – That’s all right baby. – [Ben] So blind film critic,
would you give it a rating? For “Scent of a Woman.” – “Scent of a Woman,” there’s
a lot of things to like about it but there’s lot
of things that, I mean, some of the music he uses,
there’s too much music in that film. There’s just too much music. What’d I give “The
Irishman,” one and a half? – [Ben] Yeah. – Okay, see this is what I get stuck in ’cause this is how I think. – [Ben] You’re talking
about the music, the point? – They ruined some scenes with music. There were some lovely
things that were happening and they brought in the music too soon and it took away from the
emotion that you’re feeling in the scene, it was terrible. And then while they’re driving,
I mean it was this crazy (verbalizing music) “dicdicdicdicdic diddlelick
dicdic deedleliddleliddle liddle “maydayrayday dee,” not that,
but you know that piece… Am I gonna get flagged
again for that, sorry. (laughs) – [Ben] Right, you’ve made
this point before where they, you woke me up to this,
you made me aware of this. – Yeah they use the music
to help push the story and sometimes they push it too hard. The most famous one was the
“Spider Man” thing that we did a bunch of years ago for the
Blind Film Critic Review. And they just wow, when
the people who couldn’t act were on screen, there was
music, music, music, music, and when the people that
could act were on screen, it was just as quiet as could
be, and you could just tell. You just knew, I did. – [Ben] Yeah, film by committee. Put some music there,
we’re not sure the audience is gonna filter it. – Let’s test it. – [Ben] Sorry to interrupt but what was for “Scent of a Woman,” what
is your review or rating? – I’m gonna have to go
two and a half Eyes Open. – [Ben] Out of what? – Out of four. – [Ben] Two and a half. – Yeah.
– [Ben] Beautiful. – Yeah, I think that’s about right, right? – [Ben] Yeah. – ‘Cause there’s really
some warm spots in there. There’s some great things. As a blind person, I’m a
little come on, come on, unbelievable, but it’s a fun ride. It’s a fun journey and stuff so yeah, that’s how I score that one. And I’m sticking to it!
– [Ben] Do you know that this was based on
a 1975 Italian film? – Stop!
– [Ben] “Perfume of a Women”, that’s the translation. – Really?
– [Ben] A woman, yeah a woman. – An Italian film? – [Ben] Profumo di Donna. – Wow, di Donna. – [Ben] Yeah, which also
has that comedy style to it which is what is the tone was half. – Yeah, it was that and half
dramatic, It’s very strange. – [Ben] Well thank you Tommy,
we always wondered about that. – No, I’m glad to finally
be able to talk about it, you know what I mean? That’s what’s great about
doing this is I can, you know, get to sit down and talk
and have a conversation! So I love it, thank you. – [Ben] Color blindness. What do you think about color
blindness, people with it? Any understanding of it? – I sort of get it. I guess that everything sort
of looks maybe washed out or the same color or
what, I don’t really know but it’s gotta be frustrating. – [Ben] Do you know what
it is, more than that? Do you have any idea? – Well it’s just you can’t
distinguish color, right? Like traffic lights are
easy ’cause there’s a top, middle, and bottom one, so
it doesn’t really matter the color there right, isn’t that true? – [Ben] Mm-hmm, generally. – Yeah, but I couldn’t
imagine what it would, because how do you get dressed? How do you pick out your clothes? People ask me the same thing. So, how do you do it? You just must know. – [Ben] You have all your built in tricks. – You have all your tricks
yeah ’cause I have all mine. – [Ben] Other blind people, how often do you meet another
blind person in your life? Somebody who is legally
blind or blind since birth? – You know, not too often! I mean, you know, as a result of YouTube, I’ve met several, and
some wonderful people. We made some great friends and
stuff but I generally don’t. Although, I will tell you a funny story. I was walking around in my neighborhood probably a couple of months ago now, and all of a sudden, I
heard an iPhone and I went, “Why is my phone talking?” And it was a blind person and I was like, “Hey, you’re using your phone.” He’s like, “Yeah.” I was like, “Voiceover?” He goes, “Yeah.” I was like, “Yeah, me too.” And so that was how we met. – [Ben] That’s cool! – That was a neat little thing,
yeah, just on the street. What’s my phone doing, stop! It’s somebody else, hey (laughs). – [Ben] Question from the comments. Body language, do you recognize
when people are nervous without hearing them talking? Is there things that they
give off without talking? – Maybe yes and maybe no. It depends, some people
are just naturally fidgety, do you know what I mean? But when you hear people
sort of shuffling around or kind of moving around, it lets me know that somebody is a bit uptight, you know? I think that that’s kind
of thing I’m listening for. It’s a weird thing because I
don’t have a lot of experience of people who aren’t talking
to me, you know what I mean? ‘Cause most of interactions, we talk. – [Ben] Sure, and then when they do talk, what are some of the…? – It’s funny because people
don’t know how to talk to me. That’s the biggest thing
I encounter all the time, people just don’t know what to say. And so, I can just hear
right in their voice, they’re just a little hesitant. They’re a little bit of
fear, a little trepidation. They’re not quite sure exactly how to put what they want to say. And I always have to, “No,
no you’re all right, come on. “Just say what you need
to say, don’t you worry “about a thing.” So, you know, just those
little things are kind of what I notice. – [Ben] What happens,
they don’t know how to..? – Yeah, they’re afraid,
because people are so afraid that they’re gonna
offend me by using a word like see or watch or look or
any of those kind of things. It’s just part of my, I
hear it every single day. Or the other one I like
is that people don’t know what to call me. How long have you been that
way or visually impaired? Whatever it is, they don’t
wanna say the word blind. They feel like it’s gonna offend me. I don’t know, it’s what I’ve
always been so that word is never going to offend me. And there was a time in
my life I didn’t wanna be but it’s still was what
it was, and is what I is, you know what I mean? – [Ben] Uh huh, I hear you. – It’s cool, it’s all good! So don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid. – [Ben] Someone said in the
comments, you’ve changed. The innocence looks, I’m
sorry, the innocent looks on your face vanished this past two years. – Uh oh. – [Ben] What happened Tommy? – Well, how do I lose my innocence? Listen, I went to a small
Midwestern University. No, that’s an opening from, that’s a very old reference, nevermind. (Ben laughing) I’ve lost my innocence,
what does that even mean? Like I just look different? – [Ben] Well, you have lost weight, right? – Yeah, I’ve lost a bunch of weight. I’ve lost about 45 pounds. I started working out. I always had a treadmill so I began to run and I committed three hours a week to it, that’s it and I love it. It makes me crazy and I
love being finished with it every single time, I love it! – [Ben] People wonder how
have you seen yourself change? We’ve talked about the
whole weight loss thing on a past show but how have you noticed how you’ve seen yourself changed? – I’ll tell you a funny story. I was coming out here to get my things when I left California the last time. And I’d run out of the house
and I had my wheelie bag in one hand and my stick in my other, and I notice, my shorts were
starting to fall off me. I was like, “Oh my God, what’s happening?” ‘Cause I didn’t realize if I
just stop eating all this junk that I was eating and taking
better care of myself, I just automatically
start losing tons a weight and it just fell right off
me, I couldn’t believe it! So that’s the thing, in
clothing I’ve noticed. Like doing laundry, I’ve seen,
before I saw my old clothes and went, oh holy mackerel. I have some old T-shirts
that I work out in, that I run on the treadmill
in and they’re giant. They’re just absolutely huge. I was like, “Wow, I use to fill
this thing out, look at me.” So that’s what I notice
about underwear and stuff, it’s like holy, look at
the big giant underwear I used to wear! But now, everything’s gotten small, that’s the one thing I noticed. And the funny thing too is
when I was getting bigger, I never noticed myself getting bigger. I just had to get different sized clothes and just whatever. Time’s change, what are you gonna go. I didn’t know. I had no idea and then when
I heard my weight and stuff and somebody told me,
you need to shape up kid. – [Ben] How did you gain the weight? – Eating garbage, eating just junk. Drinking tons of beer,
Coca-Cola, McDonald’s. Listen, I still like
McDonald’s, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t have burgers there anymore. I have a chicken sandwich. You know, that grilled chicken
sandwich with nothing on it, I don’t care.
– [Ben] Okay, so in 2000 what, 16, 17?
– 17. – [Ben] Is when you
peak, it was your peak. – At that time, at the
last, I weighed 238 pounds. – [Ben] Wow, I never heard that number. – Yeah, I was giant, and
she just said it so loud. I was oh but shh with that
number, please (laughs). Easy sweetheart, easy. Come on, that’s between you and me. – [Ben] It seem to happen rather
quickly in the big picture. – It happened so fast. – [Ben] Over a period of a year? – Yeah. – [Ben] Or eight months,
where it started to… and the only reason I say
that is ’cause I noticed it. I noticed it in the videos. – Yep. – [Ben] And a funny note
is we told you about this in one of the videos, the
Guess What’s In The Mail video number four. We shot it over a period
of six to eight months, just at the end of other
shoots of you opening mail and you can see your weight change. – Wow. – [Ben] In these different
sections of the video. Nobody is gonna notice
unless I mention it here, but (laughing). – Is there a link for
it in the description? – [Ben] No, actually there’s not. (loud laughing) Guess what’s in the mail four, I failed! (flat ringing) Unbelievable!
(loud buzzer) – I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be a creep. I’m so sorry. – [Ben] I love it. (loud buzzing)
(laughing) (groaning crowd)
I got two of them, two wrongs. (laughs) You’re getting me back
for bringing that up. – Oh, it’s all right, baby,
don’t you worry about it. But, you know, I’m so proud of myself, and I just can’t believe it. So this is new and I’m like… – [Ben] No, it’s awesome. – I just love how I feel. I run upstairs now all the time. I just boop boop boop boop,
and I use to be winded running up the stairs before
when I was heavy, you know? And certainly when I was
smoking, I mean it was (wheezing), you know,
wheezing my way up the stairs. Now I just fly up, I love it. – [Ben] So somebody on
the YouTube comments is asking if you can identify speech that is sped up eight
times its normal speed? They’ve heard that blind
people can identify speech eight times the speed of normal. Can you do it? And they ask, they
actually suggested, could Ben play something sped up eight times and see if he could understand it. (laughing) Sure! – Oh boy. – [Ben] We can do that. – All right, can I give a disclaimer? – [Ben] Yes. – Okay, my nephew is
also blind since birth. He was actually featured in
one of the videos that we did. – [Ben] Right, Andrew. – Yep, that’s his name, Andrew. He’s a wonderful kid, he’s great. But he listens to his
phone so fast as computers because he grew up with this
technology, I did not, okay. So we’ll see how I do. You understand? – [Ben] Right, when
the phone talks to you, his is sped up a lot faster. – His is like brrrrrrrt, I’m like, “What?” Somebody was hanging out
with his sister one time and his sister’s friend goes, “I think there’s something wrong “with your brother’s computer,
it’s just going brrrrt.” And they’re like, no no,
he’s listening to something. He can hear it that fast. – [Ben] That’s funny, so
this soundbite is a soundbite of somebody talking for 23 seconds. – Okay. – [Ben] Sped up eight
times, I’ve kept the pitch. – Thank you sir. – [Ben] Here we go. (speeding audio) One more time. (speeding audio) Any idea? – No. – [Ben] Okay, five times the speed. (speeding audio) – That’s better.
– [Ben] How could you though? – But it’s not quite. – [Ben] Four times,
eh, I’ll jump to three. Three times? – I think I could do three. Let me try four. – [Ben] Let me do four. (speeding audio) – Is that Robert Downey Junior? – [Ben] Do you know
what he’s saying though? – No, I don’t I know what he said. He’s talking about something
that was the best of his life, something about being in the movies. I catch little keywords but
I’m horrible at this game. – [Ben] And by the way. (buzzer rings)
– No? – [Ben] No, it’s not Robert Downey Junior. – All right. – [Ben] Let’s try another soundbite. Let me have another soundbite, shorter. – Okay. – [Ben] Two times. – [Soundbite] You know, I
was a single person, and um– – [Ben] Let me try it three times. – [Soundbite] You know,
I was a single person, and um, I’m six feet tall
and in movies, so you know everybody (garbled speeding
audio) I guess things will go easier for you, you know. (garbled speeding audio)
most people were saying (garbled speeding audio)
to be sure I was single and exploring my life. – [Ben] Any idea? – I know he’s talking about
being single before the movies and stuff and how it was
the best time of his life, but I just don’t listen
to stuff like that. It’s not comfortable for
me, you know what I mean? Like it takes all the
naturalness out of the speech, it drives me crazy! – [Ben] It’s weird, it’s manic. – Yeah, it is! – [Ben] It’s a little– – You know what I mean though?
– [Ben] Unnerving. – It takes all the feel out
of it, and it just, woo ooh, I don’t know. – [Ben] Here’s the actual
soundbite, play just a part of it. – Okay. – [Soundbite] You know,
I was a single person, – Really? – [Ben] Who is this? – [Soundbite] And um,
I’m six feet tall and I’m in the movies.
– Who is that? – [Soundbite] So you know,
everybody puts two and two together–
– [Ben] It’s a celebrity. – [Soundbite] I guess, I guess
things are easier for you. – [Ben] Oscar winner, I believe. – He’s shorter than me, not by much. – [Soundbite] Um, it wasn’t all true, what people were saying,
but to be sure I was single and I was exploring my life. – Not Charlie Sheen. – [Ben] Any idea? No, not Charlie Sheen. That’s Kevin Costner. – That’s Kevin Costner, wow, wow! What’s he talking about? – [Ben] Oh, I don’t know. (laughing) – [Ben] Here’s another one,
you wanna do another soundbite? – Sure! – [Ben] see if you can
identify this giant star. – Okay. – [Ben] Guess who this celebrity is. – All right. – [Soundbite] I mean the
body’s pretty amazing, it will acclimate, it
will do what you tell it it needs to do. I worked for the guy who
knew a lot and he said, “To get to where you wanna
get to for this thing, “you have to…” – Who is that, who is that? – [Ben] Giant star. – Yeah. – [Soundbite] You have
to put yourself in place of discomfort every day. – Is that Leo? – [Ben] Wow, that is not right. – No. – [Soundbite] I mean the
body’s pretty amazing, it will acclimate, it
will do what you tell it it needs to do– – Who is that? – [Ben] Why are you thinking Leo? – I don’t know, I’m just, ’cause
I’m just thinking big star. But I’m talking about– – [Soundbite] I worked
for the guy who knew a lot and he said, “To get to
where you wanna get to “for this thing, you have to,
uh, you have to put yourself “in a place of discomfort.” – Oh, no, what’s his name? (mumbles) McConaughey, is that Matthew
McConaughey, talking about Dallas Buyer’s Club? – [Ben] No. – No. – [Ben] The answer is Brad Pitt. – Brad Pitt! – [Soundbite] Every day. – [Ben] Here we go,
here’s a giant musician from back in the day. – Okay. – [Musician] You feel
like an imposter, when– – Tom Petty! – [Ben] Nope. – [Musician] When someone
thinks you’re someone flying in here, and– – Bob Dylan! – [Ben] Bob Dylan, that’s correct! – There you go, come on!
(ringing chime) – [Ben] Nice, dude. – Thank you sir! – [Ben] Want another? – Yeah, sure, I love
this, are you kidding me? Now that I got one right it’s more fun! (laughing) – [Ben] Here we go, another giant star. – Okay. – [Soundbite] And this one
is different because I think it’s not only the intellectual
acrobatics that he normally does, but there’s a real
heart to this movie– – Jim Carrey. – [Soundbite] And it really
touches a nerve, a real nerve. (chiming bell)
– Come on, come on! – [Ben] That’s right! – You know what he sounds
like at the very beginning? If you just listen to that clip
for a second, it sounds like you flipped by Home
Shopping, just check it out for two seconds. – [Soundbite] Yeah, this
one is different because– – Doesn’t it? (laughing) It’s like you just blew past QVC! – [Ben] Jim Carrey selling
In Living Color DVDs. All right, here’s another one. – Okay. – [Female Soundbite] Once
you enter the popularity sweepstakes, which you do
when you become famous, whether you’re a singer
or an actress or a model or a journalist, a TV
journalist, whatever, you know, you enter the world of– – Is that Madonna? (chiming bell)
– [Ben] That’s correct! – That’s like from 30,
40 years ago, right? (laughing) Just being funny! – [Ben] That’s funny! 15 years ago. – Yeah, easy, right, that
was yeah, (laughing). – [Female Soundbite] How’m I doing? – How’m I doing? You sound like Ed Koch. – [Ben] How’m I doing? – Former New York mayor. – [Ben] Here’s another one for you. – Sure. – [Soundbite] It’s a real family show too. – That’s Prince! – [Ben] There you go! – Come on!
(ringing bell) – [Soundbite] Played in
theaters recently, and ah, – [Ben] All right, and the last one. – [Soundbite] A lot of
my supporters have been– – Let the man finish!
– [Ben] Ssh! – [Soundbite] With me a long
time and they’ve grown up and they’ve got kids now so they’ll
bring all their kids too. (crowd chatter) – I got you, Prince! Go on, yeah I had to let him finish! – [Ben] I know, and I’m
rushing through them, sorry. – (laughs) You’re fine! Listen, I could play this
game, we could just do this for a show. (laughing) – [Ben] Here’s one, we’ll
let it play, people can play along at home. Who is this, no longer
with us, that’s your hint. – Okay. – [Soundbite] I can’t
explain the kind of breaks that have come my way,
and that are out there. Dreams come true, dream
your dreams and massage them and you’ll live them out,
I’m telling you, it works. – That’s lovely, that is
absolutely beautiful, well put sir! – [Ben] And who is that? – You want me to tell you? – [Ben] Please do! – That is the great
George Carlin, everybody! (ringing bell) – [Ben] That’s correct, man. – What a lovely guy, and
he was wonderful too. I never met him but you know,
saying things like that, you know what I mean? That shows you his character,
his heart is right there. It’s beautiful. Smart guy too, lovely, smart smart man. – [Ben] Last one I think. – Okay. – [Soundbite] I think anybody who’s met me know my personality, just even around here when we’re not filming, and I
like to think I’m a good guy. I treated everybody the
way I wanted to be treated and I gave what I got, you know. – [Ben] Any idea who that guy was? (laughing) – I certainly do! – [Ben] Go ahead. – That is Orenthal James Simpson. – [Ben] There you go!
(ringing bell) – Come on! The Juice y’all, the Juice! – [Ben] OJ Simpson, nice job. – Aw man, wow, has this been fun! What a nice time, thank you so
much for being a part of it. Thanks for the great
questions and stuff and please keep them coming, if there’s
anything you want to know, you have a question for the
show, just be sure and just send it off to us. You can comment on this
video here on YouTube, or on Twitter, @TommyEdisonXP. Just ask away, and we’ll take care of them during the next couple of shows! We’re looking forward
to coming back for you. Thanks to Ben Churchill of course! – [Ben] You’re welcome sir, thank you! – Thank you Frank, of
course, taking care of things behind the scenes! – [Ben] Frank San Diego Slade! – Frank San Diego Slade,
everybody, America’s Sweetheart. – [Ben] He’s the moderator
in the chat room. – He is, and we love him. – [Ben] The show was live, yes. – It was live and now, and
now it’s a thing of the past! It’s a recording. – [Ben] And Twitch? – Oh yeah, so we are on
Twitch, and I’d love for you to come follow us on Twitch
and I’ll tell you what, this’ll be a promise or
a threat, you choose. If we make it to a hundred,
when we do, we’ll go live and do a show over there, okay? How’s that sound, doctor? Is that all right with
you, you cool with that? I should probably ask
before I say these things! – [Ben] We’re at like 28
followers right now on there. – So we got a little work
to do, but let’s get it on, let’s see if we can get
up to a hundo on Twitch and we’ll come over and play over there. – [Ben] And did you mention

on iTunes, Spotify, Google, and anywhere you get your
podcasts, and so that’s how you get it! Subscribe and enjoy, thank
you so much for this! – [Ben] Well great show

Gah, I’m staying right here!

The Game Show About Rescuing Your Rich Idiot Friend | Where In the Eff Is Sarah Cincinnati

– [Rekha] We all have that
screw up friend that asks you to bail her out. Well that friend is Sarah Cincinnati and she needs your help gumshoes. Are you up to the task
of doing her a solid just this one last time? You may ask why you’re still friends but hey, someone’s gotta
watch out for her, right? Uh-oh looks like you’re getting a call. – So, I overslept on the bus
on the way to my cousin Julio’s wedding, God he sucks so hard, and I know what you’re thinking, “Sarah, what if you miss the open bar?” I know, me too! Thanks for looking out. Anyways, now I don’t know where I am. Can you help find me? Thank you, love you, (blowing kiss) ♪ Where in the eff is Sarah Cincinnati ♪ – Hello, and welcome to the
only game show where through trivia and physical challenges
we try to figure out where your dumb friend Sarah is and what favor she needs you to do. With us today are her very
loyal and unfortunate friends. Raphael Chestang, Sophia Cleary and John Milhiser. Guys, thanks so much for
joining us here today. – Super excited to be here.
– Thank you for having us. – I mean you shouldn’t be excited John, your friend is missing. – I’m scared.
– Oh no! (all laughing) – Exactly, thank you,
that’s the proper emotion. We are gonna figure out where
Sarah is by following her paper trail via some trivia questions. (upbeat music) All right, starting off our trivia round. Question one, just over the
hill in Studio City, Los Angeles Sarah visited a restaurant
called Caioti Pizza, which always has
something good in the oven and is known for an unusual menu item. Is it A, a pizza with other
tiny pizzas as toppings? B, garlic knots that the
owner claims are made with a recipe that was brought
back in time from the future? C, a salad that sends
pregnant women into labor? Or D, a chocolate cake that
gives diners actual orgasms? All right, you all locked in? – Yeah.
– Wait, wait, wait. – [Sophia] You have to shuffle them first. – Yeah I gotta. – [Rekha] They’re letters man. – That is, that’s a technique. – Okay, it’s all shuffled up now. – All right, Raph, what’ve you got? – [Raphael] A. – [Rekha] A pizza with other
tiny pizzas as toppings. – Yeah, it’s cute. – Okay, Sophia? C, a salad that sends
pregnant women into labor. – Mm hmm. – All right and John, what’ve we got? – C. – Actually I think it’s that one. – Backwards C, the answer is C. It is a salad that sends
pregnant women into labor. – That’s literally what it is? – Yeah. – And it’s real, it’s real. As an ex doula I can confirm.
– You’re a doula, yes. – Yeah people go all the time for it.
– Is it a lot of beets? – I think, I actually don’t know what’s in it.
– They won’t tell you what it is.
– Dates maybe probably.
– Dates? – Dates are really good for
getting it going, mm hmm. – Oh my God, I eat dates so much. – Yeah, careful.
– Do you go a lot? – Do I go into labor? (all laughing) That’s why people go into labor.
– Do I go to labor? – Do I go to labor? – For our next one, uh-oh, ding ding, looks like you got a butt text from Sarah. Sarah sent this from Berkley, California though she surprisingly
failed to tag anyone in it. This structure, which is made primarily from repurposed junk, is: A, an anti-helicopter parenting
playground where kids play with hammers and saws in a
landscape made from garbage? B, Our Lady of Garbage Church of Junk where visitors are encouraged
to dump none food trash wherever they like on the grounds? C, a secret junkyard
entrance to California’s oldest Masonic temple? Or D, Oscar’s Tacos, a
restaurant which carefully skirts the line of copyright infringement with its Trash Monster themed decor. Raph, what’ve we got? – A. – The anti-helicopter
parenting playground. – Yes. – [Rekha] Sophia? B.
– B. – Our Lady of Garbage Church of Junk. John?
– I’m gonna go with B. – Church of Junk. The answer is A! It is an anti-helicopter
parenting playground. – What, that’s real? – [Rekha] It was designed in
1979 to encourage children to take risks. – Ha ha.
– And hurt themselves. – [Rekha] Yeah. – That’s psycho. – All right, next up. Sarah rarely sticks to
the plan and her next step was no exception when she
took a detour down an alley in San Luis Obispo only to find herself in this well-known landmark. A, No Man’s Alley? Which is supposedly outside of federal and state legal jurisdiction
due to a technicality and therefore everything
is legal, allegedly. B, Cat King Alley? Populated by an absurd
number of feral cats which locals claim will
curse you if you harm them. C, Bubblegum Alley where the
walls and floors are coated with more than 40 years of
stale, chewed bubblegum? D, O’Malley’s Rally Tally Alley? Which served as the
finish line for the local O’Malley Soap Box Derby
and includes a mural of the previous winners. – Damn.
– Damn. – [Raph] I’m just gonna say this– – Okay. – This is very close to Hearst Castle. – Mm hmm, okay. (Raph laughing) – That’s it, that’s it.
– Did I get a point? – All right, Raph, what’ve we got? B, Cat King Alley. – Cat King. – All right, Sophia? C, Bubblegum Alley. John? – I’m gonna go with the big D. – Big D, that is O’Malley’s
Rally Tally Alley. – I think that’s right. (laughing) I think D is right. – You lock in an answer
and then you hear John’s and then you go, “I think that’s right.” Well the answer is C, so– – Whoa! – Bubblegum
– As usual, as Constance Wu says, believe women. So, it’s really meaningful–
– Wake up! – When you believe women. Look at this disgusting alley. – It is really disgusting and gives me anxiety.
– Anyone have trichophobia? I sure do, I hate looking at this. Anyway, let’s get away from this. Looks like we’ve got another voicemail from Sarah for our next question. – [Sarah] She stopped
us on the dance floor and whispered in my ear, “If water is best when thirsty
and food is best when hungry “when is it best to love?” The moment called for flirtation and yet I hung my head in shame. My answer was never and
we wouldn’t speak again. (burping) Oof, I had been waiting
for that to come out. – So cool. – Such a weird voicemail. Is she reading a poem. – Sarah left this voicemail
while waiting in San Francisco for her reservation at
Cafe Zoetrope a wine bar and restaurant created
by Francis Ford Coppola. She was inspired by: A, a five minute clinic
street booth session where patrons get five
minutes to vent to a trained listener about their problems. B, the menu which includes a
carefully constructed narrative to explain the backstory
of each menu item. C, a rumor that the bar
tenders at Zoetrope give anyone a free glass of wine if they can tell them a good enough story. D, a short story vending
machine for free print outs of amateur, user submitted short stories to entertain people as they wait. Raph? D, short story vending machine. Sophia? C, bar tenders will give
you a free glass of wine for a good story. John?
– Going with the big D again. – Big D, the answer is D! It is a short story vending machine. Yeah, they’re actually in a few places, they’re in France as well. – Yeah, I knew that. – You didn’t know. I haven’t said that to a
single person on this show you wanna Raph. What were you gonna say John?
– It’s in France too? – And Francis Ford Coppola has it in his– – Okay you’re smart. – Whoa.
– Okay fine, you’ve got it France was named after Francis
Ford Coppola, you’ve got it. Looks like we have got a Tweet from Sarah. Let’s check it out. Sarah took this photo whilst
still in San Francisco but don’t feel insecure if you’re not sure why she sent this. What is this wall of lava lamps? Is it, A, decor at Diane’s
Discounts which claims to be the world’s fanciest thrift store. B, an installation that is
used to encrypt nearly 10% of all the data on the internet. C, the last original lava
lamps ever produced all owned by an eccentric billionaire who hordes ’60s and ’70s paraphernalia. Or, D, an art installation
designed to help people feel less anxious but that some claim
is a secret government mind control experiment. What’ve you got? – C. – Okay, C, the last original
lava lamps ever produced. D, an art installation
designed to help people feel less anxious. John? – A. – A, decor at Diane’s Discounts. The answer is B. It’s an installation that is
used to encrypt nearly 10% of the data on all of the internet. – Wow, yeah. – It uses a machine to
track the random motions of the lava lamps to generate unpredictable encryption algorithms. – Oh, oh, okay.
– What. (blowing raspberry) – For sure, for sure, yeah. – All right next, Sarah left San Francisco and went to the California
city nicknamed The Big Tomato. Where is she? A, Sacramento. B, Fresno. C, Bakersfield. Or D, Santa Cruz. – I don’t know. I’m torn.
– I saw Bird Girl, no. What was that?
– Lady Bird? – Lady Bird, I saw Lady Bird.
(Sophia laughing) – Bird Girl!
– Okay, but you knew what I was saying.
– Honestly, would see. – Better title. – Way better title.
– Way better title. – No mom, I’m not Christine I’m Bird Girl. – Wake up. – That took place in Sacramento,
no body made any references to a big tomato. – All right, let’s do it, Raph? D, Santa Cruz. Sophia? D, Santa Cruz. John? – C. – Bakersfield. The answer is A, Sacramento. (all exclaiming) You didn’t hear Bird
Girl’s tomato diatribe? Half that movie was about Big Tomatoes. – My intuition was telling me two things. – She was like, “Oh, I
don’t wanna go to college, “I wanna go to Big Tomato.” Approaching final question and
right now Raph you have 20, Sophia you have 20 and John you have 20. We are all tied up. This could be anybody’s game. – Oh boy. – You already know Sarah
ended up in Sacramento which you’re probably aware is the state of California’s capital. However, California has actually changed state capitals six times. For our final question,
where you can wager however many points you have up to,
you don’t have to wager all of them, name one of the
California capital cities from before 1854 when Sacramento
became the permanent capital. All right, so put your
point wager on the board. (upbeat music) – That was good thinking music. – Yeah, you didn’t feel
psychotic listening to it? – No.
– I do. – All right, Raph what’ve we got? Zero points wagered for San Jose, okay. Sophia? 20 points for San Francisco. And John? One point for San Francisco. So this is really interesting. Raph is the only one who
guessed anything correctly. And he wagered no points. – Wow, oh God! God why, why? Oh wait no, that’s good. – Well so you stay the same. You just didn’t gain anything – You’re gonna win. – [Rekha] So you’re at 20 points. – I wagered it all. – You wagered it all Sophia. San Francisco is an incorrect. John you wagered one so you’re
still in the game as well. I’m so sorry Sophia, that
means you’re elimanted. Here were the options. The answers were: Monterey,
San Jose, Vallejo, twice was the capital, Benicia
and, weirdly, Sacramento. Sacramento was the name of
the capital at one point but then it got changed. – It had a comeback.
– And then went back to Sacramento. – You learn something new every day. – You really, truly do. Sophia I’m so sorry that
means you’re eliminated. – It’s all good. – But Raph and John you
get another chance to help your dear friend Sarah
Cincinnati in round two with our physical challenge. And to cue you up for that we have a little message from Sarah. – Yay, you found me! I am in Sacramento where
all the almonds come from and where Cali state
government stuff happens. Speaking of which, I have
a court meeting in 10. If you learn anything from me
today it’s don’t steal almonds in California because they
will arrest you for punching the cop that gave you a citation. Anywho, I need you to
find Julio’s wedding gift. I lost it somewhere in
all of the craziness. (siren blaring) Oops, the cop who gave
me the citation is back. What you gonna arrest
me again for J-walking? You gonna catch me? Are you gonna catch me? Huh? – Have fun you guys. – Oh God. (upbeat music) – Okay, Raph and John, you
found Sarah in Sacramento and Sacramento is home to the
Blue Diamond Almond Growers. California is home to 80%
of the world’s almond crops. So wouldn’t you know it,
Sarah left her wedding gift on an almond farm. So, she needs your help getting
it back and the only way to get it back is through
the game “Almond King.” – [Announcer] Almond King. – Each of you will be given a nut hammer and a bunch of almonds. You must crack as many almonds
as you can in 60 seconds and whoever cracks the
most amount of almonds and places them in their
corresponding baskets by the end of time wins. The catch? You’ll each be wearing a VR
headset that is playing a Sacramento Kings basketball game, baby. And I’m gonna want live
updates of what’s going on in that game ’cause
I’m a huge basketball– – Not true. – Mm huge. – [Ralph] Probably lie. – So, be sure to keep me posted. You guys feel good? – Yeah.
– Yes. – Okay, let’s put those
googles on and I also am going to put goggles on because Raph’s wild. On your mark, get set, go nuts!
(whistle trilling) – [John] The red team. (laughing) The blue team just scored. – Oh, cool. Raph, what’s going on in the game? – Erm, erm, erm, right now I
think somebody just got fouled. – Yeah. – Erm, erm, yeah so. – Where’s the ball? – The ball right now (mumbling). – Blue team has it. – All right, 30 seconds. (mumbling incoherently) – Oh, oh, the broken ones
went in with the new ones! Oh that’s– – Yeah, John, what’s going on in the game? – They are, the blue guy
has it again all right– – Yeah, cool, three, two, one. (klaxon blaring)
Time! Oh, man, you can take those headsets off. Wow. Okay, so that’s Raph five, John 11. Raph I am so sorry that
means you are eliminated. – Wow, wow.
– Oh. And then John, you will be
moving on to round three our obstacle course. (upbeat music) Okay so John, Sarah is
trying to leave Sacramento and still needs her cousin’s
wedding gift that you found. – Okay. – So, we have to figure out
where she’s trying to go. Within Sarah’s nasty
apartment lie five clues. Identified with little
magnifying glass stickers on them that point to her final destination. You will have 90 seconds
to ransack the place, find as many clues as you can. But, watch out, you
never know who, or what, is lurking in Sarah’s apartment. Good God, she is a mess. How are you feeling? – Good. – You think you’re gonna panic in there? – Yeah, I’m good at ransacking stuff. – Okay great. So, you ready? – Ready. – Okay, on your mark, get set, ransack! (upbeat music) – Hey!
– Uh oh it looks like Sarah’s drunk whiny sister is here
and she does not look happy. – What are you doing? Stop it. You can’t go through her stuff. – [Rekha] Fun fact,
Sarah’s sister was banned from all indoor malls in Los Angeles. She thinks it’s ’cause she
made out with a mall Santa but it’s actually because
she was too annoying. – You can’t look at her– – And shouldn’t you be at the wedding? – I didn’t get invited to the wedding. – Oh, I am sorry. – Please, please stop looking at things. – Oh, okay there’s a lot
on this table still John. There might still be something here. – You’re gonna break it. Those are her shelves. – Okay, a clue. – What if I ask really nice? – Mam please.6 – 40 seconds left. – You know what, I’m gonna call the cops. – All right John, check in the book shelf. Head to the side table–
– Hey do you know– – Search it.
– what the number. – Do you know what the
number to the cops is? – He just found another clue. – Erm, 811. – Is it 919? – 20 seconds John. – 811, okay, I’ll try that. Ouch, you don’t have
to throw things at me. Violence isn’t the answer. – [Rekha] You got 10 seconds John. – Stop, no don’t touch that. – Okay, what about that
food that’s on there John I don’t know if that’s a clue at all. – Not, no.
– Oh my God, okay, great, one second. (klaxon blaring)
Time! So, what do we have?
– We have a bag of raisins. – [Rekha] Okay, fantastic. – A bus ticket that the
duration of the trip is three hours 15 minutes. – Okay, from Los Angeles. – From Los Angeles. – Okay. – And a to-do list to visit all the major cities in California. LA, San Francisco, San Diego, Sacramento. – So using the clues that you’ve found where do you think Sarah needs to go? – Well I don’t know what these are for. – Yeah. – But I’m going to say, San Jose? – San Jose, is that your final answer? – Yeah. – San Jose is incorrect. I’m so sorry. The answer is actually Fresno. – Fresno.
– Fresno. – Yes, I know, I know,
who cares about Fresno? There were two clues over there that might have been more helpful. It was was a map and a
CSUF little university, California State University of Fresno. – Okay. – I know, I know. Sucks that you weren’t able
to get Sarah’s wedding gift to Fresno but she does have
a little message for you. – So I know not making it to
Julio’s wedding is technically bad but I kinda see it as a
win-win ’cause now I don’t have to suffer through Julio’s
wedding and now I get to come home and see you! Can you Venmo me $200 for a bus ticket? ‘Cause I spent all my last
$50 on like these almonds. Actually, can you Venmo me 250? So she would like you to Venmo her $250. – What’s new? – Aint that the truth. Thank you so much John for playing. That is it for this episode. Tune in next time to see what
random place Sarah ends up in and what annoying favor
she’s going to ask here on ♪ Where in the Eff is Sarah Cincinnati ♪ (upbeat music) – Hey, you guys can’t dance, get out. I have this, thank you. – Hi, it’s Rekha. If you like College Humor

Ninh explains, The Worst Fan Giveaways in
Sports. Ah sports teams – they’ll do anything
to try and entice you into their stadiums, and that includes giving away free stuff.
Now, I like stuff, especially if it’s free. But some teams really shouldn’t bother because
they don’t get the concept of trying to make people actually come back to the stadium
to watch more games. These are some of the worst fan giveaways
you’ll ever see. Zim-bear – Tampa Bay Rays.
Imagine a teddy bear that had sexual relations with Don Zimmer, the stony faced manager of
the Tampa Bay Rays – and you get this, the ZimBear. This creepy monstrosity was an actual
giveaway in 2012, and you’d think that no-one would actually take one of these things home
because of the … you know … weirdness and all. But people actually liked the damn
thing and it was so successful, they repeated the same promotion a month later. Those people
in Tampa must really hate the crappy play on the field if they came back TWICE just
for a creepy little teddy bear. School folders, Toledo MudHens
Minor league baseball is jam packed full of stupid giveaways. And the Mudhens are no exception.
I have no idea why they decided to give away paper-based school folders. But you don’t
get just one school folder, no no no, you get three – which demonstrates the sheer
generosity (or stupidity) of the Mud Hens marketing department. Seriously guys, why? Circular Seat Cushions, Toronto FC
To celebrate the inaugural game of Toronto’s brand-new MLS team, each fan in attendance
was given a commemorative seat cushion. ‘That’s a pretty good gift’, I hear you say. But,
when Danny Dichio scores their first ever goal – those seat cushions became oversized
frisbees that littered the entire field. And it took forever for the ground staff to clear
them out of the way. Funnily enough, Toronto FC has never given away seat cushions ever
again. Similar incidences have happened to Florida
Panthers with plastic rats, and hockey hard hats from the Chicago Blackhawks. Good ideas
in theory, but … Wise men bobble heads – Nashville sounds
Bobble heads are a common giveaway and if it’s of a cool player, it’s actually kinda
collectable. But I think the promotional team at the Nashville Sounds have been smoking
the ganja, because they decided to make bobbleheads of the three wise men – even though nobody
knows what they actually look like – if they even existed at all. And to make matters
worse, they gave them away … in July. 5 months before Christmas. Toiletry bags – Chicago Cubs.
The Cubs really hit a low point in 2013 where their game night promotion was giving away
toiletry bags. Not those fancy ones that you buy in a shop of course, the ones that you
typically find at any international airport. That they give away. For free. To every passenger
that walks through it’s terminals. Well, at least you won the world series recently,
so you can use that to make people forget about your terrible promotions – I guess. Mike Trout Fish Hat – LA Angels.
Mike Trout has an interesting last name … I know, let’s cash in on it? Yes, the Angels
marketing department gave away hats in the shape of trouts and I don’t know who in
their right mind wore this outside of the stadium, but you can still find them on eBay
from time to time. Unfortunately, none of these sellers ship to England. Which is a
shame, because I was planning on wearing this at my upcoming wedding. 10 cent beer night. Cleveland Indians.
10c for a beer, that’s fantastic! And you could buy 6 at a time?! What’s the worst
that could happen? Apart from fans getting so drunk off cheap beer that they fought each
other, vomited everywhere, ran onto the field, stole the bases and rioted to the point where
the game was eventually abandoned, you mean? In hindsight, it was a complete disaster,
but hey at least the beer was cheap. A bag of shit – Seattle Mariners.
In 2011 – the Mariners were on some kind of green phase and their most notable contribution
to saving the environment? Giving away bags of soil for the first 5,000 fans to enter
Safeco Field. Yay, compost, that’ll make a great valentine’s day gift. Nothing says
I love you more than a literal bag of crap that you got from a ballpark. Bubble Wrap – Altoona Curve
The undisputed kings of giving away garbage gifts is the Altoona Curve Baseball team.
In fact, they actually do it on purpose. Some of their ‘wonderful’ giveaways include
useless squares of bubble wrap – which wasn’t big enough to protect anything you send in
the mail. And photographs of removed gallbladders. You know, just because every baseball fan
needs to see what a removed gall bladder looks like. How much do I not want to go to an Altoona
Curve game, right about now? Urine Cups – Vero Beach Devil Rays.
As part of an anti-doping promotion in 2008, the Vero Beach Devil Rays gave away 200 pee
cups to the first 200 fans in attendance. I’m not actually sure what the fans did
with those cups and I don’t know what’s actually worse. Giving away the urine cups
in the first place, implying that those first 200 fans are on steroids like McGwire, or
only being able to afford just 200 cups. A funeral – Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
In 2013, the IronPigs were having a ‘celebrate life’ promotion … and they commemorated
this by giving away a bloody funeral. Yes, one lucky fan walked away from the ballpark
with an all expenses paid trip to a hole in the ground or really hot oven of their choice.
It sounds kinda kooky, but I’d still take that over a bag of soil and a Mike Trout Fish
hat any day of the week. Have you been to a sports event and received
a really crap gift? Was it worse than any of these? As always, like, share and subscribe
