Plot twist: Linus has watched the video.

Maybe this was just me but this video was the most entertaining and engaging LMG video in a long time. I couldn't help but watch and think how well it was filmed and edited, it just seemed like a great deal of effort was put into producing it (relative to the usual amount of work LMG put into it). We all know Linus is watching this video.

 

I also just have to ask. What. The. Fuck. Was the whole bestiality question about?

If I got that question in an interview I think It would make me so tense I would turn into a stuttering, stammering mess for the rest of the interview. I just thought it goes straight past a tension relief

the subject is questionable but asking a very out of place question a good way to see how you handle stress and how quick you are to make a decision in a new Amd challenging way. 

 

stuttering mess isn't really what people go for but that doesn't mean its a deal breaker.

Or, perhaps Colton was just joking. It's not exactly one of the most serious videos they've made and there are many other things in it which are exaggerations or lies in the form of jokes.

 

 

I second the question about the new Red camera video, I've been waiting for that for a long time (mainly to see what justification they give for spending sucha  ridiculous amount of money).

Great video, but something I really want is like another "office moving vlog" where Linus or whoever would just like walk us through the changes and introduced all the new people ( because I believe some people didn't get a proper introduction and we've been seeing them for months.)

Does anyone realize that 3:35-3:38 says media offline?

While watching I thought that was fitting for how Linus may loose it.

 

What video was the screeching Linus on the couch from? "Turn it off!"?


Good news everyone...!

It has to be somewhere from Scrapyard Wars S4, E4

Edit: Taran confirmed it is not in the video, though it is from it.

Can't find the video where he's unboxing the Reds... or the one where he destroys the keyboard... I suppose the one where he comepletely loses his shit and starts screaming in a high pitched voice is not in an acutal video...
