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 don't know where you get your "insider info" from, but everyone was pretty much honest in this video :P haha.

Linus did legitimately ask Colton if he was into beastiality in his interview. He's just funny like that sometimes.


Sign up for Floatplane. Do it. It's fantastic.

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.)

I guess only the peeps who see the Wan show know that LMG has made a few recruitments

Working at Linus Media Group seems like a ton of fun... but is it really? Let's ask the crew and see what they think...

 

 

Hey, could you please tell me the music on the background? Thanks

Need to make Linus build a computer while riding a horse.

Agreed.


My procrastination is the bane of my existence.

I make games and stuff in my spare time.

Quick question. When was the last time you updated your staff page? 
 


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

Ya know, if you can handle that question well in an interview... you probably can handle much of what Linus will drop on you.

Question: Did Linus actually watch this... I'd like to see a video where he tells his side of the story. Also CAN we get a video were we get intros on all the different people who work there, what they do and how long they've been there. Also how come his wife wasn't part of it or am i missing something.

How would the wife say she got the job?  "I banged the boss to get here..."

I'm joking.  She's married to Linus, I'm assuming that since they're married, the wife has some ownership of the company.


Currently focusing on my video game collection.  Here's what I got so far.  

Keep in mind I'm still grabbing multiplatform games on PC, unless they happen to be cheaper on PS4 or Switch (such as RDR2 as of right now)

 

Currently Playing:  

  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Switch
  • Super Mario Maker 2 - Switch

Games Beaten:

  • God of War - PS4
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Switch

(will be reset at the beginning of each month)

Put on hold:

  • Splatoon 2 - Switch

 

How many games I'm needing:

  • DS: 82
  • Wii: 38
  • 360/PS3: 84
  • 3DS: 60
  • Wii U: 6
  • PS Vita: 34
  • PS4: 20
  • Switch: 16

I am sure that too but it would still be nice to know what she says :-)

He claims he still hasn't watched it - I have no reason to believe he's not telling the truth, but I doubt he'd say anything if he did watch it :P

 

Yvonne wasn't part of it since she's Linus' boss, not the other way around lol.

We'd be lucky to have her even if she had no relation to Linus whatsoever - she pretty much does all of the things that no one else wants to deal with, as well as managing most of the financials for the company, and being a total badass in the process.

Lol, I figured she was the big boss.

 

And it's actually really cool to learn more about what she does.  That is a pretty big role in the company.  I figured it was just managerial stuff she handled, didn't realize she did a lot of the 'dirty' work, if you will.

Linus seems so intense and open, like a burning flame. It would be really nice to hear some stories about handling difficulties, crazy moments, the ones that usually scares people. How do you do?? Were you just born that way?
