  • - Working at Buzzfeed, you're signing up

  • for your life to be weirder.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Everything we do, every video is already a,

  • this can only happen at Buzzfeed.

  • You're lucky if you catch one where we have clothes on.

  • The one I'm gonna speak about today

  • is already the most Only at Buzzfeed video we ever did.

  • Which was the Try Guys try Ancient Olympics.

  • We compete in the Ancient Olympics, naked,

  • as the Ancient Olympians did.

  • Let's start at the beginning.

  • We're shooting at the Getty Villa,

  • a beautiful museum of ancient Grecian artifacts.

  • We first want to try to let them have

  • us compete naked on their grounds.

  • This was out of the question because some

  • of our older donators don't want naked men

  • running around million dollar art.

  • Fine, whatever.

  • We only have a few days to shoot this,

  • you know, scheduling stuff is hard.

  • Also, any unscripted video can quickly fall to shit

  • because there's no script.

  • We find a place to shoot.

  • It is a nearby high school.

  • This is the summer, so nobody should be there.

  • We fill out some paperwork,

  • we have this check ready for them

  • and we show up on the day we agreed to show up

  • on the football field, and then

  • a day camp of 8 to 12 year old boys and girls

  • comes onto the football field.

  • Uh, we're naked in bathrobes in July.

  • Now we're like, uh, this isn't supposed to be happening.

  • No one should be here cause a bunch of grown men

  • are about to try to do the long jump, naked.

  • There's a guy who we were working with,

  • and we call him down and say hey,

  • what are all these kids doing?

  • He's like, well, we thought you

  • could only use half the field.

  • And we're like, we told you we'd be naked.

  • We had paperwork that specifically says

  • we're gonna be naked here.

  • He's like, well you can't they have this field.

  • I'm like, no, we have this field.

  • And I start getting very upset.

  • I say you need to get these kids to leave,

  • we had it first, he says that's not gonna happen,

  • you guys have to leave.

  • And there are, again, hundreds

  • of 8 to 12 year old children watching this happen.

  • At some point we concede defeat,

  • we go over, pick up our clothes off the ground,

  • and just carry them away with our camera equipment

  • to a car, but then the car is behind a gate

  • that we don't have the key to, so we're stuck

  • in this place and we're naked still.

  • And we're like, well do we put the clothes on?

  • No we can't put our clothes on because

  • there's children over there.

  • So we're sort of trapped on a high school campus,

  • naked, in a day camp with everyone mad at us.

  • So we rescheduled the shoot,

  • and we shot it on Buzzfeed grounds.

  • And only our coworkers had to, got to see us naked.

  • - It might have been like six months

  • into my Buzzfeed career.

  • Gosh, was it Daysha?

  • She was like (texting sounds)

  • hey Nick, how do you feel about wearing heels for a day?

  • I was like, I've done drag a couple times,

  • I'm like, I'm good, but I didn't wear it all day.

  • Also, this was in the summer too,

  • so it was like hot as (bleep).

  • And Daysha was like I'm gonna put these boys in some heels.

  • And we knew there was gonna be like

  • some sort of like fire alarm

  • like that week, but we didn't know the exact day.

  • So we're going about our day (typing sounds)

  • making interesting articles for you all to read,

  • and here we go, there's like people throwing (bleep)

  • all over the office, it's like earthquake!

  • And we have to go outside.

  • And these are not like two inch heels.

  • These are like heels like this.

  • Like, they're big ass heels.

  • We're walking, walking, walking,

  • like outside our office, and then they're like

  • oh you should like walk in the grass.

  • Girls have to do this all the time,

  • and I'm like, okay.

  • My ass was sinking in the damn grass like quicksand.

  • I'm sinking.

  • Then we had to walk to Jersey Mike's for lunch.

  • And people were honking at us,

  • like literally cat-calling us.

  • - Oh, and I don't like it at all.

  • - Thank you.

  • - First cat call! - Woot woot!

  • - I was like, wow, this is what

  • also you all have to go through.

  • Like, no one's cat calling me on a daily basis.

  • I'm wearing heels and y'all wanna cat call?

  • Okay.

  • I don't know, I obviously like didn't wear them all day.

  • I kind of cheated a few times.

  • I'm done.

  • This is my life right now.

  • Now you know why some girls take off their heels

  • and put 'em on their back.

  • That (bleep) is painful.

  • - I don't want to tell you about the time

  • my penis was on the internet, not yet.

  • There's a weird thing that happened when we were

  • preparing for our Try Guys strip show.

  • We decided to put on a strip show, how fun.

  • Not only were we doing a strip show,

  • we were doing a strip show in front of 200 people,

  • it was the first time that Buzzfeed

  • had ever done a live show, and so we were really nervous.

  • At this point, I'm used to being naked around my friends.

  • I'm not used to being naked in front of strangers.

  • You know, we're professionals,

  • we want to put on a good show.

  • We're gonna practice, we're gonna practice a lot.

  • At the time, Buzzfeed's main shooting space

  • was a hollowed out Big Lots.

  • It was a department store that we just gutted.

  • I called it the Catacombs.

  • It's like exposed brick everywhere

  • and like, just like the faint

  • dripping sound in the background.

  • So that's where we decided to practice our strip show.

  • We're four men in thongs, and Keith is wearing a horse head.

  • So it's a horse head and nothing else.

  • And then he strips it off, and

  • reveals that he's a beautiful man.

  • At this time, Ze, who is the President of the company

  • was giving a tour to Jonah, who is the CEO of Buzzfeed.

  • It was his first time in Los Angeles to see the new space.

  • So he was getting a tour of the whole complex

  • and we're like in the heat of practicing.

  • Like we're really going for it because like,

  • we only have like maybe like an hour to practice.

  • And then we have to go that night to perform.

  • We're dancing, and you know, we're slapping

  • and jumping around and writhing our body.

  • And we just hear a, Oh!

  • Oh, hi, hi.

  • I turn around and there is Jonah and Ze,

  • and they're just kinda looking around this creepy room.

  • I'm holding a light saber, and there's like a box

  • of like animal heads all over the place.

  • And like what weird sex dungeon

  • did these two just walk in to?

  • I don't think I'd ever met Jonah at that point.

  • And I was excited, so I said, oh hi, oh...

  • And I realized like what we were.

  • Unfortunately Keith couldn't see Jonah.

  • Keith who had a horse head on.

  • The three of us are frozen staring at my two bosses.

  • But Keith is dancing, and he's just going for it.

  • Now he's really, really going for it.

  • He's slapping and he's writhing

  • and then it ends with him ripping his shirt off.

  • He holds it and he's breathing heavy

  • cause he's, you know, we're not fit people.

  • Yeah, then I think Jonah just went, alright.

  • And he left.

  • You know, the things we do for videos.

  • (upbeat music)
