  • Dramatic chipmunk!

  • This is old-school.

  • When this first came out,

  • -I watched it, like 150 times in a row. -Who didn't?

  • You hit me with the classics.

  • I've never seen that one before.

  • Something bad is going to happen.

  • It's a completely different experience knowing the pay-off first.

  • (gasp) Oh!

  • What the--no!

  • Well, she almost did, like, a flip too, so...that's pretty impressive.

  • You know, I hate those kind of videos

  • that you never really get to see if they're okay.

  • Some people think it's funny when children hurt themselves.

  • Like you, for example.

  • (girl) Go!

  • (girl) Bwah!

  • -(Anthony snickers) -My favorite video in the world.

  • (girl) Go!

  • (girl) Bwah!

  • Oh...baby!

  • (girl) Go!

  • (girl) Bwah!

  • (laughs)

  • You just face planted. (laughs)

  • Remember, you said that you wanted people to react to that.

  • -Yes! -Yeah.

  • Yes!

  • Panda! Oh my gosh, panda!

  • I love pandas. Oh, and it's the little baby--(gasp).

  • Oh, it's so cute!

  • It's, like, one of the most classic videos on the internet.

  • I've never seen these!

  • That is adorable.

  • -What was that? -(Finebros) Have you not seen that before?

  • I've never seen that.

  • I've watched "Sneezing Panda" probably, in my life, more than 100 times.

  • -I haven't seen this one. -I've seen this one.

  • Oh! Jesus.

  • (laughs) Why would she do that?

  • (laughs) Well, that escalated!

  • (gasp)

  • She's just not even in pain. She's just in awe.

  • She's like..."That just happened?"

  • Um, is this going to take long?

  • Oh, I love this video!

  • Oh! I've seen this one!

  • -No way. -(woman) Oh my [bleep].

  • (laughs)

  • -Oh, she's going to--NO! -(girl) Holy [bleep]

  • Ew! Oh my--wait. Is that real?

  • I mean, you can tell that's effects.

  • -(girl) Holy [bleep] -I like how she says, "Oh [bleep]."

  • It's like, yes, that is.

  • She gave birth. Water birth.

  • It's healthy. It's what Katie Holmes did.

  • These are some of my, like, favorite videos I think I've ever seen.

  • That's the definition of YouTube.

  • -(Finebros) What did all these videos have in common?

  • They're all old!

  • They were short and funny.

  • Short, quick clips that are the definition of YouTube in '05, '06.

  • They all made me hard. (chuckles)

  • -(Finebros) And why do videos that are so short sometimes go the most viral?

  • People have short attention spans.

  • Because people have no attention spans.

  • So they see the video and they see the time is, like, two seconds...

  • and they're like, "Oh. Okay. I can work that in."

  • If they see a video that's two minutes, it's like, "Ugh. It's too much work."

  • Just [bleep] in the tub and get out.

  • Who has time to sit and watch, like, a super long video?

  • I like things to be quick, you know?

  • -Well, not everything. -(Finebros laughs)

  • I like--I like things to be quick.

  • I think it's probably just the easiest to share.

  • You don't have to be involved at all.

  • You replay it over and over and that's why it generates so many views.

  • I think there's brain chemistry.

  • I think that there's a release of hormones that happens

  • when you see someone get injured, or something exceptionally cute.

  • There's something endearing about it in that some really great things...

  • can come from something so short and so simple that we all can laugh,

  • enjoy and watch it over and over and over again.

  • (Finebros) So let's talk about them. That animal that did that dramatic turn.

  • (Finebros) What kind of animal is that?

  • Uh...oh...[bleep] me.

  • -A hamster? -(buzzer goes off)

  • -Is it a chipmunk? -(buzzer goes off)

  • -A squirrel? -(buzzer goes off)

  • -Gopher. -(buzzer goes off)

  • -Groundhog? -(buzzer goes off twice)

  • -Hamster. (laughs) -(buzzer goes off three times)

  • Well, I know they call it "The Dramatic Chipmunk",

  • -...but it was really a prairie dog? -(bell dings)

  • -A panda. -What? No. Prairie dog.

  • Oh, I thought you were talking about the panda doing a dramatic turn at the--

  • (Finebros laughs) No!

  • I thought it was a panda!

  • -(Finebros) Can you recreate it for us? -Okay.

  • (dramatic music plays)

  • Dun dun! (laughs)

  • -Are you hard? -(Finebros and Shane laugh)

  • -(Finebros) And the breakdancer? -Well, he was breakdancing...

  • ..and just kicked some little kid in the face.

  • A little girl got punted...

  • which is what happens when you get into a breakdance fight.

  • That's what happens.

  • It lets you know how much power and force goes into a breakdance move.

  • She kind of deserves it for interrupting the arts.

  • I kind of knew that was going to happen because...

  • ..you know, all those dancing clips-- either a kid gets hit or something is broken.

  • (Finebros) And what happened in the one where the girl fell down?

  • That was horrible.

  • She face-planted. It was just straight up-- dog, taking it for a walk.

  • Well, guess what? Dog took her for a walk, if you know what I mean!

  • It's one of my favorite videos because... (laughs)...

  • no matter how many times they hit the replay button, like,

  • I just get so much satisfaction out of it.

  • There's so many questions too. You're like, "Did she get hurt?"

  • "Were her parents there? Who was filming?"

  • -What was she throwing? -(Anthony laughs)

  • (Finebros) Why do we all laugh at this girl?

  • Because it's shocking!

  • I think it's partly because she is the instrument of her own demise.

  • It's a [inaudible] Froden (becomes tongue tied). A German word, right?

  • [DeFranco tries to say "schadenfreude"]

  • I think it's the noise.

  • "Go!" and then--blegh!

  • -Blah! -B--no, it's not "bah!" It's "Bweeeeh!"

  • -Oh, sorry. -Yeah.

  • It's a little bit--yeah, it's important.

  • (Finebros) What happened with those pandas?

  • The pandas! I love pandas.

  • Jump scare sneeze. They're scary.

  • The little one sneezed and the big one moved.

  • And it got 100 million views.

  • That's, like, the classic one that I feel like has been parodied the most...

  • out of any video ever.

  • It's cute, but on, like, several levels.

  • First, there's a baby panda sneezing.

  • Second, mom apparently has never heard a baby panda sneeze,

  • just like we haven't!

  • (Finebros) And what about the woman that punched the other woman in the face?

  • I think that other woman was being a bitch.

  • And I think that old lady had to show her "the business."

  • I don't even think that girl knew why she got punched.

  • It seemed like it just came out of nowhere.

  • I think the funniest part is the fact that you don't know why she punched her.

  • -Yeah. -I keep replaying it, like, trying

  • to read it in their face.

  • Most of your life, right, it's just, "Blah blah blah. Blah blah blah."

  • "Oh, oh." And then, like, normal society holds people back...

  • but then when you get hit in the face for the first time, you're like,

  • "So that's what that feels like! [bleep]"

  • (Finebros) And the Jacuzzi. What happened there?

  • She pooped herself.

  • The girl had the Hershey squirts.

  • The poor girl's ruined forever. Like, at that point, you just move.

  • Except, now the internet exists and it doesn't matter where she goes.

  • I think that one's fake.

  • It's fake. I've pooped in a lot of Jacuzzis.

  • And it doesn't ooze out like that...like a cartoon.

  • I don't know who, or why, they would have done that,

  • but I think it's fake.

  • I've never pooped in a pool so I wouldn't know.

  • I might want to try that.

  • Just to see, just to check the legitimacy of the video. (laughs)

  • (Finebros) What would you have done if you were in the Jacuzzi?

  • Well, I would have probably been the one pooping myself so...

  • that would have been me.

  • Get the [bleep] out.

  • You run or you vomit.

  • I would be running and then I'd be, like, scrubbing myself down

  • with anti-bacterial soap.

  • I would have done a scuba. You know? YOLO, right?

  • I might dunk one of my friends in the water...

  • just before jumping out.

  • People who are watching out there: if you're having cramps, get out of the hot tub.

  • Do not be ashamed of your digestive needs.

  • (Finebros) People end up remixing their own versions of viral videos...

  • ..even some from the ones we've showed you.

  • Why is that something that people do?

  • Because people are not creative and they're like,

  • "Oh. I'll just rip off this other thing."

  • They want to ride on the coattails, man.

  • You know, they want to take something that has gotten popular...

  • ..and they're going, "I can make it better!"

  • I think it's just inserting yourself into something that's already awesome.

  • Everything, in general, in terms of entertainment, isn't original.

  • I think everything's a copy of something somewhere...

  • ..because we had to learn it somewhere, you know?

  • So...um...in terms of remixing, I think it's just another art.

  • People love to create.

  • The internet just fosters that remix culture,

  • which is one of the coolest things about the internet.

  • (Finebros) So what is the perfect short viral video?

  • Well, if I had one, I would have made it already.

  • I'm not good at this! I don't do the viral video thing,

  • I just watch them and enjoy them.

  • If I had an idea for a perfect ten second video, I wouldn't tell you!

  • Myself, with Ray and Jenna and Smosh, all in a Jacuzzi,

  • and we all just let loose.

  • Watch...uh...what is it? The five of us poo!

  • I'm pretty sure that would go a little viral.

  • I mean, I'd share it because I'm in it!

  • Thanks for watching another episode of YouTubers React.

  • We'll be back soon, so make sure that you subscribe to all the channels.

  • I love your faces and I'll see you next time.

  • Bye!

  • Bye!

Dramatic chipmunk!
