  • Today we're talking all about Halloween.

  • -I want to suck your blood. -Really? JR, is this how you're going to host today?

  • Let's talk about that Vid!

  • -Welcome to VidTalk on VoiceTube TV. -JR, stop, please.

  • -I'm JR. -I'm Ray, and today we're going to talk about Halloween!

  • The reason why is because, it's coming up, right? When is it?

  • -It's actually this Saturday. Every October the 31st. -That's right.

  • Halloween is coming up, so we're talking about it and it's a very beloved holiday, but when we think about holiday, what do you think of, when you think about Halloween?

  • Well, of course I think about candy and trick-or-treating, those childhood memories.

  • -Yeah, well for me, I think of more... costumes. -So you're a cosplayer?

  • -No, I like watching people cosplay. -That is fun!

  • I don't dress up, I watch people dress up.

  • And also for some reason, we think of monsters.

  • Monsters, witches, werewolves, Dracula.

  • -I want to suck your blood. -JR, stop, please.

  • -That's JR's very bad impression of Dracula. -I just couldn't help it, it's like the werewolf seeing a full moon.

  • Ok, so what comes to your mind when we talk about Halloween? Candies, costumes, monsters?

  • -Trick-or-treating. -That's right.

  • But, JR, do you know the origin of Halloween?

  • You know, come to think of it, I really don't know.

  • So, let me fill you guys in on the origin of the holiday, Halloween.

  • The origin of Halloween actually comes from another holiday called "All Hallows Day" also referred to as "All Saints' Day."

  • It takes place on November 1st, so Halloween comes one day before that.

  • So Halloween is actually short for "All Hallows Eve", like Christmas Eve, Hallows Eve.

  • Now, on Halloween, people believe that ghosts will come and roam the Earth.

  • That is why they dress up as ghosts, so that they would be recognized as a fellow ghost to the other ghost,

  • instead of being a regular human being.

  • And that is the origin of Halloween.

  • JR... why? You know, I have so many questions right now.

  • First of all, where did you get that bar?

  • Second of all, why are you even eating on the show?

  • You know, well, it's Halloween, so I just went trick-or-treating in the office, and Richard (CEO of VoiceTube) gave me this.

  • Did you even listen to a word that I was saying about the origin of Halloween?

  • Well, we got it on camera, we can always go back and watch it.

  • -You're going to publish it on Thursday night anyways right? -Unbelievable, unbelievable.

  • Ok, let me make it up to you, I got a game.

  • You know, I'd rather you give me your candy.

  • No! But, if you win the game, I'll give you this.

  • Where did you even get that one!?

  • -Well, Johnny (COO of VoiceTube) gave it to me. -Unbelievable.

  • -Ok, if you win the game, I'll give you this bar. -Ok, ok, you're on.

  • Game on! If Ray wins the game, he will get this chocolate bar. Game on! Fact or Fake!

  • Now it's time for Fact or Fake and here are the rules for this game.

  • -I'm gonna ask five questions and out of these five questions, some of them are real, some of them are made up by me, and we're gonna ask Ray. -Ok.

  • -And Ray is gonna tell us if it's a fact or fake. -Like total BS (bullshit).

  • Yeah. So, Fact or Fake is an easy game to play.

  • I'm going to ask Ray five questions, and some of them are true, some of them are made up by JR.

  • And Ray has to decide whether it's true or not.

  • -Fact or Fake, it's just as easy as that. -Ok.

  • And if you get three out of five at least, three out of five, I will give you this candy bar as I promised.

  • Ok, sounds good.

  • -But if you lose, you're going to have to buy me another one. -What!? Did you just made that up? Can I back out now?

  • What! When did that happen?

  • -It's my game. I make up the rules! -Ok, whatever. Yeah, I'm in. I'm in.

  • Alright, ok, so five questions and here is the first question.

  • -Let's go into my computer laptop right here. -Ok.

  • And this is gonna be a lot of fun.

  • -Ok, Ray, no peeking. -Ok, no peeking.

  • First question: Halloween is the second highest grossing commercial holiday after Christmas we all know that,

  • according to Time Magazine, Americans will spend nearly 7 billion USD in total on Halloween.

  • -However, -That's a lot of money. -on the total, parents will spend more money on candy than costumes.

  • -Parents spend more money on candy than costumes, so candy and costumes. -Right.

  • This means parents in the US will spend more money on candy than on costumes.

  • Ok, so what I think, I'm gonna go with candy more.

  • -I think it's true. -You think it's true.

  • -Because the reason is this: because parents they don't only have to buy for their own kids. -Right.

  • Because a lot of kids come trick-or-treating, so they need to prepare a lot of candy to hand out to these kids.

  • -But for costumes, they only need to buy for their own children. -That's true.

  • -So I'm thinking, maybe, they will be spending more money, because of the quantity on candy. -Ok.

  • -So, I'm gonna go with true. Fact! -So, Ray you made a very good point. A very very good point, but it's wrong!

  • -What? What!? -Yes, it's fake! -It's not candy?

  • -It's actually the other way around, it's actually costumes. -It's costumes?

  • -Cause costumes cost a lot more money than candy, considering the fact. -Right, right. Ok.

  • Yeah, so costumes in total in America, they spend up to like 2.5 billion USD, while candies spend up to around 2.1 billion.

  • -That's, that's still approximate, that is still... -I know, that's a tricky game right? Yeah.

  • -Ok, ok, fine. -Alright, that's the first question and I win for the first question. Ok, that's a big X.

  • Second question right here for Ray and everybody who is playing with us.

  • Among all the candies children get on Halloween, Snickers are the most favorite candy.

  • -Why is it...? Why is everything related to candy? -True or false?

  • -Are all five questions about candy? -Because I like candy.

  • Snickers. I don't know if Snickers is that big of a deal in the United States.

  • -I think Mars, they're like... -Mars bars?

  • -Yeah, I don't know... -You know, Mars are big too.

  • -And Snickers? I'm thinking now, you like Snickers a lot -I like Snickers a lot, that's true.

  • So I'm thinking this is a personal preference, I would say Snickers is JR's favorite candy on Halloween, not the United States.

  • So I'm going to go with fake.

  • -So you're going to go with fake? -Yeah, fake.

  • How 'bout you guys in front of the... your laptop or your mobile device?

  • The answer is... it is true!

  • -What!? True!? -Yay!

  • -Snickers are very popular in America. -What!?

  • What's wrong with you? Like Snickers, yes, Reese's and Snickers are the most popular candy on Halloween.

  • And among all the candy categories, chocolate is actually voted, like, 70% the most favored candies.

  • -But out of all the chocolates, Snickers come up on top? -Yeah, Snickers and Reese's come out at the number one.

  • -Ok, fine. -At the top.

  • -I got two wrong. -Yeah, I got two already.

  • -Yeah, you can't afford to lose another question, cause you'll get eliminated. -Ok, ok. Alright.

  • You're going to have to buy me a candy bar.

  • -Ok bring it on! -Ok, question number three:

  • Children are more than twice as likely to be involved in a pedestrian car accident on Halloween than any other night of the year.

  • So on Halloween night, kids are more likely to get into a car accident than any other time of the year.

  • -True or false? -That's so sad, but I think it has a ring of truth to it, you know why?

  • Because on Halloween people, they need to dress up, in bulky costumes,

  • so that makes it hard for them to move around.

  • Second of all, they need to go out at night, door to door, to go trick-or-treating.

  • -So, I'm gonna go with true. -You sure?

  • -Yeah, because... -You have to consider the fact that there's a lot of holidays, a lot of festivals out there. Christmas, Christmas Eve...

  • -But you don't dress up as a ghost and go door to door for candy at night. -That's true, that's true.

  • People might shoot you for that.

  • -I'm gonna go with true. -You're gonna go with true?

  • -Yeah. Yeah. -True? Sure?

  • -Dang! You're right! -Yes, finally! Ok, good, good.

  • -One point for me. Sorry kids. -Alright, two to one right now.

  • -Stay indoors on Halloween. Don't get in to car accidents. -Yeah.

  • What you want to take away from this is, you got to be careful when you're trick-or-treating.

  • You have to be careful when you're trick-or-treating.

  • Alright?

  • -Ok so here is the forth... -I feel good about this.

  • -We got two more questions. Two to one, JR is two, Ray is one. -Ok. ok.

  • Forth question: Last year, the world's largest pumpkin weighed 478 kilograms.

  • -That's a lot, that's like eight of me, that's really heavy. -Yeah.

  • But it's also very specific, 478.

  • If you made that up, I would think, you won't be so precise, down to the last digit.

  • -478. -You know, I'm a smart person.

  • You have to consider the fact that I'm smart.

  • You remember the last time you tried to prank me on my birthday?

  • -You guys were totally fooled? -Yeah, it didn't work.

  • -Ok. 478. Ok, then I'm gonna go with fake. -Fake?

  • -I'm gonna go with fake. -Fake? Are you sure?

  • -Yes. -Fake? And the answer is... true! YAY!

  • I'm sorry it's fake. Man... I lost.

  • -So, I won? It's not true? Oh good! I got two points! -It's fake.

  • -Ok, good, good, good. -Oh man, I feel bad!

  • -So it's not 478? Is it more or less? -It's actually more.

  • -More? Really? -It's even twice more than that!

  • So, what's the weight?

  • So, last year the world's largest pumpkin weighed, it was actually grown in Switzerland,

  • by this guy called Beni Meier, I hope I pronounced it right by the way, it weighed 1054 kilograms.

  • -Wow! That is gigantic. -A gigantic pumpkin that is 1054 kilograms.

  • -Wow! That is unbelievable. -Oh man, for a minute I thought I got you there.

  • -Ok, so it's now two to two. -Ok! Two to two. Ok! It's like take all or leave all.

  • -Finally, also this game is getting really exciting. -Right, all down to this one last question.

  • -Okay, the candy bar is at stake now, and the last question is...

  • -Number five: In 1970, a five-year-old boy, Kevin Toston, allegedly ate Halloween candy laced with heroin. -What?

  • At least he got a high on Halloween.

  • Investigators later discovered the heroin belong to the boy's uncle and was not intended for Halloween candy.

  • -That question, it's even more specific than the last one. -Fact or Fake?

  • -You got the year, you got the name, you got the heroin, you got the candy, you got the uncle. -Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • -It's a very complete and complicated complex story -Yes, still consider the fact that I'm a smart person.

  • I don't think you are able to come up with so precise a story.

  • -I'm gonna go with true on this one. -You're going to go with true on this?

  • I'm gonna go with true, yeah.

  • How 'bout you guys, true or false?

  • -Heroin candy... -In 1970, there was a boy who ate heroin Halloween candy on Halloween.

  • What kind of story? Why did you even make that a question?

  • -You know, it's beyond me. -Okay, so the answer is... it's true!

  • -Yes! I got three questions. -You totally turned the table. Oh...

  • -I thought I lost it there. I got the first two wrong. -Oh man.

  • -I feel bad now. Now I have to give you the candy. -Yeah.

  • -Next Halloween. -What!?

  • Ok, never mind.

  • Ok, so, next part, we're going to watch...

  • so, it's still VidTalk, we're going to give you a video and today the video is...

  • -Do you know Jimmy Kimmel? -Yeah, I love that guy, Jimmy Kimmel is such a humorous guy.

  • Jimmy Kimmel, every year, he asks parents to tell their kids

  • they ate all their Halloween candy.

  • So, here's the video, check it out.

  • It's time now for our beloved holiday tradition:

  • Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I told my kids I ate all their Halloween candy.

  • Last night I ate all your candy.

  • Why?

  • Cause it was good.

  • You've ruined my life.

  • Hey we ate it all while you were sleeping.

  • No!!!

  • Hello kids, I've got something to tell you.

  • What?

  • Mommy and daddy ate all your Halloween candy while...

  • F*ck you! Mother***!

  • I ate all your candy.

  • That's ok.

  • -That kid was really sweet. -Yeah, that was sweet.

  • -Compared to the kids before that. -Yeah, before that, swearing.

  • That was hilarious. I love this series.

  • Jimmy Kimmel has been doing it for years already.

  • -In 2012, 2013, and 2014, I hope he does it this year. -Yeah, I hope so too. It's so fun.

  • It's so hilarious. I really would like to see these kids getting pranked and their reaction and all that.

  • What you can take away from this is, if you're a parent and you want to do this to your kids,

  • remember to bring a camera.

  • And remember to filter it too.

  • -Because nowadays kids know a lot of bad language, more than you think. -That's true.

  • So, it's still VidTalk. We're going to bring you our challenge of the week.

  • Again, as usual, we pick a sentence from the video,

  • and we want you to make a sentence out of a particular word and today, our sentence is:

  • "Last night we ate all your candy. Why? Because it was good. You've ruined my life."

  • -I'm still picturing it in my head. -Yeah, it's so dramatic.

  • That kid. You've ruined my life!

  • So, we're going to look at the word "ruin", what is the definition of "ruin", JR?

  • "Ruin" means to destroy, to devastate, to wreck, like Ray ruined my game.

  • Uh... calm down.

  • Just kidding.

  • Yeah, but to ruin somebody's life, it means to wreck somebody's life,

  • -to make somebody miserable. -That's right.

  • So, the word "ruin", when used as a verb, means to wreck, to devastate.

  • So, when we say, "to ruin someone's life", it means to wreck somebody's life, it's very bad, and you make that person miserable.

  • So that's our word for today, that is our challenge for this week.

  • So, leave a comment down in the comments section below and using the word "ruined", make a novel sentence,

  • and the next episode, you might be able to see your own sentence in VidTalk.

  • That's right and that's VidTalk for today on Halloween.

  • Thank you for liking, commenting and sharing this video.

  • And remember to subscribe to VoiceTube TV and come back for weekly episodes of VidTalk.

  • And now we're going to go into the comments left in our previous episode.

  • -Take it away JR! -That's right.

  • Ok! We got some comments right here, and we're gonna take three out of the many comments that you left with us,

  • we're really thankful, and here are the three that we like a lot.

  • So, for the first one, from Wushuowei, this is from you,

  • he said, "I had a misconception that VidTalk is still on ICRT, so since 8 P.M. I waited there for 15 minutes, lol."

  • -We're so sorry. -Actually, I'm entertained.

  • But you can come back to VoiceTube TV every week without fail, we will be here.

  • -A new VidTalk. -Every Thursday night 8 p.m. by the way.

  • -That's right. -Ok, Wushuowei, nice guy.

  • -Next is from Rainey, Rainey Liao, yeah, she's one of our favorite listeners too, our audience now. -Yeah, see her a lot.

  • She said, "The people around me always think that I am really kind and patient, but that is misconception. They don't really know me."

  • Really Rainey!? Really!?

  • So that means you are bad, evil, and impatient?

  • Ok, we'll take that. We'll take that, as long as you keep on tuning into our show.

  • Ok, last but not least, I like the name already, her or his name is XDcrazylove.
