(laughter) (robotic scat tune) - We're here. Hi, I'm Joel. - Hi I'm Lia. - She's Lia. - [Both] Um-- (mocking pronunciation) - We're YouTubers. I'm a libra. - I'm a cancer and let me just read my horoscopes for January and see what my predictions are for this year. - So funny. We're doing another questions thing. What is it? Ask yourself. - Ask yourself, Joel. (mouse clicking) - I love it. I love this series. - We love it when people go (lips smacking) yourselves. - Yourselves, yeah. - So we should call this question - [Both] Ask yourselves. (laughter) - Yeah, ask your-- - It's just ask yourse-- (burping) - Did a Prosecco burp, I'm so sorry. - Darling. - One must never do that when drinking Prosecco. - No, you literally must never burp during Prosecco. - I know, only after. - Only after. - Right, where did we get to? - Right. Okay. - Did we do a teaser? We didn't, did we? - No, but that's fine - That's fine. - 'cause this is gonna start on a high. So as Joel said, welcome back to the series where you ask yourselves a question. This is where we ask ourselves stuff, discover more about our morals, moral compass. - Yeah. - You know, our opinions on things and it's also where you can sort of ask yourself the same question and think about your answer. - Yeah, and we can all chat with each other down below in the comments and exchange ideas and thoughts and beliefs. It's just a really cool place. - Just something to do really. - Yeah it is. - Just something to do. - Something to do. - We like to our drinks, just relax a bit whilst we're doing it. Right, this one's juicy. Ready? - Okay, go on. - Would you rather be, I love a would you rather, - Yeah. - extremely successful professionally and have a tolerable yet unexciting private life, - Okay. - or have an extremely happy private life and only a tolerable and uninspiring professional life? - I know immediately my answer. - I know what your answer is. - You know what my answer is. I know what your answer is. - Yeah. - Mine is to have a very-- - Wait what's mine? - I think yours is the opposite of mine. - Same. - Oh, I want have a tolerable and unexciting personal life but a very successful professional life. Because I think you spend most of your life at work - Yeah, you do! - and I feel like just because you're, it's not saying you have a bad personal life, it's saying it's tolerable and unexciting and actually our professional life is very exciting. - Yeah. - So I quite like the unexciting parts of my private life, because we do have our-- - 'Cause we just indulge in the every day-- - Um hmm. - I think it's the sort of magic of the ordinary. Like, yeah, I'm just gonna go home and cook dinner now. - Yeah. - Like, we've just been at an amazing thing all day and we're really lucky and grateful to be around the people that we get to be around and stuff, but then we just go and we do something just really ordinary - Yeah. - or have very-- - And the ordinary then becomes really fun 'cause once we've been to events and in a row if it's like a premier and then a press launch for something and then this, they're amazing things that we're so grateful for, but then you just are like, I just wanna have a night in that's literally do nothing. - Get takeaway and do nothing. - Yeah. - Yeah, definitely. - So I thought you were gonna say the other way around. - I don't know, Joel. I would love to have an extremely happy private life but I don't want an uninspiring professional life. - Yeah, no one does. - No one does, 'cause I know what you said is true that you spend a lot of your time at work. - Yeah. - So if the majority of your time is spent at work unhappy, and it's sort of like uninspiring (lips vibrating) job, but then your private life, you end up living for the weekends - Yeah. - and living for those happy times when-- I don't know, it's a really hard one but I think - It is. - overall I'd prefer a really exciting professional life. - I think so 'cause I know we don't do these, yeah but I would then do this, we don't pick it apart. (sneezes) - Please excuse me. (laughter) - You haven't sneezed all night and you do it when we're in a rush. (laughter) - [Lia] So sorry darling. - It's okay. - [Lia] I have to just, I had to take a moment. - At least it wasn't on the live stream. - [Lia] Do you know what, that's so true. - Yeah. I know we weren't gonna pick it apart and say, yeah but what if I do this. - Yeah. - But like you would then naturally probably involve-- Your personal life would become your professional life. - Yeah I get that, I feel that and one of the books I'm reading, it's like, don't make your life so compartmentalized. - Oh yeah. - It's like, that's your work life, this is your home life, when it's all just your life, really. - Yeah. That's a good way to think of it. - It's like us going on a work trip but then we've done our work and we extend our holiday - Yeah. - And have like a personal life holiday. - Yeah. - So we're in L.A. but just like, alright cool, our work's done, an extra week. - Yeah yeah. - It can be fun, can't it? - It like melds together, yeah. - Yeah. That's what you get for sneezing out your live. - Okay. - Okay? Oh, what should I wish? - Blow, make a wish. - Um... I have to be more specific. - We're in a rush. (laughter) So we take forever. (blows) - It's not working. - Oh its stuck. It's stuck, it's not gonna come true. (blows) Joel, if it doesn't blow off its not coming true. (blows) Oh it's never gonna happen! (laughter) - Come on! (blows) Yes, it's gone. - It's gonna happen. - Right, it's ready to be hoovered up by the maid. (laughter) Not our maid. - She calls her cleaner "the maid", its so funny. - But not "the maid", "my maid". - "My maid's not coming 'til Tuesday." - She's not your maid, she's probably lots of people's maid. - Yeah. - I know, let me ask you one. Right, so, this is a juicy one. - Mmm. - If at birth you could select the profession your child would eventually pursue, would you do so? - If I had the choice to say that my child could be a - Yeah. - a successful - Yeah. music artist or a-- (sighs) Do you know what, morally it's wrong isn't it? Because you need to let the child grow up, decide what they're into and then do it. - Yeah. - But on the other hand, most people don't really know what they want out of life anyway. - Yeah. - So imagine if you said, I know decisions are hard, I struggle with decisions so you're probably gonna have my genetics so I've decided you're gonna be the next Adele. - There you go. - Congratulations on your number one album! - Yeah 'cause how could they complain about that? If you were like, you're gonna be the most successful sporting person in the world, you'd be like, or whatever it is-- - You're gonna be an olympian gold medalist. - Yeah, how could they complain about that? - You're gonna be amazing at swimming. They might just be like I hate water. But we wouldn't know that until they're older, would we? - No, you would just still push them in the swimming pool, swim! - It's like pushy parents, what would you do? - I don't think I would. I would like to because I think part of the joy for me was that I chose my profession of what I wanted to pursue and it was so different to anyone in my family had done before and I really love that. - Yeah. - But the fear, I guess for all parents, is that your child will just be uninspired and unambitious and will just settle for the bare minimum and I wouldn't want that. So if my child was gonna be like that, I would want to choose their profession. - Yeah. - But I would hold out for the fact that my child would be like me and they'd be a bit ambitious. - Really? - Um hmm. - For instance, I personally would never let my child be a YouTuber. - Oh, I wouldn't not let them. If they wanted to I'd let them do it. I wouldn't say you can not be it. But I wouldn't be like, yeah, be a YouTuber-- - Joel, would you struggle if they were more successful than your platform? - Absolutely, my child can not be more successful than me. (laughter) - So they can't be a YouTuber then? - But you know how every parent wants their child to be more successful than them and they're rooting for them?
