Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Today, everybody, is a wonderful day. We are going to be eating strawberry cake for dinner. That's right! All the things your parents have told you before about not having dessert before dinner, we're skipping all that! And we were like, "You know what? Haven't really had strawberry cake in a long time." And it's strawberry season in Japan! You need to hide your kids before they know that when you're an adult you can do what you want. Like have cake for dinner. That's right, kids! You can have cake for dinner! And you can get a Sailor Moon tattoo! And you can dye your hair pink! Simon: I have a feeling parents are going to flag this video as inappropriate for children. Martina: You could put cool things on your nails!-- Okay, so this is something that we haven't talked about before, we're gonna talk about it over here, you guys. Come to the corner! Okay. We've never really discussed this. It became one of those things that was just normal for us. We're going into Kichijoji station, which is a subway station. And it's decked out with amazing stuff like, you know, clothes and you can get your eyelashes done. And like, amazing bakeries and pre-made food that's absolutely delicious. And what we realized is that subway stations in Japan can be epic. Like when we first went to Ikebukuro station when we were visiting from Korea, we were like, "Where are we?" It felt like there's a whole city underneath the city. So when you're staying near a station, you can explore that station and just find so many things. And so we're gonna go get cake. S: At a station! M: At a subway station! Can you imagine going to Kipling station and buying a cake? S: Nooo. M: Right? And there's clothing here and there's an entire bookstore here. And there's like, 3 Starbucks here and like, I mean, it's got everything. Oh, there's an art store. Like, what? This? Okay. Let's go. Saturday and Sundays are insanely busy in Kichijoji. So if you can plan to come during the week, I recommend it. So four really, really nice cakes. S: Four cakes for 30 bucks. M: Just 15 dollars a person. It's like dinner. S: Yeah! M: Cause we're having cake for dinner. S: Cake for dinner. M: So it's 15 dollars a person. Very reasonable. S: That's a decent price for 2 people to have a very satisfying, well balanced, nutritious dinner. M: See? / S: See? Very nice. M: Different kinds of fruits. I was thinking about us. ( Simon speaking Japanese ) M: Migaki-Ichigo. 100% Strawberry sparkling. That's cool because we're having a strawberry party, so. S: Migaki wa doko desu ka? Clerk: Migaki wa Miyagi. Miyagi desu. S: Oh, Miyagi! Clerk: Hai. M: We're gonna get a strawberry sparkling wine, which I was kind of hoping we do, because we're having a strawberry party! And then we bought this recommended-- this one, which is from Japan. So that's very unique and we're having Japanese strawberries and everything. Nice! ( Upbeat music ♪ ) I'll be honest you guys, I hit a lot of bumps. I'm not sure how this is gonna turn out. Haha! Sorry! S: You ruined my cake! M: The cake might be broke, everybody. Y'all, there could be damages to the cakes. If you want to find out what happened to these cakes, make sure you check out the rest of the livestream. ( SFX applause and cheering ) Simon: Hello, everybody! Martina: Hi, everybody! S: Can you hear us now? This is our brand-new version of a livestream. M: We're watching you guys live! So we filmed this video this afternoon. — Yup. M: I mean like, literally like an hour ago. — Yup. M: We edited the heck out of it and we thought it was a neat way for you guys to see quality videos and also live things! S: Right. And my heart is racing because, "Is this working? Is this working?" M: Oh my god. Okay, we have to unplug all stops. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna calm down. Let's just think of it, like. Ready? S: Aaah. Namasteee. M: Okay, we're calm. / S: Hello, everybody. M: Okay. So, Mark Panther, it is really live. Travis Petersen, 'Oh my god. Yay. I hear you loud and clear.' Tory says, 'Diarrhea!' Let me know where you guys are at, where you're from. And if you don't know the diarrhea joke, just accept it. S: Right. M: You just say 'diarrhea' at the beginning of all livestreams cause it's so hard to spell. S: Oh my gosh. I'm just... you're so... M: I'm so proud of you. S: Thank you, but I'm just so hungry now. I think it's time to have some dinner. M: Okay. So what we promised you guys was that we had just taken out of the box, I really did hit a lot of bumps along the way. S: Yes. M: So what we're gonna do is open the box up live with you guys. Because we've honestly not checked the box. S: I have no idea how the cake looks. This could be the end of the livestream! Haha! M: We've got cakes! We've got strawberries! We've got strawberry stuff to drink. Okay. You find out where everybody's from. I'm gonna head over to the cake. S: Okay. So we have Australia-- Let's go over it the cake zone! M: Let's go over to the cake zone! S: Cake Zone! Everybody! Both: Oooh! S: Spinny! M: Now, tell me where everybody's from. S: Okay, so we have people from Tasmania, from China, we have from Midwest USA, that's Mariah. We have Jess who's from British Columbia. M: That's enough! S: Okay. M: Let's find out about this cake! S: What's inside the cake, girl? Let's see. How does it look? All right... M: Oh my god, I think it turned out all right! S: It actually managed! M: It looks all right! S: Daa-daaaaan! M: Okay, so everything looks okay. We're going to take them out, maybe one at a time. S: Okay. One at a time. We just got to pick one cake at a time. M: Let's go back to Simon for a bit. S: The cakes have survived, everybody. I will be able to eat dinner, just like an adult, just like I was told not to. I'm sorry for all of you that are parents that watch this with your kids. I know some of you do that, and you've told us so and I find that very touching. But now I'm gonna have to tell your kids the great lie that you've been telling them. That they can't have cake until after dinner. Well, guess what kids? You can have cake ??????? of dinner. It's possible! This is a scientific experiment that we are doing right now! Because we're adults and we can. And it's strawberry season. All the really good strawberries are coming into play. Oh my gosh, these cakes look amazing! M: Woooo! / S: Look at these. Are you kidding me? We got some white strawberry chocolate cake. M: So this is the white strawberry-- Hang on. Let's get this- S: I don't think they could hear you as much as they could hear me because we got the shotgun here. So point to one and I'll tell them what we have! So that at the front is the Tiramisu cake that we have-- No! Trifle, not tiramisu! Martina hates tiramisu. So this is going to be a trifle, a little triflin' cake. M: So this is some live focusing. S: So this is live focusing. So we got the trifle at the front. Oh my gosh. This just looks better and better as we go. M: Oh my gosh. / S: Oh my gosh. So yeah, English trifle right there with some very fresh fruit. This is, that one right there is just called 'The Strawberry.' I think it's shortcake that they have. So this is gonna be absolutely-- there's only one strawberry there! How are we gonna share that one? I don't know. And then we also have, uh right there, that is a cake in... Move that. Oh! Did you almost drop it? M: No. Yes. / S: 'No, yes?' So this is a cake that's in a melon! I've no idea how that's gonna go but it looks, these are these expensive melons that we've had before. And the last one that we have today is a chocolate one, but with a white strawberry. A little bit lower. There you go. Look at that beautiful, little cake. So the question is ladies and gentlemen, M: Back to you, Simon. S: Which cake should we do first? Should we do the muskmelon? Should we do the white strawberry? Should we do the shortcake or the trifle? We are leaving this up to you to decide right now and then Martina and I-- We're passing on back? Which one of these should we do? V Flower says, 'melon cake.' We have Travis, 'go for melon.' Think it's-- okay. The melon is a clear winner. Wow. Melon is crushing it! Alright, I think it's time for us to do some melon cake from Takano! Takano? Takano's the name of the shop. M: I guess. S: Okay. / M: Okay. S: I got my chopsticks here. I would also like to thank the 'super chatters'. We have a couple super chatters. Number one, Alexandre Loganson, thank you so much for your generosity. "Guys, I've heard your jingle from an old 'f.a.p.f.a.p.' videos of a Russian youtuber. He uses at the end." So I think we might have just had the same like, kits. Garage Band that we worked with so maybe it's not the identical song. I think it's just the 'bop bop bop bop bop.' Maybe that part you've heard? So that's it. So for people that hear our songs in other music videos, unless it's identical, maybe they just piece those together. M: Okay, so. I have a couple things to say. Um, the first thing is for those of you that are joining us now, you have a choice to either vote for Simon or Martina. We're not going to explain. S: Oh, Is that what we're starting right now? M: We're not going to explain why. It's just, you pick either Simon or Martina and then we'll tell you the consequences for your choice after. And then everyone that joins live, we're not gonna tell them what happened. Cause they're going to join-- S: So the question is right now-- M: So every single cake we eat-- S: Are we doing that right now? M: Yes, we are. S: Okay. M: Every cake we eat. S: So, the winner... M: Yes? S: So whoever votes for them the most... okay, okay. So we have 'Martina', 'Martina', 'Martina', 'Martina'... 'Simon', 'Martina always.' M: Alright, so-- S: I think the clear answer is-- M: *????????* Martina! S: Martina. M: Okay, so. Thanks a lot I have won the first battle, M: And we'll explain that-- S: Dan dan dan daaaaan. ??? M: But there's something else that I want to introduce. Ah, thank you, I appreciate your vote. S: Oooo! Yes. M: We're gonna have some strawberry wine. S: Yes, so-- M: You saw this in the video. S: For any new member that joins "The Rainbow Ladder Support Team," M: We will cheers to you! S: We are going to cheers to you and open some of this. So while I open this-- M: These are my chopsticks. Oh, shall I explain what the vote was about? S: Yeah. Why don't you explain what the vote was about? M: Ah, yes. So those of you that voted Martina, we made a rule that whoever has the most votes on their name can no longer eat with utensils. S: Oooh! M: So, they have to eat with their hands free and the other person gets to use utensils. S: So, I really appreciate that because trying to mush this beard into cake would have been absolutely terrible. M: Natalie Pate, I hope that's how you say it, says, 'What are we celebrating?' We're celebrating strawberry season. S: Yes. M: Um, Japan has very distinct time periods, like cherry season, watermelon season, muskmelon season. And you-- ( Wine bottle pops! ) M: Aaah! So scary, big noises! S: Very, very foamy. All right. M: Hey, be careful with your pouring. S: Okay. M: Mine's a Sailor Moon cup. S: Yours is the Sailor Moon cup. M: So right now it's strawberry season. So we have strawberry cakes and strawberry chocolate and strawberry gong cha coming soon. S: Yes. M: So we don't know what this is gonna taste like. S: This is strawberry sparkling wine. We went to the store and we asked them specifically for something that matches strawberry cake. And they recommended this. It looks like we have a new member right away. M: Oh, great. Okay. So hang on a second. Icbm Pirate, 'Could you do a shout out to my beautiful wife Emma?' Hi, Emma. S: Hello, Emma. M: I hope you're having a wonderful day. That was very nice of you. And we're gonna say Jacob S.-- S: Cheers, to Jacob S. M: Thank you for joining the Rainbow Ladder Support Team. You now have special emojis that you can chat with. S: Feel free to use them throughout this video. Well, that is absolutely delicious. M: Whoa! The aftertaste is just liquid strawberry juice. S: Strawberry bubblegum! M: Right? S: And it's-- M: Tastes like bubblegum! S: It's really lingering. M: Okay.
