  • - You have a beautiful jawline Keith.

  • - Smile Keith, smile.

  • - Okay, that's a little much.

  • - Keith watch out!

  • (rock music)

  • - Driving.

  • While distracted.

  • We partnered with Kia Forte to test our concentration

  • while behind the wheel.

  • - We're going to try to drive a ridiculous course

  • filled with distractions while not being distracted somehow.

  • (anvil bangs)

  • - Seems like all of technology and social media

  • is driven towards making us not pay attention

  • to anything that's actually in front of us.

  • - You got your apps going to got your notifications

  • you got your tabs open.

  • Oh I got retweeted, that's exciting.

  • - But first we're going to talk to a neuropsychologist

  • to find out just how distracted we are.

  • - I am a clinical neuropsychologist, that's someone

  • who really focuses on brain structure and connectivity

  • and how it influences your behavior.

  • - What are the tests we'll be doing today to asses

  • our attention?

  • - One, you're going to try to sustain your attention

  • and focus, another one, you're going to be switching

  • between different kinds of thinking.

  • - We have to do this for 20 minutes.

  • - You sound so defeated already.

  • - I hate this.

  • - Ready, get set, go.

  • - I think my worst focus, is in like duration focus,

  • like when I read a book I normally get five pages in

  • and realize I haven't read the last two pages.

  • Oh god.

  • - As a kid I was distracted by things because I was such

  • a creative, but I was relentlessly told

  • not to be distracted.

  • - I have to scratch my face but I won't.

  • If I have a quiet location with no distractions,

  • I'm very good at focusing.

  • Nope, stop the test.

  • Nope.

  • - Ned!

  • - Doesn't count.

  • - Certainly having OCD growing up I was always concentrating

  • on things that other people weren't concentrating on.

  • My mind is different.

  • You're trying to beat me and there's no point in that.

  • - Ned, you performed at the 91st percentile.

  • Eugene, you were at the 75th percentile.

  • Keith, you were at the 63rd percentile.

  • - 63, that's me.

  • - And then Zach,

  • - I don't like that the numbers keep getting lower.

  • (laughs)

  • - You were at the 37th percentile.

  • - This is every video we've ever done ever.

  • (sad music)

  • - So we're back from the brain doctor

  • and she told us that Ned was actually the most focused

  • so Ned, you get to go first.

  • - I've got the most to lose.

  • - But before we do it with all the distractions,

  • we're gonna run the course dry, so we have a control.

  • - This is science, ladies and gentlemen.

  • - [All] Barely science.

  • - Oh that was nice.

  • - Oh wow.

  • - Woo-Ey, okay that's too fast, that's too fast.

  • I consider myself a very good driver.

  • When you're driving with precious cargo

  • you have to be very precise, very careful.

  • Oh this is a tough turn.

  • Oh my god.

  • I gotta back up, I gotta back up.

  • Yup, we're good, we're good.

  • - Just look at all those cones, they're asking to be hit.

  • Oop, that's one.

  • Oh this is so fun.

  • - When it comes to driving, I've always been very, very good

  • at keeping my eyes on the road and being a perfect citizen

  • because as an Asian in media, I can't be a bad driver.

  • - Straight up I think I'm the best driver in the Try Guys,

  • I'm gonna say it, there I said it, now that stop sign

  • is a distraction, I will not be fooled.

  • Oh that was great.

  • How fun was that?

  • - [Keith] The course is divided into four tiers,

  • - [Ned] First it's phone based distractions,

  • texting, calling, challenge will be

  • to not look at your phone.

  • - Oh am I second?

  • - Yeah.

  • - What's the second one?

  • Oh yeah, second, the rest of the Try Guys are gonna

  • get in the car with us and try and distract us.

  • - Level three, will be a personal distraction

  • which means all of us have chosen different distractions

  • for each other.
