  • (footsteps)

  • (funky upbeat music)

  • - Gotta love a beautiful New York City view.

  • Sarcasm.

  • I'm in New York City.

  • I'm only here for one day, though.

  • I got in yesterday afternoon,

  • and I leave tonight at, like, nine o'clock.

  • However, that may change.

  • I may have a couple extra things to do,

  • so I might end up changing my flight,

  • which means more New York and more B-roll

  • and more fun times.

  • But as far as it stands right now,

  • flew in yesterday, leaving tonight.

  • I've got five batteries.

  • I'm gonna leave it at home, but I brought it anyway

  • because that's the responsible thing to do

  • because you guys know what would happen.

  • I would leave it at home,

  • and then I would end up staying an extra day

  • and be like, "Awesome, I have no camera charger

  • "because that was smart."

  • So I'm headed over to B&H Photo right now.

  • Super excited because I've never been there before,

  • and I've always wanted to go, and every time I try to go,

  • they end up being closed, so today's the day.

  • (cheers) Super excited.

  • I actually bought my first lens from B&H.

  • My first L lense, like way back in 2003?

  • It was a long time ago.

  • So, anyways, super pumped to go over there.

  • I heard from a friend that they have this crazy system

  • for delivering boxes to different places in the store

  • from the back to the front, and there's pulleys and tracks

  • and all kinds of just awesomeness,

  • so I'm gonna go check that out because if that's the case,

  • I wanna show you guys.

  • Get a little behind the scenes look

  • and kind of drop the veil on the Hogwarts that is B&H Photo

  • for anybody that blogs or cinematographers, photographers.

  • But I need coffee!

  • I need to eat, I need to start shooting.

  • I need to film some epic New York B-roll.

  • By the way, I didn't even bring any clothes,

  • so if I end up staying another day,

  • I gotta go buy pants and underwear and everything basically

  • because I was like, "Ah, I'm only gone a day.

  • "(blows raspberry) I'll put a T-shirt in my camera bag."

  • Peace!

  • (upbeat funky music)

  • By the way, "Borrow a blender or a board game."

  • That's the most random thing I've ever seen

  • on a bulletin board.

  • (upbeat funky music)

  • Alright, so I posted on Twitter a couple days ago

  • that I was coming to New York to meet up

  • with one of my favorite Youtubers ever and people ever.

  • You guys all tweeted who you thought it was.

  • Shonduras! - It's me!

  • Let's go! Best ever-- (Peter cheers)

  • In New York City starts now.

  • - They're trying to get me to have subway coffee,

  • and I won't do it.

  • - No, $1 coffee! - No!

  • - [Shonduras] A dollar coffee and cigar. Sold!

  • - [Peter] Dude, it's nice in here.

  • - It's like a skate park.

  • Look at this.

  • (Peter chuckles)

  • (grunting)

  • - [Camera Man] I think it's better without the Tech Deck,

  • to be honest. (both laughing)

  • - And the sound effects?

  • - [Camera Man] Yeah.

  • - Let's get Pete a coffee. - [Camera Man] Yes.

  • - How about that?

  • - [Barista] Thank you.

  • No lid?

  • - Thank you. That looks delicious.

  • Oh my gosh.

  • This looks delicious.

  • It's not cereal, but it'll do.

  • (sighs refreshingly)

  • - Okay, now I can officially start my day and be creative.

  • (sighs refreshingly)

  • - Me too. (Peter chuckling)

  • - This is a big camera shop.

  • It's like a whole block.

  • Wow!

  • We're here.

  • We're at the threshold.

  • We are at the door about to go in.

  • Super excited

  • - You've never been this place?

  • - I've never been here. - It's your first time.

  • - For the first time. - This place is amazing, Pete.

  • You'll love it. - I know.

  • Aw, look at it, it's so good.

  • Okay. I'mma go in.

  • [Peter] Ah I made it.

  • - Gentlemen, B&H, welcome.

  • - [Peter] Oh, thanks, dude.

  • - Yeah. Can I show you anything?

  • - [Peter] No, just wanna look around and whatever.

  • - Alright, have a look!

  • Let me know if you guys need anything.

  • - [Peter] Thanks.

  • - Awesome, right?

  • Good customer service here, right?

  • - [Peter] So good.

  • - Look at the tracks and stuff.

  • - [Peter] So friendly.

  • - [Shonduras] This place is amazing.

  • - We've already been asked for help a few times.

  • It's great. Finally here.

  • - Alright, so just for you guys,

  • we're doing an exclusive behind-the-scenes look

  • at the warehouse of B&H.

  • Nobody gets to go down there.

  • They had to pull some strings to even let us down,

  • but you guys gotta see this place.

  • It's absolutely incredible,

  • so we're gonna head down to the warehouse now

  • and show you guys what that looks like

  • and how the whole operation works here at B&H,

  • which is just-- (garbled noises)

  • It's crazy.

  • - So you would think to go down,

  • you'd have to go downstairs, right?

  • - Ooh, we're going up to go downstairs.

  • That's fun.

  • - [Peter] Oh-ho, we got buzzed in.

  • Hoo-hoo-hoo.

  • (garbled noises) Super pumped.

  • [Peter] Ooh, double buzzed.

  • Look at that.

  • The labyrinth continues.

  • - [Shonduras] It really does.

  • - This is like the back of a casino.

  • I feel like Danny Ocean.

  • (employee laughing)

  • [Peter] Mr. B&H-- (Shonduras shouts)

  • - We're in!

  • - [Peter] We're in.

  • - [Shonduras] This is awesome.

  • - Where are we right now?

  • - [Shonduras] I think we're underground right now.

  • - I think we are.

  • Yo, you know what'd be amazing

  • is playing paint ball in here.

  • - [Shonduras] That's true. (laughs)

  • - Just get us a bunch of paint ball guns

  • and have at it for like 30 minutes.

  • Capture the flag. (laughs excitedly)

  • (cool upbeat music)

  • So we're gonna tape a GoPro to the front of this basket,

  • and then I'm gonna take the Joby off this 1DX,

  • and I'm gonna stick it in the basket,

  • and we're gonna send it into the abyss,

  • and it's gonna go through space and time

  • and end up somewhere upstairs,

  • and that's how all the packages are shipped here in B&H.

  • It's crazy, it's magic.

  • It's essentially, we're in Hogwarts right now.

  • - What he said.

  • - This is gonna be great.

  • So when you order something, it's found in this labyrinth,

  • it's put in this basket,

  • and (shooting noise) sent to oblivion, so check it out.

  • Is it this one?

  • I got it right here.

  • Here it is, my favorite lens ever.

  • Let do it.

  • Let's put it in the basket.

  • Woosh.

  • (percussion)

  • (grunting)
