Philip DeFranco Sets a YouTube Record While Eating Spicy Wings | Hot Ones



I need both these to destroy my soul and these questions destroy my career that's what I need out of the next five minutes of this video what's up you beautiful bastards hope you're having a fantastic Thursday I'm Sean Evans and you're watching hot ones it's the show with hot questions and even hotter wings and at long last I'm joined by Philip DeFranco he's a YouTube juggernaut new media powerhouse you know him as the host of the wildly popular philip defranco show Phil Edie welcome to hot ones it's long overdue thanks for having me I once I sat down I actually saw it in person rather than on video I got a little nervous before we get started I do want to say thank you for shouting us out and today an awesome for all these years really you were on the hot ones bandwagon early on you're a great interviewer and I like I like seeing people in pain two of my favorite things so I'm down I'm on it it is a different experience but I'm ready all right so this first one is the humble house okay that's right so I start naturally by talking some shop you've been one of the biggest people on YouTube for a decade strong and therefore have a unique perspective when it comes to YouTube step by step evolution what's the biggest difference between a YouTube star and 20 18 versus say 2010 age and accessibility right when I was coming up it was it was definitely 18 to like 45 right the the biggest guy on YouTube at the time was this this guy geriatric 1927 it's really really old-school now I go to a VidCon and there are 12 year olds that hopped off on musically that are converting over and they're the big thing and I think that's what exquisite exciting though is they can come in young hopefully managed properly by parents and and people who mean well but then yeah it's it's a whole new world it's also a weird world do you remember how you discovered YouTube and what you were watching at the time so is this old old series called lonely girl 15 there was this girl that appeared that she was just a vlogger and then it turned out to be this whole fake soap opera thing and then I just kind of fell in love off of youtube with talking cats thanks to say Frank way way back in the day and then when he stopped his show I want to make a really bad version of that and I did that for about four years and then slowly found my my voice did the YouTube community do as much whining back then as we do today yeah it was just different well cuz now we have business issues back then we had sight completely doesn't work I'm uploading a video it's been three days like this thing's not showing up there were a lot of creators that hated that that Google purchased YouTube but I was just like oh good they're gonna have some money you're gonna hopefully be able to figure stuff out but ya know it's it's just less broken what's one thing that you definitely don't miss about YouTube's formative years I like getting paid now that's a big plus I did it for several years just as a hobby just for fun didn't make a cent was gonna when I was gonna stop doing it back in the day it was because it was was killing my grades in college and then one day YouTube said hey we're getting 40 people we're gonna start paying you guys money and they're like it's gonna be a lot of money it was not a lot of money I thought I made a mistake for about two years but then luckily it's Panda yeah we got this German trainers so the state of journalism is something I feel like I could talk to you about all day and I'll start with this where should people get their news everywhere if you're not comparing and contrasting you're getting one source it's one of the reasons why one of my biggest things is giving the facts I'm also giving my opinion but it needs to be a jumping-off point I don't want to do a blanket statement right I think if there are a lot of people trying their best that are maybe working at organizations that don't necessarily care about presenting the full story as much as presenting a narrative whether you're looking at mainstream and sense of Fox News and CNN all the way to a bright bar to a Huffington Post and wherever you sit down and read it feels like someone's trying to make you think of thing if Facebook is suffering from fake news what's YouTube's corollary how are Facebook and YouTube different is information delivery systems near they're not really both places the way they're set up in general your your getting your news based off an algorithm right and it's a problem that YouTube was talking about recently with with with videos about conspiracy theories the algorithm is trying to keep you on site the algorithm favors you staying here rather than going somewhere else especially a competitor so if you are interested in this kind of concept and it might not be true it might be sensational it might be crazy despite what Robert Kensal says in an interview with Casey Neistat weave algorithm right now makes you want to stay there and feeds you more of that same content so it's really really important once again to go out of your way to try and get information everywhere because if you're getting information based off of an algorithm you're just gonna stay in your bubble welcome so with the Philip DeFranco show you're essentially publishing an op-ed daily on a number of topics which is like tiptoeing your way through a cyberspace minefield when you think about the times that you were totally at odds with the Internet what's the stance the opinion that left you on an island I've talked about religion I've talked about capital punishment politics the most hate I've ever received was way way back Metallica had just there was like a lawsuit against one of their fans we downloaded other music and there and they were suing them and that was the most outrageous infuriating thing in the world to me and I'd made this this big rant and a bunch of people were like fuck you they're amazing when you think back and all the times that you maybe said something or reported news that upset another major youtube power players their story that stands out I don't get excited about the prospect of hurting someone's career or trying to ruin them right we're talking about the story I want to think the best about someone but I'm going to cover it fairly as the industry gets bigger we're gonna see more stories like that especially because we're talking about thousands and thousands of new creators that are getting millions of subscribers a lot of which don't have proper teams around them all right to tell them not to do something incredibly stupid or once they do something incredibly stupid what to do and then even to in this particular space sometimes you're incentivized to do something that's of it and then the bar for stupid just keeps getting lower and lower higher and higher depending on how you define it yeah I mean we saw that with pranks it was escalating normally then people start faking pranks to the extreme then we saw people doing insane and saying fake pranks and then some people not realizing those were fake pranks and then doing really serious insane illegal shit and then getting arrested when people talk shit about drama I'm like we've we've seen a worse side of YouTube let the youtubers box each other I don't care I think that's really interesting and no one's gonna throw a fake bomb at someone in public this next one is the hot one sauce okay so I legally based off what I saw I never say is just amazing mmm dope so you've discussed crypto currencies for when Leon your show and back in November tweeted the trick with big coin is to only invest we could fully destroy you financially and emotionally where do you fall on cryptocurrency are you smashing the bye-bye-bye button are you running for the hills no no I I'm personally have the the same as the the Mark Cuban belief right it's it's a new space it's a crazy space if you have a 10% that you can throw into a fire and not feel horrible about I feel like that's the play two years ago right it was like it was known by people but it wasn't known by everybody when everyone went back last Thanksgiving and the grandma was asking them about cryptocurrency that's when you know that everything's different right and then also when fucking grandma two days later starts giving you like Hottel advice then you're like okay this is some crazy shit I mean you don't know in general what's gonna happen and I never give advice but I know I'm excited anytime anyone's trying to disrupt the way things are oh no I'm hungry tell twist hurting it has some tang something with a tea it's got some Wang to it I feel I do every current segment on our show called explain that Graham where you do a deep dive on our guest Instagram pull interesting pictures that need more context sob bust out the laptop on a stool thank you very much Steven this is dangerous and I'll show you the picture moves dangerous you tell me the bigger story is that yeah I've been on social media for too long ma'am first things first what do you that you say this is your first cheap meal and how long like five days so there I was kind of okay I'm at the beginning of it I just we were looking at a different picture earlier today and I'm just like oh my god I've just been I've been throwing myself into videos so much and I focused so much on one thing that I've just this the whole thing is something that I really haven't taken care of listen I died on that you know when we traded those pictures back and forth on your show I looked at that and I was like what the fuck is YouTube done to me like one of these things done to me like I can't outrun it you know it ends up being good because probably without me seeing my footage I would be completely complacent in my regular PDS camera angle where I look fine but it really hides real life the idea of me eating wings and then the pressure of the internet it honestly does keep me doing cardio four or five days a week because I don't ever want the meme to be a thing I don't ever want people to say the wings caught up to Shawn like it actually is something that I think about in a very serious way the Internet is not is not the nicest of places but that can be kind of a motivating thing a little bit but it's also like bullying's awesome it's great right in my head I'm like actually everything good in my life I have because of like a big negative thing or like a bully in some aspect but I was like I'd also don't want that quote out of context where it's like Philip DeFranco supports bullying yes yeah Shawn Shawn credits fat shaming for his six-pack coma I'm gluten pretty good he's got a little little tank so against my better judgment I want to take a wing to talk about the political landscape under 18 and I say that because the internet freaks the fuck out in the most obnoxious way even during relatively light discussions obviously it can be very polarizing especially when someone's on Facebook doing fucking all caps crazy opinion but as long as you throw out the facts this is what I personally think what do you think some people see it as a UH as kind of like a gimme like I don't want I'm scared but if we can't talk about things we can't disagree about something and not fucking hate each other after I mean I don't know what we're trying to do what do you say to those critics the people that's I like sorry for not trying to fucking shove my opinion down someone's throat like a rope in what ways is the most recent election affected your show and the discourse surrounding it I feel like the election kind of revamped the show it was for a while a thing that I stayed away from right it was to be the more lower viewed videos you'd see kind of discourse by people not really engaging but the 2016 election among other things that a lot of people caring about politics and sharing their opinion more and more so I have Hillary clean Donald Trump to thank for my continued career feel like I can't talk until the next one dance in the Sun it's okay Billy I'll bill myself okay as someone who's carved out a liminal space between mainstream media and internet culture I'm curious on your perspective for what happens when the YouTube universe bubbles up what confuses you what amuses you what infuriates you when say Logan Paul becomes an international headline for the reason that he became an international headline originally whether it be the suicide video the tasing a rat after everything the bragging after he came back from his week vacation with a million new subscribers that shit pisses me off because I think that unfortunately is the representative of YouTube to a good number of people and unfortunately that includes journalists who already had a negative opinion of youtubers in the first place there's a little bit little it's a tingle now it's not a ting and it also must be surreal when you become the subject when that sort of thing happens are you like oh hey my message is getting out there or do you see it getting muddled in the media meat-grinder it depends on who's doing it right there there are a lot of journalists who will take the story and they'll try and take any quote they can get from you so that you're saying some negative stuff about YouTube despite what you're talking about is maybe diversification I've had that done but then I've seen more and more whether it be full-on mainstream or clogs taking people seriously you can have differences of opinion but it's really hard to argue the numbers all right so this next one is the bomb all right this is I don't want to put me in my place man I'm feeling so confident okay attack him it's got a belt angle it's welcome I watch made a home okay we're second I thought you were playing with me welcome to the terrordome that's good ma'am no Scoob I don't know why I'm looking like I have fuckin electricity coming out my fingers I like it I like it why are you obsessed with MTV's the challenge oh my god I don't back it up at all because they took the concept of Survivor they're like what if the same people come back every year and there are just multi season storylines hi there's probably a cheaper way to pay for it mmm a lot of saliva came into play there's what I got this I got this hmm die hard is it a Christmas movie or not a Christmas movie yes very stupid question is it is a constant argument between my wife and I she is pure it's not of course it is of course it is it has everything in place as a UFC Fan what's your take on these YouTube personalities arranging boxing matches with each other why not I mean if the ksi Logan Paul thing happened and it was the UFC or you could take some down to the ground why do I know information about Logan Paul being a fucking wrestler if you were putting together a youtube fight card which two personalities would you want to see Duke it out as the main event I think we'd all win if it was Jake Paul first Logan pole two men enter one man leaves whoo and they get the other person's channel it's over it's a win-win all right so this next one is Mad Dog 357 with number nine plutonium oh come on you're gonna be getting the whole thing right I'm going wherever you go Philly let's let me know my hmm got this so you can't do what you do without being comfortable with catching some Internet shrapnel and I'm sure that there are days where your Twitter mentions look like a word stomach sorry which special interest group considers Philly D public enemy number one it's just the Internet and it's probably a problem that's become so normal to me the Internet in general has normalized just extreme reactions right and I'm just like oh Internet Oh Internet I didn't listen because I have nothing to prove alright Philly you come in here you get through it without some milk your whole team's giving you high fives or whatever do this a hundred and eight times alright and then don't drink the milk okay and then raise the ante alright but let the record show are you without water without milk so far I'm trying I'm trying hey here's the thing after watching the the Gabriel Iglesias episode I watched Dax Shepard episode has anyone ever gone through and not drink anything it has happened a couple of times does that mean a couple of times let's never happen on the show as far as the eating of the wings you want to set a record of some sort oh you know hey man you got me out here and and I feel like I can contribute something to this show and I want to leave a lasting impression and I just want to know what that is Dax Shepard brought out an extra wing one time on the last wing but no one's ever brought out two extra wings on the last wing I feel like he should not have on a youtube show an on YouTube person have a youtube record Wow so I would like I shouldn't say this before I fucking taste it I would like to try and beat his record I would like to beat this record and I'd like to see I'd like to witness history yes so this is the last dab we call it the last dab because it's tradition around here to put a little extra on the last way you got that to piece I just did I throw right and followed it up with an uppercut but I'll stick with it oh there you go going in a mountain of dab you know we go filly Dean yeah okay John even mine has don't burn my face off bitch there's more pleasant first unto bomb I don't know why I'm bouncing like that's really fuckin cool off my stomach alright filly d here we are at the final stage ten scorching hot chicken wings in your belly not a drop of water or milk to chase it but before we get you out of here I just have one more question I need a rant titled why I hate Costco by Philip DeFranco what is your beef with America's number one warehouse store oh my god I've been outed as a Costco hater you're not the only one with a laptop full of secrets there's just a lot of people and this is gonna make me sound like a big fucking elitist at whatever I am I am an introvert I feel uncomfortable around a lot of people despite there being 15 people around us that are taking pictures right now and me feeling normal in this situation cuz there's fucking lights for some reason but without in the real world around thousands of people all at the same time trying to get to the same thing as me and then I talked to the camera I talked to the world and I want to chill with less than 10 people day-to-day basis but also I gotta say the the only times that I've ever really gone to Costco or on the weekend so it's just if you've been there it's a fucking madhouse I know that Costco it might freak you out but you're not scared of some hot chicken wings no water no milk let the record show reppin hard for the YouTube crowd we had now do we have extras I don't I don't mean to mess up your thing I need I'm not looking for a championship belt Dom he's doing it for this sport he
