That week you all really liked my cruello trailer reaction video. Where are the fucking dogs? This week I'll be reacting to a trailer for a movie which I honestly thought came out like a year ago, free guy. Apparently it's this augustly, you also have a guest reactor this we gue. Oh yeah, or who was not? Apparently everyone else was too busy over on Disney plus. Say Hello Cork, hello made of rocks. Thank you for having Me Pool, sorry you did, Jesus Christ. Let's take a look. My name is guy. So he's named guy like the movies title. It's pretty clever. Is that the greatest couple of coffee of all time? Monday's my right show set its cost for a second. Let everyone comment first. Or this trailer gives away too much, or Ryan Reynolds is just me, which is super insulting, by the way. Hold on at the bank. I thought I had everything I needed, but then I met her, jody calmer. God, I love her so much. I hope they don't fridge her. What's fridging? Well, it's the practice of killing off or hurting a female character in order to motivate or torture the main character, also known as Deadpool to thank you for the ground. Everybody accept you. There's something...

...inside you, guys. They expected you just facest situation. These are okay, fine, trick glasses or something. It's about truck glasses. Glass tricker, please, the guy responsible for this world? Any thoughts on our villain, cord and the two lower ones? And that's it, as time is cory. Yeah, trademark infringement. That mean that nothing you do matters? I'm sitting here with my best friend, trying to help him get to a tough time. Now that's not real. I don't know what he is, I know this world. Look at him go, little blue shirt face is so punchable. Thanks, great guy. Woll enjoy your lifetime supply of virginity. Okay, go. That's what good guard routine as ruining the game terminatum. Let's take a white et. He seems quite nice actually, rabbit, maybe this is the live action thumper we all haven't been waiting for. Don't work. That's the ball, you useless body air bag. Love it. Okay, this looks fun enough. In the last days of Fox firesale, kind of. I'm away from my next movie here. You know what I'm I'm going to give it to get it. Four out of five Avocados court. I was raised by Avocados. Oh my God, tell me now, any tips on getting too the mcu their cork. have a dream, chase it, lose that dream. Just sabotage all sorts of happiness in pursuit of that dream. Climb up to the peaks of that mountain and when you get to the top, land of the bottom and realize you're never gonna achieve that dream. And at that point, check your emails. Maybe we'll get something from your agents saying Mama wants to took. Yeah, I prefer dark world. That was really good. Shit. Oh, that's fantastic. That was I like how I brought him in. Oh my God, that's fantastic. I didn't know I wanted a deadpool CORG team up aday. I didn't think about like. I forgot. He Directs Free Guy, like. I mean, I didn't know that. I can't he's a director. Yeah, I...

...don't know, it was a director, but shit, that's fuck it. That was fucking but if that's the end, if that's dead that's that Alligat mcu. Was that the best? That's the best. That is I am so happy. That is made my day. That is absolutely made my day. If dark world, I said, what a fuck you, oh man. Okay, so it's a trailer for Free Guy, but it's a deaser for deadpool three. Yeah, that's I think that's that's too. That that's two birds, one stone, like type, like yeah, the trailer for free guys and I love the I love the shot he's taking it. All the fucking Youtube Reaction Dick Holes, just, Oh my God. Yeah, that was that was some of the funniest Shit I've I've seen in a while. That was and that was incredibly on brand with with deadpool. Like, if I'M gonna get a Deadpool, finally coming to the mcu teaser, that's that's how I wanted done. Like the fourth or fourth wall. Just smash it. And this sends like a last days of Fox Fire Sale. Okay, that's so fucking true, though that is that's also kind of want to see free guy, but that's I really want to see the guy every single one of his movies. I can't pronounce his name. Take Hytt, take a y TD. Yeah, I love every single wims fantastic. Jojo Rabbit's amazing. Jojo rabbits fantastic. That is a it's an underrated movie. Okays, IT WAS SUPER INDIE. It was only showing it the NEON. My brother took me to go see it. I was like, this is one of the best things I've ever seen. Well, I think my thing is to is like, would he be able to do that? Maybe if he didn't play Hitler, if he chose somebody else to play Hitler, would have been no, because because at that point you gotta own it. Yeah, he's owning any he owns. I mean yeah, directly, but he owned Hitler like. Not only that, it's the what they did with Hitler, which is up until you know, for the longest time when the kid is still kind of hero worshiping Hitler and it's still very like Pro Nazi, Hitler's portrayed as a fucking idiot. Yeah, and it's only until the kid starts turning away from that that Hitler start turning into a real dick. Yeah, yeah, especially like when it gets to the point where it's post Hitler suicide and he's just get the fucking chunk missing out of his head or whatever. And but like, but just the way he portrays he gets like, you know, I don't understand why the girls don't like you. Man, you look got the best body in your grave, the other good book, Best Looking Kid in school. Yeah, but it's just yeah, it's only way you could pull that off. Yeah, it was. That's a that's a fantastic movie. It's so if you have, if you haven't, send when when you find out the MOM's dead, just Jesus, well, that's for that. Focused on her. Yeah, shoes. That can reveal. Man. I'm like, it's like this is going to come back to haun me and Shell. The entire time we, like I was saying, I was watching, like why are they focusing on our shoes so much? Yeah, you're setting up for something. Yeah, that that of this was directed by...

Quentin Tarantino. Yeah, but the shoes were in. Yeah, I mean that there's no feat, there's shoes, just shoes. Yeah, and but it was but also like just getting to see like their relationship and and really seeing kind of it was. Give me, it was satirical of the Pro Nazi war effort, but that's also not super far off from how things were. Yeah, they were recruiting him at a really young age for throwing out propaganda and shit. One of my favorite scenes in that movie is a at the end where what's the actor's name? Oh, Sam Rockwell, Sam rock well, make sure the kids survives. Yeah, by like basically, I can't remember why. He's like, he's like get out of your g calls ours calling him a Jew. Yeah, and and they they the soldiers to get him out of there because he thinks he can, so that he doesn't think that he's like collaborator. And Yeah, because he knows the fucking kill him. And Yeah, now, yeah, that getting to see his Sam Rockwell's evolution throughout the whole movie of him quietly starting to protect Jojo and not necessarily to become a good guy, but just want to just realizing, like this is bigger than this kid. Yeah, and then only that he got to wear the outfit he wanted to wear. And final, that's true. Yeah, he's so. And then fucking rebel Wilson randomly showing up there is the other. Yeah, putting a gun the kids hands and sending them off out down the street. And Yeah, it was. I kept thinking like, like I kept waiting for them to drop the ball, that like the dad had died or something like that, and which, you know, there's never ruining. A whole lot of revolution with the DAD. But that movie was so but it's so. It's like a hy TD. It's great, fucking director, Games van Tessa. Man, that deadpool clip was something else. I am so ready for Deadpool to get into the mcu and I didn't realize how much I wanted a deadpool court team up until now. It Taiga Whitetd. I love take a white tt so much.

My brother brought this up to me because it kind of relates back to we were talking about last week with the SNL stuff. Yeah, it was the guys on there's this podcast called this is important. It's a work of Hollis, but it's the guys from work a Hollid. Yeah, this week's episode they were talking about their favorite Jim carrey movies. Really it thought they brought up like that like audition for us, and L was on in living color and they were talking like one of them was they a they kept just quoting it. I'm going to insert a clip of it or something right here. Favorite Jim Carrey Movie Guy. I know you don't like this, but he's got some of those serious ones unders. You know, are we able to have the two or we able to just kind of a man? You can pick your shit. I'll go first. I'll go first and give people time. I'll give people time here. Okay, okay, I will say I love a sin. Sure, I love dumb and Dummer, but for me as a movie, as a movie. Okay, here we go. I know what's coming. Cable Guy. This is the way able guy. Oh Yeah, cable guys, so good, the watchability of cable guy. I can watch it a million times. Yeah, man, yeah, that movie rocked. They were talking to one of them said, like you know, as venture owenager calls some. One of them said that they they want a whole tirade about how much they hated man in the moon. That's been firest and I think it's a great movie. It's for ever since I seen it. I think. I think the thing they went into was how that documentary from a couple of years ago kind of Bin Him and jaded the movie form a little bit when you find out like just how method carry was going and like being dick to people on set and stuff. But then he really loved Andy Cott, he really loved Andy Kaufman. So I mean, I can't yeah, he's just trying to channel is that he was? He did it go a little too far? I mean, who's the really say? But you know, I still think the movies fucking brilliant. HMM. But I don't know. I mean, as far as Jim carrey movies go, I mean my favorites or eithery're going to the also, they brought up the cable guy. I've never seen that. Maybe all it see now. The cable guy is like one of my probably my top three favorite Jim care that's someone I've never seen. Like it's it's it's a dark comedy like I saw it when I was a kid, like when I was a kid, like you know, it's venture to come out. So anything that Jim Carrey did, you know, like the mask, like I would watch and then the things that my parents want let me watch because I was a kid. So my mom rented it one day for us to watch together and not neither of US knowing how fucking dark the movie gets. It's the movie gets really fucked up. It's still funny, but it gets really fucked up, and so I guess a kid, it kind of kind of hit me a little weird, but it's and it's also, I think, Ben Stiller's first directing job. I never directed that. He directed it. Yeah, he's got a bit part in it, but he directed. I think it was the first when he directed. It's so fucking funny,...

...though. Jim Carrey and Matthew Roderick playoff each other so well. Shit, because Matthew broughtocks one of those guys like he's great playing the straight man in a comedy and he's he plays against Jim Carrey so fucking well. They are seeing number twenty three. That movie fucked with me a little bit. I love that. Maybe that's a good movie. I saw that one in college. That was like on a Halloween movie night or something like that, and so he was getting number twenty three. Yeah, like I felt like I don't know how many non serious, noncommon comedia crols he's done. Number twenty two. A man on the moon. I'm man, I we can say that's the Majestic Jersey. That six grade. I love that movie so much. Truman show, yeah, Truman shows up there, I think. Is that one was because the cable guy bombed the box office. Okay, because people went to go see it not knowing how dark it was going to be and then kind of came out of it feeling weird's a word of mouth kind of heard the box I still made money. Didn't bomb phrase that. It made money, but not as much as they were hoping because, especially because they paid him a shitload of money for it. That was actually a role that was originally written for Chris Farley to really yeah, found that out. He was he had been cast and then he died, so they went through the pasting process again. But yeah, the majestic is one of my favorites. But Truman show, kind of like cable guy, got pitched as a traditional Jim Carrey comedy and all the advertising doing. Every went to go see it and realize that's not what it was. But I love Truman show it's a great movie. That's that's such that. Again, that's a mind fuck of a movie as you watch this shit unravel, hm, as you kind of start to discover exactly what's going on around him. It's yeah, that movie is that. I love the ending. I love how he just walks out and that's it. That as you do in that situation. Same thing. I'd probably kill myself really, honest to God, I'd prove if I found out my entire life had been orchestrated like that, I'd probably kill myself. I don't know what I would do. I mean there's a joke I would look legitly. Probably killing myself about my Dick Alis like film me. Now, motherfuckers are this bitch is stuff like. Yeah, that movie was, especially when he really starts, like when he's like, you know, got the holding the knife to his wife's throat, because he's just like, who the fuck are you people? And Yeah, be He isn't done a lot of serious stuff. What, okay, now, go ahead. So well, I feel like there's like a story that he also didn't do movies, speck a little bit fun a long time because he didn't want to pay child support. That I hadn't heard. I had her. I know that they when the child turned eighteen. So damn movies. That's that's I don't know that's true. I've never heard that before. But there was what he just in the movies like a really long time. I had I had always heard that man the moon fucked him up so bad that he kind of just started to lose interest in acting, because I'm going to know because he did. I think one of the last things he did before he really kind of faded out was, correctly Internet, if I'm right, of the timeline,...

...but series when fortunate events. But he played account. Okay, that or he did that that weird animated Christmas Carol, I mean pull up as IMDP. But yeah, I know he started kind of doing he kind of stopped being a big star because he stopped doing every other comedy script that came by and a lot of people thought it was because of just he got fucked up in the head from doing man in the moon. Let's see, it was the last man, internal sunshafts, Botas Mine, sonic the Hedgehog. He was good in that. It's not a bad movie. Actually sight that jog. It's probably the best video game movie. We've had CAFFREY I was on kick ass. KICKASS. He's good and he hated. He hated that movie. Did he really? He said he didn't realize how violent it was going to be when he signed on to it. They because they really like stepped the violent level up, especially for his character, and he said that afterwards he kind of regretted doing it because he doesn't like all like the Super Hardcore violence and stuff in movie. Me Swhich I can actually see. Try think others weird to think of from the guy that called out of the robot Rhino's ass, but but there's no blood. But that's that. You talk about a legendary Jim Carrey seen working is what call his way out of the back of that Rhino. I was forgot. who wasn't Batman for ever been. I realized that's like how much. Yeah movie. Yes, man, I like that movie. I don't like Zoe. They should know, but I like that movie a lot. Liar, I love like wire wires, brilliant. That was one of the best ones, one of the one. I hated the mask. Really never liked it. Really, this is fucking stupid. I love that. I don't know what it was. I don't know yet. Richard Jenny. Yeah, it fucking Cameron Diazz don't know why. I Never Huh. That's interesting. I know it. I think it's very weird. Like I was what I was in college. Took a class on like special effects and that was one of the movies we actually studied because, like that was in Ilm, which is George Lucas a special effects company, of the ones that did that. I think it's if you guys like wow, this guy has a mask and make some to all this stuff. That's fair. It was a so what's funny is it's the it's supposed to be the mask of low key. Oh, is it really? You go see Ben Stein and he's like yeah, this is a mask in fashion dis attribute, like you know Locky, the God of mischief. Huh, the mask, and it's based off a comic book, but it did in no way is anything like the fucking comic. But that's why, I think that's why it's it's just a mask, like because in the comics he's kind of a he's kind of a deadpool rip off the ultra violent, super jokey fourth law breaking kind of Shit. But I don't know, like that. I always the movie always makes me laugh. Jim Carrey is a comedy legend who Shaked my childhood and my comedy upbringing for decades and to this day some of...

And I'm like, I'm like, don't you cat and then they're like Ron Perl movie playing often this primal. Fuck, I'm gonna see this movie. Yeah, damn it, how he gets so many gray rolls. Let him make this old boy three fuck. I like David Harbor. That movie wasn't good. Like and he fucking hates trump. So Goddamn, oh my God, the stuff of him on twitter, going back and were with Ted Cruise. Yeah, God, was some of the Best Shit I've ever seen in my last look like the Tad big guy that would be like. If you would told me he was a raging conservative, I would a hundred percent believe yeah, but he is massively liberal and just like hell boy, he fucking loves cats. LE's way. It's like also David Tisas, also kind of masterly liberal, as what various show's dinofrio and Vincent. Thena frios twitter on to on top of just being a genuinely nice person, like he'll tweet happy birthday to his followers when it's their birthday, and Shit, he's a very nice guy. He is notoriously anti trump, that's so wild. Yeah, very liberal Denofros, like one of the nicest guys in Hollywood. It's crazy. Somebody, somebody share this thing on facebook that it was a picture of Brendan Fraser and it said the hollywoods. It's like, it's like reporters are have been issued statements of Brendan Fraser's Co Co actors, alleging that he is one of the nicest guys in Hollywood, and it's like you took six months off my life. You asked how. I thought you're about to say something fucked up. R fucking love Rendon Fraser. But you ever hear about Dave Bautista, sort about Davitissa? How because many packy I was like some type of like where he's from, as like a mare something, he's something, portant, he's, he's, he's yeah, he's important, Baltic, yeah, may or something. So they wanted like gay, like big and band gay marriage or somebody that get married, and obviously petiss mom's lesbian, and he was like I will fucking fight that guy. Yeah, Oh, yeah, that shit was fantastic. He's a very interesting backstory. Batista.

Yeah, Oh yeah, I want to read his memoir yeah, I do too. Holy I loved Bautista so much. Yeah, him, Dinafrio, but yeah, Ron Pearlman bucking that shit with him. And I think it was like Rubia or something tried to get in and he was like don't you start to Rubio. Oh, they're talking about here. What he I was like, Jesus Christ, I was. I was like, okay, let's never really make this man mad, Holy Shit, because he will destroy US eloquently. Yeah, it's not just him going fuck you, Ted Crwis, it's like here's all the reasons why you're a piece of shit, in alphabetical order. And he was inside an Arci. He was in so love him. It's weird to think like hey, like, dadn like there's no way this guy's a liberal here. Sounds anarchic thing. Got Kevin Sorbo, who's a rage and conservative. Yeah, I would think that either. Never would have thought that in a million years. And I love Lucy lawless coming after him on it to Oh, I did not know that. I gotta seem I could find notes from a while back, but he tweeted something and and she fucking came down on him so hard, just like are you fucking getting me. Holy Yeah, kill as you were a princess. Know that's funny. Is She was in parks and wreck. She was. She was, of all things, Ron Swanson's wife, because the fucking course she was. Yeah, she's a she will, because so she works. He works with Sam Ram me a lot. She got a bit part in the first spider man movie. When he first comes out of spider man there's that Goth Chick who goes guys with eight legs. Yeah, sounds kind of hot. That's Lucy lawless. What. Yeah, I didn't know that until like two weeks ago. What somebody was doing this whole thing about Sam because Sam rainy's doing the next Dr Strange movie and they like to Sam Rainy. Did you know he did? Because he cans Bruce Campbell's and all three of the spider man movies. I didn't know that. Yeah, and Lucy Lawllas and is like any basically, Sam Remy's known for just giving me the work with jobs like this. A ton of people and all the spider maybes. He worked on Zena Hercules and others and army, the dead, stuff like that. And what's funny is that in spider man to the's. There's the thing where they're like what, I'M gonna call this Guy Dr Strange. He's like that's good, but that's taken. Well, now he's directing Dr Strange. He truly does live in the marvel multiverse. That's wild. Yeah, yeah, that's Lucy Lawless really. Yeah, go back, if you ever go back, go back and watch that. You'RE gonna be like fuck, that is her. How did I miss this? But now she's I love her on parts of RECAS. She's so chill. HMM, she's just so just normal suburban mom, and of course she winds up with rot swans. Yeah, I was thinking, as funny as are, in pronounced her name Zenia, because it likecause. What fucked me up? It's Golden Eyes. What fucked me up on that? Oh, yeah, because it got zenia on a top in that. And so I was thought it was Zenia Orrir pros, like, no, it's just seeing you, yes, just Zina, Zina.

It's now it's like you're fucking herself up because it's so close. Shit. Now who else is like fucking crazy conservative, like Cha Chi? Not Cha Chi, YEP, not fansie. No, not fansie, I don't know why I said that. Scott Bayo. Oh yeah, yeah, Scott Bayo big time. There was a I think Mickey work is one of them. I think so. Yeah, I think that you work was. Well, you know Gina Corono. I think she's just a cunt. That's not even too yeah, she's crazy, crazy conservatives. Yeah, I'm being censored and all having here. Let him in a pin. You's not allowed to be a count. Yeah, that's what buzz on mind is like. Well, Aaron Lewis is the loot singer for stain. Is He really raging drum? Yeah, I did, trumpster, kind of think here. candace Cameron Bier Dj from Full House. Okay, what that doesn't yeah, that that one doesn't surprise me. Yeah, Melissa Joan Hart all, she said she didn't, but she wasn't a trump's order, but she did it for Gary Johnson. I'm not sure that's better. Or where Kelsey Grammar? What? Kelsey grammar sucks trump's dick hard, really. Yeah, that's why they haven't done a Frasier reboot. Nobody else wants to come back because of that, because they fucking hate Kelo. Also, Kelsey Grammars, never being a huge Dick Hole. Yeah, but after that they're like no, I mean Tim Allen. We all know about Tim Allen. Kaitlyn Jenner is a little confusing, but James Woods, Jesus James Woods, played Rudy Giuliani on a movie, for Fuck's sake. Did you seriously? Uh Huh. Schwarzenegger had the biggest turn of all last year because he's a Republican and he's known for being a conservative. But then he put out this video, I do, going at I don't know if we talked about it, but going how he came to this country, yeah, and talking about going after trump and all that. I was like, Oh shit, and then he picks up the fucking code and the sword at the end that. It was like shit, I mean like and it's like that's I think when it comes to plot the landscape. Like some people just vote party. Yeah, because it's our party, but like, I mean I know plenty of Conservatives and Republicans who don't like trump. Yeah, I have several and my family who are like, we're Republicans, but trump is an idiot. Yeah, I guess just like just like to come out against your party and be like no, like we're fucking like, yeah, what the fuck? Look, I'm Democrat. I don't like Joe Biden. I fucking get San Joe Biden. That's why I bought the sign that said fine, Biden, but this is bullshit. Burn. We got fucked. But that's just twice. But you know, it is what it mean. I would have voted for I would have voted from Mayor Pete. Honestly, yeah, but may Pete, think about may be out of the from Mare Pete it. But Mayor Pete was just so white, Gay Obama he was. Yeah, and I I love my you repeat, honestly, I just want to hang out have a beer with him, but he's too easy's always a little too likable. Now it's not too well, that...

...what's screepy, but it's also like he's too corporate. Yeah, something corporation just back him so much. Bright. He's like that guy. It's like, I'll take your lemonade stam money, because I love you. Yeah, I mean that's some Bernie was and Bernie's Bernie's the only campan of ever donated to me too. Yeah, I've only ever donated and that was. Yeah, I mean, honestly, Bernie Sanders is kind of what got me back in the politics, because for the longest time I just stopped paying attention. I was I can't, I can't deal with this anymore, and you got fuck, yeah, fucked, yeah, I just he was a hero. We deserved he was. He was he was the one. We should have had, its chosen one. He is the but also what I appreciate about him was like when he when he lost the den when he lost them the nomination to Hillary the first time, he just went right the fuck back to work. Yeah, I remember, I remember one. Trump first got elected and they were the Republicans were scheduling all these confirmation hearings for the for his cabinet, like like overlapping, because they were trying to limit the number of Democrats. It would come to the to the hearings, and Bernie Sanders would just go into them late, like sorry, I'm late, I was over dealing with the other one too. He would just show up to all of these. I don't care how late I get there, I'm going to show up and say my piece. Yeah, he got right the fuck back to work and he hasn't stopped working since. As old as he fucking is. He he just cares, like. I feel like that's a the other thing about Barney is like he's never changed his stance. That's why I like killer Mike and those like like, like all. Why can I think of them like they all like appreciate him. Oh yeah, it's because, like he's from day he was for the civil rights movement. Like he's never changed his stance on the shit he's been there's pictures of him like with with the sit ins. There's pictures of him, you know, getting arrested with people. I mean, he has been with it since the beginning. He's never is all. He'll always be him, know, and I think that's the and that's the most respectful thing about him. As a politicians, like you've never changed too. You are, you've done you. Yeah, and realistically he's Technically Independent. Tell you he's the Democrat because he has to. Yeah, because running as an independent, he knows he'll never get elected. And as it's like one of those things. You're like Jesus, like you just you're, you fleck. Can't nothing about DC got to you. Not a thing. There's there and there are. There are plenty who are similar to him that I've seen pop through in the last couple of years, but none on the same level than because with anybody else you can usually trace back to at least one point where they where they flip flopped on something. Yeah, he's never know, he's always stuck to his guns. He's always stuck to his principles and it's been and the things. It's been the right guns. It's been the best it's been. He's been on the side of He's been on the good side of history since day one. Yeah, and it's like I remember when people want to ask him about making like money off his book, like how are you a millionaire? And he's like, I wrote a book. Yeah, that's it. Like what about people read it? Yea,...

...that has when my favorite thing. How can you be a millionaire in Blah I wrote about compete, like another thing is tears, like you're calling it free healthcare as well. He's like it's not really free, like you guys are calling it free healthcare if free healthcare's healthcare for all, but they're saying it's free healthcare as ache. Right, it's not really like well, and also what I appreciate about him is is he has no problem coming forward and saying, like I know my ideas aren't perfect, but if anyone's got a better idea, let's hearing anybody. Cool, this is my plan. Yeah, this is my plan. He's it's like it's like he's like a moderately okay idea is still better than no idea exactly. Like would you rather have something that is it perfect? Like we do it with cars all times, like yeah, my car is not the best, but I don't want to get a new one because this one, it's still still works. It's just not the best. Hm, we do it, but we do it with stuff all the time, and I'm a big proponent of like you should just have a plan, even if it's not the best plan, because at least then you've got something to get you to the next best idea. That's how this country has fucking work. We've tried a lot of different things. We tried lead paint and it worked out great till we realized led was bad. We tried something else. You know, we've tried fossil fuels. Now we realize, hey, you know what, a free, clean energy ready to go pretty much whenever soon as we just fucking do it. HMM. You know teslast I mean gotten because now everybody's got electric car. You're some any more teslas on the road. Now there are, I see I see at least three four a day. And let the electric commerce coming. Yep, the electric Ali Davis and as an electric motorcycle, the electric you know, Ford's got an electric truck coming. Think Ford said they're going to be all electric about like two thousand and twenty five or something like. Yeah, I mean that. So everybody's gonna have to have out, like I wonder how long the before everybody's going to have to be like like, listen, you can drive this car anymore. You know what I mean? That guy like do you like you cannot drive a gas car. That's why I like you go to places like California, there's a huge tax on yeah, or even I think New York does it to the huge. There's a huge tax on, quote unquote, gas guzzlers. Yeah, you know, I mean there's a reason why in the summer months they do pollution warnings and in places like Dayan, Ohio, because they're like hey, listen, there's a lot of up that's really fucking hot and human there's a lot of pollution in the air. Maybe don't go outside today. Yeah, you're just going to make it fucking worse. Yeah, it's the last your cars, like that's my that Tesla's my dream car. Well, and they I know. I watched Andrew Ray was doing a bought his brother one and he was showing demoing it. He's like he showed to give it to his brother because his brother had like put the down payment on one. When they're first getting a nails and the like, had medical should happen? Had to couldn't, had to get his deposit back as he needed the money. So we never got one. So Andrew Ray's youtube channel had a big and he bought his brother. was how he gave it to him was he met him for lunch and he said, by the way, you give me the keys to your car. He goes, why, I'm not drunk, he goes no, and he just hits the hits the button on the APP and the car pulls itself around over he's... because I got your new car. That's so wild and that it's this random tesla pulls up on. Whose Tesla's does? Oh, it's yours. What I kind of want to want to test ry one so bad. I wanted to go up to like people like I've seen them, like, Hey, can I just get your car for a minute? I just want to see it, like I just want to be in there, man, just want to be in there when it's just want, just want to be inside. It's when you inside. And I looked up. I've been reading up on these electric trucks and stuff like that. It's like people immediately seem I was an electric truck is not going to be able to halt. These things can still fucking haul. Yeah, I'll totally. They're just these, aren't. These aren't your fucking ipod batteries in there. I mean these are some astronaut these are some NASSA grade fucking battery. What? Here's here's I defind very interesting. So now firepart fired departments are now have then carry different stuff for car fire, specifically because electric because that's a different type of fire, which I would never have thought about. And thought there wor across m yeah, they got it's fireproout. Water. Water is not help with electric let this is bad. Everything Gettegg Wa.
