Watch Chris Hardwick on CELEBRITIES REACT with Pete Holmes and Nick Cannon
By Rachael Berkey on August 15, 2014
Much like Vh1’s Pop Up Video taught you all the weird music video trivia that you always wanted to know, our pals The Fine Brothers bring exactly what you always needed to YouTube with Celebrities React to Viral Videos, starring our own Chris Hardwick, Pete Holmes, Nick Cannon, Tony Hawk, Sarah Hyland, Maria Menounos, Emily Osment, Debby Ryan, Aimee Teegarden, and James Van Der Beek.
Celebs coming together to viscerally react to the videos you went bananas for when they first hit YouTube is basically what the Internet was made for, and The Fine Bros deliver as usual. Each guest reacts to each video with a camera on them. IceJJFish – On The Floor (Official Music Video), Kate Upton, Will You Go To Prom With Me?, Weird Cheese Pepper Japanese Noodle Commercial, ロッテ Fit’s LINK CM :: ゴキゲン出勤篇 15秒, Creepy Japanese Commercial “Inochi-kun!”, and Creepy japanese calbee consome panchi dog commercials are all, we swear, videos that actually exist. Some are good; some are bad; some are just downright creepy and tell you that right in their titles.
After you watch this, take a moment to note the discussion of troll culture, the acknowledgement of very specific casting choices, and Nick Cannon’s undying love for his superstar wife. We aww’d something fierce when he admitted he used to bring her up in interviews before they met. How cute is that?
This video brought out our nostalgic side as each one has some pop-up fun facts that provide seriously important details about the videos in question. The most important things we learned on the whole? You do not need voice lessons to garner 25 million views on YouTube. Even if Kate Upton turns you down, you can still take a model to prom. Gigantic cats can be terrifying. And finally, it’s true: we judge ourselves on our button clicking.
