  • Hey Jess I want the backpack! The first thing I would do if Godzilla attacked my neighborhood would be to change my pants, into some brown ones if you know what I’m saying.

  • I’d lvoe that backpack! The first thing I would do when seeing Godzilla is get up on the roof of whatever place I’m in, sit back, and enjoy the apocalypse show.

  • Sup Nerdist? I kinda need a new pair of goggles, like this noice pair that crossed a atomicly mutated lizzard. What would I do if I saw said lizzard in my yard? I’d give him direction, he got lost: no giant monster has ever visited France :/

  • Yo Jess, I want the goggles! The first thing I would do if Godzilla attacked my neighborhood is dress in my tuxedo and top hat, take shelter in by basement / bombshelter, and calmingly have a small glass of tea, all fancy like and such.

  • Whatup Jess & N^2. The backpack is pretty cool but I’d rock the goggles. If Godzilla attacked the first thing I would do is get all the power plants offline becuase everyone knows GZ powers up if he gets hit with electricty. Then I’d probably call Charles Barkley to finish him off. 

  • Jess, I’d love to get the backpack! First thing I would do if Godzilla attacked my neighborhood would be run to the nearest outdoor store and grab every survival supply and gun I could get my hands on. Then gather my family and get them to safety!

  • I would want the backpack prop. If Godzilla came into town, I would start trying to call for Godzuki or find that pager device from the animated series lol.

  • Want the googles. If Godzilla attacked I would call superman with my watch, then have him fly into Godzilla’s mouth, and destroy Godzilla from the inside out

  • The first thing I would do if Godzilla attacked my neighborhood would be to try and take a selfie with it and post it before dying. #FamousOverNight  I would like the backpack! 

  • I would like the goggles please! & if Godzilla was attack my neighborhood i would get my family head to Target get supplies and head as far away as possible!
