Following is a transcript of the video.
Hey, I’m Zach.
And I’m Eugene.
[Zach] And we are The Try Guys.
[Eugene] And we are The Try Guys.
[Ned] And we’re gonna tell you how to become a YouTube star. Here we go! Woo!
[Narrator] Here’s how to be a YouTube star, featuring The Try Guys.
[Keith] Could you turn Ned down?
[Keith] Is that something you can do?
[Narrator] The Try Guys are huge YouTube stars. They have a massive fan base, and millions of people watch the four personalities, well, try anything. First, they’ll tell us why their online formula works.
[Keith] Why do people like to watch other people try?
[Ned] I think you get to feel what we feel even though you are not trying, you’re watching.

Ned: This may be the hardest video I ever have to make. I’m just… I’m so sorry.
[Keith] We found out that our merch that we released causes people to projectile vomit.
[Ned] Excuse me while I sip some…
[Zach] Oh he’s sipping some…
[Keith] He’s sipping tea.
[Ned] Sipping tea! There it is.
[Zach] OK, there are a couple YouTube archetypes, right? You’ve got the cutie, who’s just, like, innocent, bubbly, fun. “Hey guys! What’s going on?” You’ve got the prankster, you know, the old jokester. The guy that just likes to mess with his friends. There are the gurus, people that you turn to for advice, the ones who feel like they got it figured all out, Keith.
[Keith] Then you have hot twins.
[Zach] Hot twins.
[Keith] We only have a half of our… Your twin couldn’t make it.
[Ned] Oh, what if you had a twin? You’d be …read more
