Hila: Or a.. or a chip. Ethan: Dan’s a vegetarian. So I want to go pretty hard Hila: Do you need plates, Sean? Sean: You know what, here’s because like, usually the wings would be sauced with the sauce and then you’d have an extra dab So maybe we should just be like a little bit healthier.. Ethan: A big boy dab. Sean: A big boy dab. Hila: Oh my god. Ethan: I’m gonna shake this up Alright I’m doing a big boy dab. This first one looks like.. Hila: Can you prepare mine too?

Dan: This is the real one right? Yeah, that’s the X. And that, I’m actually really honored to have that cuz it’s quite rare There’s not a lot of bottles of that X. Sean: Yeah, it’s crazy, they’re going for like 90 bucks on eBay Ethan: Are you serious? Yeah, I saw,uh, I was watching the video about it, and I was like wait, man, We probably don’t actually have the X in the stash you sent us Sean: But.. Ethan & Hila: But you diiid.

Sean: You can if you’re being generous. Hila: Oh my goooooood. Ethan: Oh, my god. Ethan: All right, you know it’s bad when Sean’s like, (face), that’s too much, take this Alright I feel like we’re all gonna regret this. Dan: Oh, yeah. Ethan: Alright guys. Let’s do this. Don’t eat into the mic I’ve made that mistake too many times All: Cheers Ethan: I can already tell it’s really hot. Very tangy, citrusy. Dan: Flavor’s good. Hila: Oh, shit. Ethan: Look at Sean. Let’s get a close-up of Sean. Sean: Typically- Ethan: The heroics are gone. Sean: Typically, I can inch it up. Ethan: Really good flavor actually. Dan: I mean it was delicious for the first few seconds, It was great Ethan: I was making fun of that, but the flavor is real good Hila: I don’t know if I can eat another bite because I only took half of the dab. Ethan: You didn’t take the whole dab!? Ethan: It’s fine. Sean: But, you know, it
was probably a more sensible decision Ethan: Cool. We did it. Sean: We made it. Dan: I’m going back for seconds, man. Alex: My stomach is pound- like, is throbbing Dan: Maybe having an allergic reaction Sean: Yeah, I get that too, like.. it’s one of those things where.. Ethan: Do you want milk, would that help you? Alex: No Ethan: Should I be concerned: Are you– are you scared? Alex: No, no. Alex: I’m just going to drive to the local [?] Dan: Urgent care. Hila: My mouth is on fire. Ethan: Alright Ethan: I’m fine actually. I feel like I’m fine. Dan: It was kind of good. I’m going back for seconds. Sean: there you go. Sean: You know, that’s– cuz that’s the thing, we, like, you want to make it good, and then that’s too, like even when I go to– Dan, laughing: Ian tho Alex: Whaddya doing? Are you ok? Ethan: Are you– you’re shaking. Alex: He can’t handle spice. Dan: He warned us that he has a very low spice tolerance. Sean: But not anymore. It’s a– it’s a baptism by fire.. like now, at this point.. You’ll be inching it up. Like when I was at Howl and Rays over there in Chinatown, this guy Chef Johnny’s own there, He does this amazing Nashville-style hot chicken, And it’s so hot, but it’s so good, so I find myself just in this, like, torturous Eating experience, but I kind of can’t stop because the chicken’s so good Ethan: I had that problem when I was in Thailand. The food there’s so spicy, but it’s so good. And you’re just– yeah– you’re torturing– The tongue. It’s just the tongue specifically is very painful Dan: Yeah. I’m there right now. Ethan: You had to go in for a second bite. Hila: It’s specifically on the right side of my mouth. Like, why is it on the right side? Sean: You probably just had some contact, yeah Hila: I really want to finish it, because all you guys did it.. Ethan: Hila, you don’t have to. Hila: I gotta do it cuz everyone did it. Ethan: I feel like if I do another bite, it would make everything worse Dan: The second- the second I’m regretting. The first, I was like, “oh that wasn’t so bad, I’ll go back for seconds” Ethan: But it really takes a couple minutes to creep on you Sean: You know what though, I find it does kind of, it’s like you get sort of a head buzz off it. Hila: Yeah, I just got a buzz. Ethan: Hila’s fuckin’ high! Ethan: No, but, I mean, that’s what they say, spice is a beautiful thing because it gives you the adrenaline rush of being in danger Without actually being dangerous Sean: I’m committed. That’s why it, like, maybe I’m just an addict trying to trying to chase the [?] Ethan: You’re killin’ it. Sean: That’s why I don’t give it up. Sean: It has nothing to do with wanting to perfect it Or, you know, get on top of my craft, like, it’s all just straight-up need that hit Dan: I think some of it is stuck in my tooth.. I keep getting, like, re[?] Ethan: I feel like, um, generally I’m fine, but my tongue is on fire. I think it’s just wherever it touches. Hila: Yeah, now it’s the back of my throat, cuz I tried to cheat it, I was like, “If I swallow it fast, maybe.. ” Sean: That was a mistake. Ethan: You can’t cheat it. Because then it hurts later. Ethan: There’s no cheating, but It’ll get you one way or the other Ethan: How’s everyone, you guys are alright? Dan: I’m.. surviving. Alex: It tastes really good, surprisingly. Dan: Yeah, it’s, like, the flavor’s great. Sean: Thank you. Thank you, I appreciate that. Ethan: So, if you guys want to buy this… Do you benefit at all from people buying this, personally? Sean: No, but it does help us make videos You know, I don’t get a penny off of it, but, uh.. Ethan: You enjoy seeing that, them fly off the belt(?). Sean: Yeah. Ethan: Guys, pay Sean more, I mean.. Ethan: Can we do a Patreon for you personally? Would they be down with that? Sean: No.. Ethan: Support Sean Evans Sean: I’m gonna keep my mouth shut cuz this is always a minefield for me. But uh.. But I appreciate.. I appreciate that.. I… Wish that you were… Ethan: I’m gonna pay you. I’m gonna pay you Ethan: I’m just gonna start sending a check every month. You keep doing what you do. Sean: I need it. Hila: I’m not good at expressing it, but my mouth is burning right now Ethan: Actually, Hila seems, like, in really bad shape. You went in for the second bite, and I think– Hila: I had to do it, cuz everyone did it. Sean: It’s about the art. Suffering for the art.
