The Knockturnal: Tell us what people can expect from the new season going forward.
Steven Lim: We travel internationally. We go to Australia. We do Japan and this is like our dream season because we’ve been talking about doing a fried chicken episode since season one. We’ve been talking about going to Japan since season one. This is also the season where we take a lot of comments and we turn them into videos. Everybody always wants a ramen video and we finally got around to doing a ramen episode where we try a very expensive ramen in Japan. Yeah, it’s going to be great. It’s really exciting especially for us I think. This is like the one where we, it’s for us I think and also for you know half for us half for the audience.
The Knockturnal: Adam, what was the highlight for you for this season?
Adam Bianchi: Eating fried chicken. Fried chicken’s great.
The Knockturnal: And tell me about what it’s like to have your own show?
Andrew Ilnyckyj: Yeah, I make it with a ton of people who are super helpful in making it. It’s interesting because we have been making videos at Buzzfeed for a long time and this is just how we’ve always made videos. You know, video to video, seeing what works, seeing what our audience is interested in and to suddenly have a show come out of it, like we didn’t need to change anything when it became a show. It’s kind of like just doing the same work we’ve always done, but striking a chord with our audience that is resonating with so many people and has attracted enough attention for it to be a show. Yeah. Not have a show. Yeah.
The Knockturnal: How excited are you that the show is going national?
Steven Lim: Oh yeah. I mean, I think that’s the one thing that has always hard for me when I read comics that are like, I can’t go to these restaurants because you guys are in LA. That’s why I’m excited, because I’m from Ohio personally, and so I would You Tube videos and I would never be able to engage, so finally it’s an opportunity for our audience to like participate in a real cohesive way. For food videos, you still have to go eat the food to experience it. Like you can’t just watch somebody eat. I’m excited for that.
