Ya Done Screwed Up, Epic Meal Time

Posted by on June 21, 2011 at 2:27 am

Look, we get it, you guys are maturing. You took your little show about disgusting-ly awesome and unhuman main courses and got really successful. That’s awesome. So you started doing ads. That’s cool, whatever. Gamefly, Squarespace, fine, fine. At the end of the day, we want the videos with the insane amount of food formulated with copious amounts of liquor, not the festering piece of crap you just uploaded as this week’s episode.

In this newest episode, the Canadian stars of Epic Meal Time decide that they wanted to take everything that makes the show great and then simply not include it. Armed with a camera crew and a small army of beautiful women in branded shirts, the gang take on the Montreal nightlife, touring shop to shop. They get reaction shots to impromptu loudspeaker calls by Hurley, the Main Dude. They drink Jack. Hurley eats a $100 burger. They drink a lot of Jack. In what looks like a cheesy white kid’s music video, they bathe in neon, drink even more Jack and then awkwardly promote their Squarespace deal. Their “Epic Meal” this week isn’t the half-assed combination of burgers and fast food they hobble together like they thought it up on the spot, no, it’s their own egos as they spend the entirety of the video’s four minute and forty-eight second running length chowing down on how bloated of an affair their production’s become.

Your next episode better start with a mother*duck call* apology.

See the stroking below. A Drunken Mess, indeed:

Don't Keep This a
Secret, Share It

    News flash: they can upload whatever the hell they want. Their videos dont have to adhere to what ANYONE wants them to. They don’t have to apologize for shit. IF they kept making videos like the most recent one, they’re still going to be making money. They make money from their views, regardless of whether or not the views are from people who like their videos. What are people going to do, stop watching? No. That isnt going to happen. The haters will still end up watching in the end.

    • We love EMT, we’ve been watching them since they were putting burgers on pizza (first episode) but it’s just like those damn seasonal shows or clip shows that replace your weekly favorite show on TV. You don’t want to watch those. We know these guys are making YouTube money but they could be making more with the shit everyone wants to watch, I’m sure this video wont get nearly as many views as their others and tons of people made in the comments on the video.

    What an epic food fail.  The less I know how these people act in public, the better.  If I want to see a bunch of drunk fools be loud, I’ll go down to the nearest college campus night life area.  This was incredibly disappointing. Epic Meal Time should be about the food, not the douches that make them.

  • dudez its a lifestyle, not just a cooking show!  the EMT guys ROCK! every now and then it’s good to step back and enjoy yourself.

    See nothing wrong with it, it is cool to somtimes go out and celebrate (in this case for their 1mil subs).
    See no reason for them to apologize either. they should jus keep doin there thing and majority will watch it.

    Wow! I really can’t believe that so many people don’t understand a persona. Hurley has been talking about haters and being ridiculous since the show started and just because they go downtown all of a sudden it’s different. You guys seriously need to calm down with your nerd rage. Internet hipsters.
