took it off and then I lost it um but I always wear this one I've had this one on since my freshman year of high school so I've had it on for like eight years eight or nine years it doesn't mean anything I was just in health class and I asked my friend John I was like do you want to see how long I can wear this green bracelet and he

David

's assistant asking for a friend Natalie became my assistant because she was my friend from my hometown and I didn't trust anybody else I don't know how the process works
I let Natalie do all that I'm not good at hiring people I feel like I just get like connected to whoever I talk to for the first time so I'm like okay you're hired even though I don't like go through the proper means of figuring out if they're qualified or not why does Dave his bathroom look like a public bathroom with stalls my bathroom has a divide in the middle where one's a shower and ones the national toilet but it looks like there's multiple toilets I've had
david dobrik goes undercover on reddit youtube and twitter gq

David

Daugherty his friends 15 who's videos no I don't my parents would ask me this question every time every time when I when I started making videos my parents would be like do you pay your friends as like I don't it's like a mutual thing we like making videos and they were like well you should start paying them because they're not gonna want to be in them anytime soon
and I was like no trust me we all enjoyed doing them so no I've never paid a friend to be in a video is

david

dobrik

dating anyone no

David

you'll break is not gay mr. Cryan how much time would it take to edit a

david

dobrik

dialog I guess it depends like how much effort you want to put into it for me it takes so every video every video is four minutes to 20 seconds long but each video I have about five hours of footage so it's kind of just making like a trailer of the best part of
my day it takes me about like 12 13 14 hours to get it done right now we've been working on one and it's been like two days we just we can't get it right if you don't really care for you can get it done in an hour how much of

David

Derrick's logs are scripted not that much the only that scripted is if someone says something funny off-camera and then we go hey can you repeat that because it'll be funny if you say it again people think it's all scripted it's not how
did Josh Peck and

David

Ober become friends I don't know this one this one's this one's beyond me my friend had his phone number and he called him and he was like hey you want to come shoot some videos with us and surprisingly he was down and then after we were done shooting with him he

goes

hey let's make this like a regular thing like let me come back and shoot more videos and I remember him leaving and I was just like I start like we all all my roommate just started
high-fiving because it's like the best moment like Josh Peck is is officially down to being all the videos this is really cool I was the biggest fan of chicken Josh the biggest fan of Jake and Josh those those these show i watch growing up so it's it's even it's like I'll call my parents now when I'm sitting in the living room and I'll be like look who it is it's Josh Peck from dick it's crazy it's so weird because you you forget after a while that like
that's the guy that you were watching I don't know it's that's nuts in

david

darks vlogs when he's in the car this is tesla directing by itself for his he drive in it most of the time i'm driving it i think they're referring to like when i film people in the backseat so I'll have my hand like this and I'll be looking at the rearview mirror to see if I'm lining up the shot correctly on the person I rarely let it drive itself I had the Tesla there's a
new function on it where it can be parked at like a grocery store and you can be leaving the grocery store and you hit it and it comes and picks you up at the front of the grocery store I try that the other day and it hit I got really slowly like 5 miles per hour it hit a guy shopping cart as he was walking out of the store so we have to explain to him that it was a new update on my car and that was a mess so I don't let it I don't lie to tribe itself what's the reason my

david

dobrik

every vlog is for 20 minutes I would say because I came from vine and every vine was six seconds long so I kind of adopted that and I wanted like something short that people can watch quickly and not have to spend ten or twelve minutes watching what will become a favorite in the next 10 years this is such a scary question because I'm always scared of answering it because I just imagine me like being completely burnt out in some ditch and an edit place of me answering this question and
then it cuts to me like just like completely exhausted and not like working or not doing anything anymore I'm just I don't know I'm taking it day-by-day I don't want to know what's gonna happen to me in 10 years but I'm having fun in the meantime submit take you internet for all the questions I'm surprised I didn't get my feelings hurt I didn't cry watch so this was this was a good run see you guys next time
