    Okay I rarely ever comment on videos, and I'm only subscribed to maths revision and electronics channels, but for some reason I watched one of your videos that popped up in my recommended and I was blown away. I remember watching BuzzFeed 2 or 3 years ago and you guys were my favourite, but it always felt like the video concept was never fully ready yet. It's strange to explain, but it was just so obvious how mass produced they felt, it felt clear that you were under pressure to have the viral element and meet a schedule. But after the first video I saw from your new channel, I just could not stop watching you guys. I had no idea that your new channel was independent from BuzzFeed until now, but these past days I've been bingeing on your videos and I could so visibly notice the difference in quality! The concepts are great, you guys just work so well together, it doesn't feel forced, I can't stop laughing and I just love it!
    After watching this video I have even more respect for you guys, to have the courage to take control of your own creative work and execute it exquisitely. I am so proud of your journey, and a new subscriber. I can tell you guys are here to stay, and I'm all for it!

    If each of them can take their own outside gigs, what if one guy spend most of his time doing his own gig and not contributing to the company as much as others? Does he still get to share the profit?

    I never realized that The Try Guys was an actual business and a real company until they said they went to the bank to make it official and everything.

But I much prefer knowing you guys' life over the try guys vs buzzfeed although it wasn't horrible on buzzfeed either ! :) and like the content didn't get weirder - but honestly - more relevant and Good job :))))))

    “When you’re working 7 in the morning to 9:30 at night, you don’t have much left” that’s essentially high school. Except working 6am to 1am. For four years. No. There is not much left.

      Well, it's not totally the end for BuzzFeed. The Try Guys paid for the rights to the name, but their earlier work remains with BuzzFeed, and I believe the guys are allowed to refer to those videos. I have been binging on their older videos, as I'm sure others have. That will continue to bring viewers to both BuzzFeed and the official TTG channel. BuzzFeed just needs to get lucky with a new batch of talent and program ideas.
