Remember back when we went to Japan in February? Then the biggest snowstorm in Japan’s lifecycle hit and ruined our plans and film schedule? Yeah, that was odd. Well, when we were in Japan, we did a convenience store raid and bought a whole bunch of stuff that we never tried before, and decided that it’d be ultra fun to try out. So that’s what we’re doing today!

Question: do…any…of…you…like this Mountain Dew stuff? I mean, I understand the drink. It’s tolerable. But in chip form? Good googly goo: it’s so bad! I’m sure some of you like it. But…but…why? You know, we’ve actually kept the Mountain Dew chips, long after we’ve filmed this video (we filmed this, like, a month ago), and whenever we have new people come by the studio we’re like “oh! You should try these” and then we make them eat the Mountain Dew chips AND SUFFER! No one we know likes em, either! Someone actually was kind enough to leave a package by our front gate when we were out of the studio (I’m sorry I can’t remember your name!) and they put in another pack of the Mountain Dew chips. I SHANT BE FOOLED AGAIN!

As for that Japan project we’re working on, umm, we’re still waiting to go back to film the second part. I think it might be a bit weird when our video’s finally published, because it’s all sunny and 20+ degrees here in Korea now, and that footage has lots of snow. Hopefully it won’t be too odd! We’ll keep you up to date and let you know when we go back :D

Apart from our Japan plans, we hope you liked this video. We had a lot of fun with it. Martina had a really odd moment, when she was making different words out of “LOOK.” She made the joke in the video, and current Martina, watching the old Martina make the joke, laughed at the joke. Then the Martina in the video laughed at her own joke. Both of them were laughing at the joke. Then current Martina paused the video and howled with laughter, saying how she finds this girl funny and would like to be friends with her. It was rather…meta, and bizarre.

Anyhow, we’ve got some extra footage that didn’t make the final cut, which, of course, makes it to the bloopers, like Martina’s slobber car!

  1. The “fruit burning” expired juice story made me laugh because I volunteer at a food bank and the volunteers are allowed to eat the slightly expired stuff. Hilarious situations and bad choices all around.

  2. Hey Guys. Just a heads up, on several of your main videos I click to play and it says “This video does not exist.” I click the watch it on youtube button and it says sorry unavailable. Your blooper videos work and the videos work when I go directly to youtube but I really enjoy watching them on your site and since it has happened several times I thought I should say something! Love you guys!

    You guys should learn to read katakana, its really easy and you just have to work out what the words are in English ^^ (and how to pronounce the sounds I guess) Also ONE PIECE!!! Theres One Piece everything in Japan which is one of the reasons I want to visit, its my favourite animanga series. Do you watch it Martina? I highly suggest you guys watch it, I’ve seen many series but its the best (that and Gintama, which I think you’d really enjoy too).

    I just realised that the “chicken drumstick” you referred to on the Pringles Can is the worldwide corporate official Pringle image on my Salt and Pepper flavour (ignore the beverage). It’s sort of spooky they go to that much detail.

    Side note on Japan wrapping. Layers of wrapping and sealing are super important in Japan. It goes side-by-side with the “correct” way to open a package. Every layer has a very specific way to open it correct. It’s a thing of beauty I’ve utterly become hooked on over the years (probably from the care packages sent to me of Japanese contraband a-la fapfap).

    OMG, Kindereggs! Okay, so I’m not Canadian, but we live in the US really close to Canada & my dad used to bring back Kindereggs from business trips when I was a kid. I LOVED Kindereggs. Now, I can’t take them back :( Kind of like wonderballs. They were deemed too dangerous because some kids who didn’t understand the concept were shoving the whole thing into their mouth without realizing there’s like a plastic egg inside :

    I wish chocolate bars had those kind of wrappings in Canada! I always want to save a bit of chocolate bar for later, but when i try it always ends up stale…

  7. tiff_mash

    OMG! One Piece!!!! And your key chain is the ships cook Sanji :)

  8. okay so this is gonna be a random comment..
    i was watching Diaries of a Cheating Heart with speakers on, then i went to the kitchen and got myself cup of coffee and around 9:09 the foodporn shot background music on your FAPFAP videos suddenly played, i ran to the living room thinking,
    “YAYYYY Simon and Martina”…
    then i realized, “oh i was watching a movie and they included that song on some scenes”
    *a bit disappointed* anyhow, you can check it out.. :P

    One Piece! Seriously one of my all time favorite series! I know people in North America like to make fun of it or pay no mind to it because of the horrible dubbed version put out by 4Kids, and to a lesser extent Funimation, but it is such a great anime.

  10. askseungri

    I LOVE YOUR SHIRT SIMON!!!!! Where’d you get it?!?!?

  11. Kika Penne

    I have a korean pen pal and for my birthday she send me korean snacks such as choco pies which are yummy. But… also banana flavored chips. They look like cheetos but taste like artificial bananas with a salty ending. Yuck… (But she also send me cup noodles and other delicious snacks!)

  12. Watching you guys eat the Mt. Dew chips, HILARIOUS!!! Sorry but yah it was awful but so funny. Simon, stop trying to be a piggy and eat food you don’t know if you’ll like!!! Martina is smart in sampling a taste before committing to it. I think Asian snacks are unique and sometimes horrifying in what’s in them or what they truly are…

    your pringles are Sour Cream and Butter. I actually think it’s pretty funny that you guys can’t read the flavor so you are trying to guess it. you should do it more often! Random fact, there are often a lot of weird flavor pringles that pop-up here, seasonally, kinda like the “famed” kit-kats of Japan.

    As for the Mountain Dew chips, it’s not something that’s commonly sold here. it was a limited edition thing, and lasted about two weeks. i never saw them in stores anywhere and the only reason i even knew about them is cuz some of my friends posted about it on facebook. It’s weird too cuz Mountain Dew isn’t even being sold in Japan so i don’t even know why they would come out with that…

    you know that LOOK chocos usually have 4 flavors in them, and they’re pretty much always yummy. it’s funny that you commented on the re-sealableness of the box cuz yeah, japan is the land of excessive wrapping. like, you’ll buy a box of cookies and inside the box, the whole thing will be wrapped in plastic, and then again, each individual cookie will be wrapped in plastic. AS IF anyone ever just eats one single cookie when they open the box. *sigh*

    your 2nd puccho candie toy is probably from “Attack on Titan”, cuz i’ve seen those in the stores recently :p it’s currently the most popular anime in Japan. it’s very very violent, lol. (on second thought, after seeing the bloopers, i think your toy is just the puccho mascot)

    one day, i swear, i will send you guys a package with lots of japanese goodies! and put nice things in it!!! :p

  14. One Piece fan right here :P

    I’m usually cool with any candy (those mountain dew chips looked weird though with the sugar crystals). Years ago I had some Japanese grape flavoured Shigekix. I love sour sweets – I can eat lemon wedges like oranges – but holy crap, this candy is so sour. I recommend you try them, for a reaction if nothing else :P We have a local crisp company here that’s famous for having the best cheese and onion flavour crisps and recently they decided to make cheese and onion flavoured chocolate bars. I’m not sure I can bring myself to try them but I might send you guys some in a care package :3

  16. In my country a dream about a tooth falling out mans that someone is going to die! O_oooo

  17. Sunny? 20+ degrees?
    /stares out of window at snowbank and cries/

  18. Martina, where did you pick up your hoodie? It’s adorable/awesome. :D

  19. Sarah Lacy

    My brother worked in the bookstore at his college and the manager there took advantage of the defective supplies thing. Like they would be unpacking boxes of new t-shirts and she would ask him if he liked them, and if he said yes she would rip the sleeve or tear a letter off and then say “oh it’s defective, you can have it”. My family has a lot of free t-shirts.

  20. One of my friends loves Mountain Dew and drinks it ALL THE TIME. I’m curious as to how she’s react to those chips. XD

    Also, we have a lot of random Japanese candies sold in stores here, like Pocky, Strawberry Gummies and this one thing call Choco Shrooms which I FREAKING LOVE THEY’RE SO GOOD omg. I call them Choco Taems. XD Like Taemin. Mushroom hair Taemin. XD

    We also have Yan Yan and Hello Panda which I’m not sure they’re from Japan or not.. they’re marketed here as being from Japan but their packages say they’re made elsewhere. We also have stores that sell “authentic Japanese noodles” which are actually made here in the US, so… LIES.

    What kind of Japanese snacks do you other Nasties have in your own Countries/Areas? :D I wanna try more!

  21. strongestmachine

    My theory is that Simon actually hates the taste of most foods, that’s why he tries to eat all the pieces at once without savoring the flavor. Seriously though, I don’t understand how eating more at once is more enjoyable. The kimbap episode makes me angry every time I think about it, what a waste! I don’t care how much you end up eating, as long as you eat them one at a time and actually take the time to savor and enjoy it! Blargragg *internet stranger overreacting about another stranger’s eating habits*

  22. Ugh, this video makes me want to go back to Japan.

  23. “Then the Martina in the video laughed at her own joke. Both of them were laughing at the joke. Then current Martina paused the video and howled with laughter, saying how she finds this girl funny and would like to be friends with her.”
    I totally do that in my mind. Thinking about a joke I made earlier and then laughing at it again and congratulate myself for the awesome joke i did. ahahahahahahah, I’m weird !

    Just because chips and sodas go great together as a snack does not mean one should be flavored as the other. Imagine sour cream and onion flavored soda. *Shudders* I just made my mouth sad at that thought.

  25. madelinemaureen

    can’t wait to see what you guys were up to in Japan. Season continuity isn’t something to be concerned about cause i’m sure it’ll be awesome.
    Also really like the recorded WTFs way in advance cause they’re short and you can write more in the blog post about continued tastings/games. Also i’m sure filming so far in advance helps you guys time wise with other videos and projects.

    PS: Can you tease anything about what the Japanese video is going to be about? Pretty please…

  26. madelinemaureen

    glad i’m watching at lunch time. now i need to drive down to the gas station and get me some snacks…^^

    I’M A ONE PIECE FAN WOOWOO!! LUFFY!!!!!!!!
    Simon you got Sanji!!

    I can’t believe Mountain Dew has crisps…. only in Japan I guess? Its a shame you can’t get any Japanese sweets now because its Sakura season! Lots of Japanese sweets, cakes, noodles even burgers in MacDonald’s are pink and Sakura flavoured, its supposed to be really nice but really sweet!

    • Last year in the US Dunkin Donuts did “Cherry Blossom” donuts. I think it was a promotional for the Washing DC because they have their own Cherry Blossom festival in the spring. Or maybe that was two years ago? Dunno. I just remember it being very meh.

      • Suiyoubii

        See even that sounds cool! Nothing like that happens in the UK, we don’t celebrate things that much and if we do, companies, especially international never really get involved which is a shame.

    • Omygod I love those! Well I tasted Sakura flavoured soft ice cream and holy poop it’s amazing. Japan’s soft ice cream is really top notch, they have so many flavours HUEHAJOFHO I want to go back there just for the ice creams YASS. I do not love ice cream AT ALL. :——–D Their sweet potato ice cream was also pretty awesome in my taste, maybe because I love sweet potato.

  29. Suiyoubii

    I was shocked at the Mountain Dew crisps, not surprised that it was nasty (nasty in a bad way, not the good way) Its a shame you can’t get any more sweets, right now Japan has lots of Sakura flavoured things because its Sakura season there! You can get pink burgers, noodles and milkshakes too!

  30. KATHyphenTUN

    OMG! the bubble candies are amazing!!! I always get my friend from Japan to bring them out for me!! I swear I am addicted to those things!! *drools*

  31. I am an enormous One Piece fan! Simon, flaming-foot blonde guy is Sanji (my favourite character!) You should really watch One Piece, it’s fantastic!

  32. Julia Franco

    The Pringles container said “Sour Cream and Butter.” Doesn’t really sound like the flavor you described, but I guess that’s what it’s supposed to taste like.

  33. Nicole Noziglia

    I wouldn’t have tried the mountain dew chips…they sounded gross you guys are much braver than I. xD, On the topic of the One Piece candy Martina I think you should try out Fairy Tail if you haven’t already it’s super fantastic. =D (And also by Funimation)

  34. The last one is Puucho (not sure if I spelled that right) and it’s a variation of HI-chew. I buy them all the time from my local asian import market. They’re so good but don’t eat the soda ones. They taste like soap…

    • KATHyphenTUN

      Really? I like the soda ones too! Cause they are all sparkly/bubbly tasting! :P
      Does the HI-chew have a kind with the bubbles in it too (I’ve only had the plain kind)? I like the Puucho ones better just for the bubbles, and it would be awesome if HI-Chew had them too.

      • I like the bubble feeling but the taste is too much like soap for me so I can’t stand it. XD They need one that’s the flavor of hi-chew with the bubble and jelly of puucho. That would be the ultimate candy.

  35. Jessica Lewis

    Martina, you are on a streak with Rock Paper Scissors! =D Woooot! Go Martina!

  36. What’s that song at 2:40? It’s driving me crazy! I’ve definitely heard it somewhere. It sounds like ‘BUMP ON da STYLE’ from Baccano……but I’m not sure if many people know Baccano :’D

    • Jessica May

      *Frantically waves hand* I know Baccano! Saw it last Autumn and I loved it! I didn’t remember this particular song, but I checked it on youtube and it’s pretty good :D

      • Okay I went back and checked. The song is actually from the Durarara! OST. Made a mistake, sorry :’D

        • Jessica May

          Haha no worries, I’m a Durarara! fan too^^ And it gave me the opportunity to check more of the Baccano soundtrack, which I should have done earlier because it’s amazing. And it’s always nice to come across someone who enjoys the same animes^^

  37. I dont like Mountain Dew in drink form… and I apparently I wouldnt like it in chip form either haha! The Look bars looked the best! Last week my friend told me about jelly belly candies where there are good flavours and bad flavours in the bag, so you can either choose a yummy tasting flavour like cherry or a bad tasting flavour like barf (meant to literally taste like barf)!

  38. Kenzie Rose

    Martina, if you use paper first when you play most people will use rock because it is a more natural shape for thir hand.

  39. Cyber_3

    Those LOOK bars reminds me of the “4-flavours” chocolate bar, I don’t know if they still make it, but I think it was only in Canada. It’s like a Caramilk bar but 2 squares are filled with vanilla cream, 2 squares are filled with caramel, 2 squares are filled with chocolate cream, and 2 squares are filled with butterrum cream. I used to split the bar down the middle to eat one square of each and then eat the other half later.

    Great video, great framing and editing and so funny! Maybe having Leigh (instead of no one) behind the camera causes Simon to ham it up more, because his local audience is bigger? Other than the giant eating (I understand Simon, you have 3 women instead of just one to fight for food now), I haven’t really noticed him getting louder on camera.
