AWW HELL! YouTube did it again! We did what we were told to do, and it still died. But we noticed that it died at the 30 minute mark or so, which is roughly where our last LiveChat died as well. I’m thinking this is a new bug YouTube has, maybe?

BUT WE WON’T BE DETERRED! We decided to keep on filming, but we couldn’t do it live, unfortunately. We just didn’t edit it. WE MUST OPEN THE PACKAGE! ARGH!

So, we filmed this on our camera and uploaded it as its own video.  We’d feel terrible if we didn’t open the rest of the package, and we’re so upset that YouTube keeps on crapping out on us.  Ah!  We’re really sorry, guise. So, here’s part 2!

 

We’re actually thinking that, hey, maybe we should do this with the rest of the packages before we go back to Canada.  We’re going to be gone from the 18th of December to the 10th of January, and then we’ll be heading somewhere else in January, so we won’t be filming anything proper in the studio until February.  That’d kinda suck to leave the boxes there for so long.  Why don’t we film a bunch of separate videos for each box?  By February, YouTube should have its LiveStream stuff settled, no?  But, wait – I’m sure we’ll do a LiveStream in Canada, won’t we?  Or can the internet handle it?  I’m not sure!  Ah!  We haven’t planned much for Canada apart from a few random videos we had in mind.  Hmm.

Thanks to Ken and Paula for the awesome package.  It was a lot of fun, and felt like Christmas with us opening a lot of different toys.  That whirly balloon stick is utterly mesmerizing.  And the ziplock bags!  SO EPIC!  Though they weren’t the main point of the package, WOW!

Ok, back to work for us!  We’ve got a lot we want to film before Canada, so we’re getting back to it.  It’s our Last weekend with Leigh and Soo Zee, so we’ve got to get as much done with them as possible while we still can.  GOGOGO!

  1. Hey Simon and Martina! I recently sent a package from Connecticut and while I would like to see it on a livestream, I’d be totally okay with youmaking a separate video or something for it. I just want to see your reactions and make sure it got to you. Thanks!

    i never watch your livestreams live anyways, so i think it would be nice if you just filmed the opening of the packages without necessarily being live and uploading them after. i always enjoy watching them even if it’s not live, so i’m sure other people would too!

  8. Sara Suzanne Berg

    So at the beginning of the live chat you talked about your pop-up event. And my question is… will you be doing a pop-up event AGAIN? like in Feb or March or something?
    I have so many things going on this Sunday Iunno if I can get over there to gooooo ;o;

    • I’m not sure! We’ll see how this one goes. We’re so nervous!

      • Sara Suzanne Berg

        Don’t be nervous! You two will be fantastic!! I’m trying to figure out how I can work my schedule just right to make it over there in between the time you posted… >< ERG! I want to get the bunny ear hat ;o; and/or a t-shirt!
        Plus, you know. meet you two. obviously. That actually comes first on the list…
        UGH IT JUST IS GOING TO BE SO DIFFICULT BECAUSE I HAVE TWO APPOINTMENT/SCHEDULES THINGS IN GANGNAM BUT Y'ALL ARE IN HONGDAE. and line two is the devil.
        maybe dinner can be done in hongdae instead of gangnam… … … Maybe. UGH!
        I will make it there, gosh dern it!

  9. I think it would be nice if you just filmed yourselves opening the packages. I think too that you get through them faster when you don’t have to answer people’s questions at the same time.

    Merry Christmas!
    PS – Leigh is so cute! xD

    • Aubrielle Ford

      I agree and also you can film the openings in HQ again. It was hard to see some of the items in the low quality that you had to use to stream this time. I doubt anyone would mind since it’s a great alternative until streaming is fixed. I think we’d be able to see more that way better than if you take pictures of some of the items if you open on your own.

      - If Nasties agree we should vote this up! :)

    Really glad you guys continued filming the opening of the second package. It was a bit like seeing you guys on Christmas morning and that last goodie back was like the Christmas stocking. I about died of laughter seeing Soo Zee play with the paddle ball but kept hoping someone would help her out before she broke something XD Have a very safe trip guys. Very curious what your after vacation trip will be hmmmmm. Enjoy a wonderful Christmas in Canada with your families!

  11. toocoolforcapes

    I love that Simon started making cat noises and then the sharpener actually made noise. His face was epic.

  12. Ahhh! Stacy’s cinnamon sugar pita chips! Those things will be the death of me…Great (half) livechat! Thanks for filming the rest for us to see…that package was EPIC!

  13. MrDamakable

    Hi S&M, hope you are doing fine! Oooohhh you sooo nasty!!!!
    Can you tell us about how the Koreans view someone who is handicapped?
    I noticed that most of Asian countries does have some stigma going on about disabled person and as an Asian living in an Asian country, I can pretty much say the stigma IS going on in my country. I just want to know whether Korea view things differently since they are so advance in terms of technology. Thanks

    Sorry for spamming your website….

  14. Leigh Smith

    That package was an epic package to end all packages. Amazing slice of Texan America.
    There’s also several meeting streaming options as well, we used to use them at a company I worked for back in the day.

  15. Jennifer Chang

    You guys mentioned not knowing where to do a Toronto fan meet-up. Maybe Yonge & Dundas Square? It’s super easy to get there by subway and I’m pretty sure U of T has exams until the Dec. 20th. Nathan Philips Square is also a well known spot, but it can get crowded on weekends with people skating.

  16. I don’t think all the Nasties would mind if you just filmed opening the packages like you did today for part 2. That way they won’t have to wait so long to see you open them. Also, you can get caught up on all of them.

    That cat sharpener was awesome! I nearly died with laughter. The whole package was amazing!

  17. ryeoryeo

    Hey guise! It’s me, ryeoryeooooo! I wonder if you see my package from Singapore.. It should be there in your studio right? It’s a plain simple brown box, it may be sad but I hope you’ll open mine on camera! Side note: the package is a collab with 3 of my friends. There’s lots of stuff in there! Hope you’ll like my box^^

  18. OMG. YOU GUYS ARE LEAVING THE DAY I GRADUATE!!!!!! (well… we already did the ceremony but that’s the day we finish school entirely.)

  19. Chantel Sanchez

    It would probably be fine if you opened the packages and then posted a video or photos of that. Though a video would be more interesting because we can see your reactions to it. Who knows maybe some of those packages have some treats that need to be eaten soon!

    By the way Martina Puppy Chow is soooo good! Leigh’s reaction was great! :P

  20. AJC

    Having mail openings under the Open The Happy banner does seem like a natural fit. It does suck when you can’t do live openings, but doing them pre-recorded does give you opportunities to do the opening in unusual locations, have EYK characters turn up (more Fan Man please!) so something good can come out of the live YouTube suckage.

    • Fafou Them

      It’s not just live youtube. I’ve noticed some serious lag to high quality videos as of late. I think it started when they switched over to the new format with google+. It sucks!

  21. Sunflower

    I’m curious as to where you guys are going for the rest of January. Have you told us and I have forgotten, or is it a secret? I’m so curious, yeaaah!

  22. riaglitta

    Aw, Martina needed to do some old school Kids in the Hall “crush crush crush” with Soo Zee and Leigh’s heads in the background :)

  23. Brittnay Bond

    Guys, you broke me for a minute when i saw that cat pencil sharpener….and then i was worried you broke Martina for a moment…. That sharpener is amazing XD

  24. happy that you decided to keep on filming!

  25. Wow those were two really amazing packages!!

    It’s so annoying that youtube keeps freezing and dying but I think they must be having a laugh when they told you it’s because you are trying to do it in high quality…. youtube live streams lots of events like awards shows and concerts, I watched one once and it was really high quality with absolutely no lagging or dying! That is a poor excuse for them to give you.

    On the flipside though, I enjoyed the part 2 video just as much if not more than part 1. It was nice to see you just opening the package and not having to worry about whether you were freezing, it definitely flowed a lot better. Although I completely understand why people like seeing the packages being opened live I think you recording yourselves is definitely a viable option as well…. for example I have sent you a really small package and would be totally fine with you recording opening it rather than doing it live. Maybe it could be an option, people could indicate on their package or in an email whether they would like to see it in a livechat or a recording and that could help you get through all the packages quicker?? I don’t know >.<

    Anyhoo… I hope you guys have a great time in Canada (not long to go!!) and a wonderful Christmas and New Year!~~~~ ^^

  26. Nike Thalia

    That cat pencil sharpener is mind blowing… I would totally use it for trolling unsuspecting people.
    I think that if you have time you should still film the opening of packages or at least let people know what packages have arrived.

    • Haha that would definitely freak some people out, although you may get some questionable looks as well :p
      Have you seen the towel holder version too?? I feel Simon and Martina need a few of these too now to go with the pencil sharpener :D

    • Haha that would definitely freak people out!! But you would probably get some funny looks too :p
      Have you seen the towel holder version of the same thing? I think Simon and Martina definitely need some of these too now they have the pencil sharpener!

  27. Jeffrey van Gessel

    Hey guys I won’t mind if you open my package and just make a video about it. You should have it by now cause I sent it in October. It’s the grey box with a lot of hello kitty stickers. Hope you can open it before you go cause the food will be spoilt if it is going to take much longer.

  28. yiayiane

    The package on the live chat part 2 was hilarious ! How do people find stuff like that?

  29. Lily Snape

    Maybe you can make videos of all the rest of the packages and make them unlisted just for those who want to see them. ^^ I always like watching live chats so it’s disappointing that youtube livechats doesn’t work well now. :( Maybe if it doesn’t work still in February then switch to Twitch tv. Oh p.s. love those head massagers, I got mine out at the same time, haha.

  30. Mykel Battaglia

    Hey guys! Thanks for the post livechat dedication! I really recommend trying to use Twitch.tv, it often supports livestreams with 30,000+ people, so I’m sure it’ll work well for you guys. It also has a bunch of cool features you can use if you want.

    For what you asked in part 1, classes ended at UofT now, but exams are until the 19th. It’d be cool if you guys could do a meetup, but even if you can’t that’s still cool. Thanks again!
