Do video games make you a better driver?

In the past, I’ve wondered if years of playing video games have improved my reaction time and lessened my panic-response when in a nasty situation on the highway. But the hilarious team at Rooster Teeth wanted to put this to the test, in a way only their minds could come up with. Enjoy. It’s worth it.

Xbox One announcement in under two minutes

I don’t know why I find these things so funny… maybe it’s because marketing folks think that the average person can’t see the fact that we know what point they’re trying to drive home.

5 Guys? Oh my Dayum!

Once upon a time, some dude reviewed 5 Guys Burgers and Fries on YouTube… and he was super funny.

A little while later, another YouTuber took his review, and remixed it in to a song.

And then the first dude got super famous, and recently announced that he’ll be getting his own TV Series on the Travel Channel. It’s easy to see from his first review. The first video should be enough proof that he has a likeable personality!

I seriously can’t stop watching this stuff on repeat. How did I miss this for the last 8 months!?
