  • Why do I feel that this is just smosh every time they talk about gen z?

  • This was just a Paul Rudd movie.

  • hey guys i'm a Millennial

  • Hi

  • This gives me big Tim Robinson energy

  • i have a crush with Amanda...

  • Walter has Michael Scott vibe

  • I miss Anthony and the old Smosh 😢 Not saying this is bad, but it's different

  • Is this a fever dream?

  • 1:55 when he said 420 I looked at the time and it was 4:20

  • I love Smosh but it's really funny how disconnected this sketch feels from GenZ XD

  • Damien just makes this!

  • Wait…. So and so is dating Walters wife

  • The board thinking that they know gen z because they know what tik tok and fortnite is is cringe 🤣🤣

  • Linda as a word in spanisb is literally used as what Ian said

  • From the start I was expecting Walter and tevin to be different people

  • I’m a gen z that doesn’t understand gen z

  • 2:03 seems like ryan higa's ninja melk to me

  • The worst part is they’re actually people from generation z who act like this

  • "Linda" is a Pretty woman in Portuguese and Spanish

  • Without Anthony this is pure 🐂💩, miss the old golden days from Smosh 💔

  • Hahah it looks like ninja melk

  • Fun fact: It is illegal to unfairly pay or fire an employee based purely on age. I think it’s called the Age discrimination act of... I can’t remember the year. I might be wrong, though.

  • He reminds me of Michael in the Office

  • 5:32 I busted out laughing at "oH bOo HoO"

  • Micheal Scott's little brother...

  • Peep the drugz shirt

  • How do you do fellow kids?

  • Ian 2011: Tevin, but more accurate to Gen Z Ian 2021: Walter



  • its time for drugs umm thats an energy drink not if you inject it no no no no! youll have an heart attack again!! whatever lol 🤣🤣🤣

  • Kevins t shirt says drugs 🤣🤣🤣

  • This is actually just Ian being Ian. The cameras just so happen to be rolling

  • 1:29 Bruh he could’ve just said that he had found out about the names

  • And thus history repeats itself

  • Lol missed this guy

  • That Ninja Melk reference LMAO!!!

  • Hahahahah accurate man love it!

  • Isn’t this just like rust cages videos “how do you do fellow kids”

  • I lost my straight face for the whole video after he walked in and said "boo hoo" 🤣

  • Ouch...this .... just didn't hit the mark . 😕

  • smosh is unironically describing themselves

  • How would she know Walter is afraid of needles lol

  • Is it just me or would anyone else watch a show with Olivia and Courtney as clueless FBI agents

  • this just feels like a group of millienials trying to be trendy lmao, fun video tho

  • Plot twist Walter is actually not Tevin

  • "Oh boohoo!!"

  • You must have to be young to find this crap funny

  • Shayne's classic laugh at the end was the best part.

  • 4:20


  • Well eventually be Walter when gen alpha comes along

  • Shayne has successfully passed his energy to Ian.

  • Does that t-shirt say rug or drugs

  • I'm glad that ian is still here

  • This is just Ian around the office

  • love the ninja milk cameo

  • ninja melk reference bru


  • This video reminds me of old Smosh... awesome! :D

  • In today's world if Walter identified as a Tevin,you have to pretend he's a Tevin🙄 Strange, Sad world

  • This trigged my fight of flight

  • Major Tim Robinson vibes here

  • I thought it was about to be Anthony again... =c

  • I’m unbelievably happy they didn’t do the “they were different people the whole time!!!” cliché.

  • Oh no... that’s me lol

  • Wait why would you get fired for being to old?

  • so were not going to talk ab how the cover of the video was the beginning of laurenzside?

  • Walter turned into a pickle he's pickle tevin

  • Why did you sell your channel

  • Oh hey look its brand twitter

  • 1:37 linda means pretty in portuguese so it makes sense

  • Fun fact they actually just told Ian to act like a kid. That's right no script, no acting, just pure talent I guess.

  • This is great

  • "If you're a teenager, what's a Tiktok?" Walter/"Tevin": "It's a very small breath mint."

  • Wth smosh has 9B views in total?! No wait if you round it up its 10M!

  • Bring Back Anthony

  • I miss the old smosh :(

  • *sigh*.....Just clicked ona video to see if Smosh would ever be the same as it was back in 2013..... Its not😔

  • Why doesn’t this channel shut down already

  • They just shave his face

  • This is so weirdly funny xd

  • does anybody remember why this channel exists

  • Smosh videos have gotten ridiculously cringy


  • What happened to Anthony ?

  • Shout out to the energy drink. I see what you did there

  • Ziennele

  • 2:03 that looks exactly like ninjamelk

  • I think Ian is the only person in this video who was born before 1990.

  • Millennial who doesn't get gen z: The Ian Hecox story Don't get mad it's a joke

  • this skit is really underrated

  • Love how they kinda shouted out ryan higas Ninja Melk energy drink

  • this isnt funny. its sad. sad that this dude is losing his job because of his age. the rest are such assholes... yes i know its just a sketch. but its based on ageism in the real world.

  • Ian really nailed it with the acting. He's super annoying this time

  • Anyone remember when Shayne was in iCarly?

  • Bruh I actually feel bad for Walter, his wife cheated on him with his coworker.

  • Let’s not forget we’re all HUMANS. Hello brothers and sisters. No need for generation wars to create more division amongst ourselves.
