- Hey guys.
Ever wonder how I get the youthful glow in my skin?
It's Lamarabell skin cream.
Shhh, don't tell anyone.
It's a secret.
I'm just kidding.
Tag three friends.
Have a blessed day.
I love you.
Alright, we got that.
Let's do some selfies.
- Uhh, don't forget about Mrs. Humphrey's homework.
We have another meeting with her about your...
- Ugh, dad I'm working!
- I know you are son, but this is important too.
- Dad, please!
Huh, let's take that one again.
I'm being so rude.
Yo, what's up guys?
I'm so sorry.
Sorry for not checking in.
I'm in the middle of work,
and it's going a little bit longer,
getting a lot of questions.
And they're like blahlahlah.
But I miss you guys and I love you.
And thanks for hanging in there.
And I promise I'll get back to more posts soon, soon, soon.
- Oh, I almost forgot.
- What're you doing?
- Ah, this is my Blinker hat.
- It's just the hottest selling car app out there.
- To learn more, go to blatdoseblinker.com.
If you can snap a photo, you can sell your car yourself.
Why wink when you can blink?
- I'm sorry.
Do you work for them?
- Do I work for them?
No, (laughs) no, no.
I work with them.
I'm a brand ambassador.
- What is that?
- It's just like a person who,
gets a lot of money,
and then somebody tells them what to say.
And they s..
they like wear hats and stuff.
- He's working at your company?
- Well, he's not working there yet.
But I guess they want him to be a spokesperson
- I don't understand.
What does Stephen know about selling kitchen appliances?
- Well, I guess because of the number of followers...
friends that Stephen has made.
He's been approached by several companies interested in ah,
working with him, including yeah, yeah, my own.
- So does this mean you're going to get your promotion?
- Oh, didn't I tell you?
I guess my boss saw the video
of Stephen jokingly throwing that ranch dressing at me,
and (laughs) he found it very funny.
But didn't think I came across as a good representative
for the company, so ah,
yeah, I may be on thin ice.
- You have to take that phone away from him.
- I'm serious, Jim.
He's identifying himself as the real Stephen Blatt now,
even to my friends.
- If I don't make sure people know
that I'm the real Stephen Blatt,
then real friends of mine might get taken advantage of
- But surely your friends know that you are you
and not some imposter.
- Yeah, they do.
Cause I'm verified now.
You're in my shot.
- [Janice] Maybe you could say, "I ruff you."
- I don't get it.
- Cause the dog.
- That doesn't sound good.
- My parents are turned to F.
(footsteps walking away)
- Janice, I'd like to speak to my son alone.
- She's working, Dad.
where is the report
on the Scarlet Letter for Mrs. Humphrey?
- Where'd Mom go?
is the paper?
- I'll do it.
God, that is pushy A F.
- Hey, hey, that lady is the best teacher in the school.
I had to pull strings to get you in her class.
- Please, what strings can you pull?
You don't even have an Instagram account or Facebook.
- Yeah, now neither do you.
Give me the phone.
- Oh, very funny.
- Give me
the phone, Stephen!
- Yo, real Stephen Blatt here.
- [Jim] That's it
give me the phone!
Give me the phone.
Give me the phone.
- Janice, Janice, record it.
I'm using it for evidence in my emancipation trial.
You're hurting me.
