- [Voiceover] What was your initial reaction
when you saw it?
- Holy shit.
I said "holy shit."
I said "holy shit."
Guess who's up to 5,000 followers?
- No, me.
I mean yeah, me.
- Wow, pretty cool.
- Fuck you guys.
How many followers do you have, like not even a hundred?
- Knock, knock.
- [Stephen] What do you want?
- Just seeing how my boys are doing.
- Pretty good, Mr. B.
- We're not your boys.
- Mom wanted me to bring you some veggies,
but I brought you some BrewDogs.
- Whoa, thanks, Mr. B!
- Now, that's on the DL, down low.
- So put them down.
- So it looks like our movie's a hit, huh?
Some guys at the office saw it on the net,
and we were all having a good laugh about it.
- It's not our movie.
It's my movie.
And it's not a movie.
It's a video.
- Fair enough.
All right, well, later, players.
- What's that, Stephen?
- Dad, I'm trying to relax.
- Well, if you need anything, holler at your boy.
- Dude, your dad's the man.
- Why, because he brought us beer?
- Big deal.
- I don't know.
My dad wouldn't let me booze at home.
- Yeah, mine neither.
- Yeah, I guess you're right.
I guess he is pretty cool.
In fact, I probably should never have even
squirted him in the face in that video.
That was really disrespectful of me.
- Yeah, Trey and I were actually saying the same thing.
I was being sarcastic.
Are you serious?
You guys are saying that?
I couldn't believe it.
I always knew my parents were against me,
but my friends?
That one stung.
That was odd.
Maybe I shouldn't have done that to my dad,
tape him like that.
Maybe that wasn't cool.
Now I feel bad.
- Now, I'm sorry.
I'm really, really sorry.
- Who gives a fuck about your stupid video?
- 25,000 people.
- So did you resolve things with your friends?
- Look, look, friendship is everything, right?
And we've been friends for forever,
and we've been friends since we
came out of our moms' pussies.
Actually, we were friends even before that
because our moms were in lamaze class together.
So I guess we've been friends since we were like
deep inside our mom's pu...
And, you know, friendship is everything.
- So are you saying that you resolved it?
- No, I'm saying it was time for cooler friends.
