Harley Morenstein, Hayes Grier Serve Breakfast Sandwiches From ‘Famous Food Truck’ In New Special

Harley Morenstein is steering the Famous Food Truck into town. The man known as the co-founder of the Epic Meal Time YouTube channel is the star of the latest special from Scripps Lifestyle Studios' Genius Kitchen brand, in which he puts together some breakfast sandwiches alongside social media star Hayes Grier.

The Famous Food Truck of the special's title doesn't seem to refer to a world-renowned mobile restaurant, but rather to a roving kitchen that happens to have famous people inside it. Morenstein's signature touches, including his love of bacon and his tendency to bleep out curse words with wacky sound effects, are all present here, and his bold attitude drives the special, no pun intended. That said, the vibe is very easygoing, with Morenstein, Grier, and chef Lindsay Ames presiding over a loose, fun-loving culinary atmosphere.

A brief clip from Famous Food Truck is available on the Genius Kitchen

This Is What A $500 Pizza Looks Like

Pizza is a weird food in that you can literally purchase one at any price. That said, a $500 dollar pizza is probably something I'd never buy regardless of taste, but it's cool to se ehow the other half lives I suppose. Would you eat this pizza? It seems to me like they just slammed a bunch of expensive shit on it with little regard for taste, but I guess that's Epic Meal Time in a nutshell...what do you think?

The July 2015 merge of Studio71 and Collective Digital Studios united a Germany-based multi-channel network with a Us-based one to form a single global entity, currently known as Studio71. Now, that network is making another intercontinental journey; it has announced a deal with Beijing-based tech company ByteDance that will bring the videos of Studio71’s creative partners to top Chinese platforms like Toutiao.

Creators who will bring their videos to Chinese audiences as part of the deal include Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, Epic Meal Time, Matthew Santoro, Tana Mongeau, and Logan Paul, all of whom have millions of subscribers across the social web.

Another startup has added its name to the long list of apps within the burgeoning mobile live streaming market. It’s called Kastr, its three co-founders include YouTube star Kurt Hugo Schneider, and it’s now available in beta.

Stephen Colbert Celebrates One Million Subscribers By Referencing Popular YouTube Videos

The official YouTube channel for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert just passed one million subscribers, and the CBS host celebrated his accomplishment in amusing fashion. In a recent video, Colbert turned the gold play button he received from YouTube into a portal that allowed him to act out popular online video formats.

Colbert’s Late Show YouTube channel launched last June, four months before the former Colbert Report host made his debut on CBS. Since then, the digital hub has risen rapidly up the YouTube charts, becoming one of the few channels on the site to go from zero subscribers to one million in less than a year’s time.

In order to thank his subscribers, Colbert offered them an eye-winking video that riffs on past and current YouTube trends. In turn, viewers watch as the last night host hosts an Epic Meal Time-esque cooking show, unboxes an Apple product,

CBC Signs Development Deal For ‘Elebrity,’ An Original Series From The Creators Of Epic Meal Time

Darren and Harley Morenstein, the creators of YouTube’s most infamous cooking show, Epic Meal Time, have landed a development deal with the CBC, Canada’s national public radio and television broadcaster, to bring an original series to the small screen.

The scripted show, entitled Elebrity, explores the notion of overnight digital stardom, and will follow the trajectory of Herschel Bock, an eternal slacker who attempts to navigate his newfound fame. Elebrity is a creation of the Morenstein brothers’ production company, NextTime Productions, which was founded in 2011.

Elebrity was selected by the CBC through a program entitled the Jumping Screens Comedy Workshop -- a five-month training lab aimed to help three Canadian digital creative teams migrate their talents to other screens. The Workshop is a collaboration between the Canadian Film Centre (Cfc), a charitable organization that invests in the next generation of Canadian content creators, and the CBC.

Collective Digital Studio Will Be Rebranded As Part Of Studio71

One of the online video industry’s most prominent networks is taking on a new name. Collective Digital Studio, which is partnered with major digital stars like Lilly Singh, Epic Meal Time, and Rhett and Link, will be rebranded as part of German multi-channel network Studio71.

Collective DS and Studio71 are already linked thanks to their shared parent company, ProSiebenSat.1 Group. The German media conglomerate acquired a 20% stake in Collective DS in 2014 before taking control of it a year later. In July 2015, a combined network called Collective Studio71 was formed, and the new rebranding effort simplifies that merger by collecting (no pun intended) the two networks under one name.

Studio71’s founding partners will retain control of all activities in Europe, while Collective DS founders Michael Green and Reza Izad will oversee the company’s North American presence. “Our stellar growth in 2015 is due in no small part to ProSiebenSat.

‘Epic Meal Time’ Celebrates Five Year Anniversary With 84,000 Calorie Monstrosity

In 2010, a band of daring Canadians came together to create a 5,200 calorie “fast food pizza.” Five years later, those intrepid food pioneers are known as Epic Meal Time, and they’ve eclipsed their first video many times over, both in terms of viewership and calorie count. In order to celebrate half a decade of artery-clogging goodness, Epic Meal Time has produced one of its biggest episodes yet, with an 84,000-calorie lasagna-in-a-pig monstrosity serving as the centerpiece.

Epic Meal Time’s five-year bash is a ten-minute odyssey that includes a heavily-aged version of the channel’s bygone Muscles Glasses character, a Cristal-popping rap video, and, of course, several pounds of bacon, courtesy of Hormel. The ensuing creation isn’t the biggest one Epic Meal Time has ever produced--i’m pretty sure that distinction goes to the “Snack Stadium” episode--but it is almost certainly the most sentimental. I mean, look at how far they’ve come!
