It's a 3d movie. [Arin] Whoooooooaaaaaa


I lived with these wolf hands every day of my life. It's a burden and nobody thinks it's cool. Bye!

[people singing] [Arin] How do you even wear that?

[cameraman] I couldn't do that, I'm afraid of heights.

[Arin] Are you really? Whoa! It's so cool up here!

[cameraman] What are you guys doing down there? [Arin] We're making art we're making films. Look at this!

We're doing something that no man has ever done before - try on costumes in a costume shop on camera.

[Danny] Listen, uh, just, uh, be mine.

[whispering] Just be mine.

[Arin in mask] Are there any boys at this party?

I want a beautiful mallard.


Ooh I can- I'm going quackers for all the - the handsome mallards at the ball

Mmm quack quack.

[Arin] That sucks.

[Arin in mask] Look at me now,

minute that I wasn't gonna make it in this dang world and look at me now, grandma.

I'm here and I'm making the big dollars - in California, Los Angeles.

Who didn't even - who thought I

Who saw it coming? Not me.

Looks like I'm just the boy who cried wolf. Yo, listen up.

I'm a canine, you see? I've been rapping since 1983. My name is Frank and this is Joe

Everybody watch the Joe and Frank show.

[Arin laughing]

[Danny] I'm still grapes, but dat butt doe.

Shorty get low

Shorty's getting low. Oh shi-

[Arin] Did you get my rap?

[Arin in mask] Well boys and girls it has been a fun adventure. I've picked out my halloween costume.

[Danny] Happy Halloween Arin. [Arin] You too, Dan. The grape man.

I always thought you were destined for grape things [Arin laughing]

[Danny] I thought you were gonna say grape-ness. I love it and you can send me the bill for these costumes.

[Arin] OW!

Asshole. And thanks again to the costume shop in Glendale, California

[Danny] Come here and rent the grapes costume knowing that it's been on my moist body. [Arin] And come here and rent the duck

uh, helmet, which won't be here anymore, mysteriously, for some unknown reason.

[Danny] Probably because that burp you let fly in there - it's fucking disintegrating it from the outside -

[Arin] That's just what it smells like. [Danny] It smells disgusting.


[Arin grunting] [Danny laughing]

[Danny] Your hair is so much wetter every time you take something off. [Arin] I'm a moist boy.

[All] Alright have a great night, thank you so much! [employee] Yeah!

*weird noises*

[Arin] What do you want, what do you want from me? [cameraman] The show doesn't end. The show never ends.

[cameraman] We're still rolling. [Ross] It's the Truman Show. You're always on camera.

[Arin] No. Noo-
