Usually we let our videos speak for themselves, but seeing a lot of comments so I want to clear one thing up if you'll spare a moment to read. Our texting while driving habits were exaggerated for the sake of this video to demonstrate examples of real behaviors out there. I see people texting and driving every. single. day. and we wanted to make a video about the dangers. Using your phone while driving seems to be becoming apart of everyday life, and that is terrifying. We often lean into elements of our character/personality as a way to represent different types of people. In doing so, we also leaned into the edit to make our real life habits look as dangerous as possible to underscore our message. In hindsight, we now see how poorly we come off, especially me (Zach), and for that we apologize. It's a tricky line to make these videos both fun and serious, and at times we come off as callous and reckless during this one. My comment about using my phone the next day was not said to be apathetic, but rather to show that cell phone use is an ingrained and habitual behavior for so many people. I got to a red light, took out my phone, and thought "what the hell am I thinking?" I saw in that moment how using my phone isn't even a conscious activity sometimes, and I imagine for many people it's the same. You can know something is bad and still do it, and that scares me the most. It's not just my life on the line out there, and as someone who was in a nearly fatal car accident as a child I know this as well as anyone. I’ve been guilty of using my phone in my car. I imagine some of you have been too. You tell yourself you can do it safely, but you just can’t. That’s why we made this series - to show people that. I was in charge of this edit and was willing to make myself look bad to prove that point. It seems I should say on the record that the video portrays me as a far more egregious phone user than I really am. I regret how far the video pushes it and am sorry if I disappointed you. I promise our intentions were pure. So, ultimately I’m glad some of you are mad. I hope what you watched disgusts you and that you and your friends never do it. But for those upset that I haven’t learned my lesson, please know that is not the case. Thanks for watching this series and apologies for bogging this final episode down with a long-winded message. I hope you can still enjoy and learn from it. 💚 Zach (and the rest of the guys)

Although a lot you found their attitude through out theseries quite inappropriate, I must say that they did a great job representing the actual attitude of texting/drunk/high drivers. The video is doing its job raising awareness because the try guys are acting in a certain way. So take it easy guys. Its a video that's supposed to be "irresponsibly educational."

OKAY EVERYONE LISTEN UP!! yes, Zach, Ned and Keith were irresponsible, but youre forgetting that the point of this series is to SPARK CHANGE. Doing this series, all four of them were completely honest, and were bringing attention to issues that people dont realise are as much of an issue as they are. We cant "lose respect" for someone for something they are trying to change!! I know you might feel a way, but ill tell you this. The reason that this series was so good was because it WASNT ATTACKING ANYONE! it was showing people the honest effects of drinking, smoking, being sleep deprived and texting while driving. in acknowledging that the guys do these things but dont know how much it effects them, they have TOTALLY convinced me NEVER to do any of them. habits are hard to change, but im sure this series has shown Zach that he has to try hard to BREAK this habit, which i hope he does. TELLING PEOPLE THAT YOU HAVE "LOST RESPECT" FOR THEM WILL NOT CHANGE ANYTHING, IT WILL MAKE THEM feel like SHIT. i truly encourage them to change, but they wouldnt have made this series if they didnt realise they had to.

It’s so easy for people to judge others when it’s not themselves. Ned, Keith, and Zach were honest and placed themselves as examples of what NOT to do. Sure, you now see them in a different light, but know that they’re not perfect. They never were from the start, and I like the fact that they’re open, and brave enough to admit their flaws and mistakes (taking steps to improve themselves) on the internet where everyone has a tendency to immediately condemn someone who screws up. Fine, you lost respect for them, and that’s your opinion. Honestly, I’ve gained respect for them because they’re one of the few youtubers who used their popularity and “youtube status” to expose light on critical issues in our society (which many of you probably can’t do). There ARE people who text and drive, and the Try Guys have consistently made it clear that it’s not okay while providing evidence. A lot of you have said their attitudes were too nonchalant, but have you forgotten that majority of their content is based on humorous behavior. They’re maintaining the channel’s light-hearted persona while spreading awareness on important topics. It might not be your cup of tea, but again, that’s your opinion and their decision. Also one last thing, for all the people commenting about about Ned’s newborn child and how could he do this as a new father... you guys really have no shame, do you? There’s literally no reason to bring someone’s kid into this while acting like you’re parenting experts and shit... It’s just disrespectful... You guys have the audacity to question the morality of others, but have no intent to take a step back and question your own. Normally, I never comment on videos because there’s just too much drama, but I couldn’t restrain myself this time. I know there’s gonna be backlash, but oh well. Also Try Guys, if you happen to read this comment, I wanna let you know that I really appreciate your hard work and top-notch content! You guys are awesome!

New driver here—- these videos have curbed my bad habits before they even started. Honestly, should be required viewing in driver’s ed. Big props to you guys, this was an extremely important series. The roads are marginally safer now thanks to the try guys.

For all the people who think the comments are too salty you should be glad they're like that, because that means that most people understand how horribly dangerous is Texting and driving. That's the point of the video, to show how bad it is, to the point that make people uncomfortable and mad to watch. If only we could get that type of response with all the types of DUI driving would be safer.

This was such a good series! I think it will resonate with people a lot more than traditional PSA videos, and I think a big part of that is how honest the try guys were here. A lot of people have very casual attitudes about distracted driving and driving under the influence, and I think a lot of people roll their eyes at the sort of dramatized PSA videos they show in a typical drivers Ed class or commercial because it's like "I've done those things and I was just fine." It's great that this videos showed that it's easy to overestimate how good of a driver you are. I think it's important that Zach says at the beginning that he honestly thinks this will be the easiest challenge, and then he messes up, because that's the attitude that most drivers seem to have.

Guys, let's not lose our collective minds. I think that texting and driving is the dumbest of all the things (how can you drive without looking at the road how) but they are doing the exact same thing they did in other videos ie showing how it's such a normalized thing that you don't really think it's an issue. Because the point of this series is making people who do this things SEE THEMSELVES AND CHANGE THEIR MINDS. Like When Eugene saw how he actually drives while drunk and was horrified. (Also Idk Zach, but how they drive in this video is not proof of how they drive in their personal life, since in this video they had to answer to everything every goddam second, while Ned mentions looking at his phone at red lights). Hell, Keith uses voice text which was made for people to use their phone while driving, that's how normalized this is (and I'm glad that they showed that it's still a terrible idea). That said, it's nice to know that I am not the only one who tosses their phone in their bags and listens to CDs burnt ten years ago, I'm so old.

The scariest thing about driving is that it doesn't matter how careful you are, if someone else isn't as careful as you, you might die... I don't trust other people who are behind the wheel.. because you can never know what they are doing while driving... I've almost been hit several times because they don't look around them when for example turning or driving out of a drive way.. Cars are convenient, but they can turn in to killing machines in a blink of an eye..

Seing so many angry comments in the comments section makes me realize how many people have been involved in texting while driving accidents. Yes. I believe this is far most the most dangerous out of all the four circumstances but please do not let your anger out to the Try Guys. Yes, they are guilty but they admitted this in the video and said that they are making ways on how to stop this habit of theirs. Also, they made the video to educate people and by doing this I believe they also have educated themselves about the dangerous risks of their habits. Cmon guys let us not spread hate. And boys stop texting and driving we dont wanna lose you because of a single text. ❤️❤️❤️

I put my phone on driving mode (search for it in settings) so if someone calls or texts me it sends a message saying that I’m driving. Everyone should use it.❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️ Like why is nobody talking about driving mode.

Wait, is using your phone while driving not illegal in the US? Super illegal in the UK. If you're caught you get a fine and points on your license. Eugene is the only one who didn't make me incredibly anxious when talking about texting and driving. Being on your phone is like driving with your eyes closed! How is it not a no-brainer that your phone should be away when you're driving?

Wow it’s illegal to touch our phone while driving in Australia and while we are on our provisional license we aren’t allowed any Bluetooth connectivity so it’s really interesting to watch this as I now kind of understand why these laws are a thing

The thing is, the text or notification will still be there by the time you’re done driving. I don’t see why there’s a need to respond IMMEDIATELY. Missed call? Call back later. If that person needs you so badly and you’re unreachable, they’ll call later or find someone else to help them. If it’s really so urgent, pullover.

Let’s make this clear. It’s a safe course. They’re doing it to raise awareness. They are acting. They know it’s wrong, THAT’S WHY THEY MADE THIS SERIES. I am not defending their bad habits. You shouldn’t either. But there’s no need to bully them. They are trying to do the right thing. A lot of people have missed the KEY message of this video. PS: no one likes a hypocrite

Anyone that studies psychology will tell you number 1 myth: Multitasking is a lie. There's no way for your brain to do two things at one time. You can stop doing something and focus on something else, but that doesn't mean you're doing both at the same time.

I don’t like how the comments are attacking Zach, I mean his comments and his nonchalant demeanor towards texting and driving rubbed me the wrong way, but every try guy is guilty of at least doing one or more than these lack of sobriety drives in real life. I’m not condoning Zach, but why people in particular are attacking Zach in this episode is almost hypocritical. Eugene drives drunk on occasion, Keith has driven high, and Ned texts just as well. Here’s the thing: w e d o n t k n o w t h e m. You can’t judge them based off of a 13 minute video where they’re obviously playing it up for comedy. They’re adults they understand the consequences and I doubt all the saints in the comments are pure as well. Just take what you see with a grain of salt and put down the pitchforks.

To anyone who reads this: STOP YELLING AT THEM FOR THIS VIDEO: At least they didn’t lie to us about their truth. Just because they text and drive doesn’t mean their a terrible person. They’ve made this as an experiment. As a way to test their actions. People text and drive everyday. Many people find it to become a habit. It’s hard to break out of a habit, especially when you’re in a car alone with no one to guide you. Yes, they’re nonchalant about it. But at least they tell us the truth. That means they trust us. They want us to know about their life. If they lied, your respect would have gone much further down. But I have respect for the guys because they were so open to it. Sorry for ranting, I know this is an unpopular opinion, I’ll leave now.

*Many people are acknowledging and appreciating their honesty about their habits, but plenty more are getting way too angered about this. Obviously, all of these things are horrible. They’re doing this to raise awareness. Not only did they understand that it was terrible by the end of the video, but they also made valid statements about the dangers of this. Another thing is that this is a YouTube video. It’s made for entertainment. Being dramatic about this would make it less entertaining and would lead to less money for their independent company.* *What you see in this video is not everything. There is plenty that’s not shown on camera, so stop putting them down and getting so fired up about the small fraction of them you see while being filmed.*

I think that maybe people are misunderstanding the point behind this video, it wasn't to glorify what was happening it was to raise awareness towards the issue. Their target audience is young people, so by doing this they've shown the dangers. Young people have a invincibility mindset, "That won't happen to me", it will! I'm a little disappointed in the fact that 3/4 of them text and drive, but you can see it was an eye opening experience. I hope Zach can drop this habit because he causes a real risk on roads if it continues, as well as the other boys. But in saying all of this, the judgement in this comment section is overwhelming, they were very real and honest with us about their DUI behaviour and choices, they could have easily lied and said they've never driven drunk, high or whilst texting. This was executed very well and showed a change in their opinions based on experience. Youth listen to people they watch and look up to, so the people who watch and enjoy The Try Guys content are more prone to listening and changing behaviour from evidence and opinion from them. It was an excellent series to watch and I hope that the experiment changed some of the boys opinions on their driving behaviour and pushed them to make more of an effort to safely drive.

How about we look at the video as it was meant to be seen? A warning about how dangerous any impaired driving is. That message came across clearly to me, don't see why all these rude people are on here like "I've lost respect for you guys". Why? Because they act like 99% of every single driver out there? They're only human and they have certainly realized how dangerous it is after these tests. It takes a real special person to watch this and be pissed off at THEM. Heaven forbid they try to keep people educated and alive.

I know some people are disappointed and upset about this video but honestly they shouldn't be , maybe some of you don't text while driving , maybe some of you do , but you have to remember that their not the only ones who do this daily so they don't deserve the "I'm really disappointed in them" or anything bad , I know it's dangerous to do that but you have to remember that they are just portraying what other people do , so if your disappointed or upset because they did this well then your doing the wrong thing , maybe someone you know does this , maybe you even do it for God's sake ! But you have to understand that they we're just portraying what other people do , and they don't deserve being hated because they make these videos for our safety and entertainment. So don't hate on them 💓

Im like Eugene in this episode, i NEVER touched my phone when i drove, if i had a passenger with me and my mom called i would have them answer it, if i was alone i never touched it.. i usually listened to music when i drove because i never stopped paying attention to the road, gives some entertainment without the risk of an accident. In the 3 years i drove independently i never got a speeding ticket because i never went past 10 mph when passing a car, and I only had one tiny collision when my side mirror hit the side of a tall guard rail because it was raining on a rural road and the shocks were out on that side due to my dad hitting a curb in the car prior to that, causing me to hydroplane into it but because i wasn’t messing around i barely nicked it. I only can’t drive due to being paralyzed on 3/4ths of my body and due to having epilepsy. I could get it back if i had a modified car because my reaction time isn’t impaired, and as long as its modified right to my needs i could drive again. Thank you for showing the dangers of driving under any influence, most people only do it because they are over confident which can cause somebody’s life or their quality of life. I have enough health issues without all of that thank you very much.

I really hope this video gets more people to stop texting and driving. It stresses me tf out and I hate that people think they’re an exception. You can’t pay attention to the road while you’re doing things that affect your mood and state. This applies to all of the ones they tested but mostly the texting and driving one, really people should know better especially when they’re sober.

One of the things that stuck with me from driver's ed was the whole issue of believing too much in the modern car. "It beeps when Im about crash", theorhetically helps you - but I was told that *if* the car beeps, you've already fucked something up and in any other car you could have died.

As a British person I am so surprised at how normal it seems in the US to text/be on your phone while driving. Don't get me wrong, people in the UK do it sometimes but it is hugely frowned upon and you would only be on your phone to change a song playing or something in a real emergency or if you're sat at a traffic light. People certainly don't hold their phones in their hands whilst driving, even if using google maps, it will always be placed on the side or in a phone holder. I was always so shocked when I have seen American YouTuber's holding their phones/snapchatting/texting whilst driving but I guess it's just a cultural thing?

I believed this video for your Driving Under the Influence series was the most terrifying and stressful to watch. I see so many people on their phones here in Australia and it worries me whenever I’m on the road with them. Hopefully this entire series will reduce the amount of people that drive under the influence, whether it be texting, stoned, sleepy or drunk.

Hey guys. I see a lot of comments feeling disappointed in the Try Guys, but that's the POINT. It's appealing to your emotions. So you don't DO this. This is why they do it. So you can feel horror and upset, and so you have this in the back of your mind. It's dangerous. The Try Guys learned. We learned. Point blank. That's all.

The comments about how "appalled" a lot of you are about The Try Guys admitting to engaging in some of these behaviors is surprising. If you look at the statistics, most people do one or more of these things while driving. I can't even count how many people I have seen on their phones while driving. And who knows how many people had been drinking or smoking weed in the cars next to me on my drive home this Saturday night. I highly doubt that these people commenting about how they've "lost respect" for The Try Guys haven't engaged in any form of distracted/under the influence driving. They were being honest and representative of the general population. If this weren't such a widespread problem, people wouldn't be getting into so many accidents every day. They are trying to shed light on how serious these behaviors are and how dangerous it is.

This whole series I was kind of uncomfortable with how flippant you all were with every single behaviour you supposedly were not endorsing but I stuck with it, but you lost me at practically bragging about how good you are texting and driving. you can say you exaggerated for the video all you want but we literally all just watched 3/4 of you (including the one with a fucking baby to look after) using your phones in real traffic, putting your own and other peoples lives in danger and laughing about it. fuck right off with that bullshit.

The fact that Keith still thinks he passed the course while high is concerning, he was driving badly, just not as bad as the other guys.

Can we please talk for a moment about the very important fact that using our phones for social media etc causes a dopamine rush and therefore triggers a reward mechanism we become addicted to?? SO glad this video mentioned this! Honestly, how long could YOU be without your phone...?

Zach buddy stop texting/reading behind the wheel. Take after daddy Eugene and put your phone out of sight out of mind. Where Im from if you get caught texting while driving first offense is 250 dollar fine.

A couple of years ago in the cinema an advert came on before the movie. In it a sober woman was driving her very drunk husband home while texting. They acted very shocked “oh my god why are you driving in that state, you shouldn’t be driving like that, it’s not safe” and they switched drivers so now the drunk man was driving. Then it said twice as many people get into accidents due to texting as being intoxicated. It always stuck with me for some reason. You think of drunk driving as being such a bad thing and then to realise the one that people actually do more often is also more dangerous.

I've known numerous people who have gotten into accidents and have life long injures, or have died, because someone else hit them and was texting while driving. And you know what? The person who was texting and hit them come out fine or maybe have a few scratches. It isn't just about YOUR safety but other's too!!! I am so upset at how nonchalant they are about this. I hope it changes because I lost a lot of respect.

yeah so i'm 16 and i was in driver's ed last winter, and yes this was exaggerated, but i actually started getting irritated watching this? like, i'm terrified that if i'm not completely focused on the road and my surroundings all the time something could go super wrong. and like, my dad is always texting while riving, i've had to tell him when there's a green light or to remind him to stop looking at his phone, and it bugs me all the damn time but this is actually good because now i really want to remind him of that, of the dangers and how bad it is, even if it's more convenient for me when he's more accessible while driving, so good job guys, also i really hope that you guys never do any of these 4 bad habits again because my god i got anxiety about driving just watching you.

Guys, technically multitasking is actually an illusion. What our brain is doing is called multiswitching. Well psychologicaly speaking is multiswitching.

What shocks me is that the cones and accidents were so much higher texting than the sleepy, drunk or high. Like twice as bad. Yet people really think texting is ok compared to drunk driving.

tbh recently in MTL they put up a new law where the driver can't have any food or their phone around them while driving or they could get a very expensive fine, and at first i thought it was ridiculous and they were exaggerating. now seeing this video and seeing how flippant the guys were about texting and driving and thinking of how many lives were lost to this particular thing, i understand the new law now

This was an interesting and, to me, helpful series. Personally, I don’t text and drive. Partially because of all the dangers present, and partially because it is now illegal to have your phone while in a moving vehicle where I live, and I see people, every day, ignoring that. Stuff like this, where the actual effects of said dangers are shown to you, in a way that you can’t deny the results, are so helpful because having this information could save so many lives, more so than just ‘don’t drink and drive’ or ‘don’t text and drive’. You can see the effects this had on the try guys alone; think of what showing this to new drivers, young and old, that doing this does have consequences, and those consequences are not always at the hand of the legal system.
