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)

I’m infuriated when people I know text while driving while I’m in the car. I’ll snatch that shit up and lock it in the glove compartment there are people around you. Smfh. No text in the world is more important than your life and the life of others.

I’m curious if the car crash was the one behind me, it was on September 27, I believe it was on I-5 or 170 south can’t remember which one exactly. Lol

I remember when I was in highschool, I slept over at my friends house and her dad took us to the mall. I sat in the front seat and on our way there, her dad pulled out his phone, took both hands off of the wheel, steering with his knee, and started texting.

My heart dropped and I jumped back in my seat, I looked at the road to see any possible reasons of crashing, only one thing came to mind; WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!

When he noticed my reaction, he asked me if I was okay.
"Can you please not text while driving? Its scaring me." I told him.
"Don't worry, I wouldn't do this if I was bad at it. You're safe, sweetheart." is what he told me.

NO THE HELL I AM NOT! There I was, a teenager at the mercy of my friends dad and I am getting ready to die, I was praying to any God that was listening to not have us die. Nothing happened, we got to the mall and back home safe (even though I was probably going to die of a heart attack)

NEVER text and drive

Just because we made it out alive, does not mean it is safe. We humans can die anywhere at anytime. Don't be too cocky about how skilled you are at driving while under ANY influence.

Ok but to be fair there’s a huge difference between using your phone on curvy backroads and while on your commute to work where you’re on a straight away in traffic for 18miles. Not saying you should do that either but c’mon if you were texting and moving while on a road like the course they’re on then you’re a moron.

My dad died from someone texting and driving so I was second guessing if I should watch it

If you think that you can text and drive safely, just remember that every person that has been killed while texting and driving thought the same thing

Me: Haha yeah right, said the guy with a M&M tie.

News: A terrible car crash has happened. We discovered a phone playing a video on the Try Guys driving while texting.

Normal people do not text and drive smh ya’ll are the exception

First off, I love your videos! They are always so entertaining. The only thing that majorly puts me off is the blasphemy, which seems to feature more and more. It's offensive to some people's beliefs and in my opinion insensitive. But more to the point on this series of videos, I love the awareness that you guys have created! I wish there was a fifth part on driving while on strong painkillers with codeine. I think the results would also be surprising and so many people do it. Congrats again on the great content and greetings from sunny South Africa!

It kinda makes me mad that Ned texts and drives. He has a kid and a wife. You'd think if he cared at all about them, he wouldn't be texting and driving. I'm like Eugene. I don't answer my phone, let alone look at it while I'm driving. The only time I use my phone while driving is for navigation. I just go by where the voice tells me to.
