    What if Vinny isn’t real and the entire bonappetit staff are actors helping Brad deal with his schizophrenia in an advanced mental institution????

    Lost it completely at “Why do you use a basket?”.

  6. Bleep Bloop says:

    I like how Matt is throwing shade at the mushroom foragers.

    This time he’s deep in the woods, looking for Claire, who was lost when her plane made an emergency landing in the Pacific Northwest Wilderness.

    7:55 – 8:15 “Why do you use a basket?”

    Small addendum to the whole about being careful with mushrooms, and making sure you have someone with you who knows what they’re doing: Please be aware that sometimes even professional mushroom foragers can be wrong, so please be very careful when foraging for mushrooms, if you’re even slightly in doubt about a mushroom, either throw it out, or eat it while someone else is with you who doesn’t eat it. Mushrooms can be lethal.

    • Ruby Wants Friends says:

      Anything can be lethal. I could die today. Anyone could die today. STAY SAFE. 😉

    • op4000exe says:

      True, but there’s a difference betweeen eating an unknown mushroom, and taking a breath of air, one’s significantly more dangerous than the other.

    • Ruby Wants Friends says:

      op4000exe Yup, but air isn’t the only thing we have to worry about. All the dangers of the world are more dangerous than a mushroom. Just be careful, everyone.

  14. Sarah Gausman says:

    3..2..1… “Natural Selection” I am DYING Vinny. Give this man his own show hahahahahaha

  15. Brad Leone says:

    in case you missed it the basket helps spread mushroom spores as you walk.. its great. Also it turns out im terrible with nursery rhymes but you get the point.

  16. Aaron Gilliland says:

    I like to think that nobody asked those mushroom guys to show up, they just sidled up to Brad and Vin and were like “Hey, did you know that the layer between the soil and the living plants is called duff?”

    Afterwards, when the shoot was over, Brad turned to thank them for their help, but they were already gone.

    All they left behind were memories. Memories and their beards.

    Expose your mushroom and spread your seed mighty mycelium.

  18. Natalie Valentina says:

    Brad’s standing in the woods, with a basket, red windbreaker, & talking about wolves…but can’t remember the name of “little red riding-hood”…😂😂😂

    Vinny has an instagram account, I kinda feel bad looking at it. I liked the mystery of not knowing what he looked like
