    Josh: do you wanna know what else has it’s way?
    Me: *breathing intensifies*

  2. RedBanditReddit says:

    Josh should start a restaurant chain where he sells everyone of his “but better” items and makes it like an HD fastfood place

  3. Heck in a Hand Basket says:

    Josh has discovered every single special effect in his editing program at once and it’s scaring me

    Edit: everyone complaining about it are weak and cowardly, I say keep it up!

  4. TehFrenzyYT says:

    I just realized Joshua is the mom all of us wish we had when they said “we got food at home!”

  5. Guardianz iOS says:

    Imagine u give him his own nuggets without him knowing and he starts dissing it and tries making a better version

  6. JFRED254 says:

    I guess nobody had the heart to tell him that “Have It Your Way” is Burger Kings slogan lol

  7. XandeeXD says:

    When are we going to tell him it’s called fast food for a reason?

  8. Frittski says:

    Isn’t “have it your way” burger king’s motto? I thought it was funny that josh kept saying it given we were doing McDonald’s.

  9. Desi Barfield says:

    so who’s gonna tell josh that “have it your way” isn’t mcdonald’s slogan? … it’s burger kings😂

  10. snapees says:

    A sign this is a “during quarantine” when drive-thru window has half of it sealed of with plexi-glass.

  11. Andre_Pi^ says:

    McDonald’s nuggets, to me at least, are these mystical things that will always taste better than higher quality chicken nuggets.

    I’ve been successfully indoctrinated by corporate America and it makes me sad… But 20 mcnuggets amd some sweet n sour sauce is heaven

  12. Spencer Brown says:

    Here’s one you won’t make better: Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits

  13. Alex Gochenour says:

    I have an eaten McDonald’s since early childhood, but I assume that any “sauce“ they have to offer would just be a nuclear warhead of sugar and preservatives.

  14. Brayden Shannon says:

    I don’t think Josh understands everyone gets the nuggets because it takes 5 min and costs a couple dollars 😂. If it was easy to make Josh’s nuggets of course everyone would

  15. Ayyy Uhhh says:

    When you ate the cold Mcnuggies and said “It taste good but I still hate it” I felt that so much 😫 lmaoooooo 😂

  16. Kayan Y. says:

    Josh, this series should be called: “Flexing on big companies”

  17. Gabrielle Fullhart says:

    Fun fact that I’ve learned as a McDonald’s employee: there is actually celery in the nuggets

  18. Ahnaf Rashid says:

    Popular fast food: Exists
    Josh: *Let me stop you right there*

  19. dragonswamp animations says:

    ” the king of nuggets” sounds like his friend has never had any other chicken nugget in his life

  20. Wild111 says:

    Joshua: “I can’t believe I’m doing this, this is a breach of my own morals”.
    Also Joshua: increasingly slaps and makes shots of his butt
