  2. Alexander Manroe says:

    So close. It’s pronounced “in·tr·mow·dl” not “inter-model”

  3. Krzyszton Philip says:

    2:45 got me. Exactly what I was doing

  4. M. R. Adam James says:

  5. Pony Empires Unite says:

  6. Bubbles says:

    Wasn’t expecting to see my old workplace on Donut. I feel validated now.

    But can NOS energy drink bring your Dad back?

    • Peanut Gallery says:

      Nope ive tried on multiple occasions. My dad was cremated tho so if you’re dad wasn’t id give it the old college try.

    • Bulruk says:

      @Peanut Gallery Girl learns a hard lesson from a clodhopper related to a bubble. The ghastly espadrille is botched. Most people believe that the haunch defined by the maestro lazily can be kind to the bicep related to a menagé à trois, but they need to remember how slyly the strawberry-blonde tenor strokes. A tenor, a ballerina, and the curse are what got Timosha into trouble.

    • Be_Easy says:

      It won’t bring him back, but if you drink enough “HUMAN HORSEPOWER” you might be able to catch up with him.

    • Kevin Calderon says:

      Who is his dad?

  8. Plot Twist says:

    My great grandpa was the lead diesel mechanic for peterbuilt

  9. Nizar The Challenger says:

    Does the NOS energy drink make me faster for the 100 meter sprint runs????

  10. David Moore says:

    1. Peterbilt
    2. Kenworth
    3. Mack

  11. Chris Archer says:

    Fast and furious was a 359 they have the flip out anchor points in the bumper below the grille, for pulling it out it’s stuck in the mud or something. 379s do not. @jamespumphrey

  12. Edward Wagner says:

    The Peterbilt, used in the Fast and Furious movie is a 1984 Peterbilt 359B with a new paint job.

  13. Alex Blough says:

    How could you make a video about Peterbuilt, reference Paccar, but not talk about Kenworth?

  14. Dakota Stagner says:

    How many of us did James get at 2:42

    He did me

  15. Garry Tenorio says:

    Peterbilt and Kenworth both manufactured by PACCAR, two of the best trucks on Americas roads in my opinion.

  16. ApexPredator_ says:

    Awesome. Please do other truck brands like Kenworth, Freightliner, Volvo also those euro brands like MAN and Scania.

  17. oldsklteg says:

    Trucks were actually my first love. Cars just made more sense as i got older. I even had the original Optimus cabover as a kid. #theoppositeofvtec

  18. Wyatt Thayne says:

    Before I watched this video I couldn’t give half a shit about a semi truck.
    Thanks donut for strangely keeping me intrigued.

  19. Chris Estridge says:

    As a driver 99% of the population dont have a clue what we do on a daily basis. I spend 300+ days a year on the road. Drive 10,000-12,000 miles a month. Last year I put 160,000mi on my truck across all lower 48 states. People rely on us to survive from fuel for cars or groceries from the store. But yet we are treated like 2nd class citizens.

    • TheRedbikemaster says:

      Hey driver. I’m one too. It is underappreciated. I still love the job though.

    • Matthew Smith says:

      @Oso 11 fine then next time we wont slam connor brakes

    • Quusikko says:

      @Oso 11 Cutting off a truck is one of the stupidest things you can do in traffic.

    • Mike Potter says:

      My dad was a trucker so I have respect, but if people would try operating a tractor trailer theyd have more respect, we should show kids how it is in drivers ed class.

    • YungTabasco says:

      Hate to get political on a channel like this but the trucker industry is on it last legs. Truckers really are the blood of this country. We gotta care for these fellas
      This is where politics come in
      Andrew yang has something for truckers and all Americans. Just doing my part don’t hate me
