    Welcome to the Gus Johnson channel, where the most average content comes to fizzle out.

    Thanks for watching and sharing! Don't stab people. I'll see you later.

      Chris Kendall (crabstickz on YouTube) made a similar parody like five years ago called Britain's Got Talent. So we could also say you were inspired or copied him, but at the same time I do believe you guys have similar senses of humour and both came up with the idea alone

            I get the distinct impression that Gus spent his entire childhood just hitting baseballs at that giant field.

                Nah they wish they woulda used ur joke.

                Theirs was not ur joke. Urs was better

                • Aðalúlfr Geirsson Játvarðingr

                  This is basically an old Stanhope joke.

                    The SNL tries way to hard to explain the joke. Like with the Howie Mendel "oh wait he has". It could be the person saying it but it seems so stretched out when Gus made it short and cut perfectly, straight to the point and self explanatory.

                      SNL hiring Gus is the only way to save their sinking ship.

                                aside from whether or not they actually did steal this joke, my opinion on plagiarism in general is not only is it wrong for the obvious insidiousness of it but what people don't talk about as much is that it just makes people not want to do it ; whatever it is.

                                  SNL is so unfunny that they have to steal jokes from small youtubers

                                      Every single one of those ideas would’ve worked 10 years ago when they still had a good cast.
                                      Maybe if they had a good writer, the CURRENT cast would seem equally good.
                                      Come on @SNL ! Hire Gus! At this point, what do u have to lose?

                                            Longer Island medium and Baby resturaunt are gold. Survivor food guy might work if you used a depressing refugee person from Syria, prolly not so funny fella.

                                              SNL writers are known for stealing jokes. It’s one of those well known “secrets”. A lot of past writers have talked about it because the deadlines are rough.
