Hot Or Not Episode 3: Adult Acne, House Parties, And Benadryl

I’m back y’all, reporting from pop culture’s garbage to give you the lowdown on what’s hot and what’s not. This week I’ve decided that gay priests (the ones who don’t touch ten year old boys) are totally hot along with the miracle sleeping drug Benadryl, and house parties! So go watch the video and make your Friday a little freakier. Shoutout to my magic castle Gaby Dunn for editing this into something coherent and my Brooklyn baby babes Widowspeak for providing the tunes. TC mark

I'm a brat.

    “That story had an ending and it was fucked up.” – the best thing I have ever heard in person, still dying, can’t handle it.

  • joyce nancy

    These vidz are the best thing ever. Hilarious, informative, and you get to watch super trippy magnified versions of Ryan O’ Connell’s eyes the whole time!

    Did you write this stuff down and then read them to a webcam?

      He writes out topics and then adlibs stuff/takes direction from me into an HD webcam. His improvisations are usually what I keep in.

    This is my first time watching any video on this site. Part of the allure of Ryan O’ Connell’s appeal as a writer was that I didn’t need to hear this voice to hear his voice . . . if you know what I mean? And now that I have . . . I feel like the magic is ruined.

    • a.

      Really? Because I fell in love even more.

    • TRES

      So why did you watch the video?

  • Katie Thompson

    This is dope, and Ryan is great, and I love Hot or Not (and Widowspeak, I’m friends with the band LEMME HOOK YOU UP!) but uh, let’s not continue to confuse people and suggest in any way the homosexuality and pedophilia are the same thing.

    PS I get that this is all supposed to be funny and lighthearted, just saying….
