D=Switch to Danny
A=Switch to Arin Danny: I dunno when they stopped doing these, but do you remember the “It’s 10PM. Do you know where your children are” things? Arin: Uhh… I remember that slogan, but I don’t– D: Yeah, just — every night at 10, on the dot, like… channels used to run that ad. Like, [deep voice] “It’s 10pm. Do you know where your children are?”( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) And, like… I’d – I’d ALWAYS – I mean I was like a fuckin’ nerdy kid that didn’t go out, and… A: Mmm-hmm…
D: So, like, uh… I’d be sitting right next to my parents, And my dad would look at me like “I’ve got a good kid!” (good for you) And I’d be thinking to myself, like “I’m a FUCKIN’ LOSER!”(same) [giggling] “Goddammit.” [more laughing] A: “He’s a good kid, that one!” D: “He’s alright!” “I like him!” D: …I–
A: “Sometimes…” D: My dad used to– [laughs before finishing sentence] My dad used to go up to my groups of friends and be like, [impression] “You know…” “I don’t like you.” [wheezes] And he’d just say that to my friends – like as a joke, And, uhh – I remember my friend Mark, (markiplier) He used to say, like, [dad impression] “You know, Mark,” “I don’t like you, but of all of Dan’s friends,” “I don’t like you the least.” [giggling] (better then any relationship ive had) A: He SAID that?
D: Yeah! Heh heh heh! A: Oh, that’s awesome! D: That’s – that’s my dad’s version of dad humor. [snickering] A: “I don’t like you the least.” Meanwhile, he’s like permanently scarred for life… 🙁 [defeated] “…what?” D: Yeah, my friends are like, “[hyperventilating] I already don’t have my OWN dad’s love!” “Why do I have to earn YOURS?”
[laughing] Dan and Arin Are AWESOME A: [deep breath] WHOOOOOA! D: [laughs]
A: I’m a giant! D: Yup, yup!
A: Wha – was I this small?( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) D: It’s very strange.
A: …And I was. I was that small.
