Billie Eilish. Kevin Hart. Tom Holland. Shaq. Will Ferrell beats ‘em all when it comes to scarfing down spicy wings. No, not in terms of how many he can eat.
Not even in terms of view count for accompanying video footage of his session.
Purely in terms of making us laugh while he’s doing it.
Ferrell recently dropped by First We Feast’s ongoing YouTube series, Hot Ones, again. He came this time for its Second Annual Hot Ones Holiday Extravaganza — and we can’t stop laughing.
Will Ferrell Bites Again
Ferrell appeared on Hot Ones two years ago. With 20 million views, his time on the show lit quite a fire.
In a video posted a week ago, the former Saturday Night Live cast member returned for second helpings of Hot Ones.
The guest spot was good timing, as Ferrell — thanks to Elf and, more recently, Spirited — is commonly associated with the holiday season. He’s only got Mariah Carey in his sights.
Will Ferrell served as the “grand finale” holiday guest on Hot Ones:
“It’s a little bit like childbirth,” Ferrell told Evans. “The first time I did the show … the labor was terrible. I was like, ‘Never going to do it again.’ But then the feedback was so amazing, this beautiful baby of feedback. And I didn’t remember the pain anymore. And now I’m back here to make another baby. With you.”
First We Feast is a food and culture website that spurred a YouTube channel almost a decade ago.
Its Hot One’s series could probably be properly referred to as a streaming TV show at this point. Recent episodes — featuring Kate Hudson, Paul Dano, Ramy Youssef, and Israel Adesanya — all run well over 22 minutes long.
Co-created by host Sean Evans, Hot Ones is — if you haven’t figured it out already — exactly what it sounds like. He interviews his guests — but while their mouths are loaded with hot wings.
