(Text: Good morning John. When I was in L.A. I asked a bunch of people to do something for me because I could. Here's the result)

Hank: I would like everybody to, to, to try and laugh without smiling.

Grace: I just pictured Hannah doing this.

(Attempts: Hannah Hart)

Man: You're totally smiling!

Hannah: I am not!

Hannah: No!

(Attempts: Trisha Hershberger

(Attempts: Arielle Scarella

Hank: I like how dead your eyes are.

Flula: I want all girlfriends to tell me that after dates.

(Attempts: Mike Falzone)

Mike: I didn't think I would hate it as much as I do, but I hate it so much. I feel like I'm killing my heart.

Matt: What weird experiment are you putting me through right now?

Kati: Seems weird like a creeper.

Steve: You feel like you're going insane, right.

Hank: You're smiling a lot.

(Attempts: William Haynes)

(People laughing: Jake Roper

Hank: The whole laughing without smiling thing, it's been done before. It's something that they do in the VidCon office all the time to relieve stress, to make each other laugh, to make themselves laugh. I think it's what I like about it is a lot of the time you start out fake laughing and then it makes you real laugh, and real laughing is nice. And the VidCon team right now is in Anaheim doing all the checkups and visits and meetings and stuff that we need to do getting ready for VidCon which is happening earlier this year. It's June 24th, you'd think I'd know. June 23rd to 25th, so I was right, kind of. If you like online video VidCon is a thing that we do, I hope you can come.

So glad I got to see all those people while I was in L.A. They're all great, there's lots of them, and I put links to all of their channels in the description. And there was one person that you didn't see in the video laughing without smiling, so let's do that while I link to all the other collab videos that I was in while I was in L.A., the one's that have come out so far at least. Here we go.

(Attempts: Hank Green)

Hank: John, I'll see you on Tuesday.
