It’s really to find the
best fast food hash-browns.
– The patties.
– Potatoes are an amazing thing.
– Potatoes are almost
as versatile as pigs.
– [Both] Rubric
Crispiness.
– Fluffiness.
– We brought a scale,
so we could weigh ’em.
Overall beauty.
– [Both] “Wow” factor.
Damn that’s a fine potato.
– Yea, that’s like, that’s a sexy nod.
– Yea, a sexy nod.
Oh, here’s a thing.
When you break open a hash-brown,
it should steam like in the commercials.
You know?
Like you should break it in
half and steam should erupt.
– Steam test.
– Steam test.
Hang a right here, then
take a left down Vine,
We’ll be in Santa Monica in no time.
We’re here.
The Dunkin’ Donuts.
I’m lookin’ for some hashbrowns.
– I’m gonna get one order of hash-browns
and two coffees.
– Let’s get a top-down
and see how beautif–
– So here’s the Dunkin Donuts.
– Are these beautiful?
39 grams, that’s incredible!
– Steam test.
– Steam test.
– Ready?
– Ready?
– Close-up, yea.
– Is this gonna do it?
Ready? And…
I am gonna say a soft
no on the steam test.
– It’s like a salty tongue bath.
– I can’t give it too much
crispy or fluffy points,
because they kind of blend together.
– They def–
There’s no contrast.
– There’s no contrast.
– No contrast.
– No “Wow” factor.
– No “wow” factor
– Absolutely.
It has somethin’ special about it.
The thing is they’re very eatable.
I could just…
He said get one order.
We maybe shoulda’ got two.
– Well we have to eat a lot more potatoes,
I didn’t want us to spoil
our goose this early.
– Yea.
– Hit us with a Tater Fact, Linda.
– [Linda] The potato is
about 80 percent water
and 20 percent solids.
– 80 percent water?!
– That seems weird.
– Carl’s Jr.
– Watch out for that runner.
This is what we’re gonna get.
– Ooo.
– Well, we lost two.
Lost two.
115 grams.
– Steam test, steam test!
– Do you see any?
– I didn’t see any but it felt better
than the last time.
A little less artisan.
Not that much fluff though.
– No, it’s just really a nice crunch.
This is classic potato
that’s been fried in a shape.
– Definitely no “wow” factor.
Ready?
– Yea.
– Oh! That was close though!
– Waste another one.
– Oh! That’s my boy.
– Same edibility.
– Yea.
– And also we threw
about ten on the ground.
– [Both] Hashtag Hashbrown Huntdown 2K15.
– I thought we were gonna
throw them in our mouths.
– (chuckles) Oh.
Oh, do you wanna do that?
(laughs)
– Alright, we wasted a couple hashbrowns,
but in the end it’s really gonna be ok,
because, I mean, the
seagulls will eat ’em.
– Everybody likes seagulls
at their restaurant.
I gotta be honest,
I’m already feeling a little bit sick.
♫ Oh Burger King, where
dreams can be yours. ♫
– May I get an order of hashbrowns?
She was nice.
All of the fast-food workers
have been nice today.
– Yea, it’s morning.
They haven’t had their day ruined yet.
– I think these look way shittier
than the Carl’s Jr. ones.
– Really?
They look exactly the same.
– 118 grams
– 118.
No.
– (laughs)
Do you think this is ever gonna work?
They are fluffy and they are crispy.
I might even give it
a slight “wow” factor.
Yea, I think they’re ugly.
– Catch-ability.
– [Keith] Tastebuds. Flavor buds.
– Flavor buds.
– [Both] Hashtag Hashbrown Huntdown 2K15.
– Goddammit.
– This is not as easy as chicken watch.
– You got coffee on your pants.
– I got coffee on my pants.
♫ Taste buds
♫ We’re buds in nice duds
♫ And we’re eating the spuds ♫
– [Linda] Potato blossoms
used to be a big hit
in royal fashion.
Potatoes first became fashionable
when Marie Antoinette paraded
through the French countryside
wearing potato blossoms in her hair.
– [Keith] Whoa, where are we Chris?
– I’m at the combination
Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.
– That’s where I am too.
And Linda.
– [Keith] Okay.
– [Chris] Okay.
It looks average.
39 grams.
– [Both] Steam! Steam!
– It’s not crispy and it’s not fluffy.
– It’s like gooey.
Wooo big truck!
– Yeah I don’t like this.
– No wow factor.
– The wow factor is like,
“Wow, really?”
– Uggh.
– It’s probably the ugliest one.
– Taco Bell, I love you but
you’re new at this breakfast thing
and it’s showing.
– Catchable.
– [Both] Hashtag Hashbrown Huntdown 2K15.
– Flavor buds.
– Flavor buds.
Should be taste buds, but…
Thank you.
– Can’t stop it.
– Thank you!
– How mad do you get
when somebody doesn’t give you the wave?
– [Both] You gotta give ’em a wave
if they let you in.
♫ You gotta give ’em a wave
♫ Give ’em a wave
♫ Give ’em a wave now ♫
– Thank you.
Just wave at me!
Hey do you guys have hashbrowns?
– No.
– You don’t have hashbrowns?
– Alright.
– Yeah how’s it going?
– Good how you doin’?
– Keith, nice to meet you.
– Nice to meet you too.
– Hey, Chris.
– Are you guys still doing the chicken…?

(laughs)
♫ Havin’ fun, havin’ fun.
♫ Havin’ fun at the Jack-in-the-Box. ♫
Oooh.
It’s pretty fat brown.
– 50 grams.
– Ooh, what a steam test.
– Ooh it smells really hot.
– I like the fact that the
outsides are nice and crunchy
and then when you feel
the potato in your mouth,
it feels nice and soft, smooth.
– He’s better at this than us.
– Yeah.
What do you think? Wow factor?
– Yeah I enjoyed it.
– Damn.
– That’s a fine potato.
– Wow.
The first one came out really nice.
The other two kind of
failed on that department.
– So there was a clear,
better-looking system.
– Yes.
– Everything’s fine.
– [All] Hashtag Hashbrown Huntdown 2K15.
– What a treat.
– Yeah that was really great.
– Bye.
– Bye.
– The average American
eats about 124 pounds of potatoes per year
while Germans eat about twice as much.
– Remember that that’s 80% water
so you’re really just staying hydrated.
We’re finally going to McDonald’s.
– So we made it to our final
destination, McDonald’s,
and you know what’s right next door.
– We have 20 minutes.
– Let’s go get some recruits.

– Let’s go!
This is important it’s for a video.
– Come! Hashbrowns!
We’re all getting hashbrowns.
Every one of us.
– 50. Let’s get an even 50.
Hi, can I get 50 hashbrowns?
– Me and Keith tweeted
that we wanna get hashbrowns with people.
Caya was like, “I’ll be there.”
Yeah!

– [Chris] We live in a fast town,
cruising around, eating hashbrowns.
Going to Chik-Fil-A or
McDonald’s, Burger King.
What you say?
Jack-in-the-Box, you goin’ Subway?
I don’t think they have those, not today.
Not tomorrow, not the week later.
No, they don’t serve taters.
– Oooooh shit!
