History of Mamahuhu (How We Started This Channel)


So we used to work on a show together
called monkey kings, like a prank show filmed around Shanghai. Pranks aren’t
really dialogue based. You see something and it’s funny. He was doing it alone which is quite sad. I started off doing it alone. Trying to constantly be recruiting people. it’s not easy doing
a prank show alone. It’s just me and one Chinese filmer who like did not
want to be there filming. This doesn’t work. But I knew Matt was trying to get
into the content game. Do you want to take a foreign taxi? So Matt came on board and yeah
doing the pranks immediately became easier to do and more enjoyable. I think what sucks about it is you’re
doing it at people usually that’s why that’s what looking back at and then I
just couldn’t do it I think the first one we got a lot of positive response
though is when you dressed up as a street cleaner and like that’s not so
much a prank it’s just like a social experiment and the beginning we just
like try to make some prank we do and I told you guys prank video wouldn’t be
popular in China you think you think it’s a scam like when we made pranks
everyone thought we were trying to cheat money it’s not funny IIIi don’t want my
god we did this we did this one prank and we’re all so bored he was doing the
artist and we were all just watching and views down here we’re just watching and
saying I didn’t want to do this anymore and yet from that I think get a
conversation started with the producer and Alessio and they started talking
like as we were filming it about what about if we did a sketch show we write
scripts and I think we got pretty excited because I prank shows on YouTube
were like a dime a dozen but people doing kind of like cross-cultural sketch
comedy on YouTube that’s like you know hadn’t really been done too well before
so I think that’s why was a hit when people read that I was on a path to
young soul and you just asked me absolutely a bawd mama who
oh hi this man is idea ah who is not it’s a very cool war in Chinese music so
that’s awesome yeah and I think it’s very good so we just this map but it’s
literal meaning is horse horse yeah your tiger yeah yeah and that’s that’s why I
knew it because I just thought it was funny if I remember like Reb that they
were getting more views than most of the Franks right yeah yeah so that was that
was again incentives okay this is definitely the correct way to go well I
actually have one friend you all know is laughs the girl and we all did the
architecture stuff she introduced me to this mamahuhu crew yeah I just went
through your team which became stock we were realistic for no money no time
no time I also run the country comedy club you know a lot of the comedian’s
are getting involved in the videos and stuff and obviously we forensic Alessio
and I don’t know at one point I got the call don’t act like you didn’t
understand me my turn perfect and yet just like I got
something of the team after that so pretty exciting people like it I don’t
apologize I’m on YouTube we’re done doing huh weird I’m doing uh playing for
me I felt like it grew really really fast it went from Lakers idea we had to
boom mamahuhu and people talking about it I’m sorry I
usually let’s look more wait first day Alessio got one camera on me and I
didn’t do it very well but at some point I started to you know kind of feel that
I can’t do this hi I still remember my acting you always like I think my favorite
episode of mamahuhu was Western couples versus Chinese couples we’ve been dating
now for 11 years we’ve been living together for eight and we have a dog
together will you marry me because a foreign girl downstairs far in gaps
there sheesh they’re showing questions back and forward she shows up to him you
seriously asking me that right now and he replies with super punch in my head

known as ABC actually I’m from New Zealand NZ b c a b c CB c CB c master is
also from North Koran Allah kugo crap you guys okay Johnny knows it
with the next girl what it’s like being black in China right Ohama
I just thought that was like a funny topic that hadn’t really been touched on
properly when it comes to at least like online video content Oh ice cracks me up
storm when he said all the Russian communities going to whack me off
would you care in total innocence I believe in it definitely know my
favorite one which I feel is very very different
is it Chinese New Year hunama you know mom my favorite part at the end it was
unnatural hey you sure you ha can tell ba it’s funny like that they’re doing
they’re like to think the foreign aside spring to China to affect your Tony
looking back like how many dozen lines look resonated and stay my wife who’s
not Chinese rule says to me holidays good for healthy all the time

fourth or fifth bring road to work today you might as well put your car and park
and start sucking on the exhaust pipe come on pussy that’s my favorite line as
well hi ginger internship font all D ta the bday actually a lot of people

every video was a test we had the idea to make it and then we had to make it
and then we had to make it next week and next week and next week so we never had
time to slow down yeah yeah it’s just like you grow up just watching and just
consuming so much content and then you’re like hold up like I could
