Review – Eating 15 Pancakes


I’M FORREST MACNEIL,
AND AS ALWAYS, I WILL REVIEW ANY EXPERIENCE
YOU WANT ME TO, NO MATTER WHAT IT IS. – YOU READY, FORREST?
– YES, I AM. – OKAY. THIS COMES FROM NICK
IN SYOSSET, NEW YORK. – AHA. – HEY, FORREST. SO, ON THE BACK OF THIS BOX
OF PANCAKE MIX, THEY TELL YOU HOW TO MAKE
15 PANCAKES, BUT IT DOESN’T TELL YOU
HOW TO MAKE ANY FEWER THAN THAT. SO HERE’S THE THING–
I LIVE ALONE. DO THEY EXPECT ME
TO EAT 15 PANCAKES? WHAT’S IT LIKE
TO EAT 15 PANCAKES? – NO. REALLY? THAT’S THE, UH– THAT’S THE PROFOUND
LIFE EXPERIENCE HE WANTS TO KNOW ABOUT–
EATING 15 PANCAKES? – THAT’S HIS REQUEST, SO… – YES, THAT IS…
[clears throat] THE REQUEST
THAT HAS BEEN MADE. OKAY, NICK, I’M GOING TO COVER YOUR REQUEST
IN BUTTER AND SYRUP AND DIG IN TO TRY TO FIND
SOME IMPORTANT MEANING IN A GIANT, STEAMING PILE
OF FLAPJACKS. EATING 15 PANCAKES. – YUM.
– AHH. THOUGH THIS TASK
WAS CLEARLY MORE SUITED TO A FRATERNITY BROTHER
WHO HAD LOST A BET THAN TO A LIFE REVIEWER, I PREPARED MY STOMACH
AND MY NERVES FOR A VERY LARGE BREAKFAST. THE WORLD RECORD
FOR PANCAKES EATEN IN ONE SITTING
IS 73 PANCAKES. THAT IS HELD
BY A RUSSIAN MAN WHOSE LIFE MUST BE
AN UNENDURABLE HELLSCAPE OF EXCRUCIATING SADNESS. PERSONALLY, I DOUBT
I’VE EVER HAD MORE THAN TWO PANCAKES
IN A MONTH. – OKAY, FIVE TALL STACKS
OF PANCAKES. – YES. – THEY SAY BACK IN THE KITCHEN
IF YOU CAN FINISH IT ALL, WE’LL PUT YOUR PICTURE
UP ON THE WALL. – MM, NO, I DON’T THINK SO,
BUT THANK YOU. MAY I HAVE AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT
OF WATER, PLEASE? – YOU GOT IT.
– ALL RIGHT, GOOD. THIS CERTAINLY IS
AN UPSETTING NUMBER OF PANCAKES. HERE WE GO. [dramatic music] ♪ THEY’RE TASTY… FOR NOW. ♪ THREE PANCAKES IN,
AND I ALREADY FEEL THAT I HAVE
GREATLY OVERINDULGED. I AM FULL OF PANCAKES. ANY RATIONAL PERSON
FEELING THE WAY I DO NOW WOULD DEFINITELY STOP. [chuckles] ♪ THERE’S A VERY LOUD THRUMMING
IN MY EARS. THE BLOOD FEELS VERY SLOW. OH, GOD. I HAVE NOW EATEN
TEN PANCAKES, AND ON THE BRIGHT SIDE,
I CAN SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THIS
DISGUSTING TUNNEL, BUT… IT HAS NOW BEEN 45 MINUTES SINCE I STARTED EATING, AND THE PANCAKES
ARE NO LONGER HOT. THESE AREN’T FOOD. – YOU’RE GONNA BE FINE, BABY. – WITH 1 1/2 PANCAKES TO GO,
I HAD HIT A WALL. MY PRODUCER, GRANT,
MADE THE UNPRECEDENTED MOVE OF STEPPING OUT
FROM BEHIND THE CAMERAS TO PROVIDE MUCH-NEEDED
MORAL SUPPORT. – HEY, YOU KNOW YOU GOT
TO FINISH THESE PANCAKES, RIGHT? – YEAH. – YOU DO, MAN.
– MM. – THIS IS YOUR SHOW.
DON’T BAIL ON IT. – GO AWAY, PLEASE. – I’M JUST DOING
WHAT YOU TOLD ME TO DO. I’M NOT GOING TO LET YOU
BACK DOWN. REMEMBER? “EVEN IF I BEG TO STOP,
DON’T LET ME.” THAT’S WHAT YOU SAID. – THIS ONE IS REALLY STUPID. – DO YOU REMEMBER
WHAT YOU TOLD ME ABOUT THE GUY
WHO SPENT ALL HIS TIME GROWING FUNGUS ON A STICK? AND EVERYBODY TOLD HIM
TO KNOCK IT OFF, AND HE WAS GONNA, UNTIL IT TURNED OUT
TO BE PENICILLIN. – MM-HMM. – THIS COULD BE
YOUR PENICILLIN, FORREST. – [sighs] [suspenseful music] ♪ [laughter,
cheers, and applause] – YOU DID IT.
YOU DID IT! [laughing] OKAY, I’LL TAKE THIS
WHEN YOU’RE READY. – AS I LEFT THE RESTAURANT, I SCANNED MY SOUL
FOR SOME GREATER WISDOM TO SHARE WITH HUMANITY. [heaving] [spits]
UGH. [groaning softly] YEAH, THERE’S NOT REALLY A WHOLE LOT MORE
TO SAY ABOUT THAT. IT WAS EXTREMELY UNPLEASANT
AND SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. EATING 15 PANCAKES–
HALF A STAR.

  1. Is that the same dude who played "Crumb" The famous cartoonist in that movie " American splendor?

  2. Too bad forest never got an inquiry about what it’s like to sleep with your assistant. Get AJ a little more involved in the show.

  3. Moly Schuyler ( maybe misspelled) would eat those 15 pancakes in less than 3 minutes easy. I’m sure she could easily be that world record of 65 too.

  4. give me a wifi and laptop and i can eat all of that no problem even with some fried chicken

  5. Solution: Divide the pancake ingredients by 15. Then, multiply that amount by the number of pancakes you want to eat.

  6. "Three pancakes in and I already feel as though I have greatly over-indulged" i'm cackling at my ceiling rn

  7. What's it like for your assistant who looks like SHE NEVER EATS. Damn give her a sandwhich I can see her arteries without an MRI

  8. I cant believe I found a more criminally underrated show than The Eric Andre Show. It took 7 years for the world to catch up to Eric Andre, 7 fucking years man.

  9. I love pancakes 15 no problem but not all at the same time, like he said they were cold after the first plate, order more as you go. Cold pancakes are no good

  10. I would want them to bring the next stack out once im finished with the current stack. Otherwise they get cold

  11. American pancakes don't look all that appetizing. They look heavy and too damn sweet with that sirup. Danish pancakes are thin and spread with a bit of sugar and marmalade of choice flavour; roll it and you have a tasty treat. Hell, you can even add a bit of vanilla icecream.

    I guess it's just what we're used to that's the most appealing.

  12. "there's a very loud thrumming in my ears" 🤣🤣🤣
    I lost it when he used that word….I had an idea what it meant but I googled it. "Thrum" – a continuous rhythmic humming sound

  13. I'm 180 pounds 5'10 and I once ate 15 pancakes for breakfast and I loved it, the only down side is I had to take a massive shit

  14. What the fuck are those "pankakes" anway? They look like they are made in a tiny pot rather than a pan. And why are they so thick?

  15. So glad I found this I loved him when he was on MadTV one of fav cast members lol but this is hilarious 🤣🤣🤣

  16. If you believe in Allah comment this on 5 youtube videos. Don't just ignore this because it says in the Quran if you deny him, he will deny you in front of his son in the gates of paradise. This is the simplest test. If you love Allah and you are not ashamed of it, copypaste this and post in on 5 youtube videos.

  17. So damn jealous! I want 15 pancakes. Side note: that producer guy is so creepy. Maybe it's just the way he talks.

  18. Everyone always overestimates their pancake limits. Each time they do… Well, there's one less pancake eater and one more headstone

  19. I just ate three pancakes and a steak omlet and feel like im having a baby. This guy had quadruplets in comparison.

  20. I'm 3 or 4 years too late but dammit now I'm gonna watch every episode like I did WKUK I recently discovered a few months ago. Lol
