The Try Guys text & drive incessantly on a closed traffic course to see how looking at your phone and not the road stacks up to drunk, high, and sleepy driving. The final episode in our epic four-part education series exploring driving under the influence. #TryGuysDUI

Usually we let our videos speak for themselves, but seeing a lot of comments so I want to clear one thing up if you'll spare a moment to read. Our texting while driving habits were exaggerated for the sake of this video to demonstrate examples of real behaviors out there. I see people texting and driving every. single. day. and we wanted to make a video about the dangers. Using your phone while driving seems to be becoming apart of everyday life, and that is terrifying. We often lean into elements of our character/personality as a way to represent different types of people. In doing so, we also leaned into the edit to make our real life habits look as dangerous as possible to underscore our message. In hindsight, we now see how poorly we come off, especially me (Zach), and for that we apologize. It's a tricky line to make these videos both fun and serious, and at times we come off as callous and reckless during this one. My comment about using my phone the next day was not said to be apathetic, but rather to show that cell phone use is an ingrained and habitual behavior for so many people. I got to a red light, took out my phone, and thought "what the hell am I thinking?" I saw in that moment how using my phone isn't even a conscious activity sometimes, and I imagine for many people it's the same. You can know something is bad and still do it, and that scares me the most. It's not just my life on the line out there, and as someone who was in a nearly fatal car accident as a child I know this as well as anyone. I’ve been guilty of using my phone in my car. I imagine some of you have been too. You tell yourself you can do it safely, but you just can’t. That’s why we made this series - to show people that. I was in charge of this edit and was willing to make myself look bad to prove that point. It seems I should say on the record that the video portrays me as a far more egregious phone user than I really am. I regret how far the video pushes it and am sorry if I disappointed you. I promise our intentions were pure. So, ultimately I’m glad some of you are mad. I hope what you watched disgusts you and that you and your friends never do it. But for those upset that I haven’t learned my lesson, please know that is not the case. Thanks for watching this series and apologies for bogging this final episode down with a long-winded message. I hope you can still enjoy and learn from it. 💚 Zach (and the rest of the guys)

Once when I was walking to school a long time ago I was going to cross the street ahead of a kid (position would of been important) but I decided to stay behind and chat with my friend (the crossing gaurd). My friend and the kid start walking across like we normally would then this person (couldn't see them because I was looking at the people ahead of me) sweeps through almost hitting my friend and the kid. I ran into the street to check if they were alright they were fine and are doing alright to this day but it took me a second to realize that I was going to walk in front of that kid I would of been hit by a car. The person was already gone by then but because of their actions I'm now paranoid to walk across the street there because I could have been hit. I had a big fear of cars then, so seeing that made it worse. I'm still scared of cars but this video brought influenced driving to my attention and I hope that people like Ned, Keith, and Zach realize that I could of and alot of people have died because of their foolish actions. ALSO, thank you Zach and the guys for apologizing about exaggerating your behaviour I see that you are changing and I hope you read this comment to the last word! Drive safe! -Rubix Regalia

I'm glad you added this explanation. I admit, I was extremely upset that any of you would text while driving, especially since I have been run over by a driver who was looking at his cellphone (that's right, run over). All I can hope for is that you take the lessons from making these videos and become more responsible drivers.
Poor Zack 😭

I'm glad that you boys posted something about it - I was seriously worried that one day, I'd wake up to the news that one of you may have been involved in an accident, gotten hurt, died and/or had caused someone else injury or even death. I am definitely not perfect: to be honest, being a professional musician I'm most likely to drive while sleep deprived than anything else. I'm trying to make sure I don't push myself so hard as much because it has these (and longer lasting) consequences. On a separate note (is that pun worthy of Keith? didn't think so...), I work in motor insurance for my P/T day job (!), and I know better than anything else that everybody's favourite thing to do is bitch about insurance premiums... but they don't EVER seem to want to own their contribution to the cold statistics which go into CALCULATING those premiums. I know it's a cold thing to look at but there seems to be a huge disconnect between the price of something that really shouldn't need to exist (but does) until it happens to you. Then it's real. The UK has its fair share of irresponsible drivers (i.e. I have literally seen the average number of CU80's increase over just a couple of years), but I feel like using your phone while driving more of a thing in the US. The prime example that makes me say this is that I used to have a friend who would skype me whilst in the car on the way to somewhere in Texas. I told him to stop doing this in case someone got hurt, and he actually got pissed at me as if I was nagging him or something... ?! Aside from the inherent danger of what he was doing, my thought is this: Surely if the calls, notifications or texts from friends are that important, they deserve your fullest attention when you're OUTSIDE the car; when INSIDE the car you and those around your car deserve the attention of that person who passed their test and was deemed safe by a professional: You. You got this, and can do it properly... remember?

I don't ever text while driving. I have ADHD and ADD so you can only imagine how hard it is for me to focus. 2 years ago I was in a 4 car collision, I was waiting for a car to turn on my way to cosmetology school, and I got hit from behind by a Toyota Tacoma at about 40 to almost 50 mph. 5 seconds later a expedition hit the Toyota and hit me again. My car was the only one that was totaled I had major back injuries and was also told that if my air bags went off I wouldn't be here till this day. (I am very short and have to sit very close.) The guy who first hit me was on there phone. The second guy to hit the car behind me? Also on there phone. I'm lucky to be here.

My mom went on vacation a few months ago, and she almost never even made it onto the plane because of a distracted driver at the Air port. It was winter, so the roads were icy. My mom drives a truck, so it's harder for her to stop while on ice. A lady on the road in front of my mom was on her phone while driving her car through the Air port parking lot, and my mom tried to brake but started skidding across the ice. Fast. She started honking the horn and eventually was able to stop, but if She hadn't she could have killed that lady. That lady, mind you, NEVER looked up for her phone even while my mom was honking at her. It's scary how distracted some people can get, so please be like Eugene and put your phone in your bag or something if you know it's going to be a distraction for you. Drive safe 💙

I know others have posted their experiences, but I almost got run over at a crosswalk with a four-way stop by a driver using the glance-down method of being on her phone. If I was also distracted, she 100% would have hit me. She didn’t stop her car until she was in the crosswalk. Just please be mindful everyone.

My friend is without exaggerating, ADDICTED to texting while driving & I HATE to get in the car with her. It gives me such bad anxiety just imagining a crash just because she thinks her phone is more important than our lives and of those driving around us. So many times she's almost hit the curb or ran stop signs and almost hit pedestrians. Smh. Why can't people just concentrate on the road? Please don't text and drive or drive distracted life is too precious.

I think texting and driving is a huge problem. I don't have a license yet, but I already am uncomfortable walking and texting and on my two attempts at driving I was wayy too busy to even think about anything other than my surroundings. Also I feel uncomfortable just changing the radio station since that's distracting for me to.

when i was 15 years old, i was involved in a car crash on the m6 in the UK where a van didn’t push his brakes early enough. it was constant stop start traffic and required concentration. this man looked down to his phone and had he have not looked up in time, i don’t think i would be writing this. when driving at such high speeds you need the quickest reaction times and when looking at your phone you do not have them. if you use your phone whilst driving, think of the youngsters you could kill. think of the fact if you did kill them you would constantly think what if i’d had 2 more seconds of reaction time or what if i’d not looked i could’ve prevented it. is a text really worth murdering innocent people and a hefty jail sentence?
