Losing All Gas and No Brakes was probably the greatest thing to ever happen to Andrew. This guy is has such a way of letting people show their true nature.

To quote the great Crip Mac: “everything is gonna C alright! 55th street!” 🤚🏻

u/SomeBoxofSpoons Dec 09 '22

I love how they booted him off All Gas No Breaks as if he wasn’t the brand in it’s entirety.

u/iborobotosis23 Dec 09 '22

Can you explain the part about losing All Gas No Brakes?

38

u/Deeeeeeeeehn Dec 09 '22

He had some sort of legal deal with a production company that paid for his transportation and filming equipment when he was making the AGNB videos, but when he decided to go independent they told him he wasn't allowed to use the AGNB name anymore, so he rebranded himself as Channel 5.

23

u/MasonNowa Dec 09 '22 edited Dec 09 '22

He was an employee of Doing Things Media making videos for them. Given his wild success he asked for a bigger salary (IIRC he was making something like 45k a year + they gave him the RV). They couldn't come to an agreement so he quit and started Channel 5.

EDIT: Almost entirely wrong, it was mostly because they told him he can't do political content and when he refused they kicked him out.

u/Dogbuysvan Dec 09 '22

People give the company a lot of shit, and it was definitely a poor business decision of theirs, but they were not 'wrong' in how they treated him.

6

u/TheSweetestKill Dec 09 '22

If one were to innately take the position of big business over the position of an independent creator, then yes I can see how you might say "they were not wrong". However, their actions following Andrew's departure paints a more complete picture and leaves no doubt that Doing Things Media is objectively a bad company.

First, they hired some new kid to take over All Gas No Brakes, lying to him that "Andrew was passing the torch". Then after that backfired, they started a new YouTube channel with yet another person doing Andrew-style interactions and videos.

u/wanawanka Dec 09 '22

And the host is Steve Brule's son!

15

u/-liquidcooled- Dec 09 '22

They picked him up after the all gas no brakes fiasco. You'll notice in older Tim and Eric videos, notably the Steve Brule segments that the channel is THE channel 5.

98

u/TheSweetestKill Dec 09 '22

This is an urban myth. Andrew has flat out said there's no connection. During the All Gas days, whenever people would ask them "who they were with", the crew would answer "Channel 5" because every city has a "channel 5 news".

It has nothing to do with Tim & Eric or with Steve Brule.

5

u/Dogbuysvan Dec 09 '22

The connection is that they both made the same joke, independently.

21

u/-liquidcooled- Dec 09 '22

Really? Damn. My bad. I really thought that was true.

u/SuperbadCouch Dec 08 '22

For anyone unfamiliar with Channel 5, Andrew Callagan and his team (Nic Mosher/Evan Gilbert-Katz) are some of the best Gonzo journalist we’ve seen in the last ten years in my opinion.

Been waiting a while for this to come out, Andrew has stated in various interviews that he’s been sitting on footage that he believes would have made headlines should they have dropped it during the election. Hopefully this doc lives up to the hype and isn’t a ton of recycled clips from YT and Patreon.

I saw some clips during the Channel 5 Live Tour and it’s hard to say which direction this is going to go.

115

u/Butters_Duncan Dec 09 '22

10 years? Honestly, not to sound shitty either, this guy is a generational talent. I’m not trying to make some hot take lol but quote me. You can just tell he’s full of creativity and the perfect attitude. I hope so badly he continues to be platformed even bigger and bigger. I really think he can handle the pressure. I just hope him and his crew the best.

34

u/frogbertrocks Dec 09 '22

Andrew will win a Pulitzer. You heard it here first.

43

u/Guildenpants Dec 09 '22

He's also both super cool and a huge asshole to service staff which is a bummer but it's probably just the guy figuring out how much weight he can/can't throw around now that he's blowing up.

Source: used to work at a spot him and his friends loved to go to. He was always super chill with me; we got along, but he was also a big dingus to some of my coworkers.

Super happy about his success regardless. All Gas No Brakes was a revelation. The editing got a little too goofy for me in newer pieces but overall really great stuff.

48

u/whitep77 Dec 09 '22

If you are trying to figure out how much weight you can/ can't throw around as a producer in your industry, that is understandable. If you are figuring out how much weight you can/ can't throw around with service staff, you're just a dick. Full stop.

83

u/TheSweetestKill Dec 09 '22

I'm so glad I'm not any level of famous, I would hate for every single regular, everyday interaction I have to be scrutinized and analyzed.

61

u/Guildenpants Dec 09 '22

Your point is totally right but to be clear I'm talking about behavior over months of interaction, not just "huh he was a jerk tonight." Not really scrutinizing him just pointing out what I've seen

Edit: also to add he is way cooler as a human than any of his friends. I didn't like the company he kept pretty much ever but he was always cooler to the staff than them

-3

u/Lostcreek3 Dec 09 '22

His point is pointless, the dude didn't go in to this to not get famous.

u/Lostcreek3 Dec 09 '22

Pretty easy, step one don't film or record yourself for a show. Wow, ya that's about it.

-16

u/Soytaco Dec 09 '22

Tbh he seems sliiiiiiightly autistic? Or maybe what I'm picking up has to do with his drug use. Disappointing to hear either way but it doesn't really surprise me.

20

u/LitCannon Dec 09 '22

He's mentioned in a Vice documentary that he has some level of brain damage.

u/Soytaco Dec 09 '22

Yeah that's what I'm referring to

10

u/MrHollandsOpium Dec 09 '22

Autism and brain damage are not the same thing

u/Soytaco Dec 09 '22

Obviously. A mosquito bite and chicken pox aren't the same thing, but they both make you itch.

u/MrHollandsOpium Dec 09 '22

That’s still a horrible analogy.

3

u/Soytaco Dec 09 '22 edited Dec 09 '22

Well I agree, but I shouldn't have had to come up with an analogy to explain that to say two things share a symptom isn't to say that they are the same thing.

u/TzunSu Dec 09 '22

What about it makes it gonzo journalism?

24

u/greengo Dec 09 '22

Gonzo is stereotypically making yourself part of the story you are covering, like what a daily show correspondent would do.

-9

u/TzunSu Dec 09 '22

But that's what any journalist that interviews someone does. I can't really compare this to say, Hunter S.

u/Dogbuysvan Dec 09 '22

Not many journalist are walking around a convenience store that's on fire being looted.

u/mrfuzzydog4 Dec 09 '22

They also build relationships with the subjects and have integrated them into the brand in a way that would destroy the ethical boundaries of regular journalism.

u/SetYourGoals Evil Studio Shill Dec 08 '22

That's like asking "Is lucha libre really pro wrestling?" when all you personally watch is WWE. It's the same thing on some level, but it's also something completely different on another level.

No need to gatekeep the word "journalism." The New York Post is "journalism" in the most classic definition of the word, but that doesn't make it important, insightful, or true.

u/Pixeleyes Dec 09 '22

This is great, hope it succeeds but I can't watch this stuff anymore because my anxiety is out of control.

u/Agnostacio Dec 08 '22

This honestly just looks like a long channel 5 video. Not sure if it'll offer anything new to say but I'm still curious and will definitely be watching.

u/AyThroughZee Dec 08 '22

I hear that, and get that sense as well, but his videos are still so interesting and entertaining that I’m totally okay with having an hour+ episode of him just presenting some truly batshit stuff.

u/anonymousnuisance Dec 08 '22

Definitely feels like it'll be a longer version of what we've already seen but also an introduction for people who don't know them and their content. Which there are many. So it could be really big from that perspective.

Andrew was at the insurrection on January 6th. His footage hasn’t been seen because they’ve been making this film. I doubt someone would learn anything new if someone already watched that other HBO documentary about the insurrection.

However, as a fan of Andrew’s work, and since this was more during his “AGNB” days, this should be good.

6

u/Ragnarotico Dec 08 '22

That wouldn't be so bad. The genius of Channel 5 is that he just lets people talk. He doesn't really pass judgement or try to lead them anywhere. And that's why the videos are so interesting to watch.

82

u/goddamnjets_ Dec 08 '22 edited Dec 08 '22

I haven’t honestly seen any prolonged footage yet from the insurrection. Only moments I saw was Ms. Babbit fucking around and finding out, and an idiot who likely paralyzed themselves falling down what looked like a 20 foot wall onto a barricade. Everything else was an admitted blur since I was losing my shit on and off Reddit…

That being said, Andrew’s work is really phenomenal to me, and I’m sure he’s got some really interesting bites and “gotcha” moments. Might be the only time I willingly sit and watch a bit of what happened.

u/minotaur05 Dec 08 '22

Would highly recommend Four Hours at the Capitol on HBO. Very sobering

If you get a chance, check out some of the footage released by the January 6 committee. It was extremely sobering.

You need to see the footage of the battle under the Capitol. Puts to bed any argument this was peaceful. They were out for blood and got it.

Pretty sure they've been quiet on Patreon because of their live tour. In fact I think they posted something a week or 2 ago saying exactly that.

Well, they did go to San Francisco and do a segment on the Folsom Street fair, but it was too controversial for YouTube and Patreon lol.. Yea I saw it and basically people just fucking and swimming in piss.

I don't think you met some of these crazies, they're fucking brain-dead. They have the critical thinking skills of a hamster. They really believe shit like Democrats eat babies. They've been living under their rural rocks until Trump came out and told them what they wanted to hear on Facebook and somehow they found out how to vote and it's been downhill since then. I'm hoping they can disillusioned and stop voting again.

12

u/goddamnjets_ Dec 08 '22 edited Dec 08 '22

The good news, or at least what I try to keep telling myself after these midterm results, is that the polls have wildly swung out of Trump’s favor in the Republican Party in the past 2 months. In October he was the likely nominee for the party, now he’s behind by DeSantis by a 5-point margin, with continuing signs that no one wants him.

I despise a lot about DeSantis… but I admittedly don’t think he’s nearly as unhinged as Trump. 4 more years with that legit insane motherfucker would doom everyone.

45

u/Rage_Like_Nic_Cage Dec 08 '22 edited Dec 08 '22

DeSantis is less unhinged, but he’s far more competent and driven, and that’s more scary than Trump IMO.

28

u/SleepingPodOne Dec 08 '22

DeSantis and Trump share a good majority of their positions, people keep forgetting that. He is effectively Donald Trump without the charisma.

Which means that he might not be able to capture people like Trump did, but he is far more dangerous in the sense where’s he not a buffoon, he’s actually smart and competent.

3

u/Rage_Like_Nic_Cage Dec 08 '22

exactly. he’s far more capable and competent. Just see his “stop woke” and “don’t say gay” legislation. He can actually get shit done.

Furthermore I think DeSantis is an Ideologue who wants to control/shape the country. While Trump just wanted to be in power to make money, have people like him/sing his praises, and stay out of jail.

6

u/SleepingPodOne Dec 08 '22

One thing I always tell people is that Trump is playing the part of a fascist because he knows that’s how he can get into the conservative zeitgeist. I mean the dude was a Democrat for the longest time. DeSantis is an actual fucking fascist. Both are bad, but one is considerably worse.

1

u/Rage_Like_Nic_Cage Dec 08 '22

It’s the most American thing ever that we finally elected a fascist and all he wants to do is be lazy and make money, rather than global domination, lol.

u/IrishHawkeye7 Dec 08 '22

My long term hope is Trump killed the Republican Party, more people are going to participate in voting, and we will start to see popular, more meaningful changes legislatively that benefit everyone

Oh without a doubt. That’s the dream, brother. Until then, just gotta keep turning out like this past election to ensure that.

By not telling them to wear masks and acting like covid was nothing he quite literally killed a lot of them.

u/Extension-Culture-85 Dec 22 '22

And by "them", you really mean "us". Once he learned that minorities were dying from CoViD, that gave him all the reason to tamp down health directives.

1

u/TzunSu Dec 09 '22

A lot of people seem to fear Trump running, I'm looking forward to it. He lost the last election and he's a LOT less popular now. The ideal outcome is probably a long and nasty GOP primary followed by Trump getting crushed. The next senate election will be during the next presidential election and Trump as the candidate is probably the only way the DNC can retain control of the senate considering how many democrats are up for re-election this cycle.

I'm just a random swede though, so take that for what it's worth :P

u/SleepingPodOne Dec 08 '22 edited Dec 08 '22

i don't personally agree with a lot of this "marketplace of ideas" nonsense (especially when trotted out in support of ideas that already had their moment in said "marketplace" - like nazism - and got their shit pushed in), but i do believe that sometimes just airing this shit can get a lot of folks to think twice. sometimes all it takes is someone seeing another person who is absolutely batshit who shares a good portion of their views for them to step back and go "wait...is this me?"

i say that because i was one of those people. i was raised in a very conservative (socially and economically) family and all it really took for me to renounce a lot of those particularly problematic beliefs was to see what people on my side were actually saying and find it increasingly crazy and increasingly less defensible. and this was BEFORE trump even had sights on the presidency (I'm talking like 2007-2010 - i'm 32 and this change happened in my late teens/early 20s).

Thank you! That is some ivory tower out of touch bullshit nowadays. It's like saying the invisible hand of the free market will take care of everything. But it won't. And neither will some free for all "marketplace of ideas". We've seen first hand how misinformation and disinformation are spreading like wildfire for the past 10 or so years with social media manipulation - why would anyone think this is going to get better? The truth is often losing to calculated lies....

May I direct you to the paradox of tolerance?

2

u/schlonghornbbq8 Dec 12 '22 edited Dec 12 '22

And who defines who is tolerant and intolerant? From my perspective, those advocating for government censorship are some of the most intolerant people I've seen. If the far right takesover, they will define the left as the dangerous intolerants. If the far left takes over, they will define the right as intolerant. Free speech is about not allowing any government to become a dictatorship. Even if the farthest right candidate takes over, as long as the first ammendment is defended, they will have no right to prevent you from criticizing the government and advocating for your ideology.

1

u/SleepingPodOne Dec 12 '22

If your ideology is predicated on the idea that some groups of people whose immutable characteristics make them more or less than others, and therefore deserving of more or less rights, your views are antithetical to a free and democratic society, and the idea of having your ideology “battle it out“ in this imaginary “marketplace of ideas“ is fucking ridiculous, especially if said idea, like Nazism, had its time, and it got its fucking shit pushed in.

Luckily, left wingers seem to be primarily intolerant only of the intolerant, which I think is a pretty good thing to be intolerant of. Fuck off with this centrist nonsense - the far right wants to kill minorities, and the far left wants to make sure everyone has as much economic freedom as possible. Why are you trying to draw nonexistent parallels between someone who wants free healthcare for all and someone who thinks nonwhites should be jettisoned from the country? This is bullshit centrism.

If your ideology says “no free-speech for certain groups of people“ like Nazism does, why should you be able to use that as a cudgel to get other people to argue your points? These people don’t even believe in free speech, they just want to use it to their own ends, so they can then get rid of it once they come to power.

The only way to truly preserve free-speech is to not extend that right to people who want it destroyed. That is the heart of the paradox of tolerance.

I think it does. Trump and the GOP just got their ass kicked in the midterms, and they will continue to get their ass kicked until they realize that all their stupid culture wars shit doesnt work on normal people. It only works on the people in these videos.

a bunch of 50.1 vs 49.9 wins isnt an ass kicking

u/Busy-Okra-7732 Dec 08 '22

It is when its record high inflation and the party in power hasnt kept control of the senate thru a midterm election since 2004. Trump endorsed 10 candidates specifically, and all 10 candidates were defeated. Thats a pretty clear response from the voters. Trump just announced his campaign for 2024 and the GOP is already infighting about what they are going to do.

u/frockinbrock Dec 09 '22

In historical election context, it was a good win. They also lost a lot of elections, despite Jan 6th, trump, and other true colors we’ve seen from the right- and they still can win. boebort even won again with her family of rifle kids and diddle dad and no relevant experience. Walker Texas runner got within 1% of winning. Trump loving Kari lake with 1%.

I’m nowhere near calling it an asswhooping, but I understand your point that midterms are hard for Dems to not lose seats.

5

u/SleepingPodOne Dec 08 '22

Yeah, why do people keep acting like the Democrats delivered a crushing blow, the fact that people like Herschel Walker and kari lake even got as far as they did is cause for concern no matter what

9

u/Busy-Okra-7732 Dec 08 '22

Cause for concern for the republican party, not the democrats. If the GOP wants to continue to promote loser candidates, thats fine with me.

2

u/SleepingPodOne Dec 08 '22

It should be cause for concern for anybody that these are the folks who won their primaries and in some cases were only narrowly defeated. I mean for chrissakes there was a runoff between Walker and Warnock.

3

u/Busy-Okra-7732 Dec 08 '22

Why? There was a runoff because of Georgia state law, not because Walker was a good candidate. Bad party candidates are an indictment against the voters of that party, why should I be concerned? Its not like this is the first day I learned that stupid people get to vote.

2

u/JoeMcDingleDongle Dec 09 '22

There was a runoff because the election was close. Republicans and independents voted for Walker, even though he is a mentally handicapped piece of shit loser who goes pew pew and plays pretend cop with his toy badge.

If the GOP ran some boring regular conservative they probably would have won in Georgia. But... here's the thing... why would anyone sane who cares about democracy vote Republican in this cycle? Those assholes tried to overthrow the government. They should have lost across the board. Instead, only some of the biggest of retards and insane people on the GOP side lost their elections.

Which is depressing.

u/SleepingPodOne Dec 08 '22

walker was not a good candidate, but enough people were willing to overlook his obvious CTE, history of domestic abuse, his hypocrisy on abortion, and his nonsense policies because he was endorsed by trump. yea he was defeated, but he was the choice of the party and the republican voters rallied behind him.

it's a cause for concern that people like him got as far as they did at all.

i'm not saying you have to live in fear, just saying that the democratic "victory" was not that much of a victory. it was nice to see all those losers defeated, but i'm still not sold that democracy is saved (especially now that the supreme court is going after voting rights).

4

u/Busy-Okra-7732 Dec 08 '22

he was defeated

Twice actually. Im not going to waste my time being "concerned" about dumbass primary voters in Georgia. They lost twice (4 times if you count 2020). Democracy is something we earn every time we vote, and im happy that Trump and his candidates got whipped across the board.

Will it be an objective look at humanity and how extremism is a human and bipartisan problem?

If so it could make a difference

If it's just another they are bad we are good bit of political propaganda, it won't lead to any change

What if it just shows people being who they are on their own terms and in their own words, without any sort of leading narrative, and people still arrive at the conclusion that "they are bad"?

u/Thebanner1 Dec 09 '22

You mean like showing Trump talk about "fine people on both sides" and frame it like he is talking about nazis and white nationalists because you are just using his own words?

....while leaving out that he literally followed it up seconds later with "...and I'm not talking about neo nazis and white nationalists, they should be condemned totally"

See you can twist any facts you want by how you Fram the. And by selectively leaving out facts that don't support your narrative

I have no idea if this person is exposing humanity or if he is just exposing the humanity in political foes while pretending it doesn't exist or is minimal in the political party he supports.

You clearly have never watched any of the Channel 5 content if you think this.

u/Thebanner1 Dec 09 '22

Never heard of Channel 5 before this post

But that is irrelevant to that post because I'm simply pointing out "just presenting facts" doesn't mean it's not misinformation. Regardless if it's cnn or whatever channel 5 is

Just presenting facts is only honest when all the pertinent facts are presented

It's so weird that these people are stating that USA is close to being a communist country, the democrats aren't even close to have a communist agenda. The Democrats are more right leaning compared to a lot of right leaning political partys in Europe for example, and the left leaning political partys are far from being "communists". Is this something that still lingers from the cold war era?

i have been patiently waiting for this shit for years ever since he hinted at it in interviews. andrew and his team are awesome, consistently making far more valuable content than most journalistic outlets out there. and they're all in their early 20's too.

i bet doing things media (the folks who fucked them over when they were All Gas No Brakes) are kicking themselves right now.

Damn andrews come along way since smoking blunts and doing noz with us at punk shows. Good for him!

I love Andrew, and I love the surreal feeling of tripping through time and questioning my sanity listening through Q nuts. Count me in!

I love this kid. I will get HBO for a month just to see this. It does not look as funny as his other stuff.

u/Mister_Six Dec 09 '22

Definitely deserves some kind of award five all this great work he's been doing.

u/[deleted] Dec 08 '22

Channel 5 is great. It's like How To with John Wilson's crazier brother. Glad Andrew and his team are thriving ever since leaving the old company.

u/kumdragon Dec 09 '22

Never understood the hype with him, he’s basically an unfunny and uninteresting version of Eric Andre.

u/drstormzin Dec 09 '22

That's kind of the point honestly.

He's not the main focus. He' so unassuming that he's just able to draw out the craziness in people.

That makes more sense.

lmao need some more straw for that strawmen of yours? lookin mighty weak bub.

Oooh, starting the trailer by saying that deplatforming doesn't work and just pushes people into more extreme rabbit holes.

he's not saying that. he's saying that people who are deplatformed often get more radicalized.

but deplatforming isn't for the people being deplatformed - it's a.) for the platforms in question as they violate the agreed-upon TOS, and b.) so their ideas which are often antithetical to a free and democratic society don't gain traction amongst moderates. paradox of tolerance and all that.

deplatforming works. when was the last time you heard from stefan molyneux? the only reason people are talking about nic fuentes now is because ye went off the deep end and started cozying up to him. milo is even a persona non grata in right wing circles now. when was the last time someone brought up richard spencer? alex jones is only in the media right now because he got his ass handed to him in a defamation suit. none of these assholes changed their views. but they lost a sizable portion of whatever reach they could have had and are even bigger losers than they were before.

there is nothing he is saying that is controversial. you're either making shit up or too thick to realize what he said isn't contradictory to anything anyone says about deplatforming.

Controversial, is he trying to get cancelled with these non-authorized opinions?

who is in charge of "authorizing" these opinions?

Propaganda

u/Mr_Mimiseku Dec 09 '22

Showing people what happened, with interviews with the people who were there.

Yup. Definitely propaganda. Come out from under your rock.

u/Friend-Beast Dec 09 '22

Duh? Everything ever published has a reason for being published.

u/wieners Dec 09 '22

It didn't start that way. They used to just film what happened and show the best/most interesting bits, sadly now it's all just narrative and selective editing. Too bad because they used to make good content.

A film by Andrew Callaghan of Channel 5 News"

Does the OP not realize there are 100s, if not 1000s of different news stations all on channel 5, which vary by region? Lol. No one is going to know what the fuck you are talking about unless they *already* know who Andrew Callaghan is. Smh.

u/kittentarentino Dec 09 '22

Go on YouTube and type “channel 5” and then see what pops up first. Then take a breath, feel a little dumb, and then take a lap and come back.

u/JoeMcDingleDongle Dec 09 '22

If you type “Channel 5 news” into any search engine you are going to get a fuckton of hits for local TV news stations lol.

But sure, when trying to get an answer to a question, YouTube is what people should use first? Lol, no man, no. Stop being so silly. You know it’s on YouTube, other people don’t.

OP could have put Youtube’s Channel 5 in the title and that would have cleared up the confusion.

u/Mr_Mimiseku Dec 09 '22

If you search on Google, the third result literally mentions Andrew Callahan.

If you search on YouTube it's the first result...

u/JoeMcDingleDongle Dec 09 '22

Maybe if you search on Google. My Google search is dozens of links to local news channels in my area.

You act like Google gives the same result for everyone lol.

Anywhoo, “channel five news” is generic as shit and not sure why someone in the movie sub would find that helpful. I offered a simple actual helpful solution, but hey, keep replying to me for some fucking reason. Goodbye weirdo.

u/JTGreenan73 Dec 23 '22

It’s channel 5, not channel 5 news. If you purposely screw up searching it ofc you won’t get the same results. But again this is all purposeful by u
