Youtube Comment: I feel like i just watched two greek gods fighting
Arguably, every episode begins with one, where a fully-primal Eric utterly demolishes the entire set in different, creative ways... only for it to be replaced and look brand new in literally three seconds, the implication being that this happens often enough that the crew have multiple sets on standby.
The absolute best has to be when Eric has a wire hooked up to his back, and proceeds to destroy the set like a rag doll.
The 2012 New Years Eve special ends abruptly when Eric discovers that all the crew members are Mayans, who proceed to sacrifice him on live TV to please their God. Eric then thanks all the celebrity guests as he's being cut open.
Eric, rather than being excited for New Years, is excited for two years...
At one point, Hannibal, clearly fed up, tells Eric point blank to just start the show... where Eric pauses in his destruction to tell Hannibal he's busy.
Eric goes out on the street and interviews people as "Spideric Andre", aka him wearing a special suit jacket that gives him four extra arms. The sight of him awkwardly fumbling around with his extra arms is a sight to behold.
The undeniable highlight of the whole bit is when Eric goes up to a random guy and asks him in a stereotypical old Jewish man voice, "Did you know they took Benedryl off the market?" The man angrily responds "Why would they take that off the market?" in complete seriousness without so much as a sideways glance at Eric's extra arms.
Chris Jericho's "interview". The moment that the poor man sits down in the chair, Hannibal starts stuffing pancakes into his mouth while screaming and sobbing. Eric then asks "So, how did you get your staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah..." and starts convulsing with his eyes rolled back in his head for a full minute. Jericho just stares into the middle distance with an expression of total bafflement, and doesn't say a word the entire time. The interview ends with Jericho falling through the set's floor.
Krysten: I have successfully avoided ever seeing that video for my 31 years on the planet until right this second. Thank you.
Eric asking Malaysia Pargo "Were you named after that flight that broke up over the Indian ocean? AKA, the world's toilet!" *awkwardly tries to high-five her*Immediately afterwards Eric suddenly asking Pargo about her opinion of Dennis Rodman's ties to North Korea, which gets a blunt "I don't fuckin' know!" response from her. The audience applauds anyways.
From the same segment, Hannibal, normally the Straight Man, asks out of nowhere: "Do you think crabs is more embarrassing than AIDS?"
"So, everything is in the NEWWWWWWS, TODAY!" *stomps on a bunch of pedals*
The entireOctopus segment is side-splittingly hilarious, but bonus points go to the man at the end, sitting at a table (apparently alone) while Eric and his "tentacles" surround the man while chanting "ARE YOU LONELY? ARE YOU LONELY?" Funnier still because if you look closely, the man clearly has a small smirk on his face at their ridiculous antics.
Eric and Hannibal's "Support the Troops" discussion, along with their thoughts on the musical direction their band should be taking.
The ending of the interview, in which a random balding fat guy runs on stage, grabs the mic from Eric, and demands "Investigate 3-11!" before he and Eric start dancing randomly. Tyler, after a few confused seconds, promptly joins in.
Eric Andre interviews a bear. Yes, a bear. Eric's and Hannibal's reactions indicate that neither of them were expecting a live, unrestrained bear to walk out onto the stage.
Asa Akira's interview, which gets interrupted when an estranged ex of Hannibal suddenly shows up to berate him loudly and humorously attack him, like ripping off her weave and smacking Hannibal with it. Hannibal himself looks like he wasn't expecting it one bit and is visibly Corpsing all the while. After the woman leaves, Akira, confused, asks Hannibal who the woman was.
Eric: (annoyed) Here we go again with this fucking story...
In the same interview, Eric offers Akira some desert. Akira asks Eric if the desert's laced with a date rape drug, which Eric replies yes. She eats it anyways.
Nothing can compare to the ending of the first segment of that interview: A random stagehand falls from the ceiling and lands on Eric's desk, much to Akira's horror. Hannibal then rips his shirt open and screams, freeze frame on "We'll be Right Back".
Right in the middle of a conversation, Eric suddenly announces it's time to play "Pick a Hot Chick's Briefcase", with three ladies with a briefcase showing up. Peeples is asked to pick a lady and picks Lady #2. Lady #2 pulls out a gun from her briefcase and shoots the other two women before being shot dead herself. The crowd starts chanting "Number 2" while Hannibal starts hollering maniacally. And then a random woman tackles a stagehand onto Eric's desk, which is immediately replaced by stagehands as if they had a warehouse full of desks for Eric to break. And all of this happens within mere seconds of each other. Afterwards, Hannibal just tries to continue the conversation with Peeples as if nothing happened.
