Sure. It’s easy for any celebrity to sit down and partake in a normal type of interview. Common question and answer sessions are a breeze for stars such as comedian Seth Rogen and actor Dominic Cooper and have basically become second nature for them. But, what would happen if the interviewer put Rogen and Cooper in the hot seat? Literally. Would they be able to stand the heat or would they beg to get out of the kitchen?
On the season 3 finale of the YouTube series Hot Ones, we learned the answer to those questions. Hot Ones is a web series by First We Feast where host Sean Evans sits down for a little chat with some serious A-List celebrities. During the course of the interview, however, the celebrities are challenged to also eat progressively spicy and hot chicken wings while also answering questions. Sounds a little ridiculous, right? Wrong! It’s absolutely hilarious and the interviews are totally quality too.
The season 3 finale featured Rogen and Cooper as they chowed down and chatted about their AMC hit series Preacher. While the two try to keep their cool while downing hot, hotter and then the hottest wings available, they dish on their near-death experiences, what it’s like being flatmates with James Corden and even inspires a new NSWF hot sauce name.
Who would have ever thought that hot sauce and spice could be so much fun? Check out the spicy video below and visit the First We Feast YouTube channel for all of season 3, currently available. Season 4 is set to premiere starting July 20th with new episodes launching every Thursdays at 11 am EST.
Warning: Video contains some NSFW language because, well, they are REALLY hot, hot wings!
