A popular YouTube channel, Try Guys, consists of Ned Fulmer, Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld, and Eugene Lee Yang. Four of them are involved in writing, producing, direction, shooting, and acting. The group was created at BuzzFeed, and they subsequently separated themselves from the internet media company in 2018.
‘The Try Guys’ was a group formed by four of them while working at BuzzFeed in 2014. The first video was totally based on timing, and according to Kornfeld, “It really came down to who was then willing to show their butts.”
The group started shooting in 2014, and they then posted “Guys Try Ladies’ Underwear for the First Time” under BuzzFeed Motion Pictures. The video then became viral, and most of their videos became viral too. Seeing this, they decided to get separated and later started their own YouTube channel under the name “The Try Guys.”
After separation, they saw vast popularity, and their viral videos garnered over a billion views across the social media platforms. Their popular show Squad Wars was premiered on YouTube Red in early 2017.
Their one of the most-watched video is “The Try Guys’ Try Labor Pain Simulation,” and it has garnered then over 33 million views.
The group has appeared in many popular magazines like Today and also several viral videos and interviews. They were also a nominee for the Show of the Year at the 2017 Streamy Awards. A year later, they hosted the 8th annual Streamy Awards (2018) and also won the audience choice: Show of the Year award. They usually shoot their videos in Los Angeles County, California, in Glendale and Burbank, but they haven’t restricted themselves from shooting in a specific place.
The group left their parent company Buzzfeed on June 16, 2018, and then started their own independent production company. They named their production company 2nd Try LLC and 2nd Try LLC gained all rights to ‘The Try Guys’ brand. They also released a book titled ‘The Hidden Power of F*cking Up,’ and HarperCollins published it on June 18, 2019.
On May 4, 2019, the group announced that they would be embarking on a tour of 20 cities nationwide tour. They named this tour as “Legends of the Internet” as a part of their “Summer of Try.” Later they did a tour of Australia and Singapore. Their journey ended with a tour of the Pacific Northwest.
