Before the show started, Brian and Justin tried to do a music video breakdown of "Turn Your Back on Me" by Kajagoogoo, but Justin's internet kept going out and ruined the bit.

Scam School is About to Cross 1,000,000 YouTube Subscribers

It looks like, sometime in the middle of the show, the Scam School YouTube channel will be the 997th channel ever to pass 1 million subscribers. It is quite an achievement that is a decade in the making. Brian and Justin talked about the history of Scam School and how it is what brought them together for the first time. All the while, Brian continually refreshed the YouTube analytics page and watched the number of subscribers increase.

Will it happen during the show? WHO KNOWS?!



Brian crossed a million YouTube subscribers; a feat achieved by less than 1000 channels in the world. Congratulations to Brian, Brandt, Bryce and everyone else who has made Scam School what it is.

Paying Back Old Debt

So the guys are awesome at promising things for future episodes and not delivering. So they asked the Chatrealm to put together a doc of all the broken promises and they will give a judgement on each item as to whether or not they intend to fulfill their promise.
