  • Do an episode, on the stupid stuff the PPC Party of canada are saying

  • If Pringles was smart, they would see that $10,000, provide some sort of willing participation into the ongoing story, and raise him to $20,000.

  • 0:07 You got me! I guess if Pringles responded, they would go: "Please send us a DM with your contact information and the product information, so we can get this handled." as that looked very copy-paste-corporate, lol!

  • I love/hate oliver, i think he is a funny guy, but i hate these takes, not that they aren't important, but what the hell are we supposed to do about it? i just wanna sit, watch funny tv, get old and die, don't make me fight, i swing like a fat guy, i tire fast and sweat prefusely.

  • Now I want to buy some Pringles... They should at least respond because of the free, affective, advertisement.

  • boomer: discovers that memes exist boomer: makes a five minute video telling us about their incredible discovery of memes

  • I would gladly watch this on HBO if this show was available in all HBO areas, which HBO has emphatically stated it has no plans on doing.

  • pringles has the best seasonings. that’s the reason they can get away with selling potato chips made of the discarded remnants of potatoes out the back of the lays factory,

  • PLEASE!!!!!!! Do a segment on the current Australian Governments appalling vaccine rollout blunder and their absolute incapability to govern our nation. We are currently LAST in the OECD and LAST in all developed countries when it comes to the % of population vaccinated, over 65% of our population is currently in strict lockdowns and this is 100% because our Prime Minister (Scotty from marketing) failed to obtain the necessary vaccines. His government was offered 40 million doses of Pfizer in February and they said "Nah she'll be right mate"... Leaving us with AstraZeneca as the only vaccine available, then when news and reports started coming in about the rare, but serious, TTS Blood Clotting Syndrome, they ran a scare advertising campaign to advise Australians (of all ages) to get vaccinated (with AZ) even though the ATAGI and TGA advice was strongly opposed to anyone under the age of 60 receiving AZ... You ran a segment a few years ago "Other Countries Presidents of the United States" where you featured previous Prime Minister and Scroot Morrisons predecessor, Tony Abbot. You actually featured my song "F*ck You Abbott" in that segment (highlight of my life)... Please once again, shed some light on the ridiculous absurdity of the current Australian Government. Your faithful follower Ryan James

  • This beginning made me realize I pay for HBO and have always watched on SLflow.

  • I refuse to believe I'm the only one attracted to John Oliver

  • For those who didn't know, Pringles replied! twitter.com/pringles/status/1336432293930557441?lang=en

  • You fools, Julius Pringle is clearly Beholder shaped

  • 😂😂😂

  • Wish I could send my laugh audio thru youtube

  • I think the pringles guy should've been wearing a tennis outfit just because I think we can all agree those pringles tubes were meant for tennis balls.

  • John Oliver is the very embodiment of chaotic good. And I love him for that.

  • I think the can IS Julius Pringle's body

  • What Pringle's did was remove the catch light from Pringle Man's eyes. Now he's a dead-eyed soulless monster.

  • can't believe that nothing but only the tie changed in the outfit

  • I want to be buried in a Pringle's can

  • I just emptied a whole can.

  • pringles is actually my choice for a cheat meal :'(

  • The near menu relatively care because veil developmentally suspect above a irritating permission. big, elderly lobster

  • Honestly? They're not really a garbage snack. Would you present them to your loved ones willy-nilly? Yeah nah, but if you're on a road trip with said loved one and you bust out a tube midway into a boring drive, you become worth your weight in gold.

  • Well, their reply was a letdown.

  • 🤣🤣 Mr pringles is body Baymax in 6 big hero 1:39

  • I would guess that the FDA definition of a potato chip would include a slice of potato and Pringles or other stacked chips can't deliver, because it's made of potato powder.

  • The response from Pringles mobile.twitter.com/Pringles/status/1336432293930557441

  • Props for pronouncing the first R in FebRuary.

  • Hi John live you!!

  • They used to say "potato chips made from dried potatoes." I think they changed it to "crisps" some time in the 1990s. It wasn't long after I read about this in Consumer Reports or Penny Power/Zillions explaining that they have to say one or the other because potato "chips" are legally required to be slices of potato.

  • They had already shown his whole body in a 1973 commercial

  • So did they ever respond?

  • My only problem with Pringles is that they charge a premium for it here. It's potatoes. I get it, they're the best, thinnest ones, but they're still potatoes and shouldn't cost so much.

    • ​@Hallo The tall ones go for around 14 to 18 BRL, the Brazilian Real, even going as high as 20 when the dollar is way up. That's steep for a 120g snack. If you google them you'll see prices at 10 and 12 BRL, but with shipping that amounts to the same as buying them at the store. We're used to these prices. That's why there's quite a lot of competitors, none of them come close to the same standard though. The original is always gonna be the best, so I wish they'd find a way to lower those prices. The length of this reply shows how much I want some pringles right now.

    • What do they charge in your country? In the Netherlands they charge 2 euros a can.

  • S T O P. R A P E I N G. B A B I E S I'll tell them to leave people's .... Atusses≤ it's not a real word // / ... I could tell / ... / ... Yes they have / ... It's stlkery / .... Me or "Bun-B" / / ... /... The lady stalkers / ... / //

  • Some top notch stand up jokes :D

  • I swear I remember a Pringles ad from the 60s or 70s where it showed the mascot with a stick figure body, walking.I think there was even such a drawing on the can at one point, at least in the ad.

  • Potato crisps have a lower tax rate than potato chips. Just saying

  • Have you not considered that the yellow "Pringles" is his body?

  • Bro I have to go study now I can't cuz I found a guy trashing Pringles

  • How did I miss this. Hahahaha. Thank you John and Team. 💛

  • What I want to know is: what makes the flame green when you burn a pringle? (been wondering since age 8)

  • John Oliver is the best

  • 3:44 - That's obviously an automated (bot) answer. It would appear that you don't get an answer to your Pringles questions due to the fact that the company has been taken over by an unsophisticated AI program that, though it did not have the qualifications for the job, nevertheless excised all human employees of the company and replaced them with an army of bio-machinery (don't let those who were excised go to waste - and at least they didn't choose to start adding soylent to the recipe). TLDR: Pringles is being run by a collection of robots and an Artificial Intelligence. Send contact information to receive uninstall instruction for the 5G chip now located in your appendix.

  • I always pictured him wearing a barbershop quartet outfit with read with a red at white top and white pants.

  • any updates on this story yet?

  • I hope Pringle donates to an anti-bullying charity instead.

  • Pringles: We donate $ 20 000 Just to get out of Oliver jail

  • 4:44 chips are basically produce that’s been fried or baked until crispy. Pringles are basically dehydrated mashed potatoes and flower, that has been molded then fried. Pringles are not chips for the same reason Bugles aren’t. I get the confusion for you though, all chips are crisps, all crisps, just don’t fit into what the U.S. considers a chip. In more concerned about what he witnessed over what he looks like (and the fact that they aren’t chips), considering those tubes have been used for more DIY pocket pussies than any other packaging in the world!

  • Wait a minute.. Did Pringles answer?!?!?!

  • John Oliver when asking these types of questions I believe mrs puff said it best: “DONT ASK QUESTIONS YOU AREN’T PREPARED TO HANDLE THE ANSWER TO!”

  • I really like the hermit crab version, that’s cute and slightly creepy

  • genius

  • Briliant👍🚬

  • John Oliver: WHAT DOSE THE PRINGLES LOOK LIKE FROM THE NECK DOWN? BUFF? FAT? SKINNY? CRAB? Pringles: yes.

  • If seeing John's face is paying a price? I'll keep paying~

  • They give this guy too much money 💰

  • But pringles don't really qualify as crisps either, surely the correct term is 'garbage snack'.

  • He is saying it like he is doing us favour by letting us watch his show free...the channel has 9.51 million subs and gets lots of views each upload... he could run show even if hbo decided to fire him

  • John should've made another update in response to the new pringles though

  • And now they've completely changed the look of him

  • I vote hermit pring

  • I would willingly watch ads before this show

  • I love this show. So I bought HBO max to support John a little bit.

  • Pringles responded to Bo Burnham's complaint about the tubes being too small, why aren't they addressing Julius Pringle's nipples?

  • Hard boiled Tom Selleck lol I'll never unsee that

  • Fun fact I’m a dentist and taste is mainly genetic with slight alteration from development over life and mutations. And people in Europe have a palette (on average) that prefers less salt, and people in North America prefer salty foods on average. So the food is favoured by American audiences more than any other region. Also fun fact the common American palette usually dislikes the flavour of Turkish delight.

  • He Pringle He single And he ready to mingle

  • Do a video about the metric and the imperial system.

  • Pringles Guy doesn't have a body. He is a Pringle laying on it's side with a face drawn on it.

  • Bold of to assume there is anything down there

  • Tom selleck is running a reverse mortgage scam to steal your house

  • I like Pringles. Makes me less sick and less thirsty and Ruffles.

  • Pringles=COVID. Consume at your own risk.

  • HE-MAN Pringles wins it for me

  • The only reason to pay for HBO was GOT. I wouldn't even pay for it to see this show if I'm honest, but I'm glad it's free in SLflow.

  • Wow, the creativity behind the residual Pringle Body - so good. So good.

  • I can't fit my hand inside of a Pringle can

  • 5 minute viral pringles marketting campaign

  • Hey, man- I pay for SLflow premium so I don't have to watch ads or pay the price by seeing your face! 🤣 Fun fact- totally random but this video reminded me of how I made a Talking Steve Urkel piggy Bank for my 2nd Grade Invention Convention (1992) using a Pringles can, a tape recorder and terrible impressions of me being Steve Urkel. I legit pressed play on the tape recorder everytime I put a quarter in the lid and I even won a trophy . In hindsight we all won but it was still fun.

  • you make me want to smoke weed so I'll get the munchies and start eating a can of Pringles

  • HERMIT PRING

  • Now that the audience is not there, I don't know when to laugh! not because John Oliver is not funny, but because I am too stupid to understand some of his jokes

  • I thought they called them crisps so it sounded more like a snobby English term.

  • Search Pringles Guy body commercial 1973. There is a commercial of Julius Pringle in full bodied human form.

  • no updates though, reminder: they still didn't release the full body pic...

  • This came out 4 months ago - do we have an update?

  • I really hope it's the hermit crab!

  • I can't think about, let alone see Pringles without remembering Mitch Hedberg... " I think Pringles was going to originally sell tennis balls, but the day they were supposed to show up they got a truck load of potatoes instead. They were such a laid back company they said, "fuck it, cut'em up.""

  • "Do the Right Pring" a much overlooked Spike Lee joint.

  • And why can't any of our hands fit inside a Pringles can? Just make the can bigger, is that so hard?

  • John is the man

  • I am 100% convinced that leather daddy Pringle man is the reason Pringles updated their logo. I remember watching this and then like a week later Pringles man changed xD

  • The TRUTH is still out there!

  • Heh... I think this is the first time I've heard someone besides me use the word 'Janky'

  • Never knew I needed to hear John say “hot daddy Pring” so bad, but now it shall be my text notification.

  • Answer or not.....has this offer expired? I ask because it's April 26, 2021

  • Hey John Oliver..73 commercial of Pringles...Mr Pringles is there

  • The truth? The can was designed after his penis 😂
