I think it's safe to say Luke earned the employee of the month award.
I just hope Luke is getting proper treatment for his whiplash injury.
Man he is the best goal keeper ever
Plot twist: He clicked the malware link that got them hacked
@Doubie They where under cardiac arrest, yes.
He pretty much saved the company right there.
Luke's blank stare as he envisions the collapse has got to be the best part of this
@Jeremy Yerby Oof
@Mujtabish they got hacked
What has happened to their channel? If i search linus tech tips, I see the channel with 15.someting subs, but the name is LinusTechTipsTemp, and almost all videos are gone.
@soup live luke reaction
Solid 13 seconds of oh my god there goes the company
If Luke had remained silent and the livestream had ended, anything that Linus said the next day would have been completely ignored because his excuse of "thinking hard R was for another thing" would not have held up. However, because the incident occurred live, viewers were able to see how confused Linus was and how shocked Luke was by the situation.
Eh, it has evidence. Dude said it was used in American Dad and dude said it it was casually used in the early 2000's. There's evidence to pull him out.
I even had my doubts that he mightve been told what to say. But American Dad episodes don't say that.
@Narru twitter isn't real.
@ThreepE0 yes it would’ve.
nah, american dad never had the n word and did have the r word so he was fine
You're not alone Linus. I also thought Hard-R was referring to mental disability. After watching this clip I checked that it wasn't April fool's day and then googled it myself. I have literally been in this position and admitted to using the Hard-R by mistake. Nobody did me the solid of making sure I knew what I was saying. #GiveLukeARaise
I hate to admit this but I also thought Hard R referred to the handicapped slur and not the african american slur. I thought the hard referred to the r being capitalized because it would be the first letter, not the last letter.
@PrograError what alternative do you suggest?
@HamazuraGOD Wait I thought the hard-r was rape, and you couldn't say that on youtube, now there are 3 R-Words?? But we already have N-Word for that, why change the N to an R?
Honestly I was on the same boat as Linus, but like I never knew the term Hard-R existed. When he said Hard-R I was thinking the R word about disabled people and not anything else, because it was indeed very common back in early 2000s to use the R word just as often as siblings calling each other names.
I can't imagine being the people behind the scenes watching this unfold, Luke saved the company there but imagine the fear everyone in the room had in that moment.
need to see how dan reacted
@BOREALUM ok then say it if it's not a big deal to you
@BOREALUM You do know what the term "racial slur" means, right?
Watching Luke's life flash before his eyes when this was live was WILD. Then seeing him navigate out of it and right the ship is just a masterclass on how to deal with this
I wasn't watching because I was driving but this incident happened right as I was pulling into a gas station and I had to take a minute before turning the car off to wait for the clarification because I figured he meant the R word when he said American Dad but I was stressing over the potential Twitter nuke that almost detonated.
Shout out to Luke for singlehandedly saving three companies.
@Captain Cosmos Im not sure, but i think Creator warehouse is a completely separate company, owned by Linus.
Linus Media Group is the parent company, while Floatplane and Creator Warehouse are subsidiaries to that company. If I have that right.
@Joel Justin floatplane is owned by linus media group
Does LMG own floatplane anymore though? I know it was founded by the team.
You know you're a good person when literally everyone on the internet knows you didn't mean what you said and must be misunderstanding something lol
@NinjapowerMS oh well yeah people would be upset if someone admitted to using the n word with the hard r casually, pretty reasonable thing to be upset at
@Logan Nah I meant if this wasn't saved by Linus's co host.
@NinjapowerMS i’m a pretty heavy twitter user and they didn’t care about this lol it was very clear what he meant
@NinjapowerMS nah actually from what I've seen everyone finds it funny and loves linus
"linus is a nice person"
>he doesn't know
Luke lost both a good friend and the company he worked for, before realising he knew better and then doing what he always does, questioning what the hell Linus is on about and saving his friend, friendship and job!
This is Lukes real new job...
@tec nk yea no doubt actually, probably since day one
It's not new if you have seen previous wan shows . He is always saving Linus
This would make for an absolutely perfect subplot for an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Larry has his "hard r" conversation with someone and then they go around telling people that he's racist. Jeff confronts Larry about the rumor going around and Larry explains the conversation to Jeff. Jeff informs him of his mistake. Larry spends the rest of the episode trying to get himself into the same room with the person that he initially had the conversation with to explain himself. The episode ends with Larry screaming "RETARD! I MEANT RETARD!" at the person in some public setting.
Cut to the person he initially had the conversation with hearing him yelling that, cue music
That would be a good episode lol
reminds me of the "affirmative action" episode
OHHHHHH that's what he meant by the 'R' word. I had no idea what word was being referred to and was wondering if it was some North American term.
I don't usually laugh at videos but I've watched Luke's reaction at least 30 times and have laughed every time. This is comedy gold. Can't wait to watch it another 100 times.
Bro got stunlocked💀💀💀
@Srikar it's comedy gold 😂
Everytime Linus says "I've dropped my fair share of hard Rs" I fucking lose it
Luke's confusion throughout this was fucking awesome. He's looking at him the entire time trying to fit this puzzle together so he still has a job in the morning and Linus is just casually talking about "hard R" this and "hard R" that. Some of the funniest moments happen by pure accident.
Luke's expressions in this clip are a work of art. Man went through the 5 stages of grief before he realised what was going on
@Tyler Shuman it's comedy gold 😂 i've never seen him so flustered before
The truth is coming out about Linus
No cap. It’s on repeat
I’ve rewatched it twice now just only looking at Luke’s reactions. It’s so good
Not joking, Luke really should get some form of a bonus for navigating this situation so well. Dude saved LMG millions of dollars in brand damage from a misunderstanding. This could have been a complete disaster if that wasnt clarified in that moment.
@Vader The internet loves its clips and very context oriented cropping
@Max Tuledo Artesian Builds
Does anyone remember that one pc boutique company that had an arrogant owner that did a livestream that caused the company to implode?
American Dad has never dropped a hard r, so I think it would have been easy for people to understand his confusion. If he hadn’t said the American dad part, and only said he had dropped his fair share of hard r’s then that would be different.
Good job Luke on single-handedly saving LMG.
I love the difference between Luke's live reaction and Luke's recounting of his reaction.
Luke reacting: *silently shakes his head in disbelief*
Luke recounting his reaction: "I was like WOOOOOOAAAAAHHHH!!!"
Based on the era, I knew exactly what Linus meant....but it was fun to watch Luke try to remain collected while you know he is in damage control mode in his head 🤣
@Shrubs I don't remember the n word being used in American Dad so I was confused.
when he said american dad used it i was a little surprised (because i thought family guy censored it so i was surprised when they went back)
when linus said he was dropping multiple hard r's i for sure thought there was some kind of misunderstanding lmao
genuinely surprised Linus is still alive with how accident prone he is
Casually dropping the hard R lol
4:22 - Luke getting hit in the face with a new reality is such a testimony to his character.
The shock was so real I felt it through the screen.
When you know the punchline of all of this it's SO HILARIOUS 😂😂😂
It seems graphic card wasn't the only thing Linus accidently dropped.
Luke handled the situation perfectly. Give him a medal!
@Kenny Yuliandrika just like the "Hard R's" he dropped for funsies right?
*casually. Not accidentally
@Stan Lee oh no...
@Stan Lee Genitalia?
@Stan Lee The hole?
Luke's thousand yard stare, thinking he just lost everything around him was incredible. This was a snafu of the century.
This was a WILD ride lmao, Luke looked so shocked and handled it absolutely perfectly. And I can only imagine what the employees watching live were thinking...
Linus is a special kinda man. And I'm so glad he has good people around him.
I don't mean that as an insult, it takes guts to accept you can't do everything.
Imagine being in their offices listening to this live. I bet a lot of desks were being cleaned off that first few seconds.
And with that, Luke used his one lifeline to ask the most important question in LMG history.
*I always knew Linus would drop his company like he drops electronics*
>account gets hacked
Using the "hard R" wrong is such a R****d move, this has so many layers
@Logan B what was the word ?
@Dead - Channel to be clear the word he was using was "Retard" not the N word. He thought that was the hard R word, I had to google that as I didn't know myself.
He also apparently drops the hard "R" LMAO XD
That moment of, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." 😂😂😂 poor Luke having to put that fire out live, but congrats on saving literally everyone's jobs 😂
I'll be honest; I totally understood what Linus meant and was confused about what Luke was going on about until they clarified, and was like "OH CRAP HE'S RIGHT."
Thank God for Luke knowing Linus well enough to know he was just putting his foot in his mouth
I was really glad to see that in the PLclip live chat when this happened, mostly everyone just automatically knew what Linus meant and he was mixing up what hard R meant and didn't take it at face value as the worst possible interpretation.
thank you Luke, we all love that you are always near Linus to save the company
Appreciate the balls it took to actually clip and upload this on the official channel. 👍
@Ninothere’s nothing to even be transparent about, Linus never did anything wrong
He made a stupid mistake better to have us all point then laugh at what it is then have it misrepresented
Free views, and uploading the whole thing instead of only "the part"? what bravity you talkin about?
Which balls? The best defense is for them to have an official version not cut to just make Linus look bad, plus they can chalk it up by acting "those who did nothing wrong don't fear".
Ouh it would have been shared on PLclip. It would have been all over
When I saw this live I had the same puzzled look that Luke did. I'm so glad that there was that moment of realization of how utterly fucked LMG would have been if Linus had stayed the course with the "hard R".
Can't wait till tommorow's WAN Show. Hopefully we get a on stream raise for our boy Luke!
I was trying to guess what the title would be referring to. That was SOOOOO much worse than I imagined. Thank you Luke for saving all the companies.
This is pure Linus and its why we love him. Easily the funniest video this year.
Imagine if Luke didn't correct him and just kept sitting there in disbelief
Not great, not terrible.
@poof I actually didn't get what he meant at first, but yea it was obvious he didn't mean the n word. With that eagerness to admit? It _couldn't_ be, lol. Something was up.
@Andy Brice And it's sad this isn't still the norm today. It's all about intent. I do see how it can still be disrespectful to insist on saying the m word though, there's no real reason. I don't think it's racist to just mention it (calling someone racist nowadays has gone so far away from the actual meaning of racism tbh), but yeah it's become more of a case just being socially decent. It's more about respect for the affected group.
There shouldn't be anything racist about uttering the word by itself, with no target or ill will, but it's just become one of those social understandings not worth going against the wave. It's more about feeling the room and knowing your social standing, than it is racism. Like I don't like the idea of fearing public execution for something I find so bening and silly, but I respect this instance.
Still baffles me how it would "ruin a company", especially with how some other company executives constantly get away with *actually* horrible sh't... But so goes the world I guess.
@k nection you should read some more comments and you will see most knew what he meant to be saying by many of them saying Luke saved him. If most people didn't understand that hard R is referred to the N word than people wouldn't be saying that. Use some context clues as well. Why would someone say hard R vs R word? Why would someone say -ape as hard R vs SA?
It would've spread to all the drama-PLcliprs in a very different way.
I love the solid minute Luke takes to process Linus saying he casually dropped hard Rs as a kid.
What I would give to hear Luke's internal monologue in that moment. Even I was thinking that was the end of LMG for a hot second so he and everyone else in the room had to have been in full panic mode
I jumped in right in the middle of this segment.... I was a little surprised to say the least! Luke handled this like a PRO!
@City Planner Plays That's funny, you're my friday night routine :D
@Yvon My Friday night routine! I watch this while I finish uploading the Saturday video 🙂
Hi CPP Nice to see you here!
dude, rewatching luke back when linus unleeashes all the chaos is jussttt awesome. love it.
Luke looked so defeated after Linus went "I used to say it" he was filling out employment resumes in his head
Linus: "Am I mistaken?"
Luke: "I THINK SO!!!!"
Oh my god that "I think so!" was so pronounced and it just simply conveyed a huge huge amount of weight off of his shoulders. He single-handedly saved the entirety LMG there.
@Kiseki Enthusiast - John Bird I think the "hard" portion is what threw everyone off as the way I have know it is R word = slur about mental disability and hard r slur = the racial one.
@Kiseki Enthusiast - John Bird i was thinking the same thing as Linus too lol
pretty much thought the "hard R" was what linus was thinking of i checked on google and nope different thing completely when did that change? Oh well.
The thing is if it didn't get called out it would have been worse. As an apology video would have seemed like saving face
I was listening to this on my drive to work, probably one of the funniest moments I've ever seen on WAN Show. Had to see Lukes face when the clip came into my feed
This is the greatest wan show moment of all time. Great work Luke
Luke is now eligible for his extreme tech upgrade now😂
I listened to audio only and was laughing. Watching Luke’s reaction was amazing!
5:07 You can see the palpable relief spreading throughout Luke there, man stopped breathing for a minute hahaha
This was one of the best moments in all of Linus history. Nothing has made me happier than the “Wait, what did he just say?!” that I went through. Love you Linus.
@Bradley Toccata No, he was happy when it turned out that Linus didn't know hard R stands for the n-word.
You were happy when you thought he meant the n-word?
I'm so glad i stayed through the boring bank talk to witness this absolute gem of a moment live
Good for y'all for posting this! Good on Luke for calling it out.
Dude, Luke is the kind of best friend I need...his reaction was valid, like WHAT 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯 but then he started to figure it out and ultimatley corrected the record. MEGA save. 🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘
Just goes to show Linus is just an innocent guy.
Be like Linus.
This made me love Linus even more xD
I understood Linus on his first “Hard R”. I was as shocked as Linus when Luke clarified.
Same, it's easy to confuse unconsciously
You could tell how dumbfounded Luke was for a bit here, thinking that Linus was admitting to something so out of character that he didn’t even know how to process it. He seemed simultaneously shocked, horrified, and disappointed in his friend, and didn’t even respond when Linus was like “we didn’t even think about it.”
@Arcanum Did you notice how what you said didn't actually refute any of his points?
It's really easy not to say the n word. Like you say, "it's just a word". You're not really giving up anything by choosing not to use it.
@Joe Homer what Americans don't understand is the difference between TALKING ABOUT a word (e.g. in an educational context about mistreatment and racism etc) and USING a word about someone.
@Joe Homer it’s just a word
@Arcanum I'm white. It isn't my place to get offended by the N word. But that word never needs to come out of my mouth. At no point in my life can I imagine saying it to be more important than guaranteeing I don't potentially make people uncomfortable.
And if a word I use ends up being offensive to somebody else down the line, I can scrap it from my vocabulary, apologise and move on. Lots of words in the English language, and more everyday.
Linus is too innocent for that 😂
I love the fact they just post this and own it, full credit to these guys
Linus' initial sincerity is absolutely hilarious.
I reacted just like Luke so I missed his reaction the first time 😂😂 Can't stop watching this clip.
This just goes to show how out of touch people our age can be sometimes.. Linus totally assumed it meant something it didn't and as someone the same age who hadn't heard the term before I 100% understood what he meant until Luke clarified and I was like Ooooh that makes more sense than what Linus was saying...
I never laughed harder in my entire life cause I totally was on Linus wave length with the r word and realizing that everyone else thought different killed me
Linus accidentally knocked his career off the counter, and Luke caught it before it shattered on the floor.
@ogon bio Pretty sure anyone can copy anyone's comment with impunity, just a matter of class.
Not even close.
Caught it with his foot
Nice R comment 👌😂
@Sendo427 Next their gonna start saying "Think of the childreeen"
When in reality the way to protect my children is to filter what they hear myself, for only a little while so we can focus on teaching some Principles. Rather that letting google raise my kids remotely via algorithm. Fucking nonsense
Lmfao I rewatched this clip from the ... "Hard R confusion"... Luke's face is just priceless haha. Poor guys really seeing the collapse of the company in his mind 😂
Well done Luke, you saved him right there!
I think that was the biggest roller coaster Linus ever brought us through
The moment Luke stopped nodding his head when he heard Linus saying that he used the hard R is priceless
I respect you all far more for posting this and just going with it.
Well it was live, people saw it anyway, might as well repost it to get a ton of views for the biggest takeaway of the stream.
This is the greatest clip in WAN Show history. Luke's reaction is priceless. And then his eyes go vacant as if he's contemplating new careers. Its not until it fully cycle's in his head that he realizes maybe Linus meant something else. LOL
I honestly have no idea what they were talking about...it was like a foreign language.
I appreciate that he made sure to verify Linus' intention before fully assuming what was meant.
4:20 - "welp, good thing I don't spend money, because my career is over"
4:25 - "wait..."
4:30 - "Did Linus just admit to being super racist, or is Linus being clueless again?"
It’s kinda like a kid saying his “new favorite word” and believes it means something else. It’s light hearted and a good cringe
This makes me wonder how many other people have gotten cancelled because of a misunderstanding who weren't lucky enough to have it resolved or clarified on the spot like this. If it can happen once, it can happen an infinite amount times and we'd never know.
Luke definitely earned a bonus, or at least a trip to the McDonald's ball pit and a happy meal
I love Luke's doubletake at "I'm not going to deny I used my fair share of hard Rs back in the day"
Luke had his entire career flash before his eyes 😂
In that moment, Luke's entire career flashed before his eyes. He was already formulating a fallback career.
I was crying of tears when I first saw this, greatest moment in Wan Show history
Luke just saved the company, give that man a raise
@Just A Hologram He's also back in LMG as the CTO
It doesn't matter how much money they give him, he'll still be just as cheap as he is now lol.
@Just A Hologram I'm not sure that's how their compensation works lol.
He's the head of floatplane he can pay himself whatever he wants
LOL, watching Luke's face was priceless. Luke needs to set up a tip jar, he would have doubled his take home last week.
This was truly amazing watching a second time around, knowing what Luke was thinking.
This brings a whole new level to drop tips; he almost dropped the entire company
I could hear Luke's voice go from ghostly to normal after asking. Like he was scared at first to question
This goes from "terrifying" to "oh I can laugh at this now" pretty fast
Luke’s non expression when linus was like “i dropped my fair share of hard r’s too’ was priceless. Its like he was too shocked to even say anything
He thought he knew Linus, but it was all a lie.
Luke out here smashing the most legendary QTE the internet has ever seen.
I had no idea what hard-r referred to, so I paused and googled it, and yeah I was pretty mind blown Linus was saying he casually used it without thought. Good Neo bullet-timing there Luke!
This is such an iconic clip, can’t believe they actually uploaded it
This was an amazing moment. Loved the third person terror
Luke; the safety net we all know Linus needs.
This is amazing, and hilarious.
Just imagine Linus running around NCIX, greeting everyone with "'sup, ******".
@Vladislav Donchev Competitive polka is for nerds, I grew up with Mongolian throat singing and an incredible amount of replays of Hava Nagila
As a non american, we used to casually say the hard r
@Sam Wallace i am 5931 (kilometers) from nearest part of US.
i used to listen all the n-word songs when i was younger :^)
and literally if u ever listened to rap, you have listened to nwords my guy no way around it.
@JDL337 yea I’m pre sure many in their youth used the n word, so I don’t get why he would get hate for saying he used it casually, my whole intermediate and high school was n word this n word that, from all races.
@Ryan Allen yes but dont use the n word
Linus almost dropped his career but Luke was the to catch it, give that man a raise!
I had the audio playing in the background while i was working the first time i watched this and as soon as linus said he uses to use the hard r you could just feel the tension, that caught me off guard so bad like damn bro you just openly cancelling yourself now 🤣🤣
I just about died when I saw this. Love you, Linus and team.
Its funny, because the whole time Linus was talking I knew what he meant, I just was also horrified that he didnt realise his mistake sooner 😂😂
poor Luke he really thought it was all over 😂
Linus apparently not only drops expensive GPUs, but also some hard Rs.
In all seriousness, he should buy Luke a new car or something for his next birthday. That was one heck of a save.
I think Linus should do the unthinkable: he should build Luke a gaming rig better than Linus's own.
@Fox Luke is cheap as hell, even with his position
Any big gesture would do, though they are already pretty much BFF, so I don't know how much you can improve the relationship in an immaterial sense.
Why does it need to be materialistic? I'm sure he can afford one easier than the vast majority of viewers
99% sure Luke would pick a '93 Civic over anything else
Funny enough, when Linus said "hard R" my mind totally went to what he was thinking and not what everyone else thought.
that absolute sheer panic on Luke's face is hilarious!
Luke is the reason I’ve started getting into this show
The way Luke just relaxed after Linus specified is words😂
Luke earned that troll moment for real!!!! XD lmao, Luke you did that!
Ten years of hard work flashed before Lukes eyes at 4:20. "its been a good run" he must have thought.
These guys time this purposely I swear 🤣
I'm just glad that Luke was able to prevent the Linus dropping the company instead of some silicons LOL
This has to be one of the most hilarious wan show moments ever xD
This will be remembered for years. Absolute GOLD
