      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.

    2. Dobby Morse

      Well, their reply was a letdown.

    3. Guitar Barrada

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

    4. ZeldaFreak

      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.

    5. Pankaj Singh

      The response from Pringles

    6. Ross Parlette

      Props for pronouncing the first R in FebRuary.

    7. insidious the fox

      Hi John live you!!

    8. Scott Andrew Hutchins

      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.

    9. A. Arnold

      They had already shown his whole body in a 1973 commercial

    10. Jada Perez

      So did they ever respond?

    11. Gleidston Filipe Santos Silva

      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.

      Some top notch stand up jokes :D

    14. John 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.

    15. destiny estrada

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

    16. Scott Allen

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

    17. Relax just be more tea

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

    18. Shae C

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

    19. Patrick Flanagan

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

    20. Jason Smithy

      John Oliver is the best

    21. Matthew Harris-Levesque

      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.

    22. Jonathan Ross

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

    23. D B

      any updates on this story yet?

    24. zombieowen

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

    25. Jorgen Sandstrom

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

    26. patrick hall

      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!

    27. MsLadyofshalotte

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

      1. Inigo Phentoya


    28. TheMetsGuy

      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!”

    29. bear6213

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

    33. joeno MRC

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

    34. tha Real Mike Zee

      They give this guy too much money 💰

    35. L

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

    36. Nishad Rawat

      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

    37. Valencio Diaz

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

    38. Abdul Basith

      And now they've completely changed the look of him

    39. Mana Asj

      I vote hermit pring

    40. Doi

      I would willingly watch ads before this show

    41. Christopher Dickerson

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

    42. Henry Tawnn

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

    43. WaywardGoddess

      Hard boiled Tom Selleck lol I'll never unsee that

    44. Travis // Dragonze

      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.

    45. Finn Nicholson-Crotty

      He Pringle He single And he ready to mingle

    46. pinguaina

      Do a video about the metric and the imperial system.

    47. Chris Jakubowski

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

    48. Liam Hunt

      Bold of to assume there is anything down there

    49. David Belen

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

    50. MCPunk55

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

    51. Mark Hall

      I don't know what he looks like from the bottom down but I do know this. That's one hell of a mustache


      Pringles=COVID. Consume at your own risk.

    53. Shimon Biton

      HE-MAN Pringles wins it for me

    54. Claudio Estevez

      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 FIblock.

    55. David K

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

    56. Avoir Joseph • 5 years ago

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

    57. Casper Jones

      5 minute viral pringles marketting campaign

    58. Emily K

      Hey, man- I pay for FIblock 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.

    59. J Abbott

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

    60. J. Bailey


    61. Harry Barodawala

      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

    62. Emma

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

    63. Steven Mohr

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

    64. YlMchannel

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

      1. Inigo Phentoya

        The released a video, actually.

    65. lateoclock

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

      1. Inigo Phentoya

        They released a video.

    66. John Noodles

      I really hope it's the hermit crab!

    67. Dirt Merchant

      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.""

    68. jv7x

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

    69. Purple Pockets

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

    70. Jose Boyer

      John is the man

    71. Nolan Short

      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

    72. the cellulon triptometer

      The TRUTH is still out there!

    73. Cynderelly lastname

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

    74. QueenieMouse

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

    75. tiny dancer

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

    76. marco vega

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

    77. Safer to be Anonymous

      The truth? The can was designed after his penis 😂

    78. Rachel Fox

      I just appreciate how much he prefers Daddy Pring. No need to say "no homo" sir, we completely understand.

    79. Deanya Schempp

      Here is the original Mr. Pringles. Not too difficult to find. :-)

    80. T Lindsay

      The amount of respect I have lost for your work after finding out you’re associated with the next for autism event is astronomical. If you can’t do the one google search it takes to listen to autistic voices on this matter, then I dont trust you to properly research your stories. Nothing about us, without us!

    81. jeaniebird

      What _would_ we DO without you, John??

    82. PatrickIamonfire

      I actually prefer Pringles. My favourites are cheese,pizza ( possibly the same ), sour cream, bbq and the original. They also don’t fill the packaging or tubes up with air at least where I’m from.

    83. that one guy with the voice

      Fun fact the reason why they are not chips is because They are made by basically taking those flakes in dried mash potatoes and making it into a chip shape. As this process uses less oil, pringles are on average healthier than chips

    84. Cody McCollum

      I had no idea about that crisps tidbit lol

    85. Harshit Nahata

      Just go to dude perfect's video ping pong trick shots where they get sponsored by Pringles and Julius Pringles makes an appearance , which I think is as accurate you're gonna get. 👍👍

    86. Jacob Thompson

      Do the right pring

    87. Brandon LM01

      I hate how intently I watched this! 😂

    88. juliet

      original Pringles tube has been used in Walmart as a wine glass by a woman in an electric wheel chair. Also Pringles comes in organic non gmo

    89. meedo gaming

      Very exlant

      Biracial People are like the Pringles Flavour Stack of People

    92. floramew

      My favorite thing about pringles is that their shape is a pretty complex/ specific mathematical thing, a... hyperboloid iirc? Bending down in the sides and up on the ends is pretty hard to replicate, as evidenced by the fact that none of the knockoff brands ever seem to actually manage it.

    93. TooSlowTube

      Julius Pringle weighs 400 pounds and suffers from type II diabetes. Prove me wrong.

    94. Fiona Lilly

      I always imagined him like the monopoly man

    95. Marie McMillan

      They actually did it. John Oliver is so awesome.

    96. Will Carpenter

      My homie is disabled and because Pringles are uniform shaped they're easier for him to eat.

    97. Wayne Bart

      John, I'm dying for an update to this Pringles Challenge

    98. the forbidden

      I thought they've revealed what it looked like when they gave him the new logo

    99. Chris Void

      Hey John, please do an episode on Planned Obsolescence

    100. Marty R

      This is almost as good as Mitch Hedberg's bit about Pringles. Almost.
