[Dramatic voiceover over footage from end of the previous video:] At the very end of the last episode of Wheezy Waiter, Wheezy accidentally blew up his apartment. And now for the thrilling conclusion of... [Title appears on screen as voiceover says it] Wheezy Waiter accidentally blew up his apartment.... oopsies.
[Wheezy Waiter beard intro]
[Drilling and hammering noise as four quadrants of screen appear and join together.]
[slides in/singing rug]
Well, that resolved itself quickly. Hey beardlovers. So today I found this art... [The upper lefthand quadrant of the screen starts to detach and drift away] Whoa, whoa, whoa. [pulls out some scotch tape and grabs that quadrant of the screen and brings it back] There we go.
So today I found this art... ah, it's so hot in here. Just a moment.
[Stands in front of the fan in the window, holding his shirt out so the fan blows under it.] Ahhhhh. [Now facing the other way, holds out the back of his shirt.] Ahhh. [Facing the fan again] Unzip... [appears to be unzipping his pants] Ahhh. I can do this. You know why? Because this is a free country and this is a free apartment.
[A clone enters from the kitchen:] All done with the toilet. Can I take a break now?
[Craig:] Sweep the *ding*ing floor!
[Clone turns around and goes back into the kitchen]
[Craig is sitting in front of camera again] So I found this article on the... huh... huh... huh... huh... [breathes in and out rapidly in extreme closeup. Takes a puff on his inhaler. Exhales.] ... Huffington Post. Yes, I read the Huffington Post sometimes because I'm a dirty pinko communist liberal. Mostly for the free vodka at the meetings. [talks in Russian accent] Is now good vodka drink now go chug chug Bolshevik. Gorbachev.
Just an FYI [holds up inhaler]... this is Advair. It's not a Proventil inhaler. You use it once and it lasts 12 hours.
The headline of the article was [shows article] "How to Become Famous Overnight." And I was like, whaaaat?!!
It was written by Robert Pagliarini. More like Robert Pag-LIAR-ini. Ohhhhhhhhhh!
See that? See what I did? Words. I use 'em.
But as I looked at the words under the headline, I believe that portion is called the article, I realized that headline was just drawing people in. Everybody wants to be famous overnight. But if it were easy to become famous overnight, then nobody would be famous. Except for the people that didn't become famous overnight. They would be rare. And more special. And therefore more famous.
Turns out the article is actually about someone who found success because they stopped aspiring and started creating. It goes on to talk about this singer girl called Christina Perri who made YouTube videos for four years and then found a career as a singer.... or something. Whatever. I didn't read it. I just want to hear myself talk.
I often get a question about how someone can get more subscribers or how I got so many subscribers. I think the best answer I can give and the thing I'm most proud of is right up there. [points upwards] It should say 350 videos if this is the latest video I uploaded. It might say 349 if YouTube didn't update it yet. The only way you're gonna get good at something is if you do it. The only way people can see what you do is if you do it. So just... [Box that says "Censored" pops up over Craig's mouth as his mouth continues moving. In voiceover he says] I'm not saying that until Nike pays me.
Sure, it's possible to make 200 terrible videos but 200 is better than none. And it's possible to make 500 brilliant videos that no one's watching. But in that case, you might want to make sure they're not set on Private.
When I made my 100th video, I had 32 subscribers on YouTube. These things take time. And work. [points upwards again]
Just create something. Even if it might be crap. You don't know how people are gonna react. Like dancing in the middle of the road in a hot dog costume spinning a globe on your head and quoting Shakespeare.
[Craig, in the middle of the road, spinning a globe on his head, and wearing a hot dog suit:] Thou art the villain.
Actually that's pretty awesome.
Unfortunately, I don't care about YouTube success. My true calling is professional handstanding. Double unfortunate is that I suck at it. But this is my third try so I'm gonna keep doing it until I get better. [gets up and walks towards wall] A lot of you said I need to keep my hands further away from the wall. Alright. And these two comments [shows comments by ThyBoyd and XPogoZac] say I need to step into the handstand and stick my leg out or something. Alright, let's give it a try. This might be the point at which I hurt myself. [attempts a handstand] That didn't work. [attempts another one, this time more successfully.] Alright. Was that better form?

[Wheezy Waiter sunglasses outro]
[Shows tweet from Craig: better question, how can you get to the point where you are making a living doing what you love?]
[Annotation on screen: music by my band, Driftless Pony Club. link in the doobly-doo]
[From Loisunpublished: get so good at doing what you love that people will pay you to do it.]
[From BradTNW: You have to be willing to walk in the poo for a while to get where you want to go.]
[From snooge: just a guess. Combo of creativity, perseverance, circumstance, and luck.]
[From justtom: You have to rub the Old Spice Guy's head and make a wish]
[speaking in Russian accent:] Now good Vodka drink go now chug chug Bolshevik [laughs]
The beginning of this video relates to the end of the previous day's video, Volcanic Lightning!.
