Smiley the Smile : "Did you kill your mom?" "Yes." "So is she dead?" "Yes." "Did she leave behind a corpse?"

Emirichu : I keep switching between being incredibly uncomfortable from Phil's terrible questions and ugly-laughing from your commentary, this was a wild ride.

Conscious Robot : My God that's a creepy kid. The dead look in his eyes and demonic voice are just disturbing.

Mike Custalow : Please tell me that I'm not the only one who "placed my hand for validation"......

GrayEruanna : You look like what DrPhil would look like if he wasn’t born over 40

Sloth Dive : "Hey man, hit me in the arm as hard as you hit your mom with that sledgehammer"

MrSuckySucky : You grinding your mustache on the mic gave me a stiffy.

MultiWerewolf11 : There was actually a point to it: The whole point was to show the mannerisms of someone who’s not mentally aware. In another episode/clip Philly Slick reviews the interview HIMSELF and analyzes the behaviors of the guy. He explains why the dude laughs, why he nods weirdly, why he talks that way, as well as why Dr. Slick himself is prodding with the questions.

stxrfish : Now "I think Dr Phil just sorta squeeshed out of his mom's uterus bald and sweaty with placenta dripping from his stash wanting to help America's youth" is my new favorite sentence. Thank you.

AmyOverby : when you rubbed your mustache on that mic I unsubscribed immediately. it's been a fun few years but that was the last straw for me. goodbye.

Chris Kogos : Keep making these this was entertaining!

Luff : Hes trying to make him relive the moment to read how much sympathy he has about the situation. Psychologists do this to see if they may be insane. Hes just trying to read him.

SweetIvory 1203 : When you started play congratulations 😂😂😂

Lizzie Mich : The questions are meant to trigger a reaction from the boy by making him intensely remember the situation, so he can be observed to see if he's disasoiciating, enjoying the memories, becoming upset, not feeling etc. The reaction would be able to lead to a diagnosis. It should be done by an actual phycologist though, in an isolated room, and not on national television, or the results are fairly useless.

Chris Ray Gun : You are great at this, and you should absolutely do this more.

FannyPackZack : you look like dr phil with hair

Clifford Bowe : The reveal of the orange shorts was truly amazing

Nicklas Wallen : you taped a mic ... to a mic?

Mr Stream Manager : Place your hand here for #sledgehammermurder

Lukey Firsty : When you’re so frustrated you play the chorus to Congratulations by Post Malone

Scott Short : I think my boi phill has some, uh.... weird fetishes

Mr.Official 8D Audio : He's a phycologist, the questions may seem stupid but the answers he's getting are way more important than you think, he's getting into this boys head, this is what we do to find out more about killers to later on detect deceiving members of a different case.

Dylan Stewart : While I can appreciate the comedic take you brought to the video (for real you are hilarious), I hope in seriousness you can see that you were framing the interview in an incorrect context. You seemed to be under the impression that the interview was journalistic, when that's not Dr. Phil's profession; he's a psychologist. The guy had already been arrested and tried in a court of law and convicted, so all of the journalistic approach that Dr. Phil could have done would have just been redundant as the public already has access to the facts presented. His job is to delve into someones psyche, place himself within the mind of the subject, walking through the thoughts and reasoning of a person, in order to gain some sort of insight into what things seemed to be the most causal to bringing about an action or behavior of an individual; something that can be extremely uncomfortable in a case such as this when you are dealing with a clearly psychopathic person, but I believe still has some amount of value as far as how we understand the mind. Knowing the premeditation that occurs before someone commits an act of such brutality needs to be examined, and it's thanks to those who have had the proper training and gifted ability to be able to analyze the minds of killers such as these, and have the stomach for it, that we know as much as we do today about the human psyche. Of course it's going to be uncomfortable, we have never contemplated murder of our mother and took steps to carry it out; all the questions seem to be irrelevant to us because we aren't in their world. TL;DR I think you are being a bit disingenuous or slightly ignorant about the purpose of the interview, the man was found guilty, we didn't need Dr. Phil to go over, extract a confession, then tell him what he did was wrong. All that's been done already in court. Dr. Phil is a psychologist, not a journalist, so I would not expect the interview to be journalistic

WESLEY ROLLINS : This isn't a normal interview.. dr Phil is trying to find what was going through the head of a guy who killed his own mother... This requires really precise and specific questions to know how he thinks, not how he goes about his daily life.

Justin : I actually high-fived and fist-bumped the screen. Really enjoyed this content, Gus. Hope you make more like this. I don’t think you’re copying anyone’s style with this sort of reactionary content (like H3H3), I thought it was original and funny because they were your thoughts. That mustache mic-rub and keyboard parts were particularly good stuff lol

BucketDwarf : I’m sorry but I actually high fived the screen...

Fanny Evelina : how have i just found you?? this is the funniest shit I’ve watched in so long

KamiNoBaka : I really don't see anything wrong with this interview. He's trying to get to the kid's emotions and get him to open up about the event. These questions are pretty normal for that purpose. This is exactly what I'd expect from a clinical psychologist like Dr. Phil conducting an interview. Remember, he's not a journalist. These criticisms would be valid if he were. As it is, we're basically watching an attempt at a therapy session here.

DRAWLIN : you look like a 20 year old dr phill

WoollyOne : _plays Post Malone - Congratulations on electric piano in discomfort_

Hustle : It does sound pretty stupid on the surface, but you have to realize he is dealing with a psychopath. Most of these questions are psychological questions, they seem common on the surface, but have a deeper reason for their use than our first impressions.

Daaraofthegesert : As cringey as this looks this is really how psych interviews are. They’re even more painful to do lmao

JoueurZero : 8:41 Careful now you're pulling a Dave Chappelle over here

Nadie ҉ : You just taped a mic to a mic

Veridian : Gus needs to make more videos like this, this was golden

Gabriel Walsh : who else high fived him

John Smith : Brofist! Of course 100% ironic fist action, not serious. 👊👊👊

The End : #sledgehammermurder

Ghost : "Hit me on the arm as hard as you killed your mom with the sledgehammer" is somehow THE FUNNIEST THING ive heard in days i can not stop replaying that part

Tyron : Gus were you playing congratulations by posty when he asked what the sound was?

Julianna Kopa : Who else placed their hand there for validation?

Giant Z : I can be your sledgehammer...

Nami : Not that I like Dr Phil but he's a professional; he knows what he's doing with this interview. It's actually quite dumb for this guy to think he knows better than the psychologist with a phd. Even I can see these questions aren't posed for a proper interview for journalistic purposes. As a psychologist Dr Phils doing his job and using the interview to delve into the killers psyche. Since he seems like a true psychopath, the questions are posed to make him relive the murder and psychoanalyze his answers and reactions to determine possible underlying motivations and pathologies

Michael Jae : 6:43 banging on the piano turns into Post Malone's _Congratulations_ and it's low key fire, Im impressed

sam_ : 9 Minutes in and I just realized he isn't actually using the mic.

a7 jah : i greatly enjoy your personality! gus, youre hilarious man!

Isabella Rae : WHY WOULDN’T YOU ASK *WHY?* (This video was great)

Bree Metallica : This is the most beautiful video I have ever watched

Positively Udo : Gus, you look like you might drive an unmarked white van...
