    That is bullshit! Glad to see the Bullshit Man is back.

  • June 13, 2012 at 12:09 am

    YKWBS: Books in series that aren’t numbered >.< That's total BS

    that mask give me the creeps. :p

    You know what’s bullshit? Apple products! You pay so much money for one then there’s a new one a year later that looks exactly the same but it’s somehow better! That really grinds my gears.

    • January 18, 2015 at 7:29 am

      You know what’s bullshit!? Apple haters. They do anything to claim with myth making lies like you but can’t accept the fact competition always loses or better yet, blame Apple like they did anything involved with others. Fyi new products are better because outside looks the same but inside is improved if you bother thinking about it, keep hurting yourself in confusion! That’s bull shit!

  • MegaMech

    June 13, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Umm… James, if you need donations to buy new tires. You can just ask…

  • June 13, 2012 at 12:18 am

    It’s not really necessary to have James in it but eh I laughed anyways 🙂

    Im glad to se the bullshit man again thats fuckin awesome.

  • candytooth

    Its scary how close I came to predicting the next YKWBS, I predicted then next one was going to be about speed bumps, figure that.

  • dreamdinner

    June 13, 2012 at 12:55 am

    that`s some one way bullshit

  • ChaosAngel

    June 13, 2012 at 1:12 am

    Awww yeah! Great to see ’em back!

  • June 13, 2012 at 1:18 am

    Nice black face.

  • Ralf

    Thanks a lot for keeping the bullshit man alive James, hope the bullshit does not end here :D.

  • elmerfudd5565469

    June 13, 2012 at 2:29 am

    Yesssss! Love these!

  • Rasite

    June 13, 2012 at 2:33 am

    Hah, what a nice comeback! That was hilarious! I see James has taken YKWBS to another direction, with being on camera and adding over the top humor to it. Not bad.

  • June 13, 2012 at 2:34 am

    fuckin awesome lol

  • Stylix

    June 13, 2012 at 2:36 am

    I always thought the concept was pretty stupid. If you go the wrong way then you get stuck, so you end up causing a bigger jam. Its like, lets not just punish the person who went the wrong way, lets also make an example of them and punish everyone around them by making them cause more traffic issues.

  • Dark Omega

    June 13, 2012 at 4:15 am

    Those devices are probably made by tire companies. That’s the real bullshit.

  • SomeFinnishDude

    June 13, 2012 at 4:40 am

    Thankfully I don’t think those are legal here as I’ve never actually seen one outside of American TV.

  • Paul Dower

    June 13, 2012 at 4:48 am

    Thats not bullshit, thats FUCKING BULLSHIT!!!

  • June 13, 2012 at 4:50 am

    You know what’s Bullshit? James taking so GOD DAMN long to put out another one. Of course I kid because I know he’s been busy and all that, but still–this should be episode 66 not 16. Great to see you back and a great rant right here, James. Welcome home and keep up the good work. : )

  • floridaboy

    June 13, 2012 at 5:03 am

    hell yeah, it’s James ! ! ! ! !

    I would like to see a bullshit video about concession stands.

    Is it $20 for a small popcorn now?

  • GodofFuriousStrong

    June 13, 2012 at 5:30 am

    Best one yet. Loved the face time and the drawings. Really brings this concept to life! This series is getting better, and I already got a little chuckle out of the others. The drawings were cool; Bullshit Man’s face looked like a brown Oscar the Grouch. Kinda fits 😀 What does The Bullshit Man think of when people won’t move aside on paths / sidewalks so you have to walk on the road, in mud and shit or pressed firmly against a wall? That’s Bullshit!

    …and remember guys, I am with you as you crunch opposents, and live like a wind rammer as you fuck.

  • doemaaan

    June 13, 2012 at 6:15 am

    lol, this was pretty funny.

  • Czab

    June 13, 2012 at 7:27 am

    Thank god we don’t have those in Finland. I think if someone would put something like that on his parking lot here, he would be in court instantly.

  • Entrenaturaleza

    June 13, 2012 at 7:40 am

    Glad to see Bullshit man again, and awesome art by Mike, hellyeah!

  • June 13, 2012 at 7:53 am

    I’ve never heard of that before. Is it a very recent thing? I haven’t lived in America for a few years now.

  • dhylton

    June 13, 2012 at 8:54 am

    You keep letting the idiots out there what’s BULLSHIT cuz if the bullshit man dont… who the hell will?

  • dhylton

    June 13, 2012 at 8:54 am

    edit: letting was mistyped… meant to say telling.. im an idiot. typing is bullshit man lol

  • kiskanak

    June 13, 2012 at 9:10 am

    Sweet, I love YKWBS, I’m glad it’s back!!! But I’m not a fan of the shit-faced man. I like my YKWBS anger to be delivered by voice and intonation, so the face is distracting.

  • JayEff

    June 13, 2012 at 9:33 am

    Wait, you guys really HAVE these in ameria ?!

  • shane77x

    June 13, 2012 at 9:52 am

    Man those things are fucking retarded. I fail to see how those things are even legal.

  • malice936

    June 13, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Good to see a new episode of this, and yeah they should at least have the common decency to say “oh yeah there’s shit to puncture your tires if you go the wrong way here.” Although I would bet money some dumbass somewhere had at least 1 set of those installed incorrectly and had 2 of them facing each other.

  • TheProfessor

    June 13, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    I’ve gotta disagree with this one. At least here in Brazil they are very useful. I’ve never seen them in the MIDDLE of parking lots but they are typically used to keep people from entering in the wrong entrance or driving on the wrong side of the road (which is common in Brazil).

    Mechanical arms/tolls are expensive to maintain and break easily, so this is a cheaper solution. Extreme? Yes. But say that after you’ve seen a Brazilian driver. No one respects any traffic laws and cops couldn’t care less. The only thing that keeps people in line is if they’d fuck up their car doing some stupid shit. Personally, I wish we had more…. then I wouldn’t have to constantly worry about a head-on collision from some asshole who decided to pass a car in the opposing lane.

  • June 13, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    I’m glad to see this is not about DVD cases!

  • June 13, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    Mr Bullshit, do you have to be so fucking angry all the time?, i,m scared 🙁

  • frostare

    June 13, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    I see that your Youtube videos now have subtitles, at least in spanish. I hope it’s neutral spanish but if not, hell at least they’re there! I must congratulate and thank you and the guy who makes them, not that I couldn’t understand your vids before but this will attract a larger audience.

  • June 13, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Wow…is this recorded with your new camera James?

    Cause the quality when I switched to HD was really fucking good!

  • Demonhub

    June 13, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Funny video but it was the voice was not in sync with the mouth so thanks James for the voice and probably Mike for the shit face 😀

  • Steven

    June 13, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    everything but spring loaded memory card readers on cell phones are bullshit. The spring loaded ones are not new i know they were on the first psp 100s wich came out over 5 years ago. 8ut i get a brand new smart phone in 2012, and have to take the back off remove the battery and waste 5 mins of my life tryning to get this flimsy piece of aluminum thats barely attached to my phone to take my memory card. And it breaks so i know just have a folded up piece of paper holding my memory in my phone. why not just have a port on the side of my phone that i can put the card in does that just make it to esay. or better yet sience the phone came with a 4 gig card why not just make a phone with that much memory n take the memory card out of the question. This i such fucking bullshit. please make a bs video about this

  • SparcMan

    June 13, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    Can you do a rant on power soap dispensers? I mean WTF?! After you touch a soap dispenser, what’s the next thing you do? You WASH your FUCKING HANDS!! It doesn’t make a difference if the soap dispenser is covered in dogshit, your hands will still be clean afterwards. Now powered faucets and towel dispensers make some sense because otherwise, you’d be touching them after washing your hands.

  • harryj1986

    June 13, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    Yes!! Bullshit is back

  • Jessyfaulkner

    June 14, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Or better yet, how about the water faucets themselves! You wave your hands under it to trigger the water to come on and it doesn’t always work. When it does, it runs for a short time and your hands are still soapy and you have to do it again until you’re finished rinsing. Or how about the ones you have to HOLD to keep on! You can only rinse one hand at a time because you have to twist the handle with the other hand and if you let go, it turns off. THAT is bullshit and is more complicated than it needs to be

  • BrandeX

    June 14, 2012 at 12:59 am

    Someone got their tires popped recently….

  • June 14, 2012 at 1:52 am

    Ha! Sounds like James or someone may have gotten their tires shredded out in California! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSocSgw0x3E

  • Darth_Revan

    June 14, 2012 at 4:25 am

    This episode was terrible. It felt like if he was reading it from paper and I don’t like the appearance of the Bullshit man.

  • Steven

    June 14, 2012 at 5:12 am

    @ Darth_raven this episode was probably rushed to get something new on the site with james in it. im not really a fan of the bs man either. But i bet if we have patients things will improve back to the quality weve grown to expect. (I also prefer the pure voiceover bs man method used on the episodes before this one, but this one was not terrible)

  • Steven

    June 14, 2012 at 5:30 am

    To clarify when i say im not a fan of the bullshit man i mean the costume not the character.

  • Prizm

    June 14, 2012 at 7:34 am

    I thought the Nerd would’ve liked those spikes. I think it’s great. They don’t fuck around. You drive over here, you WILL be punished. No bullshit fines or whatever, you WILL pay a price for your disobedience!

  • greedo

    June 14, 2012 at 10:52 am

    You know what’s [email protected]#[email protected]#@#[email protected]? The BS man himself. I don’t like him. His eyes are too close together, or something. I liked YKWB better when it was just a disembodied voice. I honestly thought that it was James being himself. Oh, well, don’t want to take away from the video. Great rant, James!

  • FinalplayerRyu

    June 14, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    Never had to deal with this BS, i think there arent any in Austria or at least i have never seen them.

  • June 14, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    I guess youre right those things if they sale those on stores in a big country like yours might be really dangerous,considering the fact that somebody sould consider this something funny and try to pull a prank or something.Those i think used them in some parking lots im not sure though whats the reasons,maybe for the drivers not to try to get out from the entrance again,or for stoping someone that will try to steal your venicle.Who knows but to sell those on stores like that,thats freaking stinks or you can tell it sting!

  • xcan

    June 14, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    i hate to sound like a troll, but i don’t like this video
    for starters the thing that pisses him off isn’t even that bad i mean come on, don’t get me wrong i hate traffic spikes( Satan’s demonic plans) but come on remember the pennies one i love that one and he had a least 5 reason why it was ass, nut in this one he keeps admiting the same problem.

  • June 14, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    I think it makes sense, say, at the gate of a military base (I’ve seen them at air force bases, so I assume they’re at others). In a regular parking lot, though, it does seem like overkill.

  • creecreehoneybee

    June 14, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    Did Mike do all the illustration? Those are hilarious!

  • Aaron1375

  • CStyles

    June 14, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    Some toll booths have those spikes for anyone dumb enough to go in reverse because he pulled up too far past the window or something. Imagine the rage you would have if you were on a road trip, you’re waiting for your turn to pay the toll, and the fucker in front of you busts his tires, and now you gotta wait for him to somehow get his heap out of the way.

  • SilverDragon

    June 14, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    I love how the bear is holding the Team Fortress 2 Pyro flamethrower. Nice easter egg Mike.
    And BTW Bullshit Man, move to Canada. We don’t have parking spikes nor paying toilets. We’ll even soon stop making pennies!

  • Richter6

    June 14, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    These are all over in L.A. hahahahahaha James did you get your tires popped or pretty damn close when you were here? And from someone who sees them daily…….it is bullshit!

  • June 14, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    You know what’s bullshit? The lack of Cinemassacre content the past few weeks.

  • SilentSquall

    June 14, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    @ BrendeX

    Lmao, I was thinking the exact thing.
    But its true, having those in areas where they don’t need THAT much security is ridiculous… They should at least have a sign as a warning before hand….

  • binaryfruit

    June 14, 2012 at 11:46 pm


    Even worse are those damn sinks that you have to press the faucet for water to come out. Those are total crap. You just end up having one hand sparkling clean and the other covered in god knows what disease from pumping the faucet over and over, and then, if you used soap, the faucet gets covered in it and your hand slips off. That’s bullshit!

  • elcalvo

    June 15, 2012 at 2:20 am

    Mike went overboard with the illustrations. A little more live action on the mix would have worked better.

  • Nordel

    June 15, 2012 at 4:07 am

    Man, Cinemassacre has the worst fucking fans ever. Finally, after months of no James, some new content!. And all you people can do is nitpick about how awful it is. God, if you hate it so much, why do you keep coming back? It’s your fucking web traffic that is keeping this place going, retards.

    • January 18, 2015 at 7:14 am

      I got to admit, as much as I loved his work, he defended his excuses for his iTunes blame gimmick, like the updating, he didn’t check for the new version in making sure it was a good idea, or letting every bit of it load things when he obviously could’ve stopped it. In other words, he’s just being too lazy to fix the problems he thought it was. Now that’s bull shit!

  • Wildcat19828

    June 15, 2012 at 9:15 am

    I have one for you James… How about those drains that are on the top portion of the tub. There is no sense of them being there, because even if your tub overflows it will not drain the water for you. The only time it drains the water is when you lay in the tub, and that is the worse time to drain the water! Keep that one in your thoughts good sir!



  • June 15, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    They should make a driveway where you run over the spikes the correct way, then you have to drive over more spikes, but the spikes are reversed so they will puncture your tires. If you back up, then you puncture your back tires. Therefore, it’s your choice whether you puncture your front or back tires to leave the parking lot.

  • June 15, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    Please make a video about public restroom faucets! Wal-Mart has the worst. You go in there and they have super low faucets with really undeep sinks so you can barely fit your hand underneath it. And when you do stick your hand underneath the faucet, it doesn’t work. And when you get it to work, you can’t move your hand or the water stops. So you have to cram both of your hands under the faucet, but can’t move one so you can’t even scrub your hands.

    And at Meijer, you can’t control the water temperatiure, so you always get scolding hot water. Kills germs? Yes. Turns your hands red? Yes. And other stores only give you freezing cold water so apparently you will build up a bacteria resistance and die.

    And other places, you have to touch the faucet so it is impossible to wash more than one hand at a time, making it impossible to scrube your hands.

    And at other places, you have to have your body in front of a sensor to turn the water on, so if you move too close to the faucet the water turns off, meaning you have to have really long arms in order to reach the water.

    People who desiigned these and people who ordreed these for their public restrooms are complete morons.

    June 15, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    Funny vid.. I hate those suns of bitches!Even Driving over them the right direction is scary. I think of your “ykwb” vids every time I watch a youtube vid that has really loud techno music accompanying it.. like I want to hear that when I’m watching a do it yourself brakejob on a 92 accord!!

  • EmSeeSquared

    June 15, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    LOL, personally i find the shit mask to be a riot. I cracked up just at the beginning of the video, the mask combined with his performance in it XD. Tho i find it funny that everyone’s calling him the BS Man or Bullshit Man. I know he once referred to himself as such in a previous installment, but personally, i can’t help but feel the character should be called “Shithead” XD

  • OutaTime

  • Justin Hall

    June 16, 2012 at 1:28 am

    I get the strange feeling that in Hollywood James’ tires suddenly burst followed by a 10 minute swearing session and an overpriced towing bill sometime within the last couple of months.

  • Steven

    June 16, 2012 at 6:16 am

    @whatthefuckever. I highly doubt you have any idea wtf your talking about/ aside from that i had no idea sinks pissed people off so much, im gunna go punch 1 in the face right now for you guys

    June 16, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    Wow, I didn’t expect this! A surprise return of the Bullshit Man! Good stuff. Although, I have to admit I’ve never seen these. Well, at least not in a parking lot. I’ve seen them in conjunction with the traffic gates, though. If you try to go the wrong direction you get your tires flattened. Either way, I’d say they are overkill in both circumstances!

  • Sonic

    June 16, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    @whatthefuckever Wow you fucking asshole you don’t even know what the hell your talking about goddamn idiot.
    Gtfo of cinemassacre then.

    Those spikes don’t exist here in Brazil. I’ve never seen one, except in movies!

  • Poonerang

    June 17, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    Speaking of parking lots; you know what else is bullshit? Fat people in handicap parking. You’d think they could lose a little weight by walking a further distance to the store, so that being said, they should have to park in the back. That’s bullshit.

  • Steven

    June 17, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    @poonerang or when you see them rideing those little scooters around, its like hhhmm i wonder why your so fat let me guess. slow metabolism, bad thyroid. you couldent just be lazy there must be some other excuse that dosent requier you to take any responsibilty.

  • Peron

    June 18, 2012 at 6:34 am

  • Strazdas

    June 23, 2012 at 8:28 am

    Im glad we got no spikes here. that would mean you would have a choice of either a) drive though spikes and puncture tires or b) ram some idiots vehicle because he decided to park in the middle of the way because hes lazy to wakl 5 meters

    I must say that this one looks like highly illegal.. Isn’t there a law against putting something on the road that causes accidents?? Well there should be..
    (In Finland there is a law – and I have never seen anything like on this video.)
