    I agree – wire hangers are bullshit – good for stealing cars with though, apparently

  • July 4, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Now this was a great [Bullshit] episode! The last one was the weakest, and this one I would say is the strongest because everyone knows how bad wire hangers are. Can’t wait to see the next one. : )

    I have honestly never had a problem with wire hangers. I actually even hang my Jeans on them with no problem. They aren’t special either just cheap one from wall mart. So I call bullshit on this bullshit episode. Seems to be a fair amount of Dramatic leniency but its all for the sake of entertainment, so no worry’s

    You know what’s bullshit? this springboard player, it sucks, last 5 videos uploaded here are unwatchable, Ive posted on them all, do you guys hate your fans or something?
    does it costs money to upload the vids also on youtube?

  • pcgamer176

    July 4, 2012 at 1:43 am

    Yeah, wire hangers are bullshit but they have other uses, like all of the wire hangers I have I never use for actually hanging things, its always for when I need something thin to get into a place that I couldnt normally put anything. Just go to the local supermarket and they should have a packs of like 10 plastic hangers. simple and effective.

  • Stylix

    July 4, 2012 at 2:08 am

    Wire hangers come in handy sometimes for other uses, but of course whenever I end up needing one for purposes other than hanging things, I can either only find a plastic one or one of those ungodly strong wire hangers that usually snaps apart before it bends.

    Also, I never really understood the point of hanging up tee-shirts. To each his own, but they always seem to get that puckered out dimple on the shoulders when they are on hangers for too long.

    They are great to break into your car when you locked your keys inside! Other than that, they suck.

    @ urineg…try using a different browser…if you don’t have google chrome, download it and try it…if you don’t have mozilla firefox, dl it and try…if those don’t work, try downloading safari…one of them might make you download and install the correct plug-in you need.

    I likes the plastic ones. More sturdy and can hold up my high school letterman cause it’s the heaviest thing i own that has to be hung up.

    I use them as material for building puppets. One day I found I could no longer find any store where I could purchase them. I was like, “That’s BUUUUUULSHIIIIT!!!!”

    That’s why I use either plastic or wooden hangers. To quote a classic: “You can’t beat wood!”

  • RocketeerRaccoon

    July 4, 2012 at 6:23 am

    Wire Hangers? Never heard of those clothe hangers, in fact why do you use them to begin with? Plastic or wooden hangers are much better.

  • clockers118

    I believe we have six more of these bullshit videos coming. So sorry goldenAxe dude, we won’t ever see an avgn episode again.Oh yeah and there’s also Board James. Like I said what is bullshit is James wasting his time making these kind of videos. It takes away from making an avgn episode. but it is his site so he decides in the end. This is the last time I will speak on this.And to any motherfuckin fanboy who responds to this, How is that golden statue you have of James doing, Is it polished or spitshined and do you rub his golden balls before you go to bed.

  • Jel-K

    July 4, 2012 at 9:35 am

    Funny one! good to see James makes small videos for us because i know what it is to make a movie: you don’t want to do anything else until it’s done. Unfortunately , some young ‘fans’ don’t understand it.


    July 4, 2012 at 10:12 am

    You know what else is bullshit trying to find a place to pack those fuck nuts when your moving….. better yet trying to unpack them when they are all tangled up and shit. on second thought moving in general is just a pain in my ass, because when you think your done you still have the little annoying odds and ends you try to cram into one fucking box just so you don’t have to make two trips!

    July 4, 2012 at 10:43 am

    Gotta say I enjoyed this one, it was really good! I am also one who doesn’t like the bullshit-mask too much, so this style of video did really appease me. It’s more like the “older” bullshits, and I like that.

    Also, while Mike is good at reviewing video games, please James, do not even think about giving that up! I am looking forward to your movie as much as the next guy, but I am even more looking forward to another of your AVGN episodes.

    Nobody does it quite like you.

  • July 4, 2012 at 10:59 am

    Two words – Plastic Hangers…you have some in the back of your closet James. But yeah wire hangers suck…Im OCD though so I always color coordinate my hangers with my shirts. I go nuts if I have a black shirt on a yellow hanger…weird right?

    If you have time to do You know whats bullshit it probably means you have time to make a Avgn episode.

    Just buy plastic hangers. You can get like 10 for a dollar, no bullshit!

  • AedanClarke

    July 4, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    1. I think James is a Christian, bro.
    2. YKWBS is about little things that are a massive annoyance. Like… wire hangars, iTunes, too much cream cheese, people putting their Christmas decorations up way too damn early and being late to take them down, etc.

    Religion is not a little thing.

  • AedanClarke

    July 4, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    @Everyone bitching about no AVGN
    Oh, God, shut the FUCK UP. Sometimes, I wish he’d just cancel AVGN just so everyone would stop whining about him doing anything different. Look, James’ life ambition isn’t to make AVGN videos until he dies and if he doesn’t feel like doing an episode at the moment because, oh, HE’S MAKING AN AVGN MOVIE, then that’s his damn decision.

    So, with that said, be satisfied that there’s content on the site at ALL now that he’s making the movie and be patient. The man works fast, but he can’t do everything. “Good things come to those who wait.”

  • July 4, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    Wire hangers are handy. You can use them for all sorts of things like unclogging drains, or unlocking a car door. In a pinch you can use them as a welding rod if you don’t have electrodes available.

  • July 4, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    For some reason, I never seemed to have this problem with wire hangers. Maybe it’s because I use the old copper color ones. They just don’t make them like they used to.

  • Czab

    July 4, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    Why use wire hangers at all? There are some cheap plastic ones that work just fine.

  • ittheclown

    July 4, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    I love my golden statue of james I rub his balls and suck his dick every night! Wow crying about there not being avgn episodes while he is off making a cunt mother fucking MOVIE ! An AVGN movie is bigger than christmas to me dont worry little boys give him time to make a fucking movie and I am sure you will see more avgn episodes if the big movie is not enough for you.

  • TheProfessor

    July 4, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    You know what’s bullshit? Pissing and moaning about no new AVGN episodes when the guy is making a movie. And to those who thinks if he has time to make “bullshit” then he has time for AVGN, you know nothing about video making.

    An avgn episode can take days to make, while one of these bullshit episodes can take just a few hours. The man has got to make a living while he’s out working on bigger projects and putting out these smaller/easier videos for now keeps views, site visits, and revenue up until those bigger projects are finished.

    It’s not about being a “fanboy”, it’s about reality of the situation. So grow the fuck up.

  • July 4, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    I don’t have wire hangers in my closet. I only have plastic and wooden ones. The wooden ones are those that clamp your clothes. Wire hangers are bullshit!

  • angryrider

    July 4, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    I don’t have any wire hangers in my home, all of ’em are sturdy plastic heavy ones that I get from the 99c store. The only time you’ll ever need wire hangers is when you need to build an HD antenna.

  • rronak95

    July 4, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    although they suck at hanging clothes, they make great lockpicks

  • Shellster04

    July 4, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    Wire hangers do suck. Whenever I get them from the dry cleaners, I throw them right in the trash. If you do want to keep your wire hangers, they can be cut and made to hang your sandals and shoes. (tutorial—->http://www.saifou.com/entry/6939.html)

    who the fuck uses wire hangers anymore? use the plastic ones. they’ll never bend or break.

  • Maddy

    July 4, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    No…wire… hangers….EVAAARRR!!! That scene scared the shit out me when I saw that movie. But Ms. Crawford was right. Wire coat hangers are useless at hanging clothes. However, you can use them to retrieve things in hard to reach places, like if you drop your keys down a grate in the street or something. If you can actually find one. I haven’t seen a wire hanger for years.

    Even cheap plastic ones are infinitely superior, but they do break. It takes years but eventually they snap.

  • GameSeeker

    July 4, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Have you ever thought of making good use of the wires? maybe making plush toys pose or maybe use them to wrap up around your plugs and AC adapters.

  • NoisyPanther

    July 4, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    Wire hangers are fucking bullshit. They’re good for nothing bullshit. I know they’re cheap, but wooden hangers and plastic hangers aren’t that much more expensive, and they work so much better. I used to make-believe that wire hangers were bows and arrows.

    Also, I love the way this episode was presented. We got to see the Bullshit Man ask us what’s bullshit, and then, while he was explaining what was bullshit, we saw the video in full with a narration. I know this is only my opinion, but I’m allowed to voice it so I’m voicing it.

    @rronak95 I’m guessing you haven’t ever tried to use a wire hanger for lock picking. If you had you would know that they are way too fucking big to fit in the lock. They make shitty lock picks.

    Wire hangers are good for lots of things… getting into your car when you lock the keys in it, forming a temporary electrical collection that you can solder to, scratching your back, unclogging toilets (though not with the same one you scratched your back with), reaching hard to reach objects, using as forming wire to temporarily fix faulty handles and latches… They can do almost anything… Except hang clothes.

  • Thunderchief1998

    July 5, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    If the clothing store lets you, keep the show hangers. I love those, they NEVER break unless you try. Hard. And they hold clothes like a champ.

    I don’t even see a pro for wire hangers, they might as well be marketed as “Wire Multi-Tool”, that is all they are good for. Only the cheapness makes them viable as hangers

  • frostare

    July 5, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    For clothes I use the plastic ones I have one that lets you hang FOUR pieces of clothing. Use the wire ones as antennas

  • July 6, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    you can’t use wire hangers as rabbit ear antennas anymore. TV has gone all digital. the tuners available for sale….even those don’t work. you MUST pay for cable or premium TV to watch TV today. this is why i don’t have a TV and just use internet, youtube, hulu, and sites like cinemassacre for my free entertainment.

    wow… wire hangers must suck in the USA… those look positively awful!

    while I’ll admit I haven’t had any wire hangers in some time (so things may have changed) the ones we used to get in the UK were pretty tough and could hang most any items with the exception of heavier items like jeans without even so much as bending a little… even trying to unravel and straighten our wire hangers out (for instance if you were looking to use one for another purpose as described in many of the previous posts) took quite a bit of effort to do properly

    having said, that not many of our wire hangers back then (at least the ones I keps obtaining) were covered with anything like yours appear to be… most of the ones I had were just a thick piece of wire… maybe, rather than making them so bulky they just use thinner wires in yours??

    I agree though… if performing like in the video… complete bullshit!

    Interesting… As soon as I saw the title “Wire hangers” I thought that “maybe you should get a similar hanger like that nazi leader from The Raiders of the Lost Ark had”. I was extremely surprised when you actually mentioned that same thing in the video yourself.
