      1. Plant

        What would you do on a deserted island? What extra person would you bring?

      2. valsol

        shane which part of little women (the movie) did u start crying at this is important

      3. Grace Linnea

        Which rap song would you rather use against the water sprites, Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice or Fancy by Iggy Azalea?

      4. Yazmine Yacub

        whenever i need to do scottish accents i just always say it how i think shrek would say it and i think you guys should try it too!!

      5. Candy Smithey


    2. Shyam Yadav

      Theory 3 ???

    3. Caroline Carruthers

      It was definitely the storm mermaids. 😉

    4. Lisa3975

      Have you guys heard about the Lost Boys of Pickering? It's gone unsolved for decades.

    5. Colby Strahan

      You guys need to check out the Crescent moon hotel in Eurekasprings Arkansas lot of history possibly some ghosts

    6. The Mandolorian

      You guys should do the Rey Rivera case it’s very interesting and I think u guys should look into it

    7. Tammy

      I’m Scottish and the accents omg ahahahhahaha

    8. Bella Poole

      Could this have inspired The Lighthouse?


      this episode should be renamed ryan and shane butchering a scottish accent

    10. Eunice Sintos

      This reminds me of “The Lighthouse” movie starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Patinson. Very claustrophobic movie I must say.

    11. Dil 8049


    12. Prithvi Kewalramani

      Ryan's laugh gives me life 17:01

    13. Alina

    14. megan martin

      Me: being Scottish and not offended Ryan: if your Scottish and are offended you should be Me: if you say so!!

    15. OGRiceFarmer

      Ryan's laugh 😂😂 17:00

    16. Cactus Box

    28. Rico Sat

      watttt Buzzfeed has new video :O

    29. Ryan Jackson

      Why are Americans dreadful at accents

    30. Jennessa Barna's Room

      maybe 2 of the light house keepers died of illness or natural causes and the last one buried them somewhere or threw their bodies in the ocean. Then the last one if he truly was depressed and sad cause he was all alone he jumps off the cliff and kills himself.

    31. henry

      Do the fiona torbert murder in the highlands

    32. Hedvika Krejzová

    33. Clayton Orr

      Don’t stop making these please! This is the only reason I follow this page is for this

    34. Wannabe_cute

    36. ianny tabale

    41. The_Ak_ Guy

      I love you guys keep it up

    42. Leah Schlanker

      As if the US pronunciation of buoy is booey, how’s buoyancy pronounced? Booey-ancy?

    43. E Mhaighstir

      When their pronunciation of the Gaelic Eilean Mòr (meaning big island) is more accurate than their Scottish accents 😂

    44. 12 year old me was not good at picking usernames

      Post mortem question: is shanes face okay after that accent fail?

    45. Anna Rose


    46. Nicole Hansen

    57. zaeliyen

      shane not realising he could have rhymed light with sprite will never not be funny to me

    58. louis tomlinson supremacy cult

      ryan: these men either got swept by the ocean, killed each other or were abducted by aliens shane: no, i think they lived happily ever after :))

    59. Adam Dickinson

      Christ why are they sitting so far apart? They had a massive falling out or something?!?

      1. Wendillon

        Covid. They have to set a social distancing example.

    60. Hokusai

      Oh... i thought they quit this gig to do Watcher... I’m glad they’re still doing unsolved. Ryan’s narration is so iconic...

    61. Jamie o0o0o0

      In the spirit of these three decided to become a brother husband trio and run off to Jamaica together, and how that those mustaches in the thumbnail are reminiscent of burt Reynolds playgirl spread, so hot, and this is the total best case scenario.

    62. Charlesen Billuk

      0:47 the best part

    63. Sarahbeth Parker

      Anyone else feel like they already made a video on this a while ago? Like i remember watching this with them months ago but they were in their old office.

    64. Shawn4815162342

      How are you guys on season 7 of this and haven't done an episode on the inconsistent "evidence" surrounding Kurt Cobain's death???

    65. *Afriana Lost*


    66. DarkComputerGirl

      Me: *(listens to both Ryan and Shayne "rap")* "I consider myself a GOOD freestyle rapper... But If I'm going against Shayne and/or Ryan I'm probs gonna kick their asses at an epic rap battle" XD

    67. Paulina Torres

      not the men having a drop the mic event with men mermaids

      1. Paulina Torres

        a whole roast session

    68. Benry

      i zoned out completely for a little bit and the thing that broke me out of it was shane yelling "#nutbuster"

    69. drttyu liqm

      What if morale was so bad they made a suicide pact..

    70. Ariel Novak


    71. Bappo

      Did these disappearances inspire the movie “the lighthouse” with Robert Pattinson and willam Defoe?

      1. Lafalot54

        no different story

      2. drttyu liqm

        I want to see an episode on the good hart murders in good hart MI

    72. Anthony Floyd


    73. Rachel Klein

      #postmortem I feel like the spirit that scared off shepherds was over looked. Is there any possibility that the spirit had something to do with their disappearance?

    74. Ma go

      butt of shane is the windiest place in the US LOL

    75. Hi Milly!

      Dammit, i missed you guys!

    76. Fiore Ciliegia

      This reminds me a lot of the Kaz 2 ship disappearance

    77. Zeph R Sp

      I want y’all to do the dytlov pass

    78. shenshine

      for post mortem: is it possible that pirates or bad men abduct them and kidnapped them to be slaves?

    79. MySelfEsteemIsLowerThanTikTok

      what if they just.....abandoned the lighthouse??

    80. it’s blu

      Ryan’s had his zingers down pat. Very proud.

    81. milkyeon

      25:28 Oh hey, Ricky's back! :D

    82. Nia Vidal

      This is fun with Ryan but Shane makes this more fun HAHAHAHHA

    83. sonia sharma

      ghouuul boys are baack

    84. katie holden

      do the murder of elsie paroubek!!

    85. Melissa Stoia

      Why do Shane and Ryan sound hammered?

    86. The Sarah Daily

      I want to see an episode on the good hart murders in good hart MI

    87. Mangoren

      Lighthouse keepers are just moths

    88. Jason Hornsby

      Oh my god, I am SO glad to see you guys back with a new season.

    89. Brendan Clemente

      Ryan: "its possible... but not plausible.." Also Ryan: "Theory 3...."

    90. Gemgem Goodall

      Why do I feel like I’m heard this before..

    91. Zachary Gaskill

      YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING AND THE LAST REAL REPORTERS LEFT AT BUZZFEED, and you're investigating the paranormal.... that's all that needs to be said

    92. spyro115

      my theory is that, they got abducted by someone/s foreign who came on the island and threatened them as they came along leaving everything behind.

    93. mushroom _Fairy

      ive really missed this.

    94. Victor Lazaro

      Wait haven’t they done this story before? I could’ve sworn I heard something about lighthouse keepers disappearing and talking about a storm? Does anyone else know maybe what other channel has talked about this?

    95. Stephen Kosobucki

      Thank God they're back

    96. Xeritinrx

      This feels like what inspired the movie the lighthouse

      1. Lafalot54

        Nope it's based on the smalls lighthouse tragedy

    97. Garrett Hampton

      Your next video should be about who killed Leah Rowland’s, a murder case in Nebraska, the killer was caught killing her on camera but nobody has ever caught the man or know who he was

    98. Baked Chowdahh

      Yeahh! So glad to see you guys back at it! :D

    99. Vicky Berdiales


    100. D dancer

      Shane's hair looks great, too bad the straights are so uncomfortable over a man wearing a headband. Y'all really hate any remotely GNC men huh
