It was Gandhi who said, "If you hate something, try it, and maybe your attitude will change." And even though we just invented that quote for Gandhi, it feels right in his wheelhouse. All this to say, Andrew, Adam and Ben put aside their hatred of e-scooters and try living as the Vape-Bro half lives, in a free-for-all scooter race through the streets of downtown Denver. It's all very, very stupid.  Featuring standup comedy clips from Colorado's own Eeland Stribling and a deep cut from friend-of-the-pod Ian Karmel!  Learn more about your ad choices.

In an attempt to get in touch with their inner selves, the boys decide to give sensory-deprivation salt tanks a go. No light. No sound.

You see them coming down the block, take in those Grawlix-boy physiques, lower your shades and are all like, "Damn, girl. Damn." But hot yoga is something else entirely. It's yoga. At a 105 degrees.
