#387 – Joey Harrell

Listen now

Sevan Matossian (00:01):

Bam. We’re live good morning, Bruce. Good morning, Heidi. Why am I always fidgeting with this thing? How would this thing keep coming loose? It doesn’t even make sense to me. I don’t see any other podcasters using this, like a janky arm like this or fidgeting with their fucking mic all the time. I guess I don’t watch your many podcasts. Can you guys hear me? I’m using my inside voice. Someone told me I should do voice exercises before the

Sevan Matossian (00:35):

Show starts.

Sevan Matossian (00:38):

I think our guest is coming on. Mr. Good eggs, Joey Harrell. You know, what’s gonna be different about this show. I’m not prepared for it at all. I prepare for every single show almost to a point of like weirdness. Like it becomes all consuming And there’s just not a lot to prepare with this guy. I wonder if he knows the show is live. How about the guy yesterday in his car? Did he know the show was live? Imagine if Suza or Caleb came on from their car? Hi, I’m working for my car today. That would be weird. Oh shit. I hope my phone is shit. Is all better. Were you guys on last night show

Sevan Matossian (01:31):

And saw how jacked up the, the whole phone thing was? You guys got to see me be fake last night. That’s really weird that I ever go on autopilot. Oh, wait, what? This is so weird. It says the show is live in two places. Oh, I hope I didn’t ski. Did I send this guy the wrong link? What’s going on here? Hey, is that true? That, uh, something was leaked from the Supreme court and like, we know that there’s gonna be some sort of, oh no, it’s only one place. Okay. There’s gonna be some sort of change to Roe. Uh, Roe, Roe V. Wade. Wow. Last night shows viewing numbers are fucking huge. I guess we have Justin Maderas and Miranda and Julian on as shit rocks.

Sevan Matossian (02:19):

Uh, it sounds like what they’re gonna do shit. Well, I mean, what do I know? I guess there’s two big stories. The big story is one. How is the, how, how is that released? How is that leaked from the Supreme court? That’s a little disappointing, bad for morale and two. Uh, what, what exactly does it say? Are, are they basically saying that the states are now gonna, uh, have the choice to decide if abortion is legal or what the guidelines are for removing a, we shouldn’t call it abortion, removing a fertilized egg from a woman’s body. Is that, is that what that is? That’s that’s what the discussion is about. Someone help me with the exact, exact wording on that. You know, like your sister is the concept of a female, something with a vagina that came out of your mom’s vagina. That’s like, I guess the most elemental, uh, truth about the word sister.

Sevan Matossian (03:14):

And so Roe V. Wade is the decision on whether a fertilized egg from a woman, an egg that’s been penetrated by sperm. Oh, uh, can it be, can it be trying to say without it being loaded, I just don’t like all the, I was, I was reading about it today in the New York times. Just a little BN there saying this could be a huge change for women’s reproductive rights. And I, and I just read that and I’m like, that’s not true. That’s I mean, it, it’s only like a tiny part of the story. It’s only a tiny part of the story to just call Roe V. Wade about women’s productive rights. It’s about babies rights. It’s about science. It’s about, I mean, it’s it’s so, uh, it’s so biased when you say it like that, it’s dishonest. It’s dishonest.

Sevan Matossian (04:05):

I can only watch at work when I’m mowing the lawn, working out one day, I will be free enough to call in. No you won’t. There’s not a better interviewer on the planet than seven. Bless you, brother. I wish I could say your name. M B B N venue. I will. I would return to the choice to the states. I would return the choice to, oh, cuz it wa it used to be like that you can be pro you’re using the word abortion. How would you be promo? You can be pro allowing people to remove a fertilized egg from a woman and be anti RO V Wade. Yeah. RBG felt this way. Oh, meaning I, so you’re saying that she knew that you should leave the choice to the states that, that it, uh, constitutionally it wasn’t something that the federal government should be involved in.

Sevan Matossian (05:03):

Wow. I sounded smart for a second. Abortion is a termination of pregnancy, so abortion. So what you’re saying is abor, uh, uh, uh, abortion is the, uh, ending of the growth of a fertilized egg by sperm. That’s what abortion is. It’s it’s, it’s, it’s stopping that progress somewhere along the line. I just wanna, I just wanna give it definitions. It, it needs to be so specific. Yes. Gives the power to the states to decide whether it’s legal or not. I wonder what it is in the constitution that makes that a, um, what, what amendment or, or what element of federal law, um, crosses over its bounds by ma uh, not allowing the states to decide that how about, but there, there was that thing in California that I was looking at it, it, it kind of was nauseating to see that basically they weren’t calling it. Um, they were basically saying that they wanted to adjust women’s rights and allow women to that, that if their baby were to die, it was either 10 days or seven days. Let’s say seven. If, if your baby were to die, seven days after it came out of the womb and was out in the real world, that there would be no investigation into its death. That is some trippy shit. Like, why do you need a law like that?

Sevan Matossian (06:26):

I don’t like that one so much. I don’t like that one so much. Is Joey coming on? Joey Harrell? You guys wanna see who the guest is? Who the guest was gonna be? No, not this guy. There’s a couple different Joey Harrells I showed you guys, um, him last night. He’s the guy that does the Peter Griffith. Uh, the family guy impersonations. When I first found family guy, they were in their 13th season. I wonder what season they’re in now. Let me see. Uh, season is family guy in. Oh, so they’re in season 20. Oh, no. I had to have found them more than seven years ago. I can’t remember whenever I found them. Ah, maybe, maybe it was, it was before I had a right before I had a, yeah, maybe it was 13 seasons. Okay, fine. And, um, or after we, we didn’t terminate a, we, we, we, my wife, um, I, I fertilized, I semen fertilized an egg inside of my wife and a baby grew.

Sevan Matossian (07:34):

And then he came out. I’m probably not supposed to say this, but he came out, uh, three weeks late, which is, uh, illegal in the state of California. You’re not allowed to have a home birth. You’re not allowed to have a home birth if the baby is more than two weeks late <laugh> can you imagine that’s just bad shit. Crazy laws on women. Women are worried about. They say that they’re worried about women’s rights, but a woman can’t have a baby if, and then having twins at home is illegal also. So you have to tell the world, oh, I didn’t know. I had twins. The, the hospitals are supposed to be the safe places.

Sevan Matossian (08:14):

He’s a douche. I think Trevor Noah is a douche. Bruce. I think he’s a bad person. I think he’s a RA. I think he is, uh, um, the, uh, the guardian of systemic racism. He insists systemic racism exists under the guise of, uh, fighting against it. He’s basically he’s that guy. Who’s, you know, the, the, the 20 guys who ride around on their horses, um, in, in, in 1850, looking for the child molester in the town, he’s the child molester riding with the pack. So he doesn’t get caught. You know what I mean? He’s hiding with the people who are looking for the bad guy.

Sevan Matossian (08:52):

He’s, that’s what, that’s what all the woke people are doing. That’s what all the woke people are doing. That’s what they all do. They are the racist. They, I, I’m starting to realize more and more. What liberals do is they live in a class society. Cuz I see that with my, my close, loved ones, they live in a class society. They really feel sorry for people. And they think they feeling sorry for people is okay, but that’s because they don’t understand how the world works. Feeling. Sorry for people is what keeps ’em down. And they don’t care about the definition of words.

Sevan Matossian (09:24):

If they can make an emotional leap or some sort of intellectual, um, retardation, they’re okay with it. So when I was a liberal, if, if someone would’ve said Barack Obama is a Muslim, I would’ve said that that’s racist because I was racist. And there I would’ve had some correlation or connection or causation between black and Muslim and judging people by their color. But it’s not racist at all. It’s just a guess. It’s just a, it’s just a, it’s not racist to say Barack Obama, wasn’t born in the United States. I mean, I don’t believe that. I’m just saying to accuse someone of that, you have to make a, um, a, a leap that’s that’s clearly a fallacy that makes you stupid, makes you less smart. Makes you less aware. Makes you jump to a conclusion, makes you have an assumption, make a presupposition. None of that shit is real under the guise of like trying to be nice. That’s why it’s such a, it’s such a crazy hedge. Oh look, there he is.

Sevan Matossian (10:18):

He’s muted. Maybe I have the power to unmute him. I do not have the power to unmute him. Look at that hair. Can you unmute yourself? I think you have to click. Oh, are you unmuted? Oh shit. I still can’t hear you. What’s going on here? How about now? No. Hmm. I’ve never had this problem. Have we had this problem with the guest? Oh, okay. You’re muted again. Maybe you have to choose a different mic. I don’t have that capability on my end for you. All I can do is kick you out or change your name. Maybe I’ll change your name while you’re not looking to your Instagram account. Let me see. Have you seen the other Joey Harrell? Have you ever found him? Don’t we y’all talk while you do that. Okay. I’m gonna change your Instagram account to, I’m gonna change your name to, um, this I’m gonna tell you something we’re starting off on the wrong foot. No, not because I can’t hear you, but because I have a O C, D and underscores drive me crazy. Some of my best friends have underscores in there. Here. I hear you

Joey Harrell (11:32):

Hear me.

Sevan Matossian (11:33):

Yes.

Joey Harrell (11:34):

Does that sound okay?

Sevan Matossian (11:35):

Yes. I appreciate you having an underscore so I can work on my OCD, my okay. My, my, my, um, my, uh, prejudice and discrim views towards people who use an underscore. Why do you have an underscore Joey?

Joey Harrell (11:50):

Um, I think at the time that was, uh, I think that was what I originally started with on like Twitch, which is where this all began, began. So I, I had an underscore, so I wanted to make it consistent. And now I got rid of the underscore on Twitch cuz I got a new username. Yeah. Yeah. You know <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (12:05):

Can, can you just, can you just take it out on um, uh, on Instagram right there too. Could you just take it out?

Joey Harrell (12:12):

I’m gonna, I’m gonna try. I’m gonna try. Okay. Yeah, for sure. <laugh> I feel you though. I don’t like it either.

Sevan Matossian (12:17):

<laugh> I don’t know why. What if you would, you could have just been like fuck off. I like an underscore. It reminds me of my mother who passed away a couple years ago. I’d be like, oh

Joey Harrell (12:24):

<laugh> yeah. That underscore is very sentimental to me. Yes

Sevan Matossian (12:27):

<laugh>

Joey Harrell (12:30):

Uhoh

Sevan Matossian (12:30):

Yeah. I’m better. It happens all the time. I’m 50. Sometimes it just goes down

Joey Harrell (12:34):

On action. I get it. I understand.

Sevan Matossian (12:35):

Sometimes it just goes, okay. Uh, I wanna show you, this is not you right? This, this, uh, let me see if I can pull this guy up.

Joey Harrell (12:45):

<laugh> call me Jay.

Sevan Matossian (12:46):

Joey Harrell (12:48):

That’s not me. I don’t think so. That’s not my name.

Sevan Matossian (12:52):

Joey Harrell (13:02):

No idea.

Sevan Matossian (13:05):

Isn’t it a trip that it’s Joey Harrell. Voice studio.

Joey Harrell (13:09):

Yeah. That is weird. You know, I’ve I have talked to one other Joey har on the internet and it was not this guy. So that’s weird.

Sevan Matossian (13:19):

It’s almost is weird that he has to have a, he him here. <laugh> and that’s a whole nother, but that’s a whole nother subject. That’s

Joey Harrell (13:26):

Another thing.

Sevan Matossian (13:26):

That’s a whole nother subject, but you don’t really look like him, but you, when I go through your Instagram, you have so many, um, you have so many looks.

Joey Harrell (13:38):

Yeah, yeah. There’s there’s definitely been a bit of an evolution over time. Huh?

Sevan Matossian (13:42):

Yeah.

Joey Harrell (13:43):

<laugh>

Sevan Matossian (13:44):

Did you see the picture I chose of you?

Joey Harrell (13:47):

Um, the one that’s on YouTube.

Sevan Matossian (13:49):

Yeah. It’s like you with a cat.

Joey Harrell (13:51):

Yeah. That’s like mad old. When I saw that, I was kind of like interesting choice, you know? Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (13:56):

Yeah. I just like the, I just like the eyes.

Joey Harrell (13:59):

Yeah. Yeah. I’m sure.

Sevan Matossian (14:00):

Look at this. This is your James Dean phase. This is um, yeah. Uh, eight years ago.

Joey Harrell (14:06):

Yeah. I was, uh, started off getting a model when I was like 21. So

Sevan Matossian (14:11):

You have a switch blade probably in your pocket?

Joey Harrell (14:13):

Yes. Yeah, definitely. Yeah. That was totally what I had in my pocket for sure. <laugh> yeah. I went through a bit of, a bit of a modeling phase there. Um, I still like to take photos. I’m I’m a bit of a, a horror for the camera if you will. Um, but yeah, that was, that was a while back.

Sevan Matossian (14:31):

You’ve gone from like James Dean to weird Ali Yankovich

Joey Harrell (14:35):

Yeah, kinda kind. I like to think more of like Blake from workaholics, you know? Oh,

Sevan Matossian (14:40):

Okay. Hold that’s

Joey Harrell (14:41):

Kind of more my vibe.

Sevan Matossian (14:42):

Hold on. Let me see that.

Joey Harrell (14:44):

<laugh>

Sevan Matossian (14:47):

Hey, do you know about, um, uh, weird Al? Oh shit. Yeah. I see it. I see

Joey Harrell (14:51):

It. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (14:53):

Do you have a YouTube station open? I think I hear a echo.

Joey Harrell (14:57):

Um, let me see.

Sevan Matossian (14:58):

Okay. Thank you. While I pull up Blake here,

Joey Harrell (15:02):

I was gonna run the speakers instead of putting on headphones. So I might just turn you on a bit here.

Sevan Matossian (15:08):

Okay. Sorry.

Joey Harrell (15:09):

No, no, you’re good. This is my bad. Let me turn my gain down a bit. I think it’s automatically adjusting my gain by chance. So you,

Sevan Matossian (15:19):

You look thin a little bit thinner than this guy, but, but, but I, I do, I do really see it.

Joey Harrell (15:25):

<laugh> yeah. I love this dude. He’s hilarious. He’s fancy

Sevan Matossian (15:28):

Name of the show. Workaholics.

Joey Harrell (15:29):

Yeah. Workaholics. Yeah. Yep.

Sevan Matossian (15:32):

I don’t know it. What station is it on?

Joey Harrell (15:35):

Um, well I don’t think they’re still doing it. Um, but when it came out, I wanna say maybe it was on like, uh, comedy central or something, but I, no, maybe it was, I can’t remember where, what it was premiered on, but I wasn’t watching it when it was coming out. You know what I mean? Like I I’ve been, I’ve only caught episodes ever since they finished a show.

Sevan Matossian (15:54):

I, I, uh, I, I feel weird when I say stuff like that too. Like what station was that on?

Joey Harrell (15:59):

Yeah, that sounds kinda old. Low key.

Sevan Matossian (16:01):

Yeah, it does. Right? It’s like I’m out of the loop. Like are there even stations anymore? Do kids? How old are you?

Joey Harrell (16:07):

I’m 28. I’ll be 29 in July.

Sevan Matossian (16:10):

Do 28, man. You look young. You look good.

Joey Harrell (16:12):

<laugh> yeah. Thanks. Appreciate. I, I have big face.

Sevan Matossian (16:15):

<laugh> do 28 year olds say that, like you don’t you guys don’t what do you guys say instead of station? What station is he on or what channel?

Joey Harrell (16:21):

Oh, I, I don’t know. Um,

Sevan Matossian (16:22):

Do you guys say, what platform is he on? Is it platform

Joey Harrell (16:25):

Now? Yeah. What streaming service you, is it on? You know, is it on typically? I probably would’ve just name it. Like, is that on Netflix? Is that on Hulu? That’s probably the vibe.

Sevan Matossian (16:33):

Just take a stab.

Joey Harrell (16:35):

Yeah, exactly. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (16:38):

So I would about seven or eight. Oh, damn. We have an echo still. Maybe it’s me.

Joey Harrell (16:43):

Maybe it, maybe

Sevan Matossian (16:45):

I’m going, I’m looking at all my YouTube tabs that are open. Okay. This one’s open. I’m closing you, closing you. Yeah. And I don’t hear it anymore. Nope. It’s back.

Joey Harrell (16:55):

Okay. Um,

Sevan Matossian (16:58):

Let’s see. We not have it. Is it on Hulu? It’s what people say. Joey looks like a pro skateboard. Andy Anderson. <laugh> show him your son’s seven dude is insane. Okay. I will I’ll show Andy, my show, Andy to my sons. Seon doesn’t know a pop culture reference. No, dude, I don’t ever fucking leave this office.

Joey Harrell (17:22):

<laugh> still that

Sevan Matossian (17:23):

Live. I just live here. I just put Joe in, in my hair every 24

Joey Harrell (17:26):

Hours. Are we still getting a echo by the way?

Sevan Matossian (17:27):

No, it’s gone.

Joey Harrell (17:29):

It’s gone. Okay. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (17:30):

You’re a boss, boss.

Joey Harrell (17:31):

Sweet.

Sevan Matossian (17:32):

Okay. So, so about about seven or eight years ago? Um, I was sitting at home and I, I somehow this guy, this show family guy came across my radar. I think they were on like season 12 or 13 and I just purchased all of ’em from iTunes cuz that’s what old people do. Right. And um, and I just started going through them and of course my favorite guy, I mean, I love everyone on the show. It’s it’s kind of weird when you like all the characters. Of course. I just gravitated, gravitated towards a quagmire.

Joey Harrell (18:00):

Yes.

Sevan Matossian (18:01):

Yeah. And there would be, there would be like 10 episodes in a row where he’s not on and I’d want to fucking punch myself, but I just loved all the, the GIY and I knew if he was on it was my sense of humor. It was like, do you know the show, California CA

Joey Harrell (18:14):

Um, I know of it. I didn’t really watch it.

Sevan Matossian (18:17):

It’s um, it’s like qu Myers. It’s like, quagmires dream life. It’s just, just this guy. Just, just fucking in Venice, right? Yeah. Oh yeah. Just getting in trouble.

Joey Harrell (18:26):

Yeah. Constant horn dog.

Sevan Matossian (18:28):

Yeah. And he just smokes a lot of cigarettes and drinks and he’s a writer and just bangs hot chicks and like, like he’s the dude who accidentally bangs your daughter, like,

Joey Harrell (18:35):

Oh yeah, yeah.

Sevan Matossian (18:37):

Oh, you did it a eat

Joey Harrell (18:38):

<laugh>

Sevan Matossian (18:39):

Or what’s.

Joey Harrell (18:40):

I try to do his voice sometimes, but it’s not great.

Sevan Matossian (18:42):

Can, can you do it for me?

Joey Harrell (18:44):

God? Oh, I’m trying. But my, uh, lemme make sure my wave gain lock is on cuz it keeps wanting to automatically adjust and that’s the problem having. Okay. Um, let’s see here. Uh

Joey Harrell (18:57):

<laugh> uh, Peter. Hey Peter. Hey, uh, Lowe’s looking pretty fantastic today. I’d like to get deep inside that. Yeah. Gaty

Joey Harrell (19:04):

<laugh>

Sevan Matossian (19:06):

How do you know that you can do these?

Joey Harrell (19:09):

Um, I don’t know. It it’s just kind of been something I’ve been able to do since I was young. Um, I would, I’ve always been kind of a bit of a parrot and she like to imitate stuff and I like to test my voice. I, I kind of dream of being a voice actor some so, you know, that’s that? I don’t know, man. It it’s honestly a little bit of practice too, you know, I’ll just watch something and I’ll just kind of like test it as I’m watching it. <laugh> kind of annoy the crap outta my girlfriend, you know?

Sevan Matossian (19:36):

Okay. So you’re straight. We got that checked off the list straight. Yes,

Joey Harrell (19:40):

I am straight.

Sevan Matossian (19:40):

He dropped it. He has a girlfriend.

Joey Harrell (19:43):

Yep. Six years.

Sevan Matossian (19:45):

Wow. Holy shit. Since you’ve been 22.

Joey Harrell (19:49):

Well, not quite. That’s not quite right. Um, I think since 22, 23, 23, 22, 23. I don’t know. You know what? I’m not good with math. I’m a creative. Okay. So don’t, don’t hold me to that.

Sevan Matossian (20:04):

That’s the thing I am living. My someone wrote, you’re living your life through quagmire. I am <laugh> uh, uh, 20. So when you meet a woman, when you’re 22, all you care about is, um, seen or naked and laying around naked with her and shine with her. And now you’re maturing into a man and you’re like, you’re finding other reasons to like her. That’s like, I mean, I’ve been with my wife since I’ve been like 20. She was, yeah. She actually reminded me of that the other day. She’s like, yeah. When I met you, like, that’s like, that’s like, you were just, couldn’t keep your hands off me.

Joey Harrell (20:30):

Yeah, no,

Sevan Matossian (20:31):

I still kind of can’t but, but I mean it’s, it’s toned down a little.

Joey Harrell (20:34):

Oh yeah, yeah. For sure. I, I, I think definitely when you’re in your early twenties, things definitely start off like, you know, obviously very physical. Um, but we also did like right off the rip pretty much hang out almost like every day. So yes. Like we’re, we’re like best friends, you know what I mean?

Sevan Matossian (20:50):

Does she do any stuff like you? Does she do any of this voice stuff?

Joey Harrell (20:54):

Uh, she actually is. Uh, yeah, she’s kind of a bit of a dork. Like I am in the fact that she loves to do voices as well. She does like, uh, her own Nicholas cage and um, oh

Sevan Matossian (21:03):

Shit.

Joey Harrell (21:04):

She likes to do that one chick, uh, uh, what’s her name? Um, oh, let me pull the tab here so I can

Sevan Matossian (21:11):

Research how fun.

Joey Harrell (21:13):

Yeah, it is. It is a lot of fun. Um, we’re, we’re big old dorks. When you put us together, it’s kind of ridiculous.

Sevan Matossian (21:20):

Do you have, what is Twitch? Tell me about what the fuck Twitch is. Is Twitch, YouTube.

Joey Harrell (21:26):

Um, <laugh> Twitch is a live stream platform. Um, that pretty much allows people to stream whatever they want. So, um, you can stream, you know, except for the sex stuff. Like, you know, we’ll leave that to other websites, but um, they get close though. We’ll get to that. Um, but you can stream,

Sevan Matossian (21:43):

I heard you can’t say the word. You can’t call someone a retard on Twitch.

Joey Harrell (21:46):

No. Oh no you can’t. No, no, no. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (21:49):

They got rules. Rules.

Joey Harrell (21:50):

There’s censorship. For sure. You can’t even say you can’t say symp. I mean you can’t call,

Sevan Matossian (21:54):

Oh yeah. What is a symp? I hear that word now more and more. Where did that word fucking come from?

Joey Harrell (21:59):

Um, I don’t know where it came from, but I know that it’s a product for the internet. Um, so pretty much if I was like, you know, if you, if you liked it were on a handed foot for your wife and just constantly, you know, would do anything for her. Like you would be chimping for her. Like you’re just, um, kind of like a, another term would be like a soy boy kind of, but soy boy is

Sevan Matossian (22:21):

Longer. Oh, can and you can’t do soy boy on Twitch either.

Joey Harrell (22:25):

Probably not. It’s best to just, you know, follow the rules so you don’t get banned. You know what I mean?

Sevan Matossian (22:30):

Simp as a slang insult for men who are seen as too attentive and too attentive mm-hmm <affirmative> too. I don’t know what too attentive means. And submissive to women, especially out of failed, hope of winning some entitled attention or activity, sex, sexual attention or activity from it’s weird that it I’m, I’m guessing just because of the crazy Walt culture that there’s some sort of, well, you know, what’s crazy yesterday. I posted something on Instagram, in my story showing, showing the, you know, the pregnant man emoji and I, and I had him saying, I had him saying something like stop misinformation.

Joey Harrell (23:09):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (23:09):

And I got fucking someone. I got it got kicked off. I got a ding on my account. I got a little like, you know what I mean? Like a warning from Instagram, I got my booty slap. It’s fucking, it’s their fucking emoji. It’s it’s the, I

Joey Harrell (23:20):

Know <laugh> so it’s silly, man. Um, that’s the internet, internet is like walking on eggshells anymore.

Sevan Matossian (23:30):

Um, and some great. I, I mean, what’s crazy about TikTok too, is the guests I’ve had on from TikTok. Even the woke cats get kicked off of TikTok, like on Instagram. I think it’s only it’s um, it’s more like a, uh, the conservatives who get kicked off mm-hmm <affirmative> but on TikTok it’s like they just blast everybody.

Joey Harrell (23:45):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (23:46):

Do you fuck around, over there on TikTok?

Joey Harrell (23:48):

Do what

Sevan Matossian (23:49):

Do you fuck around with TikTok? Do you fuck with TikTok?

Joey Harrell (23:52):

Yeah. Yeah. That’s actually where I’ve seen majority of my success. Um, over the past couple months,

Sevan Matossian (23:58):

I wonder I can’t fucking find you I’m on all the old people platforms. I was certainly every with, for you, this is the least prepared I’ve ever been for a podcast. I’m like, where the fuck is this guy

Joey Harrell (24:07):

Also just a little heads up. I’m a, I’m a DJ who vapes. So don’t judge me.

Sevan Matossian (24:12):

You’re a, what

Joey Harrell (24:13):

I vape.

Sevan Matossian (24:14):

Oh, oh yeah. Hey let’s we should talk. I wanna talk about that vaping. Do you, do you, um, which vape, which, which vape do you use?

Joey Harrell (24:23):

<laugh> well, typically not the one that I’m using today. Um, the one that I normally use is like a pod system. Um, but the pods that I need to buy for them are in back order. Um, cuz they’re just so popping, I guess. I don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (24:37):

Supply chain issues. Yeah.

Joey Harrell (24:39):

Yeah. I’m like, I thought that was over, you know what I mean? But um,

Sevan Matossian (24:44):

The joy Harrell that popped up, I don’t see. Um, do you have, would search?

Joey Harrell (24:49):

I would search Mr. Good eggs.

Sevan Matossian (24:50):

Okay.

Joey Harrell (24:51):

If you search Mr. Good eggs, I should be the only one that’s saying Mr. Good eggs, because, um, yeah, pretty sure when I look it up,

Sevan Matossian (24:58):

Of course I spell TikTok wrong. Let me see. Oh yeah, there you are. Oh yeah, shit. So that’s is that where you hang out? Would you consider yourself a TikTok guy or a holy shit? You have 45 million views over there.

Joey Harrell (25:16):

Um,

Sevan Matossian (25:18):

TikTok guy or an ins or an Instagram guy.

Joey Harrell (25:21):

I’m a TikTok guy, but I’m, I’m also like, I would just say I’m a content creator. So I post, so right now I’m like in the short form category. So I post all my short form across all of the, the platforms. Uh, you know, I post on, uh, TikTok, Instagram and YouTube, I would say are the majority, um, are the main ones. Um, and I’m just doing short form right now, but I do wanna get into longform for YouTube cuz a lot of people have requested longform versions of my Peter Griffin’s stuff with uh, gameplay for YouTube. So, um, but yeah, it’s been crazy, man. Um, ever since I started doing the voice stuff, like I was, I was sitting at like so pretty much when I started doing this about a year and a half ago, I started off at 2000 probably followers on, on TikTok, like that was after like putting in some work. Um, cuz talk’s weird, you gotta find the algorithm. Um, and so I gave up on it for a long time and I just did streaming. I was like, you know, I’m just gonna stream cuz I was doing it part-time and I I’m just,

Sevan Matossian (26:15):

And the streaming you did on Twitch, right? Mm-hmm <affirmative> Hey, I should have had you stream this to your Twitch channel too. Cause we’re on Twitch, but we never even get one viewer on Twitch, but we’re streaming to Twitch.

Joey Harrell (26:25):

Yeah. Twitch is um, one of those things where it takes a lot of, um, cuz this is see and, and time to build up relationships with people, you know? Um, it’s, it’s a tricky, tricky place. There’s zero discoverability on Twitch. Um, but yeah, so I, when I started doing this, um, I just decided I was just gonna stream. And then when I, uh, decided to go full time as a consecrate, since I was laid off my job, um, I was like, well I better make content again. So I got into this and over the past month, since like February, um, I’ve grown from 2000 to 87,000. Wow. On TikTok, which is pretty, uh, crazy growth because I know a lot of homies that have been doing this for a long time. Um, for the past year longer that are at 40 K. Um, so it’s been, it’s been crazy.

Sevan Matossian (27:14):

So in two months you put on 80,000 followers basically. Yes. You know we had, um, do you know who Justin Nunley is? Um,

Joey Harrell (27:23):

No,

Sevan Matossian (27:24):

I don’t think so. He’s on, he’s on TikTok. He does the stuff like he’ll show you like a, a girl dancing with big old titties for like two seconds and then he goes, listen.

Joey Harrell (27:33):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (27:33):

<laugh> yeah. You know what I’m talking about?

Joey Harrell (27:35):

Stuff like that. I’ve seen some stuff like that. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (27:37):

Um, he just exploded on TikTok. He was telling me something fucking crazy, like, like 4 million in three months, people, I guess it’s like what you, I guess it’s like what you said, you just find the algorithm.

Joey Harrell (27:49):

Yeah, yeah. You, um, there’s, there’s definitely some tricks to TikTok. I, I was fortunate enough to have some guys that are already pretty successful in TikTok. Kind of like see me and say, you know, we like your content. Like we, we think that if we gave you a little bit of tips and help along the way we could blow you up and they, they knew what they were talking about. And so it just, it really came down to how long the video was, um, how I edited it. Um, and, and like the quickness of it. So you gotta think TikTok is like, everyone’s attention span is like two seconds. You know what I’m saying? So you got, you have like two to three seconds to pull someone into your video when they’re scrolling. Um, and so that was kind of the key there. Um, and then to keep them interested, you gotta keep it, you know, you gotta keep cutting and you gotta keep getting the scene changed up and you gotta do it, you know, with graphics and change the, you know, put visuals on there for like all the wording and you know, like the captions and stuff.

Joey Harrell (28:41):

So it’s a, whew, it’s a process, but we, we figured it out. So now it’s just, you know, a matter of, uh, continuing to make content and growing over time, I think, you know,

Sevan Matossian (28:50):

I’m, I’m gonna play this one and by the way, thanks for sharing all that. That was probably one of the best, uh, segments the shows ever had. Everyone. Me

Joey Harrell (28:56):

The is

Sevan Matossian (28:57):

Possible. Here we go here. We let’s see, just

Joey Harrell (28:59):

Leave. Hey, look at that. You did it. Oh my God. Hey, who the hell is me by the way? And why does he need to be free?

Joey Harrell (29:11):

What it’s

Joey Harrell (29:11):

Like to have Peter Griffin as your teammate die, bro. [inaudible] Peter and oh my God. I believe that you can do it. Anything is possible if you just believe, Hey, look at that. You did it. Oh my God. Hey, who the hell is me? By

Sevan Matossian (29:25):

The way? And dude, it’s so good. The best part is when they laugh.

Joey Harrell (29:29):

Yes. Oh yeah. That’s, that’s what you want. That’s what you want right. There is the reaction. Um, I mean, at the end of the day, I’m just like, you know, obviously the Peter Griffin is, is fun to listen to, but it’s even more fun to see people react to it,

Sevan Matossian (29:43):

You know? <laugh> yeah. It’s like, it, it kind of gives me permission to laugh. Okay. So right. You have to, uh, you have to unpack all this fucking shit for me. So when I was in, when I was in college, there was a, um, there was a game that came out and I think it was like one of the first, first shooters game. Like was there a game called.
