  • "Why can't we have a game set in West Virginia?" Todd Howard: Hold my beer.

    • @Ray13 THAT HOW YOU DO ME???!!!

    • Todddddd TODDDDD WHY'D YOU DO THAT TO WEST VIRGINIA, TODDDDDDDD?

    • I see what you did there and I appreciate it very much so

  • this completes the trinity of mcelroy speeches (with griffin's fsu talk and travis's ohio media school talk)

    • also justin predicted fortnite

  • "yes God?" j man always burning

  • Tough crowd tonight huh?

  • Notice at 38:28, he gets asked a hard question and pauses multiple times to think about what he's saying rather than just blurting out whatever comes first. I think that's a pretty important skill too!

  • PUBG clones huh? sounds like a pipe dream to me.....................

  • there is a slow Social Ecology to these boys, much like Terry Pratchett

  • That is the worst crowd ever. Poor juice.

  • bruh what’s going on w that audience?????? no ones reactin

  • July 12, 2019 can confirm huntingtonnews.net no longer exists.

  • “Why can’t they have games that are set here?” Fallout 76 “Thanks guys... -___-“

  • on the whole community thing- liam dryden talked about this too, how he left scotland because he felt there was no youtube community there at that time, and now he regrets it because he's disconnected from the community that has since sprung up in his homeland (where he eventually wants to live again, which is an important point in that). no one should feel obligated to stay somewhere ofc, but if you're leaving because you feel like you have no community, maybe you should consider becoming the start of that community!

  • imagine his surprise when fall out 76 came out lol

  • the fact that none of the mcelroy's do/have done standup is almost unbelievable, any of them would kill it i know it

  • THIS IS A+ MATERIAL this audience is wack

  • Justin's "yes god?" after the random windows noise was SO GOOD

  • Why is no one laughing????? Justin’s hilarious

  • and then there was f76 gg justin they need to pay you! #payjustin

  • his anxiety!!! is giving me anxiety!!! but im so proud of him!!

  • Throwing shade at his bros lol

  • haha i swear this group sounds like travis told them "ok.. when justin is up here... no one laugh!! he hates laughter! he only likes silence."

  • How could people not laugh it his great jokes ; 10 out of 10 on the joke scale Justin☆

  • Justin: You do not know what your big opportunity looks like until *afterwards.* Me: [goosebumps]

  • I have a job I like and I'm not trying to break into the video games industry in any way and I STILL feel so inspired by this???

  • WTF is wrong with these people? How are they not appreciating this good good goof boy??

  • "You should always be holding the most mics in any room" didn't work so well at Escape to Magaritaville did it?

    • Al Roker MELTED HIS ASS

    • I was in tears in that episode

    • Just didn't have enough mics. 2 more and Roker wouldn't have said a word.

    • I'm not sure Griffin will ever recover after the Al Roker incident.

  • Hate this audience.

  • Tough crowd man

  • i love you so much

  • It blew my goshdarn mind when I learned the McElroys did Joystiq writing back in the day.

  • A keynote speaker an honor bestowed to Paul blart, a sure great responsibility for Justin ! :D

  • HOW ARE THESE PEOPLE NOT LAUGHING

    • @CodyM it's a keynote speech not a mulaney special sit your ass down

    • @CodyM Dude it's a fucking keynotes speech to high school students not a standup special.

    • CodyM uhh are you saying that Justin McElroy isn’t the funniest boy is the world?

    • It isn't funny...

    • Meowzi there was a crowd of 200+ high school students and aspiring game developers in a room where noise doesn't carry and nor does the lapel mic (plus they were told to be quiet during the keynote).

  • ooooooooo, Justin's so nervous, so sad to see nobody laugh at his good good goofs

  • What a good, soft, eloquent word boy

  • Can't believe those people aren't laughing all the time. Justin is so funny and witty, yet they're so stiff. Man.

    • @CodyM "bombing and flailing" I guaran-fucking-tee you would sweat yourself off that stage in 10 minutes or less. But it must be nice to have the dissenting opinion in the EEpush comments, yeah?

    • He's bombing and flailing. They're absolutely correct.

    • I’m right there with ya! I expected to at least hear some laughs echo around the room, but nothing. And Justin led with some real good jokes. I’m two minutes in and just, nothing.

    • I assumed they were laughing a bit more than we can hear, but the only mic(s) are on Justin so we can't hear it as well?

    • I know!! i don't get it, it was funny for me

  • As of January 10th, 2018, this video has 115 likes and 0 dislikes. Justin cannot be stopped.

  • Man, I could listen to any of the McElroys talk about anything. They're all wonderful, engaging speakers

    • I literally do listen to them talk for hours at a time

    • That's what I was going to say. I could listen to Justin talk for hours.

  • 10:48 - 11:11 justin is briefly possessed by residual totinos energy

  • Man, tough crowd. J-man is so nervous.

    • I can't believe the mics joke got no laughs.

    • I had the same thought at first. But ultimately he nailed it. If the room wasn’t as responsive to his (pretty respectable) first few minutes of jokes, it doesn’t matter because his talk ended up being excellent.

    • It really is great! He really hits a stride midway. Its funny, informative and inspiring. It was a solid keynote. I had no idea about all the work he put into getting noticed. You did a great job editing! Thanks for this video!

    • Bearclah there was a crowd of 200+ high school students and aspiring game developers in a room where noise doesn't carry (plus they were told to be quiet during the keynote). Having edited this video (and watching it at least 20 times) Justin does an amazing job of explaining that your dreams don't require you to leave. The keynote gets better each time I watch it.
