other than Lindsey Pelas.– Hi, guys.– How are you today?
– Thank you for having me.– Thank you for coming.
– I love your bar.– My fake bar?
– I love it.– Please. Pretty much the
queen of social media,she has millions of followers.She also has a podcast
called “Eyes Up Here,”and she recently helped
open a new restaurantin Los Angeles
called Sugar Taco.– Yeah, come get your taco fix.– (beep) I would.So I’m going to ask you
a bunch of questions.You get it right, I
have to take a shot.You get it wrong, you
have to take a shot.– Sounds like a win-win.– Today we have a signature
cocktail just for Lindsey.It’s called the Bombshells Away,made by Garin Ferri from
Brooklyn’s Reclamation Bar.At the end of today’s show,we’ll teach all of you
at home how to make itif you stick around.Number one.– Oh, man it’s like already?– What is Louisiana’s
official state drink?A: Abita Root Beer.B: Hurricanes. Head to
New Orleans, you know.C: Milk.D: Watered down Hawaiian Punch.– I think it’s B, hurricane.

Well, you’re wrong.It is C, Milk.– What the…what?– I don’t know.

I’m going to go C,because it sounds
just out of the water.– You’re absolutely right.– Yay!– Bikini Atoll, that’s where
they tested the A-bomb.– Oh my God, sick.– Yeah, it is.You have a quote that I love.“I’m making bank off of
what should oppress me.”I think we’ve been really
lucky with the internetbecause a lot of times
women’s careers were definedby the men who
placed them there.So it would be some
rich guy who decidedyou’re going to be the
cover of this magazineyou’re going to do this.And with the internet,the world gets to choose
what they’re invested in.– Right.– And a lot of times it
doesn’t need that middle man.It’s just, I post
whatever I want,and then I get the followers.So then, I make my
own endorsements,and my own advertisements,and I don’t need to answer
to some corporate weirdo.Which is awesome.– So suck it, you corporate
weirdos out there.– Yes, suck my–

you think it is?– Yes.
– Wow.– It is sick.The only this is the

public perception of him.– Yeah.– What do people
not know about him?– He’s not faking anything.Guns, girls, like, it’s
kind of, it’s just wild.– That’s him.
– That is real.– Wow.– He’s more laid back,he’s actually
kinda more country.– Really?– Yeah.– Would you hang
