Also speaking about the show, co-host Thomas Gumede said;

“I’m Ridiculousness’ number one fan and I’ve literally been glued to the screen since the first episode, so when I got the call it was like a summons from on high!   I feel like I'm getting paid to do what I normally do - which is watch internet clips with my friends, and my co-hosts make my job easier because Basketmouth is funny and Boity is beautiful.  We’re the dream team”.

Bearing the warning “don’t try this at home” the show is the home-grown version of "Ridiculousness," MTV’s long-running video clip show hosted by Rob Dyrdek.
