  • - There are a lot of instances here at BuzzFeed

  • where I'm like wow, my job is really weird.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - I have one story in particular from when

  • I was filming this series called (beep)

  • and it was like a scripted show and I was one of

  • the characters but I was producing one of the episodes.

  • I had to cast someone to be this guy that I'm like

  • making out with passionately and like he's throwing me

  • on a bed and me start to like literally,

  • well not literally, have sex.

  • We didn't actually have sex.

  • It was one of those scenes.

  • It was just really awkward to have to be like,

  • okay so I need to find someone that I feel

  • comfortable making out with but who's also an actor.

  • And I have to be like hello man who I don't know very well,

  • I need to make out with you also I'm the one

  • producing the video so I'm choosing you to make out with.

  • I was super awkward on the day.

  • I even had a beer cause I was like I have to calm down

  • and then I was like oh my breath smells

  • and I'm just like is it hot in here?

  • Just like saying that a lot.

  • It wasn't. I was just really, really hot.

  • And of course you have to do take after take after take

  • and I'm like here we go again and then

  • like afterwards I just let go of him and I can't

  • go near him anymore and it was, I don't know.

  • It's just a very strange thing to have to deal with.

  • - Four years ago when I first started, I was an intern

  • and one of the things you would do as an intern

  • was you would sign up to do prop runs.

  • I volunteered to do a prop run to a sex shop.

  • This particular shoot they needed a bunch of random (beep).

  • So I went to this sex shop, was like filling up

  • my little bag or whatever, with a lot of things.

  • Lots of penis shaped things.

  • Sex shops are awesome.

  • They're not bad but I have to say

  • like buying that much I was like, hm.

  • When I was like gonna check out I was like

  • should I say something like this is for work ha ha ha

  • and then I decided nah I'm just not gonna say anything and

  • they can like think whatever they want cause like (beep) it.

  • But it was still like a moment where I was

  • like wow, this is my job right now.

  • - There was a video, I think it was about a year

  • and a half ago where people tell their parents

  • via Skype how they lost their virginity.

  • And it was set up like it was supposed to be this game

  • where the parents ask questions and you kind of lead to it.

  • The tension builds and then finally surprise,

  • you tell your parents and it's

  • supposed to be this great idea.

  • When this idea was being pitched I remember the only

  • thought I had was this is gonna make such a good video.

  • Like I was genuinely, there wasn't one thought in my mind

  • that this was a bad idea or that this would be weird

  • or what would the holidays be like.

  • You know like I immediately was just like this is amazing.

  • Call my parents up and they're

  • sitting there and they have no idea.

  • They have no idea what is going on.

  • It was interesting how it still took like five minutes

  • into it for me to realize that this was an awful idea

  • because the story involved breaking and entering,

  • it involved, my parents thought

  • I lost my virginity when I was like 25.

  • I was 16.

  • No judgment, but 16.

  • We like broke back into my parents' house, we like had sex

  • like on my dad's like bed of tools, which is unsanitary,

  • rude, and dangerous all in the same act.

  • I guess I didn't really think about what it was gonna be

  • once it was over because, you know, the video they say cut

  • but you're still on Skype with your parents.

  • So after I like told them this and they are mortified

  • I'm just like chilling with my mom and my dad,

  • realizing that within like a month or two

  • I had to go home for the holidays.

  • And of course, I mean you can imagine,

  • it created an incredibly awkward thing.

  • There was like a line from my dad which was

  • I thought you were different, which was great.

  • My mom said something at Thanksgiving was,

  • no I'm not upset I was just, I was naive.

  • Which is just like, she's just trying

  • to like, they were playing hardball.

  • No one pitied me cause all of my friends

  • home were like why did you tell them?

  • What was going through your mind

  • when you thought this would be a good idea?

  • And that's the reality is is that I don't think

  • I actually thought about this game until they yelled cut.

  • So maybe I'm just an amazing producer.

  • An amazing producer and a dumb daughter.

  • - Usually when BuzzFeed does videos,

  • we usually send out a casting call.

  • One of the videos that I saw in my email

  • was titled "Casting: Build Your Own Vibrator".

  • And I was like wow, that's really intriguing.

  • First of all, I don't dabble in sexual things very often

  • so it was foreign territory so that interested me.

  • Second of all, I really like building

  • things and very hands on things.

  • A little while later I decided to reply.

  • I answered them in full honesty

  • because honesty is the best policy

  • and also I felt like I knew this person well enough

  • to share these details with them and they wouldn't care.

  • The first question was how knowledgeable would you say

  • you are about sexual health and sex toys?

  • And I'm not very knowledgeable about either of those and

  • then I also included a little tidbit fact about my sex toys.

  • Second question was on a scale of one to 10,

  • how handy or tech savvy would you say you are?

  • And so I wrote I am very tech savvy.

  • And then I hit reply.

  • I reread what I wrote and I was very pleased with it.

  • All of the sudden, something compelled me

  • to check who I sent it to.

  • It turns out that I had hit

  • reply all instead of reply,

  • sending it to the entire L.A. BuzzFeed office

  • as well as the video department.

  • That was how I ended up in that video.

  • And I consider myself as a very tech savvy person but I

  • countered that fact by sending it to the entire office.

  • - You know, we do a lot of weird funny stuff at BuzzFeed.

  • I hadn't even been working here that long

  • but one day somebody brought in a sex toy to the office.

  • And it wasn't just any sex toy.

  • It was one of those giant butts that's like

  • sculpted to look like a famous porn star

  • and then you have sex with this like disembodied butt.

  • Somebody wanted to make a video about that.

  • I don't, I don't know what the video was.

  • I don't even know if it ever got released.

  • The person making the video decides to open it up

  • right in the middle of the office floor.

  • Just sort of like, oh here's this

  • cardboard box and oh man, here's a butt.

  • And everyone's like looking over from the balconies,

  • people are crowding around it, and all of the sudden

  • we realize it's not just a model of a butt, it moves.

  • It's an electronic butt.

  • It vibrates, it jiggles.

  • Wah wah wah wah wah wah wah.

  • Everyone's just mesmerized like wow,

  • they can make this but they can't cure cancer?

  • And you know, it was a nice looking butt.

  • Probably pretty famous butt.

  • I mean I've never heard of her, but.

  • That was just Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock.

  • Day in the life of a BuzzFeed employee.

  • Really this was probably a pretty

  • tame story all things considered.

  • (calm music)
