  • This is the only video by genius that I enjoy watching

  • Daddy, I found you!

  • I think people confused the two sexual references in different context. Before he made sexual jokes which was what created part of the filthy Frank and pink guy characters but the line "Can it be one night?" Refers more or so to a reference saying something along the lines of a one night stand. It's more of a serious request than a joke, as if he expects something and he wishes he was cool enough to actually expect something rather than say it but know that people are just gonna laugh it off.

  • I love this, the other verified genius videos are trash
