The reporter asks Ian what he wants to do now, and Ian replies that he wants to watch paint dry. The reporter joins him and continuously asks if the paint is dry. Eventually, Ian loses his temper, turns to the reporter and yells, "NO!".
After the ending, Barney tells the viewers to go to Smosh.com to watch the video bloopers and to buy the new shirt and Donut Massacre 64 poster, saying "If you don't go to Smosh.com right now, I'm gonna kill you in your sleep!"
According to an interview with Smosh, it turns out that this video took 36 and a half hours to edit, which is the longest the duo has spent editing without sleep.
This is the first Food Battle where the fans of Smosh got to vote for Anthony's food.
This is the first Food Battle where Anthony doesn't use a food that is shaped like a stick, though it is still a long food.
