"Gus Johnson Hates Working At Smosh" (originally named "Ian's New Assistant (ft. Gus Johnson)") is the 17th Smoffice episode uploaded in Smosh on August 11, 2021.


Ian just hired a new assistant, and… is it just me or does this guy look a lot like Gus Johnson???

This video was shot with a very limited crew. All cast & crew followed all CDC and California COVID-19 precautions and filming guidelines.



Ian has anxiety issuse so hires Gus as his emotional support guy. He shows him to Damien, Courtney, and Keith, and Gus encourages Ian to punish the three with pushups.

Courtney and Keith are uncomfortable and are against Gus, especially Gus massages Ian to the point that Ian groans loudly. Meanwhile, Ian is more confident as Gus gives encouraging words to the Smosh President. In a Try Not To Laugh Challenge, Gus laughs when it should've been Keith's turn, and he spits water just after he drinks it. Gus fails to try to make Keith laugh as he should contractually be less funny than Ian. This makes Ian win the TNTL challenge.

Gus begins to break down in an interview, so Ian frees him by giving him a sock. This hypes him to think that he's good enough.

Ian giving Gus a sock is a reference to when Lucius Malfoy unintentionally freeing Dobby in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by throwing a sock that the elf catched.
