Viral Vednesday: Kids Say the Darndest Things

Why are kids so much funnier than us? We at HLG Studios like to think that the content we create has a strong comedic backbone — and yet, one child’s quip will put us all to shame.

In their new “Faster is Better” campaign, children are asked very simple (non-branded) questions and are asked to answer in their own words. With only a little help from comedian actor Beck Bennet, the children create some great answers.
