  • i'll sue coca cola....5 millions for absence of coke and 2 for the missing cola nut. then anheuser busch for daring to call their colored piss "beer",

  • Ronny Chieng used to be funny pre Justin Bieber era.

  • Huh? What are you talking about with organic? Nothing like that is mentioned: www.truthinadvertising.org/tgi-fridays-potato-skins/ Why bother adding that word to the story? Was it too boring or something?

  • He's hot

  • You’re selling a mysteryyyyyyy 😂

  • Damn this guy is better than Trevor Noah himself. Haahahahahahahahahah

  • All I can think is that I have to move your hair from your forehead. I can hardly listen anything you say

  • Never realized these kind of ignorances still exist. Maybe the dumb morons should get free college tuition instead.

  • Hilarious 😂 but stop addressing the stupid people of America as "America". We're not all that dumb 💀

  • Has anyone thought of just asking for there money back???! Lol people want 5 million for that lmfao !!! Those are leaches

  • So is the only difference between spring water and filtered water a label? And when we taste the difference between different brands of water.. is that just a placebo effect?? I don’t want to live on this planet anymore...

  • Smart water went to Stanford not MIT. Get your facts straight lol

  • Litigation is as much part of American culture as apple pie.

  • What’s up with his stupid hair

  • MERICANS....

  • This is a stupid bit. The lawsuits are not frivolous. Somebody has to stand up these large corporations that lie to its consumers. Godiva is indeed misleading from consumers that it's chocolate comes from Belgium. TGI Friday's is completely duping its customers by selling potato skins which aren't really potatoes. And, Poland Spring is indeed duping its customers by selling water that is ordinary well water. Instead of class action lawsuit firms suing these large corporations, why doesn't the government take a stand and sue these large corporations? This is truly absurd.

  • I don't care if the people suing companies get any money out of their lawsuits, but I am completely in favor of companies being punished and fined for misleading advertising.

  • Fun fact: The lady who sued Mcdonalds was actually severely burned by the coffee. She only sued because they refused to pay for her hospital bill.

  • I’m so glad that they didn’t talk about the McDonalds coffee law suit, because that poor woman was in the right (I thought she was crazy until I watched Adam Ruins Everything about it and felt terrible)

  • Ronnie...my guy...comb

  • A well draws water from the same place that springs get there water. Except there's nothing to poop in the water.

  • لغمن مغشوش

  • The thing is -- most of these lawsuits aren't originated by an individual. It's plaintiffs' lawyers walking up and down grocery store aisles figuring out what they can sue companies over. They then find someone who can represent the suit and claim "damages".

  • Also, the TGIF potato skins snacks have been around for years, too. Funny how this lawsuit comes about now. Probably been the same ingredients for years, too.

  • Americans are so stupid omg no wonder the country is falling apart. One more trump presidency and this country will be embargoed by every other part of the world for being too stupid. Hahahahaha.

  • Y because we don't beleave in eating dogs

  • It seems quite some people here want to sue Ronny for 5 million, because of his hairstyle. Huh?


  • The US has by far the most idiotic laws in the entire world, when a random person can sue a company for millions of dollars for a logo or similar. I´m sure the persons doing this went through an absolutely horrible ordeal and had to spend years in therapy to get over it. So yeah... well worth a few million in compensation, poor idiot.

  • Asian dude so funny

  • Oh America

  • Ronnie is the best

  • Cut that hair now!

  • The one that cracks me up, is the story about a woman, who bought a (paper) cup of coffee in a fast food restaurant, drove off in her car WITH A CUP OF PIPING HOT COFFEE WEDGED BETWEEN HER LEGS and successfully contested in court, that the restaurant had not added a disclaimer on the cup not to do what she did, when she inevitably scolded herself. As painful as that undoubtedly was, it is self evident that your genital area is generally not the best place to store a cup of hot liquid. Her case would have been dismissed in my country.

  • The Poland Spring one actually has some merit. It says it's Spring water

  • Lolest!

  • Frigging awesome!

  • Hate to see Ronnie walking thru a supermarket and reading the labels.

  • This guy is not funny

  • Yea and I was shitting radioactive blood. Fuck off and die. All of you.

  • Godiva is made in Hershey Pennsylvania

  • ahh first world problems

  • Ok

  • This is almost as dumb as that time a guy broke into another mans house, tried to rob him, got injured, then sued the homeowner for his bills/pain and suffering. And won.

    • There was also a guy that broke into someone's house and got locked in the garage while the family was on vacation. He sued and won.

  • But shouldn't we be holding corporation accountable for lying to us? Setiously wtf is potato skins made of if its not potatoes. These are not frivoulous lawsuits these are corporations actively gaslighting people because we have the audacity to ask that they stop lying to us. This same bullshit happened when that poor woman sued mcdonalds over the hot coffee. Try actually reading the full context of the story. She got 3rd degree burns and had to be hospitalized. Mcdonald set up a smear campaign making it look like a silly money grabbing lawsuit when in fact all she wanted was her medical bills paid and for them to agree to serve coffee at a reasonable temperature.

  • 5 million dollars because of potato skins? That’s (one of) the problem(s) with American law suits: the judges should just send those people home with a warning because of wasting the justice system‘s time

  • I'm suing my mom, she told me I'm ugly and it turns out I'm beautiful. You know the damages that cause? I could've gotten more women.

  • You have to have opninig not straight up may chinesis love i dono we love the earth

  • I appreciate that Reading was pronounced correctly, twice, at about 0:40 :)

  • Can't wait till Ronny has his own show. I think he'll do well.

  • What is this show? Minorities stereotype and judge all Americans.

  • CVS got me my flu shot.

  • 2:12 home boy kills those hard Ls. Props.

  • Everybody wants 5 million dollars that's all.

  • To be fair poland spring literally says its spring water...

  • What's up with Ronnie's hair ? SMH ,,it seems he is covering something on his forehead

  • Honestly he is not funny. He is just blatantly rude.

    • I told the people in Michigan that Poland springs water comes from a well and they told me to go fuck yohrself... Comedy gold

  • Wack

  • “America has a problem “. Really?. I think we figure that out with this president we have.

  • Running Ruining Wrongs with Ronny.

  • The one thing that's stupid for sure is that smug hairstyle. 😂😂

  • I still find this funny but remember that "stupid lawsuits" are a hurtful stigma. Lawsuits are one of the few defenses people have towards big corporations who will cut corners to save money and misinform by any means they can find as long as it lures you to buy their product. If you still wanna be entertained (I know I do, that's why I'm watching the daily show :D) but wanna know more, go to uz-tv.com/tv/video-KNWh6Kw3ejQ.html . The full episode can be found on truetv or perhaps youtube or google :) the show is super funny, but this clip takes a turn to the serious ;)

  • Sadly, Lionel Hutz's lawsuit against "The Never-Ending Story" is starting to look a lot more viable nowadays

  • Based on back when I used to work for cvs, there were no private employee breakroom toilets. Just the disgusting public ones.

  • America has its trousers on backwards.

  • Use me as a bring back ronny's hair button

  • Can I sue his hairstylist?

  • i was under the impression that the water people were suing because the water was sourced from a well that specifically was contaminated with all sorts of toxic chemicals and also lots of poop from various sources so like :/ i kinda get it, but at the same time, nestle did purify that water and last i knew, nobody got sick from it, so [shrug]

  • I love Ronny 🤣🤣

  • It's cause people don't read

  • sorry but American chocolate is rubbish and taste nothing like real chocolate

  • Belgium is East of England across the channel, north of France, south of Netherlands. Geography is easy. I’m American and I can do it.

  • I wonder if I can get rich by suing Ferrero for lack of real Butterfingers?

  • 너는 음식이 아니니?

  • Is KFC fried in Kentucky? Is it even from Kentucky I'm gonna sue, Starbucks, they're coming!!!

  • Haha

  • I thought cvs's water was under the gold emblem brand.

  • Ill sue coke bc it isnt coke iykwim

  • I bought a bottle of gator aid and there’s no gators in it I’m gonna be so rich

  • Sue big corporations.

  • Is strange how Trevor hates America so much yet chooses to live here, perhaps it is the millions of dollars a year that he is paid he and yet he is always complaining about wealth inequality here. I really hope he actually donates his own money to help and not just criticize others who have much much less then he does.

  • I really enjoy Ronnie Chang!

  • *Do YoU AlSo tHInK CHIPotle iS MaDE oUt Of CHIPS?*

  • Trevor's show is awesome.

  • I'm pretty sure that the labels of these products had this information on them. What ever happened to self accountability?

  • I'm impressed you didn't even bring up the Great White Hope President Donald J Trump good job

  • Yeah talk about people suing Chick fil a

  • Americans, please choose your battles wisely.

  • That's one of the things that needs a serious overhaul in this country, our judicial system and when some dumb fuck shows up in a courtroom with one of these stupid ass frivolous law suits, hurl them and the money hungry prick lawyer who represents them in jail with the real bad people for about 90 days, they'll straighten up.

  • Best ronnie vid😂😂😂😂😂😂👏👏👏👍👍👍

  • What next? An American suing England because spotted dick doesn't actually contain spotted dick?????

  • Lol this was great


  • Ahahahajahahahahah Wtf happened to your hair Ronny ahahahahahha

  • Keep watching the puppet show sheeple. Pay no attention to the men behind the curtain who own you through debt based banking. Remain ignorant. CONSUME. PAY. DIE. SLAVE.

  • wait until they realize that cocoa is planted on asian countries LMAO. sure, it was produced to become packaged chocolate in Belgium and swiss, but COME ON PEOPLE.

  • Everything Is Stupid - America Has a Problem with Food

  • It's been interesting seeing how Ronnie's English has progressed. I was always able to understand him anyways and he's hilarious but it's pretty obvious how much better he's getting and it helps his delivery.

  • I’m suing every restaurant because chicken tenders doesn’t come from the tenders of a chicken😂

  • "Poland Springs" water comes from a town in Maine called "Poland Springs", which were named after the springs that the town has (or maybe had?). It's not really false advertising.
