Alfie Deyes Does a Mad Libs Video, Featuring a Water-In-Mouth Twist

Alfie posted a video with his friends Marcus Butler and Jim Chapman. “I get paid to hang out with them, they are not really friends,” he joked.

He introduced the Mad Libs challenge, with a twist. “We are going to be doing Mad Libs… Both of you have to have water in your mouths. Here you go. And I am going to read you a story.”

Alfie defended himself. “Have not seen your video? Just seen my friends do it a few years ago.”

He attached screenshots of Shane Dawson and Tyler Oakley’s Mad Libs videos – although they didn’t do it with the water-in-mouth twist.

Why Might Joe Santagato Think Alfie Copied Him?

Joe Santagato does a version of Mad Libs combined with a water-in-mouth twist.

Here is one such video from June.

Here is another from two weeks ago.

However, it might also be likely that Alfie saw the Sidemen’s version of the challenge instead, which was posted five days ago.

However, the Sidemen credited Joe Santagato in the description of their video.
