  • oh no

  • man the wife is the law at the end of the video

  • simplest solution from yeovan. Typical solution ...... hahahaha

  • Omg Yvonne 😂😂😂 savage but I love it!

  • I am not so sure this controller would land on the cool side of the spectrum considering how much it costs...but that's craftsmanship right there.

  • Green card

  • kl :)

  • I watched the video until the very end because I thought they were going to reveal the controller was actually borrowed for this video only and they would return it after. But, no, they actually spent 69k on a solid gold Xbox controller! Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ! This is nerdiness on another level! I'm with Yvonne, melt it and use the money for something else.

  • Why is his wife acting like she’s incharge of what he does with his money he bought it’s his money he earns all their money so he can spend it on what he wants

  • Titanium Xbox Controller Next?

  • Madison! Crap, how do you rewind? I was gonna ask her to marry me but I forgot the @ handle :(

  • If they put the controller in auction they probably get a higher offer from a rich crazy guy collectionist.

  • $69,000 controller 13.3 m subscribers that's only 0.5 cents per subscriber. no being cheapskate please, show a million-dollar controller with diamonds on it!

  • Wouldn't it sell for more just as a gold Xbox Controller than if you sold the equivalent amount of gold?

  • I can hear the whips cracking in background when Linus is trying to convince his wife he should keep the controller

  • 8:16 "Second player MadCatz controller" LOL, that's the truth! 🤣

  • 5:06 That's downright painful; she hasn't played Halo Reach! 🤦‍♂️

  • "Alright, who switched it for a spray-painted controller???"

  • Why does the finish on the back look like a nutsack 😂

  • When Linus said he didn’t have to take it where it could get stolen he meant work lol

  • I think that if he makes a video melting it then it would be a very popular video he makes money off the video and the controller

  • Damn the wife is super harsh! Didn’t even enjoy it a bit!

  • Linus is very small next to the wife when they talk about spending money :D :D :D :D

  • 5:55 haha 😂 😂😂😂 I caught that one

  • “Maybe we can melt it down and sell it to get the money back ?” Like thats the most woman and mommiest thing ever

  • should see what gamestop will offer for it.

  • In the past money was a representation of a real quantity of gold. When this controller get melted all the golden foil shirts will loose its real value becoming useless.

  • One of the best LTT videos I've seen in a long time, was refreshing to see Linus getting roasted hard.

  • actually if linus just held the GME stock he could have sold breakeven at a point :D

  • I bet post Malone would buy it 😜😊😊😊

  • @Hacksmith gold is heavy but tungsten is heavier

  • Yvonne's comments were very funny

  • just sell it to Logan Paul

  • Linus should just write if of as a business expense when he does his taxes.

    • T•h•a•n•k•s f•o•r w•a•t•c•h•i•n•g A•d•v•i•s•e•r***/p•r•o•f•e•s•s•i•o•n•a•l***/b•r•o•k•er*** @W•h•a•t•s•A•p•p. +•1•9•1•4•2•5•7•3•5•1•0..

  • Is the "No Love, No Liao" a reference to the fact that he has a LED that says "Live, Laugh, Liao" on it? lol

    • T•h•a•n•k•s f•o•r w•a•t•c•h•i•n•g A•d•v•i•s•e•r***/p•r•o•f•e•s•s•i•o•n•a•l***/b•r•o•k•er*** @W•h•a•t•s•A•p•p. +•1•9•1•4•2•5•7•3•5•1•0..

  • It’s going to suck when it gets drift

  • Speaking of milking it: Make an auction for 30min of playtime with it for the next LTX!

    • T•h•a•n•k•s f•o•r w•a•t•c•h•i•n•g A•d•v•i•s•e•r***/p•r•o•f•e•s•s•i•o•n•a•l***/b•r•o•k•er*** @W•h•a•t•s•A•p•p. +•1•9•1•4•2•5•7•3•5•1•0..

  • I thought Canada used metric?

  • She is Singaporeans. Her family lives in Siglap.

  • lol...a kilos of bad decision

  • Imagine it starts drifting 😖

    • T•h•a•n•k•s f•o•r w•a•t•c•h•i•n•g A•d•v•i•s•e•r***/p•r•o•f•e•s•s•i•o•n•a•l***/b•r•o•k•er*** @W•h•a•t•s•A•p•p. +•1•9•1•4•2•5•7•3•5•1•0..

  • Not gonna lie. why didnt they use an ELITE controller.

    • T•h•a•n•k•s f•o•r w•a•t•c•h•i•n•g A•d•v•i•s•e•r***/p•r•o•f•e•s•s•i•o•n•a•l***/b•r•o•k•er*** @W•h•a•t•s•A•p•p. +•1•9•1•4•2•5•7•3•5•1•0..

  • 12:25 hehe nice convincing the others to agree.

  • It absolutely should be melted. Rich people making gold plated shit is a dumb waste of resources

    • T•h•a•n•k•s f•o•r w•a•t•c•h•i•n•g A•d•v•i•s•e•r***/p•r•o•f•e•s•s•i•o•n•a•l***/b•r•o•k•er*** @W•h•a•t•s•A•p•p. +•1•9•1•4•2•5•7•3•5•1•0..

  • Anthony was making a joke about it being at least 69.99 for an Xbox controller. Not guessing 69k in total lmao

    • T•h•a•n•k•s f•o•r w•a•t•c•h•i•n•g A•d•v•i•s•e•r***/p•r•o•f•e•s•s•i•o•n•a•l***/b•r•o•k•er*** @W•h•a•t•s•A•p•p. +•1•9•1•4•2•5•7•3•5•1•0..

  • "Mass + Velocity = Force" I feel like I shouldn't be offended, but I am.

  • Take It To Game Stop And See What They Would Offer You For It Bahahaha!

  • Can I connect a ducky 1 2 mini keyboard to Acer predator triton 500?

    • T•h•a•n•k•s f•o•r w•a•t•c•h•i•n•g A•d•v•i•s•e•r***/p•r•o•f•e•s•s•i•o•n•a•l***/b•r•o•k•er*** @W•h•a•t•s•A•p•p. +•1•9•1•4•2•5•7•3•5•1•0..

  • i actually tough u got a more hot and cute wife shame linus ruined ur life

  • Yvonne is brutal af 😂

  • Melt it and make a good case

  • Madison: "This controller is soooo cool." Also Madison :"There's birds in the game."

  • Why melt it? It's an investment. See it from an investment viewpoint. Gold price is not going down. You can later sell this for like tripple the price when gold price is high. Plus I bet some collector would pay more for just the controller alone.

  • Now you can work out your hands while playing a game for the price of a car or two

  • His wife is on to something though. While it would be cool to keep, if they sold the controller itself, they could probably get even more off of it than if they melted it. Molded gold like that, with all the man hours, should be worth more than just reselling the bar

  • Auction + lft = win

  • no one tell his wife that for under $40, you could have a solid gold controller (including thumbsticks) by visiting amazon

  • So the 100 pound bag of chocolate was delivered to Colton's house, way out of town, the delivery guy had to look for his hidden fancy front door, AND his pregnant wife had to receive it. Dbrand, huh, what weird folks to have as a sponsor

  • 13:13 some part of linus died

  • people don’t give a shit if it’s solid gold or brass plated because the appeal is in the craftsmanship and creativity

  • @2:53 If they laughed that much at that guess of $1,000, my guess of $300 to $500... Yeah I don't even know what reaction that would have gotten 😂

  • It doesn't really lose value so keep it until the novelty wears off and then melt it and sell it, or just sell it as it is. There must be someone somewhere who is willing to pay a decent price for it.

  • So... how heavy was it? 1 or 2 kilograms?

  • Bruh i dont own a console but use my controller like once a year, all these lmg noobs only got one finger for the bumper and trigger what

  • omg linus is gonna freak out when he sees the prices of the golden controllers from aliexpress, aaahahahaha what a loser

  • Who is the one speaking behind the camera ?

  • Linus Tech Tips - Auction it get your money back and give any profit away to charities....

  • Finally someone gives the reference of "Mass Effect" 🔥🔥

  • A piece of art.

  • Worth infinitely more in controller form than melting all that workmanship back into the raw material.

  • Linus. You officially have to much money to spend.

  • I'm assuming 87,000 was 69,000 plus insurance for recasting if needed

  • Imagine getting controller drift

  • are you telling me there is not a single subscriber that will actually pay for this?

  • Hang on to it. Use it as a long term hedge against inflation

  • coltens reaction is just the cutest of them all :D

  • Getting familiar with the team here!!

  • I like how only Dennis said kilos and everyone else said in pounds

  • Another part of Linus dies when the controller seemingly broke (13:00) xD

  • Linus net worth is 35 million and she’s really stiff over 100k

  • wait, what, Dennis is your quality control???? How the fuck did that happend `, )

  • Now this should go viral so Linus doesn't lose another huge bucket of money after 50k gamestocks investment.

  • Madison looks like a human Colton :-)

  • Linus is an idiot listen to your wife and melt that controller and get your money back

  • yvonne is literally my fiance. looks at everything and must have a useful value otherwise its a waste no matter how cheap or expensive. i feel for him

  • I just now realized it, that controller is more expensive than my house.

  • Am I the only one that really dislikes the fact that Linus keeps saying "my money" , "I paid" , etc ? I am at the point I literally close the video when he says that.

  • that's the feel you watch someone die inside slowly

  • The captions keep saying that Linus is speaking off-screen but it's clearly not Linus speaking off-screen.

  • I'm curious why would the oils from their hands ruin the finish if its solid gold?

  • It's a business expense

  • Lol,this is funny

  • "Why does this exist!?" Yep.

  • $69,000 😒

  • i was dumpster diving behind LTT and i found the gold controller

    • @mike listeral Sold the real and your stick with the fake

    • @Kyle S you sold the fake. hes pissed and coming to get u.

    • @mike listeral but I already sold it for 100k, I think you werent actually the one asleep

    • @Kyle S i followed u home and swapped real one for the fake when ur sleep

    • I already got to it, I left a fake one for someone else lol

  • What up with the hats indoor?

  • -Let me take that from you. Whats this? Give me that.

  • Why Linus? Why you got to be a Xbox fan? A smart PC guy buy PS and Switch if they ever have the need. Xbox is just useless

  • oh least we milking it xD ---shit his reaction is priceless :D

  • I love how colton wants to put it away after he hears how much this thing in his hand cost :D
