Anyone who watches YouTube is likely to be aware of the show Hot Ones, as presented by First We Feast. It's the show with hot questions and even hotter wings. For the web series hosted by Sean Evans, celebrities are invited to endure a gauntlet of questions while ingesting increasingly hot chicken wings. As the food gets hotter, so do the questions, and before long all barriers are broken down, revealing honest answers and hilarious soundbytes galore. Season 10 of Hot Ones recently kicked off in mid-September with actor Shia LaBeouf as the first celebrity guest to endure the "Wings of Death." His spot was then followed by actor, entrepreneur and tech investor Ashton Kutcher. Both interviews are highly entertaining and worth checking out.

While Hot Ones is always on the hunt for high-profile guests from the arenas of film, music and sports, there are two celebrities you won't find on the show this season, filmmaker Kevin Smith and actor Jason Mewes. As Smith explains it, his publicist had recently reached out to Hot Ones in the interest of booking Smith and Mewes for a Season 10 appearance. Unfortunately, First We Feast passed on the opportunity, leaving Smith and Mewes no choice but to create their own hot sausage-oriented interview show, Not Ones.

You can watch the full Not Ones interview with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes below:

For Not Ones, Smith interviews his best friend and partner in film, Jason Mewes. Along their road to Hot Wing Hell, Mewes tells amusing stories from his many fan-focused events, recants the tale of how he met his wife and JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT producer, Jordan Monsanto, and much more. Unfortunately for the Quick Stop slackers, Smith displayed the hot sauces out of order, resulting in the pair eating one of the hottest sauces way too early in the game. With a significant amount of damage to their guts already done, they both soldier on, beating back the Scovilles that have left many guests of Hot Ones crying and snotting into their complimentary milk.

The Not Ones interview is of course another way of promoting JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT, the long-gestating sequel to Smith's 2001 comedy, JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK. For the upcoming film, Jay and Silent Bob return to Hollywood to stop a reboot of the 'Bluntman and Chronic' movie from getting made. Returning to the Askewniverse for more snoogins, sappy speeches, and shenanigans of course are Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes as Jay and Silent Bob, respectively. Joining them for the highly-anticipated comedy are stars Shannon Elizabeth (AMERICAN PIE), Joe Manganiello (TRUE BLOOD), Harley Quinn Smith (YOGA HOSERS), Grant Gustin (The CW's THE FLASH, GLEE), Justin Long (JEEPERS CREEPERS, TUSK), Jason Lee (MY NAME IS EARL, MALLRATS), Craig Robinson (BROOKLYN NINE-NINE), Molly Shannon (SUPERSTAR, NEVER BEEN KISSED) and Brian O'Halloran (CLERKS, MALLRATS), among others.

JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT will crash land in theaters on October 15th.
