(girl screaming) – It’s a fish with an eye and a mouth! (kids screaming) (quirky music) – [Kids] Hello! – [Host] What’s going on, you guys? – Um, wait, what’d you ask? – [Host] Do you know why I
brought you all here today? – Chinese New Year! – [Host] Ding, ding,
ding, ding, ding, ding. – Knew it! I’m a rabbit. – [Host] What does that mean? – Oh, uh, I think it has something to do with, like, the month that, like, each month that you were born. – [Host] Okay, so Ethan’s talking about something called the Chinese Zodiac. – I have no idea what I am. – I’m the water dragon. – [Host] So, do you guys know
what Chinese New Year is? – It’s like a new year, but for Chinese? – Well, I guess, like,
there’s no fireworks, but you do have bigger dinners. Obviously there’s, like,
the best Chinese food, and you just get together with
friends and family, so, yeah. – [Host] Do you celebrate
Chinese New Year, Ethan? – Yeah, I do. – [Host] It’s all about removing the old and welcoming the new. – That’s sad. – [Host] Why is that sad? – Because, like, everything,
all it goes bye-bye and into the dust, and
you’re like, “See ya!” – Can we get to the food already? – Yeah!
– Ooh, I’d love to. – [Host] Does anybody know how to say close your eyes in Mandarin? – (speaking Chinese) – (attempting to copy what
Ethan said in Chinese) (kids laugh) – [Host] That sounded close to me! Close your eyes! – Smells good!
– It smells so good. – Mmm.
– I wanna open my eyes. (kids cry out) – I love, I love that. – [Host] The first dish
I’m going to introduce are the dumplings. – [Clara] Yum! – [Host] Grab a dumpling,
put it on your plate. – Yaa. – A dumpling. – Mmm, I like this stuff. – They should, like, make
a chocolate outside layer and then put chocolate, like,
pudding in it and stuff. – [Host] Okay, I gotta steal one dumpling. Sorry, you guys. – No! – No, you can’t! – Our territory!
– No, you can’t! – [Host] We’re gonna move
on to this next dish, which I want you guys to try, which are the Longevity Noodles. Also known as Chang Shou Mian. Ethan, am I pronouncing that right? Or not at all? – Mmm, well, for the accent, not at all. Um, no offense, but, um, I’ve never heard of them, so. – I swallowed it whole. – [Host] GG, what are you doing? – Ahhh. (Clara laughs) – [Host] You know how
we were talking about the Chinese Zodiac earlier? – Yeah.
– Yeah. – [Host] So, this year is the
gonna be the Year of the Rat. – I saw a red raccoon once. Not the same. – [Host] In honor of the Year of the Rat, we are going to release
10 rats into the studio. – What?! (kids screaming) No, no, no, no! – Do it, do it, do it! – [Host] Okay, okay,
I’m not gonna do that. Chill, chill. I wouldn’t do that (laughs). – I wanna do it. – [Host] Let’s move on to the next dish, which is the steamed fish. (kids screaming) (GG screaming) – Ow! – [Host] Okay. – But it’s a fish with an eye and a mouth! We’re not gonna eat– – [Host] Oh, you’re
gonna eat it, all right. – No, no, we are not. – So, at the same time. – Okay. – Everyone! – Okay, I’m in. (kids screaming) – [Host] One, two, three.
– Three. (kids screaming) – It’s disgusting. – It’s bitter. – But, hey, we shouldn’t say, like, really, really disgusting, because people eat this. – I know. I said no offense, it’s kinda disgusting. – [Host] All right, we’re gonna move on to the next dish, which is in those little cups. It’s called Nian Gao. – [Ethan] Oh, I know what that is. – [Host] Ethan, am I saying that right? – Yeah. Except for the accent. Nian Gao. – Nao Gao. – How do you dig into this? – It’s, like, a little sweet, not sour. – Like really sticky Jell-O.
– Yeah, yeah. – Like the stickiest Jell-O you ever had. – How do I get this off? Get off. Get off! – [Host] We’re gonna move on to the last thing on the table. – Now let’s all take an
orange from the bottom. (kids laugh) – Timber! – [Host] I have one last
thing to give you guys. – I’m gonna guess, um, ice cream? – [Host] And open your eyes. – (gasps) Oh, I know what these are. In Chinese, we call them Hong Bao. – [Host] This is Hong
Bao, like Ethan said. Or known as Red Pockets, sometimes. And they’re full of lucky
money to give to kids. – It’s a one-dollar bill. – [Host] Okay, is that
not enough for you, Clara? (GG laughs) – It’s one dollar! – You put it together, it’s
only, like, four dollars. – Take my little money (laughs). – [Host] What was your favorite part of Chinese New Year, you guys? – Eating food! – [Host] But which food? – [GG] Definitely not that. – Dumplings!
– Dumplings! – [Host] Do you wanna teach everybody how to say good-bye in Mandarin? – Um, (speaks Chinese). – (speaks Chinese) – (speaks Chinese)
– (speaks Chinese) – (mumbles with mouth full) (Ethan laughs) – [Kids] (speaking Chinese). – That’s five in Chinese. (host laughs) If you didn’t know.
