Burnie Burns - Rooster Teeth co-founder, filmmaker, and producer - has never been afraid of bending the rules. He chats with Ed and Rachelle about his runaway parents, and the legal loophole that helped him buy his Tesla. Burnie also discusses how he survived "The Amazing Race," what the differences are between traditional celebrities and YouTube stars, and how an email address spurred his career into starting an online empire.
LESSONS FROM BURNIE:
- Follow your dream.
- Small steps make a difference - like taking caps off water bottles.
- You never know where life is going to take you.
