According to a statement provided to Variety, the film includes footage from Callaghan’s “wild RV trip across America in the months leading up to the Capitol Riot of January 6”. It’s a continuation of material he’s been uploading to Channel 5’s YouTube since April 2021, garnering millions of views per post. He’s covered several MAGA protests over the past year, as well as lighter coverage of a Utah rap festival, a Satanic Temple gathering, and various online personalities. Recently, he conducted Yeat’s definitive interview. And last week he posted an exclusive interview on his Patreon with the far-right radio host and Alex Jones – Jones’ first since a Texas jury ordered him to pay $49.3 million in punitive and compensatory damages to the parents of a first-grader killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre. (Jones proliferated a conspiracy theory that the massacre was a hoax orchestrated by the U.S. government to bring about legislation tighter on gun control.)
Prior to Channel 5, Callaghan founded and ran a similarly formatted YouTube channel called All Gas No Brakes, which ended abruptly when its parent company, Doing Things, pulled him from the show due to creative differences. And before that, while a student at Loyola University in New Orleans, he co-created an Instagram account called Quarter Confessions that instantly posted viral videos of eye-opening tourist testimonials in the city’s French Quarter. .
