Fail Army

FailArmy to create original series for Go90

The comedy brand, which released an app in August, is pushing its content mobile, with 50 new episodes tagged for Verizon's video service.

FailArmy, the Jukin Media comedy brand that’s built a global audience from humorous — and sometimes cringe-worthy — videos of people at their worst is coming to Go90.

Jukin confirmed its new series, FailFive will launch on the new Verizon-owned video platform, though the company has not yet announced when the premiere episode will drop.

The FailFive series will consist of 50 three-minute episodes, with one episode released every week on the mobile-only video service (which launched earlier in October in the U.S.). Like most of the videos in the FailArmy franchise, FailFive will consist of aggregated “fail” videos from around the web (five videos per episode), with commentary from Chris Powers and Courtney Pauroso (who both star in another FailArmy series, Top Fails Breakdown).

Each video will follow a particular theme. Early episode themes include: “Five girls you meet in your 20s”; “Five reasons you didn’t make it to the club”; and “Five signs your cat is Illuminati.”

The content will be exclusive to Go90 in its first 48 hours before it is posted to the FailArmy Facebook page, according to a Jukin rep.

Go90 will also carry non-exclusive content from FailArmy, including its videos from YouTube and Facebook. However, FailFive will not appear on YouTube.

FailArmy has been steadily gaining followers since Jukin created the brand in 2011, with more than 8.6 million subscribers and two billion video views on YouTube. In an effort to bring more of its content to mobile, FailArmy recently paired with app-maker Victorious to create a dedicated FailArmy app, which launched in August.

In January 2015, the brand also expanded to linear, with the series World’s Funniest Fails (hosted by former NFL player and Expendables star Terry Crews) premiering on Fox. The second season is set to premiere in November.
