Ran and Jaden: The New Drug on YouTube - Raymond Helkio - MyGayToronto
Ran and Jaden: The New Drug on YouTube 7 December 2017.
Ran met Jaden while studying theatre at York University and last year they decided to co-create a Toronto web series starring themselves but as quippy, arrogant gays. You know the ones, they are hard to please, self-righteous and usually in the midst of some sort of drama. This superficiality is what makes Ran and Jaden so funny because it plays on far-fetched gay stereotypes in a way that rings true.
The first show I saw was episode 2, Mugged and while it was twisted and funny, it really didn't grab me until later in the day when I had an overwhelming itch to down another episode. By the end of the week I had consumed all six from their first season and I was left jonesing for more of these flawlessly flawed characters. Watch here.
