Sam's NOT Having It is a video directed by, written by and starring Brandon Rogers. The video was released on 15th February 2016, and as of 17th February 2016, has amassed almost 450,000 views. The video has been heavily praised, with users quick to point out the links between the video and others. The video surrounds the life of a man called Sam and his roommate Donna.
The video starts with 38-year-young Sam introducing himself and showing the camera man around his house. While touring the house, he shows the camera some of his poses which incorporates items around the house (such as counter-attack, hat-time and pillow-party).
As they leave the house, Sam opens the front door to find his elderly roommate, Donna, whom he locked out. Donna, angry at being locked out, rants about Sam's treatment of her.
Sam reveals that he has "demons" in his head, but that Jesus is his "helmet". He also shows the camera his collection of stained glass lamps, while Donna states that she collects salmon, which is represented by a speargun.
Sam talks about how he used to be a ball-pit supervisor until he quit due to an "hypodermic needle" presumably stabbing him. Back at home, Sam sorts through the mail, revealing that Donna has a parole officer and relies on food stamps. He and Donna get into an alteration with Sam calling Donna an "asshole", and Donna telling the camera that the glass of milk Sam is drinking isn't actually milk.
Later, Donna tries to play a card game with Sam, but it is obvious that he doesn't know how to play, mistakingly showing his cards to Donna and dropping his deck. However, Sam gets offended when Donna knocks down the small house he made out of his cards.
Sam tells the Camera that in his spare time, he makes workout videos for mentally disabled people, which the audience is shown a series of clips from. He also shows a photograph from his performance for kids with cancer (whom he refers to as "sweet, beautiful orbs").
Meanwhile, back in the house, Donna is seem polishing her speargun collection, and repeating how much she loves the objects, but begins to treat them with sexual pleasure, much to the disgust of Sam
Other clips in the video show Sam riding his hoverboard around the city and crashing it when riding around the store. He also rides in between two gay men kissing (Diesel and Kevin, from "Angry Office Christmas Party"), calling out to them that he's "doing God's work". Later, he gets stuck in a rocket kiddie ride, and comments on balloons, Chinese lanterns, and apple kiddie rides being orbs (orbs being an obsession of his, it appears).
A series of clips show Sam asking the cameraman to edit out certain clips, including tripping and knocking over a disabled man while riding his hoverboard, falling down the stairs, and accidentally falling head-first into a trash can in the street.
The video ends with Sam saying how "average" he is, before eating a leaf from a tree. The credits roll while more clips from Sam's workout video play in the background.
