This interview is so intriguing to me because it’s the first time Ethan has been faced with a rather large confrontation on live video , and he does not handle it well.
5:30 This is the first time we see Ethan portray that he feels bill is superior to him. They are talking about bullying and Ethan prepares to make a statement. Notice how he rubs his collar bone, indicating that he is a tiny bit uncomfortable but is embracing this feeling.
Listen to Bills reaction and then pay attention to ethans face, he realizes that what he just said is very controversial and he is PRAYING bill burr backs him up,QUICKLY because he knows If bill burr says it, it would be okay. He is essentially punching above his weight with this joke and he is looking for confirmation that it’s acceptable for him to say that. But when bill burr makes a disapproving noise, Ethan panics. You can see the panic in how he distorts his eyebrows,puckers his lips, and opens his eyes real wide, as if hes actually approaching imminent danger.
Ethan feels that he was left in the dust notice his fake smile and how fast his response is to bill. You can actually see the regret in his eyes as if he is thinking about the potential backlash that will soon come from his fanbase. He wants to get away from the statement he just made as QUICKLY as possible.Also notice the micro aggresions in Hilas face, she knows what just happened and she is hoping bill neutralizes the controversial comment ethan just made.
17:00 Ethan again tries making a joke but continues to looks for bills approval. What ethan is trying to do I play into bills frame and is trying to talk about things from the same mindset as him. This is confirmed by ethan’s reaction after bill disagrees.
Ethan is shocked when bill disagrees and even says “ I thought you were going to be down.” Which confirms that Ethan was trying to play into bill burrs frame and was not speaking from an authentic point of view. Pay close attention to what Ethan does next because it is VERY Intersting
When he opens up his body language, what he is trying to portray is “ fine, I don’t need to play into your frame, I’m confident without it.” By complimenting him, Ethan makes it known that he is readjusting his view of Bill, as not to disrespect him.
19:07 Fast forward two minutes, Bill is talking about how he got into the business.Watch closely to what bill says next and remember that ETHAN has brown hair,
“If I had brown hair I don’t think I would be in this business” Watch how Ethan touches his face, he knows he has brown hair and he knows that is going about to be potentially insulted.
What bill just did was so small that you may have missed it. Notice what bill does with his hand, he essentially POINTS toward Ethan while looking down to the right, which means he is having an internal dialogue with himself. In that moment he was thinking to himself “ I would end up like you ethan”. But Bill does not want to Blatantly insult Ethan so he decides not to go there, not YET
The interview for the next 20 minutes is very friendly and joyus, what makes the next situation so awkward and confrontational is Ethans reaction to how fast bill went from joking around to completely serious.
54:30 Ethan makes a joke, claiming bill is afraid. This is when Bill immediately shows that he is not kidding around in the slightest. Over the course of 10 seconds, the entire mood in the room changes. What went from a spacious conversation has turned into a complex maze that ethan now has to get himself out of.
Bill notices that he upset ethan, but he doesn’t feel comfortable enough to change the subject yet so to ease some of the tension in the room, he makes a joke about the current situation
54:59 Here we FINALLY see ethan standing up for himself, ethan adapts to the new mood and realizes that they are not joking around anymore. “ok, no, Im not crazy” Here we see ethan standing up for himself for the first time.
