Andrew Callaghan, the original creator of this popular YouTube channel ‘All Gas No Brakes’ recently made a surprising post about what has happened to the show.

Even if you haven’t heard of All Gas No Brakes, you may have seen one or two of the channel’s videos due to huge popularity across social media. However, Andrew posted on Instagram (on 9th March 2021) about no longer being associated with the show. Here’s everything we know about the show and what has happened.

History of All Gas No Brakes on YouTube

An independent journalist Andrew Callaghan created this YouTube show called All Gas No Brakes in which he traveled around the United States conducting interviews in various events.

He has covered various music festivals, protests, and conventions throughout the states and his surreal and funny videos have gained this channel over a million subscribers and more than 71 million views as of March 2021.

Nic Mosher and Evan Gilbert-Katz are his colleagues in this journey who work on camera, audio, video editing, etc.

This channel also has a Patreon page where you can get a subscription to watch full and uncut episodes of this show.

Andrew Callaghan’s post on Instagram

On 9th March 2021, Andrew posted on his personal Instagram a photo and a caption that shocked the fans –

I am no longer associated with All Gas No Brakes.
I no longer receive any of the Patreon crowdfunding, YouTube monetization or any other show income.
Nic and Evan, who lived in the RV and created the original show material, are also no longer involved.
We have no control over the accounts or future of the show.
When was 20, I wrote a book called ‘All Gas No Brakes’ about hitchhiking around America as a teenager. At 21, I pitched the idea of a video-based road show to a production company, who loaned me an RV to make videos and explore America with my best friends.
I was ecstatic, who I signed an employment contract without reading it.
Lesson learned.
Thank you for supporting me these past years. It’s been the time of my life. I can’t wait to show you guys what I’m doing next.
This is not the end ..
It’s only the beginning to a bright, independent future for the team.
I love y’all.
– Andrew

What happened to All Gas No Brakes?

The hosts have not revealed the details of the contract but it seems that the hosts of the show did not own the channel. They had signed a contract with the network called “Doing Things Media“.

Without fully reading the contract where it states that the ownership lies with the network company, Andrew had signed the contract and with it, he gave away the rights to his own show.

What led to this sudden realization is unclear but the hosts have all cut ties with the company and now only the network owns the show without Andrew and crew.

Since this post, a lot of people have commented that they are unsubscribing to the channel as all the proceeds go to the company and not the hosts who have worked so hard.

So who will join this show and continue the journey? Will you be following them to find out?
