Three of the stars of Austin's Rooster Teeth Productions family -- Burnie Burns, Gus Sorola and Gavin Free -- were guests Wednesday night on the Comedy Central late-night show "@midnight."

The show, hosted by Chris Hardwick ("Talking Dead"), features a series of hashtag games, meme quizzes and fast-paced Twitter-fueled comedy. Burns, Sorola and Free, stars of many Rooster Teeth videos and podcasts, held their own comedically, contributing to segments about Juggalos, a Kevin Durant meme, Japanese video games,  a "#WorseCollegeClasses" hashtag game and bad cosplay names. Gavin Free also made a very personal revelation about his anatomy about midway through.

Hardwick introduced Rooster Teeth as having the longest-running web series ever ("Red vs. Blue"), but Burns said, "That's like a backhanded way of just saying 'Old.' "

You can watch the full episode on a desktop browser here or view it on a mobile device with the Comedy Central app. (Warning: lots of adult content, but it's a lot of fun.)
