Notable Examples

Fall Out Boy

Answer Time's launch on June 8, 2015, was an answer time with Fall Out Boy. The announcement post of the Answer Time, featuring a picture of Pete Wentz, gained 37,000 notes.[1]

The answer time began, "hey dudes we are about to start answer time."[2] Questions were answer by Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump.

Selected Answers:

how many fedoras does patrick own???

Surprisingly not many.

What is your favorite animals? i know joes favorite animal is a kiwi bird i think. mine would be a dire wolf or andy hurley.[4]
What's the meaning of life?

Hugs! And Star Wars.

What are Joe and Andy like?

great dudes. not sure if this is a serious question or not so im gonna answer seriously :) andy is into veganism, comics, crossfit, and coffee- basically any city we go to those are the things he gets into. he is the quietest one in the band but when he speaks up it is always important.

joe knows more about guitar gear than almost anyone i know. in the studio he is the guy that works on the actual sonics of fall out boy the most. he has a portrait tattoo of his french bull dog on his leg that is pretty amazing.[6]
How long did it take for "Thanks Pete" to get old?

A day? Half a day?

Did Disney ask you to write a song for Big Hero 6 or did you write it first and they ask to use it? Was the inclusion of your song everything you hoped it would be? Anyone have a favorite character in the movie? disney asked us to come in a talk to the directors so we did that…. and we discussed the scene and what our song would attempt to do. then we went home and wrote and sent it to them- it was a back and forth from there. it was interesting to be a part of because our song was just a small part of a bigger thing and the challenge to just be a part of the fabric. it was a really cool experience. and i think hiro would be my favorite character- the rage and empathy and love he feels is so relatable to me. pw[8]
What do you think of people calling you "emo dads," emo dads?

I still hate the word emo


Captain America

Buzzfeed hosted an Answer Time to promote Captain America: Civil War. It coincided with the release of the film's second trailer. Four of the film’s main actors (Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Robert Downey Jr., and Chadwick Boseman) and both directors (brothers Joe and Anthony Russo) were on site at BuzzFeed headquarters to answer questions, and they were promptly GIF-ed upon arrival.

Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford's Answer Time on March 21, 2016, promoting the Digital HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.[10]

The answer time began with a gif of Harrison[11]

Selected Answers:

[hanfucksluke] asked: Do you ever watch movies that you've starred in before?

Every once in a while, but not for fun.

- Harrison Ford[12]

The post gained over 100,000 notes. Reactions:

  • I literally cannot believe Harrison Ford just read the username “hanfucksluke” with his own two eyeballs[13]
  • The user name is what he was responding to[14]



“Okay so this question comes from HanfucksLuke”


“So this comes from username Han… uh, okay, let me just, wait… Han does a thing with Luke”

“Is that the real username”

“No it is not”

“What’s the real username”


“Ah. Okay so I’m gonna answer this question” [15]
  • he’s known that han/luke exists since 1977 so i think he’s okay[16]
  • Harrison Ford had Han/Luke porn thrown on his lawn in the 80s, I doubt he even looked twice at that.[17]
  • the fact that harrison ford saw a question from someone with the url hanfucksluke and was like Yes i’ll answer this one please……….. [18]
  • happy pride month to the person with the hanfucksluke url who sent in a q&a question that harrison ford read[19]
Are you and John Boyega best friends?

Whatever John says…

- Harrison Ford[20]
We know Indiana Jones hates snakes, but what about you, Harrison? What do you think about snakes? Love 'em? Hate 'em? Ugh-get-'em-off-me?

No, I don’t mind snakes at all. Next to John Boyega, they’re almost my new best friends.

- Harrison Ford[21]
If the cast of the force awakens was stuck on an island, who would be the leader and why?

I would be the leader. Just cause. Although we’d end up having to listen to Carrie because if Mama’s not happy, nobody’s happy.

- Harrison Ford[22]
who's cuter, you or daisy ridley?

Daisy Ridley. But it’s close.

- Harrison Ford[23]
How do you feel about the ending in The Force Awakens? (I myself am heartbroken)

I think it’s a fitting use of the character. I’ve been arguing for Han Solo to die for about 30 years, not because I was tired of him or because he’s boring, but his sacrifice for the other characters would lend gravitas and emotional weight.

- Harrison Ford[24]
