ABOUT TEAM RAR

WHAT IS TEAM RAR?

Team RAR is a collective of friends that create epic content of their adventures, challenges, experiments, and daily life. We believe nobody should ever really grow up and through our content, we strive to challenge the impossible and inspire our audiences to go against the grain.

The word “RAR” was inspired by the latin term “rara avis”, a rare bird, a one of a kind person that stands against the grain. This encapsulates the genesis of each member of Team RAR as we have each abandoned conventional career trajectory to create something on our own. “RAR” also doubles as an acronym for “Rare And Ridiculous”.

We value collaboration and teamwork. This is apparent in all of our content, both from the production and frequent appearances in each others videos. However, we also spend our time hanging out beyond the set. We’re friends, we’re business partners — we’re a team.
