Rob Dyrdek is the Willy Wonka of our generation. He may not have a purple coat and a big silly hat, but he does have a factory that cranks out dreams. MTV’s popular show, The Fantasy Factory, features Rob and his partners in crime (Chris "Drama" Pfaff, Christopher "Big Black" Boykin, Scott "The Big Cat" Pfaff, Chanel West Coast, and Sterling "Steelo" Brim), making fantasy become reality in a humble warehouse in downtown Los Angeles.
Any show that begins with, “Please do not attempt to perform any of the stunts or activities in this show, as they are dangerous and can lead to serious injury,” is probably going to be good. Rob Dyrdek controls the action from a giant laptop where he shares, with his cast of celebrity research assistants and co-stars (Steelo Brim and Chanel West Coast), the best—and by best we mean worst—examples of Internet idiocy.
