    Help with understanding the sentence in a YouTube video (1 sentence only).

    Hello, I've corrected my profile, I hope now it is OK. Sorry for asking the same question in two sections of the forum, I won't do that again.
    I am coming with the same question as in the thread closed last time.
    Recently I was watching some random video on YouTube, but could not understand one sentence (the exact words used). I understood the whole meaning of the sentence, just could not understand words used.
    Could someone help me with that? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZPESKbfsCo That's the link to the video. The sentence is at 4:40. 'Because at the end of your ____ ____ ____'. I cannot understand there. Subtitles are not accurate as well.
    Thank you for help.

    He says "Because at the end of your deathbed, guys, you'll not be asking the keys to your Ferrari ...".

    Your understanding probably wasn't helped by the fact that he pronounced "th" as "f" (relatively common) so it sounded like "deaf bed"!

    He is clearly not a native English speaker. "At the end of your deathbed" is not natural. We might say "When you're on your deathbed" or simply "On your deathbed". He also omits "for" after "asking" about three times.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you very much. Instead of 'guys' I heard 'guts', strange pronunciation. I knew that sentence construction was wrong first time I heard it. Once again, thank you.
