Can I change the sentence to "I was on your Web site, and you have some pictures and videos of you guys that were partying like ******* animals"?? Is it still mean the same??
you said:
Yes, the meaning is the same, but that is less natural. If it were "guys" instead of "you guys", your relative clause would be fine.


"I was on your Web site, and you have some pictures and videos of guys that were partying like ******* animals"

"I was on your Web site, and you have some pictures and videos of guys partying like ******* animals"


1. Is this two sentences mean the same??
2. So which one is more natural??

They're both fine and both sound fairly natural to my British ears.;-)

1.Are these two sentences fine and sound fairly natural to you??

2.Can I use you guys that are partying instead of were partying, Is it ungrammatical??

Just leave 'that' and the verb 'to be' out. ;-)
