Joe and Caspar Hit the Road is a 2015 British comedy documentary film directed by Brian Klein and starring British YouTubers Caspar Lee and Joe Sugg.

The film follows Lee and Sugg (playing fictionalised versions of themselves) going on a road trip around Europe without any electronics or money. The couple take up a number of jobs, including learning to be gondoliers in Venice, working as deckhands on a super yacht in Antibes, working at Italian football club AC Milan and performing on Barcelona's Las Ramblas.[2]
