I dunno, dude seems like a pretty awesome guy, has a ton of other shiat going on, and isn't doing this for youtube fame or anything.

Trying to one up yourself every year and this be your thing doesn't strike me as his style and the stress you would want in your life.

What else is he actually involved in? He seems super talented and I assume he's doing well enough to create these amazing videos, but I haven't really heard his name mentioned outside the September 21st videos.

// that and this video he did for "Ready Player One":

Back in Junior High I met a girl, Claudia.  Pretty as all hell and smart and first love type stuff.  When this song came out, I was convinced the during the "Baw-di-aw" chorus they were singing "Claudia."  Even sang it to her.  Made her smile.  Still sing it that way.

He is a comedian and comedy writer with some decent credentials.

I agree that he probably wont be back. The toll something like that takes on you is surprising.

I do a haunted garage every year and have been doing it for ~15 years. it takes a few days to set up and although it was fun at the beginning the constant pursuit for new things, doing a complete clean out of the garage and the small amount of time it gets used really makes one question if it's worth it. I continue because of the stories from parents and kids talking about how it's a rite of passage to be brave enough to go through the garage is heartwarming but I lost the will to do it for any other reason years ago.

For Demi I can't imagine the pressure of something like this. Millions of people judging you and it can also have a direct impact on his career. I understand why he wants to stop.

He basically swore off twitter for two years because he got a might too famous.

I wish him the best in his endeavors. He is incredibly creative and I expect we'll see his name in the future.

How can you not dance when you hear that song?

Was a screenwriter for 'The good Place'?  I'm not surprised he can do this kind of awesome-sauce.

I love these videos. It's awesome that they made NPR.

I wonder how expensive producing a "rotating room" scene would be. The concept's been around for a while, ever since that song and dance number by Fred Astaire in the movie Royal Wedding:

And here's an article on how it was done:

A couple years ago, Billie Eilish did this during a performance on Saturday Night Live. At the end, they switched to another camera that showed the entire contraption. Must've been fun for the audience to watch.

Yep. He's said before that he wasn't going to do any more, then he did.

Honestly, at this scale, the only reasonable way to continue would be to set up a nonprofit (The 921 FUNd) which would coordinate voleenteers and in-kind donations.

It benefits a charity, though.

Never was a cloudy day?

Must've been in the southern hemisphere.
