If you haven’t heard of Bill Wurtz, I’ll let him introduce himself with his own video:
What you will notice immediately about Bill Wurtz from his videos is:
- He’s cool
- He has a silky smooth singing voice
- He has a keyboard and isn’t afraid to use every button
- Neon typography is his jam
- His animation style evokes jazzy PowerPoint slides
With 394 videos and counting, Wurtz categorizes his YouTube channel under “science.”
His bio on billwurtz.com reads, “accidentally came to earth. it’s weird”
With videos as short as 5 seconds, many of Wurtz’s videos claim to be comprehensive and then fall comedically short.
His 9 minute “history of japan,” however, is surprisingly thorough despite being mostly a joke. Donald Trump makes an eerie appearance at minute 4:00.
And if you watch all of his videos and have some questions for Wurtz, he’ll answer them on his “euqstions” page.
Here’s a good one:
“8.26.16 3:07 pm WHY DO YOU ANSWER QUESTIONS IN ALL LOWERCASE LETTERS?
why do you ask questions in all capital letters”
If this doesn’t feel like a rabbit hole already, I don’t know what is.
You could watch this playlist of every Wurtz upload and just sit back and enjoy the ride. But it’s also equally exciting to pick and choose from his archive based on video titles.
If you’re not cracking up after watching ten of these videos in a row, I’m not sure we can be friends.
Either way I “hope you have a good day,” just like Bill:
