Video: history of the entire world, i guess

It’s not often I’m so excited to see a video pop up in my subscription feed on YouTube.

After seeing The History of Japan by bill wurtz a few months ago, and being astonished at how quickly 9 minutes seemed to pass by, I was excited to see if there were any other other similar videos. At the time, I was disappointed to not find any.

This has now changed! “history of the entire world, i guess” is nearly 20 minutes long but it felt like I only spent 3 or 4 minutes watching it. It is so enjoyable.

I implore you to watch this video when you have the time. It is so good. I cannot recommend it enough.

It is not surprising in the least that it has smashed the record for the most upvoted post of all time on reddit.com/r/videos.
