I got a surprise today!
Thanking all the awesome people who were in the video. Totally wasn’t expecting this haha. Thanks also to you guys who watch for being so much fun this past decade! Gah. 10 years!
Big hugs to Kristen and Rowan for organising this. You’re both such great people. I often forget Kristen works at Youtube because she’s become such a great friend and she shines nothing but generosity and kindness.
Rowan is… he’s ok. Just kidding
The people in this (in order) :
– Greta, Adele, and Sarah (skitbox) https://www.youtube.com/user/skitboxtv They’re hilarious, talented, lovely people and you’ll definitely see more of them and their amazing sketch group, Skitbox.
– James Grime (singingbanana) https://www.youtube.com/user/singingbanana James is a mathematician/magician/Enigma expert/fantastic tour guide/great guy. James taught me that the movie The Imitation Game was not historically sound and made me realise I should stop pretending to know everything about the enigma machine after watching a 2 hour movie about it. James though, he knows!
– Anna Akana https://www.youtube.com/user/AnnaAkana Anna is what I think I’d be if I were better haha. Anna is a comedian, actress, writer, director, fellow cat lady, business extraordinaire. We both got parking fines for each other. That’s what I tell myself.
– Louna Maroun https://www.youtube.com/user/Loopylady11 A singer/songwriter, comedian, vlogger, and all round nice person, Louna’s lounaverse is always such a pleasant stop!
-Phil https://www.youtube.com/user/WongFuProductions Phil… phil, phil, phil, phil, philllllllll. Phil and his team at Wongfu make amazing sketches, shorts, films, and now a show with Youtube Red. Phil…. phil, phil, phil, phil
– Derek https://www.youtube.com/user/1veritasium Derek makes incredible Science videos – you watch one, you’ll watch them all. He’s also one of my close friends who I miss terribly (move back home) and if you see fancy teacups in my videos, they’re ones he got me. This description really plays down how great his videos are.
– The Fine Bros (and their team!) https://www.youtube.com/user/TheFineBros my secret husbands! The Fine Brothers are … sigh, all sorts of lovely. They’re pioneers in what they do and such an iconic part of Youtube for me. They’re also incredibly supportive people in the community.
– Wes https://www.youtube.com/user/WongFuProductions Wes works with Phil and is one of the many talented parts of Wongfu. Wes also has his own clothing line! He also has a whole shelf dedicated to a figurine in this video.
– Blair and Marty https://www.youtube.com/user/mightycarmods These legends. One day, a zombie apocalypse will come and they’re the ones who taught us how to build a car for it. Two of the coolest guys out there who make really fun videos about cars are also talented musicians and good eggs.
– Hugh was one of the first Aussie youtubers I met and has been a great friend since. Hugh’s a talented archaeologist, teacher, and very funny guy.
– Theo https://www.youtube.com/user/superwog1 Theo and his brother make videos that make me laugh before I even load them. After years (and years) of following them we got to finally meet this year and they’re as nice as you could imagine.
– Joey https://www.youtube.com/user/JoeyGraceffa I don’t really know who Joey is? Juuuust kidding. Joey is two thumbs up. I was lucky enough to finally meet Joey a few years ago and he was kind enough to invite me to 4th of July at his house and I got to see he was even nicer in person than he was in his videos. He’s great.
– Jodie https://www.youtube.com/c/jodiefox Jodie is one of those people you meet and who immediately motivate you to be better, work harder, and do more. We met through work but have become friends (hopefully) and she has a cat that’s *whispers* cuter than mine. She’s also a cofounder of a shoe company that you should check out! They do vegan shoes too!
– Ami Yomato https://www.youtube.com/user/yamatoami Talk about mesmerising. The first time I watched Ami’s videos I felt like I had travelled to another part of the internet. On our last trip to London, Rowan and I got to meet Ami and it was just as magical as her videos are. Ami is one of my favourite channels.
– Grace https://www.youtube.com/user/graciehinabox girlcrush, adorkable Grace is unstoppable and every time you look up, she’ll be achieving something new. Her videos, books, show, and movies are only indicators of how delightful and talented Grace is.
– Wengie https://www.youtube.com/user/WWWengie Is it weird to say I’ve spent hours looking at pictures of Wengie? Yes? Too bad. Wengie is blowing up right now and all because of how hard she works to make fun and charming tutorials to share.
