His youthful identity and years long love for America’s teens and internet culture has culminated in a NETFLIX Special that is not too late, it’s just right. It’s timely because NOTHING about the perils of these last 15 months is over for the mental health of EVERYONE who actively took care of the community through harrowing and painful isolation in front of a handheld screen. He gives us some hilarious joy and extreme wonder into his cinematic exploration, but what he really gives us is the brave and raw view inside. The thing that no one witnessed, we get to witness in him. Loneliness is hard to make entertaining, he gave us everything. Now the internet is serving it back at him.
Here’s the thing: You need to be ready to watch. The content warning is suicide, isolation, depression. The best place to watch is curled up on the couch on an actual TV. The best situation is to watch beginning to end with a loved one. It’s a musical. A really good musical.
One of my favorite ways the internet gives back is inspired and unique fan art. This is love in the best sense. This is time, dedication, and takes courage to even share. Inspiring.
