We Filled the World with 100 Trillion Orbeez (Sorry)
Uploaded: November 13th, 2020
This is ultimately, without a doubt, the worst idea we have had, as plant life cannot sustain itself when it is covered in orbeez. Also human life. It can't do that either.

Behind the Receiver
This is a video that we sort of filmed twice, although the first time was completely different and altogether inferior. The first shoot was unscripted and had the orbeez being dumped out of a dump truck already activated. It made no sense, wasn't funny and I couldn't get a usable track on the footage, so we started from the beginning with an actual script.
The (first) idea for this video came to me when I watched a Blender Guru tutorial for rendering millions of objects. He was rendering donuts, because of course he was, but I thought "Hey, maybe we could do that with orbeez and cash in on their popularity?". Well, the popularity part didn't really work, but the effects did and it's still one of my favorite videos we've made, partly because of the effects and partly because of the writing.
Also the cover art is a copy/parody of Mr. Beasts thumbnail for the video where he filled his friends backyard with orbeez.
