In spite of my intentions, I’m defaulting again to somebody else’s videos rather than our own. Our planned videos were too planned (I promise we’re not that boring in real life), and spontaneous ones are understandably difficult to plan. If we come up with a good one, I’ll be happy to share.
In the meantime, I have a feeling you’ll enjoy the YouTube sensation known as Julian Smith. If you haven’t already met him, you’re in for a treat. We haven’t actually met him either but he makes us laugh regularly. This guy’s videos have literally millions of views, but believe it or not we have a 2nd degree connection to Julian. He went to high school with my husband’s youngest brother, who is getting married in a couple of weeks. Hey, I wonder if Julian will be at the wedding?
I haven’t watched all of his videos, but the worst I’ve seen so far is some mild potty humor and a little implied violence. When I say implied violence, this one comes to mind:
Natalie and Becca brought down the house when they did their own version of this skit for our church’s talent show a few months ago:
His sense of humor is so obvious yet off-the-wall.
Some phrases from Julian’s videos have become a part of our household culture already. That’s an honor usually reserved for Disney, etc.
I thought this one was great, but Perry was slightly less amused. Maybe it struck a little to close to home? Just sayin’.
Have you seen other videos by Julian Smith? Which is your favorite?
