One of the most unusual YouTube channels of the year came into existence with an expiration date. The brainchild of Unus Annus, gaming youTubers Mark “Markiplier” Fischbach (27.5 million subscribers) and Ethan “Crankgameplays” Nestor (1.8 million subscribers), will upload a video every day for a year. And then, at the end of the said year, YouTubers were going to remove the channel from existence.
Don’t bother looking at it It is already gone. Both Fischbach and Nestor are reportedly doing so that they can re-upload Unus Annus’ videos from the Internet, to maintain the sanctity of the collaboration.
“We don’t make fun of him when this kind of thing happens,” Fischbach said in a livestream, where he warns viewers not to host their own videos, lest they risk receiving a notice Pick up and possibly, destroy their own channel. .
Yunus Annas Channel held a variety of different schemes and hijinks, from cooking with sex toys to building an escape room. While some videos were typical YouTube fare – there was one instance where two YouTubers drank each other’s piss after filtering it – the fact temporarily gave the channel a different vibe than you’d normally see on social media platforms lets see. Notoriously, many YouTubers find it easy to obsess over numbers and have a growing fan following. If one leaves, they leave their channel active for the enjoyment of others. Some even come back after leaving. Others still do a big job about deleting their channels, only to rapidly pull in on viewers.
By setting a difficult limit for uploading and viewing content, Yunus Ennus does not operate in the same playground. This may explain why, in mid-November, more than 1.5 million people came together to watch Fischbach and Nestor live channels. It was such an event that some people set an alarm to see the ending, or tried to watch the last few weeks before looking as far away as possible.
“I firmly believe that the completeness of something cannot really be appreciated until it is finished,” said Fischbach in a post-mortem on the project.
“It was worth a year to work for a year,” he continued later. “That one second before we hit the delete button.” That last second – that was all. And now it’s over. “
Certainly, many people on social media are appreciating what this project means to them, and how they are going to celebrate their love for it.
I know it’s been a few days since the unusual announcement has ended on time, but I still want to thank you. This channel gave me great moments and memories. It taught me to accept death. I cannot fully explain my appreciation for the channel. Memento Mori. Anas Anas pic.twitter.com/omdisvRAzi

In the final 10 minutes before being removed, the pair got together in a black-and-white suit, while a timer rang on a television in the background. In the comments, seen on the computer screen, it confirms that they want to permanently delete the channel. Here, the two recalled their favorite moments from the entire effort, such as drinking coffee in the desert. While Fischbach made a name for himself with superb gaming videos, the YouTube personality was calm and reflective.
“You will be bragging rights for the rest of your life that you were here for.”
“It’s a little intoxicating, nobody will do it like us,” Nestor said during the project livestream. “Nobody. We are the first to do this job.”
I can transfer these comments, because despite everything, some people is Re-uploaded the video. Curiously, some of them promise to remove the re-upload after a short time. While most of the Phoenix seems invested in preserving the project’s intent, again these uploads are getting better because, not everyone manages to tune in on time. For example, a pair of top commentaries on the final 10 minutes of the video saw viewers stating that they had accidentally fallen asleep from the proceedings. However, it may be some time before Fischbach and Nestor arrive for the remaining copycat videos.
In the look back video of this project of Nestor, YouTuber teared his eyes as he talked about the now-deleted channel.
“I really think this was something that would go down on YouTube history and something that can’t be replicated,” he said.
“It teaches all of us that everything is temporary, and we have to get the most out of every second, because we’ll never get even a second,” said Nestor. “The clock, whether visible or not, is always ticking. always. You can not change it. You cannot try and negotiate for long. You have a finite amount of time. And we gave ourselves a year. And despite what 2020 was, we rolled with it. Because you have to. “
During reflection, Nestor admitted that on a video-to-video basis, some of the things that stayed on the channel might not look impressive on their own. But, he argued, it was more about the concept of making the most of what you have and when to let go. Fans, in turn, speak of the project in almost philosophical terms, or use it as a springboard to speak on difficult topics such as death.
Megan Leigh, who commented on Nestor’s video, says the project helped her navigate the recent death of her father, who died soon after the project was shut down.
“I talked to Mark and Ethan about conquering the fear of death, and I listened and let it go into my brain, and [I’m] I am happy, ”she wrote. “I finished Yunus Enes the day before I lost my father. You advised me that I never knew I would be needed so soon. Thank you.”
Perhaps that is why both Fischbach and Nestor can see the deleted channel in a spirit of melancholy. And Satisfaction.
“I think I’m better than I have ever been in creating stuff on YouTube,” Fischbach said in his post-mortem. “I know a lot of people are mourning … It was a matter of mourning, a matter of loss.”
