Scavenger hunters: Your clue this week is in the video. -John

The boxes. They press in from all sides, growing ever closer. These cardboard fiends encroach upon John as he films, creeping up the walls. Slowly, slowly, slowly but surely, they climb. Blue walls give way to brown boxes. One day, there will be no room left. No *John* left. There will be only boxes. Only boxes.

I don't even think John knows what's in the boxes. He's just making light of them to hide his fear of the box infestation of unknown origins.

One of these days, Hank should hide in those boxes and surprise him. Would be hilarious. 😂

Well John, all i have to say it CONGRATS! You got your childhood dream job, and you have had a very successful career of introducing things to me and all of us. By "things" i mean: new ideas, concepts, people's a completely new way of living and reason to live, and i could not thank you enough for that. I always come to this channel for help and hope. Thank you.

The box breeding scheme seems to be a continued success.

I kind of like the fact that the vlogbrothers don't focus on making the editing fancy because it keeps an organic feel. Like buzzfeed has quality video editing sometimes, but it lacks quality content that the vlogbrother videos always have. Quality thoughts always win over quality video skills in my book.

I thought your dream job was to be an earthworm scientist?

I find it both exciting and scary that John's boyhood "dream job" is no longer a job. Young John probably thought movie introducers would be around forever. That makes me wonder if my dream job will also become a casuality of a modernizing society.

That scene transition at 0:34 might be the single best joke in Vlogbrothers history.


Except maybe for that "man... zebra... manbra" thing.

I don't know what happened, but my dog laid his head on my key board on now the video is in super speed, but even listening to a 4 minute video in 1 minute this video was completely comprehensive...I'm impressed.

So John, you wanted to Robert Osborn (R.I.P.). And why are talking about TCM like it no longer exists? I love that channel!
