About Casually Explained

A self-described “YouTube video creator and all-around cool guy,” the monotonous stick figure man behind Casually Explained takes big concepts and makes them easy for the internet to digest, like “Evolution” or “Finding a Job.” On its face, Casually Explained seems like it might be giving an honest appraisal of these topics, but it always devolves into subtle irony and self-deprecation. From parodies of science and technology to health and fitness, with some dating advice sprinkled in, Casually Explained makes the hard-to-tackle issues of the day more fun and manageable for the 700K+ YouTube subscribers who have tuned in since its launch in December 2015.
