AlternateHistoryHub : Kony sought refuge in Wakanda which is why we cant find him

Donut Operator : That song lol I'm dead

Andre' : Literally, the snap at 9:31 led directly to a well-timed ad!

Foxo Commando : This all sounds like an episode of South Park...

griffin lancaster : Is Kony responsible for Uganda Knuckles?

TerminalMontage [Jeremey] : I was just talking about Kony with my friends the other day, glad the Google spies heard me.

TheVenator : I feel so bad for him. He was literally just trying to do a good thing and the world destroyed him for it.

Spaghetti : pick an accent dude

SpyengoEen : People said the Mayans were wrong, the world didn't end in 2012. Well, intellectually it did...

IdioticProgramming : Supreme cuck vs Ugandan WarLord Who will win?

CreepsMcPasta : 2012 was a wild time

Rose Tico's Lard Ass Face : The kony video was forgotten a month after it premiered. Npcs don't have attention spans

biggreenmachine2007 : Isn’t this the guy that got caught jacking it in San Deigo? Edit: I wrote this before watching the entire video.

figel 123 : You should cover the sceincetolgy vs 4chan war/protest

dominoes37 : You know there is a certain kind of hipster liberal imperialism in this. They criticize Bush and Cheney for stirring up trouble in Iraq and Afghanistan but want military intervention in Uganda.... Hypocrites

Keeby : If I was a Ugandan warlord and just found out a firstworld country was gonna want to kill me with dancing and celebreties, I'd probably just move on with my day and do more warlord things

ElvizNation : 9:33 NOW I FRICKING KNOW WHERE THAT "JACKING IT IN SAN DIEGO" FROM SOUTH PARK COMES FROM OMG

Nonamearisto : Kony2012 was virtue signaling at its finest. If you can call that "fine." It was mostly a bunch of people who felt guilty about being white and/or Western and/or not poor. The people who supported this short-lived movement did it to convince themselves they were good people, not because they actually cared about the issue. Most supporters of the movement thought that liking the right thing makes you a good person. Or even just hitting "like" on Facebook makes you a good person.

Mel Burt : Kony 2012 happened after I had left high school but I remember everyone on Facebook was going crazy for it. I called them all out for buying into a fad and not actually caring but I distinctly remember someone calling me a troll and saying at least they were doing something to help unlike me. Apparently all you have to do to help is get a wristband, post about something once on Facebook and never mention it ever again.

Battling Phoenix : Alex Jones and CNN sharing an opinion 😲

IconOfSin24148 : "We'll end the war without a gun!" Press X to Doubt

Captain Moz : The lorax will do that to you...

Res YT : Come back internet historian I miss you

Paola Chavez : I remember I was in middle school when this whole Kony thing was happening. We even had a mandatory assembly so the main guy who made this campaign can ramble on what he was doing to help and stop Kony. I remember not giving a damn and asking why was he asking preteens to act upon. After the assembly, you would see a bunch of tables of invisible children merchandise such as bracelets and shirts. I remember going up to the table to see and the person who was selling asked me if I wanted to “donate” $5 for a bracelet. What kind of child carries $5 in hand plus a bracelet made out of tread is unnecessary expensive. I laughed and said if they wanted to donate me a dollar for my lunch lol

EWMX12 : Congrats on 1 Million

24 Frames Of Nick : I was 13 at the time so I thought this whole thing was an off brand Sony company making a strong movement

James Lysander : Kony probably hired a witch doctor to curse him and that caused a mental breakdown. (Tis a joke don't lose your shit). It is however sickening that the whole world just turned on this guy, who worked around the clock to fight injustice. The people who belong to this world are sick, they have an illness in their very souls and they ignore it.

Mark Donald : 6:08 "these white westerners..." so only white people did it then

Paul Aniciete : Even as a ten year old, I knew this shit was over-simplified. When I look back 6 years, I laugh at how ridiculous things were. I wonder what I'm gonna think of now 6 years from now.

MemeWarVeteran2016 : That's the problem with today's society. People would hastag and like on FB but won't have the guts to actually do something. Same with ISIS, how many people actually went over to Iraq and volunteered to fight against it. When I said the Kony thing was a fucking joke people said I was wrong. But guess what. The Kony campaign dude got caught jacking it in public.

EmpLemon : 8:50 I SEE THIS SHIT.

mickaelaria : Whats the song at 14:50? Ive been looking for it all over, i really wish you started crediting the music you use in your videos man.

hokiepokie : For the life of me, I can't remember the first rule of Fight Club....

Beach Looking Guy : One does not simply destabilize a Ugandan Warlord by liking a status 😂

Aptmass : That mobile game could've won the game awards

Dr Shaym : I saw a guy wearing a Kony 2012 shirt a month or two ago. I guess he ran out of clean shirts.

Veit1991 : Now just imagine that they somehow succeeded to catch Kony. What then? You know what comes after Kony? After Kony comes Kony 2.0

Nicholas Yamamoto : The editing and structure of this video is absolutely top notch.

Mary Chesh : Have you considered a feature of Twitch Plays Pokemon? I remember that becoming such a big deal on the internet that the fans created a whole story and cult following around it that referances were popping up everywhere, even irl.

Master Sashimi : How did we not see it coming- April 20th 4/20 Gdi I Remember our teacher showed us this in class, Like the original video before the breakdown.

Daily Dose Of Internet : I still have my Kony 2012 poster from my dorm room for meme reasons. My entire campus was covered in "Kony 2012" stuff. Chalk on the sidewalk, posters, etc.

Alannah : Invisible Children came to my high school, held a mandatory lecture and talked to my class lol I remember asking a question to one of the two guys that came to my global history class about having any experience with Kony's army and looking at their tote bags. They also talked about meeting in Washington DC to protest, didn't hear anything about it after...

khp231 : *MAKE A PART THREE TO MY IMMORTAL FAN FIC PLEASE*

Michael Kikle : I remember telling my friends, after my high school made us watch the stupid campaign video, that this was obviously a giant scam, and everyone got mad at me lol. My senior year, my friends and I were debating in class over politics and brainwashing in public schools, and I asked them whatever happened to Kony, and it was hilarious having them realize that the whole campaign had fallen off the face of the earth (and their own lives), after they had claimed to care so much about the issue. It was a giant scam, and that was the end-all, be-all of it.

Conlin Carter : Where is the follow up?

Sam Patterson : Is this the prequel to Who Killed Captain Alex?

Asdfer411 : People are desperately trying to look all political correct in the public eye so much that they don't even inform themselves about what they're actually protesting against or standing for. Same thing with voting now.. In my country voting is something completely normal and in america everyone feels like some kind of hero by posting themselves with that goddamn "I voted" sticker.. Literally just doing it for their own ego

MuchFlight : This is so amazingly done holy shit. Amazing work.

Skleptic : My grandma died like if you agree

Laniakea : please do a video about the tumblr situation.
