Willy Z : Yay. Thanks for uploading Jake! I know you put a lot of effort into these videos and it really shows!

Top Geek : Omg!!! This is brilliant!

Shmozone : Could it be? A 21:9 upload? Greatest day ever.

primaltare : That ending gave me shivers....

Melanie Anne Ahern : my parents think so

Da.Do. : Why did I watch this while eating 😭😭😭

Lun Hing : Mmmm guinea worm

Peter Parker : bad idea watching this at dinner time

Nafi N : If I'm thinking then I must be the parasite controlling the host Human. But I am very sure that I am the human but thats what a parasite controlling a human would say.

Seni Peni : I feel itchy lol

KamboKelvin : The ending with him refusing help is a bit unsettling or should I say controlled

Electricwater378 : Ive never used this as it meant, but this video made my skin crawl. Amazing stuff as always jake!

mars base : awesome video as usual. parasites are definitely the creepiest things about biology! yuck! scary stuff 🤤

this is scout rainbows makes me wet : My thoughts on the ending 1. Jake refuses to be helped by the rescue team because he knows that he's already infected thus his sacrifice himself for the hunanity Or 2. It's the parasite itself refusing the rescue team to help him so it can reprodce by itself before they can teminate it

Vsauce3 : Are you you?

omer michaely : at first i thought it said "could you be a pirate" XD

Jesús Martínez : Why do you talk, like... This Why do the other vsauce hosts, ALSO... Talk like this...

VY Canis Majoris : Lol

The Ace Of Spades : If by parasite, you mean leeching food and money from the people around me, then yes.

Gabriel Ford : My guy is really wearing an idubbbz tshirt lmao

Xxzombiekiller 21FTW : I cant tell who I am. Am I really me? What or who am I. What is my brain? I cant tell what or who I am. I guess I will never know if my thoughts and my brain are me. I cant tell if my brain is who I am. Yet I cant tell who my brain is. I guess I will never truely know who is having these thoughts. Is it actually me or is it something else. I will never know if my brain is me or if it speaks the truth. This could all be some lie my brain wants me to beleive. Yet this is my brain controlling me, telling me what to do. I really dont know what this is or if its even real. I dont know if my brain is asking for help. I guess I can never really know anything. What do these thoughts mean? I guess WE will never know anything at all...

Black XV : Anyone knows how the final song is called?

Ryan Cordero : I like the John Carpenter's 1982 "The Thing" reference you made by the fire.

Whoandwhy : Jake, I love your videos, but god damn they can be some of the most depressing (yet at the same time, extremely fascinating) videos I've ever seen.

PeppyHydra : Feels very Thing-esque. Nice, love it!

Raination : I don’t know why but I’m the thumbnail you kinda look like ‘the hound’ out of game of thrones...

Mottflyer : What's the song from 9:40 to 10:30 ? I can't find it on Audio Network anywhere!


mrcomp : Well ain't that a thumbnail that's going to keep me up at night.

Intellectium : Where was this filmed?

Terreria 2 : Jake can you put a video about what a EMP detenation can do to you if your infront of it like if you agree

Juan Rodriguez : Nice to see another video from you Jake! I love seeing how good your stuff is lately. Also, dig the idubbz shirt.

Joshua Hidalgo : What’s the outro music?

SpO0n : if a Parasite could fully control the Host (EVERYTHING), is the Parasite then considered a self aware being ?

Ethan Clarke : Is anybody else getting itchy lmao

Emre Demir : That was a very entertaining video, Jack. You put a lot of effort in these and it really shows. Keep up the good work, mate.

alex6am : What if vsauce 3 is a parasite?

Matthew Spencer : Used stranger things music. I like your style

FD : Hey, that's pretty good!

HelloAlice/Alexcinder : music at 1:50 reminds me of the stranger things intro

Kaif Amir : You look a bit like yannick carrasco, search him up if you dont kno who he is

Xrenyn the MusicMage : Wow, that gives me an idea: If negative emotions (like hate, rage, jealousy,...) were the effects of a parasite, would there be a method to cure these symptoms? I know these are probably evolutionary benifits for situations where resources are limited but it would make humanity seem a bit more sympathic and likable to me...

2skins : Love all the foreshadowing in the video about Jake being a parasite

Breeka : Your videos are always so artsy and I love it! Great job as always! I love the cinematography and editing that goes into these videos. Also in my opinion if I am controlled by a parasite, then that means that I am a parasite, and if I am a parasite nothing changes. I am still me only what I thought I was is different, who I am is still the same.

The Silent Saboteur : HE HAS A PARASITE!!!!!!! lol

BUZOOKi -GAME : The V of the Vsauce logo should have been the shadow of Jake forming V shape using the light from the fire And your V shaped legs in the end of 'could you live forever' seposed to be the V starting the Vesauce logo **sorry I don't speak English as mother langue**

SivaRoso : Waw Jake ! I think this is your best Video so far.

Dan Loves cats : This was last year FLIP I’m late…
