This video amuses me.
So many people have seen this video that I feel like I should make a semi-public statement about it. So:
When I was 20 or 21 or whenever this was filmed, I was an inveterate liar. (I am still a liar, but I’ve gotten better about not claiming fiction as fact.) The story as I tell it in the video above is true only in the broadest outlines: In real life, the prank was planned by my friends and I had a tiny role in the whole affair. It was a great prank, although not quite as great as I make it out to be in this story, and the true heroes of the prank’s legendary success were the men and women who planned it (not me) and of course the performer herself.
I put myself at the center of the story in this retelling because A. I was 20, and B. there was a girl listening, whose laughter you hear a few times, and I had a huge crush on her and thought she would like me if she believed I was behind this hilarious prank, and C. I’ve always kind of cared more about the quality of a story than accuracy.
On some level, I was probably already in the process of repurposing the actual events for fiction. (Those of you who’ve read Looking for Alaska will no doubt recognize the prank.) But anyway, I am always a little embarrassed to watch this video, not only because I was such a dumb ass, but also because my friends who actually did this are brilliant and hilarious pranksters who deserve acknowledgement. (Of course, I won’t name them, as they are now all successful women and men—doctors and financial planners and whatnot—who no doubt do not wish this particular video to appear amid their google results.)
Also: I WAS SO SKINNY.
Okay. That is all.
I’m not very original or clever so I only came up with 2… but I’m sure Nerdfighteria can take it from here.
THE SMILE!!! The smile is now a meme.
True story: I called Hank earlier to discuss v. important business whatever with him, and he was clearly distracted and I was like, “Are you working or just screwing around?” And he said, “I’m working, I swear.”
Five minutes later, I see this on tumblr.
John and Hank’s Mom sells DFTBA soap.
Natural Goat Soap!
How freaking awesome is that????
Not only can you make yourself smell nice, get your skin healthier…but you can do it while remembering to STAY AWESOME!
MUST. HAVE. IN. MY. HOUSE!

(They also have other soaps that look amazing. I’m thinking gift baskets…)
Corn dog mints at the “itsugar” store in Atlantic City. I get the feeling that Hank Green would approve.
Actually…I’ve had these for ages and I’ve always been afraid to try them.
I feel like they would taste like nasty corn dog burps.
the seattle gum wall always remembers to be awesome
Seattle Gum Wall (ew) DFTBA’d!
OMG Next time I’m downtown I will have to look for it! Even though the gum wall totally grosses me out.
It’s been a long time since the giraffe love shirt came out, and I don’t know if anyone’s noticed the secret message.
