Youtube channel Unus Annus takes on new challenge

What would you do if you only had a year? YouTube channel Unus Annus asks and answers that question each day, uploading a video daily until 365 days go by.

YouTubers Mark Fischbach (known as Markiplier online) and Ethan Nester (known as CrankGameplays,) created a YouTube channel together called Unus Annus. Their first video was created on Nov. 12, 2019.

In this video Fischbach and Nester explained that they would be uploading videos daily until the channel reached a year old, and then the entire channel with all of the videos would be deleted. The idea around the channel is appreciating what little time humans have in their lives. 

All traces of Unus Annus, except for the merchandise and the countless fanart, will be wiped from the public, leaving fans only with their memories. It’s a way of teaching people to appreciate what they have while they have it.

From professional fire-eating to piercing each other’s ears, Fischbach and Nester have done a variety of strange and entertaining things on their channel. Even the less dangerous videos like making Fischbach into a human mop is enough for the 4.14 million subscribers following Unus Annus. 

Friday, Nov. 13, starting at 2 p.m. Unus Annus will hold their last ever stream. Throughout the stream, they will talk about their favorite memories of the channel, watch some of the videos and interact with the audience before their time runs out. Then they will on stream delete the channel.

Unus Annus in Latin translates to “one year” and their slogan Memento Mori translates to “remember you must die.”
