Logan Paul is numerous things, but thankfully he is not a flat Earther.
In a 50- minute, 2-second mockumentary that included a torrid affair with a Flat Earther, a betrayal from a roomie, and a rap that rhymes “NASA” with “I think I’m gon na passa,” the YouTube star revealed that no, he does not in fact think the Earth is flat.
Sporting a newly grown beard, Logan’s scripted-ish film takes a deep dive into the Flat Earth International Conference in Colorado.
During the “filming” of another obstacle video, his roommate Mike Majlak pulls him aside in a terribly acted out dialogue about whether the earth is flat, and is later on caught on cam smashing the various worlds that embellish Logan’s sprawling estate.
” I want you to be truthful with me,” Logan says in a kitchen conflict with Mike. “Do you believe the world is flat?”
In a sit-down interview, Mike declares that he saw the edge of the Earth during a childhood journey to Antarctica.
” We’ve been lied to,” he rants over CGI video of range of mountains surrounded by the universes. Then, he tries to convert Logan to Flat Earther-ism.
Logan likewise faux-interrogates a group of children, who all swear on science that the world is round, up until he finds a kid who reasons that the world should be flat. An actual kid manages to encourage the 23- year-old YouTuber that the world is flat.
Logan and Mike then make their way to the Flat Earth International Conference and meet its CEO, Robbie Davidson. Other Flat Earthers include a guy who launched himself into the sky by means of homemade rocket, a freestyle rapper, and a former employee of Space Systems/Loral (the company that constructs satellites).
” Everybody’s around the world,” a Flat Earther tells Logan. “The globe’s in your mind.”
He also fulfills an Australian Flat Earther and winds up absolutely smitten. It only takes a single date with her to sway him into thinking in the conference’s teachings and for him to proclaims his love for her. In a heart-to-heart with Mike, Logan likewise states his belief in the popular conspiracy theory via rap.
” Since my birth, my dick got mad girth,” Mike and Logan rap. “I’m chilling with my individuals talking ’bout that flat Earth.”
They may be informed, but it does not suggest they’re particularly intellectual.
At Logan’s “coming out” party where he proclaims his newfound beliefs, Mike admits that he’s not in fact a Flat Earther, requiring Logan to wonder if the conference and his relationship suggested anything.
Just what was the point of making this? What did Logan wish to attain?
Which, oddly enough, is precisely how we felt after costs 50 minutes and 2 seconds on enjoying this vlog. Just what was the point of making this? What did Logan hope to accomplish? Is he trolling the Flat Earth International Conference, or is this a self-aware middle finger to the skeptical people who are all too prepared to soak on him?
Logan’s much-hyped video– which was promoted as a documentary but ended up being more of a narrative movie– raised concerns that the older Paul bro had fallen for the conspiracy theory and would spread the lies to his young audience, which is made up of primarily kids In an uncommon minute of maturity, the dude understood for marketing merch and making overtly sexual videos that kids will absolutely enjoy appears to really consider the effects of his actions. We won’t have an army of adolescent Flat Earthers, thanks to Logan Paul.
” I think that’s the dumbest shit I’ve heard in my life,” he said, prior to pausing and pulling one of the most Logan Paul troll he’s pulled so far. “I’m unsure … there is an Earth at all.”
Hint another impossibly loud rap.
