Unus Annus: Post Mortem


Unus Annus is no more.

The greatest experiment in the history of YouTube is now officially over.

And OMFG, it was innovative, it was amazing, it was more work than almost anyone else can imagine and it changed the way content is presented on YouTube.

After a staggering 365 videos … one posted each day for the past year … Unus Annus experiment has come to an end. Mark “Markiplier” Fischbach and his longtime friend and former editor, Ethan “CrankGameplays” Nestor shocked everyone by confirming the channel will be deleted in its entirety, including every single video.

Why would they do such a thing?

Because Unus Annus is Latin for “one year” and in that tear, we saw the duo upload a new video every day for an entire year. Fischbach and Nestor told their audience the experiment sought to illuminate the fleeting nature of existence, in their bid to make the most meaning of the limited time we all have. “Do not archive or re-upload anything,” reads the description of a goodbye live stream. “This is our last wish. Our parting gift. Stay true to the purpose of our final year or we shall lay down wrath upon those that attempt to escape the end.”

Unus Annus amassed 4.4 million subscribers and has recently been topping 80 million monthly views. There is not one video that has scored under 1,000,000 views.

As they say goodbye to Unus Annus, Fischbach and Nestor will continue to communicate with their audience via their individual channels, which count 27.4 million and 1.7 million subscribers, respectively.
