SciShow Needs You

hello there and welcome to the first and possibly only video in the scishow pledge drive scishow has a goal that not a lot of people thought would work that goal is to share the truth about our world in an objective and deep way we don't try to make it all about explosions or sharks or freakin Bigfoot we are here to talk about how fascinating the world is because the world is fascinating it doesn't need all that extra spice with over a million subscribers now it appears that a lot of people agree with us so thank you for supporting the show and the idea that science is interesting on its own by enjoying scishow a television network of course would never fund scishow we actually talked to some television networks about it and some of them literally laughed at us YouTube however gave us a grant to do our first two years of content and we are extremely grateful to them but that money had to run out eventually and it does run out soon that leaves us with a few options we could sell scishow to a major media company you could probably guess who the highest bidders would be and then we will be at their mercy to how to make our content more successful by which I mean more appealing to the masses so we can work our butts off selling ads that would interrupt your viewing experience with me being forced to say things like this new car is a scientific masterpiece of engineering and stuff and you can talk to it and it tells you when you're about to run over a puppy you can tell I really like it because they paid me to say this three we could start laying off staff starting with Stefan or four you could help fund the show at is a voluntary subscription platform you go to and subscribe to scishow for however much you'd like to per month that can be $0 it could be a hundred dollars your monthly subscription goes into a perk bank so if you subscribe for five dollars a month after a year you'll have $60 and at any point you can trade in your credit for perks like a boaster signed by the whole cast and crew of scishow or you can sponsor a graphic and when an image comes up and I'm telling you about something crazy cool it'll also tell the world that you are responsible for us being able to pay for that graphic you can assign trilobite fossil an embroidered scishow lab coat or you could sponsor a whole episode and instead of me sharing a message from a car company I'll share a message from you and say happy birthday to your dog also we got a fish tank there is currently one fish in there hiding right now you can't see it it's a Red Dwarf its name is Hank now red dwarfs do okay by themselves but I'm sure the fish would prefer some company for $75 you could provide our tank with a freshwater tropical fish named after you and you can keep up to date on the fishes adventures on a tumbler that we're going to start all about The Adventures of our fish of the fish tank which can be named after you well we're asking basically is if you find this content valuable and are able to support it you can pay you get to help support the show so it will remain free for all people if you can't pay you still get the same great size show that you always had you just don't get a fish thanks to all of you who support by watching and to all of you who support by paying which you can and what you think is fair we shall keep making scishow for as long as we can thank you for caring about how cool the world is and from the whole scishow team thank you for supporting us
