Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
Do you want to talk with us about this video? We’ll do a sort of Q&A or AMA or whatever in our subreddit: The Addiction and the Refugee videos will be online for 12 more hours before we delete them. This should be enough time for enough people to download them. Feel free to upload them elsewhere, but NOT on ISvid and NOT on Facebook. We’ll take them down on those two platforms because we don’t want people to monetize them or use them as viral content. Everywhere else is ok though!

Not cool. No matter how big your channel gets, it is still not okay to steal video ideas from other channels. Just like how you stole this video from Coffee Break.

I have been researching all the stuff I know through my whole life. The era before the Internet helped me to use critical thinking and research skills to the current one. Your videos are just one of the sources of cool ideas. Since the begining I felt you guys want to get a MA/PhD level accuracy into an easily accesible format. Mistakes happen, a human thing, and kudos to you for knowing that :) Thank you for your awesome work.

I found this channel through another channel that linked your “Loneliness” video, and I was instantly hooked! I love the artwork for the videos as well! I hope you guys will make a video about people that have HSP (high sensitive person), because I’d be interested to see what you guys research on this topic! 😄

If anyone's seen that fucking CoffeeBreak video: He was not looking to make a proper video about pop-science. He was looking for a fight with a bigger channel to make himself more relevant, and when he didn't get that, he got salty and played the lamest victim card I've ever seen in my life. Edit: The prick also MASSIVELY misinterpreted those emails.

The addiction video put me of your channel for a long time, as an ex smoker i know for a fact it is a physical phenomenon. The fact that many wealthy and successful people are hooked on tobacco is further proof of this.

That's crazy that you guys addressed two the of the major issues that I had with your videos - 1) that they're oversimplified and 2) that they often seem really biased. But it's cool that YOU GUYS are the ones bringing this up. I'm wondering if the oversimplification of complex topics in your videos is a consequence of the short format. Regardless, good on you guys for putting this one out.

Ashley Ashley the same creator youre accusing him of stealing from, quickly lost credibility when they released all responses to the emails. stephen twisted his words, and made it seem like he was in the wrong. When in reality, this was in the works already. To animate an entire video is time consuming.

Unfortunate that those two videos were less researched/objective. Still intresting content. You are good content creators. However i think that you could let them be up and put a disclaimer on the video, and say that this is inacurate, or we didnt bring this part up... Since it's still alot of workhours put into it. And if you fixed this video based on Coffebreak, just put a shoutout to him in the description of your video to thank him for pointing out the hickups, which actually in the long term will increase your credability by owning up to misstakes. However credit should be where credit is due, just as in your sources in the videos, as a thank you for the people that help to improve the goal of the channel, which i assume is to increase knowledge in a fun and intresting way.

Feedback: good ideas, animations with birds instead of people are more appealing, it is great you are trying to be more objective It would be great, if you did a video about: recyclation of different materials, 3D printing, domestication - "isn´t drinking milk weird?" left-wing vs. right-wing (pros and cons), conspiratorial theories "is technology beneficial or destroys our society?" (I am for technology, but wouldn´t be people more happy without it?).

I looked up "coffee break" and that's such a garbage channel. "comedian tells joke, everyone loses mind" is a great example as to what a dipshit coffee break is. 1. It's misrepresenting the Louis C Clark thing as people being offended at a joke. No, the guy's is a sexual predator who forced women to look at his naked genitals. Just this alone should be enough reason to dump his channel. It's so dishonest. Wow 2. Then he goes on a tirade about "snowflakes" and callout culture. What an ahole. 3 And his Kurzgesagt video. Wow. Yeah sure Kurzgesagt is such a meanie for making this video and exponsing themselves instead of letting Coffee Break do it first. @Kurzgesagt: You are still wrong, nazis didn't find your video toxic because of your attitude or w/e, but because facts are toxic to them. The refugee video was necessary and it is an absolute shame you deleted it.
