Why Watch? In its first web series, Reddit has managed something charming but adult. Fortunately, they chose a subreddit category that isn’t horrifying. The concept behind Explain Like I’m Five is both hidden deep inside the title and a favorite of advertising campaigns, but its the execution that finds an excellent balance between subjugating children to mature concepts like “Exatentalum” and delivering something sweetly non-toxic.
In this entry, Michael Kayne and Langan Kingsley talk to a group of children about Friederich Nietzsche and his philosophical legacy of challenging the Socratic status quo. It’s a tortured concept that most college freshman can’t grasp, but these five year olds seem to catch on pretty quick. Especially when it comes to stealing toys they want.
It’s simple, sure, but it’s also a damned delight.
