Ep.69 – Don't Hug Me I'm Scared

Green is not a creative color.

ORIGINAL YOUTUBE VIDEO LINK

This week is a doozy and a must see episode of 20K Leagues Podcast. Kyle scrambled for a topic and remembered the classic decades old YouTube series Don't Hug Me I'm Scared. Many people have tried to decode and decipher it's symbolism and meaning over they years and it's back in the spotlight after the BBC's Channel 4 announced it will be airing all six episodes as a C4 comedy special. But what's really going on? Jon, Kyle, and Harland take a shot at understanding the meaning behind the black goo, the color green and what Yellow Guy's whole deal is. Also, Mike Rowe is a dirty little boy and Kyle has man bulge on the brain.
