                  I just realized that the artists are Rhett and Link, and Ian Hecox, and Anthony Padilla. I’m so dumb.

                                    Artists definitely won't.Better doses,better flows, better self-appraisal, and excellent transitions.

                                      I think this is the best ERB made to date and that's high praise since there are quite a few ERBs that are incredibly good.

                                      It was too short though... With 8 personas to deal with they should have added another couple minutes.

                                          Lol just after watching this 5 times I realized the background behind the artists is from a painting of Raphael "La scuola di Atene" (literally translated as "Athens' school")
                                          Just a fan fact--cause my teacher of History of Art was pretty persistent on it lel
