So this is the “New Black” thing Pharrell was referring too…I don’t know how to feel about this.

don’t let me catch you in the streets pharrell.

bruh, i swear to God

Hey Pharrell, ask Oprah to remind you what happened to her at Hermès and also in Switzerland with the handbag thing. Perhaps she will tell you (off camera) that this “New Black” crap you’re pushing is delusional BS.

Fertilization

A beautifully done animation on how you became you.

See the full video here as I left out some really cool parts.

From 300 or so million down to ONE.

YOU. MADE. IT.

Edit:
Let’s think about this for a moment. The US population is roughly 330 million human beings. For the purposes of demonstration, take almost the ENTIRE POPULATION OF THE US and put them on the west coast, packed as tightly as possible. You’re just chillin, somewhere south of Pasadena let’s say, trying to get free, sweating and hungry with a desire you’ve never experienced before. You know you’re going to die though you think you’ll be the one to make it.

Then like the ULTIMATE hunger games of GENETIC WIN you traverse across the country desperately trying to get to the goal with absolute disregard for the other 299 million people. Your mom, dad, brother, sister, grandma, everyone you’ve ever known dies. You somehow get to the end. Where you bust through a gated base only to be sealed in and combined with another human to make a brand NEW human.

300,000,000 and you’re the only survivor. And your prize is to essentially die and reconstitute into a new being.

That’s awesome.

wow

I want a baby.
