>>>IT HAPPENED AGAIN.
I THOUGHT IT WAS BEHIND ME, BUT THE DREAMS CAME BACK.
I WAS UP ALL NIGHT. I CAN’T EAT.
I CAN’T SLEEP.>>WHAT’S WRONG?
>>IT HAUNTS ME.>>OH, STEVEN NOT THIS AGAIN.
>>I FORGOT ABOUT IT FOR YEARS, BUT THEN I REMEMBERED THAT
AVATAR, THE GIANT INTERNATIONAL BLOCKBUSTER, USED THE PAPYRUS
FONT AS IT’S LOGO.>>AVATAR, LIKE, THAT MOVIE FROM
NINE YEARS AGO?>>YEAH, HE JUST HIGHLIGHTED
AVATAR, HE CLICKED THE DROP DOWN MENU, AND THEN HE RANDOMLY
SELECTED PAPYRUS. LIKE A THOUGHTLESS CHILD
WANDERING BY A GARDEN YANKING LEAVES ALONG THE WAY.
>>AND SO NOW YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE SEQUELS THAT ARE
COMING OUT?>>THEY ARE MAKING MORE?
>>YEAH, WELL, I THINK I HEARD THAT.
>>THEY CHANGED THE ARTWORK. THEY FIXED IT.
>>IT LOOKS SIMILAR.>>HE JUST GOT AWAY WITH IT.
THIS MAN, THIS PROFESSIONAL GRAPHIC DESIGNER.
WAS IT LAZINESS? WAS IT CRUELTY?
>>YOU SHOWED ME THIS BEFORE. I DON’T THINK THIS IS LITERALLY
PAPYRUS. MAYBE THAT WAS THE STARTING
POINT BUT THEY CLEARLY MODIFIED THIS.
>>BUT WHATEVER THEY DID, IT WASN’T ENOUGH!
AND NOW HERE I AM DOING WHAT I VOWED TO NEVER DO AGAIN, SITTING
OUTSIDE HIS HOUSE, HOPING TO CATCH A GLIMPSE OF HIM TO SEE
HIM DOING HIS LITTLE THINGS, LIVE HIS INSANE LITTLE LIFE.
I THINK ABOUT IT EVERY TIME I SEE PAPYRUS.
>>OKAY. WHERE ELSE DO YOU EVEN SEE THIS
FONT?>>HOOKAH BARS.
TEQUILA MERCH OFF BRAND TEES. SHAKIRAM MERCH.
>>MY GOD. ARE YOU OKAY?
WHAT HAPPENED?>>DO YOU REMEMBER THE AVATAR
LOGO.>>YEAH.
IT WAS TRIBAL YET FUTURISTIC.>>PAPYRUS.
>>SURE.>>I KNOW WHAT YOU DID.
I KNOW WHAT YOU DID! [ LAUGHTER ]
[ APPLAUSE ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

  1. Almost two years had passed, and I'm still obsessed with this skit. I'm not exactly sure why it's eating me up inside. I need help. Someone send help, please.

  2. ahh, the great questions of life:

    What is life? Why do we exist? Does God exist? Why the hell did they use the papyrus font for the avatar logo?

  3. Papyrus, one of fonts I used whenever designing cards etc. that was before I discover that more fonts are downloadable and now papyrus is just long forgotten. Are you trying to put guilt on me?

  4. i somehow think
    about incredible life of amelie pullen – just the music kind of grabs like in that movie, and somehow it reminds me of some car ads, where they are so good and picturesque you forget it is actually an ad after the last moment. it is just so well played, with such movie-like quality, it is kind of overkill for a scatch…i find it very emotional, dramatic, funny. i re warched it kople of times, every time liking it even more.

  5. Im not joking. There is an argentinian film called "Dad gone crazy", terrible, awful, bad movie… opening credits in Comic Sans

  6. This is how I felt with the f$cking Trajan epidemic. EVERONE was using it like they were the only ones—ads, authors, trailers, posters.. I’d have welcomed papyrus back!

  7. Well Avatar is a sanskrit word meaning manifestation in a body so I guess Papyrus is a way to make it look like a scripture font

  8. love how the title is in comic sans, like some lazy graphic designer highlighted the word papyrus and randomly clicked comic sans, I know what u did

  9. i have a crush on the woman in the audience who gave the knowing laugh when she saw the title of the movie in the font that it's in
