The script was inspired by an old article from my friend Tim Urban, who runs “Wait but Why”, the best blog on the internet, make sure to check it out. waitbutwhy.com It’s so easy to get lost in your daily life: there are so many “urgent” and “annoying” things that you forget that actually every day is special, sort of. And even more so the days we have with friends and family. I know watching a video like this can hit pretty hard. But at least for me, the message it tries to convey does make me actually change my behavior. Reprioritize things. You know. Hope it had a similar effect for some of you. Also, if you want to track how many weeks off your life you have left or get a new perspective on this stuff, we’ve made a few posters you can check out. Getting something from our shop is the best way to support our channel. kgs.link/N3Ksfqvp In any case, call someone you haven’t called in a while today. And thank you for watching. - Philipp
한국어 자막도 부탁드려요 ㅠㅠ,,,
This is the most depressing video I've seen in years although it's one of the best ever. So please guys,reply to me,what are you doing with your life?
I totally love this channel im a totally fan if this i hope you get more money for your videos I'm a supreme fan of this channel!!!
What the heck?? The average kurzgesagt viewer is 25???? I stated watching kurzgesagt when I was 12-13 Jesus I am on a different level.
Kurzgesagt is so wonderful, thank you for making me want to be happy. I'm crying right now I need sleep.
im only 15 years old and i miss 16 years ago where i didnt exist on this stupid planet. they call home its not my own
All this is valid if you are in a country with good opportunities..
The only word I leaned from this video WARHAMMER
Most our veiwers are 25. Me being 19 lmao
Whoops there goes my will to go on
Good question -litterally every life form
who is peeling onnions ? :')
Remember that no matter what you do, you'll spend 1/3 of your life asleep in bed
im just literally wasting time of my entire life
I'm literally crying while watching this 😭😭
0:08 LEARN TO SWIM LEARN TO SWIM LEARN TO SWIM
I don't even want to live!! When I achieve my dream I will die!!
“1 out of 20 people watching this video will live to 100” being be the 19th person, damn
Stopped playing Sekiro to watch this ... Sees this 1:04
@ 7:17. Literally re-started old Warhammer hobby during Covid after a 20 year break.
That part with the parents really hit me hard
Totally not having an existential crisis in my brain rn Life is long- but the average makes it short. And it makes you dread the things that could happen to you- you think about it over and over and you get anxiety. That crush you have? You want to meet her and be with her, but any day now you could just- die. And she could be with someone else. And all of that comes crashing down in my head. I’m kinda mentally prepared for it after thinking such things over and over but like- yeah it’s some crazy stuff
i'd love to buy a calendar of your life but shipping it to my country would be too expensive. Is there a way I can buy a virtual copy to print at home?
I'm 40. I can't remember my best or even most memories from before 25. And it is depressing to think that people over 90 often can't remember ever having parents themselves. I hope I die at 60 and go to an afterlife. Some place that lets me live the life I wanted to.
Awwww this makes me sad 😔
The parent's thing is not applicable for Asian kids. We were and will never leave our parents alone.
this makes me depressed
Thanks for reminding me to spend more time with my family. This is actually the first docuemtary about spending time with my family that made me cry
This is such a beautiful video!! ❤️
Of all the videos about existential crisis this is BY FAR the most terrifying. Forget about Black holes, Dark matter or entropy. THIS.
"5.200 weeks" if you live till 100?! Great now i feel pressured to do things because 5.200 is not a lot
The moment i realise what the Kurzgesagt music has reminded me of, all these years. Like a jazzy version of Mad World. How fitting.
lol, warhammer minis.
I saw this video 3 days ago. Still not okay. DELETE
-I'm not crying you're crying!
I don’t know, I have also been questioning this for a really long time.
am 16 right now and I've experienced being rich, broke, falling in love heartbreaks, getting a job, creating my empire all in my mind lol... i think my life is about to end when it's not even properly started if that makes sense
@Acs Aaaa2 lol i guess m sorry
Umm I’m sorry but this comment over heats my head :/
It’s weirdly soothing and satisfying to watch.
We have this life is a sufficient thing to be happy😉
Tysm for your efforts
My life is the only thing i am fuckin up
The mechanic at 2:53 under the wobbling jackstands is not gonna make it to 100.
8:08 my current weaknesses, i can't decide what should i do next after ton of failure in the past, i'm afraid of changing and make another wrong decision, sadge 20yo me
The indicate video for a night of insomnia
Only the germs have already engineered their lives ahead of time already knowing… look at the automobiles they make….lucky Deutsch
me every night at 3am :- What am I Doing With my Life?
It feels like my 521st week with this Chanel and I wanted to thank everyone on the team for the amazing animations, stories, knowledge and effort put into each video. Good luck with your merchandise and I hope to see you in another 500 weeks.
I'm 38 when watching this, and the average viewer (as you say) is round 25 years old. . ... Guess I'm above average.
the first 7 minutes almost feels like it was made to be depressing
but i’m 10....
3:11 пересматриваю уже несколько раз и только-только заметил водку тоску :) I watch this several times already and just noticed "vodka anguish"
Damn, I came here to learn not cry
Unrelated, but can you do a video on election security?
I want to enjoy life, I've been grinding against my nature and I have grow but I'm not as driven as my colleagues. :P one day I will be able to sleep 8-10 hours a day, see the sun and enjoy life, hopefully working happily.
cade o prtugues
Life itself is a gift, be gratefull
I think the idea of a life calendar may be fun but also deperating for some people, because you'll see how many days of your life have you wasted. I May be on both categories :|
I'm thirteen and I love these video's. Sorry for growing up.
Am I the only one in primary school watching this
I "love" how Kurzgesagt is slowly becoming a trigger to my panic disorder.
would be better if you used "someone" instead of '"you" when stating causes of death, makes one feel less depressed/sad
I was picking up a brownie when I saw the notification pop up “What are you doing with your life?” Needless to say I’m eating a salad now
perhaps best your video
I can't like enough.
4:45 great video to watch before boarding a plane
i didnt come here to get depressed
Almost made me cry :( *great video tho*
as always, thank you for the existential crisis
Dead heart and dead brain. Older dead.
Damn don't dead old human. 😥
kurzgesagt started out as a prospect channel and the tragedy is it get what it want. Now there is nothing to do anymore except posting meaningless video and let the ignorant and rubbish comments take over.
I didn’t learn anything new. I feel like y’all are just tryna give me anxiety and then pretend that you’re doing a good thing by calming me down or enlightening me afterward. Existential dread will hit us regardless, so maybe it’s better to let us cope and not draw our minds to it unnecessarily. Y’all are selling the disease and the cure at the same time.
God only helps those who help them selves and finding the meaning under that meaning people talk about their lazy experience
Just imagin what people in other countries go through because you have the rights to explore but don’t just sit there just to wait for happiness to bump over you again just find it in your heart and chase over that joy you want!
I understand that sounds like the wrong answer but just because you never tried you can not succeed. You can ignore the useless things what school taught you and find joy on the tinniest things of your life.

This made me so much more emotional than I expected. 🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺
I haven’t any time 😒.I wish TIMEEE !!!
I'm 25 and I'm already believe I wasted all this time. Thnks for the video.
the people who live in Greece on a Greek island I don't remember the name almost all the people who live on the island live 100 years
Beautiful video. Congrats.
PSA, guys: maybe avoid this one if you're having a down day... you won't feel too bouncy afterwards
I give people Newspapers and My dad gives ads to help me and when i don't need help with it he goes and then i give Them alone. hes still going to live... I Hope. and i'm only 13
In Brazil the videos isn't free, there are ad yet.
Well...guess ill die now🤷♂️
I love you Kurzgesagt
Are you watching while lying on a coach.. !? 😄
"What are you doing with your life?" Playing video games for all of my free time and wanting to die. Thanks for checking in though
Video, that created by my mom. "FIND NORMAL WORK, NOW!!!"
3:11 Bottle with vodka Me: СОЮЗ НЕРУШИМЫЙ РЕСПУБЛИК СВОБОДНЫХ
thanks for ANOTHER EXISTENTIAL crisis
ISnets : psss , hey kid do you want some depressing candy rolled in wrapper of existential crisis Me : No sorry not into that. ISnets : It has colorful cheerful animations. Me : Yes please!
Holy shit, I do have to finish painting my warhammer minis
I know that this comment is gonna get lost in tons of other comments, but I just wanna disappear & become smthing like a ghost in order to be just a spectator
Fear not death for it is nature's intent, instead fear a death devoid of purpose.
[cue existential crisis and panic]
well just had a panic attack watching this
well that's depressing and motivating at same time.
All of these videos are giving me an existential crisis but I can’t stop watching them.
Universe created.. atoms started combining.. and started creating a complex system, life origin started.. finally bunch of atoms got consciousness. . And they start thinking about survival, they started killing other living things, cutting tress , murdering people's, defending opponents, just to earn more and spend better life on earth.. meanwhile earth left the chat and universe apologies for his mistake (giving consciousness to stupid people's)
