So, the YouTube channel “Unus Annus.” has been closed down. Not by YouTube but by the creators. The youtube channel used another name, “Memento mori.”, a reminder of the inevitability of death. It is a sad day for fans, and sadly I will never get to watch this content and see how great the content was.
It is funny, until a few hours ago, this YouTube channel was unknown to me. I did not even know it was a big channel. I figured it was a small YouTube channel at the time when I saw it trending, but no, it was a big YouTube channel ran by CrankGamePlays (Ethan Nestor) and Mark Edward Fischbach (Markiplier).
It is a shame that I will never get to watch any of the content from Unus Annus, now the YouTube channel is defunct, and the history of the YouTube channel got wiped out. I would think that I had watched Markiplier’s content prior would have pushed me to watch their collab YouTube channels but nope.
I think at this time, I was getting burnt out on collab YouTube channels and trying to do a YouTube collab with an ex and a friend of mine, but that didn’t go anywhere cause back then, I didn’t understand how to do collab-esque videos. That’s when I just got burnt out on YouTube collab channels. There are other reasons like me following so many YouTube collab channels and couldn’t keep up.
Sadly, I don’t know who CrankGamePlays, before this. He is an unknown user to me, but to say he is small would be wrong. It is a shame should I want to learn of this YouTube channel past and content, I would have to go off of fan videos or reuploads. Assuming the latter would be allowed without getting taken down by YouTube bots.
From what I have seen on Twitter, the reason for the YouTube channel closing is because they want to focus on large projects, or it was something along those lines. And if that is the case, I wish them nothing but good luck on their adventure and hope their next project is even better.
If anything, this will give me a reason to start watching CrankGamePlays (Ethan Nestor) see if I enjoy his content as I do with Markiplier ( Mark Edward Fischbach). But I don’t know what kind of videos CrankGamePlays makes. I will be in for a ride.
Like I said above, this is much more heartbreaking for fans of Unus Annus (Memento mori) since they were fans day one. And while the fans that watch will get no more official content, fans will and can enjoy the fan content, it’s not the same, but it’s nice to have something, at least.
I wanted to talk about this and add my two cents to the hat. A sad end to an adventure, but all things must end sadly, or they will lose that spark later on.
