What Is My Life? AM I doing this right? The song (available on Amazon here) pulls audio clips from Jack's videos and slaps it together into something that would almost seem like more than what he originally intended. Except that he has a habit of having this kind of silly-but-deep-and-inspiring personality throughout his channel.
Sure, he's loud and goofy. He has green hair more often than not. He swears, and plays video games for a living. He sounds like every parent's nightmare.
But listening to this song and watching many videos over the last few years, I truly believe this young man is an angel among our youth.
This particular song hit the nail on the head, though. It leaves you with the feeling like you just don't know anything, but you've got to keep trying anyway. Because eggs benedict.
His goofiness breaks up the depth by reminding us to enjoy the moment as fully as we can, while never really knowing if we're 'doing it right.' Sometimes I need that. I think most of us do from time to time.
From Man To Song
Thing is, he does what I do in a lot of ways, without really trying. He finds little life lessons in many videos while playing and being completely ridiculous. I think he's even done a PSA on depression and such, but the real meat of his content comes from innocuous moments when you least expect it.
Underneath the silliness and loud Irishness is optimism, hope, and resilience to the darkness of the world. And really, if you're not impressed with his ability to simultaneously encourage, inspire and entertain, then I'd wager you don't get out much. So many entertainers fall short, even when trying so hard. Jack's got a gift.
If your child watches Septiceye but you don't like it, I'd suggest you try watching his videos yourself for a few weeks. Or listen to this song, since it contains bits from his videos. Afterwards, ask yourself: aren't there far, far worse things your kid could be into?
