Reddit Debuts Original Web Series ‘Explain Like I’m Five’

Reddit debuted its own original web series today based on popular subreddit Explain Like I’m Five, beginning with a video exploring Friederich Nietzsche and the philosophy of existentialism. Like the subreddit, the series will focus on explaining complex topics in ways that even five-year-olds can understand. Reddit general manager Erik Martin told The Hollywood Reporter that the idea behind the series is “about encouraging the reddit community and bigger community of producers, filmmakers and animators out there to create content, video, web series, shows … based on Reddit content.” The YouTube-funded web series will feature two more episodes, “The Crysis in Syria” and “The Volatility of the Stock Market.”
