    EDIT: Join us February 23 - March 3 on our shakedown expedition! This will be a primarily engineering-based expedition, but there will be science and some surprises as well! If everything is looking good, our dive on February 25th will be a big one. You can watch our livestreams on NOAA’s website here:
    Or on TheXvid here:
    Hi, Zefrank! I’m one of the videographers on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer. I’ve been working onboard since 2016 and saw a lot of this in person. It’s surreal and an honor to see our Okeanos footage in one of your videos. You blend in so well! And you even got the bad phone audio right! Welcome, unofficially, to the team!

    “Just because your toddler wants a nom-nom you can’t eviscerate a milkman” is one of the best lines to come out of not only a ZeFrank video, but the entire history of comedy in general. Especially in context.

    I'm on my fifth or sixth viewing of this, and I laugh Every. Single. Time!!! It's all the subtle things he does to make it seem like he's actually one of the commentators....the "Hi, Chris", when he entered the conversation, or him apologizing when he "accidentally interrupts" someone, that make this so unbelievably funny to me. The brilliance of the editing on full display. Genuinely hope this becomes a series, as I could watch this sort of thing daily.

      G kraith 6 months ago +1

      No it will be 80% boring stuff like staring at the bland sea floor, technical talk between the group and looking at the data.
      These highlights we see are occasionally in between boring crew work stuff. I know this because I've watched other livestreams of EVnautilus who do the same things as the crew in this video.
      And this why the scientists/crew are more eager, in awe and more chipper in the videos because it's a brief interesting thing they encounter between boring technical work unless they plan to extract and analyse it.

      @Nicolas Osborn I've always wanted to watch an ROV feed. What sort of thing do they enjoy eating the most? Or is it dependant in size where some prefer cable, others maybe LiPO or LiFePO4, and maybe the rare RTG _(Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator)_ as a lifetime sustaining "forever meal"?
      ....... 😊
      (sorry, been watching a bit too much Zefrank and couldn't resist myself! 🤣)

      @Dr. Bright we have a monitor on the bridge where we can watch the ROV feed in real time. I would spend most of my time on watch doing my own commentary a la' Zefrank; "Here we see a gaggle of Dogfish. Despite the name, they are not actually related to dogs but Jerry keep insisting that their young are referred to as pups."

    Ze, I'm going through some gravely tough times right now. I've watched a ton of old "A Show" videos and find myself longing for more of your wisdom: "current day edition", lol. The world is so different now:( Would you please make even just one more? It would mean a ton to me.
    My question is this... I know you've dealt with a lot of hardships and difficulties and I'm sure at different points considered taking drastic action to make the hurt stop. What did you tell yourself in the last minute that kept you from going any further?
    Thank you so much for all of your creations. They've been very special to me for many, many years.

      @blarg2429 If you listen closely all the lines are edited. Parts of sentences have been removed to make zefrank's commentary sound more natural, but he's also sometimes added parts where people talk over him or interrupt him to make it sound even more natural because that's what actually happens in natural conversation.

    • blarg2429
      blarg2429 6 months ago +67

    A little embarrassing when I forgot to turn it down on the oncology floor when I was visiting my son (he was diagnosed with leukemia in February and is officially in remission!). The oncology nurses got a giggle out of the mildly inappropriate, LOUD clip lol. I fumbled the phone and it went off twice more before I could get it from the floor... So I sent the nurses to your TheXvid! 😊

    To be fair, their commentary is quite often funny, especially when they are nerding out over a new species. Ze’s added voice over just adds his sprinkle of hilarity :)

    🤟😁👍 This is hilarious! I've seen a few of the NOAA deep sea dives like this 1. Ya those scientists finding new creatures all the time. This was a great idea & I really hope it's the 1st of many to come....with the NOAA "uncollaboration" with ZeFrank✌️

    OMG! This is exactly what I needed to hear today! Thank you so much as always you took it to 11 alright everybody else just goes to 10 and you my friend like I said yours goes to 11! Thank you for doing what you do which is basically making a crap ton of us blow milk out of our noses at inopportune moments while then proceeding to sob tearfully laughing into our arms as to not draw attention to ourselves which also failed miserably because we are unconstrained laughing LOL! Hope everyone reading this had a great day and hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving on the morrow! Thank you again can't wait for your next installment hopefully it won't be while I'm trying to chew or I will probably die from choking but at least I will die with a smile on my face LOL!

    I hope that someday Zefrank gets a gig on a proper, feature-length nature documentary. He would be perfect.

    Does anyone know if there’s a biology channel just like this but more focused on the human body? Muscles, bones, dna, cels, stuff like that

    way to do a “Lars von Trier” call out.
    not too many filmgoers have heard of one of the most celebrated and critically acclaimed, yet controversial writer/director working today.

    As hilarious and well done as this is, I personally prefer the informational videos you do. Though this was definitely a fun change of pace. I think it's just the serious commentary of the others kind of drowns out the comedy a bit

    Well I'm shocked, Ze. I cannot imagine why, you add so much more to the narrative than just dry conversation. 00:18

    This wasn't what I thought it was. Very different than his normal videos, but funny that he inserted his own commentary into these. I wonder how many people, even with his disclaimer at the end, still don't realize he wasn't part of the convo in *any* of this footage, lol
