This is That

This Is That Video | Season 2

All six videos of This Is That Season 2, in one handy blog post.

In the spring of 2017, This Is That Video made its triumphant return with six new videos that satirized everything from social media influencers to comic conventions; emotional viral videos to the "sharing economy." One of the stand out videos was based on a classic This Is That radio story about a youth soccer league removing the ball to eliminate the negative effects of competition - the video version garnered over 10 million views online.
