We need to talk about Soul Pancake. Soul Pancake create the most life affirming and uplifting content that never fails to cheer me up. Having been a subscriber to their YouTube channel for a good few years now, their videos always bring a smile to my face – no matter how rubbish I might be feeling. Their video ‘Take a Seat, Make a Friend’ is quite possibly my favourite thing on the internet. They invite strangers into a ball-pit (because why should it only be children that get the fun?) and ask them to talk about particular topics. It’s no good me explaining it, watch the video for yourself…
Just bloody lovely, heartwarming stuff, right? The most important thing for me about Soul Pancake is how they tackle big issues and don’t shy away from them. Right now, they’re doing a series of videos called ‘How You See Me’ where people describe their experience of having a disability, coming from an Asian background and being a member of the LGBTQ community, to name only a few!
Then, there is the legend that is, Kid President. Honestly, this kid has sass levels that could rival Beyonce’s. In the video ‘A Pep Talk from Kid President’ he states, ‘If we’re all on the same team, let’s start acting like it. We got work to do. We can cry about it or we can dance about it’. Suddenly, I feel myself cheering ‘YES, KID PRESIDENT, I WILL DANCE’. If, for no other reason, watch this video to see his snazzy dance moves towards the end.
SoulPancake has around 1,800,000 subscribers on YouTube but, in my opinion, that’s simply not enough considering how brilliant it is, both at spreading joy and spreading awareness.
Go on, subscribe to them at: https://www.youtube.com/user/soulpancake. I never knew there was so much that could be gained from a three minute video.
Hope SoulPancake brings some SUNSHINE to your life, it certainly did for me!
Stacks of love,
