  • JACOB SOBOROFF: Hey, it's Jacob.

  • Today we're soaring over snow castles,

  • experimenting with jonkeys, and we're

  • working it for the camera.

  • NATALIE TRAN: You have one chance

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: Last month, Honey Maid

  • put out this short documentary as part

  • of their "This is Wholesome" campaign.

  • HONEY MAID AD: If I had to describe my parents,

  • my dad would be like this.

  • Smart one and everything.

  • And then my papa would be, he's a funny one.

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: It got a huge response,

  • but as you can imagine, there was more than a little bit

  • of negativity in the comments.

  • What they did next though, is just plain beautiful.

  • They asked these two artists to take all the hateful comments

  • and literally turn them into love.

  • We're not the only ones that love this video.

  • It was everywhere over the weekend.

  • The comments were overflowing with support.

  • If you want, go over there and add your own.

  • EARNEST: Everyone knows what a jonkey is,

  • but what do we really know about jonkeys?

  • To help us learn more, Big Play Films

  • is conducting a series of experiments like this.

  • [JONKEY SCREAMING]

  • The channel is run by Nicholas Gerwich, the man behind Eisner

  • award-winning comic Perry Bible Fellowship, which

  • he's been making since 2004.

  • If you're like me and you love delightfully weird videos,

  • this channel is just getting started, so get on board now.

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: Halfpipes, back flips GoPros, need I say more?

  • Some of the world's best free skiers

  • and photographers got together in Livigno, Italy

  • for the Suzuki Nine Knights event

  • to take on Il Castello, an epic snow castle filled

  • with over 100,000 cubic meters of snow.

  • SKIER: There's a million different transfers.

  • Transfers from the quarter pipe, transfers from the half-pipe,

  • transfers from the kicker out of the half-pipe

  • to the jump landings.

  • We have an amazing amount of options out here.

  • Obviously for primarily the big jump.

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: You have to go watch this.

  • CARLY: Kamala Khan made history recently

  • as the first Muslim character to headline a Marvel comic book.

  • Which is so amazingly cool.

  • Idea Channel's nearest episode uses Ms. Marvel to dive

  • into the issue of diversity and representation in mass media.

  • MIKE RUGNETTA: So in the world of superheroes and fantasy,

  • there is a lingua Franca of bodies.

  • Tough, taut, and toned.

  • Mostly white, and with very few exceptions,

  • either male, or arguably, very easily arguably in fact,

  • designed for men.

  • Members of the Kamala Korps are writing in

  • to say how important this comic is to them.

  • How great it is to finally see themselves in this universe

  • they love so much.

  • CARLY: The first issue made the top 25 in comic books sales

  • in North America.

  • Which is no small feat.

  • And issue number three comes out April 16.

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: You know those shoes

  • that are sitting in the back of your closet

  • that are just like half a size too small?

  • Natalie Tran says, save them.

  • You never know when your toes are going to get amputated.

  • NATALIE TRAN: I find myself looking

  • at clothes that don't fit and getting sad.

  • One day, one day.

  • The day I all of a sudden shrink, or grow taller,

  • or my feet get smaller or something.

  • I don't know. "The damage is a lot more severe

  • than we thought.

  • We're going to cut off some of your foot."

  • "Can you cut it to a five and a half?

  • Awesome.

  • But what about the other foot?

  • Now keep it coming man, full speed."

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: Natalie has been posting videos for over seven

  • years, and she has one of the biggest channels in Australia.

  • She's noted for her keen observations,

  • and she credits her parents who were

  • Vietnamese refugees for that.

  • Their outside perspective taught Natalie

  • how to pay close attention to people's behavior,

  • like how we act when the camera comes out.

  • NATALIE TRAN: One of the situations I hate

  • is when you're out with a group of people

  • and you're taking a photo.

  • And then all of a sudden, "Actually,

  • Nat, could you take one on my phone for me as well?"

  • "Oh, sure--" "Actually, Nat, could you take one on my camera

  • as well?"

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: She's funny, she's relatable,

  • most importantly, she's Earnest's favorite.

  • She posts new videos every week, so join the community,

  • and subscribe.
