Vlune has come and, sadly, gone…
After the success of Vlogvember, Adrian Bliss and Greg McCahon set up a Kickstarter campaign to create Vlune, a month-long series documenting their journey from New York to Los Angeles for
While the series may have finished, we can’t seem to let it go. We’ve written about it just a few times. So here’s a recap of the best moments from the pair having fun during the day.
What’s better than time lapses? Time lapses paired with music, of course! Adrian teamed up with someone we believe to be an up-and-coming music producer who goes by the name of “Audio Jungle” to ensure his rose above the rest.
We recommend Adrian’s remix in Episode Two if you want the full experience.
We all wish we could be as stylish as Greg. He sure knows how to dress to impress.
We learnt a lot about American politics
The American election season is in full swing, so we’re glad we have Adrian to give us this very in-depth, yet clear, explanation of American politics. Here’s a snippet of the knowledge he instilled on us:
“Here’s the Capitol, where they make all their decisions, and if you don’t know much about them, here’s a top tip: the blue ones like gays and the red ones like guns. And that’s why you never see a gay person with a gun.”
RVs = super fun times
All aboard Harvey the RV!
One of the perks for those who pledged the most to Adrian’s fundraiser was the incredible opportunity to join him and Greg on their trip (as a cardboard cutout). Two viewers made that pledge and we were introduced to the very chatty – and hilarious – Elly and Jeff.
They dazzled us with their dinnertime conversations.
Who needs Disneyland when you have Adventure Park USA?
The entirety of Episode Seven was just adorbz. It truly was the perfect day, with Greg and Adrian braving rollercoasters, playing carnival games, and being the ultimate BFFL goals. It’s also where the the pink mascot made its first appearance.
Such a monumental day.
Filmmaking is serious business
Adrian isn’t just YouTube’s biggest superstar – he’s also a very serious filmmaker. We mean, just watch this hard-hitting, nail-bittingly intense Western he wrote, directed AND starred in. Seriously, we don’t know how he does it!
Let this be a lesson to all of you: never cheat at Fives.
Casey Neistat is a thief
If Episode 14 is any proof, Casey Neistat totally stole Adrian’s super unique idea for wakeboarding. Good grief, can’t that unoriginal New Yorker come up with his own style? What happened to originality…?
Beth flying out to America instantly made the series ten times better.
We don’t think that’s Zoella…
We were on the edge of our seats while Adrian and Beth were trying to find their way out of the forest. We honestly thought they’d be stuck in the wilderness forever, where they would be bitten by bugs and have to live off tree moss. We’re sure glad they managed to make it out alive!
And what would a life-or-death situation be without a bit of comic relief, which came in the form of Evan Edinger:
Elvis to the rescue!
Now, we don’t know about you, but if we were lost in the desert with only two cardboard cutouts and a pink mascot for company, we’d definitely love to be reduced by Elvis in a pink Cadillac. It’s a dream of ours, really.
The final episode
Was it just us or did the final episode of Vlune leave you feeling all the feels?
Where do we begin? Should we discuss Greg’s VidCon fame, the Casey Neistat cameo, how lonely Adrian’s meet-and-greet was, or how we were drowning in tears at Adrian and Greg’s reunion at Disney?
Seriously, the ending had it all and we can’t even tell you how many times we watched it. It was a beautiful way to end a brilliant series.
Adrian Bliss, you truly are a gift from the YouTube gods.
Vlune was everything we hoped it would be and so much more. We really wish we could have come along to keep you company, but sadly, we had to stay behind and keep everyone updated on all things YouTube.
On a serious note, we want to applaud Adrian and everyone else for how successful Vlune was. It’s definitely one of the best series to premiere on YouTube this year and we highly recommend everyone watch it. Seriously, do it. You won’t regret it!
