Signing Psychosis Takes Over

Signing Psychosis Takes Over

Good morning Hank, it’s Monday. I’m wearing a suit made out of signatures but I can’t remember why; please ignore my crazy eyes, they’re crazy! Mmmmm, crazy… I wanna thank everybody for participating in signing psychosis, because I know my fashion sense is gettting worse and worse as I get crazier and crazier with the signatures, but your fashion sense is also getting worse, Nerdfighteria, and that makes me feel better. Sometimes I just like to rub my signatures. Do you think it could be the Sharpie chemicals? Maybe they’re making me, you know… crazy. Am I crazy? Or am I the sanest person in the room? I’m the only person in the room. Hold on, Hank, I have to acquire another person to test my sanity. Willie, are you a dog or a man? There’s no such thing as a mog, which are you?! Hank, I realize I must free myself from the tyranny of these signatures! *Angelic singing* Movie Magic! Hank, as you know, I’m under a lot of stress right now, mostly because of the TFIOS signing; let’s go to the TFIOS-ometer. OW! DOHH! Ohhh, I’ve made a mistake! It’s not as wheely as I thought it was gonna be. So Hank, as you can see, I only have 25,000 copies left to sign, but a) 25,000 is a lot of copies and b) I don’t have many non-travel days left in which to sign those books, so I’m sort of freaking out right now. Hank, I wanna quickly thank Nerdfighteria again for giving me the world’s first-est first-world problem. I signed 5300 books yesterday, it took me about 14 hours, I’m going to have to keep that pace going on every non-travel day between now and November third in order to finish, I hope that I finish, because otherwise some of you will get unsigned books and you will be very mad at me, and I will be mad at myself, there will be a lot of anger in the room. *takes a deep breath loudly* Sometimes when I feel a lot of anxiety, i just want to, like, sound my barbaric yop over the rooftops of the world, like YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP! Somebody got me a zombie unicorn hat, Hank, wasn’t that nice? Alright Hank, we are now at Holiday Park and people are looking at me funny but I don’t know why, I’m just a man in a suit with a zombie unicorn hat filming himself. What else do you expect to see in a public park on a Monday morning? Ok, Hank, I need Nerdfighteria’s help. Nerdfighters, you have uncovered the story of Ivan the Terrible’s terrible library, you have found the truth about Gussie Manlove, and now I need you to explain to me… the ruins. So, there are these weird, fake ruins in the middle of a public park here in Indianapolis, but they’ve kind of become real ruins due to decades of neglect. So I’m hoping that by using the combined research powers of Nerfighteria, we can figure out, y’know, what the heck. Hank, this would, of course, would be a great time to use Your Pants, but unfortunately, Your Pants are still broken, sentences that don’t make sense out of context. So, uh, we can use a forum at the Ning or YouTube comments here, but I’m hoping that you guys can just help me figure out… what is this strange and terrible beauty behind me? Hank, I’m gonna go back to signing, but I will see you on Wednesday. PS: Nerdfighters, I will be reading from The Fault in Our Stars in Indianapolis on November first, then I will also be at the final Beckoning of Lovely event at the Bean in Chicago, on November 11th; more info in the dooblydoo. P.P.S: Hank I know we’re throwing words around like ‘crazy’ and ‘psychosis’, and I also know lots of nerdfighters including this one, *points to self* have struggled with or are struggling with mental illness. So, anyway I don’t want to make fun of mental illness, I want to make fun of me. Alright, thats all, see you tomorrow… Wednesday. Gah, I’m so bad at days!

  1. I rarely laugh out loud when I am all by myself, watching Youtube vides. But John falling off that chair was just … loltastic.


  3. I have the flu and have refrained myself from laughing for the past 3 days cause it sends me into a coughing fit. Let's just say when John fell out of his chair, I had a 5 minute long coughing fit

  4. the ruins mentioned on page 307 are those ruins arent they? i just finished the book after three days of reading it (oh my lord you are fantastic Green.)
    and i must say, my best guy friend is Agustus Waters twin, without the cancer even though he has a tumor. 

  5. Hold up. Slow down. WE (as in Nerdfighteria, not me personally) FOUND IVAN'S LIBRARY?! Someone explain this to me NOW, PLEASE!!?!

  6. Every time John falls/hits something/hurts himself/yells, I expect the Yeti to yell-ask if he's okay. And then I realize that she's probably so used to it that checking on him probably isn't even that big of a concern anymore.

  7. The Barbaric Yawp! That is in a Walt Whitman poem! Song of Myself, I think. I AM PROUD OF MYSELF because I recognized it, and pleased (more so) with you because you referenced and AWESOME poet. Huffs out breath Thank you. 

  8. John, I just want you to know that whenever i'm having a bad day or need a pick-me-up, all I have to do is watch this video and keep playing you falling over. I'm so sorry that this brings people so much joy but thank you again for keeping this in your video. It really is wonderful!

  9. I've created a drinking game where you drink a shot each time john blinks…… it's not a very good drinking game…

  10. The Holliday Park ruins came from New York, like, a century ago. They were once the facade of a building: an artistic piece called-I'm not making this up-The Races of Man. When a NY developer wanted to build a skyscraper in their place it was sent to Indy in a raffle of sorts. The man responsible for the stewardship of the forms wanted to recreate a symbolic tribute to nation and heritage, complete with inscriptions from the Constitution of the United States, a reflecting pool, a row of stately

  11. …trees, and the whole boatload of baroque junk. Decades later, his dream, and the dreams of his country, which perhaps were nothing more than dreams, have gone to rust and rot, the trees killed by the Ohio river valley's winters, the pool choked by algae. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful place to first try booze, cigarettes, and kissing as teenagers growing up in an Indianapolis that had outlived the dream.

  12. Little bit of trivia, there is in fact such a thing as a mog, it's a slang word for an annoying idiot (or idiot in general I suppose) here on the Emerald Isle, the land of saints and scholars 😀 (that's Ireland btw :P) it may have other more official definitions but hey I'll leave that to you 😛

  13. The Tfios disease is caused by prolonged exposure to sharpy inc during the singing of john green books. it's symptoms are diminishing sense of fashion, loss of the necessary motor skills to sit down, and crazy eyes.

  14. "Your Pants are still broken – sentences that don't make sense out of context"

    Well, at least you didn't say "Your Pants are still down." 😉

  15. I think you'll find in hindsight that you could have signed a lot of books in the time it took you to make a suit out of signatures. This displeases me.

  16. Dear Hank and John (sorry John, I've been watching SciShow much longer than vlogbrothers, and Hank is a bit more of my senpai than you; his name shall come first): 3 things.
    1: Do you watch Adam ruins Everything? I think Hank would love it.
    2: What would both of your cutie marks be (Also your thoughts on each other's)
    3: Do some peg-jump solitaire!
    Plz respond in a video.

  17. When I find myself in times of stress, I like to go back to videos Signing Psychosis John. It really helps me realize that no matter what happens, I'll probably never have to sign my name for 14 hours in a single day.

  18. John, this is such an excellent video. I am watching this in 2019 and its just brilliant. Great work you wonderful man

  19. I don't know why, but I've been watching a lot of old Vlogbrothers videos recently, and it's funny in this stretch here watching John increasingly go insane as he signed all the books.

  20. I was watching vlogbrothers to fall asleep and this video started playing. I woke up to John “I fell in love with him the way you fall asleep. Slowly, and then all at once” Green, yopping his head off. Big mood.
