This Wednesday, March 12, “Equals Three” will see its final episode go public on Johnson’s main YouTube channel.
“Equals Three” began its run in 2009, and quickly grew to become a prominent YouTube show mainstay that has collected over a billion views. Hence the title, each episode of “Equals Three” features Johnson reviewing and commenting on three viral videos.
“Like I’m getting to that point where, not only am I burnt out, but I feel like I need to move on. To put it into context, I’ll be 33 in August, and the show — the show is a performance, and it’s like a performance as much as anything is a performance, but it feels way immature.”
Aside from “Equals Three,” Johnson and his girlfriend Anna Akana own their studio Runaway Machine (formerly Runaway Planet), which recently produced the successful “Riley Rewind” narrative series on Johnson’s main channel.
