  1. Thanks for posting the video! Glad you enjoyed it!

  2. Plus it’s educational, like casually stating that Beholders live underground. Not all kids know that kind of stuff!

    At first I was a bit iffy on the music and animation, but then it sucked me in and I really started liking it by the end.
