Reddit is an entertainment, social news networking service, and news website where registered community members can submit content, such as text posts or direct links, making it essentially an online bulletin board system. The Meatsleep community has created what is known as a "subreddit" called "VideoMeat," which updates about anything to do with Meatsleep.

BackgroundEdit

After Meatsleep had formally announced their departure from YouTube in the video "No More.," the Reddit community had suggested to Meat that they participate in an "AMA" (for "Ask Me Anything").

On 26 January, 2016 at 9:02 PM, Reddit user IAmSoVeryBored123 (known on YouTube as CreepypastaArchives) sent a message to Meatsleep which read: "Now that meatsleep and sewnkin are over, will you reupload every video, so that we can reflect? Or is this it?" Meatsleep responded an hour later with: "Make a list of all questions. Take your time. One list."[1] The next day, IAmSoVeryBored123 made these messages public, and requested a completed list within sixteen hours.[2]

On 28 January, 2016 at 1:25 AM, Meatsleep sent another message to CreepypastaArchives which said "53 questions is okay. More questions are also okay. Take your time."[3] This, in turn, lengthened the time for another two days.

The AMA was initially completed and submitted on 28 January, 2016. It featured the requested fifty-three questions, and also included a message from the author to Meatsleep, which praised Meat and explained the source of the questions. After many complaints, a "last chance" AMA was held for the people who missed their chance on submitting questions of their own.[4] On 30 January, 2016, the AMA was updated with forty-seven more questions, making a total of one hundred questions.[5]

Months passed, and people began to doubt that the AMA would materialise.[6][7][8][9][10] Five months would pass before an update would arise. Within that time, Meatsleep teased with a video titled "38 204" released on April Fools Day, which proved that Meatsleep was still active.[11]

Answers videoEdit

On 15 May, 2016, Meatsleep released a video titled "answers," which nontraditionally answered Reddit's AMA questions. Rather than on Reddit, the questions were answered in the description and comments of the video released. The first fifty answers were in the description, and the last fifty were in the comments. The video was taken down within an hour, but the video and the answers were all habitually archived.
