    Sometimes the world feels boring. All the remote islands are visited, the arctic conquered, the dense jungles discovered. Except, there is still a place to explore: A wet deadly desert where mysterious creatures live in total darkness: The deep sea. Let us dive down.

      Hi Kurzgesagt!
      I wanna ask you something.
      I know that your videos have subtitles in a lot of idioms; in spanish too (obviously).
      But I see very few people who speak Spanish, so I think "If your YouTube channel translate from German to English, why not do the same.
      So, the thing that I wanna ask to you is that you give me permission to do it.
      (Sorry if a write something wrong, my English is not the best)

                      You guys should consider some VR integration, similar to interactive films like this. Deep Sea, space, and other videos of your would be stunning in an immersive environment.
