    The Crippin Virus…Will Smith crip walks on all the LoCs

  3. Pickles Mcgee January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    I thought it was a virus contracted from black people with blue bandanas in the ghetto….

  4. Underrated Commentator January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Spoilers ARE in this video. Be warned.

  5. keon Lilbeezy wynn January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    But he didn’t find a “stray dog” and grow attached to it. His daughter gave Sam to him before she died in the helicopter crash

  6. Hunter K9 January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    RiP doggo :,(

  7. Lorenz Dictado January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Wait, was I the only one who noticed that he said that Will Smith found a stray dog? Sam wasn’t a stray, he got her for her son and he kept her when jaden smith handed her back when they took off in the helicopter

  8. Keanu Williams January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    this is a bad joke but this virus didn't like blood because it's "Krippin". if you get the joke…. im not good at all.

  9. B. Longstreet January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    The dog wasn't a stray, it was the family dog in the movie you can see Neville holding the dog when his wife and daughter were killed. This adds more depth to the connection to Samantha especially when he has to mercifully kill the dog when she began to turn.

  10. akeel brown January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Imagine going out to space before the outbreak and coming back to see it all

  11. Maximum Black January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    anyone read the book? i like the part with his neighbour lol

  12. isaac tate January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    I don't know if I'm fascinated or horrified.

  13. Tone202 January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    were are the shorts

  14. Real Nigga January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    The alternate ending is the real ending

  15. Angel Alvarado January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    very interesting

  16. Ronald Macdonald January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Imagine how shitty it would be to have a pathogen that ends up destroying humanity named after you.

  17. triggerhappy0404 January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Her friend, not "master."

  18. Keoni Jones January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Bloods vs kripps

  19. Kenneth Webb January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Sam was his pet before the virus

  20. Hype Posse January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Crippin virus

  21. 1978 32 January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    The dog was his kids. Had it since it was a puppy.

  22. edwin hernandez January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Not a straight dog.

  23. yassine jaoiadi January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    The dog wasn't stray it was raised by Robert since it was young

  24. Oliver Richetti January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Samantha is not a stray dog. The dog was given to him by his daughter before she left in the helicopter.

  25. Stormynature January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Thank you for pointing out what "I am Legend" actually meant within the book as opposed to the many misinterpretations out there. Subbed for this and an appreciation for the perspectives you have been presenting with the various virus explanations. Best of luck in the future.

  26. gl0inup January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    That wasn't a stray dog and this will forever be my favorite movie of all time

  27. panzer kid January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    The dog was his daughter's

  28. zerozano January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    How do you "cure" cancer. It's not like a strain of a virus or bacteria. It's a mutation; breast cancer is not the same as testicular cancer.

    Also, I don't see the comparison between the MC and the "vampires" as the infected were essentially the aggressors, hence why they have taken over. The only way they could stop this was by finding a cure themselves. shouldn't they have known that their own kind were aggressive?

  29. PassTheDraco January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    I always thought they were zombies… lmao

  30. The Chosen Traveler January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Hopefully this type of thing never happens but if it does I’ll be ready 😡

  31. RareHalfling January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    So everyone c walks.

  32. Leo Kilibarda January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    I think the virus makes people see others as the vampires and starts seeing things happening in the comic. But I have no idea how to explain the movie it’s self

  33. 3 edgy 4 u January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Bruh I love that movie

  34. Hoehner Tim January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Richard Matheson always did like bitter sweet endings to his stories.

  35. frank casieri January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    The dog wasn’t a stray it was the puppy from the beginning

  36. jermain propain January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Im just kickin kack watching this

  37. Number 69 January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Did anyone else get reminded of The Division when they saw that everyone was evacuating New York and it being Christmas time

  38. The King January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Deconstruct our notions of good and evil?

    Well, that depends if you have something that could falter enough for said deconstruction to begin. My Bible, for one, seems to hold up just fine.

  39. Weezy Squid January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    That wasn't a stray dog , that was his best friend raised as a puppy when his family was alive

  40. kirby march Barcena January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Well, turning humans into vampires really did made a cure for cancer, in a convoluted way.

  41. Riley Scout January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    this is an amazing channel wished I found it sooner

  42. poddel' nyy January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    This movie gave me Krippin depression.

  43. nate crozier January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    This is actually happening… the viral cancer cure at least

  44. Enzo Zuiani January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    It wasn't a stray dog it was a puppy that they had given to him by his son before they left off the helicopter

  45. Donkey Squidward January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    Really wish they made a third person game about this, kinda like The Last of Us but have more free roam

  46. Esteban Carrera January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    That's actually really cool I always wondered why it was called I'm legend I assumed it was because despite all odds nevil survived in a city full of zombie like creatures cured the cure to cancer that caused ppl to become filthy savages then died saving the ppl to pass on the cure so the living humans regarded him as a legend but the whole he was the monster single handedly committing mass Genocide to the darksiders becoming a legend of evil is even better

  47. Esteban Carrera January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    "Unfortunately that's all the time we have" boy this is YouTube you could make th at video 5 hours long if you wanted
    Also unrelated but when I was about 10 I watched the movie late at night and was perfectly fine the short clips added with the disk version specifically the one in India freaked me out so much I did not sleep for the next like legit 48 hours

  48. auron pedraza January 11, 2018 at 6:09 am

    you know that's from a 50s movie they decided to remake
