From oatmeal to apples, Justine Ezarik explains it all.
For 10 years Justine Ezarik has created YouTube content under the iJustine moniker, and now we finally get to know the motivation behind her early film choices in a new video.
Like Scorsese and Spielberg, Ezarik takes us on a journey through her early YouTube days with a director’s commentary that sheds light on the artistic choices of works like the Oatmeal Project and Have You Seen My Stylus.
Ezarik illuminates key aspects of the videos, from explaining what a stylus or a palm pilot even is for the millennial audience, and how having an apple thrown at her head was a prediction of the rise of Apple a year later.

OK, so she might be exaggerating a bit, but her sense of humor is why Ezarik has been a fixture in the digital video community for a decade. We can’t wait to see what director’s commentary looks like in another 10 years.
A former YouTube reporter for the Daily Dot, Rae Votta has more than a decade of experience in the digital and entertainment industries. Her work has appeared on AOL, Huffington Post, Out Magazine, Logo, VH1, Current TV, Billboard, and NYMag. She joined Netflix in 2016.
