―Bill wurtz

William James "Bill" Wurtz II[1] (born: December 8, 1989 (1989-12-08) [age 32]) is an American YouTube musician and animator residing in upstate New York in the United States. Bill is known for the way he presents his videos, with surrealist and retro visual effects, satirical music, and dry humor, which has been highly acclaimed by his viewers.

He has also been known for his wildly popular video "history of the entire world, i guess".

History

billwurtz.com

Bill started his music career on his own website as opposed to YouTube. While he does post a lot of his songs on YouTube, all of his songs are posted on his own personal website. His first post was on 3rd March 2005 called "stuck in a rut".

The song was posted around the same time that YouTube was a dating site (when it was first starting out), but he wouldn't post another song on the website until 2009, this one is called, "the song song" which lasts for 3 minutes.

YouTube

Bill created his YouTube Channel on February 17, 2012, and posted his first video on September 9th, 2013. The video is simply called "die" which is only a ten-second video. In it, he just says "die" with video and music effects over the word.

The actual song was posted on his website on March 9th, 2010. From 2013 to Early 2016 he uploaded over 350 videos on his channel.

His most popular video is “history of the entire world, I guess”, a successor to his second most popular video, “history of japan”.

He went inactive in March 2019 after uploading a video titled "might quit". He stated that he was working on videos, but took longer to create them since he was in the process of learning new video editing and 3D animation software, including Blender.

On January 18, 2021, Wurtz returned, uploading the music video for a new original song "here comes the sun". Most notable about this video was the use of 3D graphics - unlike all of his prior videos before, made in an outdated version of Final Cut, this video was primarily made in Blender, with a notable change in style but a consistent theme of the classic Wurtz look and visuals.

Trivia

  • On his website, when a 404 page appears, it will say "oh no wear is my pink tutu" (example).
    • In the question tab on his website, if you ask "oh no wear is my pink tutu" it will bring you to a page that simply says "oh hear it is" (example).
  • His "I don't wanna go to school song" was made because one time outside of his home Bill was having a conversation with a woman who was going to college. When he said that he didn't, she tried to convince Bill that going to school was the best use of his time and that he should return. That's why he ends the song with "That girl made me feel blue cuz she told me I should stay in school".
