Casually Explained creates short, comedic, animated videos that sarcastically describe everyday things such as tipping, relationships, and other every day topics in a dry and deadpan tone. He uses a rudimentary and elementary art style, typically using stick-figures to represent his characters.
The name "Casually Explained" was named after his attempt to casually explain math, primarily, because at the time he was being inspired by math YouTubers, while studying math in post-secondary school. However, on December 8, 2015, he made his first recognition by ironically explaining how to sketch a polynomial function.
