    If I wanted to watch Rob Lowe interviews I would follow Rob Lowe’s youtube channel… I don’t, so why am I seeing this crap? I dig LeVar, but would much rather see Conan interviewing him.

    Thank you, algorithm, for FINALLY getting Rob’s participation in the Team CoCo lexicon of amazing people into my fyp without me actively seeking them out.

    When I was like 5 and 6 years old, I’d watch Next Gen with my parents, and Reading Rainbow, and I didn’t realize they were the same person because at that age I didn’t really realize that the characters on screen were portrayed by real people called actors. So when my parents pointed this out to me, Levar became the first person who I was aware of as a celebrity.

    This is why you have to love interviewers like Nardwuar and Sean Evans. Every question could have easily been answered with a quick Google search. You can tell Burton is annoyed. The job of an interviewer is to do the least bit of research. You do a lot of research if you are a good interviewer. This was hard to watch. Come on Rob

    The guy interviewing Levar comes off kinda unlikable lol.
    At 0:36 he seems to get genuinely confrontational when sternly saying “no it was not” and then repeating it again.

    Levar seemed annoyed lmao

    He has such a remarkable career and I was always so curious about what it was like for him to wear that. Thank you for your work and this interview!

    Funny that Alex told LeVar that “your authentic voice as a storyteller is the only thing you’ve got.” It turns out that Alex Haley plagiarized “Roots” from the novel “The African” by Harold Courlander.
