Last year, Wurtz created a meme when he made a video detailing the entire history of Japan. This year he decided to go one step further, and summarize the history of the entire world.

As the video says, it pretty much covers, well, everything. From when there were quarks and stuff.

To the Axum empire.

And Christopher Columbus.

To the financial crash.

To our modern day.

Of course, the new video has inspired memes.
