And then there are the *extremely* unique videos that even manage to attract millions of viewers worldwide and receive billions of views.

This entertaining five-minute film introduces young children to the various colors using poorly animated farm eggs as the teaching tool. The film itself is narrated in Russian and teaches children the Russian names for various hues.

A husband and wife team founded the channel in 2006; it now has 139 million subscribers, a Netflix show, a live touring show, and a podcast called “storytime.”
