Uncle Pappy, also known as @unc.pap on Instagram, has recently gone viral with a video that is not only entertaining but also profoundly thought-provoking. This endearing figure, often compared to personas like Robin Williams and Burt Reynolds, shares a heartfelt monologue that resonates deeply with viewers.

In the video, Uncle Pappy reflects on historical footage of bustling New York City streets from 1912. He marvels at how stressed people seemed even back then and how they've all since passed on. This leads him to quote a profound thought he attributes to Anne Lorette, as mentioned by Pete Holmes: "Every hundred years, there's all new people, baby. Every hundred years, all new people." This realization serves as a reminder of the transient nature of life and the importance of cherishing the people we share the planet with today.

With his trademark Southern charm and wisdom, Uncle Pappy emphasizes the necessity of getting along with others, comparing our current global community to a chosen family. He encourages viewers to appreciate the uniqueness of living at the same time as others, whether it's a stranger in a grocery store or a neighbor down the street.

The video has sparked a variety of reactions from viewers. Some praise Uncle Pappy for his eloquence and deep message, expressing "Mad respect." Others humorously note his apparent lack of pants, with one comment stating, "Of course he doesn't have pants on, he's trying to catch a catfish while making the video. Multitasking!"

Uncle Pappy's message of kindness and mutual respect has struck a chord, with some even suggesting he should run for president. His positivity and unique perspective have earned him titles like "Buff Grandpa of the Swamp" and "Southern Hippie," with one user simply stating, "That dude is a vibe."

While some comments bring up serious societal issues, like intolerance and the need for progress in social justice, the overarching sentiment is one of admiration and gratitude. As one viewer aptly puts it, "I'm certainly glad I'm on Earth at the same time as this guy."

Uncle Pappy's viral video serves as a beautiful reminder to be kind and appreciate the fleeting moments we share with those around us. His wisdom and positivity continue to inspire many, proving that sometimes, the most profound messages come from the most unexpected places. Keep on rockin', Uncle Pappy!

Dude: “you can’t choose who you are on earth with” Me: does murder not exist anymore? Cause murder seems like choosing who you are on the planet with (or not with).

Burt Reynolds is right!




Eloquent, and with a deep message. Mad respect.


All well and good but please tell this to the white nationalist / anti-immigrant / anti-women’s rights / anti-Muslims people. I get the idea, but we can talk about tolerating the intolerant and how we don’t have to do it.
