Logan Paul’s Flat Earth Documentary Was A Pisstake All Along
Logan Paul is many things, a vlogger, an actor, amateur boxer and controversial internet personality, but a Flat Earther he is not.
Yesterday his 50-minute-long documentary about the popular conspiracy theory, FLAT EARTH: To The Edge And Back, dropped on his YouTube channel, receiving over one million views within 24 hours of uploading.
In the film Logan speaks to real life believers in the theory, even attending the Flat Earth International Conference in Colorado.
You can watch it here:
At the beginning of the video Logan is an outright denier, but the documentary supposedly tracks his journey to becoming a believer, with the YouTube star even revealing he is prepared to travel to Antarctica to prove the theory.
While speaking to Robbie Davidson, the founder of the Flat Earth International Conference, at the event, Logan said:
I am that guy that will make it to the edge. If I’m going to put my name out there (as a Flat Earth supporter), I want to know the facts.
Some of the best scientists can’t explain gravity; Neil Degrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, in the end, do they even know?
I want to explore for myself and keep an open mind. There is a stigma of being a Flat Earther and if I’m going to do it I want to know the facts.
Logan really did have us all convinced for a while he is now a genuine Flat Earther, but the documentary has been revealed to be a pisstake all along.
There are satirical clues dropped throughout the film which indicates it is a mockumentary, but in case you missed them the final scene gives it away.
When Logan is asked at the end whether he believes the Earth really is flat, he says:
No I don’t. I think that’s the dumbest shit I’ve heard in my life. However, I would go as far to say that at this point, I’m not sure … there is an Earth at all.
And in typical Logan Paul style, he then breaks into a rap about how ‘there is no Earth’ and that ‘people on Earth know there is no Earth’.
The documentary has received mixed reactions, but some on Twitter have praised the irony and humour behind it.
The BBC’s Dave Lee tweeted:
Ok, that Logan Paul Flat Earth documentary is excellent. I mean it. A really clever film… I was second-guessing the whole way through. If you don’t get the joke, you perhaps *are* the joke. Sacha Baron Cohen eat your heart out.

Cringing so hard trying to watch this logan Paul doc about flat earth. Like the editing is good but why so much theatrics and fake acting. Losing my interest but I’m giving it a chance….
Can’t even lie, this Logan Paul Flat Earth Doc is absolutely hilarious, it’s really well done, fair play. Flat earthers on strings.
It might be worth a watch then!
