The School Of Life (YouTube Originals)Alain de Bottons self-help organisation has always been in the business of popularising philosophical thought. However, with this new series he seems to have edged close to self-parody. The concept is simple, yet odd, with De Botton asking a series of YouTube creators and influencers such puzzlers as What is the secret of happiness? and Is democracy dangerous? So, Canadian gaming YouTuber Azzyland talks Daoism, LA internet comedians Hannah Stocking and Anwar Jibawi explain capitalism by selling cupcakes, and prank bloggers the Martinez Twins tackling anxiety with aerial yoga. Both anodyne and infuriating, its also fascinating to see such pressing questions tackled in a manner so utterly detached from the real world. AM
