Why Trust Is Worth It


“Trust is a confusing thing. It seems so simple, but when you try to pin it down, it can so elusive,” Ze Frank says at the beginning of his latest video Why Trust is Worth It. The YouTube comedian known for his True Facts series stops joking for a second to offer an insightful and moving take on the importance of trust. The video features the hypnotizing movements of Cirque Du Soleil acrobats Alya Titarenko and Gael Ouisse as Ze Frank narrates. Acrobats trust each other with their lives, and Frank uses this as a philosophical springboard into how and why trust acts as a “luxury that affords us to stop thinking, to stop worrying that someone won’t catch us if we fall.”
