No, Ice Cream Sandwich is not any sort of YouTube food channel (unless multiple references to pizza would designate it as such). It’s the animation channel of a guy named Andy who can’t wait to tell you his many funny stories and thought-based meanderings through his five-minute animations.
Whether it’s ranking pizza toppings, discussing getting appendicitis or talking about growing up with two sisters, Ice Cream Sandwich has plenty to say and plenty of jokes to tell.
Andy encourages people to try things that fall outside of their comfort zone because they may discover that they’ll enjoy it. His videos are based around subjects and life stories he wants to talk about, and each video contains many jokes for its viewers.
In a couple videos, Andy refers to himself as an idiot. Light swearing may be heard, primarily misuses of God’s name but also including “h—,” “a–” and “crap.” Andy occasionally references alcohol, and he also tells a story of a man attempting to ship a box of marijuana at Andy’s job. Videos contain comical slapstick violence. Because of this (and likely due to compliance with COPPA), Ice Cream Sandwich lists its videos as appropriate for viewers ages 13 and up.
Ice Cream Sandwich isn’t likely to teach you anything new, but sometimes we just like to use YouTube to take a moment and relax. In the latter case, Ice Cream Sandwich just might accomplish the task. Parents will just want to be aware of the channel’s light language concerns before allowing their children to munch on this video sandwich.
Kennedy Unthank studied journalism at the University of Missouri. He knew he wanted to write for a living when he won a contest for “best fantasy story” while in the 4th grade. What he didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was the only person to submit a story. Regardless, the seed was planted. Kennedy collects and plays board games in his free time, and he loves to talk about biblical apologetics. He doesn’t think the ending of Lost was “that bad.”
