Ze Frank’s “Show” Ends, But Lives On Forever Thanks to Dewar’s

28470880.jpg

Web designer turned bedheaded performance artist turned vlog heartthrob turned official UnBeige Internet Crush Ze Frank posted his final show Saturday, a teary, black-and-white highlight reel from the past 250 episodes. Perhaps the most bizarre moment from the show’s final days was a cameo by Jack Black, who we learn from this LA Times article is one of Frank’s biggest celebrity fans (Ben Stiller is another):

“Ze Frank is a rare gem, a brilliant comedian with an artistic undertaste,” Black said. “He might be my hero.”

Also earlier in the week we learned that “The Show” will be preserved in online archives sponsored by Dewar’s Blended Scotch Whiskey. It seems appropriate that Frank’s grueling year-long daily experiment forced him to turn to whiskey, so we’re hoping they sent him a well-deserved case to enjoy today. Congrats, Ze. We will miss you.
