An absolute classic story about a guy who went on the 'greatest weekend' of his life on a mate's stag do is 10 years old.
Back in those good old days we enjoyed the 2012 Olympics, Boris Johnson was hanging from a zipwire instead being of the actual prime minister and nobody had ever uttered the words 'Covid-19 pandemic' before.
It was a better time, not least because Mr Blobby terrorised Jack Whitehall on TV that year and everyone was still very excited about Game of Thrones, oh how naïve we were back then.
One of the best things to come out of that year was a video where a young lad called Thomas Gray recounted an amazing stag do he went on.
It all started when Tom's mate Jonny popped the question to Victoria and ended getting absolutely smashed in a nightclub.
Originally posting the hilarious video to his YouTube channel, Tom takes us all on a whirlwind tour of the best weekend of his life in legendary fashion.
Really, what makes the story is Tom's telling of it, delivering a five minute stream of pure, unfiltered consciousness where every word is a pageant and each moment is an opportunity to perform.
This could have been a simple tale about the lads going down to London, drinking a bit and having some fun but with Tom telling the story it's a procession of legendary moments that has to be seen to be believed.
He takes you on a magical journey from the 6:45 train down to London through trips to the cinema, Pizza Hut, Wetherspoons and getting invited back to a flat party which turned out to be for a bunch of 18-year-old students.
Eventually the stag do ends in a nightclub with all the lads gathered together in a 'mental huddle' before having a slap-up full English breakfast the next morning to take the edge off the hangover.
The video worked wonders for Tom, who later ended up getting his own BBC Three show The Ladventures of Thomas Gray and has since been working as a comedian.
He also more recently appeared in BBC comedy Peacock, which also features People Just Do Nothing star Allan Mustafa as identity crisis-stricken personal trainer Andy Peacock.
Tom plays Spooner, Peacock's buddy who lives on a boat.
He's come so far, but to us he'll always be that legend who made that classic video from 10 years ago.
Tom can also be contacted for a personalised voice message on Cameo, so you might be able to get him to do the whole routine again 10 years later, you can find him here.
