Logan Paul is heading to Antarctica to prove the Earth is flat

Um, what is going on?
Logan Paul is known for his bizarre stunts but an entire Flat Earth documentary? Truly wild. The YouTuber dropped a 50 minute video, titled Flat Earth: To The Edge and Back, which delved into the theory that the earth is actually flat.
You might not remember, but in 2018, Logan announced he was indeed a Flat Earther. The Flat Earth society distanced themselves from Logan and insisted he was not affiliated with them in any way. Despite this, Logan is off to Antartica to prove it – apparently.
In the video, Logan declared he would join an expedition to Antarctica, where Flat Earthers believe you can see the Earth's edge, therefore proving their theory. They claim that no-one except the military is allowed down there and it's heavily guarded so that we don't discover the truth.

Logan is not alone in his thinking either, a poll by YouGov asked 8,215 US adults if they thought the Earth was and 84% stated they believed the Earth was round. Oh, right…
Logan even headed to the 2018 Flat Earth International Conference in Denver, Colorado, where he spoke to promininant figures of the movement. "If I'm going to put my name out there [as a Flat Earth supporter], I want to know the facts," he said.
"The fact that we haven't been to the moon in over 50 years, the fact that the moon emits its own light.
"Some of the best scientists can't explain gravity; Neil Degrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, in the end, do they even know?”
The whole documentary is pretty bizarre to be honest and we quickly learn this is could well be a parody. From Logan's mate claiming to have seen the edge of the earth, to smashing up glass globes around his house and even interviewing elementary students.
The Flat Earth believers are actually real, hence the statement, convention and speaking to real life believers.
By the end of it all, Logan comes to the realisation that the Earth is not flat. He said: "No I don't think that the Earth is flat. That's the dumbest shit I've heard in my life. However, at this point I would go as far to say that I'm not sure if there is an Earth at all..."
So is he just trolling us? Probably, and that's 50 minutes and two seconds we're never getting back again.
