The news publication Vogue started a series on Youtube where various celebrities are asked a series of 73 unexpected questions. These 10 to 12 minute videos have become increasingly popular as the selection of people featured has grown to include Zac Efron, Kim Kardashian and Zendaya. Because of the show’s success, the Redwood Bark has conducted its own version of 73 Questions with our very own celebrity.

Most people feel like they know him the way one might know a celebrity, so we thought it was time to finally obtain the answers to the questions we have all been waiting to discover.
