It's safe to say that at one point in our lives, we've all, in one way or another, taken pleasure over using Comic Sans as a font. Whether in school papers or projects, posters, or email signatures, you have to admit that using the font made you feel, um, cool and artsy (high five if you're cringing at the thought of it). And we don't blame you—the rest of the world thought so, too!

If you come to think of it, there has never been a font that evoked so many memories and strong feelings as much as Comic Sans, and for that, we have its creator, Vincent Connare, to thank for.

Watch the interesting video below from Great Big Story to find out why and what inspired him to make the infamous font.
