Neil Cicierega is a content creator who has been making weird, wonderful things online since he was a teenager. If you don't know him from his music as Lemon Demon then you might know him from his Potter Puppet Pals youtube series or his series of mash-up albums or his youtube videos or from any number of one-off creative endeavors.
