"Basically, since I was probably 15 years old, I kind of always had a dream of doing a Netflix marketing campaign for a streaming series that involved a painted school bus," he joked in an exclusive interview with BuzzFeed News. "I just sort of set out to make that happen, and I had to make a streaming series first so I could get the bus. And now, here we have it, and it's just a dream come true in ways that I never could've imagined."

The bus made its first stop in New York today, and it'll next hit up Austin and Los Angeles.
