One artist had made our twenty one pilots dreams come true with her adorable Ned doll that we need in our life.
In case you don’t know who Ned is, he’s a white, Furby-looking creature in the “Chlorine” music video.
One artist @oviyvo regularly makes intricate plush toys that are super cute. Her most recent being a giant “Ned” doll that she made as a gift for the band.
“YOU GUYS ARE CRAZY! You just break my Instagram with comments, thanks for such an amazing feedback. It means a lot to me!” the artist wrote. “I didn’t have enough time to take photos, because I was in a hurry to go to the concert and finished Ned at the last minute. it was made specifically for TØP as a gift, hope they got it.”
On her Instagram memory titled “Ned” she even shows her dancing to “Chlorine” at their concert. She also stated that she plans to make more soon so that’s a win for us.
“Planning to make a smaller copy very soon. I am happy to share my art with you, hope you will follow me further,” the post reads. “It’s very big and really hard to make, I had never done anything that size. There was not enough time, so now I would have done a lot of things differently, but this is a great experience and precious memories for me.”

Ваша поддержка многое значит для меня! Я не успела сделать хороших фотографий, потому что доделывала Нэда в последнюю минуту, перед концертом. Он стал подарком для TØP 💛 Было довольно сложно делать такой размерчик, сейчас я бы конечно многое в нем исправила, но это был замечательный опыт и воспоминания. Я планирую сделать его уменьшенную версию в будущем… СПАСИБО всем еще раз🔥💛 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fanart #chlorine #twentyonepilots #ned #21pilots #fanarttwentyonepilots #clinique #TØP
The Russian-based artist has a shop that you can check out here, although a Ned doll is not yet available for sale. We absolutely need one —or a dozen— of these crazy dolls in our lives to show off our twenty one pilots fandom.
Recently, twenty one pilots opened up about Ned and gave more information to fans about what Ned means.
In a video chat available on Russian social media service VK, and transcribed here on Reddit, you can take in Tyler Joseph’s explanation of how Ned’s birth actually helped form the basis of Trench. And eventually “saved” the album:
“Ned really does represent a lot of things but specifically, I guess you would say… it really represents this idea of creativity and trying to take care of it and trying to please it… or appease it,” Joseph says. “It’s kinda that thing in you that tells you whether or not something is good and when you get to the stage we’re at you realize listening to that becomes more and more important because a lot of people start talking and trying to influence you and the decisions you can make creatively.”
“Yeah, Ned saved us. We made the record we made because of Ned. He’s on tour with us now, he’s got his own bunk on the tour bus. He couldn’t make it to the interview today, he slept in. He’s bad with alarms but I think we’ll be able to wake him for the show tonight,” he continued.
Joseph also clarified that despite popular belief, Ned is not a gremlin, so make sure not to refer to him as such.
Be on the lookout for any more Ned appearances as the pilots take over the entire world on their massive Bandito Tour.
