Ned holds particular significance to both Dun and Josh and the Trench era. The entity first appeared as a strange, white, Furby-looking creature in the “Chlorine” music video. Then, back in February 2019, Joseph finally revealed what Ned represents in the Trench era.

“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 said. “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. And so… yeah, Ned saved us. We made the record we made because of Ned.”

Shortly after this, a massive Ned mural popped up in the middle of Central London. Finally, Ned made his live performance debut with twenty one pilots back in May. The duo performed “Level Of Concern” on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and Ned can be seen rocking out along with them.
