Yesterday I Asked You, often abbreviated as YIAY, is a series created by Jack Douglass. It is based off of the part in JackAsk in which Jack asks his fans through Twitter a question, and reads out the most humorous answers. YIAY started with the first episode, "What would you do if you won the Super Bowl?", and before that, Jack announced the series with the video titled "New Series!!!". Jack actually started YIAY on his secondary channel, but moved it to Jacksfilms since the series became very popular, after just a few episodes.
