Sweeney as Billy Mays, George Watsky as William Shakespeare, DeStorm Power as Mr. T, Prank Vs.

Nice Peter has a second channel called NicePeterToo, the home of the Monday Show, Picture Songs, Question Songs, and BTS for the Season 1's Epic Rap Battles of History.

The Monday Show is a vlog that Peter puts up on NicePeterToo, it may contain some or all of the following parts.

   Twitter Question Time: He takes questions or comments from Twitter and responds to them.
   Twitter Songs: He asks on Twitter for ideas, and make a song about it.
   Viewer Mail: He reads letters from fans, as well as opens packages sent to his P.O. Box, the address for which is listed on NicePeterToo. He assures viewers that even though not all the mail can make it on the show, it is all loved and hugged and appreciated.
   The Slow-Motion Clip of the Day: A clip in slow motion.
   Chicken News: Seen only once, Peter talks about a news story that in some way, relates to chickens.
   Extreme For No Reason: A clip showing an exaggeration of an everyday task.
   Ending Song: A song used to close out the show, most often referencing the day of the week that the video is released (Monday).

Picture Songs are another specialty of the NicePeterToo channel. In these songs, pictures are lined up and shown to him on a screen, and he sings the first thing that comes to his mind. Such hits include "Nomnomnom Babies" and "Why are Japanese People So Weird", the second of which caused a small controversy, people claiming he was racist. In response to these allegations, Nice Peter responded with "White People Make Me Sad" to show that his racism is inclusive of all races and nationalities, and is not exclusive to the Japanese.

Last but not least are the NicePeterToo "Question Songs", consisting of questions taken from Facebook, Twitter or YouTube and their respective answers, done entirely in song. [edit] Discography
