Ned is the name of a cute, white Furby-looking character from Twenty One Pilots' music video for the song "Chlorine." As Tyler Joseph mentioned, "Ned is a very important person to us. He’s been a friend of ours for a while, we’re now just introducing him to the world and our fans have adopted him and made him their own. That was really cool to see. 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. 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 realise 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."
