A funny hint:

Did you maybe guess what the first four lines mean by themselves? Well, SOMEONE didn't....

The first five lines are a reference to

https://youtu.be/MCuCBt24hAk this video, namely the animation at 9:39. The video is of the game Telestrations, played with various Youtube content creators; each player in the game receives either an animation explaining a concept (with no narration) or a verbal explanation of a topic (with no accompanying animation). That player then makes a corresponding animation or verbal explanation, which is then passed on to the next player.

Jabril, the player at the aforementioned timestamp, is the person referenced in the hint; missing the fact that 🌼☀🍂❄ refer to seasons, he simply reads out "Flower, 1 to 3, sun, 1 to 3, leaf, 1 to 3, snowflake, 1 to 3, replaces from sun 2 to snowflake 1 in the sequence." This is what the first five lines represent.

which means "Tom" must be

Tom Scott, who talked about bartender's elbow.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling! This looks like the correct answer, but could you add more detail (about the context of the video, and why the first five lines are a reference to it)? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I've added a further explanation of what the first five lines mean in the context of the video. Hopefully this is a more complete answer now. $\endgroup$ Jul 16 '21 at 5:43
