Controlled by the internet for 24 hours – Challenge

Controlled by the internet for 24 hours – Challenge

23 hours in.
There’s only one word going through my mind.
So I have an idea.
Here’s how it will work.
We have a blank room.
We have a 24 hour livestream.
We have a reddit page.
Whichever tasks get most upvoted…
I must do.
I cannot leave the room.
I cannot do anything illegal.
This is an experiment to see what the internet will do to a man.
Also it’s just kinda fun.
In theory.
This is controlled by the web.
So we just posted the teaser
And people are very creative.
Open the pickle jar using only jump rope and your legs.
Find a way to put all of the seperate lunchable somewhere on your face.
Leave the room, without leaving the room.
Ah this is gonna be a trip man.
This is gonna be a trip.
So we have about 24 hours to go
And I’m just getting the room setup.
I’m also building this camera-rig out of PVC pipe to
give kind of a dynamic angle throughout the stream.
Hello friends.
I hope you’re well.
So they had me stand in a puddle of water
with socks on and rap the entire Bee movie script.
“According to all known laws of aviation..
There’s no way a bee should be able to fly
There’s heating, there’s cooling
and stirring.
‘Cause bees don’t care what humans think to fly
You were thinking of what?
There’s heating, there’s cooling, there’s stirring
And learn your lines sir.”
This whole experiment stream started out fun.
Chat was excited. I was excited.
Then came the second task.
“Thank you for calling GameStop!”
Okay! So calling GameStops and asking for BattleToads
is an internet prank that originated on 4chan long ago.
Ugh, this is very painful.
I do not want to do this.
2 hour in. They’re telling me to do nothing.
I’m actually looking forward to this one.
When streaming sometimes you try to be entertaining.
Here’s a task that basically says put all that aside and just be.
So really what is doing anything?
Is doing anything doing something?
The wood grain is starting to move.
I feel the blood rushing from my head to my toes.
Create a song in an hour.
Now I’m not a musician
But thankfully those watching helped crowd-source the lyrics, background music, and voice.
Coconut thank you for bringing it home there.
Normally I would be clocking out of the office now.
Not today, let’s knock these out until midnight.
Draw my life in Virtual Reality
Whip and nae nae for an hour
Read Ratatoullie for an hour… ASMR style.
There is excellence all around you.
You need only be aware, and stop, and savor it.
Was I doing this experiment because I wanted to?
Am I even me? Is the internet me? Are we the internet?
What is free will?
Holy a random item and talk about free will for an hour.
You can use a boot as a glove.
That gets to the core of free will.
Punctuation, unfluction, makes you think I’m saying something important
energetic point on a sentence about free
for a second I try to make myself believe I’m saying something of value.
But really,
I’m spitting into a mic, holding a boot, talking.
Never has a pool float been this
Yeah I feel good man. I feel re-energized.
So um this is kind of a cool task.
My first moment of conciousness was…
I specifically remember
I was sitting in my mother’s lap
And she was stirring like a bowl of oatmeal, a bowl of cereal.
First memory
And I said
“How are you doing that? How are you stirring that bowl of cereal?”
That’s what I was trying to convey, I was trying to ask her how is she doing that?
But she couldn’t understand me because I didn’t know how to speak.
Another memory, this is in New York when I was a kid
I’m standing in line, I think we’re waiting to go to recess or something.
And this kid infront of me, his back is to me,
He turns around, looks at me in the eyes.
Straight up, socked me.
Bam, right there. I lean back.
I’m like
I must have cried I mean I was a kid
I didn’t fight back-
Good lord, Lucy just threw up on the
Aww Lucy, you okay dude?
We’re gonna have to take a hiatus on this live story
I gotta go be a dog dad
Originally I was worried that through the night
the goblins and ghouls of the internet would come out and sabotage the experiment
But the contrary happened.
I opened a public discord call and we just talked.
For the first time in this experiment it wasn’t just me talking to a lense
There were other human beings through that lense
sharing stories over the digital campfire.
Y’know Jak, I think we might have found something more interesting that controlled by the web
I forgot to mention it’s my birthday
And naturally, the internet made me eat a pickle instead
and throw away my birthday cake slice by slice.
(I hate pickles)
Jokes on them. They didn’t say how large the slices have to be.
11 hours to go. Let’s knockout some more tasks.
Play Virtual Reality
Perform Shrek 1
“yes well actually, that would be a giant. Now Ogres? Oh they’re much worse.”
Take a break. Thank god.
These next two morning tasks worked my brain, which was a nice change.
It’s about 7:18am.
We can’t make it too complicated, I only have 45 minutes.
We gotta keep it simple.
I like to call this game “Cool Beans”
They’ve made em taste pretty good.
It’s time for the sketch challenge.
We’re all just POV machines aren’t we?
Viewing our perspective, within this experience.
Oh yes!
That was the longest one.
Back in the early days before Steam & VR
We would go into HTML5 and Flash websites
That had hundreds of free games video games.
A student could slip under the watchful eye of a teacher
by heading to a “100% educational website”
I gotta call my mom.
As a Gen-Z’er
I’ve grown up with the internet.
And the internet has grown up with me.
They say “blink ten times”
It’s a weird beast.
One that distracts you.
One that guides you.
It makes you angry, or it can make you happy.
Through all of the technological white-noise
There can be memories, moments
made that 50 years ago, would have been impossible.
“A computer is built with electronic components”
I’m wrapping it up.”
And I for one
Am proud to be apart of the generation that will say Banana.
As we watch through a screen known as the world wide web.
Much peace.
And hey-
I’ll see ya-
The Metaverse.

  1. i missed the week in vr livestream, minecraft vr livestream, and this livestream too!? where can we get notified on upcoming events?

  2. Man actually being there during the stream to hear you describe free will for an hour holding a shoe was magical, it takes talent to stretch out a concept like that for that long and I was amazed you pulled it off to hilarious results.

  3. If I made a video of being in VR for 24.1 hours, is that a lighthearted funny take on your video, or a blatant rip off?

  4. Ayy my comments came up in this video.. thanks. I watched for about 4 hours and what an experience it was. I even stayed for the entire rest hour, because of the nice people to talk to in chat. Great video and stream man keep it up 🙂

  5. Thank you for this video! I love your content so much. You actually make me.think your channel is so unique and wonderful and I love it!!n

  8. Hey Disrupt Family. I missed the livestream on this one. Dang jobs and stuff. I’m screaming from the rooftops on many platforms. Let’s make this channel even bigger!!!

  9. I’m not going to lie here. I would love to do something like this myself because it seems like an interesting experience and would be somehow worth my time

  10. everyone needs to give a fat F for the shutting down of i spent most of my education hours on that site and it breaks my heart to see it shut down. R.I.P. cmg .

  11. Every video from this channel is amazing. Also how did you make a game so well so fast? Is it actually that easy or was that not your first game?
