UPDATE: The challenge is now over. Two amazing gentlemen have completed it. Here’s their video and their live reactions.
Two months ago, YouTube extended the maximum video length to ten hours. While this is great for feature filmmakers, the obvious trick is to take a normal popular YouTube video and loop it for ten hours.
Which YouTuber TehN1ppe immediately did to 60 videos. He’s been banned from making more until he deals with a copyright-issue takedown, but the remaining 59 videos have earned about three million views. (A view is reportedly registered after about thirty seconds of play.)
And if you record yourself watching one in its entirety, we’ll pay you $100.
- Pick any ten-hour video by TehN1ppe.
- Record yourself watching it all the way through. Sound must be on, you and the video must be present in-shot, and any discovered trickery disqualifies you.
- Send us the video.
- Collect $$$.
Good luck, and God have mercy on your soul. I don’t suggest the following example.
