Title: Glitter Bomb
Post by: Benny B on December 20, 2018, 10:32:35 AM
I typically don't contribute to the spread of viral videos, but this one hits home for me.  With over 36M views in just 3 days, I'm sure some of you have already seen this, but for those who haven't, please enjoy.  It's worth every second of the 10 minute run time.

This is what those soulless bastards that took Super Smash Bros off my porch deserve.

Indeed, I watched it when it "only" had 1.3m views.  Was thinking, wow, that's pretty costly, 4 phones, motor, cell plans.

Youtube will pay roughly $8,000 per million hits X 36m = $288,000 and growing.  Now that it's reached Scoop, it's really going to take off.

Yup, watched it a few days ago, told all my coworkers and my barber they needed to watch it.  Now that it's hit my hipster barber shop (he hadn't heard about it), I'm sure this count will go up.

edit: 37.5M now.

I saw it yesterday.  It's fantastic.

He actually edited out about 90 seconds or so (two of the reactions) because the friend-of-a-friend that he loaned it to staged those with some friends.  He claims he didn't know, and apologized on Twitter (https://twitter.com/MarkRober/status/1075767629703372800) for the "fake" footage.  His YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/c/markrober) page has some great stuff.

What's the hipster barber shop? Assuming in Denver. I need someone who can manage to not destroy this flow.

Calling yourself a rocket scientist just because you work at JPL is like saying you can dunk because you played high school basketball.

The ratio of claim to the rocket scientist title to those that have actually earned it is remarkably lopsided

Holy crap, I didn't know that was good! It's literally 3 blocks from my house. Thanks for the tip.

Saw a comment that would make the package contraption so much better.

Instead of glitter?  Spiders.  Imagine the screams of abject terror as the thief realizes 500 spiders were sprayed all over them, their car, bedroom, etc.

So, so delicious.

What about the ink they put in bank money bags?

Still remember the first time I saw a stripper with a glitter bomb on her poopchute.  Fantastic.

That's bad too, but ..ink is meant to stain the person so they get caught / the money gets caught somewhere.  They'd clean that up.

Spiders .. you'd never get them all and the psychological terror that they are everywhere .. you'd need to sell your house/car.
