The YouTube website is becoming
increasingly popular with normal, everyday folk having the ability to upload
their own videos and material. One can visit the website and find just about
anything that tickles their fancy. But just how much time does one have to sit
in front of their computer watching somebody else’s video? Well, if you want to
watch the longest YouTube video ever published, you will need a total of nine
hours and fifteen minutes.
Charles Trippy created the video that stays within the website’s 100-megabyte
limit. The video starts out with Trippy speaking into the camera and a warning
flashing across the screen, “This will be dumb.” The rest of the video seems to
consist mainly of Charles just hanging out in his living room with two other
young men, a girl, and a dog. Is it dumb? Well, if you enjoy watching people
hang out in their living room for nine hours then no. But who knows if that’s
all that happens? You need to have the time and patience to sit and watch the
video in its entirety to find that out.
