The internet is rife with examples of how weird and ridiculous we have become as a society. Sure, some of it is more fun-loving but other stuff is so pointless that we are left feeling a bit shaken and confused by it.
Take for example, this bizarre campaign started by a YouTube user named Dog Shit. He has made a pledge to eat a printed picture of How I Met Your Mother star, Jason Segel, every single day until the actor returns the favor.
What? Why would he think this could work?
In fact, there’s not even an explanation or description with the first video to give this any sort of context. The only thing that it says is “I will not stop” along with the hashtag #eatmyfacesegel.
Of course, Reddit is eating this up (pun totally intended) but people are already expressing concern for this guy’s health. First of all, it’s not really a good idea to eat paper at all but it’s definitely questionable to have some every day. Second, it would be one thing if it was just plain paper but there’s ink on it. Lots and lots of ink since Segel has a giant face. Just… no.
If you haven’t seen the video, you owe it to yourself to watch it. It’s more than four minutes long but the time will fly by as you sit there astonished watching this guy chomp down on printer paper as if he’s chewing on lettuce. Actually, come to think of it, he looked a bit like a koala chowing down on the image Jason Segel.
So far, there’s no indication that Segel is in on this or that he plans to engage this fool in any way but, hopefully, he will make a statement asking that this stop immediately because, as mystifying as it is, it’s also potentially dangerous.
