Sometimes I have to comb through the recesses of YouTube to find junked videos and forgotten footage that is just amazing. Sometimes it comes to me. I am the YouTube Treasure Hunter. Every week, I brave spider videos, footage of tornadoes and the occasional inexplicable zit-popping upload to find some of the rarest jewels YouTube has to offer.
Oh, there’s gold in them thar hills, but sometimes you just have to wade through a ton of crap to get to it.
This week’s treasure? Imagine a deeply cerebral mentalist who can read your mind through the computer. Okay, this guy ain’t it. This bizarre Goth dude, probably Dan Sperry like the YouTube channel says, is a Goth guy, but he doesn’t look like he’s comfortable with the look (just my read on it). Anyhow, he’s got a mental game he’d like to play with you. He’s sort of like Jigsaw without the cleverness or killer contraptions. But don’t hold that against him, because if this trick works, it’s pretty cool. The only problem with a video like this? It doesn’t really work with repeat viewings, unlike some of the interactive mental stuff out there. What I’m saying is it relies on probability rather than number logic. But if you’ve got an easily rattled grandma with a heart condition and a fear of the Devil, this is a video you should definitely show her (if you’re trying to get an inheritance, you evil bastard).
Yeah, he guessed wrong for me too. But then, I knew more or less what he was up to and purposefully went “outside-the-box.” You just heard the directions wrong, probably.
Stay tuned for next Sunday, treasure hunters! I’ve got something that really whips! No, it isn’t a towel … you’ll just have to tune in.
