Default More Twitter Extremes

HERE

If you could control another person's life for one week, what would you make them do?

You might want to start thinking about that because starting Monday, an advertising recruiter named David Perez will do whatever his Twitter followers tell him to do for one week. There's only one catch to what Perez is calling David On Demand: it must be legal. CNN first reported on Perez's experiment.

Perez's decision to allow Twitter followers to rule his life for a week came after his boss told him that the only way the company would pay for his trip to the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival in France was if he allowed Twitter users to tell him what to do while in the country.

To keep his experiment on the up-and-up, Perez will be recording everything with a Webcam attached to glasses. He will stream the video over the Web, without interruption, for the entire week. He told CNN that he will point the glasses away from him when he sleeps (about three hours per day). The camera will also be pointed away when he's taking showers and using the restroom.

Those who want to tell David what to do will need to do so on Twitter. If you want to watch throughout the week, go to the David On Demand Web page.

Perez's life is about to change, and it's up to you to determine how that happens. To get you started: Perez told CNN that he's afraid heights.

lol pretty ridiculous..

I can see some people throwing ridiculous things out there for him to do (I'm guessing he's going to pick and choose things)

David, Stab yourself with some scissors in the hand!
David, Sell all your wordly belongings on ebay (without reserves)
David, change your name by depoll to 'AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA'
David, Find the tallest hill / mountain in your area and roll down it from top to bottom

All legal right? I've come up with these in a minute, I bet theres some crazy legal things he could do, and the only catch is it has to be legal??

Pfft.

This should be interesting. I'm sure there's people out there who can think up some pretty whack stuff for this guy to do for a week.

^ I like the change your name to "AAAAA etc" and the rolling down a hill, that would ruin your day.

i don't know if he might post like 5 things he wants/needs to do each day and the people vote for which they want to see or if it will be completely open to suggestions or if people will be able to vote for each other suggestions....should be interesting.

Ten paypal dollars says he's gonna stop when someone finds a loophole.
Here is the loophole.......Bang your girlfriend/wife.
And he will have to film this.
And he won't, for that is porn.
And then he will end it.
And will realize the stupidness of this idea.
