Britain Is Captivated By Live Footage Of People Trying To Cross A Big Puddle
This is incredible. Truly, truly incredible.
Here is some footage from Periscope of people trying to cross a giant puddle in Newcastle.
And join in with the thousands of others watching.
Look at this.
Look at these comments.
Richard Rippon from marketing consultants Drummond Central, who are operating the camera, said: "The puddle's opposite our offices and been building up for the last few days. It's causing quite a bit of amusement and someone had the bright idea of streaming it on Periscope. It started with just a couple of hundred people watching and this afternoon it's gone absolutely crazy.".
Rippon added: "We've enjoyed the various ways people have tried to cross it. There's been parkour, Jesus-walking across the water, some taking a running jump. ... We've seen some impressive jumps but no calamities so far. A lot of people are taking a long time, and we're watching them. I know how Bill Oddie feels now."
Someone has now put a wet floor sign in the middle of the puddle.
It didn't deter this guy.
Also there are now 22,000 people watching.
WE HAVE A LILO.
We have not been able to independently verify the facts of the matter, but it might be this man.
We have a surfboard.
Just a giant crowd there now.
It's quiet again now.
Behind the scenes...
Well done everyone.
