2. As you may have guessed, it was a harrowing experience. Full of ups, downs, and tons of drama. Here’s what was going through our heads when it all went down.
4. We were told the breaking point would be 475 rubber bands. We were convinced we were being duped and she would explode at any moment.
5. But then, she held on strong. We were amazed and humbled by Giselle’s strength.
6. More people started piling into our canteen as the video (unbeknownst to us at the time) was going super viral.
LIKE WE WERE TRENDING ABOVE BRUCE?! EXCUSE ME?
8. With each rubber band, our anticipation grew. WE WERE SWEATING. LIKE REALLY SWEATING.
9. One-fourth of the way in, Giselle was started to change shape! But she was still her strong, independent self. Truly amazing.
10. BLISTERS WERE FORMED, BLOOD WAS SHED, TEARS WERE CULMINATING.
11. Her juices were starting to pour out. It was like she was weeping.
12. At this point, we were getting attached. We had come so far together, you know?
13. At band 642, we could see her splitting, but we had to keep going. We had to move around to shake off the nerves.
14. SO MANY FALSE ALARMS KEPT HAPPENING. The rubberbands kept snapping on us like Giselle’s final revenge.
15. THEN SHE EXPLODED. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL, SAD, AND GLORIOUS AT THE SAME TIME.
16. Oh, and in case there was any doubt, SHE WAS DELICIOUS.
18. All in all, it was a roller coaster of emotions, bringing us all together.
P.S. That handsome gentleman next to us is the mastermind behind it all: Mr. Ed Souaid.
19. We love you, Giselle. You’ve taught us so much.
