4 minutes fast: the letter ‘w’

While we were in Louisville I caught wind of a funny idea for a youtube game.

Here’s the story.

Ben Dockery (director of Alumni Relations at Southern Seminary, if you are interested) received a text message from Joe Garner (director of awesome music by he, himself, and his band) to the following effect:

Have you ever repeated the letter “W” as fast as you can for 4 minutes?

So Ben gave it a shot and said that it was pretty wild – you ended up saying really ridiculous stuff and laughing hysterically.

Sounded like fun to me, so I decided to give it a shot, video the results, and post it on the blog:

Here’s my project for you:

Give it a shot, take the “4 minutes fast” challenge.  If you want, start with the classic “Letter W” like I did, or branch out and try something different.

Be sure to video yourself so you can see how ridiculous you look – and don’t be shy, post it on youtube.

Don’t forget to post a link in the comments below if you take the challenge.

I am already thinking of other things that I could try to repeat 4 minutes fast, what about you?

(p.s. – that’s Beth and my buddy Matt Elia laughing in the background)

    Oh yeah, very nice!

    It is probably a good thing that you included the background to this experiment in the introduction to your video, as well as in the blog. Otherwise someone finding it on YouTube, and dropping into the middle of it might have thought they were seeing 1 Cor 14 in action, but would have been left disappointed that your cohorts and co-producers, did not do some interpretation.

    Because you are a pastor and for reasons that will be obvious if you do the experiment off-camera, a letter I recommend you NOT video yourself saying is “X”.
