Like everyone else, I discovered ChatRoulette a few months ago and was simultaneously enthralled and disgusted at the same time. Either way, my first ChatRoulette experience quickly turned into three of us addicted to it on a Saturday night for about two hours. I closed my computer and never felt more empty inside. However, I still think it might be one of the most clever things I’ve seen on the internet in a long time. If only they could figure out how to get rid of all those penises…
After making myself stupider that night, I thought I had a cool idea: “Hey guys, let’s throw a huge party somewhere and project ChatRoulette onto the walls.” I thought it would be this super heady experience when the innocent (pathetic) lonely guy sitting on his couch realized he was being broadcast to a room of a thousand people. That jackass Ben Folds from Ben Folds Five beat me to it. Good! I probably wouldn’t have done it anyway.
Here’s the awesome video of Ben Fold’s ChatRoulette set in Charlotte, North Carolina.
