    Man Attempts World Record By Listening To 'We Built This City' 324 Times in 24 Hours

    http://www.nypost.com/seven/10112006...y_pagesix_.htm

    October 11, 2006 -- TALK about torture. Blender magazine editors chose Starship's 1985 hit "We Built This City" as the worst song of all time. Now they've assigned contributor Russ Heller to set a world record for repeatedly listening to the worst song ever. He'll sit in a plexiglass booth at the Best Buy in NoHo starting Friday at 8 a.m. and grit his teeth as "We Built This City" is played at least 324 times over a grueling 24 hours.

    Poor Fucker, knee deep in the hoopla, indeed.

    man...I wouldn't want to be that guy. That's considered inhumane torture in some countries.

    Ouch.

    I mean, I love cheesy 80s music. I love it. But even I can't tolerate this more often than once every five years or so. Oy.

    There are cutters.

    Self-inflicting piercers.

    Bulemics and anorexics.

    And then there's this guy.

    Isn't there always supposed to be an authorized rep. from Guinness there to verify that a record has been set. Wouldn't that person, by default, also be setting the record? Of course, there could be a couple of reps who take shifts, I suppose. And is this Best Buy open 24 hours?!? So lame, yet so many questions...

    Well, that's one way to get your 15 minutes.
