    - Welcome to the first episode of a brand new show on FBE
    that is based on the trend of people uploading various videos
    on endless loops. - Oh, god.
    - (FBE) The new show is called "How Long Can You Watch?"
    - (laughs) Are you kidding?!
    - So, am I watching something for as long as I can?
    - (FBE) So, instead of only playing the 10-hour long version
    of one of these, we're gonna have it just go on forever
    and see which one of you can last the longest.
    - Ooh. So, the competition piece makes it a little bit different.
    - (FBE) How do you think this is going to go?
    - I have no patience. - I'm not leaving here.
    You're gonna be like, "When will she leave?
    When will she stop?" Never.
    - I expect this entire show to be a lot of commitment,
    and that's my specialty is committing to really stupid jokes,
    so I'm gonna be here the entire time.
    - (FBE) We are also taking away your phone.
    - Oh! - (FBE) So you have no distractions.
    - Nothing to-- okay. Bye, phone.
    - I just like feeling it. Do you want my keys, too?
    Just take everything from me.
    - (FBE) And we are not going to be in the room.
    - Oh, great. - (FBE) So, take your final looks
    around the room, because we will be stepping out
    in a moment, and as soon as the video starts,
    the challenge is on, and we'll record the time.
    - Just admiring you guys before you leave.
    - I just wanna take one last look at fellow humans right now.
    Oh, god! What the-- what was that?!
    What are you guys doing?!
    - Goodbye. Oh, no! (laughs) I don't wanna be alone!

    - Oh my god!! I did it!! Oh my god!! I did it!!
    - WOOO! (headphones clatter)
    Oh my god! I'm never coming back here.
    - I literally thought to myself, "I could do maybe one more round
    before I lose my mind and kill somebody."
    - (FBE) So, you lost at 12 minutes and therefore lost.
    So, you lasted 28 minutes and therefore lost.
    - Ah, yeah.
    - (FBE) The full video was 90 minutes long.
    - Oh, really?! I could've done that easy!
    - (FBE) So, you lasted 90 minutes. That video was about 90 minutes,
    an hour and a half. - Are you serious? (laughs)
    - (FBE) Yeah. - Holy cow.
    - Oh my... god! What is wrong with me? (laughs)
    - That was an hour and a half? It felt like I was here FOREVER.
    - I wasn't gonna leave. If this was a 12-hour challenge,
    I would've stayed in this room, and I don't like that fact!
    - (FBE) So, the idea of uploading something
    usually for 10 hours or more on loop has been a viral trend
    for a while now... - Yeah.
    - (FBE) ...with some users commenting on how long they themselves lasted.
    Why do you think this is a thing that people enjoy to do?
    - Well, it's kind of testing your willpower.
    - There's this innate necessity to wanna test the boundaries
    of human limitations and this is the most stupid form of that possible.
    - It's a challenge you know you can win
    if you just sit down and do it.
    You know what would be a really good one?
    ♪ Never gonna give you up ♪ Just on repeat.
    That would be such a solid troll
    and then just an hour and a half of that. Imagine?
    I'd love it.
