It doesn't require a lot of effort to become an internet sensation overnight. In fact, all you have to do is nothing. That's exactly what an Indonesian man did and he is now a Youtube superstar.
Muhammad Didit, earlier this month, posted a 2-hour-long clip of himself sitting on a couch and doing nothing but staring into the camera. The video has since received nearly 1.5 million views and has inspired countless memes on Indonesian social media. In fact, ever since Didit’s video went viral, other would-be internet celebrities have been busy imitating him, hoping to also copy his success. You can now find YouTube videos of people doing nothing for four, five, and even eight hours at a time.
The 21-year-old said that he was inspired to record the video by requests from some of his viewers to post a positive, educational video for a change. Two hours of nothing was all he could come up with and it's paid off. He spends most of his time no doing interviews about his video.
