Some people climb mountains, others sail oceans, but one man has embarked on the ultimate test of human endurance. Jesse Carey is listening to Nickelback nonstop for an entire week. He may sound foolish, even crazy, but this man is actually a hero.
Carey’s week-long marathon of the much-mocked Canadian rock band is actually a bid to raise money for charity. He set his sights at raising $10,000 for Charity: Water, and so far his online campaign has reached nearly $23,000!
Obviously, listening to the group on loop while “sleeping, showering, working and fathering his son” hasn’t been a walk in the park. “I’m willing to put my personal health at risk for the challenge,” he says in his campaign video. “Obviously, exposure to such a large quantity of Nickelback is very dangerous. [Doctors] have said that such an endeavor could result in irreversible damage to my ears, brain, kidney and soul.”
His harrowing adventure will continue until Monday the 23rd, so be sure to donate!
