‘Harnessing the interactivity behind preroll ads, this projects repositions the YouTube interface as a window into a tangible alternative reality. From a god-like perspective, viewers find themselves looking down upon an absurd scenario, confronted with the responsibility of rescuing our seemingly trapped protagonist from an existential crisis. As the sole sentient character within each of these hopeless and dinner-less scenarios, the main character pleads directly to the viewer, possibly forever - until you take action to interact and alter the situation.'
