GTA IV world record attempt tonight, next door to BBtv

GTA IV record attempt, is a yet-to-be-launched internet video show produced right next door to where we make Boing Boing tv, at the studios of internet video firm DECA. The Bush League people are pretty crazy, and they're fun neighbors to have.

Anyway, tonight at at 5pm LA time, they -- specifically, this one guy on the show named Jim -- will attempt to break a gaming world record by playing the new edition of Grand Theft Auto (GTA IV) for over 25 consecutive hours. That's a lot of whores and cars! I understand they've even hired a real-life nurse to stand by in case the guy like, dies or whatever.

A live-cast video feed (and twitter updates) will be at I hear a bunch of friends from G4 TV will be in the house. Allison Kingsley from Bush League bought a ton of flowers to counteract the anticipated olfactory menace of eau de wargamer (I am so not kidding).

There's a teaser about their show on the site now, and the live feed will start promptly at 5pm. Bush League is an entertainment site aimed mostly at dudes that launches next week, on May 8th.

GTA IV record attempt,


  1. Okay, with the overhype surrounding this game—and more people not caring than Rockstar flacks would actually admit—why is a quality blog like Boing Boing actually adding to the Rockstar promotion machine?

  2. Jack, it’s because I think these guys are fucking hilarious and if they played fucking parcheesi for 25 hours they would make it worth watching. I’ve watched them develop their show, and I think it’s fantastic. It’s not so much about GTA as it is about the bushleague guys.

  3. only 25 consecutive hours of gaming???

    a korean could do that in his sleep (and would).

  4. Because bitching about bloggers’ topic choices is so cutting edge, not to mention useful.

    It’s been said, but acting opposite the flock can be just as sheep-like as following it.

  5. Yeah, every year at least one Korean guy dies playing Lineage II for 3+ days without stopping.

  6. Antinous, you know about the crazy fan thing, too? Thank god! No one ever seems to believe me.

    My wife (Japanese) also is deathly afraid of fans. Drives me nuts.

  7. I played san andreas for around 24 hours straight when I first got it…guess I should have called Guinness before hand

  8. They’re keeping points on how many prostitutes he goes to (or kills). This is perhaps the most boring and shitty post I’ve read on here. As a female reader, thanks Boingboing!

  9. Hey #21, I just want you to know that I’m taking this steak knife here and ramming it into my left carotid. Because of you. Yes, it’s my hand that guides the knife, but in many ways, it’s also your tardocity.
