#DrummondPuddleWatch is a Strangely Fantastic Periscope Live Stream

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Welcome to 2016. Thousands of people are currently sat in front of their computer screens, watching and discussing a Periscope live stream of other people trying to cross a big puddle in Newcastle. At the time of writing, over 19,000 are hooked. Join the club. It's far more entertaining than Celebrity Big Brother.

Marketing agency Drummond Central, which set the stream up, told TechRadar: "We were watching the puddle ourselves and laughing at all the people trying to get around it. Then someone came up with the idea of putting it on Periscope, something we've been playing around with recently." I'll admit, this is the longest I've ever spent using Twitter's live streaming service. Still, it's nothing on the gem below. [TechRadar]
