ICE_POSEIDON’s Touch the Car Competition Ends After 19 Hours via Unusual Decision by Final Contestant

Streamer ICE_POSEIDON set up a strange ‘Touch the Car’ competition, where contestants would stand with their hand on a car, and the last person touching it would win the car itself.

After a gruelling 19 hours, all of which were capture on live stream, the competition came to an end – after one of the two final contestants simply gave up.


ICE_POSEIDON is known for these kind of strange contests and social experiments, all of which he live streams to a dedicated audience.

One of his most infamous examples is when he locked a group of people in a closet for three days, and having his viewers donate to play loud, torturous noises for the duration.


The final few hours of the Touch the Car competition saw the final three competitors still standing, but went down to two because one accidentally took his hand off the hood of the car, after ICE sprayed some kind of smelly substance in their faces.

Another few hours passed before finally, one contestant seemed to realize that – after 19 hours of standing – he no longer wanted the car that much, and felt his opponent deserved it.

His reasoning was two-fold, one he felt like using an Uber was actually in a way preferable to having the car, because he got to meet people and talk to people.


“I enjoyed this experience, it didn’t feel like a waste of time to me, and that I really don’t need this car. It feels a lot more meaningful to me, meeting people, than winning a car.”

So eventually he does in fact take his hand off the car, giving it to the last standing contestant, ‘Alfredo’. Another successful ICE_POSEIDON experiment then, albeit another very strange one.


Joe Rogan finally changes JRE podcast lighting after fans complain

Popular stand-up comedian Joe Rogan has finally revealed changes to the lighting of his new podcast studio after fans decided they hated it, following his move to Texas.

After moving his entire podcast studio near his new Texas home in early September, Joe Rogan’s followers were quick to criticize him over the “tacky” updates made to the background of his setup.


While most of his fans are used to seeing him in front of the classic red-brick wall with an American flag during his long-form conversations, his latest move saw the addition of some bizarre red lighting patterns instead.

JRE fans criticized Rogan’s studio for its “tacky” red lights in previous episodes.

The UFC commentator’s first few episodes in the new studio were subject to a lot of criticism and many fans immediately called for adjustments to be made to the new camera angles and lighting that were being used.


However, after initially addressing the hate and revealing that they had put the room together on short notice, it seems as if he has taken the feedback on board in his recent episodes, toning down the harsh red lighting that was present in the background of the show. The podcast host has now replaced the bright red light with a blue hue instead.

Since the release of his podcast with fellow comedian Colin Quinn on October 8, fans have noticed a massive improvement in the lighting and have been quite positive about the production changes that Rogan and JRE producer Jamie Vernon have made.

“Lighting is so much better, doesn’t look like you’re in front of a KFC sign” one viewer commented, while other JRE fans echoed similar compliments after the latest changes.


The majority of his viewers claimed that the quality of the episode was “significantly better” but that it could still do with some minor adjustments to bring it up to the usual standard of the popular podcast.

As Rogan has previously explained that his current studio was put together on short notice, it is quite possible that he has even more changes in store over the next few months but we’ll just have to wait and see if any further adjustments are made.
