British man on verge of drowning in Skittles


Skittles U.K. is currently eight hours into a 24-hour live-streaming Facebook stunt in which it is dumping loads of the candy on a man in a tank—adding more every 15 minutes, based on the number of new Facebook fans it gets. The man, David Phoenix, appears to be screwed, given that the Skittles are almost up to his neck already. He has already been subjected to 1,128,500 falling Skittles, with lots more on the way. Skittles seems to be gaining plenty of new fans, but could have done a lot better by hiring David Blaine—since everyone knows the British just love to screw with David Blaine.
