Man 'Enduring' Week Of Nickelback For A Cause
. (Classic Rock) A man from the US is listening to Nickelback constantly for a week to raise cash for charity. Jesse Carey started the marathon session on Monday and will stop this coming Sunday - and he says he's received messages of support from across the world for his "ultimate test of human endurance."
He tells the Relevant podcast: "I want to lift the confidence of what a human being is capable of. It's the feeling I get after I watch a David Blaine special, and he's been locked in a block of ice upside down for reasons that were never made clear. All you need to know is that he did it.
"People have been kind enough to leave messages of encouragement. Somebody even said there's a darkness to the music and I'll have to do some sort of hot yoga cleanse after this - people are concerned for me spiritually, emotionally and even physically.
"No one knows what the brain will do when subjected to this type of Nickelback." The serious side to Nickelbackathon is Carey's drive to generate funds for the charity Water, which aims to build wells and give people across the world access to safe, clean water. Read more here.
