This is a video of 22 hipsters climbing into a cardboard bed. Oh, Internet, what can’t you do?
Karton, an Australian cardboard furniture retailer--yes, there’s an entire company doing this stuff--wanted to prove how strong its queen-sized cardboard bed is, so they invited a stream of photogenically mussed twentysomethings to hop on.
The bed has a system of folded paper panels, which connect to form an improbably sturdy cardboard base. Originally, Karton claimed that the bed could hold up to 1 ton, or 10 people. Turns out it can support nearly 2 tons--a whopping 22 people.
So now we are supposed to marvel at the fact that a bed made out of paper won’t crash to the ground every time you try to have a 22-person orgy. We are more impressed by the fact that 22 hipsters were thrown together in one room and no hurdy-gurdy music broke out.
