Some of you could know Ross ‘RubberNinja’ O’Donovan for his time on ‘let’s play’ internet sequence Game Grumps, however he caught everybody’s consideration in a giant method final 12 months when he ate 999 eggs in Final Fantasy XIV – folks got here, folks cheered, and folks walked away very amused. Now, although, he’s taking it a step additional by consuming a whole stock of eggs on stream, which is greater than 138,000 if you wish to put a quantity on it.

Of course, it’s not fairly so simple as that, as O’Donovan has pledged to maintain streaming until he pulls off the feat. That might sound fairly simple, however there are heaps of guidelines in place that’ll draw it out. For each 1,000 subscriptions he will get on Twitch, O’Donovan will add 999 eggs again to the whole.

O’Donovan has additionally vowed solely to eat meals with eggs whereas this is occurring, and he’s even sleeping on stream, too, solely taking breaks to bathe. Oh, and if he hits 20,000 subs, he’ll shave his head to “[become] an egg”. I tuned into his stream whereas penning this up, and positive sufficient, he’s asleep. There’s additionally an overlay of his character consuming eggs whereas a drained voice repeats the phrase “egg” repeatedly. Egg.

How lengthy this goes on for is anybody’s guess. Earlier this 12 months, one content material creator caught the eye of the broader media by streaming for 31 days as his subathon merely wouldn’t finish until, nicely, he put a stop to it. 31 days is a very long time, you understand.

Final Fantasy XIV is at the moment having fun with a surge in recognition, with house on the EU and NA servers turning into scarcer. It’s prompted Square Enix to introduce a 30-minute logout timer to deal with server congestion with plans for server upgrades and more data centres within the works. I suppose it’s an excellent time to host an egg-eating stream, then, as you won’t be wanting a crowd.
