30 Days to Death - Suicide 2.0?

I am assuming that this is a wind up of some sort. The guy is doing videos and a blog journal for thrity days before he commits suicide. Currently he is on Day 16 and reading the first entry he will be emailing the link to his family and friends right before he does the deed.

Presumably, if this is real, then his family and friends might actually find out about it before he does it.

Update II: Having watched a bit more I have a straneg feeling that this might be some sort of bizarre viral attempt. Can't be sure though and I guess after 30 days no one will know anyway if it is for real. Atleast not initially.

That doesn't look like a joke to me. He seems to be in a pretty bad state if you read the entries.

Not sure what anyone can do about it though.

Chris Morris already did this with his "suicide journalist" skit on Jam. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o04BRVSy_5c

Yes re: Chris Morris however that was a joke, am not sure whether this is or not.

That Chris Morris sketch is amazing. The guy's a comic legend. As for the guy on the internet... can I be the first to say I don't care what he does?

Request granted.

It might sound like a cliche, but it is a pretty obvious cry for help.

His account has now been 'suspended'. Which strikes me as being a rather unfortunate phrase to use under the circumstances.
