With The Eras Tour going on, Taylor Swift’s fans are trying left and right to get tickets for the show. And, in all the craziness, one of her fans, Davis Perrigo, thought of a brilliant idea to attend the show when he was unable to secure the tickets. He revealed how he became a stadium security guard to watch the concert. Davis went viral when he was spotted on the front stage of the Nissan Stadium in Nashville while he was singing along to the songs.
The Origin of the Idea
He explained how he got upset when he couldn’t get the concert tickets. That’s when he thought of his father, who used to work as a security guard. And it hit him that it would probably be a great idea to apply for the security guard’s post at the stadium. Similar to Perrigo, many fans got frustrated and sad when they couldn’t secure the Eras Tour tickets, which soon resulted in some backlash from them. Even Taylor Swift herself issued a statement on Instagram, acknowledging how she’s protective of her fans, and that she doesn’t want them to get bullied whether or not they got the tickets for the show.
Perrigo, an accountant, said that the duties were very minimal and he only needed to only keep people in check. Being a die-hard Taylor Swift fan, he went with the flow and couldn’t hold his excitement. And, he apparently got berated on the job and asked to take it down a notch. He also shared that he couldn’t document the show because of the no-phones and no-photography policies. However, many Swifties recorded him singing and dancing to Taylor Swift’s hit tunes. And, after so many videos of him enjoying the show, he became quite a sensation on the internet.
There are some crafty souls in the world who can manipulate technology in the most incredible ways. Several people seem to have made it their mission in life to play the video game ‘Doom’ on as many devices as possible. Their efforts have had some surprising successes, but none more so than the latest attempt to get the game running on a pregnancy test.
A New Way Of Playing
Typically, the only reason you need to buy a pregnancy test is if you think you might be expecting. That wasn’t why programmer Foone scored himself one, though. He was far more interested in seeing if he could adapt the stick to play a popular video game. We can’t imagine that many people have ever had the desire to do this before. After all, a pregnancy test doesn’t exactly offer the same kind of 4k experience you can get on TVs and computers. However, Foone was determined, and this was a challenge he wanted to meet.
A Successful Experiment
As the programmer revealed to his social media followers in early September, his efforts were a success. After showcasing a video of the game running on a pregnancy test, he then provided proof of him playing on the device. It wasn’t exactly the most compelling gaming experience given the stick only has a “128×32 pixel monochrome display.” Still, the quality wasn’t what was important. The simple fact that he’d managed to run Doom on the pregnancy test was what truly mattered.
Some Minor Tweaks
Although Foone’s programming experiment was successful, he technically had to make some adjustments to the pregnancy test for it to work. The CPU and LCD both needed to be changed because the former couldn’t be reprogrammed, and the latter only showed four things. Still, what he achieved was nonetheless remarkable.
After this technological breakthrough, we have to wonder what unusual device someone will play Doom on next.
