This Guy Raised $18K for Charity Just By Listening to Nickelback

In a “real or Onion” story that’s almost too good to be true, a man has volunteered to listen to Nickelback for seven straight days to raise money for Charity: Water.

Jesse Carey announced on a podcast that he would listen to a solid 168 hours of Nickelback’s music, from Feb 16-22, and in return asked that the bemused donate to Charity: Water. His goal was to raise $10,000 and build a well.

As of today (Feb. 17), he has surpassed that goal with a total of $18,318.

In an FAQ about why he is doing this, Carey elaborates on why he’s selected Nickelback as his music of choice.
