It's 10:35 am the day after, and the question I think everyone wants to know the answer to is; are you awake yet Danny?

Watching Danny die over and over again playing SUPER MARIO BROS 3!! was simply the funniest shit I've seen here on GS. "Is this known as a difficult game? It just seems unfair?" HAHAHA Oh man, hilarious!.

I got maybe 2 to 4 hours of sleep cause I was watching since the beginning.

 

Can anyone point out the timestamp of the part where Danny started singing? I remember he was all by himself I think playing Call of Duty and was repeating "For the children"

 @dannyodwyer Yeah you owned us pretty hard right there.I quite enjoyed our short rocket launcher duels though.

 @ravenkiller Duration isn't everything. Why would anyone want to watch you item farm for 53 hours? This was like Gamespot's Community Service stream, but hosted from Danny's living room for 24 hours. Danny and his friends kept things entertaining and continuously chatted with all the viewers. It was great fun and I find myself wanting to watch the bits I missed even when they were playing games I didn't like or care about.

 @JOLIVERW I can confirm that Danny is awake and busy working on EFMS. Or at least he's sent his replicant in...

Found it. 14:31:40 into Part 1 if you want to hear Danny singing "Die for the children"

 @WCK619 Watch for the list of games and then just count the hours since he did it during CoD

 @WCK619  @ravenkiller 

Who would play a game for 53 hours straight for no reason?That is really what I am wondering. 

WCK619

If you just keep watching from that point, he tends to keep singing a line or 2 of it every once in a while.

 @LightEffect Well I know he started playing CoD at 13:48 into part 1, but I want to know specifically the timestamp of when he was singing.

I'm highly compelled to go through the entire Call of Duty hour and make a compilation of every time Danny sang for the children.

 @WCK619 haha, oh god. I was so worried about loosing traffic on the stream when Alex went to bed. I felt like I needed to fill all the dead air, and since I couldn't play and read the chat at the same time, I thought singing was all I could do.
