    "What would you do if you had four hours to live?"

    Drugs. Lots and lots of drugs. Then maybe go running around the city shooting any doomsdayers and religious fanatics that are corrupting everyone`s last moments on Earth with doubt and anxiety. Yeah, that`s what I`d do.

    I really liked this video. I hate the fact that in every doomsday scenario everyone is running around trying to tie up loose ends or do something they`ve been too afraid to do. In this one it shows what you`re really supposed to do, just enjoy yourself in the little things.

    One of my favorite scenes from the Simpons, somebody told Homer to live like today was his last day...then they cut to a shot where he was sitting on a street curb, surrounded by empty beer bottles, balling his eyes out and saying "I`m not ready to die!"

    Hilarious!

    I know if I had 4 hours to live I`d be damn torn up.

    terribad acting, awesome in just about every other way.
    "This is the time, man! To go out in style! I`m going to eat cool ranch doritos with chocolate milk and watch The Never Ending Story."
    I laughed at this.
    "Wait, I don`t want to die alone. Do you want to spend the rest of your life with me?"
    I got teary at this.

    I was kind of expecting the news to tell them at the end that they got it wrong again and they would all live.

    I have a 2 year old little girl. Her Mom and I would spend that four hours making her the happiest kid in the world! Anything she wanted at all! Horsey rides, play chase, hug her, tickle her, chocolate, take her to a pet store and let her play with puppies. Anything, anything. What`s important to you, right? She is to me.

    hmmm... 4 hours to live. I would steal a large quantity of guinness and dump it all into a bath tub and bathe in it while making phone calls to everyone i care about to say goodbye. Once that is done I would try and get laid. Gotta get laid before I die. Rest of the time ill just be eating all amounts of junk food playing video games. Then if I`m drunk enough I just may pass out and that would be nifty.

    Not especially well done, to be honest, though this line made up for some of it:

    "This is the time, man! To go out in style! I`m going to eat cool ranch doritos with chocolate milk and watch The Never Ending Story."

    I don`t think there`s anything I`d desperately want to do. Maybe get my hands on a taxi and offer free rides to kill the time.
    Gotta do something.

    Hey, I`m a socially inept retard and you`re a lonely girl with low self esteem, how about we spend the next 4 hours of our life acting out (poorly) uninteresting aspects of a long-term relationship and attempt (but fail) to make it seem somehow poignant.

    @Crucible So when everyone else is repenting, you`ll be fcking up someone else`s last 4 hours? That`s horrible that you could even think about deliberately denying someone`s chance to face their final destination with live eyes, and for such a selfish reason at that. I hope you aren`t serious.

    I don`t see how people like this so much. Even without the bad acting, the dialogue is shoddy, the apparently poignant moments detailing the long-term relationship crammed into a short timespan are cliché and cringe-worthy. I`m not one of those people who hates everything and I don`t hate this, it`s a good effort....5 out of 10.
