#DrummondPuddleWatch: 19,000 people in the UK watched a live stream of a puddle

If ever there was a reason to stop what you’re doing and become consumed by Periscope, this is it. Over 19,000 people tuned into a stream of British people trying their luck at avoiding a giant puddle in Newcastle, England today.

Yep, you read that correctly. Almost 20,000 people have been captivated by #DrummondPuddleWatch.

Even Twitter’s co-founder Jack Dorsey has enjoyed the lols.

There have been some novel attempts to get around the awkwardly placed puddle, and then there was this guy.

Who’d have thought live streaming apps could bring us all so much closer to nature?

Update (17:45 GMT):

The live stream has ended, but if you missed out, you can catch up on the fun here.
