    Ever wanted giant mountains on the internet to yell out your tweet? Today’s your lucky day!

    This Chrome Experiment is two giant mountains, the “Mountains of Mouthness“, that will do exactly that in a deep, booming voice for all the internet to see. I just spent the last hour laughing at these mountains reading the most ridiculous things.

    All you have to do to get the Mountains of Mouthness to read your message is either send a tweet on the #mouthness hashtag or to @momouthness. If you use your phone to visit the site, you’ll see it from a different interactive perspective.

    The experiment is built using WebGL and HTML5 along with a tool called GooCreate which helps build 3D animations.

    What ridiculous message did you get the mountains to shout? Let us know in the comments!
