A Clacton man who planned to break the internet with a viral You Tube video of himself plunging into a bathtub filled with baked beans has been left shaken and disillusioned following a lacklustre response from internet users.

“I thought it was a cracking idea,” said Terry Glanville, 36. “I really thought it would go viral and get me a sponsorship deal to do bonkers things on You Tube but it’s only had about 23 views so far. It seems only my family are interested in my crazy antics. Obviously I got it wrong so I’m going to have a rethink. It’s either that or I’ll have to get off my arse and get a proper job.”

Industry experts appeared to agree that taking a bath in baked beans isn’t likely to break the internet because it’s so last century.

“Bathing in baked beans is no big deal,” Professor Ken Mist of Titchfield University said today. “It’s quite tame really. I mean, only last week there was a bloke who had a bath in hot chilli sauce, a bloke riding a bike off a cliff, some woman getting her arm ripped off by a bear and even a bloke in a wing suit who crashed and died in real time on Facebook.Taking a bath in baked beans is quite tame really – unless the beans are piping hot, or set on fire or something.”

“How about if I pour a bucket of freezing cold water over my head?” Mr Glanville suggested.

“We’ll be in touch…” said Professor Mist, shaking his head.

More as we get it.
