A stranger on the internet is trying to become a crowd-funded millionaire.
Let us stop you right there.
Surely whoever decided to do this is having a bit of a laugh?
But to repeat – someone you've never met is asking for the entirety of the internet to come together in a 'first-of-its-kind' social experiment, and raise a million dollars for them. Head over to the slick but slightly cringeworthy wemadeamillionaire.com for more info and to watch their explanation video.
Basically, once (if) the crowd-funding effort reaches a million dollars, the money'll be given to someone who, from the sounds of it, has already been selected. They'll then spend the money however they like, but kindly document themselves flashing the cash in monthly vlogs on YouTube. Which is quite nice of them, but we're not sure the world needs another Rich Kid Of Snapchat.
The total already stands at almost $12,000. If you do donate (in nominations of $1.29, $4.99 or $9.99) you get your photo on the website wall and a custom message.
What do you reckon – is this the ultimate example of internet kindness or someone cleverly abusing the term 'social experiment'?
