5 OF THE MOST RIDICULOUS MARS ONE APPLICATION VIDEOS
The applicant videos diverge from deadpan, serious and monotone to the downright kooky. The latter make for some hilarious watching. Here are five of the funniest:
5. Christopher (28) from the US decided the best way to get a place on board was to show off his sense of humor… by letting his dog lick his face. It’s a bit confusing as we’re not really sure whether it’s the dog or Christopher who needs a one-way trip to Mars.
4. Julian (24) from Argentina is “already practicing” being in space and went all out with what resembles the inside of a homemade spaceship and a matching outfit.
3. Nicole (27) from the US is convinced that she is the best candidate because she likes arguments and eating in front of the camera. She also has a parakeet that sits on her shoulder, and demonstrates a unique ability to not talk about anything particularly relevant.
2. John (31) from the US sees great opportunities for the porn industry in the Mars One program: space sex. He insightfully points out that it is a “totally untapped market”. Indeed, along with his desire to be published in the Guinness Book of World Records as the “fattest guy on Mars” (not sure if “World” includes other planets…), we think he could be the perfect person to spice up Mars One’s reality TV show.
1. Efe (31) from Turkey thinks that going to Mars will be “a very cost-effective solution” to his unemployment. In his own words, “If the situation comes to … needing to eat a fallen comrade, then I’m your guy!” Thank goodness for that.
