QWOP Videos Hits 250,000 Views Since Saturday

So you might have seen this term — QWOP — also known as the most difficult game ever created — is a simple flash game wherein the user manipulates a track and field runners thighs and calfs using the Q,W,O, and P keys on the keyboard.

Simple enough. But very frustrating. YouTube videomaker Hank Green explains below:

“While search interest in QWOP definitely hit its peak back in late 2010, the trend has continued to demonstrate a strong following, and just today, one of the most-viewed videos in the United States was this clip, of a man dressed up as everyone’s favorite/least-favorite runner at this summer’s Comic-Con. It’s been seen over 250,000 times since Saturday,” reports YouTube Trends.

“The game first became a part of online video pop-culture back in December, when this video of a monotone (third embed below), frustrated gamer first became popular. It’s since been viewed over 4 million times (Warning: Adult Language.) There are actually thousands of “QWOP” videos on YouTube, most of which were posted in the past 8 months since that was posted. And there are over 1,000 tagged “QWOP fail.” Many of the most popular ones contain varying levels of (profane) frustration.
