Milestones

  • A (clearly calculated) Fangamer drop resulted in a total of $123,456.78. Serge was overcome.
  • At 20:30 on Wednesday November 14 (130:30 into the run), we reached Five. Million. Dollars. Lifetime.
  • In a win for #TeamOrderedChaos, #TeamChaoticOrder, or perhaps #TeamEverybody, a total of $666,666 on the nose was achieved. [23]
  • About the only records not broken this year were those for most consecutive points and least crashes, both set in Desert Bus 3, and the record for bus stops, set last year.

Notable Events and Memes

  • Before the run started, James said he'd buy everybody ice cream if $15,000 was raised before start time. This was done, easily breaking the previous pre-run record; the ice-cream party was scheduled for the Thursday night of the run.
  • The Device was not used this year, as a result of last year's malfunctions.
  • This year, the Bone Zone was replaced by Kevin's Korner.
  • "Kevin" was a robot camera, used both for closeups and zoom/pan shots around the room.
  • Every prize came with a Desert Bus for Hope "1 DBloon" challenge coin. (One was also given to each of the crafters.)
  • There were pronoun pins optionally worn by people on set: purple for he/him, yellow for she/her, blue for they/them.
  • At 5 minutes past each hour, the overlay presented currency conversions for the total amount raised into pounds, Canadian dollars, Australian dollars, and euros.
  • Congratulations! played often, with various degrees of sincerity. (Wark Wark became an associated meme in chat.) This became the basis for the stinger.
  • Any donation amount containing the digits "69" caused the overlay to change from "LATEST DONATION" to "NIIIIICE DONATION."
  • The random dance party button was made by Ian, and involved a longer process than ever before: it needed to be armed before use...and the number of buttons that need to be pressed simultaneously grew by the day.
  • Ashley was adamant about people getting donor accounts; in response, there was much riffing on "No Donor Account" in people's account names toward the end of her driver shift.
  • The rule against open containers of liquid on the set was suspended for games of Coffee Pong between Serge and James, with escalating ice-cream-related stakes. James won all three matches; accordingly, Serge paid for the Thursday-night ice cream, but James got the credit for it.
  • #TeamOrder and #TeamChaos continued their rivalry; the latter was now commonly pronounced "Chowse." Because that's more chaotic.
  • As the total reached exact increments of $5,000, the UI font turned to Wingdings.
