Desert Bus is a mini game that was created for "Penn & Teller's Smoke and Mirrors" an unreleased console game collection from the 90s. It was created with the help of sitcom writer Eddie Gordetsky (Dharma & Greg, Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Fresh Prince Of Bel Air).

The concept of desert bus is that you drive a bus from Arizona to Las Vegas. It takes 8 hours to drive the bus one round and score 1 point, there are no interesting graphics, and you constantly have to steer (so theres no cheating). It is a game made purely to troll an unsuspecting player.

A few years ago the files for P&T's S&M game were leaked.

The reason I'm posting this is because a bunch of guys have decided to continually play this game for the Child's Play charity.

Live feed of the game itself:

Looks like they've scored 6 points in 2 days, and raised $200k.

If people stop donating they will stop playing.

Insane. And funny.

Incredible (in a good way) that people fund charity drives for things so amusingly stupid. Pun not intended.
