I Mailed Myself in a Box *UK to USA* (HUMAN MAIL CHALLENGE PART 3 – BY AIR)

October 12, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs

(upbeat instrumental music) – I’m gonna mail myself again. I know I said I wasn’t
gonna do it ever again but I’m gonna do it. It’s like it’s a trilogy. The first time, I mailed myself by land. The second time, by sea. I’ve just gotta do a Part Three by air. I’m just gonna get
straight into this thing. I’m gonna go make the box and everything but first, I can’t decide
where I want to mail myself to. I bought a map. I’m just gonna throw a dart on the map. Wherever it lands that’s
where we’re going. I just opened this thing up. I’ve (laughs) I accidentally ordered a kids map. (laughs) I’m gonna go duct tape
this to a piece of wood and then we’ll see where we’re going. Benny got a scarf. I’m gonna use this as a blindfold so I can’t see. And then just drop the thing. – [Woman] Turn around a bit. Yeah, that’s it. Around, turn around. (laughs) Alright. Yeah, whatever. Just, yeah. – Say yeah. – [Woman] Yeah. – Okay, yeah. Three, two, one. (dart drops to floor) Where is this? – [Woman] Oh, it landed in the sea. – Where about? Wait, right in the middle of, ahh. It’s closest to LA, I guess. LA, here we come. (laughs) Let’s go meet this crate. Let’s go meet the crate. So here we go. I’m in the garage. I’ve got loads of wood right here. Plenty wood to make the box. I’ve got a hand saw,
a drill, tape measure, screws, loads of all this wood for joining stuff together. I think we’re ready to go. Let’s just make this thing. (upbeat instrumental music) So where we’ll go? It’s been a few days
where we’ve got this thing all together. It took awhile. We had a lot of coats of wood. We just have to try now
to put it all together and stuff. Write Fragile on it. This way (mumbles) and this
is my door way to get in. Here’s my lid. What I’m gonna do is when I’m in there, this is my lid. I’m gonna sit in. I’m gonna put the lid up, screw it in place, and I’m in there and then I can just get out whenever I want by unscrewing it. Just a quick peek inside. There it is. We’ve got loads of room in there. Loads of room. Look at that. This is awesome. It’s like a full on crate. Luxury compared to what I’m used to. This is how we’re gonna transport it. We’ve got this. This is how I’m gonna get from here to the post office. So where you’re going, you can just move me around like this. Let’s go! So now I’m gonna go get my stuff. I’m gonna go buy some food, all my supplies and then, it’s time to get in. So, to the show we go! We’re in the shop. I’m just trying to think what I need so I can take with me. I need lots of food, lots of drink. It would be good if I could
take that Xbox or something. That’d be cool. Mom’s here with me. She’s here to advise me. – [Woman] Hello. (laughs) (rustling) – I need plenty to snack on. – [Woman] No, you can’t. No! – I’m gonna be there ages. – The more you drink, the more you pittle. Don’t. He’s insane. You’re insane. – What about chocolate? – [Woman] No. – Why? – [Woman] It’s gonna be hot in there. I mean, I can have it still. – We any some water. Gotta keep hydrated. You know, what I’m saying? You know what I’m. Sparkling, not sparkling, fizzy water. Not that, Phil. Here we go. Highland Spring water. All the Highland Spring. Oh, gotta have some Oreos. Cereal bars. Got have a cereal bar. If I’m gonna be in there
for like a full 24 hours, maybe even more, I need something that’s gonna keep me going. Cereal bars. Lots of carbs and stuff. I don’t know. Gotta have a can of beans. Then one of those beans. I’ve just seen these. I’ve got to have them. I just love them so much. Pickled eggs. Pickled eggs. (laughs) I’m trying to think
where I can do pee pee, poo poos. And then what do I want to do. Look at this. Look at this. A potty. It’s like a little mini toilet. Potty with a lid. No, no, no. Hold on, quick, quick. Look. What do you think of this? – [Woman] A baby toilet. – It’s like a proper toilet. – That’s good. You can actually sit on it. – I can sit, that’s good in there. It’s good, nothing can go wrong. (laughs) – [Woman] Yeah. – The final touch. Spider Man cake. Let’s go. – [Woman] Alright, come on then. Are you ready? Why are you eating that? Stop it. – Don’t (mumbles). – [Woman] You don’t need it. – (mumbles) leave me alone. Okay, so I’m back from the shop. It’s the next day. I’ve got my box ready. Let me just show you what I have done. Here, I’ve got my lid ready. I’ve got the screws poking out, ready to screw in. I’ve got my potty. My drink, Spider Man cake. I’ve got a bag full of goodies. My light. Before we go, there’s just
one think I want to do. (drilling holes with power tool) Air holes. Those are my air holes. I’m just showing you me drilling about four or five. I’ve actually gone around the whole thing. I’ve done about 50, 50 little air holes all the way around. Should be nicely ventilated. I don’t wanna do too big of holes. I’ve got people on the outside of the box can see in, so that’s why I’ve done
really small holes, but I’ve got lots of them. So I’ve got plenty of air coming in and now it’s nice, ventilated. It will go, we’re gonna go put this on the van right now. I’m gonna go put this on the van then go to the post office. I’m gonna get in the box, in the back of the van, and then my dad is gonna
wheel me into the post office and then away we go. The journey begins. Let’s go. Let’s (laughs) let’s just do this. This is it. No going back now. Everything’s been prepared. It’s taken ages to prepare it. Here we go. So I’m gonna jump in the box real quick. My dad’s gonna pull me down this ramp and then wheel me off into the post office. Let’s go quick. People around. Bye! Screw this lid on quick. Quick, quick, quick. It’s cool isn’t it? I’ve got my (mumbles). I’m just gonna screw all of these. I’ve got like eight more screws to screw in. We’re gonna be steamy in here. So I’ve just spun around 180 degrees. I was like there, now I’m here. I just feel like I can
get through this easy. You know, to undo the screws and stuff. We just need to wait a minute because I’ve been sweating so much. wait, wait, wait. I’ve been sweating so much, getting that lid on
and stuff and we’re all steaming up in here, so as soon as we’ve de-steamed
and I’ve cooled down a bit, we’ll get going into the post office. Jesus Christ it’s hot. Okay, so I’ve just re-arranged stuff so I can get nice and comfortable. I’m still in the back of the van and we’re about to enter the post office but before we do, I figure I’ll show you what I’ve got. I’ll show you what I brought with me. I brought a few more
things than what I just buy in the shop ’cause once I’m in the Post Office, I’ve gotta be real quiet. You know, I can’t get caught. If I get caught, I’m in some huge trouble. I’ll show you what I’ve got
and then it’s time to go! I’ve got my Cheetos. It’s like a multi pack bag thing. Along here, I’ve got my water, I’ve got my big bag of stuff. This is the potty. I really regret bringing the potty. The potty is huge. It’s taking away more space than I thought. Too late. So I’ve got the huge potty. I’m kind of using it like a leg rest. I brought this thing, I brought this blanket. What else we’ve got over here? I’ve got a Ouija board. All these YouTubers doing
these fake Ouija boards videos for views. You know, I thought, you know what? Let’s just bringing a
Ouija board, why not? I’ve got my Spider Man cake, I’ve got my cereal bars, my pickled eggs. A magic 8 ball, why not. Oh, that’s the (mumbles)
for the Ouija board. And Oreos. Oh, oh, oh. Oh, this. This, this! I brought my mobile phone. Obviously the mobile phone battery when you’re playing games the stuff, can just
draining in a few hours. Boom, my back up battery. This can charge you phone from dead to fall. Probably four or five times. I’ve got plenty of battery in there. I’ve got my passport. Because I’m in America,
obviously I’ve got to fly back. Passport. I’ll need passport and the beans. Two spare batteries for my camera so I’ve got plenty of battery camera. Plenty of camera battery. I don’t even know anymore. Obviously my screw driver for the lid. And this, fidget (mumbles) thing, One final thing, this, this
is the real important thing. I better set it up. This is actually a spy camera. What I’m gonna do with this is, just down here by my leg. Right there, look. Just there, there’s a little hole in the box. I’m gonna put my camera lens there. Whoa, whoa. I’m gonna put my camera
lens up to that hole. I’ve already measured it and cut it out. That will go there and I’m
gonna duct tape that there. So you’re probably thinking, what, why? This is gonna record outside of the box. So you know, exactly where I am, what’s happening. I can’t see what this thing has recorded until the end of the journey. I’m just really, really
hoping that I’ve got all the settings correct. I’ve set it for motion detection so with it doesn’t continuously record the whole journey because it would run out of battery. It would run out of memory well before we probably
even leave the country. Whenever this detects
motion on the outside of the box, it starts recording. – [Woman] Freddy. – We’ve got five more minutes. So I’m gonna land that
lens of the lenses there. I’ve gotta line it perfectly. There. So there we go. I’m gonna put a little bit more duct tape on our camera just to make sure it’s completely solid and will not move but there is the security camera. This is where things get real. Let’s just go. I’m ready. (crate dragging) Okay, so I’m in the post office right now. I think I’m in like a back room. And I think people keep going in and out. So I can’t do anything that’s
gonna make a lot of noise. I can’t play any games on
the phones or anything. Half an hour in and I’m bored already. (laughs) I’m so bored. It’s just almost quarter past three in the afternoon. 3 pm, so let’s just time to see how long this thing takes. I’ll keep you updated. But for now, I can’t do anything. Yeah, I’ll see you soon. Okay, okay. I managed to get to my Oreos without being too loud. I’ve got some drink. I’ve been playing this fidget spinner game to keep me entertained. It’s actually really good. Nothing big’s happened. I’ve just been eating and drinking and playing fidget spinner. We’ve been in here like
maybe two hours or so, I feel like any minute
now, could be the time that we get taken to the next destination. So we’re, fingers crossed. Go fidget spinner, go! (laughs) Oh, my bum are aching so bad. Ooh. I need to sit up more straight. Ahh. (burps) I think we’re in the warehouse. Warehouse must have
shut at 10 or something. ‘Cause about 10 o’clock, everything start to go quiet. Stay quiet through a bit longer just to make sure and now, I think this is it for the night. I’m pretty sure this is it so I’m just gonna make the
best of this right now, best of the situation. I’m just stuck, I’m stuck here. Obviously I can’t go opening the lid, getting out ’cause they might have like, alarms, set up around the building. If an alarm sets off,
that’s it, game over. I should have some internet on the phone. I’ve got three G, I’ve got one bar signal. We’re in a warehouse. You never get good signals in these places so I’m gonna play some games, and eat some food. I can be as loud as I want. I think. I can’t be too load in case
there’s like a security guard wandering around. I’ll keep you checked in. I’m just about to change the battery in my camera already. One battery down. I’ve still got two full ones so we should be good to go. I’ll catch you on the flip side mother. It’s about 12 or something. It’s been about two hours or something. Three hours since we last spoke. It’s starting to get really cold. (mumbles) Cheetos. I’ve already finished one bottle. And almost finished the second one. I mean, time’s going so slow. (mumbles) been recording (mumbles) the good bits and stuff. Just keep you updated every hour or two or something. I don’t know what the hell I’m saying. I don’t make sense. I’m just so tired. I’ve drank so much water. I mean, I’m surprised I’ve not needed to use the potty yet. Thank God. So far so good. Anyway let’s play some Ouija board. Why not? Oh, yeah cramped into like a position. You’re stuck. Ahh, let’s play some
Ouija board on the potty. (laughs) Oh, God. I know I mean to play one person but here we go. Hello. Hello, spirits. I think it meant to do this first. Whoa-wee. Is there any spirits here today? What? No way. (laughs) It’s just me, just me. I’m just kidding, I’m just kidding. You can’t do this one person. Yeah, I might just have a nap. I might as well go to
sleep just to make some time pass really. Yeah, I set my alarm for about four. It’s gives me about three hours nap. Hopefully that’s when
the post office opens up. I know post offices are
known for opening early. I’ll set my alarm for (burps) and then yeah, hopefully they’re early. Yeah. Oh, my God. It’s the next morning. I’m just (mumbles) wherever. It’s the next day. 6:08 am. So I set my alarm for 4 am. I couldn’t hear anything. I don’t think it opened yet, the warehouse. The work men. I set my alarm for 5 am. Still quiet. I’ve set my alarm for
6 and there’s people, I can hear people now so it must be opened up now. Ate some Cheetos, after that drank some water. I’ve only got three and a half bottles left now. So yeah, nothing’s happened in the night. I woke up a few times. I’ve got a really bad belly ache. Hopefully soon we’ll be
moving on to the aeroplane. We can get over to America. But for now, we’re still here. So yeah, I’ll just keep you updated. I’ll let you know what’s happening. (music playing) So I’ve been dragged
out of the post office. I’m in the back of a van right now. I don’t like turning my camera
on when there’s people around because I don’t want them to end it. Everything’s (mumbles) (laughs). The engine has stopped. I think we might be at
the next destination. (rustling) Ugh, my belly. My stomach. I thought drinking a lot of water will make you feel better but it won’t, it doesn’t. Ahh. It’s gotta be them eggs. It can’t be Cheetos. Oh. It’s happening, it’s happening. I need my potty. I need my potty. Ugh, quick. I can’t show you what’s happening. Ugh. I feel a lot better. Oh, no. That stinks. The whole place stinks. (laughs) I came out like water. (breathing heavily) 10:38, it’s freezing. I kind of like got woken up from the box moving. Been placed into the aeroplane. So I’m in the aeroplane now. I think I’m pretty, pretty
confident I’m in the aeroplane right now. I’m just, I just want this to end. (rustling) That’s it, we’re in there, we’re in there. I brought this as like a surprise. I wanted to tell you. You know, I was wanting to do like a little funny party scene. But I just, I just don’t care anymore. I just don’t care. I’m just tired as hell. My body. I just feel like I’m 180 years old. I just want to get there. I just want to get there. Oh, and the potty thing. The potty, I had to duct tape it. Oww. Duct tape the potty up to try and keep the smell in. But the smell is just so bad. It just won’t go. The smell will not go. I’m like over the
Atlantic Ocean in a plane and no one knows I’m here. Nobody, nobody knows I’m here. What if the plane goes down? What if? What if we have an accident? What if something happens, the plane goes down, and I’m stuck in here. I’m stuck in here. Oh, all my energy’s just zapped. I got no energy. I’ve been eating (mumbles) I’m living out of Cheetos. And my cereal bars. I don’t want anything more eggs. No more eggs. Ugh. It’s starting to get cold. We’ve been in the air for
like 30 minutes or something. It’s getting really cold. (video game music playing) I’m on my last battery. I don’t want to waste this battery. I’m just bored and stuff,
like me just in here eating and drinking and playing games. So I’m just gonna try and sleep through this flight for as long as I can. If I can. This trip is just so uncomfortable. I mean, I’ve not got a lot of food left. Oh, God. Three Oreos left. I’ve got some baked beans. I didn’t bring a can opener so I can’t open them. Stupid. One bag of Cheetos. I have one bottle of water left. And that is it. That’s all I’ve got for
the rest of the journey. Before I love you or leave you, on this flight we will ask the 8 Ball one question. Oh, magic 8 ball, will I come out of this challenge alive? What does that say? Come on focus please. There. Yeah. It says looks like yes if you can’t read it. No joke, absolutely no joke. That was first time, first time. So the next time it would probably be just like when we land I guess. When the plane’s coming down. I’ll keep you updated. So I was actually asleep when the aeroplane landed. As soon as the wheels hit the floor, like my eyes pinged open. I was awake. And then like, couple minutes after that, not long, we was out the aeroplane. I didn’t get a chance to grab my camera. I’m pretty sure I’m in a van. So I can’t, I don’t
think we’ve got long left ’til there. I know it’s been a long time since we last spoke. I’ve literally just tried to sleep as long as I can. This is it. This is the final stretch. I’m just so happy. The temperature here in the US is way hotter than in the UK. Ahh, I’m so sweaty. Okay, so the van has just stopped. I think this might be it. (mumbles) the box is being delivered. (mumbles) shh. (rustling) (wheels rolling) (knocking) – [Man] Delivery. (door opens) (knocking) – [Man] Come on, you’re in California. – Dad? Quick, quick, quick. – [Man] Come out now. – That’s it? – [Man] Thank you very much. – Okay, thank you. You want your ticket? – Ugh! – [Man] You made it. All that way. You made it. – Oh, God. Ugh. – [Man] Come here. You actually made it (mumbles). (laughs) – Yes, yes! Ugh. (laughs) I made it. Look at this. Look, look. America, baby. Look at this. Oh, the hill. Look at the mountains. The mountains! I guess this is our room then. – [Man] Yeah, this is it. – Oh, I need a shower. Ugh. So here I am in Hollywood. I’m in the Highland Shopping Centre. Shopping Mall. Look, look, look, look, look. There it is. Just there, You can just see the Hollywood sign, baby. Walking around LA. Look at this. Huge buildings. I got to shower. I feel good. We went for some food. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of it. A place called IHOP. Now I’ve got a Payday bar. I’ve never heard of it. Payday bar in LA. Eating at IHOP. What can be better? (laughs) (gasps) (dramatic music) (hip hop music)
