Spiegel Online covers Jörg Sprave

SPON (SPiegel ONline), one of Germany's biggest online news magazines, has covered The Slingshot Channel with an article that made the formats title page yesterday.

Read the article (German language)

SPON had almost 200 million visits in May 2013 - after bild.de (a much more low level magazine that covered me a few months ago), it is number 2.

I think the reporter did a really good job in capturing my personality.

  1. I'd like to read the article but I cant read German.
    I have a solution to your Oreo slingshot/crossbow. Instead of using metal 'Oreos' use real Oreos but cool them in liquid nitrogen first. They'll be as hard as steel for a little while

    2. I tried frozen Oreos, but they shatter like glass.

  2. 4.5 million clicks got the film with the condom machine - and Sprave soon landed a thank you card in the mail box. Handwritten, by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. His video, it says, is the largest external source of clicks on their condom competition was. Spraves are completely pointless fanart then in fact not.

    1. I am very sorry but it seems that I deleted the whole beginning of the article on accident pasting the last peragraph. It is a good article I do think you should read it still (using google translator).
