Man Becomes Internet Sensation When He Falls Asleep on the Slash Key (VIDEO)

by Jenny Erikson

I’ve seen some people fall asleep in some pretty odd positions while traveling on airplanes. One time, this poor fellow in the middle seat lowered his tray table and just conked out on it like it was a pillow.

But I’ve never seen someone fall asleep with a finger on the keyboard. But a video on YouTube titled “Dude sleeping on jet w/finger on slash key” has changed that. Someone filmed a guy on a plane snoozing away, his finger pressed firmly to the “///////” key, and page after page on his computer filled with slashes.

The video has gone viral, with well over half a million views, which may make you question what’s wrong with the human race that we find this sort of voyeurism entertaining, but I posit that one of the reasons for so many views is that some of the comments are hilarious.

Take a look, then keep reading to see some of the awesome comments on the YouTube page.

My kids do all the time, but no, nothing comes to mind. I mean, I've fallen asleep with my face in my pathophysiology book, but that's not really 'silly'.

My husband fell asleep doing the dishes one night. He also fell asleep one night painting. We were painting our manager scene for Christmas and he painted Joseph's mouth green when he fell asleep.
