Twitch plays Pokemon

Over the last week or so, something like 50k people daily have visited Twitch Plays Pokemon. It's like a cross between a video game and a social experiment.

The nostalgia of the music, graphics and, well, the game, are enough to make you want to watch it for hours, but you have to watch 50k+ people try to control the main character. At the time of writing this, the stream has been going for almost 5 days and the chat is stuck in Team Rocket HQ after somehow obtaining 4 badges. The players have released the starter Pokemon (Charmander), a Spearow and a Rattata. 

With no note on how close the final battle is, this is going to be a fun one to watch.
