Reporter asks a man "What's your name?". She immediately regrets it

It's like his brain is a live twitch feed or something.

I'm going to memorize this monologue and wait for the day when I'm being interviewed on the street and then I'm gonna do this shit word for word.  

Edit: completed step 1 sorry about the shitty screenshot. On a closed network work PC haha 

Edit 2: because you all deserve it, here's the transcript: 

My name? Oh let me tell you my name.  Uh, I'm confused. Because uh you know, like we're supposed to believe in the ministry, right? So is, uh, is the church and state supposed to be seperate? I'm confused cuz I never went to school. Right? Is a confused person get a resolution? I don't understand. You see, when you go like that, right, you have a cross, right. Two sticks, right. And that's how I felt when I was in Waterloo. Cuz when I walked in Waterloo and smiled at people, they treated me like a vampire. They used the cross and they went like this by not smiling at me.  In Toronto, hey hi guys, you know me. Steve Spiros. Easy going? Those who know me, I'm a nobody. You understand? And you can't kill a person with no body. So, why am I afraid? I'm not afraid. I'm afraid of the boogeyman, who is the Boogeyman? You figure it out! I'm getting out of here. I'm going back to Waterloo where the vampires hang out! And I'm going to wear my sunglasses at night. You know why? Because women show their tits, have short skirts, and then they feel violated when I look at them! Why? Because I have sunglasses on and I'm weird. Uh, I'm from humberside. I'm sorry if I made a fool of humberside. But all those people who called me a sleepwalker, I woke up. now I'm going back to sleep because I'm going to be committed in an isolation room, because I'm going back to the ministry and allow them to perceive me as I am! A fuck up! Goodbye! Hey Toronto the good. Look at the square! It was a shithole when I worked here. Now it looks like New York Manhattan! Where are the bums? There's no bums here. Toronto doesn't have bums. But Waterloo, they're creating bums! They created me. Why? I don't know. Maybe it's the church. Talk to the pope, he knows everything. I had it! I'm gonna die! How can you die, when you're dead. Oh wait a second, I'm going to be crucified, right? I'm not going to raise my voice, because I'm committed to the Lord. I love you.

This guy is demonstrating a lot of disorganised speech behaviours, including clanging

Those who know me... I'm a nobody. You understand? And you can't kill a person with no body.

You can see that he's continuing sentences due to the sound of the word rather than its meaning.

He's displaying something called pressure of speech, which is caused by an underlying flight of ideas

This seems to be verging on word salad; he's definitely displaying some signs of schizophrenia or mania.

"I'm going back to sleep cause I'm gonna be committed."

Most accurate thing he probably said.

Twitch Plays Steve Spiros

I like what you're doing here. Imagine if hundreds, then thousands of people memorized this just for their time in the spotlight. I'd really like that.

Don't forget to rip open your shirt.

His name is Steve Spiros and he is weird.

"My name? Oh let me tell you my name..." And then he says the longest name I've ever heard.

My name is

I'm confused. Because, uh... y'know... like, we're supposed to believe in the Ministry, right? So is the- is- is the church and state supposed to be separate? I'm confused because I never went to school. Right? Is a confused person get a resolution? I don't understand. You see, when you go like that... right? You have a cross, two sticks, right?

They used the cross and they went like this by not smiling at me. In Toronto - hey, hi guys! You know me, Steve Spiros, easy-going? Those who know me... I'm a nobody. You understand? And you can't kill a person with no body. So... why am I afraid? I'm not afraid. I'm afraid of the boogey man - who's the boogey man? You figure it out! I'm gettin' outta here! I'm going back to Waterloo where the vampires hang out. And I'm gonna wear my sunglasses at night - you know why? Because women show their tits... have short skirts... and then they feel violated when I look at them! Why? Because I have sunglasses on and I'm weird. Uhh - I'm from Humberside... I'm sorry if, uh, I made a fool of Humberside, but... all those people who called me a sleep-walker? I woke up. Now I'm going back to sleep because I'm going to be committed in an isolation room, because I'm gonna go back to the Ministry, and allow them to perceive me as I am. A fuck-up! Goodbye!

You killed my father. Prepare to die.

I thought it was funny when I watched this a while ago but now I just feel bad since I think he might be schizophrenic :/

I choose to believe this comment

I like to imagine, he's from the future and 'The Ministry' is some sort of organization which took over the world. This will all make sense in 2055. 

It's less sad.

Not that dude, but here's a pastebin:

Steve "The Legend of Waterloo" Spiros' monologue.

The part about the tits really got me. Who else is asking these hard hitting questions? I honestly feel bad for him though, dudes' obviously got some issues.

I've learned a few new things. Thanks for breaking this down.

He raises some valid points though - "how can you die when your dead?"

I want Nicolas Cage to reenact this.

Holy shit if he streamed on irl it would be top stream easily

"You see, I'm a nobody, and you can't kill someone with no body." I should frame that.

Rambling thought is pretty classic for schizophrenia.

It's called schizophasia. Especially the "Those who know me, I'm a nobody. You understand? And you can't kill a person with no body" bit really strikes me as a typical example.

Manic episode. All hallmarks, including removing clothing.

you got your word salad tossed.

That and the vampire thing... I think there is something there.

Welcome back to another episode of Religion or Ambien! You be the judge!

Nah, just pissed that the vampires can be seen that were created in Waterloo and the ministry is in line with the Pope who double crossed with sticks and that he's not easy going anymore and recognized as a nobody with NO BODY. Also... We apologize to Humberside.

I feel ya brother. The struggle is real.

I lifeguard and constantly have people asking me for my name, how old I am, number etc, and It would be hilarious to reply with this. Downside is it would probably distract me from my water and a kid would drown.

"'cause I have sunglasses and I'm weird"

uhh yeah dude, you actually hit the nail on the head.

https://imgur.com/xsRDWZy

That dude is nuttier than squirrel shit.

Gotta break a few eggs to make that delicious inside joke omelette...

On the scale from sane to WalMart, he's just north of a Tom Cruise.

And committed to the lord.

Is this going to become the next copypasta?

Wow, I had no idea mania included removal of clothing sometimes. This clears a lot up for me. Quick story: about a week ago I was hanging out with some friends having some drinks, and one of the guys there starts rambling about how much money he makes, how he's donated more to the DNC than most people make in a lifetime, yadda yadda.. and then at the end be goes, "You know what, fuck it" and took off his shirt.

The rest of us just kind of laughed it off like the ramblings of a mad man, but your comment really made it hit home. I wonder if he has a mental illness.

This is the correct answer! I was a Psych Major, worked 5 years in the field, 1.5 years in a locked long-term mental facility.

We had a few amazing examples of this word salad speech pattern. One which I will never forget, a patient angrily screeeaming "GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN!! 9-1-1!!!"

Me... You know my name is I'm confused. Because, uh... y'know... like, we're supposed to believe in the Ministry, right? So is the- is- is the church and state supposed to be separate? I'm confused because I never went to school. Right? Is a confused person get a resolution? I don't understand. You see, when you go like that... right? You have a cross, two sticks, right?

I'm from Waterloo, I can confirm.

weird. they should do a study about clanging and psychedelics, because ive witnessed that happening to such peoples many times.

That dude has the longest name I've ever heard.

Unfortunately a lot of the chronically homeless are severely mentally ill

So... Just the kind of individual who should be walking around alone in a big city with lots of noise and movement.

Or dial it up to 11 with Christopher Walken

Reminds me of a Trump speech

In the early days of LSD, that is where a lot of interest came from -- the idea of a "model psychosis" (i.e., that LSD could make you have something somewhat similar to schizophrenia, temporarily).

The belief was that non-schizophrenics could better understand schizophrenia/empathize with schizophrenics if they took LSD to experience a "model psychosis."

Just re-type it out, it will help you with the memorization :-)

Imagine if hundreds of people walked in every day, sang a bar, and walked out.

Why friends, they'd think it's a movement.

Those are just some fire bars

Like an Ultimate Warrior promo.

He's a nobody. Understand? And you can't rip a shirt off a person with NO BODY!

A proper Christian man takes his sunglasses off when he wants to ogle women.

live like a windrammer as he fucks

All this guy needs to do to elevate himself to a higher plane of existence is to .

Hegel did have an impactful idealist psychology(https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georg_Wilhelm_Friedrich_Hegel). Maybe your man flew too close to the sun and got burnt. It could have been the state or the illuminati or do you know what else gets burnt, leaves! Leaves are part of the tree of capitalism through which all money and power flow. There's a poison in our roots and caripillars on our leaves - and not the beautiful butterfly kind! If we don't stop it now, buterflies could have huge impacts to seemingly unrelated events across the world. Me and you and him and me could all do that. CHAOS!

Waterloo, home of excellent water slides. Napoleon's favorite water park.

This explains so much about Portland.

this could be the new:

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

That depends. Who's asking?

I don't know. Maybe it was the church. Talk to the pope he knows everything.

I think it's just sad. This is obviously a man who's having some mental problems. It's not pretty seeing somebody so far out of reality. I hope for his and his family's sake he's doing better these days.

This guy reminds me of a schitzophrenic guy I met when I used to work in a bookstore. It was particularly messed up because the schitzo guy had clearly been a college professor or intellectual type, so he would see author names and say something relevant, and then go into utter nonsense. Like specifically I remember: "HEGEL! THE ABSOLUTE IDEA!" and then total a monologue of nonsense, afterwards. Creepy.

Hello, confused. Because uh you know, like we're supposed to believe in the ministry, right? Is a confused person get a resolution? I don't understand. You see, when you go like that, right, you have a cross, right. Two sticks, right. And that's how I felt when I was in Waterloo. Cuz when I walked in Waterloo and smiled at people, they treated me like a vampire. They used the cross and they went like this by not smiling at me. In Toronto, hey hi guys, you know me. Steve Spiros. Easy going? Those who know me, I'm a nobody. You understand? And you can't kill a person with no body. So, why am I afraid? I'm not afraid. I'm afraid of the boogeyman, who is the Boogeyman? You figure it out! I'm going back to Waterloo where the vampires hang out! And I'm going to wear my sunglasses at night. You know why? Because women show their tits, have short skirts, and they feel violated when I look at them! Why? Because I have sunglasses on and I'm weird. Uh, I'm from humberside.

A fuck up! Goodbye! Hey Toronto the good. Look at the square! It was a shithole when I worked here. Now it looks like New York Manhattan! Where are the bums? There's no bums here. Toronto doesn't have bums. But Waterloo, they're creating bums! They created me. Why? I don't know. Maybe it's the church. Talk to the pope, he knows everything. I had it! I'm gonna die! How can you die, when you're dead. Oh wait a second, I'm going to be crucified, right? I'm not going to raise my voice, because I'm committed to the Lord. I love you, i'm dad.

Same here. Only thing that threw me off was the guy in the video is well dressed and groomed. The people I worked with in and out of hospitals were never this put together. The speech says mania with psychotic features, the clothes say I'm on my lunch break from the office.

But he is not going to raise his voice.

Ugh and hes from Waterloo. If he was from Kitchener I would understand the behaviour and general insanity.

Most people walking naked down the street are probably in a manic episode.

Doesn't look like she regrets it at all.

-0,5 for misspelling Gandhi though

Thought he was going to say Hugh Mungus.

This sort of comment is why I spend so much time on Reddit. Very interesting.

Well that and the porn.

My favorite thing is that he randomly said (presumably) his name in the middle of his speech.

Just an FYI. I lived on the same block as this guy and he OWNS a large, very nice house.

YONGE & DUNDAS is Toronto's piccadilly circus

Saying that Dundas Square has no bums was the craziest part of his rant.

" For all those people who call me a sleepwalker..IM AWAKE... And I'm going back to sleep"... That's deep fam

Imagine going back to the 1970s and talking about life today...

Actually to be honest you'd probably have to go back way further. I can't believe the 70s were only 40 years ago...

This guy gets it.

This is how Michael Scott talks

Yeah he's definitely got some disorganized thinking going on, which is a possible positive symptom of schizophrenia. I almost called it word salad but most of his sentences do make sense, just not in the context of the conversation.

+1 for effort brother

As someone who went to UWaterloo... He must have been a math student.

You can get anything you want at Alice's restaurant. And walk out.

This kid

grew up

lol right! I was gonna say if nothing else he has a future as a slam poet.

He knows what hes doing.

Hyper-sexuality is pretty common for manics. Thats why he is talking about looking at boobs and skirts.

Or just ask Tommy Wiseau to do it.

I knew a schizophrenic dude who was cogent and comprehensible and present etc when on heavy doses of acid (and also when sober) but give the guy a sniff of weed and he'd literally be lying on his back speaking in tongues.

And you can't untoss a salad. Don't even try

This is why we don't go out during daytime.

Well the vid is five years old and has been posted here a few times before. Not exactly new

What is dead may never die.

When trump speaks his ideas connect. So with trump you could trace back to how he got from a to b to c whereas here, it's completely random to the listener.

I'm not condoning trump btw just pointing out the difference

She is now ready for the trump cabinet interviews.

im familiar with this notion. i also know about how people more prone to schizo shouldnt take lsd. things like family history can be important to note as well.

i wonder how real model psychosis actually is. and then i wonder what happens with schizos on lsd.

itd be cool to read stuff about clanging tho.

well he tried so +0,25

Just yesterday walking out of the subway a guy that looked 100% normal went on like this to me. He kept asking what was in my bag and that I couldn't kill him with my gamma rays. It really threw me off and I didn't know what to make of it. This video just game me the ohhhhhh moment.

My name? Oh let me tell you my name. Uh, I'm confused

Thought this was just gonna be a great dad joke.

My name is

I love you.

And the chronically mentally ill are severely homeless.

streamed on irl ?

I think he went to school in Waterloo and that's why he's going off on it and saying Waterloo made him like this.

A New Hope came out in 1977

I typed it out on a work PC on a closed network :(

If I'd taken a screenshot I wouldn't be able to upload it to the web lol

That's what they were wondering too.

I actually just typed it out myself into pastebin.

get half way then be like sorry..... my name a jeff
