I just got back from the US after Hack Day and I’ve been away a while and I’d forgotten what a wreck my flat had become in the build-up to Future of Web Apps. Anyway, I’d been recently introduced to the OSX time-lapse app Gawker and I sort of wondered whether making a bit of a performance out of the whole thing might be a suitable self-motivator! And it totally was! Here’s the result – two hours of post-work cleaning in sixty seconds! And now with added Hoff! Why don’t you have a go too? I love the idea of a whole Internet full of performance cleaning.
There’s a slightly higher quality version in Quicktime of the whole thing here: Cleaning my flat in sixty seconds.

hmm, I swear there was some subliminal messaging in there..
Tom, that was worthy of my highest praise.
That was whedon.
i spy the hoff!
Sweet! Love all the resulting subliminal-ness.
I could be dreaming, but I just saw David – The Hoff – Hasselhof in your kitchen.
please dont blipvert me with the Hoff, it sets off my seizures
Cool, the Benny Hill music popped into my head while watching it 🙂
For some reason I have an urge to keep visiting http:www.plasticbag.org.
With the // missing. Must be subliminal. 🙂
haha… excellent… love the subliminal frames snuck in there!!
good, but not sure about the nightrider music – I think what with the high speediness of the film you should of used something like the wonder woman theme tune!
“It’s only bloody Hoff day!”
Oh and you have the same Microwave as me…
Brilliant!! i am so going to do this myself. if nothing else it will disabuse my mum of the idea that i never clean.
I don’t have the eyesight (or history), but I’ve had two friends ask me if you’re rolling a joint at 1:02.
Fantastic Mr C *applause*
Bloody brilliant. I just watched it listening to the Wonder Woman theme and Stuart’s intuition was right – it’s perfect!
Heh, that was so much fun.
I am thinking about moving to London – how much does an apartment like yours cost?
Simply superb, although the Hoff Subliminal caused an involuntary shudder.
Glad to see I’m not the only person who cleans by sitting on the floor with a black plastic bag.
Nicely done sir!
Was that the original or a remix of the nightrider theme? What version?
So inspiring! Now I just need to light a candle in respect of my hunk o’ burnin’ love Hasselhoff, watch more episodes of Ze, and keep more on top of plasticbag.org.
…wait. Where’d those thoughts come from?
I think I love you. Lucky for you, I have a boyfriend and live on the other side of the world.
I agree that this – all speeded-up videos in fact – needs Benny Hill music. Gawker should just slap it on there by default I reckon.
That was extremely fantastic.
That was awesome. =)
Nice, and I love the subliminal messages. Those pesky experts say they don’t work, but maybe that’s just what they want you to think.
LOL. That was awesome. And what a motivator for cleaning your place and having fun at the same time!
Wanna come over and clean my place? You got a fine technique.
Wow, this wonderful technique could reduce furhter (after smoking, beer, etc) the time spent during sex, till it reaches the bare essential. Fabulous.
I did something similar this summer. It took me three weeks, though, and I definitely wouldn’t have finished cleaning if I hadn’t been making a movie of it: room cleaning.
