A bizarre "blank-staring contest" in the Chinese city of Chengdu Tuesday saw 200 people battle to pull off the most spaced-out facial expression. Participants were asked to sit or lie down and stare ahead blankly, without moving or laughing. According to Shanghaiist, the eventual winner managed to hold a vacant look for a grueling five hours before taking home the prize, a new iPhone 6. The game originated in South Korea as part of a call for people to enjoy a slower-paced life, The Associated Press reports.
