The stunt piece headline is nearly always a first-person, declarative statement. The first word is "I" or "We" or maybe "What Happened When I..." You have seen them float across your social feeds, screaming for a click: I Let My Boyfriend Dress Me for a Week. I Fertilized My Salad with Period Blood. I Tried Anal Weed Lube So You Don't Have To. I Put Scrunchies on my Boyfriend's Penis. I Dressed Like Hermione Granger For a Week & This Is What Happened. I Came to Work Wearing Only Underwear (and This Is What Happened). I Wore a Spandex Diaper to a Strip Club So I Could Come While Receiving a Lap Dance.I Tried to Eat Hot Dogs Competitively and Nearly Died. I Lived as Marilyn Monroe for a Week. I Used Men's Beauty Products for a Week. I Took a Photograph of Everything I Ate for a Month. I Tried Living Like Dan Bilzerian and Realized What His Problem Is.
