Did anyone ever do a video on the guy behind this? I'd love to hear the real story.

Reply All did an entire episode on the story.

There is also the 2012 movie, Safety Not Guaranteed.

tldr: Dude posted it as a joke to see what kind of responses he would get. He expected a couple dozen and ended up getting a flood of responses. A lot of them were really tragic and poignant, like parents wanting to prevent their kid's suicide.

I'm calling the one number about building my own concrete dome... 👍🏻
