If you don’t know what the practice of Phrogging is yet, here’s a brief summary:
The idea is to sneak (not with force, because it’ll give it away) inside someone’s house while they are still living in it, and stow-away as long as possible.
For a more reading on whether it might be real or not, see a Dope thread here.
I want to avoid the idea whether it’s a farce and explore the idea if it could be pulled off if charged with the challenge. I concede this:
It’s as illegal as it gets, I consider it a major crime.
It’s perverse, and would admonish with contempt anyone interested in actually trying it.
I’m fascinated by it regardless of the above. All ethics aside, it would be a challenging proposition.
SO… I’m of the opinion that it could be done. Not indefinitely, but certainly for a sort period of days, like 3 or 4. The girls in this arguably authentic video, Living With Strangers tried it for 5 (they were ostensibly going for 7). While it’s slow going at first, days 4 & 5 are definitely nail biting, whether fiction or not.
After watching it all the way through, there’s no way of telling if it’s real or not… some BS moments, as well as some truly authentic feeling moments. In essence, I thought they were particularly bad at this practice, and thought, if I had to, I could do way better.
So, could it be done, if it had to be done?
