There's a livestreaming channel that's playing the second series of Pokémon games. Normally livestreams have one person controlling the game and everyone else simply watching them, but the creator of this livestream in particular set the game up so that anyone who comments on the stream can control the game. Anyone watching can tell the game to press any button at any time, and the game will do it. This created a game being played by thousands of people at the same time. Of course, coordinating thousands of people is impossible, so as a result the game has seriously struggled- the main character even struggles to walk in a straight line. But some combination of the main character's laughable failure to do anything, the fact that the entire audience is controlling the game together, and the unthinkable amount of progress they've made in the game so far has made Twitch Plays Pokemon a real event for people who like video games, and as a result it's gotten super-popular.
