A word that is 3.5 hours long

Though it may be a cheap publicity gimmick, Dmitry Golubovskiy, CEO of Esquire Russia, gives a hypnotic 3.5 hour performance that fits somewhere between Cage's Diary: How to Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse) and SchwittersUrsonate.  It is a heroic recitation of what is disputably the longest word in the English language: the chemical name of the protein Titin. Even if you don't watch the whole thing, it is humorous to skip ahead to see the flower on the left slowly wilting throughout.
