According to a clever, short documentary-style video that pokes fun at the tiny house craze, a man lived in a hollow 8-foot steel cube sculpture on the streets of New York City near Washington Square Park for approximately two years.

The man’s miniature layout includes a small chemical toilet, hot plate, dartboard and a stationary bike-powered electrical setup, along with other cozy-home features.

Clearly a marketing spoof, though a shrewd one, the guy claims to have found peace with the technology-infused world around him thanks to a quick meditation technique being promoted by the founders of athletic wear company lululemon athletica and decides to move out from his steel refuge to enter the world.
