    Hi!
    I'm looking for examples of unusual (possibly past) HITs. For instance, a HIT for parents of babies, asking workers to open a webcam and let the baby watch some video, or a HIT asking workers to download an app to their mobile device.

    Could you please help me?

    Many thanks!

    There was a hit that asked you to take a picture of your bathroom from your point of view while sitting on the toilet. That was special.

    The one that showed a video of a man opening port-a-johns, (like at least 15) and showing what was inside. (Viewed from outside, not too close up thank god) It was after like a music festival or something. Afterwards we had to register our level of disgust. I stil can see them.

    I had a survey HIT a several days ago that showed a short video of a man digging through used dog waste bags; opening them up and crushing the contents while wearing gloves. Followed by levels of disgust and emotions compared to a baseline before viewing.

    I'd been happier, amazingly, hope the data proved useful. Haha.
