The young man, with the sailor’s cap on his head, evokes a “cold, quiet” video. The story identified by Southwest it is part of a game event. The YouTubeur tells of having entered the fort after a 2.5 km journey in the middle of the sea in the middle of the night.

“Everything for a 25-30m abseil over a fort in the middle of the night was great, it’s the kind of adventure we love,” he explains.


For about thirty minutes we see him wandering around the fort emptied of candidates and technical teams. Everything is shown there from the tower of Father Fouras, the infirmary or even the technical platform built a few meters from the fort to enter “safely” in the monument, according to the production. “I’m not going to show you too much evidence, because you risk being extremely disappointed, because it’s really cardboard, (…) it’s just empty, fake”, he denigrates.

“I felt betrayed, the famous stone platform does not exist,” he jokes, referring to the platform where the candidates must bring the boyars at the end of the game.
