We’ve got a great video here of what happens when you step up to the plate knowing the plate is not in any way, shape or form your friend. It’s the arm wrestling video 2017 has been waiting for.
I dunno about you but I haven’t seen or been engaged in an arm wrestle for quite some time, probably because I’m not a beta male and can impress girls through self-deprecating humour rather than muscle contests. The fact this footage has emerged is shocking enough.
But not quite as shocking as the content itself…
Call me old-fashioned but it kinda reminds me of that Revels ad where the guy eats a coffee sweet and breaks down on the floor and that annoying, smug guy goes ‘Coffee. Haha!’
The fact this video doesn’t include that guy makes this watch marginally less terrible. But it’s still ‘angin.
Watch the arm wrestle here:
The match took place in Vietnam and was pretty well-intended considering so.
By the looks of it, the victim in all of this appears to be more stacked, more swole. It's anybody's guess why his arm got popped out of shape.
Back in June, a similarly skin-crawling video of an arm wrestle gone awry went viral.
Two women went at it for the sake of Iron Lady, an Argentinian TV show segment in which contestants are pitted against each other in physical and intellectual challenges to win a large crash prize and a brand new shiny car.
Get a load of this:
The show's host, Chino Leunis, later wrote on Twitter:
Unfortunately Pamela broke her arm. She's been put in plaster and tomorrow she's going to be operated on. It's a terrible shame and we will be attentive and help her.
It was a great shock for everyone involved, I can assure you. Live TV is a daily learning experience.
My tip: stick to self-deprecating humour to impress people.
