The video above is of some European television show host, whose show consists of candid camera pranks. Something went horribly, horribly wrong here. A couple of thoughts:
- Who immediately thinks that this is the best solution to stop someone? “Why, I’m going to falcon kick this fleeing bandit!” Answer: Someone who has done this before.
- Jackass only worked because those guys were coked up to the point they couldn’t feel pain and certainly couldn’t be thwarted by the raised leg of some stripped European.
- Most candid camera shows suck. I’m sure this one does, too, as the prank was “getting some guy with a net.” A net?! WAKKA WAKKA! This show got infinitely better once the plan was derailed by foot.
