Not quite what I expected:


#3

I legitimately can’t tell if this is parody or not. You can feel free to take that as a critique of my skills.


#4

I was really hoping for something sexier.


#5

I’m so relieved there is someone else who feels this way. I’m genuinely confused…


#6

For this new class of behaviour and for further anthropological observations of the human race, stay tuned to boingboing.


#7

Its a parody of skate webclips. The guy who made it absolutely destroys everything in his path on the skateboard -> http://kingpin.mpora.com/videos/alex-siggi-siegfried.html theres also clips from him skating on youtube too


#8

It’s what’s called “German Humor”.
(Good thing their economy doesn’t rely on exporting that…)


#9

Geez, so many haters out there.


#10

Nice, but there is only [one extreme sport][1].

This is amazing. This is the most extreme part of all. Really? I mean… legitimately?

Dude. It’s a wheelbarrow.


#12

THe 3rd video is from quebec, not france. There aren’t many latinos and massive american suvs in france.


#13

Dammit @NGART, I suspected that. Made an update. To make up for the error, here’s something for @crenquis ’ disappointment.


#14

MAN I DON’T KNOW. The internet has wrecked my expectations of ridiculous at this point, I just can’t tell anymore.


#15

so thats why public works take such a long time to finish…


#16

Now I am eagerly awaiting the inevitable “no wheelbarrowing” signs to start littering the public space. Thanks Obama.


#17

Seems to me the real challenge would be to do all those stunts with a load of bricks or gravel in it.


#18

Years ago I went to an exhibit at Balboa Park in San Diego on medieval torture devices. I can vividly recall a form of punishment where a wheelbarrow is permanently chained to convict, forcing them to push the thing around everywhere they went. This guy probably would have been the happiest person ever.


#19

Or a person. I think that would be the ultimate, really.

“Private Johnson, you were seen at 2am pushing a wheelbarrow across the town square. What did you have in it?”
“Sir, you, sir!”
