  3. This guy’s love is like a ticking clock, Beserker.

    Someone toss him a hammer.

  5. Jayson D says:

    At least he looks good in those shorts, that’s more than a lot of us could hope for

  6. This is nothing. Check out How Lithuanians do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r99MiiLcLM0

    Is he saying “mein arse” at the end?

  8. Chentzilla says:

    Thought that the beginning of the video looks like a setup for a porn flick. Put on my headphones, heard heavy breathing and German speech…

    “It only hurts when I laugh.”

    This is begging to become the next DOWNFALL-style-subtitling meme.

    Why Stalingrad didn’t go well.

    He may be lucky he didn’t go through.  I can imagine some sharp ice shard doing serious damage.

      Never mind ice shards – getting trapped under ice is a very effective way of drowning yourself.

      What we saw was probably the absolute best possible outcome.

    ice, ice, baby!

    I Laughed Out Loud.

    Does that make me a bad person?

    • BookGuy says:

       I don’t think so.  The giggling at the end is pretty infectious, and it shows that the guy probably wasn’t seriously hurt.

  15. Deidzoeb says:

    This is why I don’t watch Tosh.0, dammit. 

  16. Cringe. I did not enjoy this.

  17. vance_tam says:

    The only possible way that could have been made better was if the ice had given way when he hit it with his fist.

    Thanks for this video. It made my afternoon so much better. I needed a good laugh.

  18. This is clearly Flea and Peter Stormare (1:07) behind the scenes on The Big Lebowski. Admirable how they stay in character.

  19. JoshP says:

    I guess it’s not surprising to know that Steve-O has a Lithuanian doppelganger…  I think the rough translation of what he said right after he hit the ice was, LOL I think I broke my ass. 

  20. SomeGuyNamedMark says:

    The thought of someone busting their tailbone makes me cringe in sympathy.  Ow…ow…

  21. Henry Pootel says:

    I’m pretty sure that’s how grandma broke her coccyx

  22. taras says:

    It’s “Motherfucker, fuck the fucking world, and my new band is called ?Sizkil”. But “fuck the fucking cold” works too.

  23. He should put some ice on that booboo.

  24. jimh says:

    Reminds me of a friend, who brilliantly decided to kick the head off a small snowman while passing a neighborhood front yard. He launched a running kick, the head didn’t budge, and he broke his foot. Cold, FTW!

    • Ray Perkins says:

      Wife was at a party once where some guys decided to jump into the snow, naked, after a sauna. Trouble was, there had been freezing rain. One torn nutsack.

    • koanhead says:

       I was driving a large truck down a street one wintry day when I espied what looked like a large snowball that had rolled into the lane. I thought I’d do the neighborly thing and bust it under my wheel.
      It turned out to be a giant snow-covered rock, and my 4 tonne truck got at least 2 wheels in the air. Wound up completely off the road, on the same side, facing the opposite direction. Exciting.
      At the time I thought “Thank flip there was no one around for me to hit”, but on reflection it might have been better if someone was around, because then I wouldn’t have tried it on in the first flippin place.

    On the brightside, while his tailbone took a beating, there were a pair of balls in his trunks grateful for the reprieve.  Win-win.

  26. Can be quite dangerous for back injuries, but one good ice braking picture seems good addition:  http://aadress.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/jaalohkuja1.jpg

    He’s lucky he didn’t break his coccyx.

    Ow my balls

  30. philarego says:

    I think that was the sound of a tailbone snapping.

  31. In Soviet Deutschland ice fucking fucks you.

  32. baronkarza says:

    Ouch, talk about skidmarks!

  33. Preston Sturges says:

    He needed a smooth talking wingman to break the ice. 

  34. Preston Sturges says:

    He was scooting across the ice like a dog with worms rubbing his ass on the carpet.

    Where we live, that’s what we call entertainment.
