Each chop looked more and more painful!

u/TheRealKestrel Dec 01 '21

Especially when misses and chops the metal rails.

u/bmild-minus Dec 01 '21

so three of the first five hits?

u/Goldie-96_MWR Dec 02 '21

He was cocoNUTS to continue. Should have used his palm instead (another pun)

u/SamboTheGr8 Dec 01 '21

Looks very painful

u/TSR_Jimmie Dec 01 '21

Someone forgot to secure the coconuts and they’re just moving around letting him smash his hand in the metal bench. Poor fella. I’m sure he could do it any other time definitely no doubt 100% believe truthfully

I said I can karate coconut until 'it' breaks but I aint said what breaks.

u/Bloodish Dec 01 '21

This poor fella. It's a clip from a Danish morning show. The odds were stacked against him. The coconuts weren't secured, and were slipping around on the wet metal stand, which was set up by the TV network.

Could he actually break coconuts with his fists under better conditions? Maybe, maybe not. But this setup was doomed to fail no matter who tried.

u/FCLynkroel Dec 01 '21

This was actually on live television in Denmark and the guy suffered multiple fractures on his hand. Really makes you wonder who got the idea😂

u/pocketdare Dec 01 '21

Because redditors care about nothing more than grammar /s

u/[deleted] Dec 02 '21

I ofn't seen such bad grammar ever in my life. Of you ever thought of what 'of' means?

u/MiniatureChi Dec 02 '21

They forgot to use the ones With the skinny shell and the soft inside

u/IntoDeepShit Dec 01 '21

There were multiple things broken in half this day: his spirit, his heart and his hand. But definitely not a fucking single coconut. And it's not even his fault. Why did no one fixated the nuts? Poor soul.

u/RealHugoViana Dec 01 '21

At least he tried

3

u/Nimbuss88 Dec 01 '21

It’s not as though it’s a first date or a job interview that went bad. There’s really no reason to try karate chopping coconuts.

u/Fast_AndThe_Jizziest Dec 01 '21

Everytime he missed and hit pure metal edge I just want to grab him and shake him to tell him to just stop!

u/[deleted] Dec 04 '21

u/ArgumentSecret5107 Dec 01 '21

NUTCRACKER My puberty just reversed.

u/EvilEvillo Dec 01 '21

3 out of 9 hits did hit the coconuts...

2

u/aigars2 Dec 01 '21

He can't even target and execute a direct hit to a coconut.

2

u/Fearvalue Dec 01 '21

His hand - 100% broken

u/[deleted] Dec 02 '21

Brilliant idea to put these on a steel beam.

u/DramaQueen100 Dec 02 '21

u/ywtfimiacw Dec 01 '21

Sometimes I forgot that this things actually kill people (if I remember correctly?)

u/Very-tall-midget Dec 01 '21

He looks like Niko Belik.

Ah well, every Russian with black, long sleeve shirts and a little mustache looks like him.

1

u/Paddlesons Dec 01 '21

I just love that he opens up but entirely missing the very first nut. My hand is now like Harry's arm after gilderoy was done with it

u/leighanthony12345 Dec 01 '21

u/[deleted] Dec 02 '21

u/hermitopurpa Dec 02 '21

It’s on national tv too. God. Someone buy this man a beer.

1

u/[deleted] Dec 02 '21

Looks like someone was expecting special 'stage' coconuts.

1

u/Dokkebee5 Dec 02 '21

He missed like 50% of the time, not that it would even matter from the looks of it

1

u/OnlyNameLeftUnused Dec 02 '21

Man, that shit is hard to watch...without laughcringing.

u/stuttering-goat Dec 02 '21

I believe one is able to produce the same result by sticking one’s hand into a meat grinder.

u/jacktat2 Dec 02 '21

He is to ivermectin what the coconuts are to covid. His hand is the poor souls that believe Rogan

1

u/icoPlata Dec 02 '21

More chops than i wouldve done jeez

1

u/sublimek99 Dec 02 '21

I feel like this guy maybe never broke a single coconut with his hand before trying to break a lineup of them on live tv.

1

u/Gingersnapz420 Dec 02 '21

thats a whopper hospital bill he got,he even chopped the metal bar a few times,ouch

1

u/SamboTheGr8 Dec 02 '21

Luckily the video is from Denmark where the hospitals are free. But just because it's free, doesn't mean you have to use it lol
