Ninh explains the Top 10 Weirdest Sports inthe World … Part 3.
You’re doing another one of these? Boy you must be really running out of ideas.
Yeah kind of.
But it’s mainly because more and more weirdsports keep appearing on my YouTube feed.
if you haven’t already do so, subscribe(obviously) and turn on the notifications so that you can see these on your feed, buthere’s 10 more of the weirdest sports in the world.
#1 SporthockerAre you a lazy bastard who like to sit down on a chair, but finds the act of doing soincredibly boring? Why not spice it up a notch and be a sporthocker.
Those normally sensible Germans have inventeda sport where you have to find the most creative way of sitting down on a chair.
The idea is to perform the most visually aestheticway to sit down on a special stool, known as a hocker and the person adjudged to havedone so, wins.
I kid you not, this is an actual thing andit’s pretty big in Germany.
#2 YukigassenIt wouldn’t be a weirdest video without the Japanese, who have taken a simple pastimeand turned it into a violent sport.
Imagine, taking a simple snowball fight andarming players with pads, helmets and snowballs so hard that they feel like rocks.
That’s basically what the Japanese call, Yukigassen.
The game is played between two teams and theidea is to hit your opponent with these specially manufactured snowballs, which are all thesame size and weight.
Once an opponent is hit, they’re out.
The team that scores the most amount of hits, captures their opponents’ flag without being hit or eliminates their opponents completely… wins.
It’s weird, but I’d totally play it.
#3 Underwater … anything.
Take a perfectly normal sport and play itin a pool underwater and you get a “completely new sport”.
Believe it or not, sports exist such as underwaterfootball, underwater hockey, underwater rugby, and underwater target shooting … but I’venot seen anyone play underwater quidditch yet.
I assume some idiot watching this video willbe inventing that shortly.
#4 Ga gaThis was originally an Israeli sport that was introduced into the US.
And it kinda looks like dodgeball but in avery small octagonal ring.
And that’s exactly what it is.
The idea is to slap the ball into anotherperson and if it hits them anywhere below the waist, they’re out and they have toleave the ring.
This process of elimination carries on untilthere’s only one player left.
If you’re the last person standing, youwin … kind of.
#5 Pillow FightingOooh MMA, it’s too violent.
We don’t want our ladies being hurt in combat.
That’s probably what the calm country ofCanada thought when they invented this … professional pillow fighting.
A sport specifically for women, the idea isto beat the crap out of your opponent using a giant oversized pillow.
Most moves are legal so long as you use thepillow in some form or another.
Grappling, hits to the back of the head, chokingyour opponent until they asphyxiate… it’s all perfectly legal so long as you use thepillow.
I think the stereotype of Canada being a peacefulnation is grossly exaggerated.
Sweden apparently has a distinct lack of horses.
How else do you explain why they choose todo equestrian showjumping with bunny rabbits.
Yes, the rules of the sport are almost identicalto Olympic version played with horses, and the rabbit who completes the course with thefewest amount of faults is the winner.
And for those who think that this is justa gimmick, they now have a World Rabbit Hopping Organization that organizes contests aroundthe world.
#7 ZorbingWould you like to roll down a hill inside a giant inflatable ball, suffering from enoughG forces to make you spew vomit all over yourself? Well now you can! In various parts of the world but especiallyin England – you can race these things.
The fastest down the hill or the first oneto get to the bottom in a race, is the winner.
Well, the English have to be the best in theworld at something, right? #8 Giant Pumpkin Kayaking.
When you don’t have the money to do normalkayaking, why not grow a giant pumpkin and use that instead? Said no-one ever.
Wait a minute, they actually did that?! Yes, over in North America – there are placeswhere you can contest races in giant carved out pumpkins.
It’s basically like normal kayaking, andas with any race, the first person to get to a specific point wins.
You don’t win anything other than the shameof coming first in a totally pointless sport.
#9 Booty slappingIn the last video, I mentioned the Russian game of slaps where the point is to knockout your opponent by slapping them in the face.
This is usually contested by men, and thewomen must have felt little left out because they came up with their own version.
The object of this game is to slap the assof your opponent and try and get them to either quit, or fall over.
Players, take it in turns to do this and thelast one standing is the winner.
But when the athletes look like this … it’skinda easy to see past the total weirdness of it all.
In fact, let’s just watch it for a littlebit ….
okay moving on.
#10 Car Curling.
Russia makes two appearances in this video, and their second sport is this … car curling.
It’s played exactly the same as regularcurling, but instead of one person pushing a curling rock and others using brooms tosteer it – there’s several people pushing a car, and someone still actually in the damnthing using the steering wheel to change its direction.
The object of the game is the same, the carclosest to the centre of the house, wins.
Vodka consumption in vast quantity is highlyencouraged.
Seriously, there’s no rules against that.
Now, I know what you’re going to say … becauseyou’re all so freaking predictable.
Uuuuh you forgot about cheese rolling.
Dumbass, you didn’t mention cheese rolling.
Cheese rolling, cheese rolling, cheese rolling, cheese rolling, he he he, cheese rolling.
Firstly, I didn’t “forget” because cheeserolling is NOT a sport.
For those of you that doesn’t know whatit is, once a year on a hill in Gloucestershire, people gather at the top and wait for a roundelof cheese to be rolled down the hill.
The first person to run down to the bottomhill and grab the cheese, wins the block of cheese.
This usually results in people falling overand breaking various bones and ligaments trying to win something that you can easily buy atyour local supermarket.
It’s NOT a sport, because this is not contestedregularly, hence the once a year thing.
And also, there are no apparent rules, soyou could punch that fat bitch who’s also trying to win that block of mouldy cheese.
I repeat, NOT a sport.
