It looks so painful, and yet it is so funny. I keep watching it. Over and over and over.
Oh holy jeebus. I can't imagine how much that hurt. Unreal. TAR, I love you. You have to finish. There are no outs. They don't call it The Amazing Race for nothing.
I was thinking the sour end of last season had put me out.But I am so back in.
I love how in real time you can't tell if it's the watermelon or the face that is dissolving into pink mist. Either way, wow.
that is not funny.
That is awesome in a way nothing has ever been awesome before.
"Right in the kisser!" TAR has always had some serendipitous moments caught on camera (or, at least, well-edited to appear so), but this is something else.
That's the Zapruder film of watermelon attacks. Back and to the left. Back and to the left.
Now that is one magic watermelon.
Barney's movie had heart, but Football In the Groin had a football in the groin.
Best line is when the partner goes "they don't call it the Amazing Race for nothing." At that point, I think I would turn to her and say "they don't call it the get smacked with a watermelon race!"
One frame just before it hits has the melon blurred over the course of about 2 feet (.6 m)' -- at 30 frame/second (or is internet video 24?) -- that's about 18 m/sec -- with a 2 kilogram melon; or about as much force as a 145 g baseball going 140 mph. Fortunately, it's a lot bigger, and it deforms and then explodes, distributing a lot of energy away from the face, but damn.
I had to come back here to share that I have watched this approximately 1000 times today. That may be an understatement.
