Televised Death: History Channel's Full Metal Jousting

full-metal-jousting.jpg

This is a commercial for the History Channel's new series 'Full Metal Jousting', featuring the real-life jousting competition between 16 lunatics vying for a princess's hand in marriage. Kidding, there is no princess -- just 16 dudes and more than enough testosterone to turn a renaissance festival into a penis-swinging bloodbath. Truly a feast for the eyes! *clubs court jester with boar leg, pours mulled wine down chest*

Hit the jump for the potential for on-air deaths.

Thanks to Becca, who agrees the key to winning a jousting match is poisoning your opponent the night before.

    I'm totally for Team Ultraman.

    Loved this show.
    LARPing? Put the armor on and ride a horse, this isn't pretend, LARP is.

    My boggest problem, practice-horses aren't protected.  A lance is a lance, shattered lance means sharp edges exploding.
    Quickest way to turn horse lovers against this is to hurt a horse because of lax safety.
    If people wear armor for protection, horses should too.

    Iron Man 3? Anyone? No? Come on....COME ON!

    D:

    don't hurt them!

  • Yeah, someone's probably gonna die.

  • RareAwesomeman

    I would definitely give this a try if I could. And thanks to Knights Tale I know to never flinch, and to keep looking forward

  •  Me too, but then I took a lance to the knee.

    History must have dumped that douche from Knights of Mayhem and rebooted their jousting show?
