Sports That Are Better Than Soccer: World Face-Pulling Championship
In another installment for “Sports That Are Better Than Soccer” – trust me, there’s a lot out there; pretty much every incarnation of a contest in which two people competed against each other – we take you to the amazing and have-to-be-seen-to-be-believed World Face-Pulling Championships.
“What are the Face-Pulling Championships?”, you ask. Well, from the looks of it, it’s a bunch of old people contorting their faces in strange and somewhat disturbing ways while onlookers judge them and techno music plays. Or something like that.
Coilhouse has much better explanation of what’s going on:
In 1985 men and women from around the globe gathered in Mocrabeau, France to witness the nightmare fuel produced by human beings who can unhinge their toothless mandibles and swallow their faces. In the end, Herbert Kraft of West Germany was crowned the winner. Watching this clip, however, I’ve come to the conclusion that he stole it. The true winner should have been the unfortunate gentleman who appears at :20-:24 and whose demonic gyrations and twisted visage will haunt my dreams for months.
In any case, watch the video:
