As soon as he showed the steel balls, I thought... "this is *not* going to end well".
Wonder where he was located (DE, US, CA, ?) Looked from the end scene that he was concussed. Surprised he wasn't taken to hospital (pretty sure he wasn't)
At least he didn't ruin a good shirt...lol.
Actually the second 'not for the squeamish' thing I saw today; someone actually posted a postmortem photo of the Vegas shooter 'on scene'. That itself didn't bother me, save for that it was disrespectful to the victims, IMO
Which? The slingshot guy, or the shooter?
(for the record, I didn't see either as 'fake'; I'll spare details, unless a 'shooter' thread gets started (and, personally, I hope it doesn't. Yes, I know I brought it up in the first place...))
( @Mooseman - I don't think the ball was actually lodged in his skull - strong possibility he'd have been killed, if that were the case, IMO. I really doubt he'd have been conscious immediately afterward.)
I'm going with fake. It's convenient how the camera pans away then just happens to fall with his head perfectly in frame. It also looks like while he is doing the monkey cam at the treetops (1:26) that it it pauses and resumes. That and him not applying pressure. It's natural to clap your hand over a wound, and he didn't. It's almost like he was letting that Halloween prosthetic flow. Entertaining but fake.
