Here’s a Video of Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarvaev Being Terrible at Wrestling…Set to “America, F#@& Yeah”

When Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found hiding in a boat on Friday evening, the world let out a huge sigh of relief. After that, everyone’s attention turned to the 19-year-old suspect and the obvious but perplexing question: why?

Why did a 19-year-old college kid—an American citizen who has been in the USA longer than his native Chechnya, and a kid with pretty much everything going for him—decide to murder a bunch of innocent people?

Well, the prevalent theory seems to be that Dzhokhar was heavily influenced by his older brother—you know, the 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarvaev killed in the shootout in Watertown, Mass. Apparently he had trouble adjusting to life in America, so he must have been the one who had a bone to pick, and he must have “radicalized” his little brother, too.

But what if it’s not that. What if Dzhokhar was just pissed off because he was a crappy wrestler in high school? Sure, it’s a wild theory, but the first step in proving its legitimacy is proving Dzhokhar was a crappy wrestler.

This clip ought to solve that. It shows Dzhokhar Tsarnaev losing to some kid named Nate in a wrestling match…oh, and it’s set to the tune of “America, F*ck Yeah!” from the classic puppet film, Team America:

You can thank Deadspin for digging this beauty up. Interestingly, the author of their post and one of the people who commented seem to object to the use of “America, F*ck Yeah!” on the grounds that it isn’t appropriate since Dzhokar Tsarnaev is himself an American—as though the song would have been a perfectly sensible and levelheaded and not-at-all-racist choice were the terrorist a foreigner. In reality, the song is a working satire that mocks over-the-top American jingoism, so in my opinion it’s actually funnier when used for a guy who seems foreign but isn’t. Being misused kind of makes the song’s point.

But hey, lets not analyze it to death. Let’s just enjoy watching the murdering terrorist suck at wrestling.
