Watch This Guy Break the ‘American Ninja Warrior’ Course (Video)

weatherman breaks american ninja warrior course

I’m going to be honest. I’d never heard of American Ninja Warrior before last week, when a very attractive five-foot, 100-pound gymnast named Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman ever to complete the show’s elaborate and extremely challenging obstacle course. But now I’m kind of addicted to it. I figured out where the hell the Esquire Channel is and everything.

I’m pleased to inform you, therefore, that today we have another awesome ANW highlight to show you. This time it stars a guy named Joe Marovsky, who apparently is a local TV weatherman somewhere.

And no, the headline you see above is not incorrect. I didn’t mean to say  “watch this guy break the American Ninja Warrior course RECORD. I meant watch him break the course, because that’s what he does—he literally broke the course.

Take a look:

While the Ninja Weatherman completes the course in less than half the time it took the Ninja Gymnast, ultimately it’s not as impressive because he had a much larger frame to work with, and athletic accomplishments are all relative. Still, to have that hangy pipe thing break and still make it through? It’s waaaaay better than I could do. So color me impressed.

Hat Tip – [For the Win]
