I don't understand what they are saying, but the look on his face was definitely definitive with "that really fu*#^%g hurt and I'm trying to act tough and pretend it doesn't" meanwhile his hands broken in five places: Coconuts - 1, Karate Guy - 0.

That guy was a fool.

How he even got on a TV show is amazing.

So there is hope for all of us..!

Mm.. the coconuts should be mounted somehow.. so they wouldn't bounce off when he misses.. Also this way most of the energy of his hand goes to move the coconut as it is freely rolling about on the girder, and not to its shell..

SO yeah.. rly unproffessional that.. i wonder if that was his first ever attempt to judo-chop a coconut :P

I´m Danish, so I get it :)

From 15 sek.:
She: One, two, tree, go!
She: Thomas (something), don’t you think you should take care of your hands?
She: I thing we stop this for now Thomas, it has been 15 seconds.

And then she says something about the rainy weather.

39 sek:
She: Is it very bad with your hand?
He: It is not that good.
She: Lets save the experiment to another day, otherwise you will totally smash your hand.

#8 LMAO thanks for the translation :D

all i can say about this vid is..... what a D.U.M.B.A.S.S. !!
I don't think he could split even 1 on a flat surface never mind a 4" piece of steel channel .

The face the guy made when the cameras stopped-------> :'(

i actually can't believe the number of times he tried again and again to hit them but just kept on smashing his hand against that huge metal rail. 0:18
His hand will need a lot of time off before it can go back to chopping sh!t up.

thats poor.

1. coconuts should be affixed first
2. what kind of basis are these two wooden boards there???
3. maybe he should hit the coconut in the middle, not the sides (which would be possible if the cocos were affixed) and worst of all he should not miss the coconut and hit the boards!!!!!!!!!!

@ #23
Just as an aside...

I have never seen the word 'affixed' used twice in a statement as short as yours.

Kudos to you :D

#25 - Ofcourse it was planned! Did you think he just happened to be out there breaking coconuts and suddenly a tv crew appeared to take the time?

It wasn't planned that he would fail so miserably though! Or maybe he wanted to show the world that a Danish just cannot break a coconut with his pastry hands

This probably wouldn't even have worked with a hammer. The bar on witch the nuts r placed is much to bendy and slippery. Maybe a bit of glue would have helped to to keep them in place.

I think one of the reasons why he couldn't smash a singel coconut, is becaucse it was raining.

Those ain't boards! That's a steel girder!!

By far one of the best clips i have seen latelly, i laughed so hard at it, specially when he hits the girder instead of the coconuts (several times) and moans at it. Great fun! :D
