This video sure was hilarious, but the story behind the video is actually pretty sad. Apparently in June 2016, a bunch of Aussies went on a boar hunting trip-up because it was the dying wish of one of their buddies, Kailem Barwick. After getting the footage, they sold it to a YouTube channel who published it six months later. Regrettably, Barwick had succumbed to his cancer that month — the poor guy died mere days before his final wish ran viral. His only solace is that he got to witness this in person.
As for the puncher, he was actually a freakin’ zookeeper. Not sure if they have to take some kind of oath upon employment, but I would imagine at least two of the ethics points involve not punching the animals in the goddamn face.
The Creator Of Prancercise Is Ridiculously Paranoid About The World Stealing Her Idea
It all started with Joanna Rohrback’s Youtube video. In it, she demonstrates how to Prancercise, a kind of equestrian-like jogging that is about to take the world by blizzard. It looked ridiculous. Blend in some cheesy boulder chords sprinkled with prominent camel toe and you’ve got a one-way ticket to viral town.
VIOLENCE IS NOW A WAY OF LIFE,
THE SLEDGE MY TOOL TO TORTURE,
Prancercise taking off became a blessing and a curse for Rohrback. While she spent the the better part of the last few decades trying to find success with Prancercise, she couldn’t assist but suppose the world was out to steal her brilliant idea.
In a write-up in the Miami New Times , Rohrback was of the view that the trademark symbol be used after every mention of Prancercise( legal disclaimer: just pretend they’re in this article too, I’m not doing that crap ). When a British Tv display came to township, she wouldn’t even explain her various prance motions on camera, which include gems such as “The Prancewalk, ” “The Prancegallop, ” and “The Prancetrot.” Because no one could possibly figure out the secret to galloping around like a horse with two transgress legs from the YouTube video.
Her friend told the paper that “[ Rohrback] was always worried about people stealing it … She had the keys to the Hilton Gym[ on Hallandale Boulevard] and only came in early and late.” Though, would find a 60 -year-old woman trot around like a lunatic even turn heads in Florida? When she decided to write a book, Rohrback hired a photographer on Craigslist( as you do ). During the session( in a public Dunkin’ Donuts ), she made him sign documentation “says hes” wouldn’t steal the idea. He signed it, despite feeling, in his words, “dumbfounded” at how strict she was being. But hey, when you’re a Craigslist photographer, a gig’s a gig. She even believed the bad reviews on Amazon were the work of jealous competitors, like Zumba and Jazzercise, as if they actually saw her as a threat.
This appears to all stem from the fact that she wasn’t quite in on the joke. For instance, John Mayer was such a fan he made her the starring of his music video for “Paper Doll.” After it was released she claimed she was “unhappy” with how it was edited, which is an amazing statement given that the entire video is her Prancercising for four uninterrupted minutes in one long cut. One day she was invited to magistrate a drunken Prancercise competition at a casino, which was only frustrating because no one had the balls to explain to her that the whole world just thought her dance was silly.
But alas, her paranoia stems even further back — decades back in fact, when she first had her “Eureka! ” moment and came up with the routine. This was a great, historic achievement that just needed 20 more years to ferment. But how would she keep all those leeches from taking her idea until then, pre-YouTube?
Why, you just file that shit in the Library Of Congress, apparently.
