What do you get when you combine policy brutality, a dose of ingenuity and volleyball? Ultimate Tazer Ball, but of course what else. We know, we know, it can’t be real, but apparently it is, at least accordingly to its founder Eric Prum.
Honestly, the game looks beyond silly and really not all that captivating. Instead of using a football or something closely related, Tazer Ball incorporates a beach ball (no joke) finished in a soccer ball like facade (why, we don’t know). But that’s just the beginning of the tom foolery. All 8 players – 4 vs 4 – carry a water downed tazer, though despite that it appears to deliver a healthy dose of pain – it apparently won’t induce seizures or cause long term damage like the ones the fuzz use.
The YouTube video already has 1 million views, but it’s YouTube, so as to whether or not the first tournament, which is set to take place this March in Bangkok, will actually happen, has yet to be seen. That said, there are apparently already four teams in the league: Philadelphia Killawatts, San Diego Spartans, LA Nightlight and Toronto Terror.
Real or fake, the idea is amusing.
