Across the Atlantic Ocean, something called “extreme ironing” exists. I can’t be the only one who hadn’t heard of this assholery. There’s an official website that calls extreme ironing, “the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt.” Translation? This is done by hipsters who grew up shopping at EMS. I’ve been sitting with this video in the drafts for weeks, not know what to do with it. Then I saw another stupid made-up sport: Kronum.
This is the newest version of Calvinball. It combines handball, basketball, soccer and rugby and it looks ridiculous. At least it has elements of sport. The voiceover guy sounds like he’s trying to do an impression of the host of Epic Meal Time, but he doesn’t understand that he’s not serious.
