MORTAL KOMBAT!!!!!!!!

I think my sense of knowing what the fuck is going on was just dealt a fatality.
I'm assuming this isn't viral for a certain candy... (or a hostess pie) and I'm 1990-percent sure it's not LOLFATPEOPLE, but I am confused.

There is a video game? Is it an actual game, or an app-game?

Context, for people like me who are confused.

Man, that guy has some badass skills. I also love the face he makes when avoiding the bomb. I know that face well.

FUCK YOU CLASSIC MODE I WILL BEAT YOU ONE DAY

Ohhhhhhhhhhh *lightbulb*

I thought this was just an updated version of that fat guy slicing water bottles that was around a couple months back.

Yeah, I don't get the "LOL Fat!" vibe from this as much as I do the Chris Farley/Jack Black/John Belushi comedic angle - an ordinary-looking guy who's surprisingly charming and talented. I've been giggling about the bomb-dodging-face all morning.

This just makes me think about how much fun it must be to slice watermelons with a samurai sword. I wonder if it's too late to ask for one for Christmas. A samurai sword, not a watermelon.

I did not expect that to be so excellent. I would also like a ninja sword and a presumably fancy slo-mo camera please.

Honestly, I'm pretty damn overweight myself. So, yeah. Aside from that, it's a pretty cool video. Aside from that, and the thrown cat.

So, I'm in a weird place right now as a fat equestrian in that I agree with Ghidorah *and* fightorflight.

'That poor horse', not because the rider is fat. That poor horse because the rider is unbalanced and doing way more yanking on the horse's mouth in a long shanked bit than should *ever* be done with a shanked bit, much less a long one. The rider's heels couldn't possibly get any higher, and he's constantly losing his balance to one side or the other, which is extremely uncomfortable for a horse. You ride with heels down not because it looks pretty, but because it gives you a more stable base to balance on and thus ride your horse lightly. And watching him bounce in the saddle makes *my* back hurt.

'Really? We're doing this now?' because fuck fat shamers. People who are fat can ride horses and play sports and even *gasp* be healthy even though we're not aesthetically pleasant to society's eye. Let's not just assume that fat person on horse = abuse, and unless you know anything about how to gauge a horse's load-carrying ability, let's just comment on the fruit slashing and leave the 'hurr durr, he's fat and gross' out of it.

I did say I was pretty sure that wasn't the case.
Sorry if it sparked a derail.

[Yes, let's please drop the LOL Fat derail. Thanks. ]

Given the amount of damage done to the fruit, I was really concerned for the cat for a split second or so.

So - this makes me wonder why they haven't already released a fruit ninja for the wii. Or have they and I just wasn't paying attention.

This is good.

Cute, but I think it would have been more fun if they had kept the Fruit Ninja part a surprise, since the video took a relative while to build to it. The surprise could have done wonders for the video.

I'm glad to see Cold Steel has finally started marketing swords toward vegetarians.

I love this and I would so play a version of this on the wii if it existed.

Somebody should mention to jonmc that (despite the presence of the horse in the video) "Brostep" isn't dubstep for bronies. (That exists, but of course is called "dubtrot".)

symbioid, there is in fact a Kinect version of Fruit Ninja.
