Tired of hunting animals? This video is made entirely worth watching simply because of the ridiculous sound made three-quarters of the way through.

Care to elaborate? The video started and then stopped and never started again.

It's a dynamite sound, but I gotta have more cowbell.

Wow that was so funny. I love the part when the laser sight was going up her chest toward her neck and the voiceover guys says "Now we're talking!", in my brain I added "Shoot her in the neck, now we're talking!"

There are middle-aged businessmen who would expense something like this.

And there are young men who would expense it if they could.

Is this related to this urban legend ?[discussed previously here]

Bah, internet hunting with live ammo is so 2004, what makes you think I'd want to do it with paint instead?

2005?

Paintballs hurt like hell. And at least give the girl some goggles. Owee!

Looks like the same woman from huntingforbambi.com, which was a las vegas hoax, merely trying to sell cheesy videos.

Maybe they hooked up cheesy videos with some software to fool people into thinking they're shooting.

I guess, in my mind, they only nailed her once and they missed all the obvious targets...

I'm actually partial to tranquilizer darts....

Paintballs do, indeed, hurt like hell. But that's part of the fun really. You get shot, you want to shoot someone else back, preferably the asshole with his gun pressure cranked way the hell up so his paintballs hurt even more.

Our initial plan is that you will get 25 shots with each paintball session. If you want to further customize your paintball experience, you may add / reload more ammo, before or during your session. Add more ammo to unload and rapid-fire at the live human target!

So CynicalKnight's video would've cost $168.00!

( It's a sad day for the sport when kids in the backyard have a better grasp of paintball safety standards than people claiming to run a paintball business. I love working in this industry.)

Great, so, in theory, I get to pay to fire paintballs at an unattractive woman covered in welts...

Ummmm...

woot.

Really.

Ack! The day after a posting about the Montreal attack.

That was awesome.

Um. Never shoot paintballs at someone without goggles. Never let someone without goggles on a paintball field. Never *think* very hard about paintball without goggles.

These rules are so burned into the game, which I haven't played in like decades, that this has to be a hoax, because the lady is running around and looking up at the robot gun without them. I suppose they could have staged the whole thing for the ad, and in the real version she'd have goggles, but I found it difficult to even watch for this reason.

Well.... that was horrible....
posted by Elpoca at 3:58 PM on December 7, 2005


I'm with you, freebird. I kept thinking, "Oh my god, they're gonna shoot her in the eye!"

And I've been shot in the neck before. I never really thought paintballs hurt much, not until that one hit. Ouch. (especially since I was in the middle of telling the teammates that followed me to stay down)

*Takes off goggles. Thinks. Thinks very hard about a paintball.*

OW GOD SHIT MY FUCKIN' EYE!!

(I've never been shot in the eyes, but it sure hurts like deepest, darkest hell in the ear. Ow. Ow. Ow.)


Also, that video was stupid. No it wasn't worth the noise. That was a stock needle scratch noise off of one of those lame-o sound effects discs. Never taunt me like that again or I'll appear at your window at three in the morning with a huge soundsystem and a rack of CDs full of truly indescribably horrible, terrible noises.

One of them which has been known to cause people to call the cops because they're certain someone or something is slowly and horribly dying.

Denny Crane shot a homeless man last night with a paintball gun. Why he was packing a paintball gun is beyond me.

Marc Lepine would be proud.

I believe the poster was referring to the sound closer to the end of the video.

Only slightly more lamentable than Coney Island's own "Shoot the Freak". Some flickr pics.

Ahh, Misogyny, how many guises you do wear.

That was pathetic and juvenile, and not FPP material. Please take this frat boy humor elsewhere.

Don't whine to me about the eyes! When we were kids there WERE no paintball guns, we had to use pellet guns and bb guns...and homemade rocket launchers.... then they sent us to 'Nam! ..... kids today are just sissies...

Well that's definately going to churn out some bitter disillusioned women.

Ok, I actually watched the video all the way through this time. That sound was pretty cool.

It reminds me of the limited edition box set of hippopotamus love serenades that I have that I traded a bootleg disc full of Grace Jones sex machine orgasms for. That's the nice thing about bootlegs. Copies. I'm pretty sure Grace Jones is Klingon, by the way.

And for the ladies..

"To let the women in on the same fun as "Hunting for Bambi", you will be able to hunt men online, in real-time, while they run around in just shorts or Speedos! Buck Live™ will let women have the same entertainment as the men in this fun themed scenario!"

See? It's not sexist at all. You can blat paintballs at either gender, or neither gender at all with the "Hunting for Mike" version.

" Hunting for Mike™
Everyone was probably sick and tired about hearing Michael Jackson Trial on the news. We'll here's your chance to "pop" the "King of Pop". Silence the "Gloved One" for good. Thought he was guilty? Impose your own brand of justice. Now you can be the judge and jury!"

Huh-huh! Huh-huh! Dey hit hur in the ass! Wid a paintball! An' she was, like, only wearing a bikini! Huh-huh! Huh-huh! That's so cool, man! Huntin' women! Imagine!

Fuck me, I'm glad I'm not American.

It would have been better if she cried, I hear girls like to do that.

hmmm...my first thought was, this smacks of the "sexualized violence against women" they always talk about in women's studies classes. My second thought was, there's an interesting sensual appeal here. I wouldn't mind being the hunter or the hunted (provided safety goggles were provided for the hunted). It has an interesting s + m appeal to it, doesn't it? There's a strange intamacy involved with chasing people through the woods.

Or is it just a sick male aggression thing? Would any ladies out there be interested in hunting a semi-nude hunk? (I'm asking this as an academic question; I swear i'm not being creepy)

Reminds me of the time a few friends and I went up against the asshole who thought it was a swell idea to keep his paintballs in an icechest at the field.

somehow someone on our team *accidentally* leaned on his paintball marker after the round, while he was in the john. Tough shooting those icy little red and silver marbles with an L shaped barrel...

You know what, Decani, I'm glad you're not an American too. That was pretty damned funny for being so stupid. Call it creative editing, it was good and stupid and funny.

I will not be satisfied until I a remote control trebuchet that I can wreak havoc on small towns with.

stenseng, you should have stolen all his paintballs and used them on him and no one else too. What an ass.

No, that happens when you start a comment up here...

That was good, anthill, and I'd like to know what the kid told the doctor when he went to the emergency room. I burnt my rectum with a bottle rocket, doc.

The bikini paint ball thing, eh. Boring.

No? After all these comments I thought this was going to be offensive or something. "Don't shoot your dog with the paintball gun, shoot the lady in the bikini." Meh.

Paintbal lessons with someone as experienced as me is easily worth, like, a couple of thousand dollars.
