Top 10 Weirdest Sports in the World – Part 2!

, , 100 Comments


Ninh explains the Top 10 Weirdest Sports in
the World … part 2. Wait, didn’t you already do one of these? I certainly did. It recently got over 1 million views and a
hell of a lot of comments – so thank you very much for watching and subscribing and
if you haven’t already do so, subscribe obviously, but here’s 10 more of the weirdest
sports in the world. #1 Calcio Storico
One of the oldest versions of football, it’s one part soccer, 90 parts beating the shit
out of each other. The idea of the game is the same, you have
to throw or kick the ball a net. But your opponents are allowed to punch, kick,
wrestle and beat the crap out of you, whether you’re holding the ball or not. If you want to find out more about this brutal
form of football, I actually made a video about it right here! #2 Hornussen
This rather strange looking game belongs to Switzerland and is sometimes known as ‘farmer’s
golf’. Players will swing this club/whip hybrid to
hit this puck, known as a ‘Hornus’. And surprise-surprise, the object of the game
is to smack the hornus as far as possible and for it to land on the ground. But there’s a catch. Members of the opposing team will be lined
up with these strange looking paddles, and if they manage to knock the hornus out of
the air, the player does not score. The team or player with the most hits or the
longest distance, wins. Yes, this is an actual thing. #3 Toe Wrestling
Do you like arm wrestling, but have the same size guns as Mo Farah? Well fear not because you can now do this
with your feet! Toe Wrestling, is pretty much exactly the
same as arm wrestling, you have to lock toes and try and lever your opponents’ foot over
to one side. Once their foot hits the deck, they lose and
you win. You also win a healthy dose of athlete’s
foot, fungal infections and some really unpleasant smells. Whhhy would you ever do this?! #4 Ferret Legging
Toes wrestling is an English sport developed in Staffordshire. Not to be outdone, Yorkshire have decided
to double down on the weirdness. The object of this game is to stuff a ferret
down your trousers, and try and keep them in your pants for as long as possible. The person who can keep them from escaping
the longest, wins. Ferrets can get pretty nasty, especially when
provoked or scared – so expect there to be some form of pain. I also forgot to mention one other thing:
you’re not allowed to wear any underwear. So …. ummm … anybody want to play? #5 Hobbyhorsing
It’s our friends from Finland again, and this time – they’ve come up with this. A popular sport amongst teenage girls, participants
must negotiate a showjumping style obstacle course, whilst holding a horses head on a
stick between their legs. The rules … it’s basically that. Judges will be on hand to time and judge the
performer on how well they completed the course. The person who scores highest, wins. Finland, you’re a unique country I’ll
give you that. #6 Buzkashi
Whilst were on the subject of animals, how about we play a game with the carcass of a
dead goat? Nobody ever said that, right? Wrong! In Persia, the sport of Buzkashi exists – and
the aim of it is to drag the carcass of a dead goat into a goal whilst on horseback. It’s contested between two teams of riders
… and throwing around a dead goat isn’t even the worst bit. Opposing players carry whips with their teeth,
and can whip you or your horse at any time to try and get the goat from you. You’d either have to be brave, or completely
crazy to play this sport. #7 The Redneck games
For some, the events of the Olympic games are just far too complicated. There’s a much simpler version played in
America called the ‘Redneck Games’ . These include the toilet seat horseshoe toss, seed
spitting, a wet t-shirt contest … and the most popular event of them all, the mud pit
belly flop. How do you win these events? I erm … I actually have no idea?! #8 Fierljeppen
If it’s Dutch, it’s probably going to be weird. And this also applies to their sports. Fierljeppen is basically pole vaulting, but
for distance. Players will try and vault as far across a
canal as they can, using an extremely long pole and climbing onto it whilst they’re
vaulting, They have three attempts at which to do it and the person who can jump for the
longest distance, wins. But Fierljeppen is pretty normal compared
to #9 Bo Taoshi
Two teams of 150 will try and pull down a pole that the other team is defending, whilst
trying to stop the opposing team from pulling down theirs. It seems like absolute carnage of people just
physically assaulting each other … and well that’s exactly what it is! If you want to find out more: check out my
other video here. #10 Ultimate Tazer Ball
Soccer, it’s too soft, I want more violence! Okay, how about American Football? More violence! Calcio Storico? MOAR motherfucker! Very well, I give you Ultimate Tazer Ball. The pinnacle of bravery and outright stupidity. It’s basically the same concept as soccer
– you have to carry or kick a ball into a goal. But your opponents will try and stop you … by
electrocuting the shit out of you. All players are armed with stun guns and to
stop the ball carrier, you can zap the bastard into submission. Once you’ve done this, and your opponent
has lost control of their bowels maybe – you can pick up the ball and run with it. However, watch out – as electrical retribution
awaits you. The team with the highest score at the end
of time, wins. You don’t get any extra points for killing
someone, but you do get bonus points if you make them piss themselves. Actually I made that last bit up – you don’t
get any points for that either. Honorable mention goes to the Russian sport
of … I actually don’t know what this is called. But as you can see from this video footage,
there are two competitors who take it in turns to slap each other in the face. The idea is to inflict as much pain on your
opponent as possible. If you flinch or move, you lose. If you get knocked out or quit, you lose. If you die …. ummm, yeah, you lose. Is there any more sports that I don’t know
about? Comment below and let’s enjoy the random
weirdness that exists in the world. Ninh Ly – www.ninh.co.uk – @NinhLyUK

    That buzkashi one made me remember the Argentine "juego de pato" where they initially used a living duck for a ball, later replaced for a dead one. Nowadays they use a ball with handles similarly to horseball.

    Awesome video as well, Ninh! Keep it up!

    Talking about weird sports, in the World Indigenous Games there this one called xikunahati, where you can only hit the ball with the head https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aONcKcSsfG8 Not the weirdest of all but surely unique.

    In Colombia, we have a sport called Tejo. You throw a 1 pound metal disc to hit paper triangles filled with explosives in a box with clay about 12 meters away. In the middle of the box, there's a metal ring with the triangles placed at the top, bottom, left and right of the ring. You get points if you pop the triangles and more points if your disc lands in the middle of the ring without hitting any of them. It's quite popular.

    In Indonesia we have a traditional game called "bola api" (fire ball). It's like soccer but you use the ball of fire. Yes FIRE!!

    I like that you even have regional flags for the origins of these obscure or otherwise bizarre sports (even the Dixie saltire used for the Southern United States; I was born in Arkansas, so I saw them a lot).

    Well there is Jugger. Similar to Quiddich it's originaly from some fantasy-movie, that itself wasn't worth to remeber the name. In fact its like Calcio Storico with six popes per team or armed Rugby with a cow's skull instead of a ball. And exactly like Quiddich the nerds who tried to convert this into real life lost the actual point. The skull is simply a Rugby ball and instead of wapons they use sticks wrapt in foam. In my opinion it's (like Quiddich) more like practiced nerd culture than sports, but it's definadly weird.

    In Guangxi, China, there is a sport called "Board-shoes Racing". 3 men should wear a pair of long wood slippers, and run as one. The fastest group is the winner. I used to play it during my senior high school period 🙂

    Big fan of your videos!

    Could you make a video on ringette? It's a Canadian sport on ice similar to hockey. The sport needs one more country to field an international side and they'll be granted test sport status in the Olympics, so any exposure internationally helps. Thanks!

    I should have mentioned that earlier, considering I praciced that sport myself a few years ago: Fischerstechen. A sport from southern Germany. Rules are quiet simpel: Two boats with 3 – 6 rowers an one poker holiding a long pole standing at the front or back of the boat. The objekt is to poke the oppenet into the water or make him lose his pole. It's often played just for fun between villages but there are also some traditonal annual turnaments. The most famous tournament takes place in the city of Ulm every spring. Here the pokers have to wear silly/traditional costumes and impersonat special roles like the yellow fool, Great Vesir or the King of Bavaria. You'll easily find some Videofootage on you tube and agree that it is definitly nuts.
