I’m not sure if this video is new or old, but based on the fact that Seagal seems to run through a crew of these guys every other weekend, I’m just gonna pretend like it’s new and that’s that. These videos never fail to crack me up so it doesn’t really matter.
Here’s what I want to know about them, however: what’s the protocol for becoming one of these dudes that takes dives of Seagal?
I’d love to do it, but I have no idea how one becomes trusted enough to be put in that spot. Like, if one of them just runs into the big man full force – just once – instead of turning towards him, limbs out, in slow motion, and then Mr-Perfect-bumping the second he lays a finger on them, the whole jig is up. So how does one become respected enough to be given the privilege? Do you think it’s like professional wrestling, where they go to fight choreography school and learn how to take dives the correct way, or do you think it’s an unspoken thing where everyone in the entire industry refuses to acknowledge that what they’re doing is the most ridiculous, hokey shit in the world, and talks Seagal up like he’s Kim Jung Un or something? I honestly can’t decide.
