Video: Rener Gracie Punks Everybody With the Old ‘Help Me Move This Grappling Dummy’ Prank

(Props: GracieAcademy via BloodyElbow)

In a way, it’s perfectly fitting that this video would come out the same day that Ryan Dunn died. Dunn was perhaps best known from that infamous scene in Jackass: The Movie in which he stuffed a toy car up his ass then went to the doctor complaining of a stomach ache. (Is it ironic that his tragic passing was car-related? I still don’t know what the word “ironic” means.)

Assuming there’s YouTube in the afterlife, I think Dunn would appreciate this prank. Instructional video star Rener Gracie dresses his associate Brian Ortega up as Bubba the Grappling Dummy, then films the reaction of people who are asked to retrieve him from Rener’s office at the Gracie Academy. Personally, my favorite reaction is the dude at 2:55 who gets his balls grabbed (“God damn you. You suck!”), and Grand Master Rorion at 5:07, who manages to keep control of the situation. Good times. RIP, Ryan.

Don't be disappointed, because it did the trick, despite whether or not everyone laughed. It was a cool concept and shows some "practice-what-you-preach" readiness. They handled it ok, generally speaking. The one Gracie is prepared for the unexpected, which goes to show, practice, practice, practice. Some day, you may need it and it will flow naturally.

Irony is smoking marijuana your whole life all the while touting the medical benefits of it, and then you get lung cancer because of the smoke. I think?

@Stinkfart - Well maybe I went over top top a little there... What I meant was: "In no way what so ever was Ryan Dunn responsible for the death of his buddy. Although he was intoxicated while speeding, no one could forsee that such an act would leed to such a trag..."
Naaw! I can't do this. I'm sticking to my original comment. Fuck him.

@Gorgzilla - Yeah, I'm sure he forced his buddy at gunpoint to take a ride. I'm not advocating drinking and driving, but choose your words better fucktard.

extremely thin link between someone dying and a kind of disappointing prank.

Always wondered how none of the Jackass dudes never got seriously injured doing their thang-thang. Accidents happen all the time and people get paralyzed, maimed or die even. And these guys deliberately performed crazy ass stunts without a ever suffering a casualty. Weird. RIP Dunn
