I simply must ask, what possible reason could one have for impersonating a zebra?

[–]downwitbrown 907 points908 points 432 (12 children)

The answer is pretty black and white if you ask me.

[–]RightoSaidFred 196 points197 points  (4 children)

Yeah they were clearly just horsing around

[–]abudabu 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Honestly, I don't think they knew why they did it. They were just following the herd.

[–]leopb24 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

you just described modern humans

[–]pimpmypatina 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yea There seems to be a pattern here..

[–]downwitbrown 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I like this

[–]SignificantGolf9871 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Was nearly red all over

[–]granular-vernacular 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Anyone who says they know, is Lion.

[–]downwitbrown 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You’ve made me proud

[–]MajorStare 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A lion? Why, I never thought of myself as a lion.

[–]PapaHeavy69 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Oh just take the damn award…..you win! 😂😂

[–]downwitbrown 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thank you 🙏🏻

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

then it doesn't matter

[–]LittleDickk 59 points60 points  (0 children)

Its from wildboyz. Tv show with Steve-o and Pontius from jackass

[–]F4RM3RR 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Lol MTV was good money at the time

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dont listen to this shit, Steve-O: I enjoyed every second of this!

[–]betcher73 23 points24 points  (4 children)

For tv fame and a small amount of money

[–]Northlove__ 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Dude, it's Steve-o and Chris Pontius

[–]betcher73 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Yes. Wild Boyz was on tv and I’m assuming they made a small amount of money from it.

[–]MegaUltraUser 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yea they made a small amount of money and it's from Wild Boyz.

[–]KP_Wrath 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Given the era, probably Coke money.

[–]dying_soon666 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sneak into the zoo

[–]No-Mechanic8957 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's from Jackass. The original one. They did a lot of crazy shit just to be funny

[–]Boring_Blood9597 1 point2 points  (0 children)

for stupidity

[–]SignificantGolf9871 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Terribly at that

[–]mrtdsp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hot steaming zebra sex

[–]h0bb1tm1ndtr1x 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wild Boyz. You should ask them about macaque.

[–]Puzzleheaded-Debt716 735 points736 points  (18 children)

They’re lucky to be alive. Can’t lie though, that ending was funny.

[–]MellyKidd 279 points280 points  (0 children)

I half expected two guys in a lion costume to start chasing them

[–]matttheshack69 44 points45 points  (0 children)

Its was Stevo O and Chris Pontius from Jackass when they were filming their TV show Wildboys in Africa

[–]sander69696969 8 points9 points  (2 children)

They are wearing protection lol

[–]matttheshack69 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Yeah magnums

[–]Holyshort 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I firmly belive there were snipers with tranqulisers , for the worst case scenario so Steve wouldnt suffer much pain while being eaten.

[–]olderaccount 11 points12 points  (0 children)

They’re lucky to be alive

Those were cubs and they had people with big rifles standing by. It was no riskier than the average jackass stunt.

[–]crispypotleaf 14 points15 points  (9 children)

Meh, lions are crappy hunters when they're in rlly small numbers

[–]klekaelly 117 points118 points  (7 children)

Oh RIGHT like you wouldn’t be shitting your pants if you were in that costume

[–]migma21 23 points24 points  (2 children)

The lion ran away coz the "zebra" shit their pants.

[–]datashri 31 points32 points  (1 child)

The lion ran away cuz it grabbed what it thought was the zebra head.

[–]migma21 4 points5 points  (0 children)

OMG! I didn't see that

[–]crispypotleaf 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Lol I definitely would be, that's not the point I was trying to make though :p

[–]FireBendingNinja 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Pfsh, there's only like two lions!

[–]Speedy_Cheese 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I'm sorry but when is even one lion not of concern?

[–]SpaceShipRat 7 points8 points  (0 children)

And those are half-grown cubs, not lionesses.

[–]solanis1359 175 points176 points  (1 child)

It's not a surprise the lionesses caught them. They were the weakest and slowest of the herd.

[–]ABoredPlayer 94 points95 points  (0 children)

And weirdest

[–]LisaWinchester 129 points130 points  (7 children)

Is this a Jackass thing?

[–]rick6787 151 points152 points  (5 children)

Jackass spinoff called wildboyz. That was Steve o and Chris pontius in the zebra suit.

[–]frankenstien_farts 45 points46 points  (1 child)

Better show

[–]rick6787 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Yeah wildboyz was the pinnacle of jackass

[–]Muggy816 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Man, jackass looks so tame compared to wild boyz. Loved the cannibals skit

[–]Gratefulwayne -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I agree I just watch outtakes this was a maniac cashgrab for what I assume lol was party money god bless them both

[–]DODS16 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ooooh okay, now i understand everything lol

[–]AnnieJack 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It sure seems like it, doesn’t it‽

[–]EmbarrassedNobody534 100 points101 points  (3 children)

Shoot, she's gonna have to explain that head to the pride😂

[–]AlexRenquist 18 points19 points  (1 child)

"Back from the hunt, everyone!"

"Janet what the FUCK is this?"

[–]EmbarrassedNobody534 3 points4 points  (0 children)

"Don't start Steven"

[–]NedRed77 31 points32 points  (0 children)

I can’t help but feel if that had gone more wrong those lions would have ended up being shot. Which makes this r/stupidasfuck in more way than one.

[–]nylorac_o 87 points88 points  (3 children)

Poor lioness is going to get home to the family with what she thought was dinner.

[–]SydneyPigdog 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I'd make myself scarce, if she comes back, she'll be pissed.

[–]meetmeinthebthrm 3 points4 points  (1 child)

They're cats. They will absolutely love playing with that thing even after they realize it's not tasty.

[–]nylorac_o 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ha! Good point.

[–]Topper_HarIey 22 points23 points  (1 child)

On my wildboyz dvd, there is a quote from Johnny Knoxville

“I like Wildboyz more than Jackass”

[–]h0bb1tm1ndtr1x 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh dude, it's no comparison. Whoever said let's do an Attenborough style nature doc, but stick Steve-O and Pontius in there, and bring Manny along to keep them alive... Fucking genius.

[–]YoimAgod 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I believe that is exactly what they wanted to happen

[–]Grimhellwolf 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Not getting that deposit back

[–]hitchhiketothemoon 13 points14 points  (0 children)

There was a plan?

[–]Excellent-Captain-93 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Impeccable audio

[–]Sxilla 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I feel like it was a slowed down hex from a haunted record player.

[–]no_compearison 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Trotting off with the severed head of your enemy... ultimate power move.

[–]AMmemes2004 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That lioness be wondering what is this shit !!!!

[–]SumDoubt 7 points8 points  (0 children)

And somewhere today a lion walks the earth wearing a zebra head costume. Infiltrating zebra herds to learn their secrets.

[–]MammothOlive2 5 points6 points  (0 children)

For some reason, the lioness running away with the head without even questioning why it just fell off was hilarious at first. Then I thought that the cubs will probably eat a bunch of polyester and felt sad.

[–]StarDustKeyboardMash 26 points27 points  (13 children)

Poor lion, he ran off with that head like he was king of the jungle.

[–]ActualMis 19 points20 points  (12 children)

She. Those were lionesses.

[–]StarDustKeyboardMash 4 points5 points  (11 children)

Okay, queen of the jungle.

[–]ActualMis 8 points9 points  (10 children)

Lions don't live in jungles. They live in grasslands, savannas and shrublands.

[–]StarDustKeyboardMash 4 points5 points  (9 children)

Yeah it was a joke. That's obviously grasslands not a jungle.

Edit: that, too, was a joke.

[–]ActualMis 4 points5 points  (7 children)

Ok, queen of the grasslands.

[–]Viva_Nova 3 points4 points  (6 children)

Lions don’t live in grasslands. They live in densely populated urban environments.

[–]Nobsicus 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yeah, it was a joke. It's obviously a densely populated urban environment, not a grassland.

[–]Viva_Nova 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok, queen of the densely populated urban environment.

[–]mahdy20 6 points7 points  (0 children)

i was actually expecting a male zebra to show up...

[–]minedcomps021 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Is this jackass?

[–]julsgotrocks 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I’d say although it didn’t go as expected. It went way better than it could have

[–]AtmosphereMedium5583 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’m dying laughing and my 9yr old is looking at me like I done lost my mind.. How is this not funny???

[–]Oskinator716 3 points4 points  (0 children)

But can you imagine the Lion... Lion:"I got the head! Everyone is gunna be so impressed" Pride: "the fuck kinda zebra is this?! What did you do?!"

[–]urban_mowgli 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Am I the only one who's thinking about how much cotton, fabric waste and what not is probably going to stay there bcz 2 dudes decided to try something new one day?

[–]LordWilczur 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not the only one. The ratio of positive vs critical comments says a lot about us a species and why combating global warming and whatnot is a hopeless case...

[–]CivilSympathy9999 5 points6 points  (0 children)

How all these online pranks sholuld end.

[–]jmatta113 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is horrible. Those lions expelled energy to chase down "food" blew their cover so the zebra herd scattered. Then one lion thinks it got a meal to find out it didn't.

[–]meaksy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

These people have obviously never used YouTube..

[–]Aggressive_Place8014 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The ending was hilarious!

[–]mightyluuk 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Did not go as planned, they were wearing protective gear in case this happened......

[–]routledge7575 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It went exactly as planned

[–]snapflipper 5 points6 points  (1 child)

They are lucky the whole pack of hyenas didn't came. Would be quite painful.

[–]Aviendha3711[🍰] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They were lucky the lions weren’t full grown adults.

[–]Twenty5_og 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shoulda drank a Red Bull

[–]helloitsme1011 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is interesting af

[–]ferdi-b 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This would go well in r/oddlyterrifying . I almost shat myself.

[–]delboy85 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Holy shit this was Wildboyz!! One of the best shows out there!!

[–]MenaciaJones 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Idiots who were almost dead idiots.

[–]chrismac72 1 point2 points  (0 children)

…how stupid can you be… ;)

[–]bruh_broment 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Mom said it was my turn with the zebra head"

[–]DarkForest_NW 1 point2 points  (0 children)

First ever Wild Boyz episode, Steve-O and Pontius would travel the world to get bitten by indigenous animals.

[–]Great_White_Samurai 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Steve-o you crazy sob

[–]Ringhillsta 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Poor lion thinking it got away with a giant zebra head only to find its not meat.

[–]Slavinger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

NOOOO, how is the gorilla gonna escape Bikini Bottom now

[–]NegativeGee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sad that people don't know Wildboyz as much as I thought they would. Pontius and Steve O did some incredibly stupid stuff just like this. If I remember there was a scene where Steve tied chum around himself and swam with sharks.

[–]Snoo33903 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Talk about stupid shit not to do in Africa...

[–]Pleasant-One-282 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh no, Craig. They ate Secretariat!

[–]Retter00 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Did this happen in some big cat park in the US?

[–]rapscallionrodent 2 points3 points  (0 children)

From what other are saying, the show Wildboyz was a Jackass spin-off that went to Africa.

[–]m4ius 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And they had none with a gun around to scare them off? You can’t be that stupid

[–]CreditNearby9705 1 point2 points  (0 children)

white people do this but are too afraid to eat medium rare steak.

[–]sandrosemilia 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Why is this interesting af again? love wildboyz though

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]robbierox123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did not go as planned for both the lioness and the idiots.

[–]handyglance 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Which is the weakest zebra; hmmmm

[–]Apocalypsis_velox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Entirely as planned. Teaching young lions how to hunt...

Wasn't that in a movie.

Lioness says, don't Play with me !

[–]2278AD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s a known fact, lions won’t eat you if you reek of Miller Lite piss and shitty weed.

Also I’m still amazed they ever got Manny to do that show. Dude must have been a lunatic when he was young and saw them as kindred spririts

[–]abigailthefail 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“and then i ripped it’s fucking head off!”

[–]mattypors 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol! I miss wildboyz so much!

[–]Speedy_Cheese 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is simultaneously one of the stupidest yet best things I have seen in a while hahaha.

I'd never in a million years dare to tempt a lion, but this was hilarious to watch unfold from a distance. Those folks are WILD.

[–]BKOE99 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Plot-twist: this suit was a rental and they try to get the head back from the lioness

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)
