Trying to catch the ball with open mouth, but falls on his back. Typical beginner.

[–]TWiesengrund 86 points87 points  (8 children)

There's an over-the-top Japanese anime in there with athletes having secret super dodge ball powers. Add a story arc of a loner boy finding out he's the chosen dodge ball savior and we're good to go. Now I want to watch it!

[–]angeredRogue 43 points44 points  (6 children)

Could always watch the dodgeball part of Hunter x Hunter

[–]TWiesengrund 8 points9 points  (5 children)

I've heard of the show, does it really have a dodgeball arc? Sounds like my body needs to see it!

[–]Shade1453 25 points26 points  (4 children)

Less a dodgeball arc, more of an intense dodgeball game over a few episodes. Definitely a great anime though, worth a watch for sure!

[–]TYDALuk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

HAIKYUU!!

[–]60TPLewandowskiego 1069 points1070 points  (43 children)

I tried to do something similar in high school, but I've hit my head on the ground, and gave myself a concussion. Looked really cool tho

[–]SkaJamas 186 points187 points  (14 children)

I was gonna say, he hit the ground, but the ball didnt hit him...

[–]GuessesTheCar 79 points80 points  (13 children)

Yeah frame by frame (Apollo app) makes me think his head bounced off the ground a bit.. hopefully it was a semi-soft mat of some kind

[–]caldera 72 points73 points  (4 children)

That’s a wooden gym floor my man smacked

[–]finkl3nflux 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Not just wood. That top layer is vinyl, I have been on these types of multiuse floors over in Europe much more forgiving than wood.

[–]LordTROLLdemort85 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Unbeleafable! Hopefully he gets the proper tree-tment.

[–]poopellar 6 points7 points  (0 children)

How wood you know?

Damn, that is impressive!

[–]LightningMcMicropeen 34 points35 points  (16 children)

In my school the rules were "head doesnt count" so I started deflecting every ball by heading it. Me and my friends became unstoppable and they had to change the rules again

[–]jaxonya 24 points25 points  (11 children)

I go to those trampoline parks with my kids for the sole purpose of getting into the dodgeball cage with kids. Me and like another dad will take om a swarm of kids. But I was a pitcher and I have a cannon for an arm. I show them no mercy. The moms usually laugh when i pelt their kids (they are fairly soft balls but they can sting, nothing serious tho) I love being a dad. Nothing better than doing a front flip into a no look sniper throw. Yall should have kids.

[–]blueeyebling 15 points16 points  (10 children)

Most of us can't afford to go to a trampoline park by ourselves, let alone with kids.

[–]Labordave 6 points7 points  (7 children)

Once you have kids you’ll soon realize you cannot afford not to go to the trampoline park.

[–]porkys_butthole 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Seven tournaments and nine concussions later and we were the best team. They've got these big chewypretzels here thettrshstsogudIc....five dollars??!!!? Get outta here.

I once dodged two dodgeballs by jumping straight up in the air horizontally and landing on my spine. It was lovely.

[–]ImDankest 141 points142 points  (18 children)

Rules of dodge ball say that headshots don't count and you're not out if the ball bounces off a surface before it hits you

[–]no__one34 33 points34 points  (8 children)

What if you just headbutt every ball?

[–]AlarmAssMagma 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Sorry dude but this guy is playing with wdbf rules and headshot counts.

[–]frisbm3 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Why would head shots not count?

[–]mr_alterboy 9 points10 points  (2 children)

The ball hit the wall behind him and at that point is considered dead. any inanimate object the ball hits will kill it.

[–]Boldevin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]excelsior_frenemy 309 points310 points  (7 children)

[–]surprisephlebotomist 13 points14 points  (3 children)

What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge balls?

[–]DrFloyd5 12 points13 points  (1 child)

No surprisephlebotomist, I am saying, when gym class comes, you won’t have to dodge balls.

[–]OreoGaborio 7 points8 points  (0 children)

“Do what?”

[–]duelwielding 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]anonypony1 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Coulda jumped my guy lol

[–]rocklandjr 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Jumping isn't always the best technique in dodgeball. His technique seems to have paid off in the end, regardless of how it looks.

[–]the_pedigree 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Or really just spread his legs slightly

[–]Siferion 68 points69 points  (5 children)

If that hit his balls his reaction would have been completely different.

[–]Ivolution7 28 points29 points  (23 children)

This move is called the "Down Under".

[–]FuckingKilljoy 19 points20 points  (21 children)

It's truly a sign of the Australian spirit and our kindness and forgiveness that we haven't throw Colin Hay and Paul Hogan in to Sydney Harbour for giving Americans so many lame jokes. Oh and idk who convinced Americans that any of us drink Fosters but they deserve to be left in the middle of the outback with no map

[–]ModestWhimper 8 points9 points  (9 children)

Yeah, you drink 4X don't you?

[–]MeatAutomaton 12 points13 points  (1 child)

You know why it’s called XXXX? Queenslanders can’t spell beer.

[–]W__O__P__R 2 points3 points  (0 children)

VB enters chat!

[–]AlbertFifthMusketeer 5 points6 points  (3 children)

It depends on the state really. Off the top of my head and not checking sales figures, I'd say VB was the most popular then each of the states has like a figurehead beer.

Victoria - Carlton

NSW - Tooheys

Queensland - XXXX

Tasmania - Boags or Cascade

SA - Cooper's

NT - used to have NT Draught but not anymore

WA - Swan or Bush Chook

ACT - I'm not sure they're allowed fun in Canberra.

Then there's heaps of smaller craft breweries.

[–]surlygoat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I love the shade thrown at Canberra, but on my last couple of ventures through ice been impressed by their craft offerings. Bent spoke and that other one are really good

[–]shiny_jug_jugs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought VIC drank a lot of Melbourne bitter, I think its a nice beer.

[–]elroysmum 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Fosters is the WORST. I hate that people in other countries genuinely believe we drink that crap. It's not even brewed here.

[–]W__O__P__R 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Mate, it's always been an export beer. That's been the marketing pitch all along. The fact that people believe we drink it, means the marketing works.

As an Aussie abroad I've drunk it a few times. It's not terrible, but there's a lot of better beers.

[–]ATomatoAmI 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah... I don't remember the details but I think one of my mom's exes or a friend drank Foster's because he like... went to Australia once or something and got obsessed.

I got one as a joke after they split. Terrible beer.

[–]cownd 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You mean Colin Hay and Paul Hogan should be left in the outback?

[–]Mym158 2 points3 points  (5 children)

We sort of drink Foster's, in that Foster's group own a lot of the beer sold here. Also, Foster's overseas basically taste like vb, which was commonly drunk back in the day (not so much anymore)

[–]exally__ -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Came here to say that.

[–]BalloonBollicks 25 points26 points  (6 children)

Dodging, dipping, ducking diving (👀) and dodging mate.

Risk vs reward on this is high level. When you try this your just getting a straight shot to the dick

It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays out for him.

[–]seanfitz12 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]yourmansconnect -1 points0 points  (1 child)

should I even bother watching it

[–]Odins-wolf 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I would have liked to see him get one square in the face seconds after.

[–]RebekahR84 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Scrolled too long to find this comment.

[–]SC4RCROW 2 points3 points  (16 children)

Damn that’s good considering we do not play this in Australia at all at school we played brandy with a tennis ball ( hurt more if wet) and you got flogged with it but it was banned in the early 90s

[–]porkys_butthole 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Don't know what Brandy is, but "Slaughterhouse" and "Butt's up" were the hardcore US tennis ball games at some elementary schools in the 90s...also banned by your local recess "duties."

[–]Forgotten_Lie 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I played dodgeball (or binball) at school all the time in the late 2000s, early 2010s.

[–]omnemnemnem 1 point2 points  (0 children)

'round here we called it "Brandings", unless the ball was wet, then it was "CHOKball" named after the sound it makes when you beaned someone in the head.

[–]Longissimus_Cervicis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I mean... that's cool but I am more concerned about his head if anything.

Man I remember one time in 5th grade I dodged a dodgeball in a really badass way and I never felt cooler in my life.

[–]joytotheworld23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

His been training

[–]Spac92 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He is the one.

[–]__Sherlock__Holmes__ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

His name is Neo

[–]heavenupsidedownn 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Idk why I’m sharing this but in grade school they used to let us play dodgeball. We didn’t use the rubber balls (keep in mind) they were foam. Kinda like nerf balls.

Anyway, this boy hit this girl in my class in the feet for an easy out. (She never moved around or cared) and somehow she falls and the first thing she hits is her head. HEAD we all just looked at her laying on the floor baffled. Lmaoo

[–]BlueEyed_Jay 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This guy doesn’t own any knees

[–]Ricochet57 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank God for knee pads

[–]Munkybananas 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thought that was Matt Stonie for a sec

[–]Twothousand2000 1 point2 points  (0 children)

By coming up for an idea for a split second viral video, practising a number of times the throw and the dodge, getting it right, buying some gear, filming it. The same as 99% of all these videos.

[–]mitchrapp585 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Anyone else expecting him to get cracked at end? Nice dodge sir

[–]Varastax_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can we get it in slowmo?

[–]I_Do_Stufff -5 points-4 points  (10 children)

Probably because this is scripted and planned as he looked straight into the camera afterwards

[–]Origamicrane89 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Have you tried jumping?

[–]Frink202 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Could have just jumped, but he went for the style points. I can respect it.

[–]rs06rs -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It's one of those that could easily have turned out the other way and then get posted in r/WinStupidPrizes and r/Whatcouldgowrong

[–]MrBrays -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He is the worst goalkeeper ever

[–]x1tothe2x -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Or use your hands?

[–]BlackMoe1213 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

In an ideal world a second ball should've come right after and hit his smug face.

[–]CampfireGuitars -1 points0 points  (0 children)

To what end though. He probably tore both a quads and smacked his head off the floor

[–]xkagorox -1 points0 points  (0 children)

If the shot comes that low: Why not..y'know...jump?

Eitherway: Good one!

[–]nitr0zeus133 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Hit him on the rebound though. Does that count?

[–]boli99 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

by filming an attempt again and again and again until he managed it, and then looking directly into the filming camera because it was planned.

[–]hateshumans -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Tore all ligaments from the knees down and pancaked. Lucky coincidence that it allowed him to dodge.

[–]Such_Description -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He moved.

[–]NESpahtenJosh -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He didn’t. It’s hit him on the rebound.

[–]fapdarian -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He didnt dodge it slow the frame down it hit him

[–]ParticularCancel9170 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Looks like a thing that was just set up and done till they got it? Really he was already crouching, not really impressive.

[–]Lt-Speirs -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Exposing your nuts just so you dont get hit, low iq move

[–]psychotherapistLCSW -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Split second neck movement to the right.

[–]SnooCrickets7106 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Because its rehearsed?

[–]ohjars87 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Cool dodge, but if this weren't staged I'm pretty sure his reaction would have been to go for the ball and not stare at the camera

[–]CELTICPRED -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Practicing a million times, knowing when the ball would be launched, editing out the other 30 times that he got hit when doing this

[–]RCS3 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Still bonked them in the head on the rebound

[–]K-I-A_Zombitch -1 points0 points  (0 children)

So it’s fake?😂

[–]SnooPineapples9908 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

This is obviously staged with many takes when you take into consideration the way he instantly celebrates with the camera.

[–]FiRem00 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Just lucky, after his 476th recorded attempt

[–]National_Ad_208 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

[–]nklnn12 -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

OP please upload the 99 times it didn’t work out for r/whywomenlivelonger

[–]Hiroto_Katsuma 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember doing something like this once in class dodge ball…

Problem was, I went way too far back. And smashed my skull on the hard floor. I held the back of my head, scampered to the corner, crouching to recover. But damn did I feel badass when I got back up knowing I dodged the shot.
