Vipers Academy A.K.A. Mall Ninja University.

Let me walk you through a couple of videos…

1) Shows how to stop someone within arms reach from shooting you

Good in theory, if you are dealing with some stationary halfwit slowpoke that isn’t really planning on taking your life.   Otherwise I don’t see how these would work.

2) Threat Management Center Training Tour

A real mall ninja playground.  They’re even training a mall ninjette! I’m still not entirely sure these aren’t parody videos… but moving on…

3) Flipping a gun on your attacker

More mall ninjettes at the beginning.   The dude at 0:42 looks like he wants to hit the instructor so bad when he keeps getting told his not doing it right LOL

4) Napolean Dynamite would be jealous of the mad skills displayed by these operators.   It’s just too bad they weren’t hitting some sweet jumps on their bikes while maintaining a shooting platform.  One of the best videos in the set for LOLz

If you watch the videos, it’s almost like the people in them are not “in on the joke”.   

Even their website has a real mall ninja special operator feel to it – HERE

They operate out of Detroit!  Coincidence that Robocop is from Detroit?

As always, make sure to save the vids, because the last little while I’ve had a good track record of embarrassing people/companies into removing their own vids and then none of you get to see them.

Bayonet, flashlight, laser, compass, saw, inspirational quote and much more:

Check out the whole article at the Art Of Manliness – HERE

I don’t know whether to save this for reference, or read it once more and laugh my ass off.

<– Art Of Manliness isn’t really known for trolling, but this pic perfectly sums it up.

The “Chariots of fire” soundtrack in the first half of the video is interesting:

  • 0:47 – Walking single file with your pistol pointing at the guy in front of you.   It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that isn’t a great idea.
  • 0:57 – The so called “safety circle” means you have to hold your gun like a limp wristed douchebag and scan your head around not really noticing anything.
  • 1:04 – Team safety circle.  For those times you’re surrounded and want to bunch up into an awkward non cohesive group.
  • 1:12 – Running while field stripping your glock?  Now there’s a skill you’re bound to need in a gunfight.
  • 1:40 – Replace that gun with a loaded airsoft gun and see how many times this “disarming expert” gets shot in the face
  • 2:43 – The “real world” disarming technique roll playing begins *eye roll*
  • 3:19 – Demonstration of how carrying the Glock with no round in the chamber is the way to go.   0.3 second draw time? sure why not.. fumble with your undershirt more bro.
  • 3:50 – The ever popular IWB Mexican carry

Thoughts on this training? :P

I’d have posts for weeks if I talked about all the videos on their YouTube channel;  Most of them are absolutely ridiculous.

I wonder how many times the client gets shot rather than protected?

Came across this:

Very detailed.  I wouldn’t want to mess with whatever the heck that is!

Qusay Hussein, dead son of Saddam Hussein busts some moves at an iraq rager:

Comparing against the criteria required to be a certified Middle East Hipster:

  • White high-top NewBalance kicks? √
  • White hammer pants? √
  • Tucked in white tee perfectly bloused? √
  • Studded black leather belt? √
  • Tightly manicured stache? √
  • Vintage Rayban Wayfarers? √
  • Denim stars & stripes jacket? √ (extra points for being especially ironic)

Yep he definitely covered all his bases.   With swag like that he could have got any girl in the room.

OH SNAP!!! Did he pull out the invisible rifle move at 0:57?!!!!

I felt like his friend in purple was trying to teach me how to dougie, Iraq style.  Mute the vid on the left at Youtube Doubler to see what I mean. Also, it appears he was wearing American Apparel before the brand was even invented… Way ahead of his time that one.

Sunset over Manhattan:

(Source)

Pretty neat how a pile of strategically placed shot-up garbage can cast a familiar looking shadow.

I’m disappointed that there is no artist provided “deep meaning”  behind this painting so i’ll make my own:

The urban silhouette cast by the shot up garbage represents the struggle man has with industrialism, only worsening with each rise of the morning sun.
