Tricking celebrities into thinking they have been kidnapped by terrorists:

An English summary of the TV show:

Holy!!!! This is like American TV show Punk’d, but on a whole other level.   Although it’s funny to watch something like this happen to someone else, I can’t imagine it would be any fun to be involved in… especially with this show where the celebrity victim actually thinks they are going to die.

The show is called Ramez Desert Fox and is hosted by Egyptian Actor/Singer Ramez Galal.

Thoughts?

Ridiculous training videos have been a huge source of entertainment for me lately.

The danger and flamboyance in this particular video is startling. 0:57 to 1:19 seems like it would be better suited for an SNL skit.

It’s amazing no one shot the cameraman, or themselves.

What distinguishes groups like this one from a shooting club or re-enactment society is the prospect of actual bloodshed, which many Ohio Defense Force members see as real. Their unit seal depicts a man with a musket and tricorn hat, over the motto “Today’s Minutemen.” The symbol invites a question, Who are today’s redcoats?

Not without its bias and the usual errors …

M-16s cut down the perimeter guards. Once past the rear gate, the raiders fanned out and emptied clip after clip in a barrage of diversionary fire.

I guess that’s one way to entice kids to eat their vegetables.

The baby carrots website is pretty extreme too.

Getting kicked and pushed around to simulate actual conditions?

Also, that would be so irritating having someone fire blanks (I’m assuming they are blanks) off right near your head.

If you were actually getting treated that way in real life, I think it would be safe to say that it would be from the enemy (not your own guys), and you would be disarmed.

Anyone have more info on training like this?  Is it widely practiced?

Thanks to JP for the video!
