If Fruit Ninja is fun, then real-life Fruit Ninja must be, like, ten times as fun right? Not if you cut your finger off in the process.
If real-life Fruit Ninja sounds like an idea that you are ready to head to the backyard and try, you are definitely the kind of person who needs to to take a few minutes to watch this video. Lance Stewart, who has a successful YouTube channel, decided to take on the challenge of a game of real life Fruit Ninja, and that's a challenge that we can very confidently say that he lost, along with a finger.
Please be advised, there is strong language in the very graphic video below.
I think it's safe to say that I'm not the only person who is in physical pain while watching this video. While it is intensely violent and graphic, I'm glad that the camera was there to capture the whole thing.
What we don't see in the video are the sleepless nights, and the months to years of physical therapy that will follow this "brilliant idea" but, hopefully, this shocking scene alone will be enough to prevent some kids from trying this on their own.
