69 Thoughts We Had While Watching A T-Rex Take On 'American Ninja Warrior'
Can we please talk about American Ninja Warrior? If you're familiar, let's go down the pub sometime. If not, how does a mixture of Total Wipeout, Takeshi's Castle and any Jackie Chan movie you've ever seen sound? Like heaven? EXACTLY!
Well, how would you feel knowing that last night, American Ninja Warrior played host to an ancient contender. 65 million years old, in fact. Yep, last night they had a guy dressed up like a T-Rex run the gauntlet, and naturally we had some thoughts.
1. Wow, that is one good T-Rex costume!
2. Like seriously good!!
3. Like Jurassic Park good.
4. Maybe this is what they wore for the Raptors in the kitchen scene.
5. Though pretty sure that was CGI...
6. And also they were raptors...
7. Which are different to T-Rex’s APPARENTLY!?
8. They both got teeth so they’re basically the same.
9. Wait, Cretaceous Period!? WTF was a T-Rex doing in JURASSIC Park!?
10. That’s just bad writing guys...
11. Though I guess ‘Pan-Dinosaur History Park’ doesn’t quite roll off the tongue.
12. That suit must weigh a TONNE.
13. Or a ton?
14. Which one’s heavier?
15. Well, whatever, this T-Rex is the heaviest one.
16. OH SHIT IT’S SO AGILE!
18. FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!
19. YOU’RE ACTUALLY DOING IT YOU BEAUTIFUL BASTARD!?
20. DON’T LET YOUR TINY ARMS STAND IN YOUR WAY!
21. YOU ARE A HERO!
22. AND A PRINCE!
23. AND AN INSPIRATION!
24. Okayyyy you’re pretty slow, but you’re 65 million years old, I guess you’re allowed to be a bit sluggish.
25. Do dinosaurs drink coffee?
26. Is coffee paleo?
27. I am every single one of these kids...
28. We are all every single one of these kids...
29. These kids are our patronuses!
32. J.K. Rowling has a lot to figure out, huh?
33. Surely it’s not gonna jump?
34. IT JUMPED!
35. AND HELD ON!!
36. WITH ITS TINY, POINTLESS ARMS!!!
37. Dude must lift...
38. Why is everyone chanting ‘Dino! Dino! Dino!’?
39. That’d be like chanting ‘Human! Human! Human!’
40. Though I guess they shouldn’t chant ‘T-Rex! T-Rex! T-Rex!’ because that would be like chanting ‘White Girl! White Girl! White Girl!’
41. They really should have given it a name…
42. That wasn’t just it’s species.
43. FLY YOU BEAUTIFUL BASTARD!
44. I wish a T-Rex would give me a thumbs up.
45. Oh. My. God. T-Rex just fucking OWNED that block run!
46. What pronouns does T-Rex prefer?
47. We’ll go with ‘they’ for now.
48. Oh no.
49. Oh god.
50. Monkey bars.
51. Or whatever the hell they’re calling them in this joke of a show.
52. Okay, so they can lift, but can they swing?
53. Please lord, say they can swing…
54. The presenter definitely doesn’t know what a ‘mandible’ is.
55. OH SHIT THEY DID IT!
56. Come on T-Rex, you got this...
57. One more push...
58. ONE MORE!
59. WE’RE ALL ROOTING FOR YOU!!!!!!!
62. FFS T-REX!
63. GROW SOME ARMS FOR GOD SAKE!
64. Ah, well that’s my day ruined.
65. Thanks, T-Rex.
66. What!? A SECOND CHANCE!?
67. LET’S GO DINO BUDDY!
68. WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE YOUR BACK!
69. YES YES YES YES YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!
