I like when the dude puts the pad on the bar so he wouldn't bump his head during curls.

King of the dorks right there.

It's one of the more unusual gym videos out there. Is it real? I hope it is. If so, where do you think Iron Mike is today? Did he go onto head-butting the bar with even greater weights? Or is he in a psychiatric institute?

So many unresolved questions.

Also, I don't understand the thread title :)

I was expecting to see him knock himself out cold with a barbell curl...now that's something you could never boast about :D

Ah, right. If that one's crossed the pond yet, I've been unaware of it.

It's from a comedian named yakov smirnoff. He used wordplay to compare America to Russia.

"We have no gay people in Russia there are homosexuals but they are not allowed to be gay about it. The punishment is seven years locked in prison with other men. There is a three-year waiting list for that."

Here are some of his singature jokes;

In America, your job determines your marks.
In Soviet Russia, Marx determines your job!

In America, you assassinate presidents.
In Soviet Russia, presidents assassinate you!

In America, you throw parties.
In Soviet Russia, parties throw you!

In America, you watch Big Brother.
In Soviet Russia, Big Brother watches you!

I believe it is real. At some point another gym member places a pad on the bar for Iron Mike and appears to be annoyed with him.

Mike does seem a little crazy, perhaps the product of drugs. Who knows...

Since he was not moving the bar much, I thought it was more appropriate to claim that the bar was moving him...thus the Soviet meme reference.

To be fair, he does have the head of a mentalist.:march:
