Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
Don't act like you didn't watch this show. You loved it and watched it religiously. Sure, it probably scarred you emotionally to see all those bodybuilders in leotards, but the emotional scarring didn't matter because "American Gladiators" was that awesome.
Think it wasn't dangerous, with all those pads and helmets? Consider the fact that it was originally hosted by Joe Theismann. That's a bad sign. If your host is an expert on career-ending injuries, prepare for some pain. Prepare to see the bone.
Here are the legendary "American Gladiators" events that truly brought the ruckus.
1. The Human Cannonball
It should be called the Human Wrecking Ball, because you swing toward the gladiator and try to demolish his brick-s***house of a body. Unfortunately, the Human Cannonball was banned in Season 5, and for good reason. Just ask Malibu in the video above, who required stitches for an eyebrow gash.
HBO isn't developing a cartoon version of the "Song of Ice and Fire" series, which would be the most demented animation this side of Japanese tentacle porn. But we wish they'd make such a series, based on these hundreds of illustrations by a "Game of Thrones" superfan in Macedonia.
He drew every single character from the books, human and otherwise. And they look awesome. Seriously, if HBO won't move on this, can somebody please call Pixar?
"Game of Thrones" geeks like Jon Gabrus have been eagerly anticipating last night's episode. Brienne of Tarth has to battle a grizzly bear with a wooden sword while wearing clothing that's completely foreign to her, a pink dress. Truthfully, Gabrus wasn't as excited for the fight as much as he was for more Brienne. He just can't help but be attracted to that bear of a woman.
The photo above is a great hint towards this week's Most Guy Code Moment. No, Gabrus doesn't award the bear the honor. Watch the video below for the full explanation. Plus, Gabrus even gives us the bonus of naming the Least Guy Code Moment as well.
It's Friday, which means Andrew Schulz is here to fill you in on the week's biggest pop-culture stories for MTV2's "What's Good." You already saw Mark Wahlberg and The Rock in "Pain & Gain," and now they're teaming up again for an HBO show about retired athletes in Miami. Plus, Kanye West has something big happening on June 18 but nobody knows what. (A kid? A new single? A new kilt?) Lastly, Schulz gives you a tribute to Macklemore, a guy you might've heard of. Before you have a good weekend, find out "What's Good" below!
"Game of Thrones" geeks and perverts alike were intrigued by last week's episode. Jon Snow and his sexy Wildling redhead, Ygritte, found the only warm water north of The Wall and took a very sexy bath. In the process, Snow broke his Night's Watch vows and established himself as a man who really enjoys "eating lunch." Why are we discussing about last week when we're supposed to be talking about this week's Most Guy Code Moment? Well, watch a tank-top-clad Jon Gabrus in the video below and he'll explain.
One of our favorite additions to "Guy Code" in season three was Dan Soder, who delivered painfully gut-busting laughs. Comedy Central took notice, and now he's performing on "The Half Hour" tonight at 12/11C. As the name implies, it's thirty minutes of standup comedy...and judging by this preview clip, it's gonna be hilarious:
We caught up with Dan to ask about other topics he'll tackle on "The Half Hour," how he felt appearing on Conan and why some comedians are funny on stage but suck at Twitter.
Aside from hipster-bashing, what can we expect tonight?
There are definitely some "Guy Code"-related subjects like drinking, dating, a lot of that kind of stuff.
What have you been up to since season three ended?
I got a haircut, bought a sandwich with the money they gave me and have been taking a lot of naps. So basically, I've been like a lazy Forrest Gump.
How is it that moms can give birth to you, raise you and help you through any difficult situation...yet still have no idea how embarrassing they can be?
With Mother's Day coming up, we thought we'd check in with the mother of "Jersey Shore" star Vinny Guadagnino, to get some tips on dealing with cringe-worthy mom moments. Since his mom is also his costar in his new show "The Show With Vinny," premiering tonight at 10/9c on MTV, he's got plenty of experience with mom-based humiliation.
Read on for the tips and a few sneak peeks from Vinny's new series.
1. Showing Baby Pictures
This is the classic mom move. She just can't get enough of how adorable you were as a baby, so she offers a peek to anyone who walks through the front door. One or two pics are harmless, but try to stop her before she breaks out the potty training shots. No one needs to see that. Read More...
Angus T. Jones, the kid from "Two And A Half Men," isn't returning for the 11th season because of religious reasons...and a rant in which he encouraged people not to watch the "filth on CBS." The show must go on, though, so let's help CBS cast a replacement.
Looking to replace a wisecracking young man who used to be an adorable child star? Macaulay Culkin's phone should be ringing off the hook! Plus, Culkin and Kutcher with a guest cameo from Mila Kunis would be a ratings bonanza.
3. Jason Alexander
Yeah, he's a little old for the part, but George Costanza was America's original "half man" to Jerry and Kramer. Jason Alexander is the premiere short stature, short-fused sidekick...and if there's one thing he knows, it's how to get laughs from living with his parents.
Duane "Dog" Chapman has led a hardcore life. He's been in and out of jail--including a Mexican prison, which (in case you hadn't heard) isn't too cushy--and as a bail enforcement agent, he's brought countless fugitives to justice. His new series, "Dog And Beth: On The Hunt," premieres Saturday at 5 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
Recently, MTV News asked Dog for his version of Guy Code, which comes down to this: "Everybody has broken the law," but "there are people who deserve to be in hell." Watch the rest of his badass answer below:
Even if you don't watch "Mad Men," which just came back for its sixth season, you have to admire the miracle of physics that is Christina Hendricks. Her body never ceases to amaze, yet you get the feeling that she could (literally and figuratively) tear out your heart...which somehow makes her even hotter, as you can see from Unreality's gallery of her 15 finest photos. Like this one from the, uh, Golden Globes:
