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.
From "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" to the morning show that our moms watched for decades, Regis Philbin is a broadcasting legend. Nobody is denying that. However, he might -- just might -- be a Guy Code violator, because he claims to root for the Yankees, the Pirates, the Dodgers and the Red Sox. To determine whether he's guilty of bandwagon-hopping, Damien Lemon and Chris Distefano -- in their finest "Guy Court" lawyer attire -- showed up on Fox Sports 1's "Crowd Goes Wild" to put Regis on trial.
"I'm not even a big sports fan," Damien said after presenting the damning evidence. "But until today I was a huge Regis fan!"
Watch the clip below to find out whether or not the audience voted to convict, and be sure to check out "Guy Court" when it premieres Wednesday, November 6th on MTV2.
What's the best Halloween costume you've ever rocked? After the 2008 Summer Olympics, my girlfriend and I dressed as Huo Liang and Lin Yue, the Chinese synchronized divers who won gold. That got a lot of looks. As a kid, I wanted to dress up like Mr. T one year. My mom rubbed charcoal on my skin to darken it ... let's just say it was a less politically correct era.
Dan Soder, Jon Gabrus, Chris Distefano and Damien Lemon took a break from shooting "Guy Code" season four to talk about their best and worst costumes of Halloweens past. Chris also reveals that girls have been tweeting him to say they're dressing up like his girlfriend, Carly Aquilino, this season. Ladies, if you do that, please tweet us the photos.
GoPro has come up with a great way to advertise its product: Give the camera to complete maniacs and let them do whatever they want with it, 'cause those videos make us want to film ourselves riding a bike out of a helicopter and then landing on a shark. Truth be told, we'd just film ourselves playing touch football with our friends (that should get a lot of views), because there's no way we can compete with these badasses...
1. Mountain Bike Flip Over Canyon
You'd think that riding along the edge of a cliff would be enough, but not for Kelly McGarry. You feel like you're going to fall off a mountain when he does the back flip.
Not so long ago, the dapper gents over at Esquire proclaimed, "A man over the age of 30 should not own a futon or a beanbag chair." Consider us guilty, but the truth is that -- in our awesomely materialistic society -- your possessions say a lot about you. Those superhero underwear might impress girls in college, but once you've graduated, it's time to invest in some classier stuff.
Fortunately, Buzzfeed compiled the items you'll need to purchase. That suit and tie might set you back a paycheck or two, but you just can't put a price on self-respect.
If you're like most guys, you wait until the last minute to figure out your Halloween costume. That means you still have no idea what you're going as this year. That's cool. You still have plenty of time to pull something awesome together -- because as you'll hear from Dan Soder in the below video, costumes can give you an advantage with certain girls.
Dan, Jon Gabrus, Chris Distefano and Damien Lemon took a break from shooting "Guy Code" season four to give men some tips about choosing a Halloween costume, whether group costumes are a good idea and if you should wear your costume to work.
Don't be that guy. Watch this video and learn the Code for Halloween costumes.
Do you pride yourself on not screaming at Halloween haunted houses? Any guy can impress his lady by not being fazed at the local haunted house sponsored by the Presbyterian church, but if you're a true iceman, you need to test your nerves against the best. For 23 years, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Orlando has been perfecting the skill of terrifying visitors. Just look at that dude above! You know he needed new underwear after that.
When you're dating an awesome girl or breaking up, you convince yourself that nobody in the history of the world has ever felt as strongly as you do. Yeah, buddy, sure. As the video below makes clear, every relationship you've had conforms to a certain script.
It's tough to realize you're a walking stereotype, but take some comfort in your bland, predictable, unremarkable normality. Kudos to the actors on not breaking character for five continuous minutes -- specifically, the characters of "you" and "all of your exes."
We have to hand it to the guys at Signal Snowboards -- not only can they write a trip to Oktoberfest off their taxes as a legitimate business expense, but they also brought some good ol' fashioned American ingenuity to the beloved German festival. Designing the world's first (we're assuming) "beer bong snowboard," they hit the taps and then hit the slopes. We wish we could jump inside this video to experience all the fun for ourselves, but we'll just have to wait 'til our mountain getaway this winter:
All in all, they raised $2,080 for charity (here's proof for skeptics), and they're donating another $100 for each 1,000 views the video receives; it's currently approaching a million. We salute these bosom benefactors, and we second this YouTube comment: "Seeing as men can get testicular cancer, could someone go around massaging our balls?"
