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.
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?"
This weekend, Pete Davidson experienced his first New York Comic Con and it freaked him out. He had never heard of "cosplay" and thought adults in costumes only happened on Halloween. Pete quickly warmed up to the concept of sexy girls in skimpy superhero outfits. After all, what heterosexual man wouldn't? As for the dudes, the obvious penis outlines under their spandex really disturbed him. However, he did find two guys he could truly respect. The first was a man dressed as Deadpool, who definitely didn't have the ideal body for the costume. He rocked it confidently anyway. The second was Zombie Banana. Pete loves his banana costume and could respect this dude's commitment to character. Enjoy his conversation with both of them below.
The guys at Project TriForce let Pete find which weapon best fit his banana character. Look how frightened that guy is in the first GIF.
The bruin that recently attacked New Brunswick man Gilles Cyr is probably regretting that decision. Despite the bear's "friggin' mouthful of teeth" and "friggin'...growls," Cyr grabbed its tongue, causing the animal to bite itself. (You know how much it sucks to accidentally bite your own tongue? Now imagine that you're a bear.)
Luckily, Cyr escaped with minor injuries to his stomach and knee. In the video below, he says that he was only scared "for a second," and compares bear-fighting to "an extreme sport." We're sure that he'd be the friggin' champion.
Before this weekend, young standup comedian and "Guy Code" cast-member Pete Davidson had never heard of "cosplay." He thought well-adjusted adults only wore superhero costumes on Halloween. Just imagine his surprise when he walked into the 2013 New York Comic Con and saw a sea of comic book characters, superheros, supervillains, anime animals and sexy women in skimpy fantasy costumes.
Feeling out of his element but determined to understand this phenomenon, Pete interviewed the best cosplay participants he could find. He mostly chose attractive women (99%) to speak with because the dudes really freaked him out. Check out the video below and you'll learn the best ways to meet cosplay girls, how they feel about being eye candy for geeks and why She-Hulk and Hulk can never date.
It can be incredibly hard to buy gifts for your dad, but this son nailed it.
This past Sunday, a YouTube user decided to surprise his father, a lifelong Cincinnati Bengals fan, who'd never been to Paul Brown Stadium because he lives in Connecticut. So, the son started off by presenting an official Bengals hat and jersey signed by Andy Dalton, followed by game and airline tickets to see the Bengals play the Jets in Ohio.
The dad fought through tears, and you'll possibly do the same. (It's OK, guys can and should get emotional over football.) You might never be able to repay your father for all he's done for you, but if you can make him this happy, you're doing something right.
Forgiven markets itself as "a natural, chemical free alcohol metabolizer." We don't completely understand what that means, but it has something to do with preventing hangovers. The idea is you carry this 5-Hour Energy-sized bottle of Forgiven with you out on the town. When you're finished getting drunk, you drink it (hopefully you're not so drunk that you forget) and you'll feel better-than-crappy the next morning.
The company sent us a box of this stuff. Through the years, we've been sold a bunch of snake oils posing as hangover cures and they've never helped. Still, we were willing to set our previous biases to the side and give Forgiven the proper Mansumer Reports test. For that we turned to the biggest group of drunks we know, standup comics. Ron Babcock, Barbara Gray, Adam Murray, Steve Benaquist, Dave Ross and Scott Boxenbaum agreed to record themselves getting drunk, then trying Forgiven and finally their thoughts on it the next morning. You may be surprised by the results.
Between "Guy Code," "Girl Code" and "Guy Court," Andrew Schulz is a busy guy, and he's about to get even busier...by helping people get busy. His new series, "The Hook Up," which premieres on Monday, is a dating show for the social media generation -- which means Schulz is scouring the Internet for contestants' most embarrassing photos and videos. (Just like in real life, the biggest c*ck blockers of all are Google results.) Watch below for more details from Schulz, plus the Code to online dating:
+ Watch "The Hook Up," premiering Monday, October 14th at 6/5c on MTV
Some dudes are free spirits who might seem a little "off," but that's just part of their oddball charm. They'll wear Hawaiian shirts to the office and eat cereal for every meal with a fork, but ladies love their quirkiness. However, that kinda behavior can also be the telltale sign of a straight-up lunatic -- y'know, the kind who thinks "American Psycho" is a romantic date movie. As "Guy Code" and "Girl Code" producer Brooke Van Poppelen recounts in the MTV Other video below, sometimes it can be difficult to tell the difference, especially 'cause "when you're single...you'll do anything in the name of hooking up."
