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.
Last week, a video of a girl setting herself on fire while twerking quickly racked up almost 10 million views. Before we posted it here, we debated whether it was staged -- it seemed a little too perfect -- but we figured, who would set herself ablaze just for online attention?
The answer: Hollywood stuntwoman Daphne Avalon. The whole thing was an elaborate ruse that Jimmy Kimmel orchestrated to see whether it'd go viral. This is probably the most successful mass-media prank since Orson Welles read "The War Of The Worlds" like a radio news broadcast in 1938 and made the public think aliens were invading earth. People weren't more naive in the past -- they just didn't have YouTube.
We'd be mad about getting punk'd, but every guy loves a brilliant prank, so we have to give Kimmel serious props. Watch the grand reveal below:
Although Batman is teaming up with Superman in the "Man Of Steel" sequel, in real life he's teaming up with Captain America to rescue household pets.
Ex-firefighter and Iraq veteran John Buckland (Batman) and his "Heroes 4 Hire" partner Troy Marcum (Captain America) were teaching kids about safety in Milton, West Virginia, when they saw a house on fire. They raced inside and saved a cat, then resuscitated it. The feline ungratefully hissed at Buckland, who didn't take it personally because "he just got resuscitated by Batman -- that's a pretty scary thing to wake up to."
It's pretty weird to hear Batman speak with a Southern accent, but Buckland has the skills and a badass suit. Maybe he could take the role away from Ben Affleck? OK, that's a long shot, but watch the video after the jump:
There are a lot of rules when you visit a strip club, from touching to tipping, and you've gotta follow 'em regardless of how many beers you've had. Here's another rule: Keep those beers down, 'cause you do NOT want to be like the guy in the below video from "Tosh.0." There aren't enough one-dollar bills in your wallet to make up for this Guy Code violation. Watch the clip, and then check out a whole playlist of Tosh's stripper fails.
Creeping on ladies isn't often an honorable activity, but apparently it can save lives.
Jamal Harris and Aaron Arias, ages 17 and 19, were driving through Dallas, Texas when they saw a "kind of attractive" 25-year-old woman in the backseat of another car. She noticed the two guys checking her out and mouthed the words "help me." They realized she'd been kidnapped, quickly called 911 and followed the car until police could intervene.
Although these two guys saved her, and even got a hug out of it, don't think you're doing hot girls a favor when you blatantly stare at them. But it's nice to know that, sometimes, being horny can make you a hero.
Twerking: It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. And that someone is YouTube user Caitlin Heller, who "tried making a sexy twerk video for my boyfriend" after lighting a bunch of candles. Much to her surprise, "things got a little too hot," specifically 2,000° F.
Playing poker comes with plenty of risks, and talking trash before the river is dealt can only add to the sting of losing all your chips. That's the lesson Carter Gill just learned at the World Series of Poker. He had a 93% chance to beat David Paredes with one card left, and he liked those odds enough to repeatedly taunt, "All you need is a queen." Paredes took that 3% chance, and left Gill making one of the saddest faces we've ever seen:
Losing is bad enough, but it's worse when you make yourself look like a fool, too. At least Gill has a sense of humor about it, and changed his Twitter bio to "Poker player, professional saddest-face-ever for hire...and soon to be B-level reality star." Here are a few other instances when we usually encounter the "I Just Got Beat" Face...
The shawarma-eating scene at the end of "The Avengers" massively boosted the Middle-Eastern dish's popularity here in America, and "Mortal Kombat" might do the same for Russia. The chef at this Eastern European kebab shop, which blasts the soundtrack from the 1995 video game adaptation, handles his knife like a katana-wielding ninja, acrobatically adding chicken and lettuce to your sandwich like Sub-Zero would. Needless to say, this video is way better than any of the "Mortal Kombat" movies...
They've already asked 100+ strangers for sex and stared at random people, and now the pranksters at Whatever are back with another great experiment to show the differences between men and women. This time, the goal is answering the timeless question: Are guys or ladies more inclined to participate in a ménage à trois?
The results are not shocking: Most people are too freaked out to agree, but guys do seem more willing -- even if they'd rather not hold hands with another dude in public. (Is hand-holding really more awkward than sex with two strangers?) Here's the video...
If breaking the law didn't carry any punishment, it'd be total chaos -- everybody stealing property, assaulting enemies and driving 190 mph in school zones. Similarly, the laws of manhood need enforcing, and that's why "Guy Court" (featuring the cast of "Guy Code") is coming to MTV2 in October. This ain't your mama's "Judge Judy" reruns.
Watch the sneak peek video below to see what's in store for Wednesdays this fall. In the meantime, catch Lil Duval tonight on "Wild 'N Out" followed by the season finale of "Ain't That America," starting at 11/10c on MTV2.
