Ok, all I got to say is watch this video. It get's worse. As you get into it, you may think, holy crap, it can't get any worse, but ohhhh it does. Keep watching.

To describe it, this is an Indian talent show, mixed with Jackass. It seems there has been no prep work or safety considerations and they are just winging it.

WOW

LOL I know. It seemed like it was so rushed that there was no thought about safety. It's like, just because you drive a car over someone and it is on a tv show, doesn't make it safe, I don't think anyone told these guys that.

But for a complete train wreck, I give it a 10.

Indian Paula Abdul was horrified.

If those were real fluorescent tubes they probably gave the judges and audience mercury poisoning.

Your right each bulb has a drop of Mercury in it as well as Florescent powder that is highly toxic. But that is the norm in a country that is as poor and backwards as India.

I guess their day job at the call centre for Bell telephone doesn't pay well enough so they try to win it on stupid TV show.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Made my day Ducke!




Yeah the light bulb stuff was really dumb. Even without mercury, the fiberglass particles were most likely breathed in by the audience as well.

The car part had be freaking out the most, looked like a fail.

I paused the video about four times trying to see if something wrong would really happen before watching, vid made me pretty uncomfortable lmao.
