This special ops sniper challenge is the most ridiculous video you’ll see all day
Snipers are considered one of the most dangerous warfighters in the battlefield, taking out targets from concealed and undisclosed locations while homing in on prey that has no clue that they’re even in the crosshairs.
So who in their right mind would challenge a highly-trained sniper to a duel without having a weapon?
Answer: This freaking guy.
You may have seen Mike on the popular show “Outsmarted” currently on the BuzzFeed Blue channel on YouTube as he attempts to outsmart some of the toughest minds and computer software out there.
In the episode “I Tried Escaping A Special Operation Sniper,” Mike challenges a retired Marine Corps sniper, claiming that he can evade the devil dog’s crosshairs in a wide open space for 10 minutes.
If Mike wins, he’ll eat his favorite candy — Reese’s peanut cup. But if he loses the duel, he’ll be forced to eat wet cat food.
Let the games begin!
Step 1: Mike stands out in the open and strips down a layer of his clothing. Underneath, he is wearing a Zentai suit which he finishes putting on.
Step 2: A car pulls up next to Mike, and four other men with matching body types also wearing Zentai suits pop out. A decoy perhaps?
Step 3: Mike and his team ignite colored smoke grenades which confused the sh*t out of our trained sniper.
Step 4: The decoys dance in a circle, bringing the sniper in for a closer look.
Step 5: After showing off their incredible dance skills, the decoys pair off and hide under blankets.
Step 5: Time is up! The sniper shoots one of the decoys in the a**.
Step 6: The winner is! Mike.
Step 7: Claim your prize.
