Actually, I really don't know why we love this kind of thing. I think it's part of the human condition. It's why we like watching videos of skateboarders getting plowed in the nuts and compound fractures.
We love watching celebrities get choked almost as much we love to see average people choked unconscious under any circumstance. If we could somehow find a video depicting a celebrity being choked unconscious, we'd get insane traffic (here at DSTRYR/SG). Throw in some involuntary bodily functions, and we'll be interweb billionaires (instead of interweb hundredaires). But, it's all about the love, right?
Watch Rashad bust a couple triangle variations on comedian and radio host, Jim Norton. God, this stuff is mildly entertaining.
