I say it's fake. How can a person punch through a monitor like that? It just crumples when he hits it.

Also, turn down the volume if you watch it. There is a VERY loud part in the middle.

My vote - it's totally fake. Also HEED the volume warning. My cat in the den with me on the desk by the window jumped...causing my other cat ( who is outside waiting on window ledge to come in) to jump...and the cats were funnier than the video

Have you ever punched a thin LCD monitor in a fit of adrenaline/fight-or-flight rage? I'd say it's feasible.

Interesting. We have busted monitors in the back warehouse. I'm going to wager that decades of martial arts training, I can hit pretty hard and fast. A test may be in order.

You had better report back! Also, be careful not to cut your hand surprise

If you look closely, you'll realize that this is Bobby Moynihan from Saturday Night Live. It's fake.

It didn't work.

The monitor just falls over or gets flung away.

These monitors are light and the base doesn't hold them in place. If you look at the video, the base doesn't budge. That monitor has to be bolted down.

Well that's your problem. The glove absorbed the entire punch

Perhaps you should try a 1984 vintage CRT monitor if the mass is not enough to hold it in place. Please test and report your findings back here.*



*Don't try this at home
