So, I guess this is a thing. Labeled “The future of sport” by creator Leif Kellenberger, Ultimate Tazer Ball “incorporates 20th century technolgy with team strategy in an action packed game.”
To throw or run a 24” ball into the opponent’s goal before getting “shocked” by an opponent. The rules are surprisingly intricate for a “sport” involving glorified beach balls and tazer guns.
Although UTB is about as ridiculous as SlamBall, I have to admit; it would be fun to watch a game, and maybe even take part in one myself. If Kellenberger is right, and this is the future of sport, I can’t wait to see what other outlandish things are in the pipeline.
PS: Someone wrote a comment about the video, saying the sport reminds them of something from Idiocracy, and while I didn’t see that at first I can completely understand the comparison now.
