That was super splashtacular.

Not that special

I hate to be a dick but that was not a true belly flop - his arms should have been away from his front when he landed but yet they were in front and it looks like it cushioned his fall

DimsyClubline

This guy is proof why people hate Americans.

me

doesnt matter how he fucking landed. 12 inches. i would have fucking died.

Doctorwormwood

You're a moron.. this is not proof of your retarded predujice. a moron like you is just stupid enough to think everyone else shares your views on the USA

thujone

i would say its proof as to why everyone hates all of the countries not involved in this super spectacle

skippy

Looks like the pool was on a foot of cushion as well. Why not right on the ground?

d

no shit there was a cushion...dude would've been broke otherwise...

/thats why ppl hate americans...they dont think

Koneko

If you hate Americans -- why are you using the net? Why are you using lightbulbs? Why are you using American inventions? We don't think, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. ;)

Realistic

Think about this, Americans had to bail out so many people in the past. Don't judge Americans by just one President.
See, this is why Americans have so much to offer-- we have balls.

Candidus

So where are the European belly floppers? (crickets.wav)

random

No offense...the anti american comments are ridiculous...but Americans didn't invent the internet. Google it. Just sayin'.

hahaha Americans

Americans didn't invent the light bulb either. It was invented by a Canadian that sold the patent.

Kneel Before Him

When Professor Splash blesses himself, he's actually asking God to make sure peoples' eyes don't melt when they watch that much awesome.

America invented Professor Splash. End of story.

Someguy

It is the SHALLOW DIVING world record - they just describe it as a belly flop. Therefore he doesn't need to do a belly flop - because he is diving. Get it?

Beelzeboob

All I got to say is WOW! We need more American's like Prof. Splash. A fine example of patriotism. God bless the professor.

Lulz

Lol why you guys have to make something out of everything. This guy just kicked ass, totally owning a friggin foot of water. Bravo.

Mr Wood

"This guy is proof why people hate Americans.

"

SO TERRORISTS WATCH THIS TYPE OF STUFF???


STAY OFF THE KOOLAID MAN!!!

aDrIaN

Vaya zumbado xDDD

scum

maybe people hate americans because they get into arguments about why people hate americans after they watch someone bellyflop

Preceeding Idiots

Not a "true" belly flop? He jumped 35 feet into 12" of water. Who the hell cares?

And also, if this is an example of why people hate Americans .. why was he on a Japanese show?

Fran

Uh.... Wha???

I have so many questions.

First, what was that dramatic turnaround after he finished "blessing" himself. Does he remind you of that Alec Baldwin skit on SNL where he tries to be dramatic?

Now, as for why anyone would wear a tux to watch someone jump into a kiddie pool... Yeah...

And while we're on the kiddie pool topic, why would anyone jump that high face first into an inflatable pool on CEMENT????

Darren Taylor

I AM PROFESSORSPLASH. I JUMP THIS WORLD RECORD FOR A PIECE OF PAPER. PRINTED ON THAT PAPER ARE THE WORDS "GUINNESS". THAT SAFETY MAT UNDER THE POOL IS A "GUINNESS REQUIREMENT"....... OR NO RECORD! I WILL JUMP AGAIN SOON. I HAVE NO RIVALS BECAUSE I LOVE THE HEIGHTS. YOU ARE NOT A HIGHDIVER IN TELL YOU ARE KNOCKED-OUT! TOKYO DID JUST THAT. HOW HIGH CAN I GO? WHO WANTS TO SEE THE AQUA-KNIEVEL IN ACTION. ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD AT THIS LEVEL...... FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE.
