How Metal Is This: Man Makes Whip Out of Heavy Chains

Metalheads love using “metal” as an adjective. When something is violent, dramatic, extreme, or just straight-up insane, it earns itself the designation of “metal.” But it’s worth noting that some things are just more metal than others — like, for instance, this shirtless dude who made a whip out of heavy chains and uses it to destroy bottles.

Obviously, a dude wheeling around with a huge chain is pretty metal from the get-go; kids who grew up in the ’80s and early ’90s watched at least one cartoon where the bad guy whips a chain around as his weapon of choice. But to see a dude who actually made a functional bullwhip using a heavy chain is pretty goddamn impressive. Of course, the fact that he’s a shirtless Kerry King-looking-ass motherfucker certainly elevates this to a new level of metal.

Watch this modern-day berserker go apeshit on an innocent bottle below:

While the chain-whip is pretty outstanding, we’re not sure it beats the bicycle with sawblades for wheels that we wrote about back in February. As you’ll see in the video below, riding across the ice on this saw bike isn’t just about finding two huge circular saw blades and replacing your bike wheels with them. A solid amount of engineering and hard work goes into the process — and, as you’ll find out, the straight-up saw blades don’t work the first time. That said, it’s not about the destination so much as the journey, and the chance for your neighbors to see you come walking out of your house with two huge saw blades like you’re getting read to be the villain in a Herschell Gordon Lewis movie.

Check out the saw-blade bicycle below, and let us know on Twitter or Facebook which is more metal: the saw-bike or the chain-whip. There’s no prize or reward, we just want to know what you think.
