Somebody Call An Ambulance: Reporter Demonstrates Stab-Proof Vest, It Proves Not Very Stab-Proof

January 9, 2016

This is a video of Israeli Channel 1 reporter Eitam Lachover demonstrating a new stab-proof vest developed by FMS Enterprises. The only problem is, it proves not very stab-proof and he has to go to the hospital and get stitches. And that is why you always let the company's president demonstrate the product. If you believe in the vest so much, let ME stab YOU. "Fine." Awesome, just a sec while I fetch my katana.

Avi Blum, the company's CEO, told CNN that because the material had not been sewn in place or otherwise anchored in the reporter's jacket, "it moved a little bit down" and the employee "stabbed him in the upper part, where there was no anti-stabbing material."

Aaaaaah, the material moved out of place because it wasn't sewn in. Likely story. Just admit it's really filled with beanbag beans so we can all move on. Or, I dunno, maybe make sure the material is sewn in place first so you're not stabbing reporters all willy-nilly? Basically this guy just got stabbed demonstrating a PROTOTYPE stab-proof jacket. Personally, I would have insisted they use a mannequin filled with ketchup.

Keep going for two videos, a short one of just the stabbing, and a longer one explaining everything that happened.

Thanks to Travis F, who I will let stab me in the hand with a pencil for a dollar.

    looks like only a section of that one was stab proof, since he asked if he missed, presumable the real thing would be stab proof all over

    "Aw shit, my bad. I used my anti-anti-knife-protector knife." Cuz if you're gonna equip people with anti-knife vests, may as well be the first one to one up it. Get the edge on the competition.

    The guy handled it pretty well: only a slight wince, maintained the smile.
