Nice Throw: Guy With Spear Knocks Down Drone At Medieval Russian Battle Reenactment

May 13, 2016


Because there's nothing that takes you more out of a historical moment than a drone flying overhead, this is a video of a man from a medieval Russian battle reenactment knocking a drone out of the sky with his spear. Nice aim. I figured the spear was just a prop but clearly he knows how to use it. I probably would have speared one of the fair maidens standing around by accident. And then what? "Tell everyone she's playing dead from the battle reenactment and casually make your way back to your car." You're hired. I've got a situation.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to GT, who just wants to know if there are giant turkey legs at medieval Russian battle reenactments like there are at the Renaissance Faire.

    Because nothing says "I reject your modern ways with force" like the row of portajohns in the background. Hopefully he didn't thrust his spear into any of those. Awkward.

    I don't even care that you were filming a commercial under contract with the event sponsors. You slightly annoyed me. Therefore, I had everry right to hurl a spear through your $1900 drone. Now - be gone with ye!

    He would have been a fine soldier back in the day.

    The drone slayer. Drones are watching us everywhere, so sing along, kids:

    What an absolute prick. Then again, all medieval battle re-enactors are pricks.

  • The_Wretched

    It has been written that all drones must die. This one's time had come and who are you to go against fate?

  • Cheese

    Drones can go suck a bag of dicks but my point stands - all medieval battle re-enactors are pricks.

  • The_Wretched

    Keep in mind that the only safe drones who are not trying to look down your bodice are the grounded ones (those are trying to film up your skirt or kilt).

    Get good at hunting the drones now, it'll be much harder to take them out later once they evolve projectile avoidance.

    I for one welcome our new robot overlords... TO DIE!!!

    I agree and also think this needed more chest pounding, head thrown back in a battle yell as the crowd goes bezerker against the evil sky demon.

    Would have been cool if the last thing shown on camera was that dude finishing it off on the ground.

    Then trying to eat it. I'm sure that's what a true Medieval Russian would do.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Oh yeah... Because of the famine.
