Real Things That Exist: Tag Championships

May 4, 2017

This is a video of some evasion highlights from the World Tag Championship, the extreme sport of adults playing tag. Basically, competitors take turns chasing each other around an adult version of a jungle gym for twenty seconds at a time. It looks like previous parkour experience would be a plus. It looks like previous debilitating hip and leg injuries would be a minus. Me? I have weak ankles from constantly rolling them my whole life, so this probably isn't for me. That, and, you know, running for my life is something I only like to do when I'm ACTUALLY running for my life -- usually from an angry, pitchfork-carrying mob. "What did you do this time?" They're saying I cursed their village! "Why?" Because I cursed their village.

Keep going for the exhilarating video, as well as a promo for this year's championship.

Thanks to Carmen, who agrees way more of those obstacles should be on fire.

    Nice. This opens the door for my dream of becoming a professional Mother May I champion.

  • Jenness

    1) This looks like SO MUCH FUN!!!!
    2) I would get caught laughing my ass off w/in the first 2 minutes because I can't run being chased without giggling like a lunatic and screeching then laughing because I'm worse than Phoebe at running -->

    This would be cool if the course were a bit bigger and there were traps that could be sprung. Maybe all suspended over a lake of fire.

  • Draco Basileus

    I wanted the Mortal Kombat MC to scream "EVASION" when it flashed on the screen. That would have made this seem slightly less lame.

    NOT IT!

  • Meh

    In reality i would totally suck at this, but in my mind, that field is fantastic.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    are there outtakes of these dinguses smacking their heads on the bars?

  • WhiteEagle2

    That would be more interesting. Same applies for Nascar (outakes of the wrecks).

    *clears throat and puts on monacle*
    Actually, good sir, the plural of "dingus" is "dingui", (pronounced "DING-guy")

    You can trust me, I'm a licensed Dingologist.

  • Bling Nye

    Pronunciation is right, but it's spelled "dingi" since you drop the '-us' with the pluralization using '-i'...

    I'm more of a cunning linguist, but I dabble in Dingology.
