Video links: Nutball mania (9)

It looks like the wonderful sport of nutball is having another moment in the spotlight. Plucked from obscurity by Johnny Knoxville and his buddies in a season 3 episode of Jackass in 2001, Nutball has garnered fans around the globe.

Here are some more videos of people playing nutball.

Maybe the surge in popularity is due to the fact that a game of "face ball" on the UK edition of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! quickly goes south. There are some great nutshots in the clip, and I love the fact that everybody has a great time watching. Nutball is a spectator sport!

Inspired by that, the hosts of the show, comedy duo Ant & Dec have a little reprise in the tree house.

In the world of Achievement Hunter, nutball has different names like "junk ball" or "flinchless moony doo", and after a brief but glorious clip in 2014 they returned to this wonderful sport in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Here is the original clip from 2014 (I'm pretty sure I have featured it on this site previously, but I don't now for sure...).

And here is the 2018 clip with nutshots at 0:55, 3:25 and 6:00.

In 2019 they played it with a twist: nutball in the dark! "Stealth ball" had nutshots at 1:35, 2:30, 4:18.

And here is the 2020 clip with some great nutshots throughout the video:

Bonus clip: Not many nutshots - but everybody keeps trying to hit the balls.

Here is a short but sweet tiktok video (this is the source of the screenshort at the top of the post).

Here's another short video. I love the quirky music!

Finally, here is the hugely (and I mean HUGELY) popular clip by youtube stars Unus Annus. Att the time of this writing it had more than 2.5 million views. Wow!
