German TV Host Wearing Homemade Hockey Pads Faces Full-Ice Body Check (Video)


Looking for the next great reality TV show? You may need to turn your eyes to Europe.

Two hosts from the German television show "neoPARADISE" planned to build their own hockey pads, according to Deadspin, and then see how they would hold up against a body check delivered from a charging player with a full head of steam.

Both hosts were planning on it, but only one ended up following through. According to a translation of the video's original home on, "the other broke down after seeing his colleague being picked up like a train on a school bus."

It's not a perfect translation, but the hit itself is fun to watch in any language. See the poor guy get lit up in the video below, starting at about the 4:15 mark.
