Neg's Urban Sports

 - Apr 9, 2008
Bored? Downtown?  Neg’s Urban Sports are outlandish challenges where contestants disrupt social norms, pranking victims in score-able challenges. For example, how long can you ride a big stranger?  When you knock on a stranger’s door, how long can you keep them from closing the door?  Be crazy, and keep score.

Neg’s Urban Sports are actually part of a segment in ‘Balls of Steel’, a hilarious UK game show where participants try to outdo each other with outlandish pranks and stunts.  The games are hosted by Neg Dupree, a British comedian best known in the UK for this particular segment.

For example:

Burger Bowl Off (Main Video) - How many burgers can you throw at a contestant?  (This one is the most ridiculous.... But hopefully it got your attention).

Keep Em Out - How long can you keep people from entering an elevator or exiting a subway?  You’ll have to be ridiculously crazy to break the typical social patterns.

Knock and Don’t Run - Instead of running, the objective is to see how long you can keep someone from closing their door.  Be creative.

Big Stranger Rodeo - When you see a big stranger, jump on them like its a rodeo.  How long can you stay on?

Urban Sprinting - Take a security tag, escape a store, and see how far you can run while the security guard chases you.

Urban Skittles - Run into a shop and scream for people to get on the floor.  The more people that do, the more points you get.

Make em Move - Acting strangely, how quickly can you make people move or run away (no touching)!
