This bizarre video probably the funniest clip you’ll see today.
Simon Cowell’s reality TV ‘Got Talent’ series has landed in Sri Lanka, and one of the contestants has found a global audience after attempting to smash a brick over his head to win over the judges.
In the video, the 32-year-old Sudarshan Deshappriya aka Karate Kid can be seen doing the splits on a plank of wood as his accomplices step-up to help.
They then proceed to deliver brutal blows to both his arms — smashing bricks in half.
But the Sudarshan decided to take it one step further and grabs one of the roof tiles himself. Smashing it over his head, the man is instantly knocked unconscious and falls to the ground.
His fellow martial artists scramble to help him back up — but he appears to be out cold… After a few seconds pass, determined to complete the act, a concussed Deshappriya stumbled his way to the front of the stage and tried to smash his elbow through another set of tiles.
Watch the video:
One of the judges, award-winning actor Jackson Anthony, hit the buzzer and told the contestant to stop. He said:
“We respect your strength and we love that strength.”
“That’s why we stopped it.
“You are talented — a warrior — and this is enough to prove that.”

Anthony said to Deshappriya after his performance:
“We respect your strength and we love that strength, that’s why we stopped it. You are talented – a warrior – and this is enough to prove that.”
Despite concussing himself in one of the show’s most dangerous acts, Deshappriya made it through to the next round and was applauded by the judges for his determination and warrior spirit.
The video was uploaded on Saturday:
“We get ‘Sri Lanka’s got talent’ for the first time and this is what we have to show for it.”
