You're gonna thank me for this one.

You probably (didn't) read my post on American Gladiators a few months ago, but this is an excellent follow-up to it (with much thanks to Mr. Chris, Esq.). In the previous post, there's a shot of Gladiator Malibu giving a sick arm pump after nailing some douchebag with the tennis ball cannon in The Assault. Thankfully, somebody with too much time managed to actually find a clip of Malibu being interviewed by one of the "floor reporters" after a nasty hit he took during the Human Cannonball. You will not be disappointed by this clip.

It's pretty obvious that his lines were written by the same stoned dudes who wrote the script for Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. And I'll note, dorkingly, that Malibu probably wouldn't come out from a day of "cosmic rays" with the deep beach tan he's prominently displaying to all the girls in the audience with hot pink tank tops and cut-off jean shorts.

And for all us mid->late 20-something males out there, you'll be "shitting the bed" with joy to hear that ESPN Classic purchased the rights to American Gladiators, and is currently showing it every weeknight at 7pm and weekends at 9am and 10am.

Back to my day off.

That's a great picture... very ambiguously gay.

i'm not sure "ambiguous" even begins to describe it ...

Not sure if you have seen this or not, but there is a Barbarian movie starring Malibu titled Time Barbarians - so horrible its funny kind of movie. Malibu ends up in "modern day" (early 90's) LA
