The Calm Before the Storm: I know we’ve all seen this one before, but I’d never seen this version of it. I always figured the victim, Lynn Chestnut, was attacked during a hunt. Wrong. Turns out he was actually trying to provoke an elk charge because he thought it’d make for a cool video clip to show his hunting buddies. And just how bad did he want to be charged? Bad enough that the doofus sprayed elk urine in his mouth as if it were a new flavor of Binaca.
Then the You-Know-What Hits the Fan: Well, Lynn didn’t get charged by an elk. But, as we all know, he did get the bejesus beat out of him by one angry buck. And during it all, his wife opts to stay away from the rumble in order to capture it all on tape. Now that’s true love.
The Check-Your-Underpants Factor: Now that I know Lynn was basically asking for what he got, I give this “Close Call” a 5. And if you ask me, the scariest part of this clip is Lynn’s poker-themed shirt.
