Popular UK YouTubers the Sidemen took part in a game of real-life Fall Guys — and it looked just as hectic and fun as you could imagine.

Fall Guys has absolutely taken off since it launched on PC and PS4 in August, with the fun minigames offering a unique and hilarious take on the battle royale genre that continues to be massively popular.

If there’s one thing that could make Fall Guys even more fun, though, it’s taking your friends out to try and emulate the game in real life.

That’s exactly what the Sidemen did, using obstacles from the game itself as well as their own ones to see who could win the crown when the controllers are put down.

The Sidemen have become wildly popular off the back of their original, viral videos.

In the video, uploaded on September 13, the Sidemen took to the world’s largest inflatable obstacle course, complete with Door Dash and Total Wipeout’s Jump Club — all while wearing some of the ridiculous outfits you can find in the actual Fall Guys game.

Obviously, a group of men in their mid-20’s, dressed as hotdogs and pineapples while maneuvering an obstacle course, can only go one way — and it’s hilarious.

Watching them try to stay on their feet while bouncing around strange barriers and climb over walls looks as absurd as it sounds, especially when a hotdog is trying to pull a parrot away from the finish line to try and catch up with a nearly-6-foot wolf.

Rather than have one overall winner, they opted to have winners for each segment of the course. Simon ‘Miniminter’ Minter won the first event, followed up by a Door Dash victory for Harry ‘Wroetoshaw’ Lewis, then Ethan ‘Behzinga’ Payne, Tobi ‘Tobjizzle’ Brown and another Miniminter win rounded out the day.

As one of the most successful YouTubers in the world, KSI will likely be disappointed by his performances, and Vikkstar will probably be looking forward to launching the game up on his PC again.

While it may not have played out quite in the way that Fall Guys traditionally does, you could argue that Miniminter was the overall winner here, making him arguably the best real life Fall Guys player on YouTube.

Joe Rogan made his Podcast desk wider because he was scared of Mike Tyson

Joe Rogan has revealed that he literally made his podcasting desk wider, because he wanted some extra room between himself and legendary boxer Mike Tyson, when the pair sat down for an interview in 2020.

Rogan has interviewed countless athletes and fighters on his podcast, and even has a dedicated series focused on MMA fighters specifically. But, when Mike Tyson was coming to town, Rogan wanted to take some extra precautions.

In his episode with Mark Normand, the pair got to discussing Tyson, prompting Rogan to divulge the truth about his wide desk, seen in all of his episodes.

It turns out, that the desk is particularly wide because of Tyson himself — who was “amped up” for a fight when he came in to be interviewed.

Mike Tyson rejoined Rogan on his JRE Podcast in September.

“[Mike Tyson] is the reason why this table is this wide. This table, I was going to make it more narrow, I even had a smaller table that we were working with as a guide,” Rogan explains.

“We were still doing the shows back in LA, while we were setting up this studio, I did an interview with Tyson, and he was so amped up for this Roy Jones fight, that I got nervous being in the room.

“I’m like, ‘I like that extra six inches of space between us, because he was so ramped up. When he left, Jamie goes ‘that’s a totally different person,’ because he went from being, ‘Mike Tyson, pot grower, not working out at all’, to getting ready to go to combat again.”

Tyson has actually appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast twice, once in January 2019, and then again in September 2020.

In the 2019 episode, Tyson likely had no plans of returning to the ring again, but did so in November 2020, as he took on former four-division champ Roy Jones Jr.

The fight resulted in a draw, with two judges picking a different winner, and the final judge matching them evenly on the scorecard. Even at ages 54 and 51 respectively, Tyson and Jones fought a full eight rounds.

Mike Tyson also appeared on Logan Paul’s podcast, where he explained that YouTube boxing fights are one of the biggest boosts to the sport of boxing currently.

Rogan himself is 53, and has revealed that he keeps himself fighting-fit partly in thanks to taking testosterone supplements.
