VIDEO: Hitting a bowling ball with a golf club is as dumb, painful as it looks


Trick shots are tired, but watching people colossally screw them up will never get old. However, it's amazing that this fail even got out of the concept stage.

YouTube user Mystrsyko does bowling trick shots, and they're cool. But, in making his latest video compilation, he decided to bring a golf club into the mix. The idea was to make a strike after hitting a bowling ball with a full golf swing.

That sounds pretty painful, arguably worse than hitting an old Top Flite in the cold. However, Mystrysko gives it a go for 10 minutes, making good contact a couple of times. On the final attempt, though, the ball finally wins as the trick-shot artists hurts himself -- and the golf club.

We've chopped down the video to just that last try:

Owwww is right.
