Video: Watch this guy try to cut a watermelon with a sword

The video shown above should be viewed as a public service announcement to all "Game of Thrones" fans looking for ways to use that sword they bought on the Internet. Do not use it to cut a watermelon. Especially if that watermelon is sitting on a glass table. 

Seems like a stating-the-obvious type situation. Not for one man, who attempted to cut a whole watermelon with a sword, on a glass patio table, on top of a cutting board. 

Because if you're going to cut a watermelon with a sword, it seems only logical to have a cutting board underneath it. And not the wooden kind. 

"Oh I love this sword," says Ali (no last name provided), who casually takes a giant sword out of its holder in the video. 

He then proceeds to take a big swing at a watermelon. 

*Spoiler alert. If you haven't watched the video above, Ali's attempt at using the sword is a complete disaster. In short, the watermelon remains whole on the ground and the patio table a casualty. The end. 

On the video's YouTube page, the only comment posted by the video's owner is that Ali is completely sober. In case you were wondering. 

And hat tip to for spotting this gem. 

I enjoy silly YouTube videos. Especially when they involve food. Follow me on Twitter @Jenn_Harris_
