This real-life recreation of King's Reverse Arm Slam Chain Grab from Tekken is hilarious and awesome

Anyone else get Married With Children vibes when the dummy went flying?

King, the jaguar-masked wrestler in the Tekken series, is a grappler character who is known for his command throws. One of his defining traits, in fact, are these long, intricate chain grabs that require a set of various inputs to pull off completely and successfully.

One such chain grab is called the Reverse Arm Slam, and with it King performs a series of slams on the opponent before grabbing them by the legs and swinging them around. It looks awesome in-game, but it looks hilarious AND awesome when performed in real life by MacheteHernand1.

Now, don't worry, the chain grab isn't performed on an actual human opponent. Instead, Machete puts the hurt on a dummy dressed in someone's clothes — which, let's be real, makes it even funnier.

For the full effect, the video is edited to include sounds and camera shakes making the grab more impactful. As the cherry on top, there's even a Wilhelm scream thrown in for good measure.

Despite the humorous tone of the video, the chain grab here is surprisingly accurate when compared to the actual in-game move. It also looks pretty difficult to do in real life, with some of those positions and rolls seeming particularly tough.
