Watch a Dinosaur Try to Train for American Ninja Warrior

The T-rex was a bad choice.

American Ninja Warrior is a sports competition that currently airs on NBC and the Esquire Network. Dinosaurs are a sprawling family of  lizard-like animals that were the dominant species on the planet for nearly 135 million years. 

Putting the two together is a recipe for side-splitting laughter. 

Reko Rivera, the athlete behind this video, isn’t just an American Ninja Warrior: he’s an American hero for making his desk-bound followers laugh as hard as I did when I first saw this thing.

God bless you, Rivera … and please, do a stegosaurus next!
