Ok, lets just start out by saying that Neg Dupree is my f’ing Hero! and yes, this is going to be one of those posts that is NOT kid friendly. Neg is a foul mouthed Brit who probably shouldn’t be let out in public. But MAN am I glad he’s free to roam the streets!
There is a TV show called Balls of Steel, and Neg produced a whole series of “Urban Sports” that ran on the show and… well, take a look at them for yourselves. Must be the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Whoop! Whoop! By the way, you can follow Neg over on Twitter, or Facebook as well as his personal site.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Urban Sprinting
Neg triggers security alarms in shops and provokes the security guards to chase him as he would try to run from the shop to the nearest burger bar as quickly as possible. He also screams his familiar battlecry “whoop whoop whoop whoop” while avoiding capture by the security guards On the second attempt at this, Neg was taken down on an escalator by the head of security who had retired two weeks before.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Stag Hunting
Similar to “Neg’s Burger Bowl Off”, Neg would instead of throwing burgers at one person throw them at a group of men on a stag night.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Swear Bingo
Neg knocks on people’s doors and tries to make them say swear words that are written on a 2Ã—3 “swear bingo” card. When the person leaves, points are scored if a horizontal line of three swear words or a bingo if all six swear words have been scored.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Speed Smoking
Neg aims to take as many drags from a cigarette as possible in public places, where smoking is now illegal, before he is kicked out. Inspired by the changes to UK laws.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Make em Move
Neg stands or sits near locals and acts extremely strangely and madly; the shorter the time taken to make the people move, the better the score.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Big Stranger Rodeo
Neg jumps on a stranger’s back and rides them like a rodeo. The object is to stay off the ground for as long as possible.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Knock and DON’T Run
Neg knocks on a stranger’s door and tries to keep them standing there for as long as possible. If the person closes the door, Neg knocks again and the timer continues if they re-open it.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Keep em’ Out
Similar to Make ‘Em Move, the object is to deny someone access to an area entered via sliding doors, by acting “mental”. The more quickly he gets them to leave the area, the better. On Balls of Steel, Neg tells host Mark Dolan that the movie “Sliding Doors” inspired this Urban Sport.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Urban Skittles
Neg walks into a local building and screams at everyone to hit the floor whilst mimicking a gun/any other weapon under his shirt. For every person that hits the floor, a point is scored.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Big European Stranger Rodeo
The same as “Big Stranger Rodeo”, played on victims of various European nationalities. During the third attempt, Neg’s victim (an Italian) initially tried to shake him off, but decided to ignore him instead.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Red Carpet Run
Neg ‘crashes’ a red carpet event and tries to evade security for as long as possible. Neg was actually arrested during this shoot when he crashed Will Smith movie premier at Leicester Square.
Neg’s Urban Sports – My Ball
Neg finds some people playing a ball sport, be it rugby, football or basketball. He then takes the ball, and the longer he has the ball, the better the score. If Neg gets “clattered”, he fails and the score is void.
Neg’s Urban Sports – Neg’s Burger Bowl Off
Neg buys several items from fast food restaurants and throws them at unsuspecting people from the roof of a car while being driven around. The more the food cost, the more points obtained for a hit. This was the one Urban Sport where Neg took the Balls of Steel trophy. There was controversy as to whether his actions could be considered as assault.
Neg, if you ever make your way to Dallas, give me a ring and we’ll have some serious fun mate!
