Typically speaking, people smashing things with their head doesn’t make for great family entertainment. However, a contestant on Sri Lanka’s Got Talent has gone viral after knocking himself out with a large roof tile during an ill-thought-out karate demonstration.
Sudarshana Deshappriya (aka Sri Lanka’s Karate Kid) was attempting to impress the trio of judges by repeatedly having terracotta tiles smashed over his body parts.
The finale to the act saw Deshappriya attempt to crack a tile over his own head that, sadly, sent the 32-year-old straight to La La land.
But not everyone’s happy with the show’s producers for allowing the segment to go ahead, with Twitter followers suggesting that Deshappriya should never have been allowed on stage in the first place. Some claimed the poor chap clearly “had some form of disability” and it was wrong for TV audiences to be laughing at him.
On a brighter note, Deshappriya did regain consciousness in time to hear the three judges give him three yeses to advance to next week’s program. Check out the knockout action below:
