Being the pacifists we are here at B&T we’re unaware of the cage fighting exploits of UFC star Bryce Mitchell.
But a quick Wiki search reveals the 26-year-old is from Arkansas in the US and is presently ranked the 15th best cage figher in the UFC competition.
Putting his fame to good use, Mitchell has fronted a new advert for his local car dealership Drive On Time Motors in East County.
And it has to be said, the spot has it all – burnouts, explosions, handguns and the fascinating revelation that Mitchell once, famously, “ripped my testicles open with a drill”.
Apparently, back in August 2018, Mitchell was doing some DIY around the house when he inadvertenly put an electric drill in his front pocket severing his scrotum and testicles.
“I deserve to be made fun of,” Mitchell said at the time of the accident. “I really am that stupid. I didn’t have a tool belt. I put a drill in my pants. But I was in a rush.”
Thankfully, he’s turned the unfortunate mishap into one of the great lines in one of the worst commercials ever made.
