Will Ferrell “Juggles” On The Office

Transitioning from four to five balls! Pirouettes! Juggling off of someone’s face! A neck catch finish! Who knew Will Ferrell was such a skilled fake juggler!

Is this a nice tribute to the power of juggling as a motivational tool? Or an insult to the Juggling Subculture? We’re not sure, but it did make us laugh pretty hard!

Remember: Nothing’s impossible!


Austrian Juggling Commercial

Commercials that feature juggling make us happy. Sure they’re ripe for awful cliches and false juggling stereotypes–so many clowns!–but we still like seeing the Juggling Subculture represented on the small screen.

Here’s a new one we found. It’s an Austrian commercial for some sort of super fruit drink called Noem Mix Trinkfrucht. It stars juggler Manuel Mitasch.

Flying Karamozov Brothers for Fire Safety

Last week New York City’s NY1 reported that the Flying Karamozov Brothers recently teamed up with the New York City Fire Department to create a public service announcement to promote fire prevention.

Frank Pizarro of the FDNY explained, “it worked, because the fire department, fire, torches flying everywhere . . . it’s really a fun project. And it’s going to educate young people especially, as to fire safety.”

FKB and FDNY will film the PSA in a couple of weeks. We’ll let you know when it hits the airwaves.

Interview With Nick Pike

In a recent interview on Remote Patrolled, Nick Pike opens up about his America’s Got Talent experience. He discusses the three acts he was able to perform, his minor feud with judge Piers Morgan, and his post-AGT plans.

When asked if he would have done anything differently, Nick says:

I have no regrets. I achieved what I set out to do – and then some. I had a lot of fun performing and meeting all the other contestants on the show.  I would love to thank all of my supporters and fans out there, and challenge any of my critics to get out of their arm chair audition for the show, make it to the top 48, and then get back to me!!

A Juggling Muppet on Sesame Street

We were recently clued in to this piece of Sesame Street gold from ToughPigs.com,  a website “for Muppet fans who grew up.”

It seems that Dexter only appeared on the childrens’ show twice, but we were impressed with the skill that must have gone in to creating a Muppet that can carry on a conversation and juggle.

We wonder how far Dexter would make it on America’s Got Talent. (Still feeling for you Nick Pike!)


Nick Pike Receives Second Chance on America’s Got Talent

Apparently America’s Got Talent wasn’t done with Nick Pike after all!

The cruise ship juggler–who suffered the fate of nearly all jugglers on the popular talent competition last week–was invited back to join the top 48 line-up in Hollywood last night.

Nick received this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when the sword swallowing act of Twisted Trystan and Krystan withdrew from the competition.

Here’s his performance from last night:

That’s right, even though they brought him back, the judges gave Nick nothing but grief. Luckily the judges no longer decide who moves forward. Nick Pike’s fate is now in the hands of the American public.


Jugglers Ousted Again on America’s Got Talent

We should have seen it coming.

Last week, the few jugglers that got through to Las Vegas on America’s Got Talent were quickly sent packing.

In what seems like an endless supply of rejection, the jugglers were once again dismissed from the summer talent show, despite demonstrating skill far beyond many who were put through to Hollywood.

Those of us in the Juggling Subculture are once again left scratching our heads, wondering if any jugglers will ever be given a the chance to present their talents to the American public.

Here’s Nick Pike‘s Vegas performance:
