Remember the muscle-laden fish on SpongeBob Squarepants who had a bowl of nails for breakfast… without any milk? He was a pretty tough guy, maybe the toughest we’ve ever seen, but he was just surpassed by Will Arnett. Would you be impressed if we told you that Arnett walked on a bed of nails on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night? Of course you would, but he didn’t do that. Instead, he went a step beyond, actually walking on a bed of LEGO bricks… without any shoes ( via Uproxx).
Arnett, who voices Batman in the upcoming The LEGO Batman Movie, stalled for a minute by naming some of his co-stars in the movie ( Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, and Zach Galifianakis, among others) before taking off his shoes and standing at the foot of the 10-to-12-foot bed covered in hastily poured LEGO bricks, edges jutting out of the pile like a physical manifestation of anxiety and pain. Over the course of a few harrowing seconds, Arnett braved the painful plastic, slowly marching across the bricks like it was actually red coals beneath his feet. He gave a brave smile and thumbs up for the crowd, but that wasn’t enough to mask the anguish that was oh so apparent.Sure enough, he made it across, seemingly blood-free. How did it feel? We’ll never know, since he only had the energy to be draped in a blanket by Guillermo and double over in relief. We salute you, Arnett, as you may be the bravest person we’ve ever seen on TV.
