Fainting Deadlift Guy Gets His 15 Minutes

I first heard about the wonders of Fainting Deadlift Guy on With Leather earlier this month. Then, Wednesday night, he returned to my life on my TV thanks to Comedy Central's Tosh.0. ↵(Some NSFW language)

↵It is really an internet classic. (Anytime you reach into the six-figure territory on views, you've made it.) I actually went back to check out the original YouTube clip to see if there was any update on the guy. Didn't want to mock him if he had a stroke and died or something. But then I read the YouTube description: ↵
↵⇥I know my form breaks and I lift partially with my rounded back which I'm sure sends me straight to hell. I lifted the next day and will continue to get stronger. Passing out had nothing to do with form and everything to do with getting stoked to a previously unimaginable level. You should try it sometime. I was still high off of the endorphins after my chin was stitched up. ↵
↵To boil it down: he wouldn't change a thing. We just hope that next time he does the exact same thing, someone will be there to gleefully tape it and put it on the web again.
