The following is one of those weird moments in life where you watch something and honestly don't understand how what you saw is possible.
This is probably because every instinct you have insists there is no way anyone could easily beat Thor "The Mountain" Bjornsson in an arm-wrestling match.
You'd concede there are probably a few people on the planet who could beat the man who plays Ser Gregor Clegane on HBO's Game of Thrones, but it'd be a tough battle, seeing as he's 6'9", 400 pounds and—you know—Europe's Strongest Man.
But that's exactly what you're watching: Bjornsson being handily beaten time and again in a friendly arm-wrestling competition against Canadian pulling titan Devon Larratt.
A two-time World Armwrestling League champion, Larratt took on Bjornsson one arm at a time.
Watching Larratt coolly instruct one of the strongest men to ever walk the Earth in proper arm-wrestling technique while said strong man is trying really hard to pin him is one of the more surreal things you'll see.
Larratt just stands there, kindly reminding Bjornsson to maintain eye contact for full focus. He's being very polite to the Mountain, who would really like to win this thing:
Just goes to show, there are different kinds of strength and a lot more to arm-wrestling than just brute force. It's like sweaty, red-faced chess, and Larratt is a grand master.
Bjornsson, on the other hand...he's more into the kind of strength that produces head smoothies.
Dan is on Twitter. He's just glad no one exploded a bicep.
