We’ve talked about Gallagher in the past here on What About Watermelon. We’ve debated whether his watermelon-smashing comedy routine is “a crime against watermelon or all in good fun.” We’ve also wished him well in his recovery from a heart attack. If the recent video above is any indication, it looks like the man and his trademark Sledge-O-Matic are doing just fine.
The three-and-a-half minute video, titled “Gallagher in Slow Motion,” is exactly that – a slow-mo look at what one man and his wooden sledgehammer can do to watermelons and other defenseless foodstuffs (although a bowl at the 1:15 mark fights back by taking a few chunks out of the Sledge-O-Matic). The video crosses into the bizarre soon after that with a shirtless Gallagher swinging a flaming sledgehammer. Then again, he’s kind of a wacky guy, so the scene sort of makes sense, doesn’t it?
