On last night’s episode of “Impractical Jokers,” a tribute to little boys who never grow up, Tru-TV plays the disclaimer across the screen loud and clear; warning that the following program contains scenes of graphic stupidity among four lifelong friends who compete to embarrass each other. Experience the belly laughs and outrageous stunts from the four guys who fans have come to know and love, but would likely not want to be victims of their stunts. Joe Gatto, Sal Vulcano, Brian “Q” Quinn and James “Murr” Murray were all born without filters and would do just about anything to win a challenge on this episode titled “Look Out Below.”
As the episode begins, the guys are in Atlantic City, N.J. at the Borgata Casinoworking in the hotel as bellhops. As each one must do what the other guys tell them to do, they will attempt to get a tip. If they do not get a tip; they lose.
Joe was up first, and when he showed the young couple to their room, he asked if they planned to make love tonight, along with mooning out the balcony windows, then dragging his behind across the floor like a dog. No tip, loser!
Q was up next, as he took a couple to their room, he told them it was their final resting place; he flushed the toilet, pounded against the walls to let them know it was a soundproof room and then as he unbuttoned his shirt asked if they were gonna do this? He even got a tip!
Murr was next, he took the young couple to their room and started unpacking their luggage and announcing each piece he took out. Then he stood on the bed and adjusted the lights over the bed and even got a tip!
Sal was up last; he brought extra towels, and continued to do so until they were piled sky high. Then he took a shower in their room and even got a tip. While he was in there, the woman laid upon the floor laughing! Yes, Sal got a tip!
Next up, they were operating a hot dog cart in New York and must say and do what the other guys tell them. If they refuse; they lose. Sal had to use his tongs to pinch a guy’s butt who was getting a drink from a water fountain. He then had to tell a woman from Germany that he found out he was related to Hitler. Luckily, she did not take him seriously. Next, after dressing the hot dog a woman ordered, he had to throw it into the park, as the woman called him a son of a bitch. When Q was talking with a guy named Mike, he wrote his name on the bun with marker. Murr, who loves to tweet, had to repeat his crazy tweets to his customer. When an adorable little boy wearing a hat got a pretzel from him, they wanted him to take his hat off and throw it, but Murr lost that one, because he would not do it. Joe gave a man who ordered a bottle of water, the royal treatment, as the millionth customer, he threw confetti in his face. He asked a customer what he called a pig in a blanket? Joe was told to say; it was his wife on a cold day, but flashing his wedding ring, he chose not to and therefore, lost. Now they found Joe’s Achilles’ heel.
The last challenge was a team challenge, Murr vs. Sal to find the big loser of the episode. While meeting with a group of people, Sal and Murr had to see whose invention was rated the best. Sal had a gigantic candy bar, called the 47-Hour Energy Bar and Murr had two tin cans with antennas called the CanTenna, but sadly, Murr was the loser of the day.
For his punishment, they went to Skydive in Long Island. Where they tricked Murr into believing that they were there for a practical joke. Then he found out that it was for his punishment, and Murr is deathly afraid of skydiving. When he found out it was his punishment, he freaked out as the other guys squealed like little girls. As Murr did everything to get out of this stunt; he then faced the music. He questioned if something went wrong and Q replied they would mourn him. They promised they would go up in the plane with him, but they would just land in a different way. They also reminded him that they all made a pact, that if it was a punishment, they must do it regardless. The guys did not let up on the heckling, but Murr was white as a sheet and so scared, he was in tears. When they went out of the plane, Murr screamed all the way down, as he went down in tandem with another skydiver. When he finally reached the ground, he was ready to throttle his fellow jokers, who totally tricked him on this hilarious episode of “Impractical Jokers.”
