    An inventor demonstrates his new helmet for American footballers.

  • Description

    Note: Location of the events is unknown.

    Full titles read: "CRASH ! - When you play football in America you need a good helmet - here's a new one guaranteed not a headache in a carload !"

    Group shot of an American football team, the inventor of the new helmet stands in the middle he says that he is going to personally demonstrate his new helmet. M/S's of the man lying on the ground with the helmet on, he takes several kicks to the head from a football player with his boots on.

    M/S of the man standing up and being hit on the head by a player with a baseball bat. The inventor remarks "It's like my mother-in-law isn't it !" Hilarious M/S's of the man being watched by the footballers as he bends down as he runs into a solid brick wall. He staggers back and falls over, however, he is helped to his feet and does the same again !

    Note: This really is a very funny story.
