Tyra with lightsabers

OK, for a moment I thought I was hallucinating: I just happened to flip channels to see Tyra Banks throwing rubber balls at three models who were holding lightsabers. But, checking the website that she fortuitously mentioned afterward, it seems that it was real:



Man, that was a strange thing to just stumble across on TV!

Re: Tyra with lightsabers

That's hot...in a really weird, postmodern, 80's day-glo kind of way.

Can that way even be hot? I'm so confused.

I believe that it legally can, in a "I Lost My Heart to a Starship Trooper" sort of way.

I never got that in the brief bit that I saw. She threw one ball at them, which I think missed, so then she walked over and bopped them each on the head with the remaining ball. My best guess is that it was some form of dodgeball(?), but I have no idea what the 'sabers were for (since they didn't seem to try to use them to deflect the incoming ball).

And, yeah, they grabbed the energy blades all sexy-like as in the above pic. My inner geek was silently yelling, "You'll cut off your fingers!"

Well from the clips I've seen from ''the soup'' it was ''Tyra'' being ''Tyra''just another normal (for her) show.

That video is the "Plan 9 from Outer Space" of music videos. It's so horrible that you want to show it to your friends, just to prove to them that something that horrifically bad actually exists.

Re: Tyra with lightsabers

Stupid... The picture is from Tyra's talk show. The three models she is posing with are the first three girls kicked off of this season AKA cycle of America's Next Top Model. The above photo shoot is supposed to represent the "redemption" of these three models as they dress as superheroes and pose doing different things that they were kicked off the show for. The girl on the left didn't smile with her eyes. The blond didn't pose well in a shoot where kickballs were being thrown at her (they aren't shown in the lightsaber pic). And the girl on the right didn't pose well with some lights, hence the lightsaber.

This is a very photoshopped pic... Tyra wasn't even wearing that outfit when she posed for the pic, but was wearing a black outfit.

I'm more concerned about the people in this thread who think a weapon that doesn't even exist can cut someone's fingers off.

I am even more concerned with people who lack a sense of humor.
