'American Ninja Warrior' Contestant Reko Rivera's Dinosaur Workout

Sometimes the best antidote pop culture can provide is mindless entertainment. So, here is the clip you never knew to ask for, in which a dude in a Tyrannosaurus rex costume runs the obstacle course on American Ninja Warrior, thus confirming the fact that all reality television aspires to be The Gong Show. (That dude is Reko Rivera, who has run the course sans costume before.) He is surprisingly good despite his bobble head, wagging tail, and disproportionately small arms! Why yes, we would like a spinoff called American Dinosaur Warrior. After all, as a nation we get the reality television shows we deserve.
