A man was caught on video trying to steal valor by pretending to be a Navy Seal, the only problem was…he was confronted by two very real Army Rangers.
(Note to self: lying about being something you’re not never ends well.)
The five-minute long video posted to LiveLeak begins with an unidentified man waiting outside for someone from inside a bar or club to come out and fight him. Nearby, two Army Rangers who happen to be waiting for their Uber to pick them up, approach the guy who is waiting to fight and start interrogating him.
As the footage continues, one of the men asks the clearly naive dude why he is so confident that he can take on a potential contender in a street brawl. According to IJReview, the Army Ranger asked:
Why do you think you can take him? What’s your competitive edge? I’m just curious, do you do training? Are you jiu jitsu, do you do striking? He’s got some size on you, are you just more aggressive?
The guy then replies with:
I was in the SEALs.
Not convinced, the two Rangers decide to really drill him with questions about his previous experience as a “Navy Seal.” They start by asking the guy simple questions like, “What year did you serve,” and “Where did you deploy?” He confidently replies with: “two years and Afghanistan.” Then one of the men asks him if he had received a Trident after becoming a Navy SEAL and the guy says he never received one, but he was attached to the SEAL team Artillery.
The two men don’t buy it, and not knowing that the men are Army Rangers, the guy proceeds to dig himself an even bigger hole when he tells the men, “you guys wouldn’t know the area of Afghanistan.”
The conversation quickly turns into a serious life lesson for the thief. The men finally tell the guy that they are Army Rangers and proceed to rough him up for playing the lying game.
At the end of the footage, the wannabe valor thief shamefully walks away from a fight he knew he wouldn’t win and admitted that he lied about being a Navy SEAL…because the Rangers LET HIM walk away.
