5) Afro Ninja
Afro Ninja could teach us all a thing or two about persistence. Does a back-flip that turns into a faceplant mean you should give up on an audition? Not if you’re the Afro Ninja. Then you get back up on your knees and smack yourself in the face with your nunchaku before giving up. This was the very first Tosh.0 Web Redemption. What I really liked was how smug Afro Ninja was throughout the entire thing. I guess if you don’t mind abusing your face like he did in his audition you don’t really care about everyone who has ever heard of the internet laughing at you. He kicked off the Tosh.0 Web Redemptions by successfully completing a backflip and waving his nunchaku around. We are so proud Afro Ninja, so proud.

4) Backyard Wrestler
First off I would like to say I am amazed that this guy is still alive. The video has been taken down from YouTube, but this video is much like the Afro Ninja. Instead of being a ninja with an afro, it is a fat white kid attempting to do a back-flip. The results are even worse. The kid lands on his face and jams his neck, it was a scary looking injury. Luckily he was alive and well and Daniel Tosh gave the kid another chance to prove his wrestling prowess. With much flab jiggling around, the kid proved he could complete a back-flip from the top rope in the ring with becoming a paraplegic.

3) Tron Guy
The Tron Guy proved how easily we are amused when surfing the internet. He was simply a fat guy with glasses and a creepy mustache who made himself a Tron costume. We as a people were amused by the way his gut protruded and the simplicity of his costume. Daniel Tosh gave the Tron Guy a chance to show the world that he wasn’t just some creepy guy wearing hockey pads over his spandex. Instead the Tron Guy showed us that is exactly what he was, even having a light cycle race against Tosh. Let your freak flag fly Tron Guy, we will never judge you.

2) Trampled Cheerleader
That cheerleader got taken out big time. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the biggest hit of the night. I have to give her some respect because she took it well. At least as well as could be expected after getting trampled by some hefty young men. My favorite part is when one of the football players stops as if he is going to help her, but then decides he has more pressing concerns in the other direction. Daniel Tosh gives her a chance to not be in front of a banner as football players run through it. She is remarkable in her ability to not be standing directly in front of the banner as the football players make their entrance, but I was most entertained by Daniel Tosh talking about his homecoming. He took an abstinence pledge for his community, but he was allowed to fingerblast a girl. Fair trade.

1) Home Shopping Fail
Harold McCoo is a hell of a salesman. He takes his job on the Cable Value Network very seriously, even when he is selling strangely shaped ladders. Unfortunately he forgot to lock the ladder he was trying to sell and got a quick lesson in gravity. This led to quite possibly the most dramatic Tosh.0 Web Redemption we will ever see. Daniel Tosh sets up the same ladder that gave out on Harold McCoo all those years ago, but this time the stakes are higher. Underneath the ladder is a group of babies! Wait, that’s not dramatic enough for you? Then how about we throw some puppies under that ladder too?! The tension is unbelievable as McCoo starts to make his way across the ladder, fitting for a season finale. You’ll just have to watch to see how it ends.
