Brag About Dumb Stunts

Monday, February 8, 2010 17:23 GMT

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Doing stupid, wacky, and dangerous stunts is something to brag about.

At least that’s the case on Bragster.com, a website that challenges visitors to complete crazy dares as a means to boost their ego and brag about their accomplishment.

Users upload pictures or videos of themselves doing the dumb dares others propose, like ninja chopping a piece of concrete, drinking a liter of milk as fast as possible, or growing a huge moustache.

Wim Vernaeve and Bertrand Bodson created the site as a way to record the crazy things they’d been bragging about to their friends, and now give others the chance to boast over their wild antics.

The Bragster team is looking to make their website a new social networking medium for people who enjoy being up to no good.

The duo explain, “They don’t call us Jackass meets Facebook for nothing.”
