02:16
(bleep)
02:17
Damn it!
02:19
These older carts--
02:21
Matt, I wonder if we could--
02:22
could you, like I'm gonna set this shot up,
02:24
and just push it like
02:26
three feet ahead?
02:29
Cue the cart. Let's go!
02:33
Damn it!
02:34

02:53
Oh (bleep)!
02:56

03:00
Please don't touch his clubs. Sir, it's fine.
03:01
[Agent] I don't need anymore slick from you bro.
03:03
Okay, alright, alright.
03:05
Let's calm down.
03:06
I have never seen anything like that before in my life.
03:08
I don't understand how you were driving it
03:10
and you're not in it.
03:11
We were pushing it.
03:12
Why were you pushing the cart?
03:14
He test me to.
03:15
That was a classic Kevin, right there, which is--
03:17
Are you (bleep) kidding me?
03:18
Alright.
03:19
I am a huge fan.
03:20
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, (bleep) off!
03:23
[Agent] Look at this.
03:23
Oh my God, are you (bleep) kidding me?
03:27
My club is absolutely (bleep) broken.
03:31
I feel like it's at least half Matt's fault.
03:34
What? You,
03:35
what the (bleep) are you doing bro?
03:36
I don't understand how the cart is there and you are here.
03:39
He test me to. Joey, get the,
03:40
smash the camera.
03:41
Smash the camera, get that.
03:43
No, that's my wife's camera.
03:45
That's not his camera. That's not my camera.
03:47
Please don't do that. That's not my camera.
03:49
[Brian] Oh my God!
03:50
You know what, we're not gonna use your wife
03:51
to take pictures.
03:53
I can't do it.
03:54
Penalize her.
03:55
You're gonna be responsible for all of it.
03:57
Are you kidding me?
03:58
I did ask you to push it five feet and it went
04:00
a lot of ways.
04:01
Five feet!
04:02
Why would you push it down a hill?
04:03
Who pushes a cart down a hill?
04:05
Absolutely insane.
04:08
The is the asshole that push my (bleep) cart down there.
04:11
Are you seriously blaming this on me?
04:15
Oh, you got Shanked!
04:17
Dude, you've been Shanked.
04:18
(laughing)
04:20
Dude, you've been Shanked.
04:22

04:23
(laughing)
04:28
Wow!
04:30
What's up dude?
04:31
Dude!
04:32
I'm sorry. Wow!
04:33
Are you mad at me?
04:34
No, no, it's just soon as the shaking stops, I'll be good.
04:37
Matt was as nice as they could be.
04:38
Probably had his worst moment
04:39
when I started smashing his wife's camera.
04:41
Everything went pretty smoothly.
04:43
Matt bought it the entire time.
04:46
He looked scared to death.
04:47
He was completely shocked, had no idea.
04:49
And he exceeded my expectations with the--
04:52
defending me and my camera gear.
04:55
Did you see my face?
04:56
No, I didn't. When that thing went
04:56
into the woods.
04:58
Got a good man.
05:00
Wow!
05:01
What just happened?
05:02
I got Shanked.
05:03
I got Shanked.
05:09
Yeah, they weren't supposed to send out this cart today.
05:11
I may have to reset it.
05:13
Will you hit the switch in the back?
05:15
It's a switch on the right.
05:19
Oh (bleep)!
05:22
Damn it!
05:23
Nice!
05:24
Who ran over my clubs?
05:25
I'm just a cart guy man, don't start--
05:27
