"Ball 'N Pain", Way to Die #817, is the seventh death to be featured in "Waking Up Dead", which aired on February 3, 2010.


Terry and Cedric steal a globe riding/zorb ball and play around in it, in a plain road in the mountains.

"Compare those two with hamsters, would be an insult to the entire rodent community."

-The narrator after the zorb ball expert opinion.

However, when take the wrong path, they roll down a mountain at 45 mph (72 km/h), repeatedly hitting their skulls and breaking many of their bones on each other to which the narrator compares to being in a multiple car crash without wearing a seatbelt. And by the time the ball stops by a branch, Terry and Cedric are dead by multiple trauma.


  • If one noticed something at the beginning of the story, a random person walks by while Terry and Cedric are waking to a zorb ball.
  • This is the only death where the narrator explains the death in the doggerel quote.
