1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Broke-Back Cowboy", Way to Die #133, is the seventh Segment in "Death Over Easy", which aired on February 8, 2009.


A wanna-be cowboy named Wade wants to be big by becoming an actor. Being featured in a commercial for cigarettes and only riding in the background made him feel like the next John Wayne. Right after his Agent told him that he did not get a role as a filmstar, he wants to convince his agent that he can take care over every stunt without problems. His horse trips over a rock causing him to fall back on the ground head first, transecting his entire neck.
