1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Pained Gun", Way to Die #499, is the fifth death featured in "Death Be Not Stupid", which aired on March 15, 2009.


Luke and Mickey, a pair of high-school rejected boys, film themselves in a YouTube series (called Suburban Slaughter), which consists of them doing various shootings on people (including a drive-by on an old lady with a purse) with a paintball gun as part of a hare-brained plot to become viral video stars on YouTube, not realizing it's just as illegal to shoot with a paintball gun as it is with an actual firearm. When the gun malfunctions, it shoots the canister of CO2 at 200 mph (or 320 km/h) into Mickey's larynx, which breaks his neck and kills him and thus sending him to hell. Horrified, Luke tries to get help... only for the previous victim to catch up with him and start hitting him with her purse.

An old lady got painted by two boys (not shown on this photo) with a paintball gun, which soon malfunctions, until one of the boys shoots the canister of CO2 at 200 mph onto his friend, which has been killed by breaking his neck.
