The Biggest Loser: India

The Comic Book Guy has nothing on the loser in this story.

NEW DELHI (AFP) – An Indian filmgoer rented out an entire cinema to disprove a director’s claim that his latest horror movie is so scary no one can watch it alone, a newspaper said Tuesday.

Pavin Ponanna, 30, booked all 227 seats at a Bangalore multiplex for an evening screening of “Phoonk,” the Pioneer daily reported.

He asked cinema staff to have a doctor on call, but emerged declaring: “I never felt scared, not even for a moment. I took just ten minutes to settle down.” (H/T – )

How great would it have been if the staff walked into the theater after the show and saw Ponanna dead of a heart attack. What? I’m just sayin’.

I don’t know anyone who is as big a loser or has enough time to waste as this tool. Well, except maybe this guy. Heh.
