Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

An arrow to the knee only pisses a bear off.

If you’ve played any of The Elder Scrolls games then you’re probably all too familiar with the heavy hand of the law, and Skyrim is no exception. Guards are notorious for overreacting, even vowing to slay those that dared strike down a chicken. So what better way to have a little fun with those overzealous guards than to turn it into a parody of the Cops television show?

One of the many series run by the Nerdist is just that, and this week the third episode of the fourth season run of the parody rolled out to YouTube. A few of the lessons learned this week include how to respond to a drunk and disorderly, handling a murderer, and how not to handle a bear.

If you enjoyed that episode, be sure to check out more on the Nerdist YouTube channel.

Skyrim guards are well-known for their overreacting nature, so giving them a cops style show is probably a bad idea.
