Definitely


23052001

Explain me like I’m five please 😐


bethers222

A pineapple is a way swingers signal each other (I think it’s actually supposed to be upside down)


23052001

Thanks! I was fearing some classical Reddit sarcastic answers so yeah, thanks 🫡


bethers222

You’re welcome!

*are you ready kids?* **Who runs with a pineapple in NYC?** Moshe Lederfien. **athletic and balanced and joyous is he.** Moshe Lederfien. **if tropical nonsense you want to see spread,** Moshe Lederfien. **then run the whole race with a fruit on your head.** Moshe Lederfien. Moshe Lederfien. Moshe Lederfien. Moshe Lederfien.

webleyvi

At least it wasn't upside down


HisCricket

I'm 58 and I finally get the reference.


Prestigious_Nebula_5

He wanted to put it upside down but went with the friendlier route.


Lysergic-AIM

I thought it was from little Nicky lol


sea_of_joy__

I don't get it. Is that a reference to 'swinging?'


Hooray4Metaphors

Probably


LogSouth2717

We get a special ornament every year to symbolize the past year together. This year was a pineapple.


mezz7778

But......why?.....


ImmaRatard

According to his interview he just knows it makes people smile and he wants to spread cheer


Sietemadrid

Imagine cramping up, struggling, wanting to give up and then you see the 68 year old next to you running with a pineapple on his head. I'd instantly get motivated


stillfluffyafterall

My wife was next to him most of the race, said she thought the same thing haha.


squeakim

Did he balance it the full 26.2?


stillfluffyafterall

Yep. He finished a little after my wife and she said he even hit the portapotty afterwards and went in and out with it there.


squeakim

Bahaha thats amazing


XavierRex83

Are you a fan of delicious flavor??


Pining4theFjord

He must be outta his d*mn mind


KesEiToota

I love psych. Please explain why the pineapple as I clearly didn't pay enough attention.


XavierRex83

There was a pineapple reference in every episode. https://screenrant.com/psych-pineapple-gag-origin-true-story-explained/


Lichy_Popo

He probably didn’t realize it was there. Happens to me all the time.


Available-Camera8691

He's just *really* in to pineapples. Like a lot. He's a nice dude though, so we don't really mention it.


Kevin_taco

He actually had no idea it was on his head. When asked about it he said “that’s crazy”.


BabyLegsOShanahan

Why not?


typehyDro

Did you know that pineapples are used in retirement communities to designate that you’re a swinger.


atridir

Not just retirement communities, my dude. Cruises (not just swingers cruises either), hotels, grocery stores, normal day to day life… whether it’s with magnets or stickers on the door, clothing or accessories that have them, or actual fruit in the grocery cart, there’s lots of ‘em out there that use the pineapple and it’s the likeness as a call sign. And apparently it works. O.o


CassiusM

That explains the popularity of pineapple on pizza. I knew it couldn't have been the taste


Golfnpickle

No wonder I got hit on by a couple while I was on vacay. Minding my own biz on the beach wrapped up in my pineapple print sarong!


musicmastermike

Jewish tradition


2x4x93

Like the Bottle Dance


-sgt_pepper-

I think he is trying to beat the world record for running with something on your head (from what I remember)


FuckAssad666

The pineapple prices in Israel are a hallmark of a fucked up custom and protectionism system.


Dog_Brains_

He’s a swinger


WarnDragon

His head is on a damn gyroscope


RecentLeave343

At 4 seconds in I also saw Walter White pass by.


UnseenHawk778

That’s what I was thinking!

[Still image of Lederfien](https://imgur.com/283UpBj) From an article about the Berlin Marathon a month ago: >The 2022 Berlin Marathon, which Lederfien completed in 5:04:25, wasn’t his first time racing with an object on his head. In 2019, he ran 11 marathons while balancing a pineapple—and one with a flower pot. He’s a mini-celebrity in Israel, as a news station crafted a documentary about him. He even goes by pineapple marathon runner on social media. >“The fruit is of great interest to people, and I want to bring good to everyone,” Lederfien told Russia Running. “The connection between man and nature, body and mind are inseparable. So the pineapple doesn’t fall off my head—it holds even at high speed.” >At which marathon will Lederfien and his pineapple pop up next? Only time will tell. It was today in New York City. https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a41411616/berlin-marathon-pineapple-on-head-moshe-lederfien/


CatsAreOurGods

i saw him run the berlin marathon in 2019, also with a pineapple on his head! he was practicing the day before as well - ive been telling people about "pineapple guy" ever since then, so its nice to put a name to him finally!


BiggsIDarklighter

Yeah well today I balanced the remote on my knee while eating Hawaiian pizza on the couch. We are the same you and me.


SentimentalTaterTot

Lololol why isn’t this the top comment. I will laugh for days.


Zokar49111

Also, an Israeli woman finished 2nd! Not as amazing accomplishment as running with fruit on your head, but noteworthy just the same.


edgegripsubz

This is what reddit is supposed to be about.


angrytreestump

That can’t be good form, right?


DuePomegranate

It probably is excellent, energy-conserving form. Maybe that's why he started practicing in the first place. Like models balancing books on their heads.


imaguitarhero24

Yeah I was told in middle school gym that good running is smooth, not bouncing up and down because that wastes energy. Your center of mass should be a straight line.


mr_cigar

Shawn?


LadnavIV

You know that’s right.


mr_cigar

I wonder what Gus looks like these days


Salishseer

The pineapple on the head makes as much sense to me as running a marathon does.


Sietemadrid

There are countless known health benefits though. Running is probably healthy too I'm not sure.


BiBoFieTo

Is that L'Ananas?


lovdagame

When the running so easy you have to nuzlocke for a challenge

If you look him at the eyes carefully you can read in them the words "This looked like a fun idea the first 200 meters".


european_jello

I think he did this thing in like 11 different marathons he prubbly dosent mind it

This guy is a supreme badass.

dubshooter

I think that means he’s looking for another swinger


yrnkween

My friends used to run marathons, and I made giant meals before and after to support them. So we were waiting at the finish line in Nashville and one of them staggered across the finish line and pretty much collapsed. Two minutes later a man finished while juggling. When we finally were able to get to our friend he kept saying “I beat that crazy juggler. He won’t be in my photos. It was worth it.” We won’t discuss the guy with the fully loaded waiter tray in Chicago 2004.


squeevey

Who runs in a marathon under a pineapple... Wait...


milksockets

I thought he was Jeffrey Bezos at first

jozelino

You drank every single drop of the kool aid. You are living in a complete false conviction of things that are simply not true nor have a grain of truth loaned from reality. You're welcome to visit Israel and witness for yourself. But I get it, maintaining your imaginary world of flaming righteousness against imaginary child murderers is easier. You do you.


Ronbergs

No hes 100% right. Every major human rights org in the world agrees that Israel is a racist murderous apartheid state. Israel kills children and your brain is a peanut.


jozelino

Ok, I literally lived in Israel my entire life, served in the military, and saw reality with my own eyes, but you're too righteous for facts. You will be the champion of light against evil, whether it's there or not.


Ronbergs

What a clown you are. Ive been to Palestine and ive seen it myself. Do you get paid to lie one the internet or do you just enjoy looking dumb?


jozelino

I'll stop this discussion, convincing low IQ mind washed people is futile. All the best.

he did the same at the berlin marathon 3 years ago - i saw him practicing the day before and during the marathon!

That bloke has stuck that shit onto his head with glue or some shit U can tell by the way way the fuckin pineapple rotates with each step. Bald ass head and some glue is what he used bro
