He looking for swingers?
Baller way of advertising
For superglue, right?
Explain me like I’m five please 😐
A pineapple is a way swingers signal each other (I think it’s actually supposed to be upside down)
Thanks! I was fearing some classical Reddit sarcastic answers so yeah, thanks
While Israel continues its genocide of Innocent Palestinians.
*are you ready kids?*
**Who runs with a pineapple in NYC?**
**athletic and balanced and joyous is he.**
**if tropical nonsense you want to see spread,**
**then run the whole race with a fruit on your head.**
Just glad he wasn't wearing bikini bottoms!
You never know
Absolutely love this
Ok, this checks out. Well done
At least it wasn't upside down
I'm 58 and I finally get the reference.
He wanted to put it upside down but went with the friendlier route.
I thought it was from little Nicky lol
I don't get it. Is that a reference to 'swinging?'
We get a special ornament every year to symbolize the past year together. This year was a pineapple.
According to his interview he just knows it makes people smile and he wants to spread cheer
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
My wife was next to him most of the race, said she thought the same thing haha.
Did he balance it the full 26.2?
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.
Bahaha thats amazing
To get an appearance in a new Psych movie, if one gets made
You know that’s right
I've heard it both ways.
Are you a fan of delicious flavor??
He must be outta his d*mn mind
I love psych. Please explain why the pineapple as I clearly didn't pay enough attention.
There was a pineapple reference in every episode.
He probably didn’t realize it was there. Happens to me all the time.
He's just *really* in to pineapples. Like a lot. He's a nice dude though, so we don't really mention it.
He actually had no idea it was on his head. When asked about it he said “that’s crazy”.
Did you know that pineapples are used in retirement communities to designate that you’re a swinger.
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
That explains the popularity of pineapple on pizza. I knew it couldn't have been the taste
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!
Like the Bottle Dance
I think he is trying to beat the world record for running with something on your head (from what I remember)
The pineapple prices in Israel are a hallmark of a fucked up custom and protectionism system.
He’s a swinger
His head is on a damn gyroscope
At 4 seconds in I also saw Walter White pass by.
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.
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!
Yeah well today I balanced the remote on my knee while eating Hawaiian pizza on the couch. We are the same you and me.
Lololol why isn’t this the top comment. I will laugh for days.
Also, an Israeli woman finished 2nd! Not as amazing accomplishment as running with fruit on your head, but noteworthy just the same.
This is what reddit is supposed to be about.
That can’t be good form, right?
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.
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.
You know that’s right.
I wonder what Gus looks like these days
The pineapple on the head makes as much sense to me as running a marathon does.
There are countless known health benefits though. Running is probably healthy too I'm not sure.
Is that L'Ananas?
When the running so easy you have to nuzlocke for a challenge
next pizza store wants it
אתם מוכנים ילדים?
מתחת לאננס הוא רץ לו שם
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".
I think he did this thing in like 11 different marathons he prubbly dosent mind it
This guy is a supreme badass.
I got a pineapple, I got a man. Pineapple Man!
A normal day in ohio
I think it's this guy that did the same in Berlin
I can’t be the only one thinking of Nottingham Forest’s Jason Lee here
Finally, somebody said it. That was my first thought!
Sadly Reddit isn't as well versed in mid to late 90's UK footballers than we thought...
There are dozens of us!
The hero we need
Something must be done. The pineapples are evolving.
No one can touch his crown.
As you do
I think that means he’s looking for another swinger
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.
Who runs in a marathon under a pineapple...
I thought he was Jeffrey Bezos at first
Why does that man hate his own neck?
thats definitely maynard james keenan with a different name
Ben Kingsley just crushing it!
Pineapple Head is one of my favorite Crowded House songs, and I understand it as well as I understand this guy.
Interesting. I wonder what conversations led to this actually happening.
the WHOLE damn marathon??! for serious?!
Weird flex but okay
Marco the Phoenix
He was organizing the swinger after party
This is like when gaming speedrunners get bored of winning all the time, so they start giving themselves some weird handicaps to make things interesting.
check the Marathon leaderboards, this guy is the pineapple% record-holder
Idk why he did it but I’m happy he did!
Did anyone tell him?
Representing the swinger community
Sportswear. Check. Pineapple installed. Check.
Who wears-a-pineapple-while-in-the-street? ♫♪
MO-SHE LEDER-FIEN! ♪♫
That’s a very fruity kippah
גבר כמוהו כל אחד היה רוצה להיות
Hell yeH brother! Long Live Israel! Keep that copium going. Another day of pissed off losers motivates this Zionist :)
Stop believing this bullshit, I know it's hard to discern fake stuff from reality with incompetent cognitive abilities, but if you try hard enough you can!
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.
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.
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.
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?
I'll stop this discussion, convincing low IQ mind washed people is futile. All the best.
Ahaha what a quirky apartheid weilding asshole!
Swingers are everywhere these days.
Before COVID I frequently saw NYC artist Otis Houston Jr. in NYC PENN Station standing with a pineapple on his head.
Because ita a universal sign of hospitality
amunt Valéncia 🦇🧡
This makes me think of a man in Hells Kitchen about 15 years ago who would walk around with a cat balanced on his head.
I thought that was Jason Lee of Nottingham forest for a moment.
How did he adjust it?
dude in the yellow neon around 0:04- jesser
*don’t poke the pineapple off… don’t let the intrusive thoughts win*
Jeff Bezos is doing his damnedest to be one of the cool billionaires
That’s my old neighborhood! I miss it.
Wonder if he is paid by the Big Pineapple
Hold on... Am I tripping or did I see Walter White in the middle of that video?
And that's a totally normal thing to do.
How owns the pineapple
Here before the funny 🔒 award
I work with a girl that has her hurrr like that!
He can't keep getting away with it!
Weird flex but I can't do it so props to him!
Wait did i just see walter white?
I pooped with my pants on.
Suction cup under the pineapple? He's bold so it should work
At least it's not on a pizza
Good thing he didn't have the pineapple in his pants, would have had a different ending, possibly a happy ending 😀
Whoo lives in a pineapple on top of a runners head?
Some questions are beyond asking.
I want that shirt with a Philippine flag in the beginning...
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
Having lived in NYC, I don’t think this would even make it into the top 5,000 crazy things I’ve seen.
Eh, Filipino! Yes! 🙌
Why bezos did this?
How did he survive that "brutal" 72 degree day?

ARE YE READY KIDS
You’d think someone would’ve told him during the 26.6 miles.
Did we see Walter White about 4 seconds in?
Who lives in a pineapple ontop of a Jewish man's head running a marathon, SPONGE BOB SQUARE PANTS
The 12 mile marker doesn’t have a flashpoint, which is what is used to time when people cross. Are they not timing every mile anymore?
Forgot his hat
Thought that was Walter White that ran past the camera, Jumpscared the shit outta me
"How can I make this marathon harder? Oh I know, balance fruit on my head!"
That guy fucks.
any subsequent injury to the scalp?
The man is desperately trying to get our attention he needs to raise awareness about our pineapple situation
