- [Narrator] Professional dart players
definitely don't look like typical athletes.
In fact, they pretty much all
look like your best friends dads.
Except for maybe darts clown,
whose actual name is Peter Wright,
and his actual name is snake bite but,
we don't have time to get into nicknames today,
that'll be the subject of another video.
Instead on today's episode of Funny Or Die's Guide to Darts
we're gonna play a little game.
Middle aged dad,
or professional darts player.
First up we've got Simon, there he is.
Simon is from Australia, he loves music
and he hates shaving.
Take a good look at that photo folks
and decide is that a middle aged dad
or a pro darts player?
Oh that's right folks, while this does look just like
your friend Kevin's dad who's really into ZZ Top,
it's actually Simon Whitlock.
He's an Australian professional darts player
who sports both a beard and a dread lock rat tail.
What an interesting combo.
Here we have Michael.
Michael is from the Netherlands.
He likes soccer and is married to his wife, Daphne.
He's also got a baby daughter named Zoe.
Now that should be a pretty huge hint,
is he a dad or a darts player.
Ah, that's right, this is actually Michael Van Gerwen.
The number one ranked darts player in the entire world.
He's been playing darts since he was 13 years old
and has won pretty much every tournament there is to win
in the sport, all while looking exactly like the dad
of my middle school bully.
Dustin you still haunt my dreams.
Finally we've got Phil.
Phil here is a 57 year old man from England
and he's also a skilled ceramicist.
Which is just a fancy way of saying he makes toilets.
Is Phil a middle aged, slightly older dad,
or a professional darts player.
Oh, gotcha, all these guys
have been professional darts players.
But to be fair, this is Phil Taylor
and he just announced his retirement.
So I guess at the end of the day, (dings)
he is just a middle aged dad.
