Remember my post about pro BMX riders Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla and Zach “Catfish” Yankush teaming up with Japanese fashion blogger La Carmina? It was for their new show Strangers in Danger, and the spooky cute author and her friends had quite the adventure in store for the daredevil duo. Check out the clip below:

Saline inflation is a form of extreme body modification that has taken off in the Tokyo underground recently. A saline drip is set up, and the needle is placed inserted under the skin. To learn more, check out this article from Bizarre Magazine.

Catfish and Rooftop also got to experiencing drifting and sumo wrestling while in Japan.

From the Strangers in Danger website

Strangers in Danger pushes these crazy bikers to their limits and beyond. You get to see what makes them cringe, shrink in fear, and curse in pain (since imposing ramps and hard crashes on a bike don’t seem to do the trick). Catch the show Tuesdays at 10:30 PM Eastern on Fuel TV, or check out the full episode on the website.
