We rely on our friends at Film Drunk for their dashing humor and for keeping us up to date on all things Steven Seagal. A new article on the website indicates that everyone's favorite actor who has been kicked in the head too many times owns a bulletproof kimono. Yes, you read that right. Apparently a Colombian company is attempting to popularize a line of bulletproof gear for children to wear during emergency situations, spurred on by the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut. Take a moment to absorb the melancholy of all that.
In an interview with the Consumerist, a spokesperson indicated that they've created their defensive clothing for families in the Middle East and the cult action hero from Under Siege. As Seagal's non-career has become increasingly weird, we aren't surprised by this revelation, but juxtaposed with all the other recent ridiculous news blurbs, it's an entirely insane and amazing fact. Enjoy thinking about Seagal's sweaty body swathed in silk and Kevlar all day.
