Ray Lewis: WTF is Deer Antler Spray?

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Deer Antler Spray is the new blood doping! That’s right. Deer. Antler. Spray. Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens is being accused of using the stuff just days before the big game. But what is it exactly and does it actually do anything?

People are weird.

Tiger penis :3

techmonkey74 January 31, 2013 - 10:20 PM

What about LIGER penis?

LynneSkysong January 31, 2013 - 10:44 PM

That would most likely be a folk remedy for birth control. Ligers are hybrids can't reproduce.

Let us know if you start growing hooves. -Anthony

I click for the science, but stay for the Tiger Penis!

Seeker February 1, 2013 - 12:01 AM

Those allow you to throw lightning from your nostrils. -Anthony

A majestically plumed bird brings it to the window of my study each morning on a parchment scroll that he grips in his mighty yet beautiful talons.

Also, we've got a great editorial team. All of us scour the Internet and then we have morning meetings to decide what to cover every day. -Anthony

I am loving the new haircut and clothes, Anthony.

These episodes need to be about two times longer! I can't get my fix of DNews in just three minutes!

Seeker February 1, 2013 - 2:50 AM

Surely having two episodes a day makes up for that in some small way? ;) -Anthony

Anastasiya Popova February 1, 2013 - 4:01 AM

Tiger penis ;)

Pirate Wizard February 1, 2013 - 4:26 AM

So both of those things happen and that's why there's two videos a day?

Marfeus February 1, 2013 - 5:42 AM

god I love anthony!

Seeker February 1, 2013 - 6:29 AM

Aww, gosh… *kicks dirt, puts hands in pockets* -Anthony

Seeker February 1, 2013 - 6:29 AM

Exactly. We're one half magic bird news, one half business news. -Anthony

mojonacho February 1, 2013 - 7:56 AM

Next time Anthony says "Take, for instance…", I recommend NOT taking.


Matt Kach February 1, 2013 - 10:28 AM

It helps a bit.. However, these videos seem to be on par with the addictiveness of nicotine… and two cigarettes a day would never cut it for me personally.. lol

BubblegumAllTheWayDown February 1, 2013 - 1:13 PM

I love me some tiger penis

BubblegumAllTheWayDown February 1, 2013 - 1:17 PM

Not only does it allow you to throw lightning but you grow a hand out of your nose? That is impressive

ZenEditsHD February 2, 2013 - 9:15 PM

omg im from new zealand

Marcus ingram February 2, 2013 - 11:02 PM

I dated a girl who strongly believed in "Thai crystal" deodorant…Which seemed to work fine during winter months.

M B February 3, 2013 - 1:39 AM

So Ray Lewis killed a woman AND Bambi's mom? Sheeeeeeiiit

Chairface Chippendale February 3, 2013 - 4:31 AM

This channel is awesome.

Goofcat February 6, 2013 - 3:18 AM

there is not enough evidence behind the "murder."

Kick-Ass Fitness & Martial Arts February 13, 2013 - 8:35 AM

It just sounds like it helps your muscles recover quicker and could possibly prevent injury

Endre Kråkevik April 23, 2013 - 1:53 AM

Hi my name is Totalbuiscuit and I'm here to ask and answer one simple question, WTF is Deer Antler Spray?

Jacob Daugherty July 13, 2013 - 8:58 PM

A drug that doesn't do shit.

Jacob Daugherty July 13, 2013 - 8:59 PM

Ray lewis isn't on deer antler spray because the drug is so inneffective compared to so many others that are cheaper. All pro athletes dope, but he's not using this.

TheVeR01 July 19, 2013 - 7:14 AM

when he talked about rhinos killed to remedy bullshit, I got all sad. White rhinos are gonna be extinct in a bit here >:'c

Moonie July 23, 2013 - 11:35 PM

"Or is it all just a load of tiger penis?" Hahahaha xD
Anthony, you are a character :)

Lynn Davis August 8, 2013 - 2:46 PM

I know a lot of 'folk' medicine IS superstitious/groundless, but a lot of it does work. You say that it doesn't count because it isn't scientifically backed (kind of like the okapi didn't exist until white men saw it). But how did most natural cures get discovered? Trial and error and repetition – just like science. Ridicule all you want, but people die all the time waiting for science to cure them with synthetic drugs when the cures already exist in nature. (I do not support tiger penis cures:)

Flamingbrik September 3, 2013 - 6:30 AM

It's all about tiger blood.

QueenOfTheDeck September 17, 2013 - 8:10 AM

1:40 deer horn? wtf?

Servals December 18, 2013 - 9:56 AM

Pfft, why would people want to eat animal parts? I heard humans taste like pork; and the marrow is like cool ranch Doritos.  

Quinn Robinson October 22, 2019 - 6:56 AM

This man is full of humor. Huge professional Troll lmao

Snehal Krishnan March 10, 2020 - 3:06 PM

Will this give me the strength of 10 men?

Richard Eshleman May 18, 2020 - 10:53 AM

I honestly just ordered some. I want to give it a shot. At least it's just a part of antlers and not an animals penis. So ya know it's better in that aspect. Worth a shot.

Ann Oxley May 7, 2021 - 5:14 PM

In South America they use Rams horn to cure infertility…and it works!
