[VIDEO] Exclusive Kings of Con Clip: Some Medieval Practices Should Remain in the Past

King of Con, the scripted comedy from Supernatural’s Richard Speight, Jr. and Rob Benedict, takes you inside the crazy world of convention life. While many would assume it’s the dedicated fans bringing the chaos, this show proves that it’s the actors who are behind all of the hijinks. That couldn’t be more apparent than in this exclusive clip, which features Benedict being accosted by a musty scarf.

The story goes that in Medieval times, soldiers would march into battle with a piece of cloth “soaked in their women’s scent,” and that in its musk, “they found strength.” Right. This odd interaction gets even stranger once an actual musky scarf (not from the Middle Ages, but still packing quite the repugnant fragrance) enters the equation. What would you do if someone came at you with a soiled piece of fabric wanting to collect your scent?  I’m not quite sure, but I feel like there would at least be some dry heaving involved.

If you thought this clip was funny, wait until you see the rest of the show. Kings of Con streams every Tuesday on Comic-Con HQ.
