#ThrowbackThursday: Watch Jake Murray’s first ANW submission video

Things got a little weird ahead of season 7.

Since his first appearance on American Ninja Warrior in season 7, we have come to know Jake Murray as someone who will always do the unexpected (Remember the corn dog? The segway?) and will always make us laugh. But even knowing this about Jake, his first submission video might have you asking yourself “What did I just watch?” It’s part music video, part drama, and part athleticism—and it’s pretty spectacular.

In season 7, Jake cruised through the Kansas City Qualifiers with the 5th-fastest time. He fell in the City Finals, but still placed 10th and went to the Las Vegas National Finals. He made it through Stage One but fell in Stage Two on the Double Salmon Ladder to end his rookie season.
