'Best Funeral Ever' premiere: Coffin sprint for Olympian Ronnie Ray Smith

best-funeral-ever-coffin-crash-test-run.jpgAttention TV viewers: Here is your chance to watch a grown man tie a rope to himself, tie the other end to a coffin, and run really fast. It occurs on the series premiere of TLC's "Best Funeral Ever," and it might be the most ridiculous thing you'll see on TV all week.

In Zap2it's exclusive sneak peek at the episode, airing at 10 p.m. ET/PT Monday night (Dec. 2), the team at the Dallas-based Golden Gate Funeral home, known for their outrageous celebrations, organizes a funeral for Olympic gold medalist Ronnie Ray Smith. The staff is tasked with figuring out how to get the coffin to run the 100-meter dash at the track-and-field-themed ceremony.

The rope/running thing doesn't go well, but wait until you see what happens when they introduce a bike to the equation (spoiler alert: it's bad).

"Best Funeral Ever" airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
