Here’s A Contender For The Best Handshake You’ve Ever Seen

Growing up, maybe you had a handshake with your best friend that you thought was pretty special and unique. Whatever that handshake was, and whatever it meant to you, it should now be considered garbage. That’s right. A rugby team from the Netherlands has just retroactively destroyed your childhood.
