If you've fallen in the past 20 years, chances are I can find it on YouTube. Here are some of the most recent clutzes on the Internet.
Lawsuit! Well this is unfortunate. Watch out for that sidewalk. If this happened to me, I assure you no one would jump in after me. If anything, they'd probably try to pave over me as quickly as possible. I don't know where this video is from (I'm sure it says it right on the screen but I'm lazy), but based on the responsiveness and compassion of the cab driver, I am certain that it's not New York.
The Bigger They Are...
Good. Serves you right. That's what you get for being that self-absorbed. Like my great-great grandfather used to say: "Obese people and coffee tables don't mix." I guess she's an OK singer, but she'll need a more reinforced stage going forward. Maybe an ottoman would be more her speed. And how creepily nondescript is this room? I've been in motels with more character.
Even Tupac's hologram saw this coming. I hope this guy was arrested, I wish he broke his legs. What an a-hole. I don't think I'm quite going out on a limb by suggesting that this gentleman may not have been sober. I also hate the people cheering him on, and then acting all concerned when he fell. What did you expect, morons? A super high, drunk, non-athletic looking hippie maybe shouldn't be climbing unstable wooden structures after listening to The Killers for six hours.
I'm not sure what is wrong with this camera, or if this video is real or fake. All I know is that if it's real, and if my wife showed absolutely zero compassion like this woman, I'd leave a trail of Tonka trucks on her path to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I'm not sure that Daddy here is truly a "clutz," or if he just chose a bad path in life. Laughing is fine...but how about a quick, "You OK?"
This video could have gone in a variety of directions -- just take a look at some of the YouTube Comments. Most of them would have preferred to see it play out a little differently apparently, but I'm pretty pleased with the end result. I only wish it was an old-school, heavier rotary phone. OK I've overshot my maximum amount of judgment and meanness this week. Not like I've never gotten wasted and dropped a phone on my face. Oh wait, that's the one thing I haven't done.
So which video is the most painful? Any other embarrassing clutzes floating around the web? And did you laugh or cringe more?
