The Treadmill Tumble That Left Me in Cackling Tears
I found the video below and laughed so hard that I was shaking silently for about 20 seconds. You know that laugh that looks like you’re sobbing because you’re trying to catch your breath? Yes. That one. Just watch this video (it’s 70 seconds long and gets good around 45 seconds in).
*DEEEEEAAAAADDDDDDD* *plays it again* *HOWLS*
He fell so hard that his sandals flew in two different directions, and his complete fail was repeated as he tried to get balanced. His attempts at dance redemption failed SO BAD. This is so comical that it looks like a cartoon. I was expecting Bugs Bunny to come through and say “Ehhhh what’s up, doc?” This fall, though! He didn’t just fall once either. Nah. His attempt at rebalance made that machine re-punish him. I cry.
When the video started and he strutted in READY to show his friend his sick moves, I just knew it wouldn’t end well. He took off his chains and everything and laid them down to show he really meant business. And then he told the other dude to kick off the music. Dude had plans, yall.
But when he cripwalked his ass unto that treadmill and promptly ended up on his back with his legs in the air, I about lost it. LOST. IT. He lost ALL his various accessories in the process too. Not just his chanclattas but his hat was GONE too. In hindsight, his decision to take off his chains was super smart because he woulda been slapped in the face by all that jewelry. He mighta died.
Here’s a GIF so you can watch it loop endlessly like I have.
Seriously. I am in tears. Just look at him and his preparatory crip walk.
People falling is ALWAYS hilarious (as long as they don’t get hurt). Like this falling graduate who could NOT stay on her feet longer than 2 steps and had to crawl across the football field to get to her seat.
But this dude gets a special medals of fail. Maybe it’s because of his “I’m about to slay this dance” pre-juke session. Iunno what it is but this is the funniest fall I’ve seen yet.
Moral of this story:
Do not rock sandals on a treadmill. Always record your attempts at recreation of an Ok GO video for our amusement. Remove your chains before attempting such dangerous moves. Do not try to crip walk on a treadmill.
Whatchu think of this fall on a scale of 0 to GAHTDAMB!!!!?
