The YouTube channel FailArmy has made a name for itself by tapping into a fundamental truth about all of us: we love to watch people fail.
That’s schadenfreude, baby. And this week’s compilation of fails doesn’t disappoint. Uploaded to YouTube on March 3, the video has already garnered more than 1.7 million views.
The compilation includes the standard clumsiness associated with skateboarding/rollerblading/really anything on wheels we’ve all come to love watch go tragically wrong for a person trying to complete a trick. You can also watch a guy climb a refreshment stand, only to find himself crashing through it (and likely owing the business a lot of money for his embarrassment) and a little girl nail her dad right in his junk while she attempts to whack a kid-sized piñata. But there’s oh so much more than that.
Enjoy the fails and be glad none of these people is you. And if one of them is you, we’re sorry for your ego.
