The proliferation of video recording technology has been a boon for everyday comedy. Just think how many side-splitting situations occur in ordinary life that no one would get to see if not for the age of the smartphone.

“It’s only a little electric” isn’t the most comforting advice, but at least it’s true, or these guys would be in much worse shape. Since they can’t touch any of the metal parts without getting shocked, they have to lever the bike off the fence with tree branches, which ends up being more trouble than they’d ever expected. Fortunately, they managed eventually, and the rest of us have three-and-a-half minutes of British-accented cursing to enjoy as a result.
