“Aaron’s Skateboarding Fail” is probably one of the best fail videos ever! The poor kid tries to record a skateboarding stunt, all prepared for the ultimate act and then he has the “Humpty Dumpty” fall on the stairs.
The video was posted almost four years ago on YouTube but it has garnered views just recently through popular microblogging site Reddit. Posted under the username SaintLeppy, the Redditor claims that he wanted become a professional skateboarder when he was 7 years old.
Though the skateboarding stunt never actually happened in the video recording, people still love what (presumably) Aaron tried to do. His fall, his shoving of the skateboard after the fall and turning off the camera, his conviction; all of it appears really impressive to the viewers.
Check out their comments on Reddit and YouTube:
“Thought I was going to see tears when you came back to the camera...good for 7 year old you wanting to try it again.”
“This video is a great metaphor for most things in life.”
“I laughed for quite a while at this. You just lay there and accept the defeat. That's the best part.”
“I love the little shove of the skateboard after the fall.”
“That post-trauma pause seals the deal.
"DO I CRY? THERE'S NO ONE HERE."
"SHOULD I JUST GET UP?"
"I SHOULD GET UP."
"LET'S GET UP."
Kudos to you for not deleting the footage. Hypothetical young me would erase that s**t immediately.
Whoa! Aaron’s a little (or not so little) internet hero! You can watch his hilarious skateboarding fail in the video above.
