Man Filmed While Playing in Traffic — Ending in Being Hit By a Truck

I just saw this video on YouTube and no nothing about the back story. It seems to be genuine, but shows a guy messing around in traffic as his friend films him — until he is hit by a truck.

This would make for rather poor evidence if the man hoped to go to court. Assumption of the risk can be a terrible thing.

What is amazing is not only the understated response of the friend and cameraman but his relative slow reaction to respond (his shadow shows him first examining the camera).

Does anyone what happened in this case?

  1. This guy was high as a kite. The pal doing the filming was probably high too. Those blunts and 40s can be murder – luckily this time they just proved to be injurious.

  2. taking that “Stop me and buy one” message a little too much to heart methinks

  3. The video was added to YouTube by an account with no other video contributions. The description on the YouTube vid was updated to:

    The guy is okay, he only broke a couple of ribs and his wrist. NO, he’s not dead. I didn’t shoot the video, merely uploaded from someone else’s Facebook.

  4. And this years Darwin Award goes to…yes, you guessed it…The “Oh Shit man”….

    You think his brother Mr. Lipshitz still owns Zales?

    Police and paramedics respond to call of man hit while dancing in traffic.

    just think of it as evolution in action

  6. I think the oddest thing about this incident is that there were no tazers involved.

  7. Reminds me of the famous line from Union General John Sedgwick who was killed in the Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse after uttering these immortal words:

    “What? Men dodging this way for single bullets? What will you do when they open fire along the whole line? I am ashamed of you. They couldn’t hit an elephant at this dist….”

    ~~ General John Sedgwick, Union Commander, d. 1864

  8. Not only did he get hit, but hit by an ice cream truck. Really? I bet your parents are proud.

  9. I think this is Darwinian Theory at its finest, the thinning of the herd. The man is obviously too stupid to live

  10. You watch your buddy get hit by a truck … you don’t shout out a warning … you film it … you don’t drop the camera and run to help … all you do is continue filming and say “Oh, shit” … then you post it on Youtube? Priceless was sarcasm ….
