Slide Fail

5 of the Funniest Summer Fails

Summer: it’s the season of ice cream, happiness and endless sunshine (kind of…).

It’s also the season of massive, massive fails. Maybe it’s the heat, or maybe people just feel a bit more adventurous, but something about summer makes people commit all kinds of hilarious mistakes. And, fortunately, most of them get caught on camera.

So, as a bit of Friday fun, we’ve picked some of our favourite summer fails for your enjoyment. You probably shouldn’t laugh, but it’s just too hard not to.

Slip N’ Slide

This is a great example of a brilliant idea executed poorly. Oh, and kids: don’t build slides from the roof of your house. Or, if you do, make sure you have a bigger pool.

Skateboard vs. Face

Skateboarding is a sport that requires skill and patience. Unfortunately, this skater has neither and follows up a failed trick by throwing a tantrum that goes horribly wrong. Painful, but very funny.

The world’s worst advert for slingshots

A lesson for kids planning to play with slingshots over the summer holidays: don’t.

Backflippin’ hell, that must have hurt

Woah, look at that backfli- oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear.

The best throw in ever (nearly)

Skill? Check. Athleticism? Check. Awareness of people in the direct vicinity? Erm… The ol’ ball in the face is enough to induce tears in the even the bravest of men.
