So this video basically broke the internet yesterday. Like it went from 8 views to over 100 thousand in about 17 seconds. Which proves once again why the internet is a wonderful/bizarre place. Here people are just sitting at their desks on a random Tuesday trying to figure out a way to waste time at work and BLAMO, here's a random dude dancing and getting hit by an ice cream truck. It's the little things that make a day better and the internets understand that. I'm not sure if I feel bad for laughing at this or not mainly because I can't tell if it's real or staged. Like how do you get hit by an ice cream truck? Every ice cream truck I've ever seen in my life goes 4 mph and blares carnival music you can hear from miles away. But this truck looked like an extra from Speed and as far as I can tell didn't have any music playing! Not going to sell too many firecrackers doing that. Come on ice cream guy, act like a professional for once.
So the only conclusion I can draw here is that these guys set this up? But he does get NAILED so who knows. In a related story I've apparently been examining this thing like the Zapruder film for 28 hours. I=too much time on my hands.
I guess at the end of the day if he legit got hit by this thing he's got at LEAST a year's worth of free Good Humor bars coming his way. If I've said it once I've said it a thousand times; if you're going to go dancing in the middle of the street and get hit by a vehicle, make sure it's an ice cream truck so you can at least get some free treats out of the deal. Getting hit by trucks while dancing in the streets 101 right there.
PS: I wasn't sure if I should blog this yesterday or if people would get offended blah blah blah. But then another guy in the building blogged it this morning so I figure he set precedent and if we get in trouble I can throw him under the proverbial ice cream truck. This is par for the course with me in terms of controversial things. Make sure someone else goes first. Just like the 10 minute rule in elementary school. Teacher doesn't show up within 10 minutes of the bell. You think I'm going to be the first one to leave? Pfft. Let someone else set that trend. Safe to say I would have been the LAST guy to sign the Declaration of Independence and even then I would have probably signed it completely illegibly.
