The Internet is awesome for many a reason, but it is especially cool due to the fact that we get to relish in other people’s epic failures. Yes, Bob Saget and his America’s Funniest Home Videos pretty much pioneered that idea, but the Internet and it’s fail video following is now so big that even Bob in all of his awesomeness just doesn’t compare. This morning, as folks pick up their pre-ordered iPhone 6’s around the globe, we have our first iPhone 6 fail video straight out of Perth, Australia. While all of us here in America expected a kangaroo kicked it out of this guy’s arms – sorry, Australian SQ Nation, it was too easy – the guy was just a retard when he opened the box. Thankfully, it was in front of the entire line of iPhone 6 customers waiting outside of the store – oh, and the fact that it was on live TV was pretty cool too!
I’m not going to beat around the notional bush here: I like soccer, and I would love to attend an actual football game with 100,000+ other screaming, drunk fans at some point in my life across the pond, but I don’t follow the European leagues or the MLS here in the States. Don’t get me wrong: soccer is an awesome game, and I even played it basically all throughout high school, but basketball is my favorite sport. That being said, if I were a SportsCenter news anchor, I would have at least made sure I knew what the heck I was about to be talking about on national television, something this fail-worthy anchor completely, well, failed to do.
If you’ve seen the latest Disney animated movie “Frozen”, then you most likely have heard the Oscar Award winning song “Let It Go”. If you’re that guy/gal that’s jamming out to it on the freeway on your way to work every morning, then that’s a different story; we recommend you find help on that little issue as soon as possible. Anyway, this epic fail video will definitely entertain you whether you’ve seen Frozen or not, because it is just plain awesome. I don’t want to spoil it, so just watch it – as in right now.
Okay, so the post title for this video may have been slightly misleading, but you won’t be disappointed. Apparently America is not the only country with pyros, as I can confirm that Poland officially has at least four. Well, maybe only two if that one guy didn’t survive the back blast. More thoughts after the jump!
Advertising vs reality: we’ve all experienced it, whether it was that glistening new cheeseburger you saw on that Sonic commercial last night, only to get a flat, depressing sandwich shoved in a bag by some pimpled kid on roller skates, or that new laptop with a supposed 12 hours of battery life, which promptly succumbs just two hours after you proudly unplugged it. While false advertising is legitimately illegal, there are obviously ways of stretching the truth, from miles and miles of -50 sized white font at the bottom of car commercials, or having 50 million ways to interpret the definition of “all natural” on those granola bars you bought this weekend – companies know it, and so do we, the consumers. Some consumers however pick up on this fact earlier than others, and in this toddler’s case, he’s already raising the bullshit flag.
Trojan condoms are easily the most recognized, and according to CompaniesandMarkets Trojan dominates [US condom market share] with 69% of sales. (Source) No, you immature bastards, that is the actual, estimated market share percentage – calm yourselves. But could they do any better – after all, there is still 31% of the market potentially available for the taking from the likes of Durex, the next biggest player? Of course they could, and that’s likely what every Trojan senior executive has and should have been pushing for, but have they ever done an objective analysis on their own brand name – Trojan Condoms? The good news is that someone already has – hit the link below for the full brand name analysis (and a laugh).
You’ve probably been where this guy is at: you’ve been day-drinking, you’re hammered drunk, and you’re just trying to walk home from the bar so you can take a power nap before you head back out later on that night. Where this guy went wrong however is that he decided to test out a shortcut, only to find a giant steel fence that blocked his drunken path. While I just made most of that up, this is an absolute awesome funny video, and it’s actually appropriately named – “The Futility of Existence“. If this wasn’t staged, then the camera man/woman just happened to be in the right place at the right time to catch this drunk, fat guy fail consistently at every idea he has to try and scale or squeeze through the fence. Bottom line: make sure you watch this all the way through as the end is stellar!

America loves their Fail videos, and this ultimate exercise ball fail compilation video ranks right up there with the best of them. The only thing that’s missing is Bob Sagat and his goofy America’s Funniest Home Videos voices; the awesome 80’s music is already in this one!

Now here’s some great caption contest material. I can’t imagine this is a finished marketing setup; please tell me that they’re going to connect the rest of this guy’s arms? Continue reading “How Not to Sell Nintendo DS’s”
