How not to ride: Utah rope tow wedgie



Oh, Utah: A skier at Alta captured footage of a fellow skier in front of him who was vastly unfamiliar with the concept of riding a rope tow. Normally, this might result in just a sloppy fall and a bruised ego, but this guy managed to  straddle the Poma in a position that gave him perhaps the worst wedgie of all time.

And, since this is the 21st century, someone caught it all on video. Prepare to wince.
