In most moments of schadenfreude, there's one pretty clear loser: the guy who launches himself bodily at a wall, for example, or the dumbass trying to do tricks on a Segway. These people fail, and everyone -- including the other people in the video -- has a good laugh at their self-inflicted misfortune. Other times, the behavior of everyone involved in the situation is so utterly baffling that it's hard to even be certain whom we're supposed to be laughing at -- and also whether we should be laughing or crying, for America, because we are a nation of buffoons.
Let's just get this right out of the way: what the fuck is going on here? Is this like auditions for the middle-school theater department's fully-clothed adaptation of The Human Centipede? Because if so, gross.
Also, if not, gross.
