epic fails in amateur athletics

Some readers have requested more funny videos, so I’m bringing you another one.  It’s easy enough to find funny videos by searching YouTube, but that usually ends up wasting a lot of time, so I don’t do that too often.  This video happens to be a commercial for Liberty Mutual Insurance called Amateur Athletes.  Normally I’d prefer to link to a non-commercial video, but this one is actually pretty good.  It could also be called athletics gone wrong or epic fails in athletics.

If you’re still unsure about whether or not to spend 30 seconds watching this, here’s what happens: There’s a guy who tries to dunk a basketball but fails in a spectacular way, a guy who tries to do a roundhouse kick but learns he’s no Chuck Norris, and a guy throwing a football that starts a fire in a tailgater’s car.  Classic stuff…  I bet they had fun making this commercial.

There needs to be more commercials where stuff catches on fire…  🙂

    Is that video starring Mango-Man? 😮

    +1 on stuff catching on fire. To make that work, more videos should feature flamethrowers. Maybe I should be an advertising consultant! 🙂 Obviously guys would like these commercials. Women, meh. To get women interested in it, you could say something is on sale for something-eight percent off.

    Some women fall for the “it’s on sale” tactic even in stores where everything is always on sale, even after you point this sales tactic out to them. Maybe you should post a video on epic fails of logical reasoning… 🙂
