Drunk Guy Tries To Skateboard Home, And It Turns Into The Most Incredible 14-Second Drama You'll Ever See — VIDEO

Every now and then, a magical YouTube video comes along that makes you say, before you even see the title, "Oh. This isn't going to end well." Everyone, meet Drunk Guy Riding a Skateboard. Drunk Guy, meet the Internet. Let's have some fun. It never ceases to amaze me what people think they are capable of when they're wasted: karaoke, darts, dancing, driving — basically, all kinds of things that are hard enough to do when you're sober, and are downright disasters in the making once you add booze. Skateboarding is a particular head-scratcher for me, due in no small part to the fact that skateboarding sober seems to require a lot of coordination. The video is only 14 seconds long, but in those 14 seconds, you very much get the impression that a lot is going on in drunk guy's mind as he attempts to leave the bar.

The rest...is silence.

Honestly, that skateboard went flying so far and so fast that I sort of imagine it's sentient and there's a backstory there. Check out the video and maybe write one of your own.
