I love these videos. Not because I love children accidentally getting harmed (thought I don’t particularly dislike it. I mean I don’t hope for it, but I’m not gonna start a petition over it or anything, you know?) but because they’re such a great example of how we view children in the world. Yeah, they’re the future and all that but do we really care about them? No. This video will go viral and adults will laugh but even the adults there don’t care. It’s not even the separation of a computer screen’s blue glow that gives us the permission to not give a shit, it’s an immediate reaction even if you’re present.
This woman in the back has to literally hide her laughter
The assailant, who is a moderately talented dancer at best, doesn’t even check on the kid he’s just too in his own “OMG did I just do that” world
This lady, presumably a teacher of sorts, comes over and offers a single hand of help because a coffee is occupying one
, undoubtedly muttering, “You’re alright, you’re alright” said to the tune of, “Jesus Christ stop crying.”
And I don’t fault any of them. Don’t get that twisted. In fact their annoyance by the situation makes it all the funnier. Sure the kid will probably have CTE but that’s not gonna rear it’s ugly head for a while so let’s get these laughs in before it happens.
Shoutout the OG…
