Favorites: cat scratch lady, snake man, and the greatest of all: grape stomp.

I think the one where the motorcycle sets the lady on fire is my favorite.
I've never figured out how she catches on fire. What caused that?
I think it was some kind of pyrotechnics. The motorcycle was going to bust out the back end of the truck in a burst of fireworks and for some reason she was sitting on it when they tried it out.
Her name is Anthea Turner. From wikipedia-
"The short-lived Saturday morning children's show UP2U was a flop, and is chiefly remembered retrospectively for a motorcycle stunt that went wrong, which later resulted in an internet rumour that Turner had died. Turner was to stand forward of a truck, the motorcycle would do its stunts, and finally pyrotechnics would be ignited. Unfortunately there was a communications breakdown; at the last minute it was decided that Anthea would sit on the back of the truck, she would also take her cue from somebody behind the camera which, unknowingly to the camera crew, became the same cue used to ignite the pyrotechnics. Turner suffered burns and temporary hearing loss, which led to her successful lawsuit against the BBC. The video of the accident can be seen on various web sites"

Five stars for old man telling the dog to get out of there
A great moment in interspecies communication.

That old man is a hero, and I wish more people would go into gruff hysterics on the street.

the lady that was yelling and screaming about getting the pie in the face was awesome.
and im going straight to hell for laughing at the guy that got hit in the face with the plane, that shouldnt have been funny and I hope he ended up ok, but the noice was classic
Damn, that one's dead, but here's longer clip with a shot of the dent his head made in the wing

"Yeah, put that on the news!"
|jangbones - 2008-04-10 |
very amusing, all

I react the same way to having a lizard jump on me when I'm holding a snake.

Pie Lady and Dog Fighter should get together and make the world's most furious babies.
|RedHood - 2008-04-10 |
I have to say that older Reporter owned that dog pretty much.
|Chancho - 2008-04-10 |
People shouldn't ignore warnings from cats.
|sosage - 2008-04-10 |
They're all good...but dude doing a flip after the sled hits him is almost a Jackie Chan-like set up.
|j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-04-10 |
Comments usually give me a hint for what I'm in for. Not in this case. Just like A Valentine For Complete Strangers, the first ten seconds, seeing some 'roided-out wrassler slap around a reporter, it made my brain snap in grand fashion.
Now I have to watch the rest.
AAAAAAAND it's gold.

Nobody said journalism didn't have its fair share of workplace hazards.
|citrusmirakel - 2008-04-10 |
I'm quite partial to planeface and avalanche.
Also, I'm not about to subtract points for this, but why is Break's default volume level set to "inaudible"?
|futurebot - 2008-04-10 |
-1 star for missing my favorite, the "You're on private property. [email protected]#$!"guy.
+6 stars for everything else.
|Aoi - 2008-04-10 |
-1 star for cutting off the flipping Canadian sled-reporter's amazing instant recovery and continuation of his report.
+6 stars because, well.
|athodyd - 2008-04-10 |
She was practicing her ollie.
|Squeamish - 2008-04-10 |
What happened to the reporter who kept calling everyone a coward? I couldn't see the clip clearly.
Other than that, par excellance.
Pie to the face. Apparently something to get really upset about.
|dancingshadow - 2008-04-10 |
Cat lady's little cry at the end is somehow made better by the quick cut.
|SenilePlacebo - 2008-04-10 |
No Brazilian reporter getting shocked... no private property [email protected]#K!...
Still, I find myself wishing I could give this more than five stars.
Also let us not forget New York Councilman Allan Jennings
|Camonk - 2008-04-10 |
That was like a little cornucopia of just terrific stuff.
|Unsung - 2008-04-10 |
John Stossel getting pimped slapped twice is worth 5 stars alone.
Stossel's been repeatedly deserving slaps like that his entire career.
|chumbucket - 2008-04-10 |
5 for keeping all the "ow ow ow"s after grape stompin
|Gwago - 2008-04-12 |
Jesus. Old favorites revisited, new favorites created. Five stars for the motorcycle stunt alone.
|Pie Boy - 2008-04-13 |
The last one is good because it comes at you sideways.
|A Jumping Spider! - 2008-04-14 |
Hey, you guys don't know what that pie might've smelled like.
|bopeton - 2008-04-22 |
Put on the brakes you stupid women! How can you crash motorbikes that don't even have clutches?
|plaid_knight - 2008-04-22 |
This is wonderful.
|Aquaman - 2008-05-24 |
Old man VS fiesty pooch. Thank you, The Internet.
|caseyt - 2008-06-30 |
This is MY FAVORITE!!! I loved the guy that got flipped over by the sleds!
|Geoff Marr - 2008-08-22 |
|phalsebob - 2008-10-08 |
I'd like to see some follow ups. Did the wrestler get sued? Did they eventually extinguish the motorcycle lady? Did the old man and the dog make up and go fishin'? I need to know.
|MerryMisanthrope - 2008-11-26 |
The Hispanic Lady Throws Water and Summons Her Besuited Goon clip was on the news in LA for about a week--apparently it was some sort of investigation of crooked landlords or something, and one of them didn't like the attention.
That said, the world needs more female anchors + recreational machines videos.
|Dr. Venkman - 2008-12-13 |
oldman vs. dog is an american hero, and needs to be on a shirt shoo'ing that dog away post haste!
|GoneGirl - 2008-12-24 |
The world can be such a wonderful place.
|PurpleXVI - 2008-12-31 |
Why is this only 4.5 stars? HERESY.
|THA SUGAH RAIN - 2009-07-20 |
Say what you will about the motorcycle lady, but the instant breakdown of the cat lady takes the cake.
|klingerbgoode - 2009-12-18 |
Overland Park at the end!
|Nikon - 2010-03-30 |
Exploding reporter FTW.
|sjohnson301 - 2010-04-09 |
Those women aboard the motor vehicles panic.......and their response is, oddly, to hit the GAS!??
I have no idea why, but I'm glad they do.
|dbtng - 2010-05-23 |
Dog of peace.
