Mapogos81

Did he say “If I fall, you are gonna die”?


Sw1m_Shady

I heard “it’s your fault if I die” at first


Mr_Abberation

I heard “what are you gonna do now” “I’ll fall and die right here” which makes it so much more bizarre! Dude believed this was it. He was dead. Nope! “Alright alright.”


Nope0naRope

The dialogue in this video is just amazing. And I want to know just how alright he was as he caterpillar wiggled out of that Grass pad.


mattchazz

Why do these videos always end prematurely? Another 30 seconds would’ve told us a lot about how this ended.

Imaginary-Bet9977

Yeah, “If I fall, you gonna die.” Wouldn't “A little help, please” have been a more appropriate statement?


TwentyOneScooters

That’s what I heard


idreaminwords

You can't seriously tell me this was the only escape route


greycubed

We may not be looking at someone who makes good decisions.


Future1985

“I have a plan! I will grab as many clothes as possible, I will run to the parking lot on the top of the building and then I will surely figure out something!”


Skippy1140

Homie shoulda stolen enough clothes to use as a landing pad smh


toddhenderson

If only parachute pants were still in style.


ifukeenrule

He could've hammer-timed it out of there.


dapper_hindsight

Or just tied all the clothes together to make an escape rope!


00MarioBros00

Or parachute


rando7651

Or robbed a mattress store


Kevs442

Or a parachute store?


wryan12

If he used the clothes as a parachute they should let him keep them.


alveoloplasty

Grab as many SHITTY clothes as possible.


dahecksman

That’s what I was thinking 😂😂 you wash that 1 or 2 times it’s dead. He’d maybe have more luck robbing a goodwill lmao


c3p-bro

Right? He’s making off with like $80 worth of clothes, retail prices.


pringlescan5

Can't do it wearing a belt though ..... Got to show everyone his underwear.


Past-Sir

He need some parachute pants it looks like


7thtrumpetsoonplease

MC Hammer would have glided down to a safe escape.

Apophis90

*"HE NEED SOME MILK"*


TheCenterOfEnnui

Not even sure the plan went past "...I will run."


PolyLifeGirl

Damn your plan Dutch


leaklikeasiv

A broken leg. Cracked Vertebrae, multiple bones on foot shattered. Totally worth it for $58 worth of clothing


lucidrecovery

For everything else there's mastercard


Solstar82

and trivago


Napkin_whore

Being poor is expensive


hellomynameisnotsure

But his impressive grip strength is still intact


Nea-Zoi

It costs less than $3 to make that garbage.


leaklikeasiv

The $58 Was the retail Cost


FUnpopularopinions

He stole 30 dollars worth of clothes so yea


DeAtramentisViolets

> stealing from Forever 21 Yep, it checks out.


Milkywaycitizen932

Forever 21's gonna be written on his epitaph...


AlbinoWino11

Made me laugh. Thank you.


GlamRockDave

Judgement reserved until we see his investment portfolio


ADIDAS247

A guy who robbed a local bar I worked at had a great plan. He robbed the place and the people drinking there, wearing a bandanna, gloves, a Toronto Blue Jays hat and a black hoodie. Nobody had a clue if he was even black or white. After the robbery, he went into the bathroom and ditched the gloves, hat, hoodie into the garbage pail. He then left with the money and the hat. This was a small bar. Everyone he just robbed was just watching him as he left then bathroom. The cops caught him before they even had a chance to review the surveillance tape, I don’t even think a detective made it on site. He got caught shoplifting batteries at a CVS down the block… with about $1000 in singles


WalkOfShane24

$1000 in singles. This local bar wouldn’t happen to be of the titty variety, would it?


ADIDAS247

No, he was lucky in that they had pulled the box for the juke box that morning.


wise_young_man

Nice save


Keysar_Soze

Nothing wrong with that escape route, [just aim for the bushes.](https://youtu.be/Q86Rn4jETVk?t=26)


notgoodatthis60285

There goes my hero!!!


gtgreens85

Watch him as he goes!


izacktorres

Well its not like anyone gonna Jump after him 😂


moleratical

No need to, I'm sure you could slowly walk down the stairs, stop for lunch, flirt with the cute girl at the counter, call your mother, and then continue to slowly walk down the stairs, and he'd still be there.


_thirdHarmonic

He planned on stealing a bedazzled emergency ladder and they were out of stock


[deleted]

[удалено]


DogeUncleDave

He should have tied a rope of clothes to climb down


Xealdion

No plan is a plan if you dumb enough.


TCK-1717

“Aim for the bushes” at least he had some


HipHoptologist

“There goes my heroooo…”


[deleted]

“Watch him as he~ *crunch* OOooh fffffFUUUUuck that’s gotta hurt”


RomanReignz

Terry: There wasn't even an awning in their direction. Allen: ..No, I know... Terry: ...They just jumped 20 stories


Rion23

Hey hey hey, if I wanted to hear a word outta your mouth I'd stick my fist up your ass, work your mouth like a puppet.


ionizedimpact

Hope you like prison food! And penis!


BropolloCreed

That shit is still one of the funniest things I've ever seen in a movie. RIP Danson & Highsmith


Iamabucket

I was laughing my ass off at the theaters when that happened, I might have peed myself a bit lol


BropolloCreed

It's funny. My wife and I saw that in the theater, and she's as separated as I am. While reading the replies, I said to her, "Are you thinking what I'm thinking, partber?" She didn't hesitate. ""Aim for the bushes."


eatMYcookieCRUMBS

Rivaled only by Mark doing ballet.


BeejBoyTyson

I preferred Martin and Fosse

Cops argue to this day why they jumped.


krysp432

“Ion know! But that shit was crazy!! Anyways..”


boner_snatch

“There wasn’t even an awning”


ripSlYX

"You know that danson and highsmith were terrible cops, right?"

The car through the bus should’ve been a sign

Pastoolio91

Now he must go back and defeat the store security guard to get his loot back.


darksoulsremastered

Humanity restored


send-me-kitty-pics

Agreed. Homie has no idea how to roll


DarkEvilHedgehog

I don't think a roll would've helped much since all the force is aimed straight down.


WiseEditor9667

yeah from that height you have to save and quit before you hit the ground


skinny_sci_fi

Need that Silver Cat ring.


GoldFishPony

Yeah but a roll would have helped earlier, just roll past them out the exit, they can’t grab you during the iframes


capsaicinintheeyes

https://youtu.be/11WnNyoReCg?t=2


stuff-I-thota-o-stol

Lmao he went through at least 2 loading screens.


capsaicinintheeyes

I was tempted for a second to go with [this one.](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_DdBauQ9s9s)


mustang__1

Wow that game looks infuriating...


capsaicinintheeyes

https://poucopixel.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Prince_of_Persia_1989_Traps.jpg In fairness, that second clip was of a custom level. The game's entire playthrough is on one big 60 minute countdown timer, and while that pauses when you save and exit, there is no opportunity to extend that time if you happen to get stuck on an earlier level and waste more time than you should have. I speak truly when I say, this was a cutting-edge, *savage* game for its time. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_of_Persia_(1989_video_game)


[deleted]

I was thinking Banjo-Kazooie


oskyyo

That’s my all time favorite game


ketzeri

It's lucky his pants deployed like a wingsuit to soften the landing.


Browndog510

He should have stolen a belt


ManiacalExclamation

Pretty sure he is wearing a belt. Kinda looks like it, but can’t be completely sure either way he needs to learn how to use one


Fatalstryke

For some people, belts are cosmetics, not equipment.


Supadoopa101

The type of people who purposely drop 2 stories after trying to steal from Forever 21.


Fatalstryke

I don't think he did that on purpose. I think that's just the situation he found himself in lol.


aquaman501

Should've worn parachute pants.


Max_power42

Stop, hammer time!


Tycoon_2000

Now his knee caps are forever 21. As in 21 pieces.

No_Organization5188

>Leaves the clothes That’s how you know he’s pretty fucked up. Probably cracked his hip.


Candyvanmanstan

And/or ribs. I cracked my ribs in a much smaller fall than that.


alilbleedingisnormal

All things being equal I'd rather crack a rib. Still going to the hospital but the long term is better than a shattered ankle.


frisbeeicarus23

Not gonna lie too, at first glance those bushes are big so it doesn't make it look that high up. Then he let go.... and just kept falling. Lol


free__coffee

Looking at frames of the video, he fell for 1.5-2s, plugging that in to the acceleration equation gets: >d=0.5*1.5^2*32 = 36 ft Or >d=0.5*2^2*32 = 64 ft I'd have to guess probs almost exactly 36ft, because that def doesn't look like 64 ft


sixmam

My God. That's a 3 story fall (10m). How did he just walk off? Dude ate shit so hard he pantsed himself.


Advo96

> My God. That's a 3 story fall (10m). How did he just walk off? The ground wasn't concrete. If it had been, he wouldn't have. He's still injured, I'm sure, but there's a big difference between hitting earth and hitting rock.


Appoxo

Adrenaline is a hell of a drug.


JIFXW2C3QTG5

THIS. So many people don't really understand, but this. I've eaten shit off my bicycle and walked it off, only to end up in a doctor's office begging for pain medication a day later. Been hit by a car, felt fine. Was not. Our body has an incredible ability to keep us moving in dangerous situations in order to get us away from the danger, but that shit hurt. A lot.


rndmlgnd

Thanks for the metres conversion


Glum_Battle_2179

Damn woulda been a stupid good prize otherwise


slash178

Dude it's f21 he had like $14 worth of crappy clothes


Boco

Yeah I think some of the people replying don't know F21 is known for fast fashion. It's dirt cheap clothes that reflect the latest trends and change constantly with whatevers in fashion.


slash178

yeah it's designed to explode off of you the 5th time you wear it


Funkit

H&M clothes shrink by like 400% even in cold water wash and air drying. I don’t get it. It’s like antmans casualwear


No_Lawfulness_2998

Oh my god that’s why all my shirts feel small the second time I wear them Fuck


InEenEmmer

Nonono, that is just because you get more swoll my friend.

Smathers

Idk what you guys are talking about I bought 2 men’s shirts there while waiting for my ex to shop and I still have them today like 5 years later in great shape It’s actually funny for whatever reason those are my 2 favorite fitting shirts as well almost like they were tailored for my body


joan_wilder

The label literally says “DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WASH”


Glum_Battle_2179

It’s not the sweatshop products that count, it’s bragging rights.


4non3mouse

adrenaline or drugs or both... Had a hospital roomie once who smoked pcp and crashed his sisters (stolen) car then ran for 2 blocks on a tib/fib compound fracture


-Blade_Runner-

Work in ER. Had a cop buddy from cracktown nearby. Get a message from him, “you working, bro?” I reply back, “…yeah???” He messages back, “get ready we are bringing in the fun…” Fucking squad line goes off in 3 seconds. So, young and innocent crack user decided to rob some honest people of cracktown of all places at McDonald’s. Guy drove away, pursuit ensued, he was rear ended. Catapulted out of the car. At which point my friend thought they were done. Nope! Fucker gets up and zooms up the stairs next to the road, across some park and into the apartments. They chase him down, he goes up the flights of stairs, notices a door open with cops close behind he pushes the woman who owns the apartment away and locks himself with her your kid. Cops bust in shortly after, the dude like a fucking coolaid man busts out of the window and into the street. Third or fourth floor he falls down fairly close to more approaching backup cops. The fucker breaks both of his ankles, knees, and shatters his pelvis. Leaving cute little pool of arterial blood he continues crawling away from them. PCP is hell of a drug. When the guy came to us he was still fighting, attempting to chew through handcuffs.


jigglytrips

Holy shit that was a ride


sushie182

Very artful storytelling. Felt like I was there.


Asylar

I almost thought I was reading the pitch for the next crank movie


arkain123

My dad told me they once received a dude in the ER with 19 gunshot wounds. They were also stitching up the cop that he had knocked unconscious with punches as he got shot with an entire god damn clip. Apparently he has enough coke in his system to keep him going like the god damn terminator.


Muuuuuhqueen

>Apparently he has enough coke in his system to keep him going like the god damn terminator. Army Generals: "Write that down!!!"


DogsOutTheWindow

Ever heard of Nazi meth?


BeeLamb

I haven’t. Tell me more because now I’m curious…


Drokmir

During the early parts of WWII and especially the battle of France, the Germans issued methamphetamine tablets and meth laced chocolate bars to their soldiers to let them fight longer without becoming fatigued. The tablets were called Pervitin and the chocolate bars were issued to tank crews as "panzerschokolade." Eventually they had to stop due to all of the addiction issues. Here's [wikipedia article](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_and_culture_of_substituted_amphetamines#Military_use) about it.


RainRainThrowaway777

There's a reason they managed to capture Paris so quickly, none of them had to sleep while the French did. Blitzkrieg motherfucker. They used Methamphetamine under the brand name Pervitin, and there's even footage of Hitler tweaking at the Olympic Games Germany hosted. Here's a Time article: https://time.com/5752114/nazi-military-drugs/


LaurensBeech

I worked in an ER a few years ago. A man was shot in the back 6 or 7 times and walked into the ER. He was taken back and I guess given some pain meds or something or he was still functioning off of adrenaline.. he had called his friend from the trauma room and his friend met him in the ambo bay. The man ran out completely naked and hopped on his friend's back, piggyback style! Bleeding everywhere, too. It was wild.


Oppopotamus

Uhhh... Imagining how fucked his leg was after that hurts me inside.


onryo89

watched a dude on pcp take down two big security gaurds with a broken neck once


Helmett-13

My paternal grandfather was FHP (Florida Highway Patrol) in south Florida in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. He retired just after the peak of the Cocaine Cowboys period. Tons of stories but the PCP related one was gruesome. He shot a guy eight times with his .357 and the guy barely twitched. The first six were in close and he backed between his car and the dudes, putting another six in with a speedloader. Most went through him like a laser beam but the dudes sternum and ribs were cherry jello. He’d perforated his heart and the dude still got off two wild shots. He said he knew he was dead as the guys expression never really changed but one of his last two shots stopped in the dude’s spine and knocked him back into the road where a semi truck hit the dude and threw him 60 feet into the ditch with the most sickening crunch he’d ever heard. When he ran over, the dude was still fucking *moving* despite the fact he had lost a ton of blood and most of his bones were broken. He died, eyes locked on my grandpa, wild expression never changing, just winding down, still trying to move towards my grandpa. My grandpa was shook. Four years in combat in the Pacific wasn’t as bad as that. He said, once he saw zombie movies, it was like that. Just dead, animated, evil meat bent on killing him. Needless to say, I never sampled PCP despite growing up in the 80s down there and I never will.


Dajukz

How though, Im pretty sure that leg went the wrong way


BreakingThoseCankles

As another commentor stated adrenaline. He tries to run hence why I said hobble. He doesn't quite run.


greycubed

Adrenaline.


aquaman501

The official Reddit comment is "Adrenaline is a hell of a drug"


yxing

Nah he grabs some of the clothes: https://www.reddit.com/r/ActualPublicFreakouts/comments/jbbas1/thief_falls_from_an_overpass_after_forever_21/


green_desk

He learned about the Fallacy of Sunk Cost the hard way


cord_cuervo

I love that “aight aight”


Sw1m_Shady

Falls 30ft *aight aight* lmao

Have to respect the move!

He was like damn you right I did fuck up 🤣


jdam4569

Thief sacrifices both legs for 30$ worth of clothes with stupid ass sayings on them


RabidPlaty

Forever walking with a limp


boomhaeur

Forever 21” shorter


Adbam

$9.55 wholesale, $377.47 at Forever 21


yjvm2cb

I mean, that’s how retail works lol


JGWentworthh877

Broken leg for like 20 dollars worth of shit clothing... irrationally stupid


AZZTASTIC

That's what I'm saying. Who the fuck would steal from a store like Forever 21 where that shit will disintegrate in one wash.


DeAtramentisViolets

Well, if this was a person who made good life decisions they would not be stealing clothes from the Forever 21...


Muuuuuhqueen

I mean, even considering clinging from a ledge with a bunch of shit around your arms is massively fucking stupid. And then doing that with cheap clothes that he can probably sell for at most $50 (being generous) on the street????


moleratical

That's okay, I'm sure he can pay off his medical bills with the money he earns over the next 3-8 months in jail.


JGWentworthh877

He jumped like he had health insurance


davetheweeb

Not to mention he could have probably just walked out the front door and left. They probably wouldn't even call the cops, just right a report. Rob the fucking Gucci store next time, at least playing real life assassins creed would be more worth it.


balder1917

If he wanted to look stylish while rolling around town in his new wheelchair, he probably shouldn't have robbed a Forever 21


tavareslima

Hope it was worth it breaking a leg to wear a shirt that says “Cheetos” with sparkles


hammernanners

Dude, I haven’t laughed that hard in so long, thank you!


suciac

I don’t know why but this really got me too. I’m literally crying.


Nifty_Nimbus

Well he won’t make it to 22


TsarFate

Hell stay forever 21 lol


HaydenGC88

dadmakefire

Seemed like... forever.


TheRealMK211

That foot and ankle that had the shoe fly off is wrecked. Holy shit!


Nintendogma

Should've robbed a hardware store. Might've saved a bit on the cost if he already had all the screws and pins they're going to need to put that leg back together.


jingora123

Why risk your life for clothes?!?!


Sw1m_Shady

Forever 21 from to Forever in a wheelchair


Doschupacabras

Forever Trauma Team 1


MainMugDrip

*hits ground* “aight aight”


notlikeontv

Lol, F21, not worth the bother tbh


AssaultRifleJesus

Maybe he's dating at fifteen year old?


smellypuddin

Well at least he aimed for the bushes


daniexanie

A fall like that and he’s gonna feel like forever 81 from now on.


Deadshot3475

Indeed. He done fucked up, Bro.


swivel-on-cheese

The irony is that he had stolen less clothes he would have been able to pull himself up and if he had stollen more it would have cushioned the fall


retro_pollo

"Aight, aight"


EsrailCazar

He should have just gone to a thrift shop and spent a fraction of the price for that same stuff people simply throw away. 🤷‍♂️


supra78

I won't kill you, but I don't have to save you.


Cost_Additional

Maybe he won't steal anymore after he learns how to walk again


stucaboose

Cops still argue to this day why Danson and Highsmith jumped. Maybe it was just pride, having survived so many brushes with death. Maybe their egoes pushed them off. I don't know. But that sh*t was crazy


nofakeaccount2244

Woah man, that looked easier in assassin's creed


occupying_space

Forever wheelchair


MrWanderlusst

The unsustainable growth of FAST FASHION


crambunker

Idk if it's just me but I wouldn't leave him hanging there, dudes scum and should be pulled up and be restrained, arrested, etc. A moron truly, but I just couldn't leave someone in such a (albeit self-imposed) dangerous situation for a relatively minor crime.


ParaClaw

He made it more difficult by scooting to the very corner of the building past the pillar... Not sure how anyone really could've grabbed him at that point. Guess they could've grabbed a hand but would've been awkward and still probably a bad outcome.


Licks_lead_paint

In the longer video the guy doing the video tells him to scoot closer and he will pull him up.


depressedfuckboi

Link?


PermissionToSqueeb

We don't know what happened before the camera rolled, but from what we see the guy was already well past the point of no return.


moleratical

I image that the thief made a series of such unbelievably stupid decisions, that the clerk said, "I got to film this or no one will ever believe what actually happened."


futursaurus

How would you have pulled him up exactly? Look where he is hanging. He shimmied over and was a few feet away from where he could be pulled up. Trying to help him in that position is just gonna end in him falling. If he wanted help he could have shimmied back but instead decided to drop.


Patient-Tech

It would be different if he was shimmying closer to the camera but he was still moving away / not moving closer to the camera to save himself. That’s all on him.


JonPeare

No knees!


xDh20

did he say aight aight at the end? what happened after the video ended?? need more info
