YouTube is a source for a lot of great things, if you are looking for a visual guide on how to perform a task, if you want to broadcast something that you know to the world; like showing everyone your great radio voice or advertise your newest addition to your zoo being a cross eyed opossum.
Alternatively it’s a great source for comedy, whilst laughing at some people’s misfortunes isn’t everybody’s cup of tea; sometimes it just has to be done! There has recently been a video posted onto the popular site that shows a woman walking along texting who falls into a fountain in a mall. It was caught on CCTV cameras and quickly filmed on a mobile phone.
WLS and the Daily Mail are reporting on the video too, they have said that we should all know the dangers of texting and driving, but how about texting and walking? We love the way that half way through, the people filming it are eager to see it from another angle.
Nobody even stopped to help the poor woman as she goes face first into the fountain; she casually gets out and walks off as if nothing had ever happened. The video is becoming a big hit with more than 1,400,000 hits so far. If you want to see it, head to the bottom of the article and see for yourself.
It does make for an interesting case of perhaps bringing in some kind of software that allows you to text and look through your camera, similar to that of the MegaReader app for the iPhone. Either that or just don’t text and walk at the same time.
What do you think of the video? Did you laugh or feel sorry for her? Let us know in the comments below.
