There was a giant, inky puddle of rainwater indistinguishable from the blacktop of the parking lot right in front of their van, and they were watching unsuspecting person after unsuspecting person step/fall into it and drench themselves from the hips down. Again, at 14 I was humiliated beyond belief, but now I see how hi-freakin'-larious it is to simply sit back and watch (other) people bite it.
So, in memory of that rainy Midwestern night, here are my favorite old-but-timeless videos of people falling:
1. This recent one from "So You Think You Can Dance" (via Lindsayism)
2. One word: numchucks
3. Two words: trap door
And, as a bonus, this still shot, via Planet Dan:
Yes, that is Tony Danza.
