The Futility Of Existence (aka Drunk Guy Versus Fence)

April 15, 2014


This is 'The Futility of Existence', a video from Youtuber Roman Prag of some dude trashed off his ass and his lifelong battle with a fence. I love how he squeezes through the bars one way only to immediately start climbing back over the other way. It's a perfect metaphor for life. And it's all set to a beautiful piano piece too -- it really is a piece of art. If you're going to watch it though, watch all the way to the end. Then take the rest of the day off and spend it crying softly on a park bench.

Keep going for life in two minutes.

Thanks to JP, Snowblown and Erika, who all agree if this doesn't win Sundance and every other film festival then they're all rigged.

    I watched it all the way to the end on Tosh.0 and almost cried... from laughing so hard.

  • Looks like a "Dave"

    Good thing it's not the fence surrounding the lion exhibit at the zoo.
    (because I heard a story about a drunk guy who accidentally did that)

    "futility of existence"... I don't think you know what that means...

  • Jonny Campbell

    Bravo! Bravo! *wipes tears*

  • Frédéric Purenne

    I've rarely seen such a perfect video on youtube! The delivery with the music was moving and the final was a rush of emotions like no other...

  • Matthew Anderson

    "Don't cry for me, I'm already dead...." <wilt>

    Beautiful. It reminds me of the times as a younger fellow when I'd call in sick to work so I could go get 'day-drunk' in the city...

    *single tear falling* That was moving.
