Students Drop Wardrobe Over Balcony Onto Mattresses Hoping It Doesn't Break

November 8, 2017


This is a video from Gurupi, Tocantins, Brazil of a group of students dropping a wardrobe over a second story balcony with the hopes that the three absolutely disgusting mattresses they've laid out will cushion its fall. They fail miserably. I'm inclined to say even these movers did a better job, and I'm pretty sure one of those guys is gonna have to be hand-fed for the rest of his life. But least their sofa didn't break into every single piece possible. Also, no word how these little geniuses expect to return to Narnia now.

Keep going for the video while I speculate just how spectacularly these kids failed the egg drop experiment in physics class.

Thanks to Joseph A, who agrees they should have strapped the mattresses to the wardrobe and THEN thrown it over.

    Well at least they made a nice pile of kindling to burn those nasty mattresses.

  • Michael Wiggins

    knew this was going to end poorly when you saw it was filmed in portrait mode

    Shouldn't they get some sticker removed from their man cards or a suspension or something? It would be hard to screw up moving 1 piece any more than they did unless they simply set the thing on fire with gasoline.

  • Why do men get "cards" but we don't?

  • Hazakabammer

    They cost $1 to make, women only make 70 cents. C'mon, this is simple made up stuff.

    We men held a meeting last year and House Proposal 39-C: An Amendment to the Man Card Act was approved. It states in Article 3, Clause 2, under "Terms for Removal":

    "Upon the complete failure of a traditionally masculine task, the Man Card may be retained if and only if the failure was so complete as to warrant a barrage of mockery and ridicule for an inordinately long and extended period of time (greater than 1 week, less than 1 year, with occasional mentions on the anniversary of the failure event)."

    I know you're joking, but you should write a genuine rules handbook or something. It would make the nebulous concepts of male-male bonding much easier to navigate.

  • Jenness

    This gives me hope. Thank you for your service.

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    Well, we do what we can, as long as we feel like it.

  • Doog

    There's nothing better than 'celebrating' the anniversary of a friends complete failure at something.

    Or didn't. Given how the furniture sort of just fell apart. I think they used glue to put it together.

  • Bling Nye

    Problem was clearly there weren't 2-3 of them down there to catch it.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    looks less like school and more like season 3 of Prison Break

  • Jon

    Surely the effort in getting the mattresses (if they can so be called) there is more than carrying the wardrobe down...

  • Draco Basileus

    5 guys couldn't carry a single piece of furniture down 1 flight of stairs?

  • Hazakabammer

    They could. The truth is they didn't want to. Necessity is the mother of invention. But Laziness is the deadbeat dad.

  • The_Wretched

    Um. Rope? and they missed the 'mattresses' (revolted).
