Bit of a spoiler, what what?
Not for me. I didn’t expect the pool to be *that* frozen.
The thickness of the ice doesn’t square with the greenness of the grass.
I already saw this on Reddit.
Thank you for your amazing contribution to the discussion.
Check out his entire body of work.
“Never heard of him.”
did u see the other thing on there to
Oh man, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, was having a shitty day until now. Thank you!!!
This guy’s love is like a ticking clock, Beserker.
Someone toss him a hammer.
At least he looks good in those shorts, that’s more than a lot of us could hope for
Might be less attractive, but we haven’t tried jumping into a frozen pool, which even without the fail would still be a really fail idea.

This is nothing. Check out How Lithuanians do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r99MiiLcLM0
That was quite amusing, up until the possible concussion :/
Wow. Honestly, seeing someone land arse-first on ice is a lot funnier than seeing someone land head-first on ice…
Plus there was a Lot more laughing from the guy who hurt his arse, and less falling over like he had seriously injured himself.
TIL: Lithuanian is just like really (*really*) profane Russian.
In parts of the US, it’s traditional to shout “Hey Y’all! Watch this!” before attempting this sort of stunt.
Is he saying “mein arse” at the end?
“arsch,” but the word means exactly what you think it does.
“Och, mein arse” might become my new catch phrase for a while.
Thought that the beginning of the video looks like a setup for a porn flick. Put on my headphones, heard heavy breathing and German speech…
I’m not really into scheitzer videos
“It only hurts when I laugh.”
This is begging to become the next DOWNFALL-style-subtitling meme.
Keitel. Jodl. Krebs. Und Burgdorf. Ow, mein arsch!
Cold responds: No, fuck you.
Why Stalingrad didn’t go well.
He may be lucky he didn’t go through. I can imagine some sharp ice shard doing serious damage.
Never mind ice shards – getting trapped under ice is a very effective way of drowning yourself.
What we saw was probably the absolute best possible outcome.
Which, outcome-wise, is not encouraging.
ice, ice, baby!
mother nature always wins. always.
I Laughed Out Loud.
Does that make me a bad person?
I don’t think so. The giggling at the end is pretty infectious, and it shows that the guy probably wasn’t seriously hurt.
This is why I don’t watch Tosh.0, dammit.
This is why I actually DO watch Tosh.O. (Also, because a large part of my 43 year old self has the maturity of a 14 year old)
I prefer Sick Sad World
I will have to check that out! (After I watch this poor guy bruise his booty a few more times. I love his swim trunks – no padding whatsoever.)
Cringe. I did not enjoy this.
The only possible way that could have been made better was if the ice had given way when he hit it with his fist.
Thanks for this video. It made my afternoon so much better. I needed a good laugh.
I was really waiting right up to the end for him to fall through.
Me, too. That would have be sooo great.
This is clearly Flea and Peter Stormare (1:07) behind the scenes on The Big Lebowski. Admirable how they stay in character.
I guess it’s not surprising to know that Steve-O has a Lithuanian doppelganger… I think the rough translation of what he said right after he hit the ice was, LOL I think I broke my ass.
The thought of someone busting their tailbone makes me cringe in sympathy. Ow…ow…
i sprained mine once and it was the most painful week of my life.
Those can be semi-permanent injuries. It should really be avoided at all costs.
I’m pretty sure that’s how grandma broke her coccyx
It’s “Motherfucker, fuck the fucking world, and my new band is called ?Sizkil”. But “fuck the fucking cold” works too.
He should put some ice on that booboo.
Reminds me of a friend, who brilliantly decided to kick the head off a small snowman while passing a neighborhood front yard. He launched a running kick, the head didn’t budge, and he broke his foot. Cold, FTW!
Wife was at a party once where some guys decided to jump into the snow, naked, after a sauna. Trouble was, there had been freezing rain. One torn nutsack.
No. No. No. That just isn’t nice.
I was driving a large truck down a street one wintry day when I espied what looked like a large snowball that had rolled into the lane. I thought I’d do the neighborly thing and bust it under my wheel.
It turned out to be a giant snow-covered rock, and my 4 tonne truck got at least 2 wheels in the air. Wound up completely off the road, on the same side, facing the opposite direction. Exciting.
At the time I thought “Thank flip there was no one around for me to hit”, but on reflection it might have been better if someone was around, because then I wouldn’t have tried it on in the first flippin place.
On the brightside, while his tailbone took a beating, there were a pair of balls in his trunks grateful for the reprieve. Win-win.
Can be quite dangerous for back injuries, but one good ice braking picture seems good addition: http://aadress.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/jaalohkuja1.jpg
He’s lucky he didn’t break his coccyx.
Ow my balls
I think that was the sound of a tailbone snapping.
In Soviet Deutschland ice fucking fucks you.
Ouch, talk about skidmarks!
He needed a smooth talking wingman to break the ice.
He was scooting across the ice like a dog with worms rubbing his ass on the carpet.
Where we live, that’s what we call entertainment.
