It’s probably rude to think that’s funny, but I seriously thought the newscasters shown after the incident were going to bust up laughing. I say it’s okay to laugh because she only had the wind knocked out of her. Heck, I fell out of a tree once on my back and probably made similar noises when I landed. If it had been caught on tape, it would have been funny to watch after the fact.
In case you don’t have quicktime, here’s a quick synopsis:
It’s boring at first, but the hilarious part comes at the end. Two women are stomping grapes in buckets while perched atop a wooden platform. It’s a contest to see who can produce the most grape juice. Suddenly the journalist says, “Stop”, and holds her hands out like an umpire yelling safe. The other lady stops stomping, and the journalist starts again, but this time she’s going double-time like she’s rushing to win with renewed enthusiasm. She then tries to step out of the bucket and loses her footing, flopping onto the ground and crying out that she can’t breathe.
Then we jump to two journalists in the studio who were watching the whole thing and, while shaking their heads in dismay, say they hope she’s alright.
