Yea, unlike the Scotch video, this guy is just a moron. I kinda hope he gets eaten.
What video?

Anyway, I have my doubts about all of these videos. In the garbage bin one, it seems like he goes ahead and throws the lid down, even though the gator is mostly not in the bin. But then he just sort of fits in. And who's recording it? I guess it's possible that a 3rd (or 4th) person is, but we see a bunch of other people recording it too. And nobody helps him out? And finally, the water is like 50 yards from the building. Why doesn't this happen like 10 times a day?

In the beer one, why would the kids know the gator would be so docile and cooperative? And would it be?

And finally, who's recording the guy in the tree? And of course he knows the branch won't hold. I call bullshit.

Given there were a large number of people recording the garbage bin ones, it seems reasonable that we would be watching one of the recordings. The beer assholes were recording their stupidity. But yes a lot of videos you see of people falling down funnily seem staged particularly if not from a stationary home security camera.

I've just become kind-of numb to all the "accidental" videos, because of shows like AFV. You know, a family plans to remodel a kitchen, so before they do the demolition, they think it would be neat to pretend to slip and go through a wall.
