The next time you get the urge to record yourself singing and dancing in your room, try to stay on the floor. And do your best to avoid high heels and coffee tables. Just a couple of lessons from the viral video Scarlet Takes A Tumble.
2 Minutes Of Song. 2 Minutes Of Pain.
In the video below, 15-year-old YouTube user, PurpleBunny (aka Scarlet), is innocently recording herself singing in her room. The clip is a little long so here’s the cheat sheet: About 2:00 minutes into the clip, Scarlet walks over to the corner and puts on a pair of high heels. At 2:15 she walks over to mom’s 11-year-old coffee table and stands on it. At 2:50, prepare yourself… Scarlet Takes A Tumble. For the next 2 minutes, Scarlet rolls around on the floor in pain. Whether or not you wince in pain, or laugh, is up to you.
Scarlet Takes A Tumble
Although her experience was obviously painful and embarrassing, she decided to post it on YouTube anyway. Scarlet’s decision to share her video has made her a star worthy of a Weezer video cameo. In less than a week, the video titled “Scarlet Takes A Tumble” generated 1 million views.
Scarlet admits in a reaction video that “It was really not a smart thing to do… to stand on a coffee table. Children at home don’t stand on your mom’s furniture.”
