A funny video on YouTube shows a man attempt to grab a tomato attached by a string through the blades of a ceiling fan with predictably painful consequences.
In the video, uploaded by “Stuntman 89”, the man first explains his trick and then climbs on a chair underneath the whirring blades. As he reaches up, the electric fan catches him on the forehead and sends him sprawling.
The 21-year-old “stuntman” who also goes by the name of Jason explains on his YouTube channel: “I started making videos back in 2002 with an old video camera.
“Although I only used to make stunt videos, I have also gained a lot of experience with filming, editing, acting, and my comedy side throughout the last 9 years.”
Jason’s hilarious and often excruciatingly painful videos have been shown on MTV and Comedy Central after attracting almost a million YouTube viewers.
It’s not the first time stunts have gone horribly wrong – and unlike “Stuntman 89” they were not intentional mishaps.
Last August on the set of reality TV show Fear Factor, a contestant who was strapped to the front of truck as part of a stunt was ploughed into a car after something got in the truck driver’s eyes. The unlucky guest was taken to hospital after the collision and released several hours later with no serious injuries.
