Wimbledon Video: Clumsy Cameraman's Fall Draws Laugh from Elena Vesnina

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterJune 25, 2012

Dude, you be tripping. 

Let me throw out a few words of wisdom to the masses. If you are going to trip and fall, try not to do it in front of a cute woman. 

It would also help if you didn't do it during the biggest tennis tournament in the world, leading to a video that continues to grow viral with every passing second. 

One man lost a great deal of ego after Elena Vesnina ousted Venus Williams in the first round of Wimbledon play. 

This feat meant the cameras were going to stay on her no matter what. Was she merely walking to the crowd? Stay on her. Signing a huge tennis ball? Stay on her.

Stumble over something during your coverage? Okay, you can take a break to plummet to the ground like a sensible human being. 

We also have something very interesting to highlight regarding our friend Elena Vesnina.

Every person in the world falls into one of two categories. You could be the kind of scum that laughs the minute someone stumbles or trips. I happen, unfortunately, to be in this camp. 

You may also fall into the category of a kind-hearted person who is more frightened and worried about the fall. 

Gladly, Vesnina is like me and many others who would rather laugh first and find out if anything is wrong after. 

Yay, jerks.

Follow me on Twitter for a chuckle fest.
