Holy shit, you guys! That dog checking on him at the end of the video!
My reaction: The fucking dog has better parenting instincts than Ms. Giggles holding the camera.
I blame that kid’s mom for the accident. She probably always mentions when someone’s throwing a no hitter, too.
Mom: “Wow, I can’t believe he might do it! A no-hitter!”
Everyone in the stadium: “SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”
It’s like Bob Saget’s wet dream.
Good lord, I hope this isn’t ANYBODY’S wet dream!

An angel-white lilly-faced boy-wonder front-flips through a trampoline cage, lands unscathed, laughs with his mother, and is cared for by his beautiful golden canine.
Personally, Internet, I’m looking for a better (read: worse) class of trampoline accident, and I refuse to give you any more of my time this hour.
If he weren’t being filmed, that kid would be crying for sure. Does that help you enjoy it?
You make an extremely convincing point, but Science has shown time and again (twice?) that if a trampoline accident happens and it is not filmed, then it never actually happened. Science.
I give him credit for degree of difficulty, but the over all presentation was sloppy, uninteresting, and just poorly planned. 6.5/10.
Oh, please I’ve had it with this elitism for elitism’s sake. This is an original, interesting trampoline accident that may shy away from the mass accessibility of earlier accidents but it’s good in its own way.

I love that the first reaction is to start crying, but then due to the immense power of the potentially humiliating video, he pulls it together and laughs it off. Plus, by laughing, he probably realized that it didn’t hurt that bad anyways. Added bonus, worried dog.
In my own mind, I like to think that knocking this kid through the open door is the trampoline’s way of getting back at people for using those stupid sissy nets around the edges. In my day, we didn’t have those nets, and part of the fun was knowing that you were risking your life for a little fun. How fun can it possibly be when there’s no danger of lifelong disfigurement? Buncha babies.
I don’t really understand how the net helps anyway; you could still totally land wrong on the springs / metal ring and fuck up your shit. It seems like you’d probably be less likely to get injured when falling all the way off the trampoline (like in the video) than when being “caught” and landing on the edge of it
Back in my day, we didn’t even have trampolines. You just jumped and hit the ground.
Back in Colorado my family had a big trampoline on our 5 acres of horse/forest land. The summer after senior year, my friend’s band came up for a BBQ. We invited a bunch of people and there was a bonfire and it was a lot of fun.
THEN the lead singer’s girlfriend dumped him mid-BBQ. He wasn’t much of a drinker but in lieu of recent events he drank a few, went tromping around barefoot and eventually wandered over to everyone taking turns jumping on the trampoline.
When his turn came up he hopped up there and jumped for about thirty seconds before the trampoline— which was well worn at this point and had already sat through ten seasons of Colorado weather without protection— had finally had enough. As he came back down, half of the trampoline ripped away from its springs, sending the band’s freshly dumped front man crashing to the ground.
He was physically unscathed (I think he sprained his ankle slightly), but the trampoline was done for. It wasn’t a party stopping event. Everyone went and found something else to do., but man, talk about adding insult to injury.
We wound up scrapping the trampoline. It had a good run. my sister and I were both in gymnastics through most of our childhoods, so the trampoline had definitely experienced its fair share of actual gymnastic tricks, double-jumping, and games of Add-On, Crack the Egg, etc.
A big homer Simpson DUHHH
oh god he’s doing that thing where you actually hurt yourself pretty badly but for some reason the mix of shock/adrenaline/pain causes you to burst into laughter instead of tears, but eventually as you laugh tears start rolling down your face and then everyone who just witnessed your terrible accident is even more baffled because you are laughing but also crying? and then you get even less help than you would if you had just burst into tears in the first place. surely myself and this random internet video kid are not the only ones?
