A UK woman recently fell out of a window of a car that was driving 110 mph. How is that even possible, you may wonder? Well, of course, she was filming a video for social media.
While visiting the Antonio Canova Museum in Possagno, Italy, a tourist managed to damage a 19th-century statue because – as you could probably guess – he posed for a photo. The man thought it would be awesome to lie next to the statue and have his photo taken. And when he did so, he broke off three of the statue’s toes.
We’ve seen all kinds of stupid stunts people pull off just to take a photo. Nothing can shock us anymore, right? How about a father who is dangling his young son over a cliff for a photo? Yes, that happened. A man in China was caught on video as he was dangling a young boy over a cliff while another man was taking photos.
A drone video shared online has caused quite a stir over the past few days. It’s a drone footage showing the US Navy Blue Angels performing a flyover, with the drone flying way too close to the aircraft.
There’s not really that much to say about this video from Ryan at Small Moments Studios (which does contain some pretty strong language in parts). It pretty much speaks for itself. He’s been stuck in his house now for 23 days and his business is on hiatus, Why? Well, there’s kind of a global pandemic going on.
His message to photographers is a simple one – Stay at home. Ryan talks about posts he’s been seeing daily in online groups, and I’ve seen plenty of them in the groups I’m in myself, photographers wondering if they should keep going out to shoot clients. Overwhelmingly, the responses are “Don’t be f**king stupid! Stay at home!”.
Russian influencer Ekaterina Didenko recently threw a party that went incredibly wrong. During the party, her husband reportedly poured 55 lb of dry ice into a swimming pool for “visual effects.” This caused him and two other guests to die from carbon dioxide poisoning, and what started as celebration ended in a terrible disaster.
When will people ever learn that this is not only dangerous and stupid but also highly illegal in most parts of the world? Yet again, we hear another story of not just one somebody, but 8 somebodies almost being hit by a train for a photo shoot on active train tracks.
Shot by Virtual Railfan, the video shows a family made up of the mother, father, two girls and three boys, along with a photographer doing a shoot on the tracks in Greencastle, PA, barely being missed by a huge train with only seconds to spare.
Instagram and YouTube star Vitaly Zdorovetskiy was recently jailed after climbing the Great Pyramid of Giza. He claims that he spent five days in an Egyptian jail and “saw horrible things” during this incredibly long imprisonment. And even though his half-witted venture didn’t really meet approval, he claims that he did it all “for a good cause.”
With the number of selfie deaths on the increase with new ones happening almost every week, you’d think people would get smart and figure out that taking dangerous risks for social media just isn’t worth it. Apparently not. A woman has been reportedly been banned for life by Royal Caribbean Cruises after posing for a selfie on the wrong side of the balcony safety rails outside her room.
The incidence of dumb criminals filming and photographing their crimes, or at least being caught on camera by their victims, seems to be on the rise. KTUU reports that a woman contacted police in Anchorage, Alaska last week after discovering a memory card in the street. A memory card which she said contained the video of a homicide.
Two days later, police discovered human remains found near a highway. At the time, police said that the cause of death was unknown, as was the amount of time the remains had been there, and the victim’s identity was unknown. Now, police believe that the victim is the one shown on the SD card, and an arrest has been made.
