It’s Fun Until Someone Loses An Eye- then it lives forever on YouTube?

Inktober 2020 Day 7

Ah, the endless joy of watching short video clips of other people getting hurt. And it’s even better when there is a compilation of multiple clips.  And then add some snappy music.

The “Wii Sports Resort” meme checks all these boxes and additionally provides perverse nostalgia for our formerly Wii Sports Resort playing kids.  The video is a series of unrelated clips, each representing one of the sports options off the main menu: basketball, bowling, boating, etc., and of course, archery.

Each clip features accidental or intentional injury- one ping pong player throws the paddle across the table at the other. One guy in a basketball one-on-one just plain decks the other guy, a man drives a boat full speed into a post.

It is both mildly funny and seriously disturbing, as the clips range from harmless stumbles to possible fatalities. 

But the clip  in which a bow tie wearing kid, who has obviously set up his phone on the floor to record himself shooting his cool nerf bow and arrow, only to have the arrow immediately bounce back to hit him in the eye, is memorable. 

I am really hoping that the clip would not have made its way to YouTube if, in fact, an eye had been lost (or damaged)
