Video: Why Interviewing People On Lawnmowers Is A Bad Idea

Getting artsy shots of League One groundsmen sitting on a lawnmower proved to be near fatal for this cameraman.

While attempting to capture a hard-hitting interview with Oldham's groundsman in which he discusses the action-packed thrill-ride of reseeding the pitch before the new season, Dave the cameraman had an embarrassing fall. The Sky Sports cameraman was doing his level best to get a stylish pan when a rogue piece of the vehicle caused him to trip to the ground in a demeaning fashion.


Dave must be commended for his professionalism as he got back to his feet to finish filming. It''s just a shame he didn't use his sudden change of level as an excuse to wheel out the infamous "mythic shot" as pioneered in Irish comedy Intermission over a decade ago. Watching the cameraman fall is extremely enjoyable, nonetheless.
