This Is What You Get For Showing Off

This Is What You Get For Showing Off
By Liam Godinho

If for some reason you can't see this football fan's failed attempt at showboating, let Reddit user drewsufff explain exactly what happens:

Oh man that's so good. I'm feeling the cringe from here. Everyone's looking at where the ball is going. The ball approaches a man standing by himself. He lifts his leg to try and kick the ball - but not just any old fashioned way, no, he lifts his leg to the side like a skillful player might.

In his head he's thinking I can kill two birds with one stone. I can hit the ball away in an efficient manner and in the same move show everyone around me that I have a bit of skill and coordination, while talking on the phone.

He completely misses the ball - an embarrassment in itself - and then the ball bounces back perfectly to knock out at least one of his drinks.

What should he do now? Does he nonchalantly carry on talking on his phone as if nothing has happened? Does he leave to mitigate the embarrassment and perhaps give him the excuse to buy another drink? Does he stay and clean up the mess while others look on and laugh?

It just wasn't his day.
