    How to become a YouTube sensation in three painful steps


    Who doesn’t enjoy a good laugh at the stunning range and variety of trips, slips and falls available online? One minute, you’re a clumsy, red-faced blur of whirling limbs. The next, your work accident is an internet hit and you’re the star of the latest viral video.

    So then, how can you achieve such notoriety and enjoy your 15 seconds of fame? Here’s a foolproof guide to cyber-stardom thanks to accidental falls.

    Choose your location

    When it comes to Internet success, location and setting are all important. The first step is to decide the direction you want your video to take, professional mishap in the workplace or a dramatic tumble out in the street? Industrial spillages at work can create the perfect environment for spectacular head over heels tomfoolery.

    Alternatively, when out and about, keep an eye out for loose bricks, uneven paving slabs, black-ice, basically anything that can cause you to trip and slip.

    Choose your victim

    Now your location has been decided, it’s time to select which (un)fortunate soul is destined to live for eternity in GIF form. Ideally, you need someone with a high pain threshold, good flexibility, little to no sense of fear and a flair for the flamboyant. Remember, falls in public often carry more risk due to the greater amount of variables, such as weather and the intervention of well-meaning passers by.

    Lights, camera, action!

    So, everything is ready and a place in the annals of internet history awaits. And you thought it was simply a case of turning up and falling over. A lot of thought and science goes into the best accidents to make them look natural and, well, accidental.

    Genuine accidents are, of course, far from a laughing matter. As well as wounded pride, they can often cause serious pain and injury. For those who suffer as a result of the negligence of others, or simply unfortunate circumstances, help is at hand courtesy of Accident Advice Helpline.
