It’s not clear what this German man is saying or what he was trying to accomplish in this video that recently appeared in this story atop the Yahoo! main page, but he certainly succeeded in making a viral video.

Is is just me, or, as you grow older, is it common to feel these sorts of shocks in your body momentarily when watching them on YouTube or on TV? I never noticed it before turning 50, but, in recent years, whenever I’m taken by surprise by something like this, I somehow feel the subject’s pain for just a split-second. It’s kind of weird, actually.
