This weekend clips on both ends of the tupthumping spectrum of getting back up (again) after you got knocked down went viral.
The first one is much more wholesome and cute. Enjoy.
That OH to video end kills me every time. While the video does cut off after the loud thump of a baby's skull hitting the ground, as a former baby and someone whose been around babies in the past; let me assure you they fall funny all the fucking time! Many of which will have you worried "OMG this baby is dead!" Don't panic. The vast majority of the time that isn't the case. I'm going to go out on a limb and assume Baby Jamie Harden survived this screen considering somebody there uploaded it to the internet.
The other video is fucking mortifying. Since I read below grade level, I was under the impression that this video was of an actual death. As you'll see here it's anything but that.
After going in thinking this was some best gore type of shit that leaked onto twitter dot com, I was amazed by the sheer will-power and athleticism of this stripper. To start shaking her ass without missing a beat after falling what looked like two stories off a stripper pole is the stuff of legends. She GOT ON HER FUCKING HEAD seconds after the fall.
When you do your twitter research (read the thread) like I did and learn the seriousness of this woman's injuries it elevated this performance to the HOE-HOF.
(only using for the alliteration; I respect the hustle even though I'm not a strip club guy)
You could've very well been reading a text, doing a key bump or getting blown under the table and totally missed the fall and would've thought nothing of it based on the dedication to her craft.
If you broke this down frame-by-frame like the Zapruder Film (classic DOL reference) I think you'd have a hard time finding even a split-second of Genea breaking the fourth wall by showing her pain; which would've been entirely understandable given she nearly broke the actual stage from her fall. Knowing that free fall is 9.8 meters/second you can easily calculate out how high that fall was if you're really curious.
I just cannot believe she didn't get into the fetal position and cry, for even a second! know I wouldn't have been mad at her if she did. Even reporters cry on air. Genea deserves a whiskey drink, vodka drink, lager drink, AND cider drink for showing up all these pussy-ass, flopping pro athletes. We need stat cast break down her launch angle and exit velo because I am still in shock that she's relatively okay.
On a serious note; There is a gofundme for Genea to cover her injuries (that has already surpassed the $20,000 goal) that she explains in a video that I already attached to this blog because I'm a pro's pro (despite only getting paid for one blog in the history of DOL)
I am no stranger to making jokes in times when you probably "shouldn't" and while there is some humorous tones to this blog, what happened to Genea is fucked up and the fact that the club isn't paying for her medical bills ESPECIALLY after her professionalism and dedication to her craft in a time when most people would react in horror again shows the disgusting side of capitalism and lack of loyalty by employers. We really are all just a number. I wish you a speedy recovery, Genea!
They really didn't stop the music, cut the lights, send help...NOTHING. Incredible. Genea is a bad ass bitch.
You are not supposed to film at a strip club. Real scumbag move, but then again it brought this act of heroism to light.
