Can’t a man enjoy using an Oculus Rift in peace, fall down flat on his face in the process and not have to worry about the Internet collectively laughing at the comedic misfortune? Perhaps one day, but for now, with virtual reality still in its infancy, videos like the one you’re about to see below are exceedingly funny.
Our faceless hero here is living the good life, or so he thinks. While playing the virtual reality rock climbing game “The Climb”, the gaming environment gets a little bit too disorienting, a little bit too real if you will, and he swiftly loses his balance and crashes down to the ground head first. All in all, it’s a spill that would make Johnny Knoxville proud.
If you look closely, it appears that the Occulus Rift headset actually breaks his fall, allowing our hero to game on for yet another day.
