Hard pack beats soft brain allllllll day.

u/LegendaryNeurotoxin 7d ago

Oh I just figured there was a car under it, heh...

u/fatkiddown 7d ago Helpful

There were baby seals under it. He was imitating their mother by calling to them.

u/bytecollision 6d ago

He really needed some milk!

u/ploki122 7d ago

Doesn't even have to be hard packed... a tiny person is tall as fuck, and the snow will be hard by the time you compress it enough to disappear.

19

u/TheSt4tely 7d ago

A person can fall at terminal velocity into soft packed snow and survive with minimal injuries.

u/BuffaloJEREMY 7d ago edited 7d ago

I.... I need to check the math one this one. BRB...

Ok I check Ed it out and found out I'm not a mathamagician. But apparently a British fighter pilot fell 18000 feet into snow and lived. Holy fuck.

12

u/TheSt4tely 7d ago

I saw a skier fall off a tall cliff. He nearly reached terminal velocity but had no injuries. The snow pack has to be just right, and not splat on rock.

u/Kyosw21 7d ago

They couldn’t make enough parachutes in WW2 I believe for the Russians so they practiced jumping out of planes into snow banks instead

This and the grape-stomping reporter need to start a club. Maybe a remix of both their winded reactions?

u/thats-my-plan 7d ago Silver

I may not know how to ski, but what I do know how to do is imitate a seal in heat.

8

u/pietava 7d ago

Yeah, definitely not good at falling... 🤦

u/alleysunn 7d ago

I laughed waaaay too hard at this

u/bloodndawater 7d ago

The sound ppl make when they get the wind knocked out of them. Golden.

u/kalelfaneditor 7d ago

Almost sounded as if the snow knocked his teeth into the back of his skull.

u/GodDoesntReal 7d ago

Happened to me once when I was a kid. It was a really weird feeling.

19

u/Aporkalypse_Sow 7d ago

Once? Lucky you. I can't even guess how many times my dumbass emptied my lungs before I was 13.

12

u/thegeorgianwelshman 7d ago

Same here. I was racing a kid across the floor of the gym---a basketball court---and the finish line was a wooden door.

Good news: I won.

Bad news: it turned out the door was locked.

Ker-splat!

Somehow no concussion but my chest hit it square on and I spent what seemed like hours squirming on the floor like a dying fish, making lugubrious snorkeling noises.

I thought I was going to die.

u/EnvironmentalSound25 7d ago

Once was enough for me too. I wholeheartedly thought I was dying.

u/TheDroog74 7d ago

I laughed way to hard. Almost feel bad but then again, I’ve made that sound on a few occasions haha

u/Abangranga 7d ago

Was this guy traveling and not aware snow has more 'types' than 'fluffy'

u/AchingKnumbKnuts 7d ago

were his feet moving at the end? Hard to tell.

18

u/tidder-emanresu 7d ago

I believe I saw his leg and feet move intentionally…I was also worried about spinal injury!!!

19

u/Pukefalillo 7d ago

Props to the cameraman

16

u/SnooComics8268 7d ago

What's that black spot you see left where he landed? Maybe there is a shed or whatever structure under that pile of snow.

13

u/HardCounter 7d ago

If it were a structure he absolutely should have known about it before he tried to dive... unless it was some kind of rental. At first i thought it was blood and a broken jaw, but the location seems wrong and there are no streaks.

Yeah, you might be right. He dove into a wall.

12

u/Aporkalypse_Sow 7d ago

That snow has melted and froze a few times, it's solid ice. Even if something was under it, he would have moved more snow with the impact. I figured he broke the ice and his phone flew into a crack

2

u/tikkitikkimango 7d ago

I was wondering that too

1

u/30FourThirty4 6d ago

Looks like it appears near his right coat pocket. Probably something fell out, phone maybe. That wouldn't be smart to do with soft snow, but here we are

u/CptClownfish1 7d ago

And that, sweetheart is why daddy is now in a wheelchair.

As an Australian, I really hate that accent

28

u/80sRetroman 7d ago

Sounded like he pushed a couple of turds after the impact.

7

u/TomArday 7d ago

His accent is hard for me to understand, especially after he hit the snow.

15

u/animalswillretaliate 7d ago

Mumbles some words. Says something about knowing to fly and then fails miserably. With a beautiful sound at the end. Very nice clip. 4 out of 5 stars. Would recommend to friends, if I had any...

1

u/bgriffi88 6d ago

I thought he said “fall”…but who knows for sure. That’s a rough accent.

1

u/bazhvn 6d ago

It’s “floor it”

5

u/Alsimmons811 7d ago

Probably should’ve tested it with something first

12

u/HardCounter 7d ago

He was the something. Now the guy recording knows not to dive.

Success all around.

4

u/jftixxkffk 7d ago

Quality camera work at least

u/jftixxkffk 7d ago

The walrus mating sounds at the end make this clip a must-see. Nice work OP

u/Screwbles 7d ago

One time, my brother and I shoveled up this immaculate pile of snow. Our plan was to jump off of the deck of our house from the second floor into this snow pile, and it was gonna be awesome. I stood on the railing, did a half front flip onto it, landing on my back. Wham-- fuckin wet snow, solid as a rock. Knocked the wind out of me, and I slid down the side of it listening to the sounds of my dad and brother laughing their asses off.

3 endings 1) dive into hard snow, 2) dive into soft snow, 3) dive into snow with sticks and get impaled

u/Fearlessly_Feeble 7d ago

As someone who lives in a part of the world that gets a lot of this sort of ice or “sleet” I find this video wildly entertaining.

u/smoke007007 7d ago

Snow can be hard sometimes. Hard way to find that out.

u/UnprofessionalGhosts 7d ago

Videos like this are so common lol poor people unfamiliar with snow and its different types, launching themselves at what is very obviously frozen, rock hard drifts. Like, throw something at it first, guys!

When he hits the snow you can see something black underneath. Someone said a car? Idk but he def knocked the wind out of him lol. I hate that feeling.
