We woke up this morning to find the internet in full-blown feeding frenzy mode over a video of some old dear falling down a set of stairs.

All of which is a bit over the top really, because at the risk of sounding like Kanye West (who incidentally must be gutted this morning that Madge’s antics kept his expletive-laden performance out of the limelight) Madonna’s stairset fail wasn’t actually that impressive. At least not compared to this lot.
As the great man himself would’ve said: “Madonna, I’m real happy for all the attention you getting and I’m a let you finish, but these skateboarders have some of the greatest stairset falls of all time. Of all time!”
1) The pant ripper
That’s a nasty sound when he goes down…
2) The full back slam
Don Nguyen goes down hard
3) Try, try and try again
He nails it in the end. And claims it in style!
4) You alright dude?
I’m gonna say he’s probably not alright…
5) The splits
Ouch, that’s got to hurt.
6) The old man
This dude’s probably not far off Madge’s age…
7) Falling up the stairs
Not massively impressive, but it’s amazing how many different ways he finds to fuck this up.
8) Nyjah nails himself
Giving the lie to the myth that Nyjah Huston never falls.
