Crying While Laughing

A few days ago I was eating lunch at a restaurant with a few friends when one of them mentioned a reddit thread about videos that always make people laugh. For me, the video that always comes to mind is the snowball scene in Dumb and Dumber.

The friend pulled out his phone to show us his favorite pick, a short video showing bloopers from a car commercial. A number of things go wrong while filming the commercial, but the highlight is a polar bear mascot who can’t seem to keep his footing on a hockey rink.

Slapstick humor doesn’t always do it for me because I feel really bad for the injured person, but I think I convinced myself that the guy in the bear costume has enough padding that he’s okay. I was laughing so hard in this restaurant that I was crying.

I don’t know if the video will have the same impact on you, but I highly recommend watching it through the end, just in case you get a laugh out of it.

    I didn’t cry but I did laugh out loud! Not unrelated, this one does it for me (it’s after a whole episode of comedy of error type situations): (I could cry from laughing at almost any episode of Parks and Rec if I am in the right mood)

    There’s something about ice!

    That had me laughing out loud, but not crying. I’ll tell you what made me laugh to tears is this and it makes me breathless every single time.
