Well done, subby. I watched it 3 times and I will be back and watch it again.
 
2022-01-22 10:58:18 AM  
I don't always escalate but when I do, I do it quickly.

The pink glasses on the "mallcop" make me think she was in on it and just cosplaying..

1. Why would anyone be videoing in that situation? 2. Why wouldn't the guy just go to the next level - why do anything that leads to falling back to where the security guard is?

It looks ridiculously fake to me, but I enjoyed the way he came flying back down.

So the person in the multi-colored pants going up the escalator last just vanishes?

I'm guessing a bunch of kids wanted to troll the Guard/Officer/Whomever and recorded it.

Sounds like something kids would do.

The guard could have just followed them up the escalator, but that requires...ya know...doing something.

That mall cop sure moves with cat-like swiftness.

I thought he was de-escalating quickly?

Idiots on social media doing stupid sh*t for views and to go viral. Luckily a lot of them die/get arrested.

Mall cops in general are just cosplaying so I'm not understanding what you are getting at.

I used to be in loss prevention. TLDR, It does not matter unless you have got enough evidence to nail John Gotti AND Donald Trump.

/ Seriously. We knew a guy was selling drugs to kids out in the parking lot but couldn't do anything about it because it was in the parking lot.

Yup. Pretty heavily edited, and likely set up, but still a funny watch.

de-escalated actually
 
2022-01-22 1:14:15 PM  
From the way the rent-a-cop acted guessing not the first time the kid has done this.
 
2022-01-22 1:21:17 PM  
I hope his pants get caught and a blood bath ensues .
 
2022-01-22 1:22:11 PM  
Reckless endangerment and damage of private prop...ah, who am I kidding I'm still laughing while I type this. That was awesome.
 
2022-01-22 1:24:45 PM  
Interesting side-note for pedants.. the word "escalator" came before the word "escalate"

So "escalator" is actually the root-word of "escalate" rather than it being the other way 'round.
Weird huh?

It's an older sport. Originated by a tribe called the Cheapbeerians.

Is she using a Nextel phone? Also why not go after the guy recording it because he's obviously in on the stunt

I was working at an ad firm once and one day this guy comes in, and he just sits on a couch, babbles for most of the day, plays his guitar. There were two people with him that were just fawning over his stupid ideas.

Who the fark is this annoying dipshiat I wondered.

Dmetri Martin.

Probably, if you discount Will Ferrell and Steve Carell, the single unfunniest comedian on the planet.

On the plus side, I have a nice old chair from that film shoot.

Martin though, he's farking painful like a dime store Michael Cera.

I prefer the fail videos. I expected him to fall go down the escalator on his face.
 
2022-01-22 1:37:26 PM  
17yo me would have done this.

Old me sees bloody fingers everywhere. I've watched several times now and I keep screaming "pull in that lanyard!"
 
2022-01-22 1:40:53 PM  
Glad the kid was okay. He could have wiped out on the way down, and those metal steps would've taken a nice gouge of skin.

Kind of apples and oranges though. If someone comes on to private property and could hurt themselves or others, it's more of a safety and legal liability issue. That kid gets hurt, or hurts someone else, lawsuits could fly.

At least as much fun as Dmitri Martin.

There are two very clear cuts in the video. Which are likely due to the uploader cutting out stuff where nothing happens until the escalator is empty of people/the mallcop does nothing of interest.

We used laundry baskets.  The success rate wasn't great, but injuries were mild.

Going 30mp on a sled would have resulted in more ambulance calls.

I think it's staged, but if I see someone with a sled indoors, I'm eager to learn why.

Escalators will farking shred your flesh.  They kill about 30 people a year in the US and cause thousands of injuries.   Anything that moves that much weight can turn you into mulch.

It's easy enough to do. I know someone who lost half his foot when his sneaker got caught on the final moment before the step disappears.

Editing so the video doesn't stretch out for ages between the action?

Weird that subby chooses some degenerate MAGA chud account to amplify for a lame teen mall prank video.

Young me thought it would be fun to run up the down escalator.  Tripped and wacked my knee on the leading edge of the tread  Bleeding ensued

I had a work project for about nine weeks in New Delhi. I lived in a hotel attached to a mall in saket. Every few days I'd see groups of old village men riding the escalators up and down and laughing their heads off. It was so much fun.
 
2022-01-22 2:20:45 PM  
"I've got my eye on you, kid", said Phil Bart, mall cop. Fortunately a camera was fliming the whole ascent of the kid with the snow board.

You know what this means, don't you. We have the new stupid web challenge for January and February.

Oh I should have mentioned that it was obvious that it was their first time based on how they approached the escalator like they are sneaking up in a leopard. Good thing they didn't have YouTube because they were wearing crocs just as often as sandals.
