Oh this made me chuckle; which is perhaps a little macabre, since the urban mythology surrounding the clip suggests that the oik in question ended up with an amputation. However, rarely has 14 seconds of grainy footage so beautifully illustrated the wonderful moments when one is punished instantly for one’s actions; and indeed, that the only laws that certain burberry-loving sectors of society should disregard at their peril is the law of gravity!
For context, the received wisdom of this scene is that the wall in question is basically a prefabricated garage block made from slotting gravel-boards into posts. So as well as destroying somebody’s property, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to conclude that it is likely that, upon a more successful means of gaining entry to the garage, theft or further damage would have ensued.
All in all he’s just another prick in a wall 🙂
