Vikings Fan Smashes Coffee Table During Loss to the Packers (Video)
One of the strangest phenomenon’s to pop up in the sports world in recent years (besides the employment of Rex Ryan) is the fan reaction video.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s the deal: it’s now pretty common for hardcore sports nuts to film themselves watching big games to catch their reaction to exciting or improbable plays. Then they edit the footage and upload it to YouTube.
Why do they do this? Well, as a hardcore sports nut myself, I can understand why they would want to catch their reaction in case something legendary happens. You can watch the video any time you want and take yourself back to that happy moment. But I have no idea why anyone would want to upload a video of themselves going nuts to YouTube.
However, now it’s a thing. And today we have a video of a very upset Minnesota Vikings fan watching his team lose their NFC Wild Card playoff game to the Green Bay Packers on Saturday.
Take a look:
Now, I could point out the obvious (namely, that this scene was almost certainly staged), but for the sake of argument let’s just go with it and say it’s legit. Would you upload a video of yourself smashing a piece of furniture over a game to YouTube?
