 Hey Pinkbike, how about a short feature on how to film your mates riding with a phone. Seriously, Friday Fails would be so much better!

 As someone who works in video production, sometimes I worry that my job will be obsolete in 10 years because everyone is a filmmaker now. But Friday Fails always remind me that my job is very, very secure.

 @BespokeTrailMix: also, after effect templates are.... CHEAP.

 If programmers would just make sure that video is disabled when the phone is held vertical the world would be a better place.

 At the very least can we keep the portrait-oriented videos out or in their own compilation? Coincidentally, some of the best fails are from those videos... maybe not a coincidence. Big Grin

 There’s a distinct lack of sympathy this week; more laughter than “you ok’s?”

 It's my firm opinion, that everyone in a sleeveless vest got what they deserved.

 @w0dge: I would quite honestly be more curious about the folks in sleeved vests.

 Real friends keep the film rolling, laugh mercilessly, then scrape up the pieces and take 'em to ER.

 @Woody25: Yea he looked at the camera as if to say, 'is this normal'. That was my fav!

 If you're talking about the one at 3:30 I knew it was fine because Jubal weights 120 lbs soaking wet and bounces 100% of the time

 @j-t-g: 1:54 I laughed so hard

 Never ceases to amaze me how bozos with obvious lack of skill doing pretty gnarly stuff prefering to crash without any pads ...........
  • 14 2
 Well, you gotta start somewhere.
  • 43 0
 @MindPatterns: Yes, but with pads so you can continue Smile

 I am continually amazed at how many people are absolutely committed to their fail even before things started going south, physics-wise.

 Dub these with Loris Vergier's sound effects and we have a winning combination. "Shuup, shuup, waaaah!!!", added bonus content would be cuts to a bemused Jordi.

 Ultimate bike pride, at 3.15... He just didn't want to scratch that Santa!

 He could be part of 50/01! Nose manual to feeble berm grind!!

 The guy who crashed on cable drop? What in the hell went through your head thinking you gotta go 20mph for a drop 5 feet out lol. That’s also such a Joey killer. They get all hyped up and over shoot the piss outa it

 Massive fails on behalf of the people either taking the shots in portrait mode or those who focus on the dirt as the subject of focus.

 Every ending of Friday falls should be a camera take out, that was a nice touch.

 I guess taking skinnies at speed doesn't work either!

 @dmarsh15: Way to own it.

Your comment brings up an idea: Friday Fails - the Interviews.

@PP: Please describe the scene for us.

@dmarsh15: well I was really amped up you see. So I thought it'd be best to pinner, and off we went. That wood didn't taste very good.

 @fraserw: On that one I would want to interview the dog.

 @dmarsh15: You were tryin too hard... you should've let your Ibis do the job Wink

 When I watch Friday fails, I always find myself wondering how many of these crashes are due to poor bike set up. A lot of people go out and buy an expensive bike but never take the time to set up their suspension properly. Maybe a podcast topic? @pinkbike
