Oliver Barton’s Top 5 YouTubes Of The Week (6.11.10)

Jon Holland hooked me up with this first clip and I think that as well as being one of the funniest YouTubes I have ever seen, it is one of the most impressive. Jon Holland makes the uberist skate videos and now it looks like he might have the uberist YouTube links!

One of the most remarkable things about this clip is that despite witnessing first hand how effectively the tazer drops this ogre woman from a drunk rage to babbling like a baby, he still demands that she puts her hands behind her back.

It's just as well that the tazer lady was a bit sauced because those shocks are probably pretty uncomfortable. The sauce might have been what put her there in the first place though, here is a compilation of other people who have found themselves in bad situations after a few jars:

Sometimes you just can't avoid getting a bit burnt, news reporters are always putting themselves in harm’s way, this BBC bloke had a great day at work on this day!

The final skate part in this week's Toobage comes as a request from Kyle Leeper. When we used to live out in Barcelona there was a skater out there called Matt Mills who was a narcoleptic homeless skater from Leicester in England who was always at MACBA, he was writing a book at the time, not sure what happened to that, but he's as real as it gets and one of the funniest human beings on the planet. Respect to Greg King for filming. Enjoy:
