Cliff wife can now join the ranks of curvy wife, email wife, and elf wife in the meme-verse.

Shaun McBride, who goes by Shonduras on YouTube, filmed the moment his wife Jenny McBride fell down a cliff.

Shaun later uploaded a video of Jenny recounting the moment she fell.

“I remember turning and trying to grab … grab anything because I literally thought I was gonna die,” an emotional Jenny says. “It just changes your perspective, like even the littlest things shouldn’t bother you cause you never know. Life could change in a split second.

The video includes a disclaimer about material that may “not be suitable for some audiences.”

Of course, the size of the cliff Jenny fell down was brought into question–with some wondering if it even constitutes as a cliff.

People were also caught up on the fact that Shaun was just there, filming the whole thing, while his wife was tumbling down the cliff.

Others decided to meme Shaun’s now-deleted Twitter post about the incident.

Other viral moments of the hour were also brought into the mix, including curvy wife and the guy who made a viral hoax about stealing drugs from MS-13.

Welcome to the club of that good wife-based online content, cliff wife.
