This guy fails at jumping in a pool

This is why we have diving boards.

Summer is a time for cooling off in the pool—assuming you can make it in unharmed.

YouTube user Cole Mackenzie filmed a man soaking up the bottoms of his feet before jumping into an inflatable pool. Naturally, this video has “fail” written all over it in bright red letters, but that didn’t stop an unexpected occurrence from happening and resulting in the ultimate embarrassment. It was almost as if the fates were looking for the best way to ensure that this would make a great, albeit painful video.

(Sorry, this embed was not found.)

From the looks of that water, though, I would actually be happy not to make it into the pool.
