Video Bombed!

So there I was a couple of weeks ago, minding my own business, skiing down a run at Mt Hood Meadows.  Hoping to capture some action, I was holding my GoPro camera on a selfie pole, my friend following me down the slope.  I thought I heard a skier close behind, but didn't think much of it, as it was a busy Sunday on the hill.  When I finally slid to a stop, my friend pulled up behind me and said: "I can't wait to see that clip!"

Yep - I'd been video bombed.  Unbeknownst to me, some guy got within camera range and started waving his arms wildly as I was skiing along. 

What can I say?  Guess some people just can't resist mugging for the camera!





Hope this footage brings a smile to your day.

  1. It would have been incredibly funny if he had taken a nosedive.

  10. That's funny. I'd fall if I attempted to film myself. I guess the video from that would be funny though.

  12. Ha ha--that was funny! Glad he did not collide with you!

    Did you see the video of a moose that was running after a snow boarder in Breckenridge recently? I never knew they could run so fast!

  14. It's a wonder that this guy did not take a nose dive with all that arm waving.

  15. Looks similar to the young folk on news bulletin broadcasts outside who always act up knowing it's live on TV but it gets very annoying after a while when every clown does it regularly whenever it's a live television broadcast,waving their arms, or other appendages, around in the background. Just good manners really to behave but I'm a sad resistant type when it comes to fashion trends and any copycat behaviour as I instinctively zoom away in the opposite direction from the masses.
