Warning:  What you are about to see is a vertical video.  In no way shape or form have I or would I ever tout the practice of taking videos vertically.  Anyway, watch the video and fast forward to about the 4:26 mark.

Who doesn’t love watching people fall down.  As long as they’re not seriously hurt, of course.  America’s Funniest Home Videos has been making klutz’s from near and far famous for a quarter of a century.

I wouldn’t exactly say, I fell down in this video, but I did break my reinforced plastic IKEA chair in two as I gently leaned back only to have it give way mid sentence.

Back to my beginning sentence.  Vertical videos are terrible, just plain awful.  We aren’t made to watch vertical videos.  

“What on earth do you mean, Scott?”

Well, check out this fantastic video created by the guys over at Glove and Boots discussing a very real and preventable syndrome.  Vertical. Video. Syndrome.

However, the Periscope app, where you can broadcast yourself live streaming through the interwebs, until recently only allowed for vertical videos to be taken.  I say recently because as of now, with their most recent iOS update, Periscope lends itself to be used in landscape orientation.  Here is a clever Vine that perfectly shows the jubilation on this notable change.  Way to go Periscope!

Oh yeah, back to my mishap, fail, whatever you want to call it.  Good news, and thanks for your concern.  I am fine and was not hurt.  In fact, I now have an acrylic IKEA stool, since the back done fell off.
