Sometimes you come across a stunt so infinitely stupid, it beggars belief that anyone would ever attempt it or even live to tell the tale.

This is one of those occasions. It involves one man, possibly drunk, and a giant hay bale that’s rolling down a hill towards him at some speed.

In the accompanying clip, said male attempts to gracefully leap over the oncoming bale with the poise of an Olympic hurdler – think Colin Jackson in his prime.

But rather than pull off the mother of all hurdles he ends up being smashed into oblivion by it and he really only has himself to blame.

With the average bale of hail weighing somewhere in the region of 1,200Ib, this must have felt like being hit by a car, albeit a relatively slow-moving car with a covering of soft hay.

It would have undoubtedly hurt though, with the lad’s shoulders, neck and arm appearing to take the brunt of the collision.

Fortunately, he appears to have survived this most stupid of tricks, which is good – because it’s absolutely bloody hilarious to watch.

And at least everyone has learned a valuable lesson from this: never, under any circumstances, attempt to jump over an ongoing hay bale. It won’t end well.
