When you attempt an ego lift at the gym, it can go one of two ways. You either pull it off and you're a hero, or you fail miserably and give everyone a lasting memory of what they just witnessed.
Alright, sometimes it isn't that bad – but for this young man, yes, it really is that bad.
In the video below, a group of friends are in a gym when the guy filming challenges the man sitting on the bench to a $20 bet: to win the money, he has to life a barbell one time. Once. Uno.
"One time, one time only," the cameraman says. "Come on baby, let's see what you got!"
Steely-eyed and clearly thinking of how he's going to spend the $20, the guy lays down and attempts the lift. What happens next will leave you in tears:
Just as the barbell reaches his chest, the poor guy lets out a huge fart that rings deep through the gym. Everyone bursts out laughing (except for the lifter), but the real hero turns out to be the spotter who manages to compose himself from howling laughter to lift the bar off his friend's chest and back into place before collapsing back onto the floor.
We don't know what happened to the lifter, but one can only assume he left red-faced and without the $20.
