January 2011 Fail Video Compilation: The Month In Epic Fails

2011 is off to a rip-roaring start judging by the epic fails of this past January.

YouTube user Twisternederland delivers the month's pain and humiliation with another one of his patented video compilations of people trying and, well, not succeeding.

A new trend seems to be lighting a small firework, walking a short distance away, and then shrieking as an unusually large explosion sends everyone scattering. We do not recommend this.

Stick to the bike tricks, kids.
