Teen Tries to Perform an ‘Escalator Helicopter’; Ends Up Crashing
While at the Colorado Springs Mall last week, Joe Szklarski decided to try the “escalator helicopter” trick he saw someone do on YouTube.
And, as we all know, people attempting to recreate things they see on YouTube are always successful. At injuring themselves and/or others.
“So my friend broke the escalator at the mall,” Joe’s pal Andrew Nichols told 9NEWS. “$3700 in fees.”
Sure, that’s a lot of money to an 18-year-old, but there’s an upside: “It still is as funny as crap,” said Andrew, who filmed the predictable failure, “and I’ve seen it so many times!”
