I just didn't see that curb coming


Steve-O, dressed as Uncle Sam, walks around city streets on high stilts, where he intentionally falls over in front of people and greatly exaggerates his pain to see their reactions.


In the first instance, Steve-O falls over on a pedestrian crossing at a main road. Most cars simply drive around him, but a small crowd of 6 pedestrians gather to pick up Steve-O by his limbs and carry him to the sidewalk.

In the second skit, Steve-O walks over an excited lady, who passes through his legs, but he falls over just after doing so, making it look as if she caused it. Once again, he receives assistance from the lady and other generous passers-by.

Later, Steve-O drops one of his skittles on the pavement and beckons a man on a bicycle to throw it back at him. The man obliges, but Steve-O loses his balance trying to catch it and comes crashing down to the pavement. The man immediately gets on his bicycle and rides off as if nothing happened, hilariously leaving Steve-O by himself in a crumpled heap.

The final skit has another man on a bicycle passing through Steve-O's legs again, apparently causing Steve-O to collapse. The man rides back round to assist, but is interrupted when Wee-Man sprints over from the van and antiques Steve-O, tipping the whole bag of flour over his head before running off and leaving him again.[1]
