Danger afoot: Cheerleader kicks self in head, drops like a sack of fish (video)

May 22, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT


Uploaded to YouTube under the title ‘Cheerleaders will be Cheerleaders’, here’s an unfortunate lass practicing a routine on an athletic field, and her high kick goes a little too high. Hard to tell if she kicked herself in the head with her knee or her foot. Either way, it’s a rather embarrassing fail, and a reminder that the concussion epidemic is not confined to football players.


Totally unrelated fact that doesn’t prove anything: she appears to be blonde.

    Looking at frame by frame, it seems she slipped while kicking, the knee came close and might hit her, but she was going the wrong way before the kick was at apex.

      “You know how I know you’re g…..? They way you break down cheerleader moves.”

        No, I’m not a guy (I assume that’s what you meant, since my boyfriend knows way more about cheerleaders than me).

    OUCH, in so many ways.

    She never connects… Just slips and falls.

    She looked good doing it, though. That’s the main thing.

    We knew society was going to fail when they started considering cheerleading a real sport.
