You Flinch You Lose (Watching Painful Violin Accidents)


Wow! Pssh… I never flinch. Cause I’m a real violinist. – I practice.
– Yeah. Forty hours a day. Got the viola gang on me. Oh, Check out the merch guys! It’s been a while… – Been a few days since we have plugged it.
– Check out the merch! Do not watch this video with your baby instruments. – Yes. Yeah.
– Hide them it’s not safe for them. Because it’s a compilation of… Sacrilegious torturing. Yeah. And do not do this at home, please. Alright, let’s go. Can’t flinch. We have three lives each. I can already see something’s gonna happen based on the way he did that little dance thing. I’m like, oh… Wow, I think we both just lost a life. – Holy moly.
– Dude, that caught me off guard. – Ooh!
– Ooh! – Like it snapped!
– Ooo! Ooo! Right in the face as well. The way he tried to like, pick it up at the end… Oh, I thought I was ready. I was getting ready for a drop or something and that still got me. I had a delayed reaction. I – I – It like – I didn’t figure out what happened. It happened so fast, I was just like… And then I realized what happened. I was like, no… Wait, can I see it in like slow motion? – Ooh…
– Ooh… Oh… – Is that the bridge?
– Yeah. She’s running right behind him in such a close quarter and that guy just happened to decide to do a spin then. Wow… – That’s just unfortunate.
– That’s – Yeah, very unlucky. – Dude, he asked the girl if she’s okay.
– I know. Wow. What a champ, what a champ. Alright, next. Dude, I don’t know if I’m ready for this. Got three lives! I lost mine just like that. That was too quick. Allegro. Faster. Stop talking. Stop. Stop talking! Oh my god… You know what day it is today? – April 1st?
– Yes, it is. Dude, that for a prank? Dude, he’s so happy. He’s like, yeah, man. – We did it!
– Oh wait, high – – High five.
– We got them. We smash my vio- But he got them good. – Yeah, they were like, Oh my god…
– It really was going… So it’s like… I can also imagine like… Someone that’s been conducting high school orchestra for 30 years, how much you would love to do that. – Just smash a violin.
– Dude, the satisfaction. And like getting the orchestra to stop. But personally I couldn’t do that even for April Fools’. I’ll say I can, but I think in the moment I’ll hesitate and then the instrument just won’t break. I’ll be like… Like swing! In a slow motion like… Tap. Guys. – Don’t do this for April Fools’.
– Don’t try this, yeah. I don’t know, did we flinch? Nah, I say nah. – Nah, nah, nah, we didn’t flinch.
– Nah, didn’t flinch. I – I – We gotta preserve our lives. April Fools’, obviously. Someone goes, “April Fool’s, obviously”. But like he didn’t plan it with anyone. It was just his own thing. No… He didn’t even go like, “April Fools'”. – He just walked off.
– Maybe he came back afterwards. But like… It’s still like… That smash. – I don’t know if I can justify that for April Fools’.
– No, I don’t – We should make a golden rule… April Fools’, you’re not allowed to smash an instrument. Wait, do a slow-mo. Slow motion. Oh! He really went for it. – Dude, look at these peoples’ faces.
– I know… They’re like… Woah! Did you flinch? We both flinched. Yeah, I flinched. Dude, I already flinched. It took her a while to realize. I don’t know why I flinched so much. I think cause it’s a recital. Yeah, I think – It’s – The rehair wasn’t the greatest. And went ka-pah! The funny part is like she kept going. – Yeah.
– And she was like… – She’s like “something’s not right.”
– Am I going deaf? Something is really not right here. You can see her face trying to compute what happened. She’s like – She hasn’t looked yet. So she’s like, “what?” – It’s on her left hand. Yeah.
– When she looked, she didn’t really register. She’s just like… Now, oh my god… – Oh…
– Dude, that’s… – I didn’t expect that, man.
– Yeah. I just laughed, I don’t think that was a flinch. That’s my three lives, man. You can watch the rest by yourself. Alright, I need to eat a potion. Ling Ling potion. – Alright, we gained three lives.
– Oh, okay. I got one left and I got a Ling Ling potion as well. Ling Ling insurance. Ling Ling insurance. These guys need to buy Ling Ling insurance. – Yeah.
– For their instruments. Oh, no… I think the E string… Slipped off the bridge. – Wow, nice.
– Nice, congratulations. I was gonna say that was really amazing playing like… – Paganini is not easy.
– Good start as well. But how did the E string slip off? I don’t know. That’s not a good bridge. You know… That – For that one and the other one… It’s not the instrument that made me flinch. It’s seeing the performers like… I can see on their faces the panic like… – “Oh, no…”
– In the situation, yeah. And that kind of that awakaedness. Cause that could also mess up your… Kind of like mindset of the day. Did you see how quickly, he was just like… – Come on, come on, please fix.
– Yeah, yeah. Yeah, cause you panic. That got me. Ling Ling potion! – I have – I lost count.
– Three. – How does that even happen? The bridge.
– Why? Why? How does that hap – Bet – They must have tuned and the bridge just went way too far in front. I feel like the bridge shape is weird. Look how high the G string side is. – Oh! Yeah.
– It was leaning forward. – It was leaning forward.
– It was leaning – It looked like it was more… Damn, man. Guys… Make sure your bridges aren’t leaning forward, guys. 90 degrees. 90 degrees. I flinched. Oh my god… These are in some ways worse than the instrument destructions. – Yeah.
– It’s just live performance. Look at all those microphones there as well. He’s double hand. He wasn’t sure which hand to use. Left hand, come on. Dude, that’s why sometimes you gotta practice page turns. Yeah. Yeah, you actually do. Oh… You can put that on YouTube now. Now you put that on YouTube now. His friend is like… YouTube material. Were they trying to sell an instrument? Yes. Sounded like he was trying to – sell an instrument too.
– Yeah. Please visit our website to see other violins for sale? Not the violin you want. Ah, Yeah… Check your instruments with your teacher first before you buy an instrument. And if it’s your teacher selling it, check with other teachers first. And or luthiers. Out of tune piano. I’m flinching to the piano already. Nah, I didn’t flinch. I didn’t flinch. – I didn’t –
– I flinched when she – You flinched… Dude, that reaction. Dude, she caught it. That’s epic. I think maybe the tip hit the string or something, right? I don’t know, I missed it. I was just – Don’t flinch, don’t flinch. Yeah. Ah yeah, on the up. Yeah. Well – Well observed. Oh no… – Her reaction.
– It’s pretty funny. – It was so cute.
– I know. – I’ve seen that video.
– Oh, you’ve seen it. It’s pretty funny. Just her reaction is just kind of like, “Oh my god”. She’s like… Her eyes. Like, Woah… – Good try.
– She looks like a beginner. – Yeah.
– Keep it up. – Alright.
– I hope you are still practicing. I hope, whoever’s in that. – And see this video.
– Still playing. Yeah. And she’s like, “I’m actually a soloist now”. That would be sick. Well, did you flinch? – I think I flinched like six lives away.
– I know. With the help of Ling Ling insurance and Ling Ling potion! Whoo, we survived, guys. – Got me.
– Flinched. Dude, that first one still got me. I think the first one just… – Yeah.
– That was probably the worst one… – Yeah, it was.
– Like out of all of them – the first one just…
– Bam! Oh… – And she was like, “what the” –
– Into the face. Well, let’s hope everyone is all okay from this video. – Please look after your instruments.
– Yes No, April Fool’s things like just no. The amount of wood wasted, guys! Yeah. Thank you so much for watching. Please subscribe and like. And we will see you guys next time.

  1. the video at 9:00 is actually the beggining to a family video that shows her practicing through her teens and stuff, its reeaally "lit"

  2. I felt sorry for both of the people involved in the first one, as it's neither of their faults yet they both got hurt in one way or another.
    She got smacked in the face, and he lost a ridiculously expensive instrument.

    Different kinds of pain.

  3. whats the point of this video, if u "refilled" ur lives several times…. next time make it reaction video or what ever, this is so pointless

  4. why is everyone trying to put blame on someone in the first video? like yeah it sucks but it’s just poor timing on both parts. yes there could have been actions taken for that to not happen, but hindsight is 20/20. he didnt think there was gonna be anyone running behind him and clearly didnt see her. she didnt know he was gonna jump and spin because she wasnt there to see him perform and was in a hurry. honestly just bad luck and bad timing on both parts

  5. People here shitting on that lady who was:
    1. Obviously in a hurry
    2. respectfully not crossing between the performer and his audience or elbowing through the audience
    3. Not expecting a fucking violinist to jump twirl sucker punch her

  6. U know ..my sis kicked my cello case accidentally… And i flinched for 40 hours…

    I cant even imagine if she kick my cello

  7. I have witnessed three instrument accidents, one of my friends slept on her chair with her cello, fell and it broke. The other one is when my friend thought his violin case was closed and he was swinging it, the violin fell and broke. The last one is when a bass locker opened and the bass fell foward. Everyone was genuinely horrified, and it was high school orchestra.

  8. Umm… Violins are Baby Cellos. Violins even have a stub where the Cello stand would be. And they eat jello and drink Yellow Mello.

  9. Once my friend was playing his violin and then he was like "it sounds weird". And then one person noticed what was wrong and said "does anyone know what it wrong" and the friend was missing a bridge.

  10. Once during a concert I was putting too much pressure between my instrument and my chin, so my shoulder rest slipped off (I play viola) but I didn’t know what to do, so I continued playing

    everyone saw because I’m second chair, and my conductor was like “Do you need me to stop??” but I shook my head while still playing

    so that was fun-

  11. I feel like the guy shouldn’t be jumping in circles on a public street. But she shouldn’t have ran that close. But idk who to feel bad for. That sucks 😖

  12. my friend came home, we both were learning violin and then she checked my violin tuning, I believe it was already correct. but then she kept tightening the G string until it broke the handle. I froze for 1-minute, processing what just happened before my eyes. That's it. that's my last day learning violin because my parents never buy me a new one, and don't even want to pay to get it fixed 🙁

  13. You should have seen when i was playing my violin then the A string broke right smack on the middle of my performance

  14. 3:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:183:18

  15. If any of those things happen to my violin I’ll be dead.
    But once I dropped my bow, and half of my strings ripped off during rehearsal, but got it changed in time

  16. OH MAH GAWSHH!!!!!! i thought i was the only weirdo outta this thang that played viola!
    i bet some of u probably never heard of it tll u clicked on this or read this!

  17. First one is unfortunate, and you hate it because it's a grandpa that loses his Violin, but the most wholesome part of that video is when he asks her if she's okay because you know that he knows he made a mistake and it wound up hurting someone. I'm sure he doesn't even care in that moment that his violin is broken, just that the girl is okay. And that's what makes it so damn sad.

    Then the second one is like "breaks violin," obvious prank, dude. Expected? No. Do we flinch? No. Because it's so obviously a prank and outrageous that he would do something like that.

  18. I only kind of play guitar, and to be honest it's only a few chords that I actually know how to play, but I know there is a bridge at the bottom of the guitar and a nut at the top of the guitar. If guitars can play sufficiently with a bridge that is basically flat on the guitar, why do violins need a bridge? I understand positioning of the strings so you can adequately "strum" them with the bow, but could you setup your violin to not use the bridge?

  19. Decided to try the violin. Went to the lesson with my violin. Played my first note and the bow snapped. Decided my fate for me.

  20. The first one, The old guy could literally have stood next to the wall and performed and given space to others, it’s his own fault, it doesn’t matter if he is a street performer. If you back or spin into someone it’s their own fault not the one they hurt.

  21. I'd say the April Fools thing would be fine if it was an instrument that was beyond recovery (warped or whatever), or a really crappy throwaway that sounds awful.

    I don't like wasteful destruction videos (those used to be all the rage for electronics. Day one release of a console or phone and some jackass smashes it to pieces for views, stuff like that) generally, but if it's something that's already no good and it's done a laugh, why not? Especially if it's not actually wasteful and is done to illustrate a point or something, like an experiment showing what will happen if you did X to Y.

  22. at 4:12 she realizes, but still thinks: "the show must go on, there are still some strands intact, I can do this"
    4:18 all the lose hairs got around her strings, and she goes: 'nah… '

  23. That guy that's spinning around with his violin while playing… You were asking for it. But on the other hand, that girl just HAD to walk behind someone who's trying to perform? Wth

  24. The bridge in my cello is leaning forward actually. I'm just an amateur and I don't have a teacher at the moment. Do you think I can change it myself or should I let some professional do it?

  25. How about you get that 67$ violin to smash on April Fools? It sounds so bad, the smash sound better then the violin itself.

  26. I got an add for an orchestra store thing called Kennedy violins and I just wanna let google know that I play the clarinet so y’all can be quiet now thanks

  27. 1:09

    Them : OMG oh
    Me : her nose must be broken by now
    Edit : OMG he was shivering i feel so sad he was doing something he loves and that moment never last forever
    I mean its the womans fault
    If there is a show on a street and they r performing
    Then who in their right brain would walk from behind
    Ugh they just wanna be on camera 😒

  28. i didn't even realize that the girl in the first one got hurt i was so shocked about the violin but when i realized she got hurt too i didn't care as much about her as the violin and the man lmao

  29. 4:08 it happened to my friend, she was playing and then it blew up, the whole orchestra got scared and stopped playing and the conductor shouted "why did you stop playing?", and my friend was paralyzed hahahahaha
