Kid's painful audition for Shakespeare play is memorable for all the wrong reasons.

Ready for his big break.

The goal of any acting audition is to make an impact. That was clearly what this unfortunate lad trying out for a Shakespeare production was thinking when he decided to incorporate an acrobatic move into the scene, and wound up going down like a Jenga tower and leaving an impact on the carpet.

Let's be honest, how many people were going to see this production? A few hundred, maybe? Plus, the fact that this kid even had a shot at a part is a sign that it wasn't going to be especially memorable. And that's being kind. Now, his painful fail has gone viral and will be seen by millions. So, in a way, you'd have to consider it a minor success. The scene could also come in handy on his acting reel if he's ever up for a part as a professional wrestler.
