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.
