If you can get back up after tripping, shake it off, and keep walking, you're special—but not as special as this unnamed new Internet star: the Taiwanese boy who fell into a $1.5 million Paolo Porpora painting yesterday and somehow got off scot-free.

The 12-year-old boy was on a trip to a Taipei museum, where he was viewing an exhibit called "Face of Leonardo: Images of a Genius" and slurping down a soft drink of some kind. As he moved on from a 350-year-old Porpora painting of flowers, he tripped over the rope barrier and put his hand out to stop his fall, which it did.
