With the staggering volume of quality Vines out there it's becoming harder and harder for Vine makers to get noticed, leading some to resort to drastic measures.

Take this Darwin Award shortlister, who attempts an unnecessarily risky stunt for which he is obviously ill-prepared, all for six seconds of fame.

"Don’t do it for the Vine," he exclaims after the inevitable happens.

The agony of his defeat is what most likely got his Vine the recognition he so desperately craved, but, in another humorous twist of fate, the OP pulled the original Vine from his account, rendering him totally anonymous.
