#EpicFailFriday: Standing-on-chair shot goes exactly as you'd think

Every week, the Grill Room brings you some golfers' more-forgettable moments on and off the course. We call this feature #EpicFailFriday.

This video has been floating around the Internet for a while now, so if you've already seen it, then sorry we're not sorry for reminding you of its existence. It's fantastic.

It features a rather bright man, trying to hit a drive while standing on a plastic chair. What could possibly go wrong?

Outdoor patio chairs are risky enough to sit in, let alone make a violent, athletic movement while standing on top of one. Luckily for us, one of his audience members had the wherewithal to pull out a camera before yukking it up as he writhed around in pain.

And because we're good people, we've also provided this week's epic fail on a loop for your viewing pleasure:
