Fall-Down-Go-Boom Mic

I’m usually not a fan of the “prat fall” comedy that seems to take off on YouTube. The “random kid kicking soccer ball into dad’s crotch” kinda shot isn’t my sorta thing.

Congratulations again to all of the b-roll.net AWARD winners. Thanks to Jim Sitton of WPTV for sending photos of his award.
