Bloke Goes Viral For This Incredible Piece of Forklift Skill
Talent is a curious beast. It can be found in the strangest of places. It might be Professor Xavier’s School for Gifted Children, it might be a busking idiot savant playing ukulele while busting out sums without a calculator, or it might even be this f***ing God of the forklift.
Now, I don’t want to generalise too much, but I’m willing to assume a fair few of you bastards either drive a forklift or see enough of them at work to know that they aren’t exactly known for their finesse. Well, this bloke, the guru king of the tine, can do a f***ing mad little trick. He’s that good he can pick up a dime and drop it into a bottle using only the forklift.
I don’t know if you comprehend how sen-f***ing-sational that is, but I’m pretty sure you’ve seen blokes who can barely pick up a pallet with a forklift.
Seriously, have a go at this dude. When I first saw him put the dime on the floor I thought geez, picking up a dime with a forklift, that’s an ask. I figured there might be a bump in the concrete. But, and I shit you not, when I realised he planned on dropping the dime into the bottle I figured there was just no way.
Check out the tiddlywink style he uses to flip the coin onto the tine. That is some seriously cool sh**. And you know what we haven’t taken into account; his field of vision. I’m guessing he’s got a camera or something on there, but that dime is tiny and this is a rather large forklift. He’s got some skills.
Nevertheless, he f***ing flips it up and deposits it in the bottle with consummate professionalism. I’m not sure the gaffer sees it as professional, but I think even the biggest hardass boss has to appreciate that level of skill.
Congratulations, bloke. Your fork skills are bloody great and you’ve scooped yourself a top bloke nomination. Now do me a favour and bring over one of those pallets of cold ones. It must be beer o’clock by now.
