Deciding to go through with a trust fall is a bit of a commitment when you’re willing to risk your safety in order for someone to catch you. But in the case of this little girl, it looks like no one was able to catch her in the end.
Given vague instructions on how to do a trust fall, what ensues is the complete opposite. Like Redditor AndyThatSaysNi says, the moral of the story is to trust no one.
“Don’t trust the faller, because she might fall forward. Don’t trust the catcher, because she will laugh when you fall on your face. Don’t trust the guy video taping, because that guy will put your failed trust on the Internet.”
Prankster from RossCreations decided to see how much you can really trust random strangers by putting his life in their hands and challenging them to catch him when he falls. Consider the “trust
fail fall” was quite spontaneous and occasionally from a distance of several feet away, it’s not surprising he landed on his arse most of the time. Only one guy managed to catch him in the end, and the others were plain confused. Let the hilarity ensue!

When I first started high school, our homeroom teacher made us perform an ice breaker called the “trust fall.” The exercise involves putting your LIFE in someone else’s hands by trusting them to catch you when you fall backwards to your supposed demise. Usually though, the person is prepared to catch you, which is good considering you’d fall like jelly to the ground if they weren’t ready.
This dude decides to take the game one step further by attacking unknowing victims with the trust fall. Here’s what you do: Go up to a random stranger and yell “TRUST FALL!” Then simply fall backwards and hope that they catch you. Some people rise to the occasion while others let you fall on your butt. Ultimately though, you’re the one who suffers because you risk a sore behind.
