    Justin Bieber doesn't get German anyway.

  4. 4

    Well then…didn't think that would happen……………………..hope he's alright though

  5. 5

    holy shit…is he…okay? Update asap!!

  6. 6

    Didn't stop you from making a profit did it Perez?

  7. 7

    So, is he dead or what?

  8. 8

    aldi28 how is this funny? the guy is in critical condition…

  9. 9

    Epic face plant. Anyways, that was seriously retarded to do in the first place. Doubt he's dead but would be nice to know in article.

  10. 10

    Oh hell his dad was driving the car and he his his head on it. I just saw the huge photo of it. Dad must be so proud.

  11. 11

    samuel koch is his name. he is still alive in the hospital, and has regained consciousness but no word besides that thus far


  12. 12

    Okay I have to admit - I laughed.
    Seriously - whose stupid enough to do that?
    Hope the guys okay though

    That was no fake! And for those who laughed - be ashamed. It was hurtful to watch what happened after that accident. Let's hope, he's fine.

  15. 15

    he didnt collide with the car, his jump was off so he face planted. do you ever watch the videos you post?

  16. 16

    Omg! I hope he's okay :| I heard from other comments that it was his father driving the car.

  17. 17

    I'm sorry, I find the german language so funny! I lived there until I was 5… thank god I didn't learn to speak it.

  18. 18

    Nothing funny about it. The show was live on telly here in Germany. For many years this show has been watched by millions. The bets on there are awesome…..extra ordinary things accomplished by ordinary people. All these years nothing major happened. Til last night. Samuel was unconscious after he fell and the producers and host of the show decided to cancel it right then and there. There were no 'sensation press photos', and nobody (espescially the people whom paid big money to attend the show) moaned about it being cancelled. Its been the first time for me, that a television station did NOT exploit a tragedy to up their viewing quota.
    And @ Darav….you are glad you didnt learn how to speak my language (german)? What a statement……at least you would be able to read the news about this now without using Google translator or others.
    Its quite good to know a second, or even a third language. Enhances your chances of landing a great job…….you know…

    He didn't appear to hit the car, rather, he appeared to clear the car, and landed badly.

  20. 20

    German is the best language ever, definitely nothing funny about it!

    The women keeps hollering : "Sofort den Arzt, Sofort den Arzt!!" (doctor immediately!)

  21. 21

    Re: Carmen Trautmann – Well written Carmen! There's nothing to add. And - German is my first language too…

  22. ONIT says – reply to this


    Oh, it's that show. It's broadcasted all over Europe since… ever. The host is so not likeable but stopping his own show that night was a good thing to do. The shows winter break started early and the boy is ok. So what.

  23. Fosca says – reply to this


    Re: Carmen Trautmann – can you tell us how the guy is? it's terribly painfull to see such a thing!
    it's good if the program sudenly stoped. it's a sign of undubitable culture.
    And forgive those whom think other lenguages are just funny: they are silly or arrogant. poor things…

  24. 24

    No wonder they lost the war.

  25. 25

    ehm.. is looks far worse than what actually happened

  26. 26

    Re: Carmen Trautmann – people have to pay to be in the audience for that?

    scary video? i find it mad funny. he's an idiot!

    Re: caroaber – wow. youre not very smart if you post such a dumb comment.

  31. 31

    and that's why you don't do dumb shit for a living.

  32. bvang says – reply to this


    So…. ZDF didn't put any cameras on the guy after it happened, covered him from the crowd, didn't play any replays and what does Perez do?


  33. 33


  34. 34

    don't try this at home…. really don't
    => if you don't listen, you have to feel it ^^

    i've seen it live on TV. at first i was like "omfg" but it did really look funny
    the guy (Samuel Koch, 29) is "alright", but he's in ICU
    and even during the rehearsal he fell two times…

  35. 35

    sorry…. the guy is 23yo

  36. 36

    not only justin bieber was scheduled to appear..take that ,cher,cameron diaz and seth rogen as well -.-*

  37. CKSY says – reply to this


    WTF is wrong with you people? That show was live and that man got seriously hurt. There is NOTHING funny about it.
    His father was the one driving the car, and his mother was in the audience. After the boy crashed, you could hear his father calling for his wife, it was horrible.
    I don't know if he's going to be OK.

  38. 38

    Re: darav2 – Hahahaaaa, and THAT shows how ignorant and stupid many Americans are. There is nothing pathetic about being able to speak more than one language, it is great.
    Over here, most students learn at least English and either French or Latin besides German of course. But many even know Italian and Spanish. It isn't normal to go to a foreign country and talk English, it is polite to talk to people in their own language. On the other hand, I see that you don't seem to be interested in being polite, I can hardly imagine you travelling at all, you don't seem to see the diversity all over the world.

  39. 39

    That's the thing with (crazy) stunts… they CAN go wrong…. "Don't try this at home kids…."

  40. 40

    Re: Carmen Trautmann – That's so true. I remeber watching that show since I was 3 years old and it is amazing to see so many talented people doing extraordinary things. And now that happened. It was absolutely horrible and a tragic thing to happen during a live show.
    He did hit the car with his head and therefore fell. There is NOTHING funny about a young man getting seriouly injured. It was the right thing to stop the show and I am amazed that all of the people were so understanding.

    And it is horrible to see so many of you commenting that this was either funny or fake. It was LIVE and he got hurt, do you honestly think that was planned?! And I still don't see how this is funny. Would you think it is funny to feel guilty after hitting your own son with a car? Would you think it is funny to plan such a stunt and then being horribly injured? Would you think it is funny to pay for a great show, being excited for all of the performers and then seeing a guy unconcious right in front of you, not knowing if he is "just" hurt or worse?!
    For now, he is at least awake and can move his legs, but last night nobody knew if he was going to survive!

    And for those saying he is "stupid" - do you say the same about the stuntmen making big Hollywood productions even possible? No, you don't complain, you just watch the movies and think they're amazing!

  41. 41

    i think the guy is okay. more the less at least.
    but the driver of the car was his own father…

  42. 42

    he is not dead, but he is still in the hospital, but he is not able to speak and we dont have any news so far, but there will be press interviews in 3 hours and we will know more about him. and i think this news is nothing about language or a fake fun. it was a real, tragic accident, nothing to laugh about, even if it was is own fault to do such a stunt

  43. 43

    he did NOT collide with the car! He jumped over it but lost his balance and fell flat on his face

  44. 44

    Re: Karin Putz – Carmen's post is full of grammatical errors……..

    Re: The Pretty Flawless – Last week I was waiting in line at JFK when some fucking Utah kid sdtarted talking to me and he said: "You're in America speak English!" and he would shut up when I told him: "Remind yourself of that next time you go to Europe and expect everyone to speak YOUR language…"

  46. 46

    Now that was funny. What kind of a TV show is this?

  47. 47

    voll auf die Fresse!!!!
    that Gottschalk, does nothing, he's been doing the show for about 30 years, the young woman is asking for a doctor and for blankets so that the people can't stare and look. They stopped the show afterwards, but he is in hospital and is ok now

  48. 48

    he s still in the intensive care unit, there ll be a press conference with statement from the hospital as to his condition, at about 3 p.m. German time (its NOW 1 p.m. here in Germany), i.e. 2 hours from now you ll learn more…
    By the way, Robbie Williams and Take That were present at the show as well …

    Re: OpinionatedasFvckRe: OpinionatedasFvck
    The praise wasn't about her grammar it was about her conclusion. Btw. Could you express yourself in German like she did in a foreign language?

  50. 50

    @darav2: You sound rather stupid saying that you re "proud" of NOT learning the language in the country you had lived for several years…Here in Europe we are "proud" of SPEAKING several foreign languages! :-) Most Germans speak English (and those who went to "College" also French or Spanich/Italian!) as well…we learn foreign languages at SCHOOL! *G*

  51. 51

    Re: OpinionatedasFvck

    Hm…maybe YOU can write, let s say, 20 lines in GERMAN, then I will tell you about YOUR Grammar mistakes! I bet GERMAN grammar is MUCH too challenging for someone like you…Okay? :-)

    Re: OpinionatedasFvck – i think you've done such an arrogant comment.
    i usually read posts full of grammatical errors and often are from english-americans.
    and i usually travel around the world finding american tourists demanding the entire world to speak their language just because they can't speak other idioms.
    this is stupid, arrogant and detestable. like your post, sweetheart.

  54. 54

    He didn't collide with the car! Can we get a slow motion instant replay, please!?

  55. 55

    who knows XO? he suffered an instant epileptic fit. he has a collapsed artery could be fear or, nerve trauma

    Re: Fletcher – Hahaaa, are you serious? I guess you don't notice how ridiculous you are. It's awesome to see that SO many people here feel offended without a real reason and insult others.

    Re: caroaber – And that is even worse. You are soooo clever posting such a comment. Thanks for clarifying that a 23-year old guy who wanted to do a stunt and got seriously injured is the cause of the outcome of the war. Especially since we live in the 21st century. I guess you don't learn alot in your history classes.

    ovum extraction is by any means mysoginist for her increase in sexual interest. she is coma, and stopped being alive in the sense she may not have children of her own. in formaldhyde? dose with heroin $400 per day. the egg in the ovums tubes is given an incision and infected up, reaching the ovuli that then necrotize and die, she will live, breath and be her last known physically, look warm and consequence libido EBITDA friendly to mens

    Even if he'd landed the jump…so what? The trick would have been lame. It's a shame though…he looked hot.

    is this the one Cher has been tweeting about?

  61. 61

    That was so horrible to watch. I though I'm not German I watched it live and I felt so proud being part European. There were no cameras on the kid aften the accident. And they stopped the TV-show. I love America, but I doubt any American TV-stations would ever show that kind of class.

  62. 62

    We didn't see much, they filmed the audience and that chick more then the actual accident. Sheesh!!!!

    luke called for less than three minutes only because i hung up on also. i was like, i want my kelly tool and $39 insulation oh nuclear blanket so i want to run into a naked and forelorne baby mini genia bottle neck and myke luv four times a day! justin bieber looks so much like empire of the sun O.G.C. walking on a dream

  65. 65

    Wow, I can't believe there are actually people who would make "fun" out of this situation! I watched it, and I don't think it is funny at all! I'm quite shocked really.
    The actual bet was, that he would jump off right before the car and twirl over it. It had worked with one car before, the second time, he jumped out of the way of the car coming at him, this was his third try. (As you can see by the different coloured cars at the bottom of the screen.)
    Unfortunately the driver was his father, who had celebrated his birthday the day before … it's just such a tragic situation!
    The ZDF (the German tv channel) says, Samuel was conscious, but had to be operated this morning for two hours. He is stable now, but has been put in a coma. There is serious trouble with his cervical vertebrae — what so funny about that??!?!

    I'm glad this happened on German public tv. They stopped broadcasting as soon as they realised how bad this was …. being German and part American, I just don't see this happening on an American station!

    And to you guys, who think it's not necessary to know any other language/German: You guys already knew all about Samuel and his current condition, right? (irony off)

  66. 66

    Natural selection, people…natural selection… This wasn't a guy that got hit in a crosswalk minding his own business…that would be tragic. This was a stunt by a Darwin Award contestant…the car looked sweet!

  67. 67

    I'm from Austria. This show is very famous in Germany/Austria - i guess in everywhere in Europe.
    I saw it live , and it was very scary .
    they gave a press conference today, and they said the boys life is in big danger.
    He is in a artificial coma right now and he has a cervical vertebra injury.

    And he has paralysis.
    so it's not funny . he's in big danger. maybe he's going to die.

    I'm not a big fan of this show either, but please stop talking stupid things about the boy.
    yeah,it was stupid to do this,but nobody can change it now.
    Think about his family.

    Bad accident…!

    Re: goanddance
    Nothing to be done???!!! au contraire…
    Get on every venue that shows clips of this show to your neighbors that watch it and note that the only people more stupid than the contestants are the audience…and then stop watching the POS…
    As long as someone out there thinks this was just a fluke…the attention seeking, born-to-be-hospitalized will keep trying…as long as there's an audience…

    I played the video without audio and could already tell it wasn't american programming. If it were, we would have seen about 5 different angles of his faceplant and continuous coverage until he'd be in the hospital.

    Even some of the comments left by people living in North America are pretty appalling. There's nothing funny about this, nor is there anything wrong with foreign languages. In case you didn't know, English was nowhere near the first language humans spoke.

  72. 72

    say right side back bone? if the spinal cord is intact ease off anasthesia, replace the section or not, if not take out several neighboring sections or disks, a korean from the south in ney york sank my several inches after a similar procedure when i say him at angels share on th eLES. other limbs injured could cause a serious septic shock if being treated during surgery; anti biotic fever is a good sign so pump him up or throw him in the coffin

  73. 73

    Re: The Pretty Flawless – Not all Americans are stupid I don't stereotype all Germans so please don't stereotype all if us, I hope he's ok it looked bad, I read post saying he's ok so let's hope it stays that way

  74. 74

    Re: Tom Terry

    i guess you are just a little bit to sure.

    but if you think you now everything better - have fun :)

    I'm just sorry for the boy- and his familiy and i think a little respect wouldnt kill you.

  75. 75

    For the record not all Americans are the same there's alot of nice Americans like me and my whole family and friends can we please stop saying Americans maybe say slot of Americans or the ones I've met, idk what it has to do with anything anyway this post is about a guy who got hurt so let's hope he's ok and stop bashing each other, and people saying this is funny are just dumb karma will get them

  76. 76

    Re: Kt_Cooter – no he is not ok - it does not look good at all :-(

  77. 77

    Re: goanddance
    Never said I know everything, but when they put their child's welfare behind doing this stunt..they pissed away any of my respect. Sympathy I have loads of…I hope the kid gets past this..intact. The people posting 'what a wonderful show this is' and 'don't jump to conclusions'???? Fuck you! You were part of the reason this family thought this was a cool thing to try… Of course…now that it's resulted in a terrible 'accident' (that still made it on the airwaves of course)…you feel sooooo bad…until next week when someone else tries something equally dangerous and idiotically pointless to get your attention…and you'll be sitting there on your couch watching and validating it…. Keep supporting those advertisers,suckers!!!

  78. 78

    Re: tarynlove – And if you really read my comment, you know that neither do I stereotype. I said "many Americans".

  79. 79

    The average Perez reader comes here to laugh at others' misfortunes so don't be surprised when it happens.

  80. 80

    I didn't think this was funny at all. It shows a producer's morals when he/she decides not to exploit the sad situation and just end the show. That is the right thing to do. Way to go German programing! Woohoo from Canadaaaaaa

  81. 81

    lol! amay!

  82. 82

    As far as I know he was placed in an artificial coma after a surgery of 2 hours.
    His condition is critical but the docs said he's going to survive.
    He's a professional stuntmen, so there os nothing stupid about that. He felt secure and able to do it, who knew he would fail that bad…
    May god bless him and his family :(

  83. 83

    Re: Tom Terry

    like i said I'm not a fan.
    I don't like the show,I think your rigth , really . But the boy is just a victim.
    and he may die. and i think you should give respect to the boy not the show.
    Because this show isn't "cool" . It's stupid,but the boy is in a big danger-so I think we should just hope for him. nothing more

  84. 84

    He didnt even collide with the car…everyones acting like he died or somethin he just fell. he deserved it for doing that stupid stunt in the first place!

  85. 85

    Re: goanddance
    I fully appreciate that this kid has been seriously injured, but you keep missing the point…. The only way to stop this from happening again (since it's too late to do anything for this boy but hope for the best) is to direct your energy at the source… I'm just promoting putting your money where your mouth is… Feel bad? Sympathetic? Then do something about it… Forward think…not backward…

  86. 86

    Man jumps on his own face to entertain the nation. That's what I call commitment!

  87. 87

    Re: Tom Terry

    i get what you mean.
    and i've always been against shows like this - because they tell you something like this is cool when its totally not.

    but your comment just sounds like you think it's the boys fault alone.
    it's not.
    and i think if you talk about it , whats totally okay, you should give him and his family , which are hoping for his life right now , respect .
    that's all

  88. 88

    Re: TheHangover21

    he may die.
    people do stupid things for money or fame. or just for fun.

    he doesn't deserve to die. so i think you should shut up.

    he's just 23 , everyone did stupid things when they were 23.

  89. 89

    Re: Jaegermeisterin
    So being a stuntman(entertainer) means it wasn't stupid? Sorry…not buying it…
    For 2 reasons:
    1. As a stuntman, he factored in that no stunt is 100% foolproof, and if you perform it enough…you'll screw up… So that means he knew it could happen, just maybe not a failure as bad as that…and he did it anyway… I'm not saying he went into it blind, if that's the case, but then he's even more at fault (himself)…and if he wakes up and recovers, he'll focus on how to do the 'gag' better…not how badly he failed…
    2. As a performer, he knew that the reason people watch this stuff is that occasionally spectacular failures happen…people don't keep tuning in if that's not the case…the show would have failed and been canceled long ago. Failure is absolutely necessary occasionally for ratings to stay up…
    Again, I would never have wished for this guy to be hurt but there's a huge amount of personal responsibility on the part of this family… It's tough to hear, but it's showbiz….

    Re: Tom Terry

    I get your point, I just thought your comment was a little bit too harsh, that's all!

    Maybe he knew what could happen, but doing stunts seems to be his passion after all..
    let's just hope he'll recover and learn from this.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – you are such a fucking idiot. i work at a business in which i come in contact with people from pretty much everywhere around the world. besides Australians, Europeans are most definitely the nicest and most polite people ever. they all speak or at least try to speak english and do a pretty damn good job at it too. there are very few Americans that are bilingual. once again, illusions of grandeur. Americans are by far the rudest and the most dumbed down group of people i have to deal with as evidenced by most of your posts. i too am an American, however because of people like you it is getting harder and harder to be proud of it.

  99. Sane1 says – reply to this


    Why are you all making this an issue of nationality? Stunt are done all over the world.
    This man is very seriously injured and should be in our prayers. No matter who, no matter where. Period.

    It looked way worse live… but they said that he'd be okay soon… I don't get that someone can be this stupid and jump over cars!
