Yes, this was clearly the game operator's fault entirely.
He accepted the Rasta banana

I sincerely doubt that this is the first time this guy has been that guy.
I wonder if he knows Walmart sells that Kinect crap for a lot less than 00

Shit they aught to give that carney an award for teaching this dude a lesson.
I love the footage of him walking around with the banana in tow. Its like his albatross. He must carry it forever to mark his shame.
Ah! well-aday! what evil looks
Had I from old and young!
Instead of the cross, the Rasta Banana
About my neck was hung.
I hope this turns "rasta banana" into a new fail meme.
Buckets buckets everywhere, but not a ball did sink.
The balls in tubs overpowered him and forced him to go home and get more money.

Yeah, this genius is clearly the first person to realize that Martingale betting strategies don't work.
That'd make a great anime. Regular Joe loses everything he has to his own hubris. Now, cut adrift from everything he once loved and slowly going mad, he is cursed to journey through the grim underbelly of 21st century America, carrying a giant stuffed banana that turns into a wise-cracking animal companion (voiced by Samuel L Jackson) only he can see.
The guy's life instantly becomes a Twilight Zone episode.

When your entire life savings amount to a couple thousand bucks, maybe you shouldn't be gambling any of it away.

There are many games of skill and avenues of gambling that have ruined or humbled people. "Tubs o' Fun" shouldn't have been one of them.
Someone should have probably told him that you can get a Kinect from from Walmart for 0. Also, someone should have told him it's not even worth that.
The news reporters laughing at the end and barley being able to stop laughing to apologize for laughing are wonderful.
I wish I could say it was because he wanted to get attention.
I wish I could say that.
Cynically don't you wonder if this is just an underhanded attempt by the carnies to generate interest in the carnival. The guy looks like a carny himself, tattoos on his arms! I truly won something like that once, smaller, a big grinning crescent moon with sunglasses, obviously inspired by a then-recent McDonald's commercial with a similar character playing a piano on a rooftop to tell you that many restaurants are open later than you may have realized. A child would automatically assume it was a teddy bear-like plush toy however it wasn't even filled with batting/stuffing but styrofoam and was made in 3 peices of cheapass plastic fabric, 2 to make the body (1 seam), the other being the sunglasses and I threw it at someone's windshield in the middle of the night a couple years later. Worth 4 tickets. ? Not bragging, my friend won the same thing. I have no fucking clue what the game was but any 8 year old could beat it and get a couple hundred grams of low grade petrochemical for some card paper that cost more expensive resilient paper that cost 1/4 hour or so time and professional middle class skiiled labor (of parents)

yeah! Now If someone threw its head at me off an overpass at 2AM i'd just laugh-- not go spastic flying over the f'ing median strip in my IROC Z and get all the credit next morning when I didn't really do anything creatively
i'll meetcha down at the big yellow joint
