...This just in--- Tigers & Penguins celebrate new years!!!
kiint
wow...that tiger and penguin thing is new since I submitted this. I think CBS updated it and really does consider it a palette cleanser.

Cube
The tiger kitten and penguin thing was totally a balancer. It brought a whole "newborn life and death" dimension to this.

Charles
Maybe a little too soon?
fredfrankel
not soon enough for CBS!

divinitycycle
so many kinds of win!
Frank Rizzo
I think he lost.

1 star

RocketBlender
I'm with Frank, not really a big fan of watching people DIE.

Mister Yuck
One star for snuff.

Camonk
Man seriously

Subfuscious
You're an ass.

Camonk
No I'm not, fuck you!! Oh, wait, I... I think I understand...

RocketBlender
Maybe it's an unofficial rule or just a courtesy, but I thought we had a thing here about no videos of people dying.

Freeman Gordon
Olympic Games should be considered as satisfying exception though.

sosage
Guess what. It's not.

SixDigitDebt
I refuse to rate this, but at the same time I can't believe the vag factor over it. People die in horrible ways (quite often FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR WORSE THAN THIS) all the freakin' time and no one reacts quite so strongly.

This species sucks.

(I'm wasted, don't take me seriously)

Eroticus E
People die, moron. That doesn't mean I want to watch it happen, or find any entertainment in it.

Vag factor indeed, douchebag.

SixDigitDebt
And I bet morbid curiosity had you watching that video at least once. You're a horrible little person just like the rest of us. Go sit down.

RocketBlender
People die, I know that. I don't live in some fantasy world where everyone lives forever, I just don't want to video footage of it mixed in with my comedy and cats.

RocketBlender
Oh yeah, forgot to mention it, but also fuck you, divinitycycle, for using 'win' as a noun. And for using it to describe this.

sosage
Preaching to us about death and snuff vids is like preaching to us about bouncer culture after watching a MMA clip.

You are only convincing us that you may be a tool of some kind.

P.S. "No snuff" was one of the POETV commandments from day 1.

Eroticus E
For what it's worth, I didn't watch the clip.

oogaBooga
Man, I really needed that tiger and penguin palette cleanser afterwards. Strategically placed, CBS. Bravo.
splatterbabble
Saccharine makes the harsh medicine go down better.

TheQuakeSoldier
Don't miss the exciting follow-up, Brazilian TV Helicopter Crash!

CBSnews.com is apparently the new Ogrish.
Sacks5thAvenButt
Ogrish broke my soul in the 8th grade

James Woods
srsly

that was pretty disturbing.

Scynne
I just heard about this around 20 minutes ago. My asshole city made the most dangerous luge track in the history of mankind.
James Woods
Nice work west coast. :P

BorrowedSolution
5-starring Vancouver's evil.

mouser
We never had that problem in Montreal. Not that luge if very big either in summerlimpics.

The sound of the video is more terrifying IMHO.

But 1 because this is not the place for this video.

FB is.

Hooker
Well, it's in Whistler, so Vancouver proper can sleep soundly. Sort-of.

Also, as I understand it, he didn't die immediately, so this possibly isn't snuff.

Konversekid
They showed this on CTV which is Canadian news channel with the exclusive Olympic rights this year. The second I saw the crash my response was: "Holy fuck they put this on TV" and then they proceeded to show it again in slow motion.
Colonel Cowlung
NBC played it at least three times on their national evening news. It's not exactly gruesome video, other than someone dying. Still I was surprised to see it broadcast over the USA's public airwaves. More than once.

Five stars for history.

Valvados
You can hear the *clang*. :( God, that's horrifying.

Five stars for the pure evil of CBS keeping this video active.
klingerbgoode
welp the olympics sure started with a bang
notascientist
More like a clang/cruch/sickening thud like someone hitting a watermelon with an aluminium baseball bat. One star for snuff.

Hooper_X
but i'm from georgia and i don't see lex luger anywhere :(
Riskbreaker
When does the Running man starts showing on tv?
Jeriko-1
That really hit the spot!

MaulLove
:(
Michael Houser
Saw it on the tv earlier - might as well be here.
Real nice of the local stations to freeze-frame it just as he's losing control.
"The rest is too shocking to show."
"That would be great, if I didn't just see it on CBS. Now I can fill in the fucking rest from memory."
Caminante Nocturno
I'm 5-starring this for the same reasons most people are one-starring it.
FABIO
Luge is one of those sports I watch and say, "No really dude. You don't have to do that."
Chibisuke
Well at least it was quick and painless.

What were they thinking building a course with unpadded metal bars next to it though?
cognitivedissonance
As we've seen in no less than four Indiana Jones movies, a luger is always beaten by whiplash.
ztc
Ouch

Caminante Nocturno
How offensive!

Rabid Vegan
Yeah nice going there, CBS.
Reality_Unknown
Are huge metal beams along the tracks really an optimal solution? Would that kinda shit fly on any other racing tracks?
Gwago
One star for poor taste. R.I.P.
kingarthur
One star for snuff. We can find that everywhere else on the internets, no need to post it here.
Magical Man from Happy-Land
watching people die gets me so fucking HARD
kennydra
It's not like there's blood and guts. Y'all five starred the horrible truck crash video even though 4 people died in that. And what about that one from way back where the floor collapses? This is just horrible, but not gruesome. And CBS's tagline deal at the end is definitely evil enough.
TeenerTot
I can't rate this. I wish I hadn't watched it at all.

:(
FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown
Five stars for people who don't even know what snuff is.
FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown
Hint: It's not the Hindenburg disaster, the Zapruder film, or this.

chairsforcheap
oh, ok! Now i feel great that i just watched someone get killed in a horrific way!

asshole

Aeschylus
>>chairsforcheap

You have a video of where he died later in the hospital? Maybe you should post that.

Morons...

Lurchi
One star for me, for watching it.
APE_GOD
Absolutely five stars for this. The CBS logo flashes up, while you are still soaking in the sudden violence of the end of that clip only to be replaced, just as suddenly, with the image of a chubby and awkward tiger kitten in a pink dress galumphing around and screaming.

All in the space of three seconds.

Massive head trauma. Market branding. Infant animal in drag.

Boom. boom. boom.

Awesome.

(to the detractors: I am curious about what definition of 'evil' are you using)
APE_GOD
hurr durr Epiphany ate my stars

Potrod
Not sure why this gets tons of outrage and 1-stars while the South Korean Chinook helicopter crashing and blowing up while placing a momument on a bridge gets zero outrage and not a single rating (out of 18) under 4 stars.

Yeah, the 3 Korean soldiers that were killed are hidden in the cockpit making it a bit less gruesome looking, but the bottom line is you're still watching multiple people die. I can't think of any off the top of my head, but I very much doubt that those are the only 2 videos showing people dying on poetv, and I also doubt that most of them get this kind of outrage.
Riskbreaker
If you haven't noticed there's some awful double-standards going on here, just pretend you didn't notice.

Also, i'm glad i haven't seen that video.
