When our friend Matt Cramer sends stuff in that he’s found online, we often laugh. Matt is a true BANGshifter, and he has a wicked sense of humor, but this one just might take the cake. Here’s what Matt said in his email to us. “Here’s a video I recently ran across: “Staplerfahrer Klaus” (Forklift Driver Klaus), a German parody (with English subtitles) of forklift training films. This one starts off as just the usual cases of incredibly stupid mistakes and incredibly bad luck that you’d see in a cheesy industrial safety training film, but it keeps escalating until the accidents go full on Final Destination levels of absurdity, with special effects out of a no-budget ’80s slasher flick.”
With a description like that how could we resist watching? To be perfectly clear though, this is full of 1980’s style slasher film gore so consider yourself warned. If cheesy fake blood and such bothers you, then don’t watch this one.
I own a forklift, that we are using extensively while building our new shop and I can tell you that there have been several things that wouldn’t quite measure up to proper safety standards during its use. With that said, we’ve been buying more and more equipment for it so that we can use it more effectively and safely because my fat ass will not look good if I fall off the damn thing. Watch Forklift Driver Klaus, it’s funny and will make you laugh. And it might make you say “Hey! I did that before!”
