VR Rollercoaster Freakout
By Mark McConville
HILARIOUS video footage has emerged that shows a guy completely freaking out in a public mall as he tries a virtual reality headset for the first time.
The amusing clip shows the young man standing on a raised movable platform with railings while he watched a clip of a rollercoaster simulator in a VR headset.
As the virtual reality gets more intense and the platform starts to tilt back and forth the guy clings onto the barriers for dear life and he falls over and shouts out in fear.
The funny footage was taken at Avenues Mall in Jacksonville, Florida by local American student Jeremy Ollar (21) and shows his friend Elijah.
“While on the VR ride Elijah got scared and freaked out because he isn’t used to virtual reality,” he said.
“He had never experienced it before. It’s funny and everyone laughs at it. It’s something that you want to show to your friends.
“I’m not sure of the exact name of the game but it is some sort of rollercoaster ride.”
In the clip Elijah’s friends can be heard laughing as he gets scared and urging him to open his eyes.
The humorous incident seems to have attracted a large crowd to watch as Elijah gets the living daylights scared out of him while the salesman can’t help but laugh as he tries to offer some advice.
